Real Housewives Of Dallas

Two New Housewives Reportedly Added To Real Housewives of Dallas

The last season of Real Housewives of Dallas was, let’s face it, a mess. And a hot one at that. Not even a wedding could generate enough good karma to save the whole thing. Plus we had a Cary/Kary situation. OG Cary Deuber was demoted to a friend of and Kary Brittingham was added in her place. Unfortunately, Kary didn’t have the best first season, getting off to a rocky start with veteran LeeAnne Locken.

Speaking of LeeAnne and that rocky start. We all know LeeAnn allegedly got herself fired after spending the entire season with her xenophobia against Kary on full display. Let’s not rehash all the awful things she said because they really shouldn’t be repeated. Kary handled herself with grace but that wasn’t even enough to win fans over. They called her boring and sure, she didn’t have much of her own storyline. But was that editing or does it even matter? I like Kary and she can hold her own. And she’s definitely not boring on social media.

#WeSayThanks To Reality Stars Giving Back During Coronavirus

Reality Tea is proud to announce that we’re collaborating with our fellow Evolve Media LLC websites for #WeSayThanks. This is campaign to thank and raise money for essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

#WeSayThanks coincides with Police Week, Public Works Week, and National Medical Services Week. We have also created a limited-edition T-shirt, with the promise to donate $5 from each sale to charities that support our essential workers and their families during this difficult time.

#WeSayThanks

We understand that the pandemic has affected everyone in some way or another. Charity should be about contributing what you are comfortable with and able to do. It is completely understood that not all of our readers are in the market for a philanthropic t-shirt. That is completely OK! Whether or not you purchase a shirt, we would love it if you joined our initiative by telling us who you are thankful for in the comments section of this article or on Twitter with the hashtag #WeSayThanks. A simple “thanks” goes a long way.

We would also like to thank some reality TV stars who have given back during the coronavirus pandemic. And, of course, we want to thank everyone who has given their time and money during this time, especially those who are not in the public eye. We appreciate you!

Tuesday Morning Tea- April 21, 2020: The Stories You Need To See

We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the April 21 edition of Tuesday Morning Tea.

Cary Deuber Thinks Brandi Redmond Started Gay Rumor About Her Husband; Wouldn’t Return To Real Housewives Of Dallas Because Of The Current Cast

I’m not gonna lie, I’m still pretty shocked that Real Housewives of Dallas alums Cary Deuber and LeeAnne Locken are such good friends after the very rocky start to their relationship. Among other things, LeeAnne put Cary’s husband Mark Deuber on blast and claimed that he got his d*ck sucked at a gay bar. And better yet that she “knows the boys who did it.”

Yet, here they are on great terms. Somehow. Cary even showed up during RHOD Season 4 to co-host of LeeAnne’s many pre-wedding events. It says a lot that Cary was able to forgive LeeAnne after starting and spreading that rumor. But, maybe it’s not too crazy since Cary doesn’t actually think that LeeAnne is the origin of that drama.

Housewives Kary Brittingham And Claudia Jordan Get Into Heated Social Media Debate On Lack Of Diversity on Real Housewives Of Dallas

Claudia Jordan is gone from housewives but clearly not forgotten. The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member was only on for one season but made quite an impact when she famously went toe-to-toe with OG NeNe Leakes. But for some reason, Claudia just didn’t fit on the show. She made a quick exit before we even really got a chance to know her. I actually really liked her. Anyone who could show up on their first season and read NeNe has my adoration forever. Maybe she didn’t have the most interesting story line (ok, she didn’t really have one at all). Still, I thought she brought some much needed sanity to the show. I think every franchise needs one level headed housewife that seems grounded in actual reality.

Is Kary Brittingham that housewife on Real Housewives of Dallas? Honestly, I don’t know considering how new she is. She doesn’t seem to resonate with fans, despite gracefully handling now defunct cast mate LeeAnne Locken’s relentless attacks on her ethnicity.

Travis Hollman Stephanie Hollman RHOD Real Housewives Of Dallas

It is is a tough time all around the world thanks to the Coronavirus outbreak. Many people are sick. Health professionals are working hard around the clock. So many businesses have closed, leaving many people without a paycheck.

However, that’s not the case for the Hollman Lockers employees. Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman’s husband Travis Hollman has pledged to pay all of his employees their normal salaries even though many of them are confined to their homes in quarantine.

Andy Cohen Says Real Housewives Of Dallas Wouldn’t Have Lasted If It Wasn’t For LeeAnne Locken

By now, Real Housewives of Dallas fans know that LeeAnne Locken will not be on the show for Season 5. That really isn’t much of a surpise considering the way Season 4 ended. It was basically LeeAnne vs. everyone, including Andy Cohen, at the reunion. And for good reason too.

LeeAnne was under fire for making racially insensitive comments about Kary Brittingham, during multiple episodes. It just did not seem at all likely that LeeAnne could return to the show. Not in 2020, that’s for sure. Nevertheless, we can’t ignore that pretty much every (interesting) storyline was driven by LeeAnne. They really need to step things up when it comes to casting RHOD Season 5.

LeeAnne Locken & Cary Deuber Make Amends On RHOD

Aside from Bethenny Frankel, Lisa Vanderpump, and NeNe Leakes, it’s very tough to believe that anyone actually “walks away” from a Real Housewives show. It’s just such a wide-reaching platform. Who would give up that exposure? Who would give up that paycheck? Why would anyone give up those perks? Oh, that’s right: no one actually would.

Most of the time when a woman leaves Real Housewives, she thanks the fans and the network and promises that she has big ventures ahead. We all know that’s a crock of shit and is not true 99.99% of the time. It’s only accurate if you’re Bethenny or Lisa Vanderpump. This week, we found out LeeAnne Locken is “leaving” Real Housewives of Dallas after four seasons. We all saw this coming after the racially charged scandal that dominated the tail end of Season 4. In her announcement, LeeAnne shared her intent to focus on philanthropy, which is a great thing, of course. Still, it’s very unlikely that LeeAnne is the one who made the decision to exit the show. This is something RHOD alum Cary Deuber knows all too well.
