Stephanie Hollman

Brandi

In all honesty, pretty much nothing happened on the first Real Housewives of Dallas season. Season 2 looks a lot more interesting (which isn’t saying much) and Brandi Redmond is a big part of that. Brandi is feuding with Stephanie Hollman, and she teased that there is even more drama on the horizon.

The expectations for Season 2 are low, but the hopes are high. Of course I’ll be tuning in no matter what because I watch every single show on Bravo, but it sounds like it might actually be worth it this time – at least according to Brandi.

Love her or hate her, if you watch Real Housewives of Dallas, you have LeeAnne Locken to thank for making season one interesting and giving Bravo a reason to renew the show for its second season. If it wasn’t for LeeAnne, RHOD would have been (even more of) a total snooze fest last year.

Still, LeeAnne surprisingly took a backseat during the season two premiere thanks to the rift between Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman. LeeAnne didn’t fade into the background though. She inserted herself in the feud to protect her new BFF Brandi.

Stephanie Hollman Is Over LeeAnne Locken

It was shocking to see that Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond were not on speaking terms when Real Housewives of Dallas returned for Season 2. These two were legitimately best friends outside of the show and were attached at the hip, so to see them not talking at all and not even arguing with each other was quite the surprise.

Brandi was upset over one of Stephanie‘s blogs, in which she talked about her marriage. Brandi refused to speak with Stephanie for months even though they both admit that Stephanie reached out to her constantly.

Most of the viewers would have ever predicted the rift between Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond– well that is until previews for Season 2 of Real Housewives of Dallas were released. Nevertheless, based solely on Season 1, the feud is pretty shocking since they were true BFF’s.

Brandi was upset after reading one Stephanie’s Bravo blog posts that she felt slammed her marriage and refused to talk to Stephanie for months… until they started filming Season 2, of course. There’s no way to get out of that contractually obligated interaction, especially since this still a new show and all of these cast members are replaceable. They saw each other for the first time in a while during the Season 2 premiere episode and Brandi refused to open her mouth when Stephanie went up to her at Mark Deuber’s birthday party. Even though hey did not speak during the episode, they both have a lot to say about everything that went down now that it has aired.

To be honest, I wasn’t feeling Real Housewives of Dallas when it first debuted. There weren’t any strong story lines and the one-liners were pretty sub-par. Nevertheless, it did pick up and I did get invested in RHOD just like I have with every single Real Housewives show that has come before it- so obviously that’s not super surprising.

Even so, I wasn’t exactly pumped for Season 2, but true to form, I watched anyway. Was I blown away or immediately drawn in? No. I paused my TV to wash my face and brush my teeth mid-episode. Still, it does seem like the show is moving in the right direction when it comes to casting. Thankfully they didn’t add random people to the show and D’Andra Simmons actually has a longstanding history with most of the cast members. This makes so much sense and it gives me hope for Season 2.

We return to The Real Housewives of Dallas for what is rumored to be an amazing season. Unlike last, this is the first season fully intended to be part of the “Real Housewives” franchise. The tone has already changed from a ‘poop centric, charity loving, cartoon,’ to a southern fried drama with a side of pink dog food; ridiculous!

Cary Deuber is awarded with the first scene, hosting a doggy play-date for her and Stephanie Hollman. Cary reveals she considers Steph one of her best friends now. These women pair up quickly. We meet Biscuit, the newest Hollman dog. Much like her husband Travis Hollman, Biscuit enjoys running around the house with her panties in his mouth.

The Real Housewives of Dallas season 2 kicks off tonight! And it sounds like friendships are fractured, skeletons are tumbling out of closets and more! We can’t wait!

According to Bravo: “The housewives take sides as Brandi and Stephanie reveal that a feud has ended their friendship. And who of all people has become Brandi’s friend and confidante, but LeeAnne Locken. An old police report about LeeAnne’s past resurfaces. And everything comes to a head at Cary’s birthday party for Mark, where Brandi and Stephanie come face to face as two new housewives join.”
