Good evenin’ y’all!! Here we are again for another round(up) of our favorite Dallas ladies. We open with Brandi going to Stephanie’s house to help Steph plan a spa day for the ladies. Stephanie is interviewing shirtless men to make the spa day at her house extra special. OMGEEEE Stephanie’s bathroom deserves a blog just for being amazing! She was right when she said it’s like going to a real spa- spa tub, couch and fireplace in the sitting room FOR THE BATHROOM! One of the interviewees brings a diapered kangaroo and that’s not even the best part of the scene: that bathroom though! In love. LeeAnne is getting makeup done for a video to promote the attachment dress she’s making and Kam joins her. They discuss the smash party and LeeAnne is still reeling from D’Andra attacking her. LeeAnne feels like it was a performance. LeeAnne had told Cary about the 200 dollar issue in private and Detective PinkylaPew is on to something again calling Cary out on her betraying LeeAnne’s confidence. Kam doesn’t want to go to Brandi’s upcoming event because she feels like Cary plays both sides and I agree with her a thousand percent. TT liked the dress and I have to say, I’ve come around a little bit with the different colored attachments. It makes the basic black dress look different. TT and her keen fashion eye =)
Brandi’s event is here and it’s a trunk show for her Brandiland clothing. It’s a marina/resort line-is that a thing? Cary and D’Andra ride together and Cary is impressed with Brandi. She then puts her Birkin in a “raincoat” and D’Andra is just as incredulous as I am. Girl if your bag can’t get wet, why bring it out on a rainy night??? Brandi iinvited everyone and puts Kam and D’Andra in Brandiland clothing. LeeAnne says Brandi’s clothes are “cute” but won’t wear them.
Kam takes Cary aside to talk about Cary playing both sides. Cary asks for an example and Kam brings up the Stephanie/Kam argument in Beaver Creek. Cary points her finger at Kam and Kam doesn’t like that-it’s pretty genius actually. She could see Cary getting her panties in a bunch and diffuses it by making a big deal out of a finger wagging. Cary is thrown off but is not one to ever back down from the opportunity to have a condescing argument. She calls Stephanie over and Kam starts to meltdown. Poor Steph has zero clue what is going on but does know her appearance made it worse! Haha. Kam walks away upset.
LeeAnne and D’Andra talk and D’Andra jabs LeeAnne about her being “poor” and LeeAnne apologizes to D’Andra again. In person D’Andra accepts but in her talking head she doesn’t and (in my opinion) is most embarrassed that Kam knows anything about her finances. I do believe LeeAnne is sorry and she knows she messed up. Stephanie comes over and wants to know why Kam left the conversation. Cary comes over as well. The other ladies leave Cary and Kam to talk and Cary apologizes but Kam feels that Cary didn’t protect her in Mexico with the Brandi/dildo incident a few seasons ago. Kam has known Cary for 8 years but was hurt that she put her loyalty to Brandi and Steph over her. Cary tells Kam that she shut down a Brandi and Steph prank that involved a set a balls for Kam in Beaver Creek so that proves her loyalty. They go over to Brandi and Cary reiterates the story to Brandi but Brandi calls Ball-shit. Brandi decided not to give her the balls, Cary didn’t persuade anything.
LeeAnne and Steph discuss the spa day happening the next day and Steph wants to reiterate to LeeAnne that she is genuinely her friend. She won’t get caught up in the drama. LeeAnne feels that Steph is different around Brandi and Steph agrees. Steph admits to focusing more on Brandi than her other friends. LeeAnne wants Steph, Kam and LeeAnne to go to lunch to establish a bond between them all. All the ladies except Steph leave and she and Brandi talk about what Cary told Kam about the ball prank. Brandi is upset because she feels like Cary threw her under the bus in order to make herself look better. Brandi is vulnerable in the group with her home life and not sleeping. Steph tells Brandi to ask for help because she’s clearly drowning. I can relate to this raising two older children (13 and 9) and then having a 17 month old. It’s stressful, it’s lonely, it’s all consuming and you never feel like you give everyone their due attention. Brandi is pretty raw in her talking head though she’s holding on with Steph. It’s a genuine scene and yet another reason this franchise is one of the best.
Spa day is here and Steph goes all out-she got the ladies monogrammed robes and slippers. Baby kangaroo is there in a robe! So cute. She has two guys in togas outside to greet the ladies and hands out tiaras. is in awe of the bathroom suite and Cary loves the kangaroo. LeeAnne is sure it’s not legal but that it’s really cute. Everyone but Kam and D’Andra are there so Brandi and Cary go to get their nails done while LeeAnne and Steph get massages. Brandi tells Cary about how she’s hurt that Cary spun the prank story in her own favor and made Brandi look bad. Cary admits she felt the need to defend herself and apologized for hurting Brandi in the process.
Stephanie and LeeAnne are getting along well. LeeAnne asks about the Cary/Kam/Steph conversation and LeeAnne says Cary will never be neutral which again, I completely agree with. Brandi says that LeeAnne was the one who pulled Kam aside at the rodeo and told Kam that Brandi is a bad influence. Brandi feels like Kam has a double standard with the ladies, that it’s ok for LeeAnne to be brash and dance dirty but Brandi can’t be herself. She feels like Kam is being manipulated by LeeAnne and Cary feels like she has to report back to LeeAnne about what Brandi just told her. Not shit stirring AT ALL. Kam is home and tells Kourt about her amazing time at the Pet Expo. She couldn’t breathe or leave the booth to pee she was so busy! Kourt is happy about that but he wants contracts. Kourt is frustrated that his time is being wasted with this and Kam vows to follow up with all the people she spoke to at the Expo. Kourt doesn’t understand why Kam isn’t satisfied just being a mom but Kam wants to be an entrepreneur too.
Whoooo! What an episode! Next week Cary and LeeAnne talk, D’Andra and her mom try to make up, D’Andra questions Rich’s faithfulness to LeeAnne-because good friend. See you next week!!!
