Well hello y’all!! Here we are at the Real Housewives of Dallas reunion-WE MADE IT! It’s my first reunion blog so I hope I do it justice. Oh, and the comments got pretty heated last week so I’m hoping we’re all passionate but kind this week, please and thank you!
To the right of Andy we have Steph, Brandi and D’Andra. The opposite couch are LeeAnne, Kam, and Cary. They begin with a montage of fun times over the season and we still don’t know if the baby kangaroo was legal. Kam pronounces “bowl” like my 20 month old does, so I think it’s cute lol. We get into the Beaver Creek vacation and we find out Taylor Swift rented Kam’s house! So cool. The “Queen Bee” fight with D’Andra and LeeAnne comes up and neither will own what they actually said. I think it’s safe to call it a battle of the ego’s and y’all can decide who the winner is! D’Andra then says she has a kept a secret of LeeAnne’s for the past two years and she’ll reveal it after the commercial break. I’m hoping it’s not that deep a secret because that would be really shitty if it is.
The secret is that before she joined the show, LeeAnne told her that Cary planned to fat shame D’Andra like she fat shamed her husband in Season 1. LeeAnne says it’s a lie but Cary is mad that D’Andra would believe her. Cary is really upset by that accusation and says that she never fat shamed her husband. Kam and Steph’s baby bashing argument is revisited and Kam apologizes to Steph for misunderstanding. They discuss Brandi adopting Bruin and how it was a secret for so long. Kam wishes that she was in on the secret at some point and D’Andra says that it’s no one’s business. Kam asks her point blank if that’s no one’s business and people have boundaries, why does D’Andra get all up in LeeAnne’s business? D’Andra doesn’t answer and Cary tells her not to deflect and answer the question. Things are NOT good with D’Andra and Cary for sure!
Stephanie and her depression/past suicide attempt is highlighted, as is her vow renewal. She revealed the suicide attempt as a way to connect with LeeAnne on a deeper level. She feels like she had no self worth at the time it happened and she still struggles with depression. Steph really struggled in Season 1, but she feels like the show had given her a thicker skin. The only thing Brandi and LeeAnne will agree on is that Steph is brave for sharing her story and that she’s grown as a person. I personally love Steph so I’m happy to see her coming into her own.
LeeAnne’s reel is up next. LeeAnne says she sees two therapists, which D’Andra has an issue with as she didn’t know she had more than one. Brandi wants her to name her therapist because Tiffany (season 1 cast member) told Brandi that she doesn’t actually go to a therapist. LeeAnne’s Amygdala is discussed and all the ladies start going at each other so I can’t tell you what exactly is said other than Brandi infers that Cary is quiet only on camera. The Roundup is brought up and Cary says it was a disgruntled florist who started that rumor. D’Andra can’t believe that Cary would welcome LeeAnne into her home after repeating that rumor, but Cary says that D’Andra has said things about her that are just as bad. There’s a text from D’Andra to Kam talking crap about Cary’s business and messing up people’s faces. D’Andra denies sending the text and Kam wants to call AT&T to verify it. I want to know the crux of this fight because D’Andra is losing two long term friendships with LeeAnne and Cary and doesn’t seem to care an ounce about it. It’s sad and confusing to me, truly.
D’Andra is still denying that she sent that text and Andy will not allow them to call AT&T. Andy tells LeeAnne that her Infinity dress is the best product that he’s ever seen a housewife come up with. They highlight the fight between LeeAnne and Brandi and everyone agrees that Brandi got up in LeeAnne’s face and and provoked LeeAnne. Brandi and LeeAnne start to go at it again over what made their relationship go south after it looked like they were starting to be friends.
LeeAnne warning D’Andra about becoming friends with Brandi is what sent things south with them. Steph thinks it’s a lot deeper than that and I agree with her. They revisit the alcohol accusation and no one on the couch thinks she has a drinking problem. LeeAnne owns that she was wrong to say that and again genuinely apologizes for using that word- Brandi seems to accept it. LeeAnne had said in her blog that she recorded the conversation she had with Mama Dee about Brandi and D’Andra. LeeAnne admits to lying about recording it and it sets off a lot of yelling about lying.
Next week is more of the same. It is here that I would like to give a shout out to our fearless leader Tamara because recapping this mess in real time is HARD! Tamara does so much for this website and makes it look easy but trust me: it’s not. Love you TT =) I’m sorry if I messed this up but please know that I tried! See you in the comments!
