The person doing publicity for RHOD is not making things easy. First of all on the media site it refers to the season as season eight. Also most of the professional photography is listed with many of the ladies listed as from different seasons. And then there is the whole premiering the new season on NYE as a preview. It seems it also premieres at the new time regular time on Tuesday January 5th. Clear as mud, right? Also the date is wrong for when the premiere airs. It says it premiered yesterday it did not. I’ve never seen this before. Let’s check out the taglines and looks.
Stephanie: I don’t need your approval. I need you to get out of my way.
This season, after years of being a doting mother and wife, Stephanie is eager to return to work and launches her own foundation. When her husband, Travis, questions her ability to follow through, she sets on a course to prove him wrong. WOW it seems like her tagline is about Travis!
Kary: If you take a shot at me, it better be tequila.
In an attempt to heal the wounds left behind by her chaotic childhood, Kary is working on rebuilding her relationship with her mother. Afraid of making the same mistake with her own children, the pandemic has prompted Kary to take a hard look at what is most important to her. Is Kary talking about her mom here? Everyone seems to be taking pot shots on this season of RHOD!
Tiffany: I can save your life, but not your reputation.
New housewife and physician Tiffany Moon joins this season, wasting no time inserting herself into the drama with the ladies. Tiffany was born in a small town just outside of Beijing, China. She moved to the United States when she was just 6 years old. The product of extreme Tiger parents, she graduated college at 19 years old. Then she got her MD at age 23 finishing in the top 10 percent of her class. She’s coming on a as D’Andra’s friend. Tiffany struggles to find the balance between her demanding job as a frontline worker during the pandemic and being a wife and a mother to 5-year-old twin girls.
Brandi: Take it from me, a sinner is a saint who just keeps on trying.
Brandi’s racist Asian video comes back to haunt her when Tiffany shows up in the first episode. After LeeAnne’s firing for racism last season, Brandi is on thin ice. And Brandi was driving the self-righteous train that ran LeeAnne over. Karma is coming for her hard this season. And her name is Tiffany. Edit: Oh I forgot, after her mother in law was killed in a car accident with Brinkley in the car, she reported she was pregnant a couple weeks later. I think the baby is a girl and do in due in mid-spring. But don’t quote me on that.
D’Andra: Dallas girls are sugar and spice, but I’m still working on nice.
D’Andra struggles to get in touch with her sensitive side and reconcile with part of her family she hasn’t seen or spoken to in years. In an effort to become a more forgiving person, she enlists the help of a Shaman. But when conflict arises with Kary, her new skills are quickly put to the test.
Kam: I love to be pampered, but I’m nobody’s pet.
With her house on the market, Kameron is desperately looking for a buyer before her dream house slips away, but her husband Court is keeping her in the dark on the logistics. As she struggles with her husband treating her as an equal partner, she also has trouble connecting with new housewife Tiffany. It looks like Kam is going to have some marital issues. And Tiffany is not going to probably take to Kam’s dumb girl, cutesy act. Also, Kam had a huge garage sale in June that was filmed with Brandi. There was a lot of backlash about having a garage sale during a pandemic. People around here do it all the time though.
Jennifer Davis Long will appear as a friend on RHOD Season Five.
There isn’t really any copy on the new friend. It was hard enough to find the copy on the actual RHOD. But there were rumors circulating during early filming. Jennifer is a hot shot realtor. Her husband is allegedly a photographer? Again these are rumors. They have been married for seven years. But, her husband abruptly stopped filming very early on or decided not to film.
The Dallas rumor mill says their marriage is in jeopardy. On June 1, Jennifer posted “We fell in love, we got married, we had a Camelot life. Then, tragedy struck. Many of you don’t know our story, but will soon. We weathered the storm, we fought for our daughter, we fought for us, and we fought for love. The water was rocky, but we didn’t jump ship. Loving and losing are such similar words, and sometimes it’s hard to have one without some form of the other. David, I love you with my whole heart. Seven years with you, and I am right where I am meant to be!”
And then he is never mentioned again and she is alone with her daughter who was allowed to film. Looks like the housewives divorce curse was quick with this one.
Bravo will be airing the full season premiere episode of RHOD early as a sneak peek on Thursday, December 31 at 8/7c. Season 5 will officially premiere on Tuesday, January 5 at 9/8c.
