I know folks are torn as to whether the Real Housewives of Dallas lives up to the rest of the franchise. I’m here to tell you that it does. The most pure and ridiculous friendship ever lived out on Bravo belongs to Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman. Cary Deuber’s look changes so often, she may as well be a chameleon. Kameron Wescott is the real life version of a nice(r) Regina George if Regina George was friends with Cher on Clueless. And LeeAnne Locken. The carnival. Enough said. To say I’m enjoying this season so far would be an understatement.
And speaking of Clueless, this past episode had me thinking of one iconic quote. “My plastic surgeon doesn’t want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose…” “Well, there goes your social life!” Ladies and gents, the RHOD girls were super stressed about fake testicles, and it caused all kinds of drama.
Brandi, purveyor of said fake balls, breaks down the absurdity in her Bravo blog. She begins with a show of appreciation to Kameron and a dig at LeeAnne, writing, “Thank you all for watching. I’m really in such a proud, professional mindset when it comes to Brandiland. I had a vision and went after it along with my partners Mandy & Megan. Truth be told, I was honored and uplifted by Kameron’s comments. She had her own opinion that I value when it comes to supporting and uplifting others and their dreams. So thank you, Kam. LeeAnne, I wish you nothing but the best on your dress. So now tell me what you really think. I’m on my fourth collection, trademarked, and my line is currently in stores. #successmuch”
From success much to stress much, Brandi addresses the great stressticles debate of Beaver Creek. Did Cary restrain her from gifting the rubber scrotum to Kameron? Heck no! Brandi is a big girl who makes her own decisions. However, after seeing the show, she may have overreacted. Brandi concedes, “Moving along, I did not see the backstory behind why Cary brought the stressticles up, and it now makes sense. She was showing Kam that she would have shut [it] down. So now, I’m over it. It’s silly, but it may make the others think, oh yea she is a bad influence. Boo…,” adding, “Stephanie sitting me down, knows me too well. I would normally not get upset over such petty BS and so I’m glad she had a come to Jesus with me. I needed to hear that. Love you, Stephanie, so thankful for your sisterhood and friendship.”
She continues, “The next day was the spa party, and I can’t wait to be pampered and see those models again. Stephanie did an over the top gorgeous custom spa day. First, I was shocked to hear LeeAnne say that I judge Kameron. Did she not say she was afraid of me being a bad influence?”
Discussing Stephanie’s budding friendship with LeeAnne, Brandi asserts, “Also, LeeAnne, Stephanie’s perspective of you was mine? Oh no honey, look in the mirror. You dressed up as two-faced, you screamed in her face that her charity world was gonna go down the toilet for hanging out with a little piece of trash (me), you lost it at our lake house, you had all your friends do dirty work for you to talk bad about us. Shall I continue? Her perspective was not mine. So quit pointing fingers. Also, do u see me trying to break up y’alls friendship? No!” Um, do I dare say Brandi is making a valid point?
Back to the
basics balls, Brandi concludes, “However, I felt like I needed to address the stressticles with Cary. I love Cary, and she is always so supportive of everything I do, but not this one. Lol, I probably over shared my opinion of the Kam and LeeAnne pact. I don’t regret it. I know I’d say it to their faces and plan to. Thank you again for tuning in. Much love to you all.”
So let’s get down to the real burning question that RHOD has me asking…where can I get my own set of stressticles??
TELL US – WAS BRANDI OVERREACTING TO THE STRESSTICLES DEBACLE?
