Is it safe to say that the Real Housewives of Dallas is finally getting into the groove? Season 5 of Dallas covered every style of hot mess available. Mother-daughter drama, the pandemic, cheating rumors, on and on. That said, the real contention didn’t come out until filming had wrapped. Let’s not forget how this cast dragged LeeAnne Locken into things with mere minutes left at the reunion. That’s called a franchise Hail Mary, folks.
Then there was Kameron Westcott getting her husband and brother-in-law into the post-air Twitter drama! Never thought I’d see Miss Priss stoop to RHONJ levels, but here we are.
The Real Housewives of Dallas really tried it this last season. The franchise had two major blemishes to address. The first of which was carnie LeeAnne Locken who acted like a clown referring to her co-star, Kary Brittingham, as a “chirpy Mexican.” On camera no less! LeeAnne was shown the exit, seemingly easily, after that one. Brandi Redmond, on the other hand, was allowed back after her between-season-call-out for blatantly mocking Asians on her very public Twitter. While Brandi sought a retreat to cure her ignorance, Bravo also had the marvelous idea to add Asian immigrant Housewife Dr. Tiffany Moon to the cast! What could go wrong!?
While I think it was obvious Brandi never stood a chance of redemption, did anyone see the following Kameron Westcott parade of mis-information coming? Her brother-in-law got involved via Twitter. For someone named after an informational graphic, Chart Westcott really miffed his attempt to school Tiffany.
Dr. Tiffany Moon was a much-needed edition to the Real Housewives of Dallas cast. The anesthesiologist brought tremendous intelligence, quirk, and emotional maturity to the show. She is also the first Asian American housewife on RHOD, and goodness knows the cast needed some diversity, especially after the shameful departure of LeeAnne Locken last season.
The introduction of Tiffany to the show also coincided with the emergence of a social media post in which Brandi Redmond depicted an Asian stereotype. So as Season 5 began, if anyone seemed that they were walking on the thin ice of cancel culture, it would have been Brandi. However, she showed so much remorse and humility, that Brandi and Tiffany were able to move forward. Brandi listened and learned, and Tiffany forgave her for her previous wrong-doing.
Once again drama is unfolding on the Real Housewives of Dallas. The show is not currently in production and these things are basically happening in real time on social media, so we are reporting the information as we receive it. This morning, Tiffany Moon changed her bio on both Twitter and Instagram accounts stating “Previous Cast Member #RHOD S5″. She also included a post referencing “it’s time for a change” and fans believed this was Tiffany excluding herself from the current narrative.
We’ve been here before with cast members perhaps pulling a stunt for attention-seeking purposes, but Tiffany recently engaged in a Twitter battle with Kameron Westcott that resulted in both Kameron’s husband and brother-in-law attacking Tiffany. After this morning’s announcement, viewers speculated perhaps Tiffany’s implied departure was the fallout from this correspondence. In the interim, Tiffany’s bio changed BACK and removed any connotation she is leaving. But that’s not the only thing that changed, it looks like Tiff might have lawyered up and is ready to battle for real.
