When you think about it, Bravo really changed the face of reality television. Sure, Bravo didn’t invent the genre, but over the years, the network has taken risks to start a wide variety of reality themed shows–from real estate to yachting and more. Many of these shows have been very successful and have been game changers in the reality television world.
Of course, the franchise Bravo is probably best known for is the Real Housewives. Who knew in 2006 that the franchise would still be going strong in 2019. From the original Real Housewives of Orange County, the show has landed in cities from New York to Dallas to Beverly Hills. One of the most successful spin-offs has been the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Recently, Peter Thomas, who used to be a regular on the show when married to Cynthia Bailey, shared his thoughts about how the men on the Housewives shows are portrayed.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Dallas LeeAnne Locken tied the knot to Rich Emberlin and treated her wedding ceremony like the sideshow act at a carnival. She then treated her wedding guests like they needed to pay for their own corndogs.
LeeAnne also insulted her own mother from the altar, because what better opportunity to say your piece to your mother when she can’t interrupt than during your own wedding vows?!
LeeAnne’s mother, Margaret, did in fact make it to the wedding. Right on time, in fact, and wearing a gold sequined dress. LeeAnne then proceeded to spend the entire ceremony and reception ignoring her. Margaret even had to beg for a photograph with her own daughter!
Last week’s Real Housewives Of Dallas ended on a cliffhanger with LeeAnne Locken crying in her wedding gown over her mother. I mean what’s a LeeAnne Locken event without drama about how her mother abaaaaaaandoned her?!
At least it wasn’t Rich Emberlin who left LeeAnne stranded at the altar although wouldn’t that have been the most exciting drama to ever grace a Real Housewives episode anywhere?! More exciting even than incarceration and secret weddings.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Dallas was all about family dramas. Isn’t it always? I mean, about the only thing that happens on this show anymore is LeeAnne Locken complaining about her mother. D’Andra Simmons complaining about her mother. And Brandi Redmond complaining about being a mother. Oh, ha – something different did happen last night: LeeAnne almost got married.
It’s one week before LeeAnne’s big day and she finally unveils the free wedding dress she conned out of a couture designer. Kameron Westcott and Stephanie Hollman attend the final fitting, becuase why NOT have another momentous event/part to celebrate LeeAnne’s slow crawl to Mrs?
When the mid-season trailer for The Real Housewives of Dallas dropped last week, viewers and Housewives alike were shocked to see LeeAnne Locken spew seemingly racist remarks at cast mate Kary Brittingham regarding her Mexican heritage.
While the drama surrounding the racially-charged insults appears to dominate the back half of Season 4, D’Andra Simmons is speaking out in a new interview about her take on the OG’s behavior and poor choice of words.
D’Andra Simmons‘ friendship with LeeAnne Locken has been at a stalemate so far this season on The Real Housewives of Dallas. While the duo’s long, slow spiral over accusations of cheating (D’Andra), alcoholism (LeeAnne) and financial woes (also LeeAnne) fueled the primary drama of Season 3, thus far the feuding former besties have spent this year tiptoeing cautiously around one another, despite a sit-down early in the season where they both committed to moving forward.
However, the friendship fallout once again took center stage in the Oct. 16 episode when a dust-up with Kary Brittingham over Leanne not inviting D’Andra to her bachelorette party led to the RHOD OG angrily calling her ex-BFF a “fat cow.” In a recent interview, D’Andra opened up about her reaction to the name-calling and revealed whether she was ready to accept an apology from her former bestie.
The drama is heating up on Real Housewives of Dallas Season 4. And, yes, it all comes back to LeeAnne Locken. But at least this time it’s not all about the wedding. She is still feuding with both D’Andra Simmons and Kary Brittingham. Even Kameron Westcott’s loyalty wavers as she gets close to Kary, much to LeeAnne’s chagrin.
Oh, and there are some racism accusations… Yeah, who saw that one coming? Not me.
Real Housewives Of Dallas continues to argue about etiquette that clearly doesn’t exist. Mainly because the person appointed judge and jury of how to behave and why has an obvious blind-eye towards one of the main perpetrators. I’m looking at YOU, Kameron Westcott.
Why are dinosaurs so closely linked to Real Housewives Of Dallas this season? Is this foreshadowing an extinction of friendships, social hierarchies, and trust funds?!
Maybe the first bad omen was the death of one, inappropriately named, bunny. Leave it to Brandi Redmond to throw a funeral for a deceased bunny she has been storing (wrapped in towels and tucked into a [hopefully clean] litter box), in her chest freezer. FOR SIX MONTHS. I think this beat Sonja Morgan, hoarder queeneth extraordinaire’s record. Brandi’s been trying to decide if she wants to bury Bun-Bun or taxidermy him. (You know LeeAnne Locken plans to have a taxidermied bust made of her 30-year-old face with changing weave capabilities once she passes).
