Y’all this Dallas trip is beyond bonkers. If these ladies despise one another so much, why are they vacationing together? I have to say D’Andra Simmons is a breath of fresh air on this season of Real Housewives of Dallas, and more power to someone who can tame LeeAnne Locken’sspecial brand of cray. Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond are definitely better together (that bubble bath!), and Kameron Westcott’s voice is about to throw me over the edge. Without a doubt, the Dallas franchise has grown on me, and I think I could watch it year-round. That said, there seems to be some selective memory (or completely altered memory) when it comes to these girls and their plastic surgeons (“he’s an OBGYN”).
Addressing the drama that went down at dinner in Mexico on this week’s episode, Cary Deuber insists she never, ever, ever implied that Brandi’s mommy makeover doctor had someone die on his operating table. Brandi seems insistent that it was said, and it was sad to see the close friends go head to head. Can we just get the girls some more tequila please?
We return to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, where the ladies are on their first real cast trip. Doesn’t it seem like all the franchises end up in Mexico at one point or another? Now it’s time for The Real Housewives of Dallas. Kameron Westcott has rules for a quality vacation, Cary Deuber gets called out for being a know it all and LeeAnne Locken is ready to boil over. What could possibly go wrong?
Everyone’s getting in their swimsuits to go fight lay out by the beach. D’Andra Simmons‘ suit is new, don’t tell Mama Dee. Brandi Redmondand Stephanie Hollman are giggling like schoolgirls over their secret surprise, an XL dildo deemed “sexual chocolate”. Brandi can barely contain herself as she slips it inside D’Andra’s bag. Apparently, she’s the ‘conservative’ one on the trip… There’s lots of tequila, consumption of worms and grasshoppers. Kameron is learning a lot while watching D’Andra chowing away on some crispy worms. Grabbing her bag, D’Andra spots the dildo right away and pulls it out. Cary flees. Is it too much? Not according to her who claims to have nonstop sex.
LeeAnne Locken’s hands work very well, she’ll have us all know. But The Real Housewives Of Dallas star doesn’t plan on using them to kill Cary Deuber, and frankly, she doesn’t even remember making threats to do so! Before surgery, LeeAnne told Brandi Redmond that Cary needed to watch out, insinuating that she’d use her hands as weapons if need be. After watching this scene play back last week, LeeAnne says she doesn’t even recall this conversation, blaming her trash talk on the meds she was doped up on pre-surgery.
LeeAnne also thinks Brandibaited her into smack-talking about Cary, beginning with the ride to surgery. She explains how Brandi revved her up before the procedure: “During the entire drive to surgery, I got to hear all the horrible things Cary Deuber was saying about my surgeon. And, to be clear, Cary doesn’t even know my surgeon! Brandi also reminded me of how stressed out she was before her own mommy make-over. Cary had told her that Brandi’s own surgeon had, ‘KILLED SOMEONE ON HIS TABLE’. I just can’t even imagine how apprehensive Brandi must have felt…I don’t understand this need to insult a person’s surgeon RIGHT BEFORE SURGERY!”
The divide gets a little bit bigger this week on The Real Housewives of Dallas. There’s some crazy talk, but also a moment that looked to be out of Mean Girls: The Adult Years. One house husband won’t miss an opportunity to be on camera, and everyone can’t stop talking about LeeAnne Locken’s plastic surgeondoctorOBYGN cosmetic surgeon. Here we go –
Cary Deuber is alarmed because she’s only having sex with Mark once a day. They’re remodeling the practice and it’s all being put on Cary’s shoulders. She asks if it is okay if she runs to yoga and Mark suggests she keeps working. She wants to pick up her daughter after yoga and he ultimately allows her to “bail” on him again but not without making comments – so many comments. Cary is tired of battling Mark when it comes to giving attention to her daughter. This man needs to be brought down a peg or two, or three or four.
The status of LeeAnne Locken and Brandi Redmond’s friendship is so confusing. Are they friends? Enemies? Frienemies? A work in progress? It’s just tough to decipher. One second they’re hugging it out and the next they are shading each other on social media. Nevertheless, it was still surprising to see them hugging it out during that “Honest Tea” gathering during the last episode of Real Housewives of Dallas.
Of course that was filmed months ago and their relationship has probably had a ton of ups and downs since then. So it’s pretty interesting to see what LeeAnne has to say now that she’s watched the episode.
It’s obvious that Kameron Westcottis provoking Brandi Redmond for the sake of a story line on Real Housewives of Dallas. Was it rude of Brandi to give gifts and invites for a girls trip in front of Kameron without including her? Absolutely. Did it make sense for Brandi to invite Kameron to visit her estranged grandmother in Memphis? No, not at all. Brandi excluding Kameron from the trip made a lot of sense, but she did not have the best social tact in that situation.
In between pretentiously asking her children to speak Spanish, Kameron has made it clear that she prides herself on her etiquette. That’s why it was surprising when she was so rude to Brandi when she asked to pull her aside to apologize and make up for the pink gift bag debacle. Then again, this is a reality show and it made for a more interesting story line. Did it help Kameron gain any fans? Probably not too many, but it just wasn’t the best look for someone who continually talks about manners.
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 YorkCity 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 Westcottcome 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.
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.
