As a viewer (who is far, far, away from Texas), I feel like LeeAnne Lockenmakes Real Housewives of Dallas worth watching. All of the cast members on the opposite couch at the reunion do not have the same feelings. Personally it just seems like LeeAnne is a little unhinged, but ultimately harmless, but I’ve never experienced any of this in person (unfortunately) so I have no idea what she is really like.
Even though she started Season 2 out as LeeAnne’s good friend, Brandi Redmondis at odds again with the queen of the show- sorry, but it’s true. If LeeAnne wasn’t on this show, there would be no show. Brandi answered a lot of questions about LeeAnne and her own behavior during her recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
The ladies of The Real Housewives of Dallas have assembled for a well-deserved two-part reunion. The set is Texafied with a fireplace, cow skin run and lots of random horns all over the place. Cary Deuber prepares herself to “mind dump” everything in her head. The two camps gather before the face off on the couches. Brandi Redmond claims that’s she ready to beat a bitch up. She went from mean girl to downright vicious. Host, Andy Cohen greets the ladies. We learn that Mama Dee Simmons has prepped daughter, D’Andra Simmons with recorded questions (??). Stephanie Hollman plans to move into her new house around January. Brandi takes the first jab, explaining that she’s not pregnant, but instead pre-menopausal, possibly even going through the change before ex-pal LeeAnne Locken.
The fun begins. First up, a reunion staple, the “look at how much fun we’re having” package, full of pool swans, worm shots, hot dog costumes and tickling dildos. Andy takes this time to ask Kameron Westcott about her dog food line – it’s doing well. Onto the second package, covering the split of Steph-andi and LeeAnne parading around as Stephanie 2 Face. Brandi once again admits that she was pissed at her on again, off again, now on again friend. Stephanie clarifies that her Bravo blog said it was about Brandi’s husband arriving at a party drunk that was the “slow-moving car crash”, not her marriage. (Haven’t these two had this conversation before this moment?) Again, Brandi says she felt jealous and unimportant and chose not to communicate. Stephanie takes ownership for taking on Brandi so heavily in her life and pulling away. As far as LeeAnne’s costume goes, Steph felt bullied and attacked in her own home. Confused, LeeAnne says that when the trailer dropped she called her costume “amazing”, but she’s “pretty sure” that was just the hot dog one. LeeAnne is quick to call her out about the condescending confessionals, calling Stephanie “mean”, “ugly” and “rude”. Kameron is happy to ask her if she thinks a flesh-eating bacteria is funny – which Stephanie is also quick to regret.
I hoped that NeNe would take the opportunity in the spotlight to apologize for the rape comment she made during her comedy show, but it was not mentioned at all. How suspect. Even so, she was asked a lot of other interesting questions. Yes, I know that she did a Facebook post already, but that just seemed to be more obligatory than sincere.
It’s no secret that this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey is a lot harder for Siggy Flicker than her first one. She went from the peacemaker who couldn’t help crying, to the topic of conversation that couldn’t hold back her tears when her enemies turned up the heat. Aside from the ladies on the show, the viewers are coming for Siggy on Twitter.
Sure, it probably happened before, just like it does with any other reality star, but this season is a brutal one for the relationship expert. Even so, it seems like she can’t help checking her notifications and reading what the people say, which I totally get. Andy Cohen has advised Siggy to stay away from social media.
There’s no better way to start out your weekend than with the best reality star Instagram posts of the week. No need to scroll through your feed or type in all of the names that matter. I got you covered and there was a lot going on this week and this is aside from the Halloween festivities.
The entire Jersey Shore cast (minus one person) got together to celebrate Deena Cortese’s wedding, getting me all nostalgic. The Real Housewives of Dallas stars gathered with Andy Cohen to film the Season 2 reunion and posted a group photo to show off their glamorous ensembles (and spray tans…most likely). Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer went all out when they dressed up as famous pop stars for Halloween. The Vanderpump Rules cast were living it up with appearances at the World Series and an LA clothing store launch. The Southern Charm crew made it very clear that they are filming the next season because they were turning up all over Charleston doing shotskis, watching Monday Night Football, and attending restaurant openings.
Dolores called her a “scumbag” over and over again in an instantly iconic scene. Nevertheless, both the women are standing their ground to this day, so who is telling the truth? Dolores addressed this drama and the rest of RHONJSeason 8 during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
How did Bethenny Frankelhave time and energy to appear on Watch What Happens Live? She’s so busy running her empire, raising her daughter, saving the world, and everything else she has going on. To make matters worse, her beloved dog Cookie just passed away and she still managed to make it to the clubhouse to talk with Andy Cohen.
Bethenny really can do it all: in good times and in bad she is really killing it.
