Terry Dubrow has some explaining to do after he was seen hawking some high-priced COVID-19 tests on a shopping network amid the Omicron surge that's sweeping through the globe.
Heather Dubrow's plastic surgeon-turned-reality star husband was caught by fans selling the at-home virus detection kits during a live broadcast on Shop HQ earlier this week.
Holding the box of the hard to get Flow Flex, Terry appeared on the show as the professional doctor to give the test credibility.
COVID-19 home tests are extremely hard to get throughout the U.S. at the moment following the uptick in Omicron cases after the holidays. To find one at a pharmacy these days is rare and forget about ordering online due to the demand and out-of-this-world price hike.
Real Housewives of Orange County fans are shaking their heads in disbelief at Terry, slamming him for feeding into the high-priced propaganda.
Pushing hard to make a sale, Terry dropped every buzzword under the sun to describe Flow Flex. Telling the Shop HQ audience that the 15-minute test is "extremely precise" and "accurate" with a zero percent false positive rate, he urged everyone to drop $119 for the kit.
According to NationNews Now host Dan Abrams, that's a 140% markup. Terry's kit comes with 6 tests, which doesn't explain the cost.
As one person pointed out, one Flow Flex test at CVS costs $9.99. Times that by 6 and it's nowhere near Terry's price. After @facereality16 posted the RHOC star's controversial Shop HQ broadcast, fans went IN on the surgeon.
"This should be illegal," one pissed-off follower wrote. "I work at CVS. The amount of people we have coming in for at-home tests is astronomical. We keep running out. People are desperate. It is beyond upsetting to me to see price gouging," added another. "Nope! I'll stick with CVS😂 I'm not helping pay for another ugly Cheesecake Factory Mcmansion home," shared a third.
Someone else brought the Dubrows' archenemy into the chat. "#kellydodd is going to have a field day #rickleventhal," they joked. Sadly, U.K. followers reminded everyone that at-home COVID tests are free overseas.
As of this post, neither Terry, Heather, nor Kelly have addressed the backlash.
