It seems everything is bigger in Dallas, and that includes the drama on Real Housewives of Dallas, where the women drink their “Jesus Juice (wine to the rest of us)” with ice cubes in a to-go cup with a big straw and have way too much time on their hands. One woman grew up a carnival kid, born to a teenaged mother, and another was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, also born to a 15-year-old mother. Fans understand the theme that they even do things younger in Dallas.
According to the Inquisitr, the Real Housewives franchise has a history of scandals, including infidelity and divorce, but the biggest so far is the Giudice scandal, where both Teresa and Joe Giudice have done time in jail for getting a bit too greedy. Teresa Giudice has finished serving her time, and Joe Giudice has just started serving his time. But when it comes to Real Housewives, there is always room for more scandal.
Radar Online is reporting that what fans have seen so far on Real Housewives of Dallas is scandalous, but the secrets the women are keeping are even more so. Dallas cast member Tiffany Hendra allegedly has a porn star past that she doesn’t mention when it comes to her talking about her “Hollywood days.” Hendra not only participated in the films, but starred in several X-rated movies, including Singapore Sling, 12 Hot Women, and the Cinemax series Black Tie Nights. Hendra insists that adult actress is a label she refuses to take on now that she is on Real Housewives of Dallas.
Hendra explains that all of this acting out came as a result of being sexually abused as a child in Dallas, which sparked a number of bad choices.
“I started drugs and I was very promiscuous. Everything was based out of fear.”
Real Housewives of Dallas cast member Stephanie Hollman might seem innocent, but her husband, Travis, has a rocky past, mostly involving substance abuse. Travis Hollman got a DUI while going 87 mph while in a 55 mph zone, according to the report.
“[The defendant] did unlawfully drive a motor vehicle on a public highway and premises open to the public while under the influence of intoxicants, intoxicating liquor.”
Following his arrest, he refused to take a Breathalyzer.
RHOD LeeAnne Locken claims she has been a carnival business woman since the age of 3, when she started working the carnival circuit.
“I worked for my mom and then other people. When I was 11 I bought my own game and I had adults working for me.”
Locken says a lot of bad things happened to her, living that life, but with therapy, she has come to figure out who she is “as a human.”
When Locken puts on her fundraising airs as her self titled Queen of Dallas, the women are quick to remind her that she is not a socialite, but a grown up carnival kid. Locken particularly seems to take pleasure in going after the younger Dallas women to keep them in line, mean-girl style, while sucking up to the older Dallas doyennes.
Vulture explains that the women of Real Housewives of Dallas don’t need much encouragement to get wild, and take it to a new level. The two younger women of Dallas have parent-child relationships with their husbands, who present them money and to-do lists before they leave town on business, and chastise them later for making bad choices with their free time, like going to strip clubs and getting on stage with the dancers. But at least a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader can truly dance with strippers, and they joked that they should offer her a job.
Vulture explains that Stephanie Hollman’s husband Travis is “mean,” and Tiffany Hendra’s husband, they call a “low budget Keith Urban,” as he is Australian, and does country music, as a recent transplant to Dallas. Brandi’s husband, Bryan, has essentially put her in time out for going to the strip club, while LeeAnne’s live-in simply won’t marry her, much to her disappointment.
So much drama on Real Housewives of Dallas, so little time.
