I live in Washington (state).  I adore my Dooneys. 

Never once have I put a raincoat on one.

I do, however, believe the front passenger seat in my car is reserved for my Dooney and am annoyed when someone sits there and my purse goes to the back seat.

Aren’t those Birkins about $15k?

leeann is a b about Brandi’s clothing line. I like Brandi’s line better than Leeann’s dress with 175 detachable sleeves, skirts, capes, etc.

If I lived in Stephanie's house, I don't think I'd ever leave the bathroom.

That being said, not sure I'd want to hang out with a skinny, scary-smile guy with a pet kangaroo in there. 

I am oddly really digging the Stephanie-LeeAnne friendship. 

Kameron and LeeAnne are visionaries, y'all. Maybe they can collaborate on doggy clothes you can wear 349 different ways. 

I'm beginning to think the Redmonds are a cult. No non-gingers allowed. 

Of COURSE Cary has a raincoat for her purse. 

 

Okay, my thoughts on the different tiffs going on:

Cary and Kam - I'm loathe to defend Cary; I've never really been a fan of hers. And I know she does stir the pot at times. But I really don't think she was doing that at Beaver Creek. I think she genuinely was trying to be empathetic and help both Kam and Brandi move forward. 

Cary and Brandi - in this case, I again don't feel Cary was being intentionally malicious I think she just wanted Kam off her back. But I do feel for Brandi. She was basically used by her friend. And I get being sick of always being the black sheep. Cary's apology didn't work for me. She was very shoulder-shrug/oh-well about it. 

Deanndra and LeeAnn - D'Andra is not willing to give any grace, is she? I really don't think LeeAnn was trying to spread dirt about her friend. I think she was just worried about her. D'Andra's strong reaction speaks for itself. 

 

I gotta say, I'm loving this season. It's so fun and snark worthy. Many of the friendships are real, so the fights are pretty real as well. It just all works.

Well, I'm just team Cary.  Maybe cause I just can't stand Kam.  Don't point your finger at me.  Well, ok.  Then she points her finger at Cary.  Yep Cary.  Apparently it's ok to point low but not ok to point high.  On another note, Kam is just delusional with her pink dog food.  I have a female dog.  I don't give a rap what color her dog food is.

Sorry Brandi.  You brought that gag gift for Kam.  So now you're all bent out of shape because 'you' decided on your own not to give it to Kam?  Please.

I love Steph's house porn.  It may not be 'my' taste but I love me some house porn.  I'm looking forward to Cary's finished home.   Gotta love that she showed up for the spa party in her scrubs.

The look on D'Andra's face when Cary was doing the ostentatious 'I've got to get my GRRRL into a raincoat, it's a KELLY and this is a BIRKIN'. D'Andra didn't do a double take, but she did an eyebrow lift and lip purse that just read 'are you SHITTN' me?!'. Priceless. Like Cary's bag, no doubt.

Sparkle Cam giving business advice to all of us and LeeAnn over her 'unique' and 'adventurous' product? Take a seat, ma'am. We'll all be happy to eat our words in 2 years, but I can't see either product taking off. 

Thank you Brandy Redmond for not putting us through another SL a la Dorit/Sonja/Kyle 'howife develops fashion line'. So happy that we were unaware and now just seeing the product getting sold. That's all I need. Unless it's anything Sheree does. Or a toaster oven. Those fails were funny, but Dorit's whole Beverly Beach swimwear atrocity is still too recent. And they are getting sued. Again.

Not a fan of Cary but I'll side with her when Insufferable Twat Kameron decides to pick a fight out of the blue.  That being said, Cary's "persona" this year is going to get her in trouble eventually. (If not I'll be super disappointed :)

D'Andra's a total bitch - she managed to lay low this week, but previews show her ugly flag waving.  And her quavering "I worry about Kameron's opinion" was it for me anyway.  Really?  Kameron's opinion?  Really?  Talk about medium-sized fish in a small pond.  And their stupid, dumb-baby talking wives.  Sheesh.

Right?  Maybe I just don't get it because I'm not from Dallas or their social scene, but why would anyone care about Kam's opinion?  She's a numbskull.  I get that her husband's family has a lot of money, but she's the visionary behind Sparkle Dog.

Brandi's line has some cute pieces and the most expensive thing I saw on her site was $90.  I think she could do well with it.  

LeAnne's talking heads this episode were not as funny as she was hoping and they just made her seem like a bitter killjoy (and not the fun space bounty hunter kind).  

I loved Stephanie's spa day hair and I want a baby kangaroo -- but probably not a grown-up kangaroo, so I'll just continue to lead the kangaroo-less life.  

I loved that they flashed back to Cary telling everyone that she doesn't keep secrets and will turn right around and tell whomever you were talking shit about.  She's so up front about it that even though she's pushing the drama along she's not really pot stirring because she's not being a sneak.  I can understand her wanting Kam to just shut up, but she did kind of throw Brandi under the bus on that one.

Brandi was pissed not because Cary was taking credit for Brandi making a decision, but because Cary was doing SOMETHING at that moment that Brandi could sense was disingenuous. Brandi knew what happened at the time and she knew when Cary brought it up that she was using this incident in some way to slither out of something else. And she was. She had the Jolly Pink Giant going all badger on her again. What began as an off hand comment 'I TOTALLY have your back, grrrrrrrl!!', and then recount of what got left in Brandi's bag of tricks, ended up with Cary needing receipts and basically needing Brandi to kind of lie for her to get them. That's what I saw. She put Brandi in an uncomfortable position where she could  have ended up with the wrath of Kam again and possibly falling out with Cary also. Not cool, Cary.

I don’t understand what Brandi thought she had to “clear” up. Obviously Kam and Cary had beef and if cary saying she squashed your giving Kam that stupid gift then let her have it. Kam wasn’t upset why was Brandi making a big deal about it. Ugh she’s so stupid she needs to go eat her crackers while whispering in the corner.

I love D’Andra normally but what does she want Leanne to do? Pop a vein, she’s apologized several times and she’s explained her intent (I’m not sure she’s telling the truth but that’s another story). If  you have more than $200 then why is this bothering you so much?

All I could think watching D'Andra wobble through (another!) explanation about her bank accounts to Kameron, because she cares what she thinks so much, is: Girl, never apologise, never explain. Especially in this situation. D'Andra seems socially or emotionally stunted sometimes

Kameron's earrings! When she was talking to her husband about the GLOBBLE PeddEXpo, she had these things on that looked like one of her kids craft projects. To me they literally looked like those little foam balls from the craft shop that you can roll in glitter and glue to make tree ornaments. She had 3 or 4 in descending size hanging from her earlobes. Fair enough. Then they showed her TH with the condom earrings and I thought 'anal beads'. She's talking to Kourtt about being an entrepeneur with butt beads dangling from her head. i wonder if Kameron needs to be rescued? is she sending us some kind of SOS?

YES! D'Andra is in crisis and unable to keep up that cool, don't-care-what-anyone-thinks persona that I (foolishly) bought into last year. It's possible to act like you aren't desperately in need of Dallas society approval when it's a given, I guess. But when you perceive you could lose it? DON'T MAKE ME LAUGH! I HAVE 3 - NO, MAKE THAT 5 - GOLD-BACKED BANK ACCOUNTS AND A TRUST FUND AND A FAMILY NAME. That side-eye at Cary with the Birkin raincoat was kinda sad, too, because D'Andra is really objecting to the showy display of wealth...and you kinda lose that "rich people don't talk about money" thing when your whole storyline is about defending your wealth. Kam's opinion is the most important, though? Bitch lost me forever. Now I suspect she's so close to LeeAnne because she can feel superior and like she's a friend to The Poor.

I don't think it would have really bothered Brandi if she hadn't been branded "the bad influence" lately. She's also juggling a lot and not sleeping much. That can make one extra sensitive. I thought Cary could have done more to make her feel better about the whole thing.

Something else I don't get, when they showed the playback of the conversation, Cary clearly suggested not to show the gag gift to Kam. Clearly she advised her not to do it. She wasn't lying about that.  So why is Brandi all butt hurt with Cary? 

Also, Cary was explaining to Kam that maybe she should tone down her accusations about what Stephanie said. She was telling her why she comes off as confrontational to others. Again, what was the problem with that? Both Kam and Brandi were being ridiculous. 

I don't see any problems except that BRAVO is desperately trying to hard to have these ladies start shit with each other.

Because Cary was trying to make it like Brandi was dead set on embarrassing dog food barbie and was gonna make a big deal out of the balls and SHOW that she is a bad influence... yes Cary suggested to Brandi not do it and Brandi didn't but the way Carey was making it sound was totally different then what happened (I got your back girl...No she doesn't! She was just trying to save her ass by throwing Brandi under the bus by bringing up something that had zero to do with anything but making Brandi the bad guy and Cary the best friend that was looking out for her) Cary might have told the girls that she doesn't keep secrets but at the end of the day its gonna backfire on her no one is gonna want to be friends with her cause she has Zero loyalty to anyone and thats not being a friend thats riding a fence .. Brandi at this point in the show is trying to avoid all conflict really because she doesn't want ANYTHING fucking with her getting to keep Brune....

Not to besmirch your Dooneys, but Hermes bags are like 1000x the price.  I don't like the Birkin, but if I had one, I may wrap it up in the rain too.  Actually maybe not, I treat my bags terribly, even my expensive ones.  I am a bad bag owner!

Kameron is an immature, emotionally stunted, spoiled rich girl. Her husband has to treat her like a child because she acts like one. Please believe, if she criticized me for talking with my hands and pointing a finger at her, she would be “redirected “ to the point of the conversation. 

Having a new baby in the house IS stressful but Brandi seems like she is upset about something else. 

Kangaroo dude was super creepy. 

Stephanie should have had spa gift bags made up for her guests- slippers, robes, and maybe the Deuber could have kicked in some facial products....haha!

Aside from the challenges of having a newborn baby, I think Brandi has the added pressure of the adoption process where she has strangers coming into her home to judge her and her abilities as a parent. I don't think it's a coincidence that she's suddenly caring so much about what the women are saying about her. I think every negative thing said about her triggers an insecurity and fear that it may result in her losing her baby. Cary wasn't wrong in saying that she told Brandi that her prank wasn't a good idea, but Cary presented it as though she had to convince Brandi not to do it and she is the sole reason why Brandi didn't go through with it.

I'm annoyed that Kameron constantly portrays her husband has having an issue with her working and breaking tradition of the woman staying home when her husband has listened to her stupid pink food idea and has even put money into her business. Everything I see suggests to me that her husband isn't opposed to her working or building a business, he just doesn't believe in her business concept and probably is less enthused by her wanting to use his business connections sink money into something that he just doesn't see as being a great idea. Also, Cary was absolutely right to call Stephanie over. Kameron was making an accusation that Cary was on her side and then after speaking with Stephanie, she changed her tune - which in turn inferred that Stephanie said something that would have caused that to happen. How doesn't it make sense to have Stephanie there to say what the conversation was?

I personally liked Brandi's clothing line. While I liked the first fitting I saw of LeeAnne's multi-style dress, I didn't like the black and red combination that was shown during the photoshoot because my initial reaction was 'Halloween costume', lol. I don't know why but it just seemed very 'witchy' to me. Now if the red was more like a cape than a sleeve, I think I would have liked it better. There was just something that didn't vibe well with me.

Am I the only one who is scared that her daughters are going against her having this adoption going through? Although honest,  they doesn’t seem to care about having the baby in their house taking attention and time away from them. I see them as brats some of the time. They talk back and march to their own drummers. I don’t think that this reflects well on Brandi. That she might have control issues with the kids running the house instead of her running her home. I’m sure that Brandi can provide a good life for the Bruin as well as a great education. Lol...he will be spoiled rotten.

they were all wearing the same robe, so maybe she did have gift bags.  I can't see her NOT doing it.  Unless they mentioned that they weren't there, in which case, I plead ignorance, last night's show was a snoozer and I was on my phone half the time anyway. :)

I laughed so hard at the long pause and "da fuq" face Cary gave in response to Kameron's chastisement. She is really out of her depth with some of these women.

I didn't like anything in Brandi's clothing line. 

Excusemewaitasec, Cary did say "No, that's not a good idea". Not vehemently or anything, but she did say it.

If Sparkle Dog fails, Courtt can write off his investment on his taxes.  I know someone whose husband financed a store for her that sold British food and she was always looking for ways to spend money because it was supposed to be a tax write-off. When the store became profitable anyway, she closed it. 

I wish people wouldn't shriek around animals. That poor little Joey. 

Brandi shouldn't worry about the adoption getting approved because it's probably a foregone conclusion even though her own kids bad-mouthed her. 

I don't think Leanne bought anything at Brandi's pop up - and good for her for not bowing to the pressure to buy something she didn't like or want.  

Cary and her raincoat for her handbag was lame. If it's that delicate, leave it at home during inclement weather. 

I agree with RedInk - D'Andra is friends with Leanne because she can feel financially and socially superior with the bonus of believing she's magnanimous being friends with someone who's poor by comparison.  

Stephanie's bathroom is both gorgeous and ridiculous. Does anyone really spend that much time lounging around in their bathroom? She's trying to be nicer this season, but her baby voice still grates.

And again, Leeanne misuses words -- that dress can't be worn in infinite ways -- infinite means no limit.  If you can count it, it's not infinite.  (She's bad with "literally" too.)  And the dress isn't all that original.   Are Weekenders still a thing?  Weekenders are simple pants, skirts, dresses, jackets, and blouses in just a few coordinating colors -- mix and match, very basic but with possibilities.  Knit fabric, so the clothing can be packed without fear of wrinkles. 

I did like some of Leeanne's dresses, but putting one colored sleeve on a dress and calling it Look #83 is just lame.

Didn't care for Stephanie one-upping Kam with the monogram on the robes.  It was okay that she did it, she just shouldn't have bragged about it.

Table for 2!  Except I do think Brandi has a few cute items.  It's not my personal taste, but I thought it was cute for her target audience.  

Kam grows on me every week.  Yes she induces eye rolls from me, but is beginning to make me laugh more than groan. And yes.  It was completely hypocritical about the finger pointing, but I just thought it was hilarious also Jel!

Oh Brandi.  I'm trying really hard to find the charm in you that so many see.  But so far nope.  If I can like Stephanie, anything is possible. 

I'm tired of someone who had zero effs to give and BEHAVING like there is no effs to give, suddenly trying to make me feel bad because people are stating she's a bad influence.  No.

First, Kam has every right to give you bad influence side eye.  You chased her on a beach with a sex toy, even though she told you no, stop it, repeatedly. And?  You've never acknowledged that, shown any remorse OR consideration for Kam.

Oh no.  Instead it's all about removing the stick from Kam's rear (and yes. Sometimes I think that about Kam too.  But not on the beach/dildo attack).   Like somehow you're bring comfortable around sex toys means everyone should be comfortable around sex toys. 

And Brandi is as judgmental as anyone else.  Because if you don't want to go to a charity event with poop as an accessory, or drink Jesus Juice any time of the day or get chased around on a beach with a dildo, why you have a stick up your butt and need to loosen up.

Why would she even THINK about giving Kam stresstesticles after the reaction on the beach?  Why would she even entertain the thought?

Brandi's BIG ISSUE:  Remember last season when there were snipey comments from Kameron about living in a certain suburb/s? D'Andra and Kam were there and Stephanie moved there too when Travis decided the lustre of living on the final hole of the golf course wore off (sad 'Brah!') and found a place with a pool in the living room (happy 'Brah')? Brandi doesn't live in this old rich neighbourhood. Plus, we started getting comments from Kam about Brandi being offensive and low class. Class is the word with Brandi. She is really sensitive about being made to feel like one of the Mud People aka The Poor and a 'bad person'. Brandi wearing that dog shit hat in season 1 to the charity event  was her expressing her disdain for Society. She and Stephanie both come from similar backgrounds and though Stephanie always has Brandi's back and urges her on in her own way, Stephanie does not have the personality Brandi has. I think Steph admires Brandi's spirit, because she'd never dare to behave the way Brandi does. Now that Bruin has come along and she's getting no sleep, everything is raw and amplified with Brandi. She IS I think genuinely worried that the opinions of morons like Kam may actually affect her in her vulnerability.

So Brandi's Big Issue is class. Women from the class D'Andra and Kameron come from, the old money names, look down their noses at people like Brandi and Steph. They only associate with them because of their husband's $$$$$. The charity world, and feeding those $$$$ into it, is the only time that Old money society overlaps with New money society and potentially, if your family's money keeps coming and you behave yourself and get seen in the right clothes (Stephanie), you may one day be accepted into their rarefied bubble. Most of us, like Brandi, to use Dee Simmons words, couldn't 'give a rip' about kowtowing to this BS. I think Brandi has been checked by Bryan possibly as well. Maybe not. Perhaps he's always off round the country building marinas to make the world a better place and hooking up with Travis when he can get away from Dallas, to really care. Brandi has kind of called BS on Dallas society and now she's kind of stuck alone at their mercy at this difficult time. I feel sorry for her. I think she's down to earth and sweet and can really have a good time. I love watching her and Steph together. 

Basically, Brandi believes being a good person and friend is enough. It's not enough in some circles, when it should be.

Everything I see suggests to me that her husband isn't opposed to her working or building a business, he just doesn't believe in her business concept and probably is less enthused by her wanting to use his business connections sink money into something that he just doesn't see as being a great idea. Also, Cary was absolutely right to call Stephanie over. Kameron was making an accusation that Cary was on her side and then after speaking with Stephanie, she changed her tune - which in turn inferred that Stephanie said something that would have caused that to happen. How doesn't it make sense to have Stephanie there to say what the conversation was?

I personally liked Brandi's clothing line. While I liked the first fitting I saw of LeeAnne's multi-style dress, I didn't like the black and red combination that was shown during the photoshoot because my initial reaction was 'Halloween costume', lol. I don't know why but it just seemed very 'witchy' to me. Now if the red was more like a cape than a sleeve, I think I would have liked it better. There was just something that didn't vibe well with me.

Just my opinion but I believe if cary hadn’t told Brandi the gift was a bad idea that Brandi would have absolutely given Kam that idiotic gift.

if you’re worried that your behavior on a tv show might impact your adoption process then don’t act a fool on said tv show. 

Just one person’s opinion.

My jaw literally dropped the first time I looked a Birkin up.  I thought I was bad spending what I spend and I only buy from the clearance site and the biannual sale.  But I am addicted to Dooneys color choices and various styles.

Table for 2!  Except I do think Brandi has a few cute items.  It's not my personal taste, but I thought it was cute for her target audience.  

Kam grows on me every week.  Yes she induces eye rolls from me, but is beginning to make me laugh more than groan. And yes.  It was completely hypocritical about the finger pointing, but I just thought it was hilarious also Jel!

Oh Brandi.  I'm trying really hard to find the charm in you that so many see.  But so far nope.  If I can like Stephanie, anything is possible. 

I'm tired of someone who had zero effs to give and BEHAVING like there is no effs to give, suddenly trying to make me feel bad because people are stating she's a bad influence.  No.

First, Kam has every right to give you bad influence side eye.  You chased her on a beach with a sex toy, even though she told you no, stop it, repeatedly. And?  You've never acknowledged that, shown any remorse OR consideration for Kam.

Oh no.  Instead it's all about removing the stick from Kam's rear (and yes. Sometimes I think that about Kam too.  But not on the beach/dildo attack).   Like somehow you're bring comfortable around sex toys means everyone should be comfortable around sex toys. 

And Brandi is as judgmental as anyone else.  Because if you don't want to go to a charity event with poop as an accessory, or drink Jesus Juice any time of the day or get chased around on a beach with a dildo, why you have a stick up your butt and need to loosen up.

Why would she even THINK about giving Kam stresstesticles after the reaction on the beach?  Why would she even entertain the thought?

I’ll join you at that table... and then there were three.

I frequently find Brandi’s look scary but I thought that she looked lovely at her pop up and the clothes were cute. I would wear some of them, I would not wear LeeAnns dress.

Aren’t those Birkins about $15k?

I didn't freeze-frame it, but it looked like a Birkin croc.  So, closer to $100,000.

They all need to stop saying guuuuuurl.

Kam - dare to be different!!! LMAO It was nice of her to compliment Brandi’s hard work but as Cary says “she’s nuts.” 

Damn D’Andra’s shit talking on Leann in her talking heads, ouch. She really thinks Leann is beneath her. Leann groveling to her in the store is sad. D’Andra caring about what Kam thinks is barf-worthy.

So Kam is upset that Cary is better friends with Steph and Brandi than her because she didn’t help her in Mexico last year? Cary is correct that Kam never lets things go. 

Brandi is way overreacting but her reaction makes more sense in the context of all that is going on with her.

I like that Cary showed up to spa day in Dansko nurse shoes. What she said about the Kangaroo guy was true but mean. 

As annoying as I find Kam, I think I like Court a whole lot less.

I grew up in Dallas, and I still live in another part of Texas, but I'm in Dallas a lot because I still have family there.  I grew up in the 70's, so I've "known" Dallas through the decades.

I've never once heard of any of these people:  the Westcotts, Dee Simmons (or her company), Cary's husband (the "well-known" plastic surgeon), The Hollman company, etc.

So they're not as "famous" as BravoTV would have us believe.

That being said, I'm here for every minute of it.

Here's what I admit:  I admit that I've already looked up Mama Dee's house, and D'Andra's house.  Both are in the very exclusive Highland Park, and each is worth >$2.5 million.  D'Andra's house is owned by the trust that Mama Dee controls.  And yes, next time I'm visiting family, I'll be doing a drive-by, y'all.

I haven't been watching because last season I felt like I lost brain cells when viewing these particular women (no, it's not Dallas - I have family in Dallas, I've lived in TX, and I love TX). But for this group, there's no "there" there.

However, hoping to engage in some light-hearted snark after yesterday's politics, I recorded this episode. I just have to say that Cary's very heavy makeup in her TH made me think of this:

Am I the only one who is scared that her daughters are going against her having this adoption going through? Although honest,  they doesn’t seem to care about having the baby in their house taking attention and time away from them. I see them as brats some of the time. They talk back and march to their own drummers. I don’t think that this reflects well on Brandi. That she might have control issues with the kids running the house instead of her running her home. I’m sure that Brandi can provide a good life for the Bruin as well as a great education. Lol...he will be spoiled rotten. 

I agree that her daughters may come across a bit bratty at times but realistically, many children act the same way when their parents bring home a biological sibling so I'm sure the adoption people realized that no matter whether it's by DNA or not, young children may take some time to adapt to having a baby in the home and losing some of the attention that was previously on them. I don't think they are a genuine threat to the adoption process but I think because Brandi is worried about it, she's overthinking all of it.

I agree but listening to someone's advice and taking it into consideration when making your own decision is not the same as someone who has to convince you not to do something. The former suggests that someone can be rational and open-minded. The latter (which is what Cary portrayed the situation as) suggests someone who is incapable of making good decisions and therefore must be micromanaged and forced to behave appropriately. That difference right there is what Brandi took offense to. 

And I agree, probably not a smart idea to play out an adoption process in front of cameras for a TV show, especially when you've already had 2 years of experience to know how the game is played. She wasn't going to be spared just because she's adopting a child and if she was that worried about the adoption process, she should have known better than to let it play out on camera.

Yes. It's not that Cary didn't say anything about the gag gift. But the WAY she relayed it made it sound like she dove in front of a bomb and if she hadn't done something, Brandi would have given the gift. 

I think Brandi KNOWS she's crass and OTT. I think what bothers her is the idea that she's MAKING others act that way as well. Kameron, especially, commented that D'andra with the k-cup was influenced by Brandi. And Brandi took umbrage. I would too. She's not a cult leader or anything. When LeeAnn drags her hair across the bar floor, that's on her.

But she was too busy to bend down and get gum...please tell me she was not reaching for the gum stuck to the floor, lol.

Court has someone on the side, he would have to just for sanity's sake have someone to have a normal conversation. Kam's affect is so odd, it is like she is acting in a school play.

Ha....agreed!   She looks like a skinny drag queen.  Like Mr. Kangaroo-boy, if we held him down and molded his hair into a mullet and spray-painted his face with a makeup gun.
