Cary Deuber

The Honest Tea heats up

This episode of The Real Housewives of Dallas had everything, a proposal, women (and men) behaving badly and of course, a charity event. Perhaps what’s most refreshing about Dallas is that all the women play ball. This episode could potentially go down as a defining moment in this show’s run. It channeled “The Dinner Party from Hell” on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and even rivaled some moments from some of The Real Housewives of New York City trips to remember. No one held back when they sat down for tea for what seemed like nine and one-half hours. Here we go…

The show opens with a charity event. It’s the Essential Energy Fall Reception and guess who’s the keynote speaker? LeeAnne Locken, naturally. D’Andra Simmons and Kameron Westcott come to show their support. LeeAnne’s speech covers overcoming obstacles and the need to belong. Each week we learn a little more about D’Andra. This week, through her correlation to LeeAnne’s story, we hear that she too suffered from abandonment issues coming from a broken home. Mama Dee left her father and it destroyed his life. On a positive note, we’re treated to a fantastic vintage picture with Dee having the biggest hairdo in Texas.

Cary annoyed

When this Real Housewives of Dallas season started out, it seemed like Cary Deuber was going to be caught in the middle of the two friend groups in the cast. She became besties with Stephanie Hollman and the two new Housewives Kameron Westcott and D’Andra Simmons were introduced to the show as friends of Cary’s and LeeAnne Locken’s.

After the last episode, that doesn’t seem to be the case with Cary going on a girls trip with Stephanie and Brandi Redmond. Now it seems like the cast is really split in half. Plus Cary, Brandi, Stephanie went on Watch What Happens Live right after the last episode aired, establishing themselves as one of two trios in the Dallas cast.

At this point Real Housewives of Dallas is essentially The LeeAnne Locken Show. It seems like everyone is either talking about LeeAnne or waiting for an excuse to bring her up again. This season got off to an interesting start when Brandi Redmond went from being attached at the hip with Stephanie Hollman during Season 1 to ignoring her for her new friend LeeAnne.

Brandi’s friendship with LeeAnne came to an end as soon as she and Stephanie made up. Brandi put the nail in the coffin of that relationship when she decided to invite Steph and Cary Deuber to a girls trip to Memphis and did not include LeeAnne. Even though LeeAnne wasn’t invited, she was definitely a hot topic of conversation.

The reality stars flocked to OK! Magazine’s Fall Fashion Week 2017 party last night in NYC. Among the stars in attendance: Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan and former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kathy Wakile.

Kathy also brought along her husband, Rich. We wonder how awkward things were since a lot of Kathy’s former Jersey co-stars were also at the NYFW event: Melissa Gorga, Danielle Staub, and newbie Margaret Josephs.

Also spotted at the reality star studded event: Bachelorette‘s Rachel Lindsay, Jersey Shore‘s Vinny Guadagnino, Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Cary Deuber, and even Real Housewives of Atlanta sidekick Marlo Hampton, rocking pink hair.

Check out the party pics below. Who has your vote for the best look of the night?

Stephanie-Hollman-Cary-Deuber-and-Brandi-Redmond-go-catfishing

This episode of The Real Housewives of Dallas was all about family. From LeeAnne Locken looking to form a new one with boyfriend Rich, to Brandi Redmond reaching out to her grandmother, and Keatin running away from his step mom D’Andra Simmons. This show has proven it’s more than poop jokes and charity events. Cary Deuber, Stephanie Hollman and Brandi pack for the big Memphis trip. Brandi plans to visit her grandfather who suffered from a recent stroke.

D’Andra enters her ornate house and catches up with her husband, Jeremy. They discuss his photo journalism lectures and appear to have a good partnership. Jeremy breaks the news to his wife that his son Keatin feels he doesn’t fit in and wants to move out less than two months of living there. D’Andra is upset by this. She thought he’d pick up on their ambition and shake the feeling of entitlement. D’Andra wants to hold her step son to the year he committed to, she gets fired up. The two may be newlyweds (don’t forget LeeAnne stood at the Simmons wedding!) but he knows how she is, asking her to be levelheaded.

Watch What Happens Live

If it wasn’t already clear that there are two distinct sides on Real Housewives of Dallas, the latest Watch What Happens Live episode made that very clear. Andy Cohen had Brandi Redmond, Stephanie Hollman, and Cary Deuber in the clubhouse, and as expected, LeeAnne Locken was the hot topic of conversation.

Then again, when is she not? If it wasn’t for LeeAnne and her friction with the cast during Season 1, there is no chance that this show would come back for a Season 2. No matter how much these women dislike LeeAnne (spoiler alert: it’s a lot) they should all be grateful that she is providing content for this show… and apparently for Watch What Happens Live as well.

Usually the mention of a Real Housewives vacation incites thoughts of grown women fighting over which room they get to sleep in at a mansion, explosive arguments at group dinners, or even a wild turn up. In all honesty, these trips seem more exhausting than relaxing, so it is no surprise that the Housewives seem to be a million times more relaxed when they take vacations in their real lives away from the cast.

Most of the Real Housewives escaped from real life to enjoy the long Labor Day Weekend with their friends and families.
