With the Season 10 premiere of Real Housewives of New York on its way, expect more photos from the show’s stars on social media, just in time to get us all hyped up.
With Christmas fast-approaching, there is so much to enjoy from decorating, from holiday shows to even turning up with friends. Your favorite reality stars celebrated the holidays a little bit early and shared some photos just in time for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
The Real Housewives of New York stars Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer gathered for the annual Christmas party at Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires home. Where was Carole Radziwill, though? Maybe she’s the one who took the group photo. Otherwise it would be a real shame if she missed out on a Dorinda-hosted event after she “cooked, decorated, and made it nice.”
I haven’t weighed in much on Real Housewives Of Dallas (too much going on with Real Housewives Of Orange County), but I have loved season 2 and my favorite is definitely D’Andra Simmons. I like how she calls out LeeAnne Locken in a direct and dignified way, and I enjoy how self-deprecating, silly, and sarcastic she comes across. Dare I say it but D’Andra seems like a Real Housewives unicorn – she’s REAL.
Anyway, following part 2 of the reunion, D’Andra explains some of the contention that went on and continues to defend her friendship with LeeAnn.
On poor maligned LeeAnne being ‘brave’ enough to face Mark without Rich: “LeeAnne and I are similar; we’re used to facing the music alone. We know it’s better to just get the discussion over with instead of letting it drag out, even if it means jumping into a pool of piranhas that are craving us for dinner!” says D’andra. “LeeAnne was the bigger person for coming back, especially when she knew she was going to be the target.”
The first episode from the Real Housewives of Dallas Season 2 reunion has been a LeeAnne Locken bashing session. In reality, everyone on the opposite couch should be grateful for LeeAnne’s antics blessing them with a story line, but no one seems to get that. Thankfully D’Andra Simmons has LeeAnne’s back and seems to be the most reasonable person in the cast.
D’Andra is the only person who can check LeeAnne and defend her just as well- and LeeAnne really needed the latter after that brutal first part of the reunion.
Cary Deuber has a lot to say about last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Dallas. She admits she felt sad, defeated, and alone after Brandi-Land. “Love and trust – two qualities that I expect from my friends,” shares Cary. “Right now, I am not feeling either.”
About her talk with Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman, Cary explains, “I was respectful and direct with beginning my explanation. However, LeeAnne [Locken] didn’t want for the FULL story or my apology to be heard at all. When she didn’t get a reaction out of me, that’s when the glass throwing happened … I think it’s true when people are put under pressure, their true selves are shown.”
It feels like there is a revolving door of friendships on Real Housewives of Dallas– in a good way though. They argue, talk shit, make up, and the argue about something new. It’s the way Real Housewives should be- unlike some other shows in the franchise that drag out the same plot line for YEARS.
One of the many confusing relationships on RHOD is the one between LeeAnne Locken and Brandi Redmond. Last season, they could not stand each other. Season 2 started out with Brandi being on the outs with her ride or die Stephanie Hollman and leaning on LeeAnne (of all people!) for support and that is why this show is actually so good in it’s second season: the story keeps moving forward.
Even though the Real Housewives of Dallas Season 2 reunion hasn’t aired yet, it is very clear that there are two distinct sides: LeeAnne Locken, D’Andra Simmons, and Kameron Westcott vs. Brandi Redmond, Stephanie Hollman, and Cary Deuber. Sure there’s been a revolving door of friendships this season with LeeAnne and Brandi getting along here and there, but the long term loyalties are pretty obvious – minus Cary bouncing back and force between both camps.
The self-proclaimed “Mouth from the South” LeeAnne opened up about the last RHOD episode and the recently taped reunion.
To put it mildly, Kameron Westcott has not had the best reception from Real Housewives of Dallas fans. So it’s sadly not surprising that Andy Cohen asked “Does Kameron think she is better than everyone else?” during an audience poll on Watch What Happens Live. Hopefully watching this season back will allow Kameron to get it together if she returns next season, but she doesn’t seem to be fazed by the criticism.
Maybe the reunion will be a different story though. Joining Kameron on the show was fellow RHOD newbie D’Andra Simmons and they had a lot to say about Cary Deuber and Mark Deuber’s marriage and Brandi Redmond of course.
