It’s obvious that Kameron Westcott is provoking Brandi Redmond for the sake of a story line on Real Housewives of Dallas. Was it rude of Brandi to give gifts and invites for a girls trip in front of Kameron without including her? Absolutely. Did it make sense for Brandi to invite Kameron to visit her estranged grandmother in Memphis? No, not at all. Brandi excluding Kameron from the trip made a lot of sense, but she did not have the best social tact in that situation.
pretentiously asking her children to speak Spanish, Kameron has made it clear that she prides herself on her etiquette. That’s why it was surprising when she was so rude to Brandi when she asked to pull her aside to apologize and make up for the pink gift bag debacle. Then again, this is a reality show and it made for a more interesting story line. Did it help Kameron gain any fans? Probably not too many, but it just wasn’t the best look for someone who continually talks about manners.
Brandi discussed that awkward tea party from the last episode in her Bravo blog. Brandi spoke for most of the viewers when she admitted, “I’m not gonna lie, hearing that I don’t fit in and the BS about not living in Dallas is exhausting.” No one cares about zip codes and at this point most of the Real Housewives viewers are very much aware that the women on these shows live on the same block.
Brandi continued, “If I don’t have anything in common with Kameron Westcott, it’s because she’s judging me. I’m pretty sure I love the color pink, we both have a little girl the same age, and we both love Mexican food. I think there might be something there, but oh well.” Kameron has zero interest in befriending Brandi no matter how much they may have in common or how much balance they could gain from their differences.
And then there’s the second pink gift bag incident of the season. Brandi confessed, “I thought me giving a gift to Kameron was going to be a funny but nice gesture to move past my etiquette foul.” That did not go over well- at all. Brandi recalled, “I did not want to have the conversation in front of everyone, but D’Andra Simmons was insisting on everyone being open and honest in front of the group. I was honestly over the entire issue and wanted to move on.”
She explained, “I called Kameron a bitch because I felt that she was being one by not listening and trying to make it more about herself when the reasoning for the gift had nothing to do with her in the first place. I walked out because I was over the conversation, and I didn’t want to be at the Honest Tea to begin with. It’s petty, it’s ridiculous, and it’s not for me.” The whole “Honest Tea” concept and then the poor acting about Kameron “randomly” asking about a “favorite vacation spot” which prompted Cary Deuber to “suggest” the group go to Mexico f
or a Bravo-funded trip did not seem at all natural.
Of course Kameron took issue with Brandi’s attire. Nevertheless, Brandi admitted, “Was I shocked that my attire was not up to their standards? No, not shocked at all. I’ll admit, I wasn’t raised in the debutante world and I guess I should have Googled ‘tea attire’ before attending, but I just thought I was supposed to look like a whore in church.” I don’t know about that “whore in church” part, but who actually cares about someone’s outfit during a tea party in someone’s living room?
Brandi wasn’t the only one feeling the heat during the Honest Tea. Still, she admitted that she was the one who got things going in another argument that went down within the group. Brandi confessed, “LeeAnne Locken and Cary Deuber’s clash was clearly from my doing, and I had no idea it would end up being a moment of WOW! LeeAnne knows better, I know she does, but it had been such a long night of drinking and honesty that I think her honesty got the best of her.”
Even so, Brandi said, “LeeAnne crying makes me sad for her. Especially that D’Andra is not being supportive, so I took it upon myself to let her know that I do care and love her. She is such a wounded soul, and we probably should have had her therapist sit in for her questions so we could all better understand her. I felt that the room was cold and not supportive of her, so I was proud of myself for being there for her.” Plus Brandi and LeeAnne hugging while Cary complained about her arm getting crushed was the best moment of the episode.
Brandi concluded, “All in all, I think the Honest Tea was a joke. I could have addressed all of my issues directly with LeeAnne. Who knew that D’Andra was such a nosey cold bitch! But hey, we are going to Mexico, and you know nobody likes a good time better than me!”
