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.

Since Season 2 of Real Housewives of Dallas was filmed months ago, there is a lot of back story missing when it comes to the social media activity between the cast members. Clearly there is a lot of tension there, but the viewers are just behind because the conflicts haven’t aired on TV yet.

If you follow D’Andra Simmons or Brandi Redmond on Twitter, it is very clear that they are not best friends, but as far as the show goes, there’s nothing to indicate why… yet.

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.

At this point the Real Housewives of Dallas cast is split into two distinct sides. Last year all of the ladies hated on LeeAnne Locken. Now that D’Andra Simmons and Kameron Westcott joined the cast they are on the same side of schism as LeeAnne with Cary Deuber, Brandi Redmond, and Stephanie Hollman on the other.

Even though D’Andra joined the cast as a friend of LeeAnne’s she also has no problem telling LeeAnne the truth, even if it’s not what she wants to hear. She also has no issue sharing her opinions about the rest of the cast, especially Brandi.

The focus of Season 2 of Real Housewives of Dallas has been the feud between besties Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman. They patched things up during the last episode though so now that the only main story line has wrapped up, Brandi has moved on to calling out the other cast members for their behavior.

So far, Brandi has been leaning on LeeAnne Locken for support, but now that she is back in action with Stephanie, that is bound to change- especially after LeeAnne dressed as “Two Face” for Halloween in an ode to Stephanie. Brandi has a lot to say about LeeAnne’s costume and the two new girls in the cast: D’Andra Simmons and Kameron Westcott.

Stephanie Hollman sits down with Brandi Redmond

It had to be tough for Stephanie Hollman to watch the Real Housewives of Dallas episodes where she and bestie Brandi Redmond were not on good terms. It also couldn’t have been easy for Stephanie to see enemy LeeAnne Locken filling in as Brandi’s confidant while they were feuding.

Ironically enough, Stephanie actually turned to Brandi to help her get through the episodes where they were at odds and they seem to be stronger friends for it. As for Stephanie and LeeAnne, they still can’t stand each other and nothing has changed between the two of them.

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.
