Real Housewives of Dallas: The Nanny and the Confessor

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.

Whoever decided to book Kelly Dodd and LeeAnne Locken for the same Watch What Happens Live episode deserves a raise. What a fire pairing. Andy Cohen barely had to do any hosting. These two were more than happy to open up.

Kelly and LeeAnne spilled tea, talked shit, and kept it real as they possibly could.

Even though the Real Housewives of Dallas Season 2 reunion hasn’t aired yet, it is very clear that there are two distinct sides: LeeAnne Locken, D’Andra Simmons, and Kameron Westcott vs. Brandi Redmond, Stephanie Hollman, and Cary Deuber. Sure there’s been a revolving door of friendships this season with LeeAnne and Brandi getting along here and there, but the long term loyalties are pretty obvious – minus Cary bouncing back and force between both camps.

The self-proclaimed “Mouth from the South” LeeAnne opened up about the last RHOD episode and the recently taped reunion.

D’Andra Simmons Would Not Be Married If Her Husband Talked To Her The Way Mark Talks To Cary Deuber; Kameron Westcott Insists That She Doesn’t Think She’s Better Than Everyone Else

To put it mildly, Kameron Westcott has not had the best reception from Real Housewives of Dallas fans. So it’s sadly not surprising that Andy Cohen asked “Does Kameron think she is better than everyone else?” during an audience poll on Watch What Happens Live. Hopefully watching this season back will allow Kameron to get it together if she returns next season, but she doesn’t seem to be fazed by the criticism.

Maybe the reunion will be a different story though. Joining Kameron on the show was fellow RHOD newbie D’Andra Simmons and they had a lot to say about Cary Deuber and Mark Deuber’s marriage and Brandi Redmond of course.

The Real Housewives of Dallas chugs along into another over the top episode. The Mexico trip has ended kind of abruptly and we’re back in Dallas. This episode had all the ingredients of a classic real housewives disaster. They’re deep into the season, the cast trip is behind them and loyalties are changing and a flesh-eating bacteria has entered the picture! The ladies are all back to their Dallas lives. Cary Deuber and Mark Deuber catch up and unpack. Cary is very low energy, sitting with her arms folded; telling her husband that she only had a good time with Kameron Westcott and D’Andra Simmons. She goes on to say that Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman didn’t have her back and hasn’t talked to them since. Cary carefully tells her husband that LeeAnne Locken said he goes to the bars and has guys hit on him. Mark keeps his cool but says that he doesn’t need people to ruin them and walks out.

Brandi (and her misbehaving daughters) go to check out the venue for the upcoming white party. Brandi explains that she has an annual themed Christmas party. We’re treated to pictures of her husband in a bathing suit and one in a onesie. An “Event Designer” is all excited about some 6ft light up marquee sign that says “Play”. (??) In her interview, Brandi introduces us to Win, her white reindeer. We’re told they both don’t believe in boundaries, so watch out Kameron. Back in the event space, Stephanie joins and Brandi says she’s still upset with Cary. They’re both weirded out by fighting with their ex-friend. Stephanie gives Cary credit for being there for her when she had no one and just doesn’t want to get in the middle. Shouldn’t she mediate between the two before it gets ugly?

In a pretty surprising turn of events, Real Housewives Of Dallas has turned into the gift that keeps on giving. The entire cast actually shows up to group functions. The story lines don’t drag on longer than they should and everyone has relationships that exist outside of the show. They even have the perfect balance of arguing and turning up.

Basically, the Texans are giving us everything that the Orange County Housewives forgot how to do. One person who is constantly delivering the entertainment is Brandi RedmondSome people find her to be hilarious and others are not on board with her brand of humor- cough cough Kameron WrstcottNevertheless, Brandi someone that always keeps things interesting.

D'Andra Simmons

Based on the last Real Housewives of New York season and the current Real Housewives of Dallas season, I feel like every Real Housewives cast needs to go on an annual Mexico trip. These episodes have the best mix of drama and fun times.

The episodes have also showed us a different side of D’Andra Simmons, who has had the tough task of being LeeAnne Locken’s best friend and joining the cast as friend of Kameron Westcott‘s –  who is far from a fan favorite.  I’m sure D’Andra had some vicarious stress since pretty much everyone else in the cast was arguing, but she managed to turn up and make some peace without overdoing it with the meddling.

Every person serves a role when it comes to reality TV. With that said, there’s no question that LeeAnne Locken is the person who drives every major story line on Real Housewives of Dallas.

Then there’s someone like Stephanie Hollman, who is there to lighten the mood and be the one who’s “just like us”…. with a way higher budget. Even though Stephanie and LeeAnne cannot stand each other, their differences make this show worth watching.
