So why is Heather not in season 7? Well, speaking before season seven was filmed, Tarek El Moussa's wife herself suggested she may only be in a few episodes after confessing she wasn't invited back following her maternity leave with son, Tristan.

When asked how this made her feel, she admitted she was a "little frustrated" and was "not sure" why she wasn't back on set.
More recently, Netflix dropped the trailer and promo image for the new season where Heather wasn't present.
Commenting on the move on Instagram, she said: "Looks like I got pushed in the water. It's a good thing I can swim! Congrats to my girls on S7! You may see me in a few episodes…"
