The Real Housewives of Dallas ladies have really come through for Season 2. After a painfully boring first season, the women really delivered during their sophomore year on TV. A big part of that was thanks to Brandi Redmond, who got into it with pretty much everyone in the cast this year- except for maybe D’Andra Simmons, but if that happened, it must not have been a big deal since it doesn’t come to mind. Or it just happened while I was up for a snack break.
Real Housewives Of Dallas
Season two of Real Housewives of Dallas flew by in a whirlwind of funnel cakes, death threats, pink dog food and constant eye rolls and insults regarding class and zip codes. Looking back, I’m not really sure how I feel about it all, but newcomer D’Andra Simmons does. In her latest blog, she addresses her ride or die loyalty to Just Hands while calling out the “brunch bashers” for their bad behavior.
She begins, “We have come to an end of the season, and I have to say, I am a little melancholy. Luckily we still have a drama filled reunion, but it feels so strange that I won’t be rushing home from work or an event staring at the TV screen at 9PM CST watching The Real Housewives of Dallas with everyone and reacting to the Twitter feed. It has been a crazy fun-filled and rewarding ride. I started this season not knowing what to expect from this journey. It was rough at times, but in the end I am truly glad I decided to take this plunge. My year ended with so many blessings and new opportunities, even in the midst of so much tension. My friendship with LeeAnne Locken has remained strong, although, I never questioned it from the get-go. I found my place among a group of ladies that are still trying to find themselves, and I never lost my identity. I stayed true to who I am. Love me or hate me, I am always the same person, whether that is on camera or in private. My mom and I faced our conflicts head on, and I was able to prove to her that I am ready and able to take over the family business. I now have a company of my own and a bright future full of promise that is truly mine to create. My bestie is finally engaged, and I am excited to help her plan her wedding and a few parties in between. Unfortunately, it looks like our guest list may be shrinking!” Um, you think?
I wonder if I am the only one who loves Stephanie Hollman and LeeAnne Locken. They have been sworn enemies since Real Housewives of Dallas started, but I actually am a huge fan of both ladies. I know it makes zero sense, but I’m just holding out for them to have a surprise friendship like LeeAnne did with Brandi Redmond at the beginning of Season 2.
Unfortunately for me, that doesn’t seem to be a possibility that Stephanie is open to. At. All.
LeeAnne Locken may not have a lot of friends on the cast of The Real Housewives of Dallas, but she can definitely count on Kameron Westcott coming to her defense. Kameron weighs in on this week’s finale episode and has nothing but good things to say about LeeAnne, while questioning the social manners of Brandi Redmond.
Kameron shared her thoughts on the sit down with Cary Deuber, Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman. She adamantly disagrees that LeeAnne was “using” Brandi. “I think it was a good idea for them to all sit down together because I believe they have a lot of issues to address amongst each other. For just three people, they seem to have a lot of drama with each other, but they all seem to make up extremely easily! They all attacked each other’s families in some way, but they’re somehow all friends again? As far as LeeAnne goes…I don’t think LeeAnne would ever use somebody. She’s a genuine person and doesn’t need to tag herself onto anyone. She fights her own battles on her own. Why would she use Brandi? That’s so silly.”
The Real Housewives of Dallas wrapped up its second season this week and Cary Deuber is relieved that it’s over. (Well, except for those grueling reunion episodes, of course) She shares her final thoughts in the last blog of the season. Cary is glad for everything she went through with some of her co-stars is but is still confused by the level of nastiness coming from LeeAnne Locken.
Cary shares that she expects a certain amount of crazy, but she’s glad season two is done and over. “I have to admit, I’m ready to be done with this messy season. Of course, in situations like this, it’s expected to have one’s fair share of drama and scandal.” Adding, “However, I strongly feel that SO many of our group conflicts would have been completely avoidable had we all done better at communicating with each other, and as we’ve all seen over the course of this year, straightforward communication is easier for some than others. This applies to friendships AND relationships.”
The season two finale of The Real Housewives of Dallas is upon us. The ladies have appeared to come full circle, resulting three versus three, with little hope of resolution. Cary Deuber successfully played her way into the “middle” all season, and now has a tight alliance Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman. Brandi turned on LeeAnne Locken real quick and the war rages on – onto the third season, we hope. If you haven’t already, tell your friends to watch this show. They’ve earned another season. On with the show:
LeeAnne and D’Andra Simmons are engagement party planning. There is a theme and a surprise! I’m friends with LeeAnne its carnival-themed! It’s going to be more Cirque du Soleil than county fair. Keeping it classy people! Expect an eatable cotton candy wall and a “lounge pocket”, whatever that is. D’Andra is all too excited to plan a follow-up engagement brunch for the day after. Even Mama Dee Simmons approves of LeeAnne and Rich, but she’s got a date the night of the party, so don’t expect to see her. Speaking of moms, we find out that LeeAnne’s mama is coming. We’re told she and LeeAnne are estranged and LeeAnne is hoping for a resolution.
Cary Deuber has a lot to say about last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Dallas. She admits she felt sad, defeated, and alone after Brandi-Land. “Love and trust – two qualities that I expect from my friends,” shares Cary. “Right now, I am not feeling either.”
About her talk with Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman, Cary explains, “I was respectful and direct with beginning my explanation. However, LeeAnne [Locken] didn’t want for the FULL story or my apology to be heard at all. When she didn’t get a reaction out of me, that’s when the glass throwing happened … I think it’s true when people are put under pressure, their true selves are shown.”
It feels like there is a revolving door of friendships on Real Housewives of Dallas– in a good way though. They argue, talk shit, make up, and the argue about something new. It’s the way Real Housewives should be- unlike some other shows in the franchise that drag out the same plot line for YEARS.
One of the many confusing relationships on RHOD is the one between LeeAnne Locken and Brandi Redmond. Last season, they could not stand each other. Season 2 started out with Brandi being on the outs with her ride or die Stephanie Hollman and leaning on LeeAnne (of all people!) for support and that is why this show is actually so good in it’s second season: the story keeps moving forward.
