As ridiculous as Courtney Stoddencan be, I feel like people are just ready to pounce and pick her apart no matter what she says, does, or wears. Yes, she has been giving everyone a lot of material to work with since she married her much older husband Doug Hutchison when she was sixteen back in 2011.
Now the 21-year-old tabloid fixture is pregnant with her first child and as expected she has been very open about this phase in her life. She has been sharing photos on social media and doing interviews to update the public on her pregnancy. She does not know the sex of her baby yet, but she has already been shopping outfits and they are all for little girls. Courtney is saying that no matter what gender her baby is that he or she will still be wearing those same clothes and she has some really questionable reasoning for that plan.
Brandi Redmond may have been too drunk to refrain from peeing in a red solo cup on the trip to Austin, but she was not too drunk to be horrified by LeeAnne Locken’s midnight meltdown! In her blog, Brandi discusses the mess that is LeeAnne, and calls her out for constantly using her troubled childhood as an excuse for unacceptable behavior as an adult.
But first, because this is The Real Housewives of Dallas, Brandi must discuss the peeing! And the pooping! She explains, “Peeing in a solo cup is one of my hidden talents and I’m sure I will do it again some day. LeeAnne’s reaction was ridiculous considering her poop in a bag story. I actually didn’t believe LeeAnne when she denied it because Tiffany [Hendra] had already confirmed the story. So, all I could think was whatever, poopy pants!”
She really is the girl next door! The Real Housewives of Dallas has found a keeper in Stephanie Hollman, who is bringing a little bit of “real” to Reality TV, yet managing to entertain us along the way. All without screaming in another woman’s face, demanding apologies from people for 16 straight weeks, or forcing her “journey” down our throats. How does she do it? According to Stephanie, who I got a chance to chat with this week, it’s about being who you are – cameras or no cameras. Below, Stephanie breaks down her reality, whether it’s true friendship with Brandi Redmond, firm boundaries with LeeAnne Locken, or how her spiritual upbringing keeps her sane today.
How has life changed since your debut on RHOD? “I will say it’s been very hard. Even before the first episode came out, people were harsh. But now I’ve been getting 95% positive feedback from Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. I stay off of other websites because I feel like people will take time to be negative rather than positive.”
Have you recovered from Nightmare On Dorinda’s Street yet? Well, apparently, Luann de Lesseps has! Because she breezes through her blog this week on the wings of a bird who got sniped a few times, but eventually broke free from the cage of horrors that was The Real Housewives of New York!
Bottom line: Luann thinks Bethenny Frankel had it out for her from the very start. She accuses, “From the get-go, Bethenny decided that I was her prey and she was going to kill me with words. Obviously she’s been harboring a lot of anger towards me. I was surprised as I spent a lot of time with her over the summer, and she never shared her feelings with me. In fact, we talked about it at the beginning of the season, and she’s still holding a grudge.”
Brandi Redmond may have mended fences with the perpetually “Doesn’t Do Hurt!” LeeAnne Locken. But that doesn’t mean she trusts her! So, she’s keeping her friends close and her carny tricks enemies closer, eh? In her blog this week, the Real Housewives of Dallas star advises Cary Deuber – LeeAnne’s latest target – to do the same.
But first, Brandi clarifies, “I want you all to know how much I love the Hollman’s and I always enjoy Travis’s National Holiday. When Stephanie [Hollman]called to tell me that she invited LeeAnne to Travis’s party, I truly didn’t care. It’s not my place to say whom someone can or cannot invite. I own that I’m a big girl and can control my emotions and behave at social gatherings.”
Stephanie Hollman’s version of going deep on this week’s Real Housewives of Dallas equals jumping out of a cake for hubby Travis and seeing LeeAnne Locken in a whole new light – after one (weirdly aggressive!) public speaking engagement. Oh well. At least she’s tryin’! In her blog, Stephanie discusses the finer points of Travis’ birthday party, why she values her bestie Brandi Redmond, and how she thinks LeeAnne is worth a second chance.
“Every year I plan an over the top party for Travis. He loves celebrating his birthday and always wants a big party or dinner to celebrate the magical day of his birth,” explains Stephanie. The magical day of his birth? Is this why Travis constantly looks like a grumpy baby with a dirty diaper? Arrested development does not even begin to cover this Elmo Has A Birthday level of play!
