Dr. Pimple Popper's Husband: Who Is He And How Did They Meet?

Yes, Dr. Pimple Popper's zit bursting videos are gross, but they're also weirdly gratifying to watch. They might make you queasy, but how can you help but be mesmerized watching her remove a pilar cyst or some gnarly blackheads? The dermatologist became so popular for her stomach-churning videos on Instagram and YouTube that she soon found herself starring on her own TLC show. She might have a massive following, but her pimple popping often overshadows her personal life. What is Dr. Pimple Popper's home life like? Does she have a husband?

Yes, Dr. Pimple Popper — whose real name is Dr. Sandra Lee — is married. Her husband, Dr. Jeffrey Rebish, is also a dermatologist. The couple met while they were in medical school in Philadelphia and, according to Rebish, it was love at first sight. "Sandra walked into the room on orientation day, and I knew right away that she was the one," he told Refinery29 in January 2019. They eventually moved to California to take over a dermatology practice owned by Lee's dad, and have been running the business together since.

While they're both dermatologists, pimple popping is Lee's domain. "I handle the administrative side of the practice, while also seeing my own patients," Rebish explained. "But Sandra handles the cosmetic side of things — Botox and fillers, liposuction and eye lifts, and the more complex surgeries you see on TV. It's not what I like to do, but those more theatrical surgeries have always been her specialty."

Things have changed a lot for the newly-minted celeb couple since the TLC show debuted in 2018, but Rebish supports his wife's new TV career. He explained that Lee isn't able to dedicate as much time to their dermatology practice these days, but he's happy to fill in for her. "Ultimately, I'll always be involved any way Sandra needs me to be, because we're a team," said Rebish.

Being supportive doesn't mean that Rebish actually watches the show, though. "I'd just rather not see that stuff outside of the office," he said.
