Would you believe it… more Real Housewives content!
Because this Sydney lockdown is never-ending, I’ve had all the time in the world to catch up on some Real Housewives franchises. After finishing Atlanta, I decided to watch Real Housewives of Dallas because I have such a love for the Southern charm that’s in Texas.
While the other franchises that I’ve reviewed and ranked on here had featured several women across a lot of seasons, RHOD has only featured nine housewives across five seasons. While the future of the franchise is up in the air, I am still excited to rank these iconic housewives in order of personal preference.
Without further ado… the Real Housewives of Dallas ranked!
9. Kameron Westcott
Kameron’s whole thing during the show is that she puts on a character when she’s really an intelligent woman behind the mask, but quite frankly I think she is one of the most pretentious women on any Real Housewives franchise ever. You could just tell that everything she said and did was rehearsed and fake and at no point did I ever find myself liking her. Also how is a white woman going to tell an Asian woman she’s racist against Asians and that Chinese food isn’t part of Chinese culture.
8. Kary Brittingham
I feel as if Kary was an addition that didn’t really add much to the show at all, besides being a drunk mess in season five. I had no real connection with her at all during the show, but I can say I was 100% on her side during the season four xenophobic drama.
7. Leeanne Locken
Every franchise has that one Housewife…and if you’re a Real Housewives fan then you know exactly what I’m referring to. Leanne is that Housewife for Dallas. She stirred up all the drama for the seasons she was in, she was the catalyst for most if not all of the fights, and she was that bitch. Which is exactly why she’s near the bottom of this list. Plus the xenophobia of season four… yeah, no.
6. Tiffany Hendra
I really liked Tiffany in season one, and I was kind of confused why she was dropped straight away. I thought she was a straight shooter and wasn’t scared to put up a fight, especially against her own best friend Leeanne. She comes in at sixth for lack of time in getting to know her.
5. Brandi Redmond
Brandi really was the life of RHOD, constantly being featured in storylines and promotional materials. Her big smile and red hair are pretty synonymous with the franchise. Hers and Stephanie’s friendship is without a doubt my favourite friendship in any of the Real Housewives shows. In saying that, her attitude in season five prevents her from going any higher on this list.
4. Cary Deuber
Watching season one, Cary was immediately my favourite. She was sassy, fun, glamorous, and you could just tell that she was super comfortable being herself. Her failed attempt at being the Bone Collector in season three a la Sheree Whitfield of RHOA does stop her from going any higher on this list however. However, homegirl always had some killer taglines.
3. Tiffany Moon
I wanted to start watching RHOD because I had seen so many glowing reviews for Tiffany Moon, saying she made season five and she was a breath of fresh air for the show. And after finishing the show, I can definitely see why fans seem so enamoured with her. She is brilliant, stylish, and so entertaining to watch. I need RHOD to come back just so we can see more Tiffany Moon!
2. Stephanie Hollman
Knowing that I was always going to do a ranking post for RHOD, Stephanie Hollman would’ve ranked at number one had season four and five not happened. I love her and Brandi’s friendship so much, but of the two, Stephanie is way more preferable. She’s unapologetic, funny, and just a great blonde ball of energy, while keeping a Southern Belle charm to herself. She managed to stay out of the drama while not being a total snoozefest which is a rare feat to accomplish.
1. D’Andra Simmons
Obsessed is an understatement. D’Andra Simmons made the entire franchise for me. What I absolutely loved about D’andra was that she was from a classy Dallas dynasty family, but still had the most infectious sense of humour and personality. She wasn’t afraid to be herself even when others seemed to judge her because of her last name, and that will always get brownie points with me. And even though there was a ton of body shaming done to her, I think D’andra is one of the sexiest Real Housewives of any franchise hands down period end of discussion.
Now that I’m thinking about all of the iconic stuff that D’andra has done on the show, I now need her and Tiffany to have their own spin off show to capture all the amazing shit they would do together without having to share the spotlight with other dumbasses
Please and thank you Bravo.
