Heather Dubrow Believes in the 'Housewives Marriage Curse' and Thinks Kelly Dodd Could Be Next
Is the Real Housewives marriage curse for real? Heather Dubrow seems to think so.

"A lot of people feel like some women come on the show because they know their marriage is in trouble," the Orange County star tells ET. "They're looking for a way out, or looking for something for themselves."

The franchise has seen its fair share of divorces. Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Lynn Curtin, Jeana Keough, Luann de Lesseps, Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Jules Wainstein, Porsha Williams, Phaedra Parks, NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Camille Grammer, Yolanda Hadid and Adrienne Maloof are just some of the stars who have split with their husbands after appearing on the Bravo series. 

Heather says the curse might strike again in Orange County now that Kelly Dodd has joined the cast.

"I think there's a lot of red flags with Kelly and her marriage," Heather admits. "Unfortunately it sounds like the makings of a typical Housewives marriage."

On a recent episode, Kelly confessed she and her husband, Michael, had been through marital troubles.

"Before I got married, Michael was perfect," Kelly said. "And then when we got married, he became like Hitler. He was a control freak. I felt like he was controlling every aspect of my life, and then we filed for divorce but we weren't legally divorced."

Kelly and Michael were separated for two years -- she was even engaged to another man! -- before getting back together. Kelly told her co-stars she decided to "suck it up" and keep her family together, because it was "easier." When Shannon Beador asked Kelly if she loved Michael, she didn't answer Shannon directly. Instead she said, "He's a really nice person, you know what I mean?"

"I was sad to hear Kelly talk about her husband the way she did," Heather admits. "As far as I'm concerned, most things are forgivable. But to compare your husband to Hitler? I'm not sure how you recover from that one."
