UNTIL NEXT TIME….
QUEEN….Need i say more? From over the top moments, to iconic quotes, LeeAnne has earned the center star for a second season in a row. She is funny, entertaining, and true to who she really is. LeeAnne is the Queen of Dallas, and that will never change. Her humanitarian efforts and passion for helping others is outstanding.
One of the strongest woman on the cast, Cary handles everything thrown at her about her family like a boss! Her confessionals are wildly entertaining this season, and she has grown so much from season 1. Taking a step back from the OR, Cary has been focusing more time at home with Zuri, making her a true Real Housewife!
Personally I feel Stephanie was the break out star of the season 2. With her friendship with Brandi on the rocks, Stephanie really stepped out gaining her independence on camera. Even after rekindling with her bestie, she remained in the spotlight on her own opening up about the struggles of motherhood. Renovations underway, Travis traded those daily list for trump checks as Stephanie designed her big ole mansion.
Brandi has stepped up her game season 2, as she rightfully earned that second center star. Her journey through the ups and downs of friendship are what drove the season to a dramatic conclusion. Brandi opened up this season about struggling with pregnancy, making her story very relatable by viewers. With Stephanie by her side, the 2 are comedy gold when it comes to Reality TV.
After her debut on Bravo, D’Andra has won us all over with her elegance and class, earning my favorite new housewife of 2017. Unlike many new housewives looking for the quickest endorsement deal, D’Andra had her business empire, prior to Reality TV. D’Andra is an educated, beautiful, strong woman; Making her the perfect Real Housewife! With the keys to the empire, D’Andra is going to take over the beauty community.
Portraying a con as old as hair die, this season we’ve learned that Kameron is much more than your typical blonde. She’s funny, classy, and taking over the doggie community. With the help of little Louie Vuitton Westcott, Kameron has built a name for herself after launching Sparkle Dog. Gaining her independence from Court, Kameron is spreading her pink sparkle across america, one kibble at a time. Watch out LVP, there is a new pink princess in the franchise!
Closing out season 2 i would rank this season as one of the BEST Real Housewives season’s in the franchise. Unlike some cities that get real dark with the storyline, RHOD ladies have managed to keep the drama entertaining, without going to a point of no return. They are funny, glamorous, and stealing the hearts of Bravo fans one episode at a time. I think what sets RHOD apart from other franchises is the humble cast and relatability to there lives. They deserve extra complimentary for the outstanding effort interacting with fans on social media. As a fan, one of the best parts about watching is being able to interact with the ladies during episodes. Season 3 is a wrap and i couldn’t be more excited for the woman to have another chance to keep us entertained. Below is my Real Housewives Awards for season 2 of RHOD. until next time…
OSCARS BY BRAVO…
