Heather Dubrow’s former assistant and podcast co-host, Natalie Puche, is speaking out and slamming the Real Housewives of Orange County alum for abruptly giving her the axe while on maternity leave.

In a statement issued by Natalie Puche via her Instagram account on Wednesday — she alludes to being blindsided by the termination, stating that her “journey is sadly coming to an end. I’m sorry I won’t be able to say my proper goodbyes (as this was not by choice) but I hope to be able to still connect with you on my journey into motherhood, an unforeseen career adjustment and all of the beautiful, hideous and honest moments in between.”

“This is a tough one….For those who have followed my journey on the HDW Podcast / Heather’s Assistant for the past 4/8 years , my journey is sadly coming to an end. I’m sorry I won’t be able to say my proper goodbyes (as this was not by choice) but I hope to be able to still connect with you on my journey into motherhood, an unforeseen career adjustment and all of the beautiful, hideous and honest moments in between. I have so much love for you guys and have truly appreciated having you all on this crazy journey of mine!
So with that, I won’t say goodbye, just see you soon! 🙏🏻♥️😘.”

As of yesterday (November 20), the two were on great terms  — as Heather Dubrow commented on one of Natalie’s photos posted on Instagram — describing the new mother as, “Beautiful, smart, creative, amazing woman and a great mom!”

 

The sad part of this story is, the termination occurred while Natalie Puche was actively exercising her maternity leave and it’s apparent that the firing came as a complete shock based on her comments on social media. 

On September 23, longtime staffer, executive director, and Heather Dubrow’s World podcast co-host, Natalie Puche, welcomed her baby girl, Piper Rose. After the birth, Heather Dubrow congratulated Natalie on Instagram and appeared excited about Natalie’s new addition to her family.
