The ladies of Real Housewives Of Dallas entered the ring with their guns blazing, their stilettos sharpened like razors, and their eyes shooting daggers through the 64 layers of wet look eyeshadow. Their dresses are designed to blind, confuse, and kill as all the sequins reflect off everyone’s egos causing insanity.
I actually think Andy Cohen was on fire last night and was a great moderator; pushing back against the nastiness and crap.
This reunion is all about D’Andra Simmons, and her feuds with literally everyone. Which is apt because the very first thing that was discussed was Beaver Creek and the fight D’Andra had with LeeAnne Locken over who is the queen of Real Housewives Of Dallas.
Hopefully you’ve all recovered from your turkey comas to get back onto the internet to see how all our reality star families celebrated Thanksgiving.
Above, Shannon Beador celebrated Thanksgiving without David. “Blessed with my amazing family! #3beautifuldaughters #sweetestdogever #grandmapatishere,” the Real Housewives Of Orange County star shared. “Hope that everyone has had a Happy Thanksgiving! Love having my mom in town! And a huge thank you for the very kind comments this week!”
The Real Housewives of Dallas chugs along into another over the top episode. The Mexico trip has ended kind of abruptly and we’re back in Dallas. This episode had all the ingredients of a classic real housewives disaster. They’re deep into the season, the cast trip is behind them and loyalties are changing and a flesh-eating bacteria has entered the picture! The ladies are all back to their Dallas lives. Cary Deuber and Mark Deuber catch up and unpack. Cary is very low energy, sitting with her arms folded; telling her husband that she only had a good time with Kameron Westcott and D’Andra Simmons. She goes on to say that Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman didn’t have her back and hasn’t talked to them since. Cary carefully tells her husband that LeeAnne Locken said he goes to the bars and has guys hit on him. Mark keeps his cool but says that he doesn’t need people to ruin them and walks out.
Brandi (and her misbehaving daughters) go to check out the venue for the upcoming white party. Brandi explains that she has an annual themed Christmas party. We’re treated to pictures of her husband in a bathing suit and one in a onesie. An “Event Designer” is all excited about some 6ft light up marquee sign that says “Play”. (??) In her interview, Brandi introduces us to Win, her white reindeer. We’re told they both don’t believe in boundaries, so watch out Kameron. Back in the event space, Stephanie joins and Brandi says she’s still upset with Cary. They’re both weirded out by fighting with their ex-friend. Stephanie gives Cary credit for being there for her when she had no one and just doesn’t want to get in the middle. Shouldn’t she mediate between the two before it gets ugly?
At first, I wasn’t feeling the first Real Housewives of Dallas season, but it started to grow on me (which is not at all surprising since I watch every single show on Bravo). I was excited to see what direction the show would go in if it came back for another season. Fortunately, the show will be back, but sadly there is one original cast member that will not be back on Real Housewives of Dallas.
Apparently, I’m not the only one who felt like RHOD could use some excitement, so it’s not shocking to hear that two new ladies will be added to the mix. Also, one original cast member reportedly got the ax after just one season. I’m sure she’ll play things off like it was her decision, but I find it hard to believe anyone from Season 1 would walk away from the show.
Reality Tea is ranking ALL the Housewives from every season and every city! Our list is broken down into three parts with Housewives ranked from worst to ‘best’ (or best of the worst, if you will). Below is Part 1.
What makes a superior species of Housewives? Is it class? Money? Fabulous plastic surgery and good shoes? Beautiful home? A revolving door of crazy that keeps us on our cheaply-clad toes? Is it a supportive husband? An in-home zoo of fabulous miniature fluff balls clad in their own designer wardrobe? Is it a witty zinger or indispensable advice? Is it their ability to rewrite history without irony? To crack open the egg of their emotional travails in front of cameras? Or is it their ability to deftly control the scenery while cracking a Chanel whip?
