Brandi Redmond has had quite the season so far on The Real Housewives of Dallas. After seemingly working through her racism scandal, she’s finding herself at odds with the other women in the weirdest fights ever. She continues to be incredibly awkward around Tiffany Moon out of deep paranoia. Now, she’s in a random feud with D’Andra Simmons whom she believes has somewhat turned her back on Christianity.
For some reason Brandi is choosing the oddest hills to die on, and it’s getting weirder by the episode. For someone who is in tune with ghosts and spirits, it’s strange to watch her pick apart D’Andra for a meditation exercise. There may be a ring of truth to the claims that Brandi is acting like a cafeteria Christian. She’s picking and choosing what parts of her faith she wants to acknowledge. There’s no way she’s going to come back after all of this.
D’Andra Simmons‘ finances are none of my business, but I have always been pretty perplexed by her financial situation. I remember when LeeAnne Locken said she had $200 in her bank account and Brandi Redmond got D’Andra a necklace she wanted but didn’t (or couldn’t?) buy at the time.
We’ve seen D’Andra ask her mom Momma Dee Simmons to cut back her money received from their company. We’ve seen a lot of confusing conversations between them about their company and family finances. This season. D’Andra talked about the drama behind her late father’s second will and how the money she received put her at odds with some family members. It’s all so confusing to me (and again, none of my business), but it seems like D’Andra and her company are doing much better these days.
On last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Dallas, D’Andra Simmons was out of control on a level we’ve never seen before. Alcohol was flowing freely, and so were tense family emotions. Momma Dee Simmons didn’t think twice before spilling an alleged secret about D’Andra. According to Dee, D’Andra strategically changed her last name to Simmons so it would take her further in life. That’s quite the bold accusation.
We’ve seen Tiffany Moon struggle to fit in all season with the group. On top of that, her work stress level has been an all time high. She’s also finding it difficult to manage all of that while also trying to be the best mother possible. With a lightened work schedule greenlit by her supervisor, she has one final task ahead of her. Tiffany has to break the news about this career shift to her mother. This could come across as a massive insult to her. Let’s dive in!
Tiffany Moon has had to talk Brandi Redmond off a ledge all season on The Real Housewives of Dallas. There’s no reason for it. She’s not responsible for Brandi feeling uncomfortable. Every event turns into a therapy session needed to coddle Brandi’s fragility. That needs to stop. Tiffany has nothing to do with Brandi’s paranoia. That’s all on her.
D’Andra Simmons has showcased her spiritual journey all season of Real Housewives of Dallas. Even though the shaman stuff is a little weird at times, if it’s helping her, that’s what matters. She’s opening herself up to snide comments and criticism from the other women by hosting them for her shaman event. This tends to be a very judgmental group. I don’t think this is going to turn out the way she’s intending.
Things took the oddest turn on last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Dallas. It’s like Brandi Redmond woke up and randomly decided to come for Tiffany Moon about EVERYTHING. It bordered on insanity. First, she thought Tiffany was insinuating she was giving the group random drugs. Why would Tiffany ever do that? There’s no basis to that at all. She’s a doctor, and she was commenting on the difference in the meds. That’s all.
Later at dinner, Brandi took things a step further. She actually said she doesn’t feel like she’s able to be herself around Tiffany. What does that even mean? Are you upset you can’t mock cultures in insensitive online videos? Please explain what else could be derived from that statement? This feels entirely out of thin air. Brandi’s digging the hole deeper and deeper for herself. Maybe she really will be gone for good after this Real Housewives of Dallas season.
Real Housewives of Dallas finally returned and Season 5 started with a bang. Brandi Redmond cried because she made an ignorant video, but she’s totally sorry so it’s apparently okay. Kary Brittingham is complaining about food and lowkey bullying people to take shots after a season of complaining about LeeAnne Locken’s bullying and complaining. And D’Andra Simmons is having some random dude stick a tube up her nose to suck out any bad juju residing in her sinus cavity.
Yep, it’s strange but it’s what we’re working with. There’s a lot going on, the ladies are filming during the pandemic. Sometimes it’s difficult to keep up with the new guidelines or what’s happening with each person. While Mama Dee’s Queen of Sheba wig will live rent free in all of our minds forever, not everything sticks. So while D’Andra is getting haunted smoke blown in her face from the shaman in an effort to improve her life, she is also taking notes to give to producers to improve her scenes.
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.
Technically speaking, Real Housewives of Dallas is an ensemble show. However, all roads led back to LeeAnne Locken for the first four seasons of the show. So, how is RHOD going to fare now that LeeAnne is gone?
Now that LeeAnne is done with the Real Housewife life, she’s spilling some tea on her former castmates. And, apparently, she’s actually friends with… wait for it, Kary Brittingham, of all people. Now that is a twist that I never saw coming, especially since LeeAnne left the show following the offensive comments she made about Kary’s Mexican heritage. How on earth did these two become friends?
