On this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Dallas, D’Andra Simmons was in a vulnerable state after leaving her mom’s company and sharing her fears of going broke and losing friends. She reflected on that in her newest blog and had some words of thanks for Cary Deuber, but some not-so-thankful things to say about LeeAnne Locken‘s lack of support.
D’Andra explains how hard it was to leave the security of her mom’s company after 14 years and start over from nothing. “If I had prepared for this exit, I would have not had a problem at all, but I didn’t see it coming…and when I did, I didn’t see it coming like this… ground zero.”
There’s no doubt about it: LeeAnne Locken and D’Andra Simmons will be on opposite couches during the Real Housewives of Dallas Season 3 reunion. D’Andra joined the show last season as LeeAnne’s best friend, and it took just one season for their friendship to fall apart.
Now D’Andra getting closer with LeeAnne’s longtime enemy Brandi Redmond and while LeeAnne is finally developing friendships with her previous foes Stephanie Hollman and Cary Deuber. A lot really can change in between seasons. Maybe these ladies should just film the show all year long? It seems like the dynamics have shifted so much in between Season 2 and Season 3.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Dallas, the ladies smashed each other, bashed each other, and then walked on broken glass with each other’s feelings.
I don’t know what kind of therapist LeeAnne Locken is seeing, but apparently, anything to avoid actual therapy. She’s gone from massaging her amygdala and zapping it with zen, to slamming a sledgehammer into a mirror while fake crying about how she will not let anger destroy very real friendships with very fake friends.
The only misconception that got smashed real good though t’was the idea that LeeAnne is truly friends with D’Andra Simmons. Lord – these two are more wrecked than a dressing room after a debutante ball!
She did pop up toward the end to catch up with Brandi Redmond about everything that went down in her absence, which didn’t seem like much, but the wheels were in motion for a major switch up in cast dynamics. D’Andra Simmons joined the show as LeeAnne Locken’s best friend. To put it mildly, LeeAnne and Brandi have had an up and down relationship over the years, so there was pretty much no chance D’Andra and Brandi would hit it off right away. They didn’t even start out this season on good terms- at all- after D’Andra (allegedly) alluded to Brandi using Adderall in a podcast interview. Now, these two are turning up and laughing at the rodeo- much to LeeAnne’s annoyance since her own relationship with D’Andra is hanging on by a thread.
We all know it’s coming. The end of D’Andra Simmons and LeeAnne Locken’s friendship has been teased during every Real Housewives of Dallas episode this season, on social media, and in interviews. We haven’t seen a major fight- yet- but the tension is building.
LeeAnne is not happy that D’Andra is getting along with her rival Brandi Redmond. LeeAnne is also not here for D’Andra questioning whether or not LeeAnne’s fiance Rich Emberlin actually wants to marry her or if he’s just buying time with their engagement. During the last episode, LeeAnne, D’Andra, Brandi, and Kameron Westcott enjoyed a day at the rodeo to celebrate D’Andra’s birthday and the divide was apparent. D’Andra and Brandi were really hitting it off while Kameron and LeeAnne just wanted to keep D’Andra “classy” and away from Brandi.
Real Housewives of Dallas definitely nailed the casting for Season 2. With the casting just right and the relationships solidified last year, Season 3 is off to a fantastic start. Unfortunately, Real Housewives of Dallas has been relegated to redheaded stepchild status within the Real Housewives franchise, but this show is actually so good and worth the watch. Just maybe skip the first season.
We have more sightings than usual this week with all of the reality stars descending on New York City for Fashion Week parties and events. Last night photographers snapped Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer arriving to the Playboy Club New York Grand Opening, along with her former co-star, Kelly Bensimon.
