LeeAnne Locken

Tiffany Moon D'Andra Simmons Real Housewives Of Dallas

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.

Woman Who Was Caught In Video With Bryan Redmond Anonymously Shares Her Story; Says It Was Just A “One Night Thing”

Prior to the season finale of Real Housewives of Dallas, Brandi Redmond had already seemingly announced her exit from the series altogether. Brandi had revealed a pregnancy only one week prior. Still, it seemed like the reason for her exit had more to do with her horribly received antics in season 5. It wasn’t until the finale episodes that viewers learned Brandi’s reasoning may actually have something to do with her husband, Bryan Redmond.

Listen, it’s never good when there are multiple excuses to leave a reality show in the dead of night. In this case, it got darker quick. In March an old (pre-pandemic) cell-phone video leaked showing a man who appeared to be Bryan getting close and personal with a young woman in a club setting.  The video quality wasn’t tops, to say the least. Some speculated that Bryan and the woman smooched. Others thought they saw a drug exchange. The moment was addressed in the Season 5 reunion by Brandi and the other women.

Cary Deuber Hints At Possible Return To Real Housewives Of Dallas

Let’s discuss the Real Housewives of Dallas it’s precarious status after a frustrating season. Kary Brittingham dumped salsa on beds and spent the majority of the time with her new BFF tequila. Stephanie Hollman blinked a lot and defended her buddy after making a video mocking Asians, and a social media exercise in how to be a complete dick courtesy of Kameron Westcott’s family went down after the reunion. The whole thing was a mess.

Losing LeeAnne Locken to asshole comments about Kary’s heritage taught no lessons in sensitivity or owning mistakes and Season 5 fell apart after recently-tapped Tiffany Moon arrived as the first Asian cast member. Fans were appalled at how Tiffany was treated and Brandi Redmond’s self-imposed victimization of a tone deaf video no one forced her to make didn’t help. Viewers called for firings or cancelling the show completely and now rumors are swirling some ladies are out. If one door closes, another one opens, and Cary Deuber might be behind door number one.

Virtual BravoCon Brought To Teenager With Terminal Illness; Andy Cohen And Housewives Make A 13-Year-Old’s Dreams Come True

We could all use some kindness, but the last place you expect to see it is on Bravo. But damn it, call your friends and family because this story managed to melt even my hardened, dark, barely beating heart. Go ahead and grab a tissue because the sun might get in your eyes or you could be at risk of suffering a spontaneous allergy attack after this one. Bravo and the shows on Bravo are many things to many people, but sometimes it’s everything to one person. Today we meet Miss Bella Pape.

Bella loves reality television and all that it implies, her favorites are the Real Housewives and she’s quite familiar with the franchise. But Bella isn’t binge-watching shows on a rainy day, she was born with a disorder that has kept her in long-term care for most of her life. In 2020 Bella was hoping to attend BravoCon, but it was cancelled due to the pandemic. The event has returned in 2021, but Bella’s health is deteriorating and traveling is no longer an option. So the troops rallied and brought BravoCon to Bella, thanks to Real Housewives of D.C. alum, Mary Amons.

Alex Radcliffe Malia White Below Deck Mediterranean

There are certain Bravolebrities that annoy me and I don’t care for. Kyle Richards. Melissa Gorga. Lisa Rinna. But then there are some who have just committed the unforgivable over the years. Jax Taylor. LeeAnne Locken. Malia White. I cannot tell you how much I loathe these people. And ever since Malia narc’d out Hannah Ferrier for having meds that helped her combat mental illness, Malia is at the top of my list. So for all you Malia fans, you might want to skip this one!

When Malia did Hannah dirty, it resulted in Hannah’s firing. And the backlash against Malia was pretty swift. So I thought for sure she wouldn’t be back for another season. And I was wrong.

Kary Brittingham Real Housewives Of Dallas

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.

LeeAnne Locken Doubles Down Denying She Exposed Brandi Redmond’s Husband’s Infidelity; Has More Receipts

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.

Tiffany Moon

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.
