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.
The addition of a new cast member brings a lot of anticipation. How will they fit into the group? Who will they bicker with? And most importantly, is the new house tour. Even more exciting, is entering the Real Housewives closet. We get to know a new personality, and a new style.
When Dr. Tiffany Moon joined Real Housewives of Dallas for its fifth season, her closet definitely did not disappoint. It was, in fact, exquisite. So exquisite that Tiffany uses a top of the line fingerprint lock to safeguard it all. But that’s not the extend of all the security she has for her most prized possessions.
Well, we made it. Season five of Real Housewives of Dallas has finally come to a close. This season still felt like an entire circus gone wrong, despite being one carnie short. This season was the first without former Housewife LeeAnne Locken. Or was it?
Viewers may have noticed in the Part II reunion teaser this week, LeeAnne’s name was dropped. The comments were in regards to the Bryan Redmond cheating rumors being spread all over the internet. ICYMI: A video leaked about a month ago showing either Bryan, or a strong look-alike, kissing a girl in a crowded bar. Not the only cheating rumor floating around those two, either. In any event, the women seem to think LeeAnne is the source of this info getting loose.
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?
With the camping trip out of the way, it’ll be interesting to see how things develop for The Real Housewives Of Dallas. Kary Brittingham was the absolute worst on that entire trip, and her behavior was despicable. The audacity to be that cruel and humiliate someone on national television the way she did to the Bigfoot hunter was gut wrenching. Stephanie Hollman should have held her accountable at a much higher level than she did. Shame on both of them.
Everyone in the group is in a decent place right now. It makes you wonder when the other shoe’s going to drop in the drama will break back out again. Brandi Redmond is finally starting to act more like herself around the group. Tiffany Moon is finally fitting in with the other women after the rockiest start of all time. However, in this group of women it doesn’t take much for the peace to be thrown out the window and the drama to kick into high gear.
Newbie Tiffany Moon had a bumpy season on Real Housewives of Dallas. Tiffany accused co-star Kary Brittingham of bullying her by trying to force her to drink tequila shots. At Kary’s ridiculous 50th birthday party, she pushed a fully dressed Tiffany in the pool. And Tiffany doesn’t know how to swim. What 50-year-old woman wants hot models to spray her with bottles of champagne? Apparently, Kary does.
RHOD co-star Kameron Westcott said that Tiffany talked down to her. Stephanie Hollman called Tiffany “obnoxious” for showing off her closet. If my closet had a fingerprint lock, I would show it off, too. That closet was magical.
