The mother-of-two then hinted at even more drama headed our way.

“I have never in my life had a black eye like that,” she said.

“And I think, in many ways, it was the universe letting me know that I had hit my limit in terms of what I was willing to endure. I think all the viewers will see that this season.”

Heather then spilled more details about the incident, explaining that it happened during a trip with the other housewives.

“Whitney and I… I never thought our friendship got to the point of throwing blows,” she said. “I mean, I know she’s openly denied giving me the black eye.

“It’s just funny to me that anyone would think that Heather could ever get to the point where she would give me a black eye. This is my cousin; this is my girl!”

She continued: “But there’s no doubt that the dynamics shift this season a lot. And we’re just going to kind of have to see how it all plays out. I’m just as invested in it as everybody, trust me.”
