Bravolebrities are a delightful microcosm of reality TV stars. Whether your distraction of choice is one of the Real Housewives series or a Below Deck spinoff, the Bravo channel is a self-sustaining entertainment community. Fan favorites from different shows get screen time on Watch What Happens Live, where they mix and mingle with Andy Cohen.
It’s a good environment for cross-cast friendships to develop. Maybe a little flirting as well. Take Alex Radcliffe and Heather Gay. The Real Housewife of Salt Lake City star was on WWHL with the Below Deck Mediterranean deck hand for the holiday episode. It was filmed virtually, but the two seem to have breached the screen barrier and hit it off. Maybe it was the sight of Alex in a Santa suit. More on that later.
Tiffany Moon hasn’t wasted any time sharing her culture with the ladies. The Real Housewives of Dallas are out of their comfort zone more than ever before. We’re actually about to have a full on feud over the refusal to consume a chicken foot. Kameron Westcott may have the palate of a third grader, but who is Tiffany to berate her for that? Tiffany is bringing some rich vibes this season, but at what point does that turn to snotty?
Now that the group is moving on from the Brandi Redmond racist video mocking Asians, the future is becoming clearer. There’s obviously something brewing between Kary Brittingham & D’Andra Simmons. Who claims to be someone’s friend and then berates them the way Kary did to her on last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Dallas. A small amount of playful teasing is one thing. However, Kary is coming off like a bully. Will D’Andra hold her accountable?
Well, it’s come to this. Now we are debating how one person’s ignorance is better than another person’s ignorance. It’s no secret Real Housewives of Dallas star Kary Brittingham never got along with former co-worker LeeAnne Locken. To be fair, no one really got along with LeeAnne. It was more a matter of not triggering her and staying on the good side of whatever personality she was using on a particular day.
Though LeeAnne was an anchor of the show, her mouth got her in trouble and she was pretty much shown the door. After making numerous comments about Kary that were less than politically correct, LeeAnne became another casualty of Bravo’s racist reckoning. The same cannot be said for Brandi Redmond, however. Several years ago, Brandi made a social media video mocking Asians. As an extra bonus, she did it in front of her kids. When Kary defended Brandi’s actions, LeeAnne felt some type of way. And this is why two people who barely spoke in the first place are no longer speaking.
By all accounts, Tiffany Moon of Real Housewives of Dallas is having a smashing start to her first season. The doctor and super-rich housewife has already tackled racism with costar, Brandi Redmond. She then went on to call out Kary Brittingham as a bully for trying to force her to do tequila shots. All while hosting a traditional Chinese lunch and getting the ladies to try chicken feet.
Yep, Tiffany is really working all her angles. And I would love to see more of her closet, no matter what Stephanie Hollman thinks. But busting out of the gates in your first season is sure to win you some enemies amongst the cast. And it sounds like not everyone is feeling Tiffany.
During the latest episode of Real Housewives of Dallas, newbie Tiffany Moon hosted a brunch for the cast, which included a chicken feet appetizer. Kameron Westcott and Stephanie Hollman weren’t comfortable branching out to try the chicken feet, which bothered Tiffany.
It was great that she was trying to expose them to her culture, but was she a little too pushy? It’s especially ironic since she just complained about Kary Brittingham pushing her to take tequila shots. That’s pretty much the same thing she was doing to Kameron and Stephanie. Pot, meet kettle.
For anyone who was wondering about how Real Housewives of Dallas would fare without LeeAnne Locken stirring up drama, well, there’s no need to worry now that Tiffany Moon is here. After the most recent episode, she continued to argue with Kary Brittingham, Stephanie Hollman, and Kameron Westcott on social media.
During the second episode of the season, Tiffany said that Kary was way too pushy with the tequila shots. As a result, Tiffany felt like she was hazed and bullied. Well, a week later, some of the ladies thought Tiffany was way too pushy trying to get them to eat chicken feet at her brunch. Tiffany was just trying to introduce her culture to the Dallas ladies, but some of them didn’t love her approach.
Season 5 of Real Housewives of Dallas has finally begun, and I am here for it! LeeAnne Locken has left the building, and Tiffany Moon has joined the franchise. Tiffany has some impressive credentials. She is not only an an anesthesiologist, but also an Associate Professor of Anesthesiology and Pain Management at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
The Dallas ladies are filming during Covid, so having a physician around might come in handy! Tiffany is married and has twin daughters. It will be interesting to see how she balances her career, home life, and filming RHOD.
Is everyone ready for the first Real Housewives of Dallas season without LeeAnne Locken? While she may have been a lightning rod for drama on the show, she also brought a lot of heavy baggage. The cast is going to feel so much lighter and fresher without her in the mix. All of the women besides LeeAnne are back this season, and they’re joined by newbie Tiffany Moon. It’ll be curious to see how she addresses Brandi Redmond’s racist video mocking Asian people.
The women are tasked with filming during the global pandemic, and that’s no easy feat. COVID has struck everyone in different ways, so watching these ladies navigate the virus is going to be fascinating. This season has boatloads of potential, and it would be nice to see them climb the hierarchy of Housewives cities. They’ve been at the bottom for far too long. Perhaps with this fresh new vibe, they can show fans that everything truly is bigger in Texas.
