I was a little iffy on it at first, but I ended up enjoying the Real Housewives of Dallas. As a longtime viewer of the Real Housewives franchise, I do think it could use some tweaking, but I’m definitely on board for a second season and it seems like my wish is about to come true.
While there hasn’t been any official announcement about the future of the Real Housewives of Dallas, Stephanie Hollman seriously hinted at it on social media. Not only that, but she is also spending time with a Real Housewives of New York cast member. How random.
The Real Housewives franchise wasn’t a “thing” yet, and I felt like I was getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse into a private Orange County community. Another aspect that I miss about the way RHOC used to be is original Housewife Jeana Keough. She was the original shit stirrer and I love her for it. I was such a fan of her kids and their drama. Sure, Jeana appears on the show from time to time, but that’s just not the same. Now Jeana is speaking out about her time on RHOC and why she left the show.
Being a cast member on any Real Housewives shows provides a lot of opportunities to make money. At this point, I feel like the ladies are coming up with catch phrases and one liners solely based on the potential to sell their own words on a message t shirt.
During the first season of Real Housewives of Dallas, Brandi Redmond was an avid wine drinker and she loved talking about it. She constantly referred to it as “Jesus juice.” Personally, the first time I heard the term “Jesus juice,” was during the Michael Jackson trial and that is where my thoughts went the first time I heard Brandi utter the words on RHOD.
Lisa did mention on that show that her daughters wanted to get into modeling and that she wanted them to wait until they were a little older. So all of the fans knew this was coming eventually. Lisa, Delilah, and her modeling agency are ecstatic about the signing – obviously.
I really do like Jules Wainstein, but I just don’t know if this whole reality TV thing is for her. She doesn’t contribute much to the story lines and she doesn’t have great commentary about the women who actually do.
I feel like there should be some sort of Real Kids spin off show within the Real Housewives franchise, because it seems like a lot of them have inherited a penchant from drama from their reality TV mothers and there others who have taken things even further with legal troubles and other controversies.
The Real Housewives kids have caused a lot of trouble over the years…from DUIs to public hair pulling to domestic violence accusations. There have been plenty of headlines about these reality star kids – thanks to their mothers’ fame – throughout the years.
Dolores Catania has been friends with the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast for many years, so I’m pretty surprised that she was not a part of the show sooner. It makes perfect sense for her to be a cast member since she actually knows everyone very well and it’s very organic for her to be around.
Other than the fact that Dolores knew all of the cast members before joining the show, we don’t know too much about Dolores yet. Thankfully she has opened up about her decision to join the show and her girl Teresa Giudice’s post-prison life.
It was hard to figure out how I felt about Real Housewives of Dallas. At first, I thought the entire cast was annoying. Then they really started to grow on me, but I quickly grew tired of the constant poop-related story lines, LeeAnne Locken talking about the “charity world”, and Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman using the phrase “Jesus juice” to describe wine. These women were doing the most and it wasn’t always the best.
As the season went on, I became more invested (as I always do), so I feel like there is some potential here, but the show is far from perfect. With so many super successful Real Housewives shows, it makes me wonder if the Dallas series will be renewed for a second season.
