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.
Real Housewives of Dallas opened with Brandi Redmond struggling to navigate fallout from a racist video she made in 2017. On the heels of that clip resurfacing, RHOD introduced the first Asian Housewife on the franchise. Dr. Tiffany Moon attempted to balance her new relationships along with Brandi’s controversy accordingly, but the result was difficult to watch.
Self-produced ignorant videos weren’t Brandi’s only problem. Her husband Bryan Redmond had a viral moment as well. Bryan wasn’t mocking another race but he was allegedly releasing the ginger Kraken on some woman in a bar. Then, according to Brandi, “a fan” sent the salacious moment to Brandi’s daughter. For some reason, LeeAnne Locken’s name was brought up suspecting she both released the video and sent it to Brandi’s kid. LeeAnne has already attempted to exclude herself from this narrative, but not before she has to deny another accusation.
Dr. Tiffany Moon can save your life, but not your reputation. No truer words have been spoken after this season of Real Housewives of Dallas. Tiffany essentially replaced LeeAnne Locken after she totally wasn’t fired for mocking fellow cast member Kary Brittingham’s Mexican heritage – multiple times. LeeAnne was burned at the stake during the Season 4 reunion and took a seat in the buh-bye chair. But that wouldn’t be RHOD’s last tango with racism.
Ahead of Season 5, a video Brandi Redmond made in 2017 resurfaced where she was making fun of Asians. That resulted in Brandi having a chip on her shoulder during production. As the first Asian lady to join the show, Tiffany was already walking into a controversial environment. As the episodes wrapped up, Tiff began alluding to being a one and done due to work and family obligations. Looks can be deceiving, but it seems this one is definitely done.
Tiffany Moon did NOT come to play at the Real Housewives of Dallas reunion. She read the women up and down throughout the entire episode. Kameron Westcott was especially hit by the truth bombs coming from the Dallas newbie. Tiffany scored the coveted seat next to Andy Cohen, and she proved why she deserved that accolade. It’s a shame that nobody in her life wants her on the show because she EXCELS in this role.
The most puzzling part of last week’s episode was Brand Redmond’s silence. Why was she even there? Did she even speak once? She has the most to answer for (besides Kary Brittingham), so let’s here what she has to say! We need to hear her speak out about the video of herself mocking Asians. Someone make a dramatic scene and place a chair in the center for her. We need to hear her thoughts on the wild rumors about her husband Bryan Redmond! Let’s hear it!
Kary Brittingham had a rough season on Real Housewives of Dallas. I actually really liked her last season and I thought that she got a really raw deal having to put up with LeeAnne Locken the whole time. Kary definitely didn’t deserve it, but fans were still divided on her prickly demeanor.
This season is a whole different story. Kary has fought nonstop with everyone and been accused of bullying. One time bestie D’Andra Simmons ultimately seemed to get past their issues. But newbie Tiffany Moon was far from pleased with Kary’s constant partying antics. Now we have a much better understanding of why Kary was acting the way she was acting.
The Real Housewives Of Dallas Reunion is FINALLY HERE. Strap in because this one is going to be a wild one. There’s so much to unpack this season. It seemed like every episode contained another themed party or trip that stirred up drama. From the video of Brandi Redmond mocking Asians to Kary Brittingham’s new bully status. A lot has gone down this season, and Andy Cohen’s going to MENTION IT ALL.
Tiffany Moon has the seat next to Andy which means she’s going to be a major player. She was involved in quite a bit of drama for her first season. Her personal story line was also one of the more gripping ones as well. Tiffany brought everything that a Housewife needs to be successful on this show. Hopefully she tasks everyone to task for their backwards thinking and inappropriate actions. Someone needs to!
Real Housewives of Dallas star Brandi Redmond’s life has been a roller coaster lately. In January of 2020, a Twitter user posted a video of Brandi mocking Asian people. As a result, Brandi checked into a wellness center. Brandi’s ride-or-die friend, Stephanie Hollman, defended Brandi, saying that she was not a racist, but that “she made a horrible mistake.”
Season 5 RHOD newbie Tiffany Moon, who is Chinese, discussed the video and its effects with Brandi. Then Tiffany moved on, even if Brandi couldn’t. During the season finale, the Dallas ladies stayed at Southfork Ranch, the setting for the legendary television series, Dallas. Brandi and Kary Brittingham drunkenly murdered part of J.R Ewing’s bedroom. It was an embarrassing “situation,” thanks mostly to Kary.
Tiffany Moon. Period. Thank you Tiffany for breathing new life into The Real Housewives of Dallas. Looking at the returning cast, the lineup wasn’t that impressive heading into this season. However, the first season Housewife delivered in every possible way. The regular season might be coming to a close, but would we even have made it this far without her? D’Andra Simmons as well! Both of them were TOP TIER cast members this season.
One Housewife that many had soured on before the season even began was Brandi Redmond. Following her racist video mocking Asians, it’s astounding she remained on the cast. Why let LeeAnne Locken go but keep Brandi? Quite the odd decision. Speaking of LeeAnne, her nemesis last season Kary Brittingham had quite the sophomore season herself. Is there any hope to deem herself before the reunion?
