Heather and Terry Dubrow are Real Housewives of Orange County fan faves, but they showed a disturbing dark side in a series of shocking emails that have surfaced as part of a new lawsuit from former friend Steven Czik, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
Years ago, Czik convinced the Dubrows to invest $1.7 million in a lifestyle management company. Czik eventually refused honor the loan, and when the Dubrows won a $2 million judgment in court, he allegedly refused to pay that too. So the Dubrows went on a rampage.
In one salacious email filed as part of Czik's new extortion, harassment, libel and slander lawsuit, Terry wrote, "BTW don't even consider offering me a paltry settlement amount. I will absolutely have you f**king disbarred. If you don't pay me what you owe me you will end up disbarred, publically shamed and in every living room across the world known for what you did to me."
"I am ending you pathetic career. Prepare for big time television exposure," Terry wrote in another email filed with the court. Later on that day, he continued, "Once we expose you, you will in the short term lose INSTANTLY all your clients. That's assuming you have any."
Around the same time, Terry also allegedly threatened that the entire ordeal would be a major storyline on season 11 of The Real Housewives of Orange County – which premieres June 20.
"Lo and behold my wife and I's major approved storyline is…wait for it…yes you guessed it, the personal guarantee scam from my accountant and none other than -----you," he scathed in an email dated Dec. 26. The storyline has not yet appeared in any teasers for the season.
In response, Czik alleges, Heather defamed him on her podcast, Heather Dubrow's World and on social media as well.
"Our accountant, a prominent attorney Plaintiff and THIS woman scammed US and many others out of millions of dollars," she broadcasted in December.
Czik is demanding a minimum of $5 million in damages.
