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.
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 Housewivesshould be- unlike some other shows in the franchise that drag out the same plot line for YEARS.
One of the many confusing relationships on RHODis 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.
Well what do you know–a housewife is expressing remorse over her actions! Is there a blue moon tonight? Did a pig just fly by my window? Brandi Redmond feels downright horrible for insinuating her friend and Real Housewives of Dallascohort was shagging Dr. Dueber when she was a nanny for her now-stepchildren. Following? I’m sure LeeAnne Locken will end up as somewhat culpable, but at least she’ll own it, right?
In her blog, Brandi apologizes for her White Party accusations against Cary Dueber and hopes to explain some of what viewers may have missed in the glass throwing mayhem and subsequent pink kibble craziness. She begins, “Thank you all again for watching and keeping up with all our shenanigans. First, as I write this, my eyes are overwhelmingly pouring with tears. I am truly sorry for the pain, heartache, and embarrassment I’ve caused the Deuber family. I love and respect the family as my friends and their practice. I have never done something so low and hurtful in my life. Not only am I disappointed in myself, but I can’t imagine how people must feel that are constantly on the move to bring others down. It’s exhausting, and my soul is beyond empty for that darkness I created. I know time heals all things, and my prayers are for healing the Deuber family and myself so that I never let anyone down that I love and care about.” Sounds pretty sincere, I’d say!
It’s sad to know that next week will be the season finale of The Real Housewives of Dallas. This show has been an escape since August. It has been a strong season filled with drama, laughs and dick jokes. This week proves once again that the cast has all equally pulled their weight. New girls, Kameron Westcott and D’Andra Simmons have also made a name for themselves. D’Andra hasn’t been the catalyst for any drama, yet is still arguably coming across the best this season. Never boring, D’Andra keeps it real and hasn’t shied away from an opinion yet. Kameron has committed to not being taken seriously, and it works. We’ve laughed (and sometimes rolled our eyes) through all of her moments and got to see what pink dog food looks like. We know you were wondering…
This episode picks up with Stephanie Hollman patiently teaching her son the alphabet with a Tutor. She’s happy to see that his confidence is growing and feels good about his progress. Later, we learn that her husband Travis also suffered from dyslexia growing up. And now he’s a multi-millionaire. Stephanie smiles as she realizes that her son is going to be just fine.
