It’s been a hot second since the Real Housewives of Dallas has been on our screens. Much has happened in our time off. Most recently, D’Andra Simmons has been admitted to ICU due to Coronavirus. Then there’s hot mess express Brandi Redmond. If you thought we were through with the overt racism on this franchise after the loss of LeeAnne Locken, think again. Brandi’s recent remarks are reportedly included in the upcoming 5th season.
This season will also feature newest Housewife, Tiffany Moon. Tiffany is an accomplished anesthesiologist and an Associate Professor of Anesthesiology and Pain Management at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center! Can’t wait to see how she stacks up against a green powder power-house and the glitter dog-food-empress.
Real Housewives of Dallas will be back in January for Season 5. A majority of the upcoming season was shot in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, which means that fans can expect for the parties and vacations to be scaled back.
However, having a more low key party or vacation is hardly an actual problem, by any stretch of the imagination. Too many people have lost their lives and lost family members to coronavirus. Others have had lingering, possibly long-term effects, following their experiences with coronavirus as well. Unfortunately, Dallas Housewife D’Andra Simmons is currently battling covid-19.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills feels so far away, and yet like it happened just yesterday. This last season of RHOBH carried on the YEARS-long tradition of creating one storyline for the whole season, designed to humiliate ONE woman. Last year it was Lisa Vanderpump and puppy gate. The year before was Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave (which in hindsight, I don’t mind that one so much). The year before that was Erika Girardi and panty-gate. This year it was Denise Fu**ing Richards and an ALLEGED sexual encounter, with RHOBH’s self-proclaimed truth teller, Brandi Glanville.
Do you want to revisit any of those seasons? I don’t. Seasons that beat to death a single story are totally unenjoyable. Housewives works best, IMHO, when the show features a truly ensemble cast. Real Housewives of New York City, Atlanta, and Salt Lake City even seem to understand this implicitly. Plus, these series, along with New Jersey, Potomac, Dallas and yes, Orange County have women who are willing to show their lives. RHOBH doesn’t do either of these things and yet, it was the most-watched series in the franchise.
Bravo didn’t originally intend for us to have a Tamra Judge-free season of Real Housewives of Orange County. Andy Cohen confirmed that Tamra was offered a three-episode role to wrap up her story.
That’s far from the full-time role Tamra had for years. Truthfully, that’s actually very far off from a part-time role as a Friend of the Housewives. That’s basically a cameo appearance.
Last season on Real Housewives of Dallas, Brandi Redmond contemplated adopting another child. She and her husband Bryan Redmond already had three children, their daughter Brinkley and Brooklyn, and their son Bruin Redmond, who they adopted during a previous season.
Recently, Brandi confirmed that her family is growing. There’s another little Redmond on the way.
We are sending positive thoughts to Real Housewives of Dallas cast member Brandi Redmond and her family.
She has shared both grief and gratitude after a tragic car accident. Brand’s mother-in-law Jill Marie Redmond did not survive the accident. Brandi and Bryan Redmond’s daughter Brinkley Redmond was in the car as well. Brinkley survived the accident. It is unclear if she sustained an injuries at this time.
Technically speaking, Real Housewives of Dallas is an ensemble show. However, all roads led back to LeeAnne Locken for the first four seasons of the show. So, how is RHOD going to fare now that LeeAnne is gone?
Now that LeeAnne is done with the Real Housewife life, she’s spilling some tea on her former castmates. And, apparently, she’s actually friends with… wait for it, Kary Brittingham, of all people. Now that is a twist that I never saw coming, especially since LeeAnne left the show following the offensive comments she made about Kary’s Mexican heritage. How on earth did these two become friends?
Recently, a video that Brandi Redmond shared in 2017 resurfaced. In the video, she was making fun of Asians, squinting her eyes and changing the sound of her voice.
The Real Housewives of Dallas star faced backlash for the video, but she didn’t face any consequences in terms of her spot on the show. She tried to defend herself claiming that she was just trying to be humorous, which obviously didn’t go over well. Brandi even checked into some sort of wellness retreat in the wake of the scandal.
