On last night’s Real Housewives Of Dallas D’Andra Simmons celebrated her 50th birthday by asking all her friends to make fun of her on national TV. Then she got a big box of donuts for a present. To each their own, I suppose!
Here in Dallas we don’t just do squats. We electrocute our gluteus muscles with electrodes attached to every part of our bodies while we “sim-u-late” a 1987 Curves workout. Well, this is what Stephanie Hollman and Kameron Westcott are doing instead of hitting the gym and getting CoolSculpting. It’s called “90/20.” It goes through the motions of a 90 minute exercise while you wear some biomedical lab catsuit which is supposed to deeply sculpt all your muscles in 2o minutes.
Doing this gives Stephanie more time to eat corn nuts or pickles off Travis‘ chest. Or you know, whatever. It’s also been a great opportunity for Steph and Kam to bond away from the group and all the drama of D’Andra and LeeAnne Locken.
Looks like LeeAnne Locken‘s road to wedded bliss is going to be rocky this season on The Real Housewives of Dallas.
The lead-up to the RHOD OG’s big day provides much of her personal storyline for Season 4. However, her bestie Kameron Westcott recently revealed that none of the other full-time ‘Wives showed up for the bridal shower she threw for LeeAnne.
It’s a new, lighter season of Real Housewives Of Dallas – at least hair follicle-wise! Oh, haha – who am I kidding these ladies still hate each other! Well, LeeAnne Locken and D’Andra Simmons do anyway.
Get ready for another season of LeeAnne and D’Andra battling for title of Queen Bee. LeeAnne even references her pageant past in her tagline, and of course she’s wearing a crown for her wedding. Marrying Rich Emberlin is her crowning achievement after all – right after being the self-proclaimed Philanthropy Hub of Dallas. Did I mention that I love this show?
LeeAnne blames D’Andra for their reconciliation stalling. After all, D’Andra never reached out after the reunion, despite promising that she would after apologizing for saying Rich cheated. Thankfully we did not have to hear a long tearful spiel about LeeAnne’s abandonment issues and her amygdala being hyper-sensitive to false promises, which further degrade her fragile carnie heart, which is all LeeAnne’s mother’s fault for letting the tilt-a-whirl operator babysit her – or some crazy shit that causes one to poop in a bag after ripping your belt off in the name of Jesus. LeeAnne’s trust issues make her see relationships like cotton candy: they look so beautiful and full, but evaporate as soon as she gets too close with her hot air.
Is anyone else as happy as I am to see Real Housewives Of Dallas return for a 4th season?
RHOD may not pull in the most ratings, but it’s a sleeper success. It’s chock-full of a dynamic and dramatic cast predicated on true friendships. This season Cary Deuber was demoted to the friend zone while newbie Kary Brittingham joined the cast as a full-time Housewife.
Real Housewives of Dallas fans witnessed the demise of D’Andra Simmons and LeeAnne Locken’s friendship during Season 3. There was a lot of tension between the long-time besties, which was spurred on by D’Andra’s mention that LeeAnne’s then fiancé (now-husband) Rich Emberlin was cheating on her.
D’Andra insisted that she was asking out of concern, but was that really the case? Or was she just trying to push that storyline along? Obviously, the two of them have very different views on how things went down last season (and so do the viewers). However, it seems like history will repeat itself during Season 4. Unfortunately.
The Real Housewives of Dallas is one of Bravo’s hidden gems. The show doesn’t receive the notoriety or attention that some of the other Housewife shows do, but that doesn’t diminish the fact that this show is the real deal. I’ve said it before–if you are not watching, you should, as the show is reminiscent of the other Housewife shows in their earlier years.
RHOD is headed into Season 4, believe it or not. Besides cast announcements and the season trailer, the one thing we all wait for at the start of the new season is the taglines being announced. Fortunately for us, the wait is over!
Can you believe that it is only a little over a week until the premiere of the Real Housewives of Dallas? If you are not watching this show, you should be. While some of the other Real Housewives shows have struggled with storylines and casting, RHOD has built up steam in its first three seasons.
One of the main storylines last season was the collapse of the friendship of LeeAnne Locken and longtime bestie D’Andra Simmons. D’Andra alleged that LeeAnne’s fiancé Rich Emberlin was cheating on her and LeeAnne alleged that D’Andra was having money problems. And that she maybe drank a bit too much sometimes. Unlike some Housewife drama that seems made up for the cameras, the fallout between LeeAnne and D’Andra seemed painful and personal. So, where do things stand between them today?
At the end of the last season of the Real Housewives of Dallas, we were left with many questions. Would LeeAnne Locken and long-time boyfriend-fiancee Rich Emberlin finally make it to the altar? Did Kameron Wescott achieve world domination of the pet food market with her odd pink dog food? Was Mama Dee Simmons really going to relinquish control of her cosmetics company to daughter D’Andra Simmons?
Lucky for us, we will soon be finding out the answers to our RHOD questions as the show is returning for Season 4. Each year, I cross my fingers that the show will be back and so far, my wishes have been granted. Thank you Bravo!
