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.
It wouldn’t be a Real Housewives reunion if one of the cast members did not storm off of the stage. The shocking move has become weirdly standard at this point. So I’m really not too surprised that Cary Deuber took part in this Real Housewives rite of passage at the first Real Housewives of Dallas reunion.
Plus, it really does make sense since LeeAnne Locken went out of her way to spread rumors about Cary’s marriage to Mark Deuber. Any normal person would be upset about that and those normal emotions get magnified on the Real Housewives reunion stage.
Stephanie Hollman is one of the few people who can pull off being a genuinely nice person and an entertaining cast member on Real Housewives of Dallas. I didn’t know what to make of her at first, but I really am a fan now and I am #TeamStephanie when it comes to her issues with LeeAnne Locken.
To be honest, I’m usually with anyone who is against LeeAnne since LeeAnne is typically the one to start the drama and take her digs too far. Case in point: During the RHOD reunion episode, LeeAnne decided to insult Stephanie while she went in to hug Cary Deuber and apologize for spreading rumors about her being a homewrecker. That was beyond ridiculous and Stephanie is rightfully offended that she got dragged into that moment.
Obviously, Marie was the one who spread the story about LeeAnne Locken, and that is the only reason she is getting any screen time on this show. She is not even a Real Housewife and her desperation is just way too much for me to handle. I am definitely not a LeeAnne fan and even I can tell that Marie is an attention-seeking shit stirrer.
Needless to say, I was pretty shocked to watch the RHOD reunion episode and hear that Marie supposedly hired a social media team to take down LeeAnne and Tiffany Hendra. It’s absurd, to me, that she would invest so much thought and money into maintaining some sort of persona.
I am not the only one who paused the TV and did some Google searches for the name “Tiffany Hendra.” I know that Tiffany admitted to taking part in some mature films but insisted that they were not actually pornographic. Obviously, Tiffany had to address the topic again after the reunion episode aired.
When Real Housewives of Dallas first started, it really seemed like Brandi Redmond was going to be the shit stirrer of the group, but the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader ended up bringing a lot of depth to the show. And surprisingly, Brandi came into the reunion episode being on pretty good terms with everyone in the cast.
So instead of reflecting on personal drama, Brandi took to her Bravo blog to talk about what went down with everyone else at the reunion since she did not actually have any inter-cast issues herself. And (like the rest of us) she is still pretty confused by Tiffany Hendra‘s actions when it comes to her friendship with LeeAnne Locken.
I have no idea why LeeAnne Locken thinks anything she does on Real Housewives of Dallas is okay. She is a blatant shit stirrer and she uses her past as a convenient excuse to justify her ridiculous behavior. I also don’t get why she felt the need to bring up rumors about Cary Deuber’s marriage all the time when it was never relevant to any issue at hand. I don’t see a connection between someone saying LeeAnne pooped in a bag and LeeAnne spreading gossip about Cary being a homewrecker. None of it really adds up.
Even after watching the episodes, LeeAnne seemed kind of clueless at the reunion. It’s hard to tell if LeeAnne is genuinely sorry for spreading rumors about Cary and Mark Deuber having an affair before they got married, or if she is just trying to save face. LeeAnne (sort) of speaks out about the reunion, but she is still back pedaling and skirting the issue.
