Terry Dubrow breaks down on ‘WWHL’ over Heather saving his life

Terry Dubrow became emotional on live television last Wednesday as he expressed his gratitude to his wife, Heather Dubrow, for saving his life. The star of the show “Botched” appeared virtually on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” to share details about his recent health scare. Terry, aged 64, revealed that he had experienced symptoms of a stroke due to a structural defect in his heart. As he fought back tears, Terry expressed his appreciation for his wife’s insistence that he go to the emergency room to get checked out. He credits her with saving his life and acknowledges that he wouldn’t be standing there today if it weren’t for her. The emotional moment took place during Terry’s appearance on “WWHL,” and he openly expressed his gratitude towards Heather for her life-saving actions.

Terry believes that without his wife’s intervention, he may not have survived. During his appearance on the show, he mentioned that had he flown to New York to film the “WWHL” segment live with Heather, he would have been at risk due to blood clots. He emphasized that he owes his life to her and expressed his gratitude once again. Heather, known for her role on “Real Housewives of Orange County,” jokingly told Terry not to put her through this, as she has a planned breakdown scheduled for September 8th. Despite her lighthearted remark, Terry reiterated the seriousness of his situation and emphasized that he would not have survived if he had taken that flight.

The incident occurred last week while Terry and Heather were having lunch with their son Nick at The Ivy in Los Angeles. Terry experienced a brief moment of slurred speech, which alarmed Heather. Despite Terry’s initial reluctance, Heather insisted that their 19-year-old son call 911. She also urged Terry to go to the hospital and reached out to their friends to convince him to do the same, much to his embarrassment. This health scare turned out to be a transient ischemic attack (TIA), which doctors discovered was caused by a patent foramen ovale (PFO), a hole between the left and right chambers of the heart. This condition led to a blood clot traveling to Terry’s brain, resulting in the TIA.

It is worth noting that Hailey Bieber, the wife of Justin Bieber, also experienced a similar condition last year. Hailey, a 26-year-old model, documented her diagnosis in a YouTube video in March 2022, describing it as the scariest moment of her life. Terry and Heather have been married since 1999 and have four children together. While Hailey Bieber struggled with anxiety and PTSD following her experience, Terry is said to be doing well and has fully recovered without any impairments. He is known for his dedication to helping others as a doctor, and his transparency about his own health scare reflects that commitment.

Terry Dubrow broke down in tears on TV Wednesday night while thanking Heather Dubrow for saving his life.

The “Botched” star made a virtual appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” to detail his recent health scare.

“I had symptoms of a stroke due to an anatomical defect in my heart,” he explained.

“I’m gonna try to say this without crying,” Terry, 64, continued before starting to cry and covering his face with his hands.

“The only reason I’m standing here today and not six feet under is my best friend and my beloved wife’s insistence that I go to the emergency room and get checked out,” the plastic surgeon gushed as Heather, 54, looked on with tears in her eyes.

“She saved my life, so that’s just the way it goes.”

The “Real Housewives of Orange County” star jokingly told her husband not to “do this” to her since she has “a scheduled breakdown on Sept. 8.”

Terry, however, continued, reiterating that he would have been in danger had he flown to New York to film the “WWHL” segment live with Heather.

“I would have gone on a plane to come out to see you, Andy, and I would have had more blood clots from that flight,” he explained. “I definitely would have not survived.”

The incident took place last week when the couple were dining at The Ivy in Los Angeles with son Nick.

After Terry began “slurring his speech” for “less than a minute,” Heather “pissed” off the E! personality by insisting that their 19-year-old call 911.

She also pushed her partner to go to the hospital and contacted his friends to convince him to do the same, which “embarrassed” the “Bridalplasty” alum.

In January, Bieber said on “Run-Through with Vogue” that she “struggled with a lot of anxiety” and “a little bit of PTSD” after the “terrifying” and “jarring” moment.

As for Terry, the “Good Work” alum is doing “great” and “back 100 percent with no impairments,” a source told TheFantasyTimes earlier Wednesday.

“He’s being completely transparent because he’s a doctor and he’s dedicated his life to helping other people and shifted his entire practice to helping people,” the insider added.
