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, RealHousewives Of Dallashas 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 Redmond. Some people find her to be hilarious and others are not on board with her brand of humor- cough cough Kameron Wrstcott. Nevertheless, Brandi someone that always keeps things interesting.
Based on the last Real Housewives of New York season and the current Real Housewives of Dallasseason, 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.
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.
I don’t blame anyone for sleeping on Real Housewives of Dallas after Season 1, but Season 2 is definitely coming through. It’s way better than anyone ever expected. And of course LeeAnne Locken is at the center of it all. Everyone is either talking about LeeAnne or looking for an excuse to bring her up. It all comes back to LeeAnne and all of those women- especially the ones she doesn’t get along with- should thank her for giving everyone story lines.
Not only does LeeAnne deliver during the episodes, but she also has a lot to say after they air.
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?
