Season 2 of Real Housewives of Dallas was a million times better than anyone expected. After a first season that was seriously lacking, the Texas ladies came out strong for round two. Many Real Housewives fans feel like they outdid the Orange County Housewives whose show aired on the same night this past season. At this point, Dallas should air as the lead-in show for Orange County, which had a particularly dismal and uneventful season.
With that said, the Dallas cast members deserve a vacation after all of that drama and social media feuding. They’ve definitely earned it. Stephanie Hollman and her husband Travis Hollman headed to Cartagena, Colombia, to ring in the new year. Brandi Redmond, Bryan Redmond, and their two daughters went to Mexico for their holiday vacation. Kameron Westcott, her husband Court Westcott, and their two kids enjoyed Vail, Colorado, with other family members.
Your favorite Reality TV stars celebrated 2018 in style and documented their good times on social media, of course. They shared photos with their significant others, children, and friends on New Year’s Eve.
The most shocking post by far was from Vanderpump Rulesstar Lala Kent who finally posted a photo with her longtime boyfriend Randall Emmett, after over a year of speculation about their relationship. Then again, the news became officially official when that video leaked of them making out at a party, his divorce is actually finalized, and there’s really no reason to keep the romance under wraps at this point. It was just pretty surprising considering how private the two have been in the past.
It’s a family-filled time of year for all of your favorite reality stars who have been posting a lot of photos in between Christmas and the New Year. It seems like everyone went on a family vacation this week… just in time to share some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Obviously RHOCwas supposed to be the lead-in show for Dallas since it is the original show in the franchise, but it just didn’t deliver the same level of drama that the Texas ladies blessed us with. Pretty much nothing happened all season and most of the women refused to film together. This served as cautionary tale for RHOD star LeeAnne Locken who has carried this show on her back for the past two seasons.
The first episode from the Real Housewives of DallasSeason 2 reunion has been a LeeAnne Locken bashing session. In reality, everyone on the opposite couch should be grateful for LeeAnne’s antics blessing them with a story line, but no one seems to get that. Thankfully D’Andra Simmons has LeeAnne’s back and seems to be the most reasonable person in the cast.
D’Andra is the only person who can check LeeAnne and defend her just as well- and LeeAnne really needed the latter after that brutal first part of the reunion.
However, after surviving her first season and temporarily losing a close friendship with Brandi, Stephanie is trying to stay sane in the Bravo Universe.
“It’s really hard to be vulnerable on something that’s meaningful,” Stephanie says of her sit-down with Brandi. “Like the first few weeks of filming, I felt like I was gonna have a nervous breakdown because […] it was important and it was an emotional thing. I was so worried that I was gonna screw everything up by putting it out there with her because you know with cameras on you everything is so heightened, so it was scary.”
One of Stephanie Hollman’s major story lines during the first Real Housewives of Dallas season was the dynamic of her marriage with Travis Hollman. The viewers really had a field day when he presented her with a list of chores. So of course, they’re most likely going to lay into them when Travis put a bid (and got) a house with a swimming pool in the living room and it came across like Stephanie was in the dark on the purchase.
Other than that, Stephanie‘s major story line (i.e. the only thing happening so far this season) is her fall out with best friend Brandi Redmond, which of course now involves most of the other cast members.
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.
