1. I thought this season of The Real Housewives of Dallas was pretty boring, tbh. I’ve read around the internet a couple of reasons why that might be; the one that makes the most sense is that this was supposed to be a show about Charity and it was decided after* filming to make it a RH show. (*I don’t believe this was changedafterfilming – maybe during, but not after – because of the Austin trip. I just don’t believe it would have happened if not in a RH format.) That all being said, the reunion was really entertaining. Maybe not in a good way, but entertaining all the same.

 

  1. Am I the only one who doesn’t understand why the lists Travis gives Stephanie is such a big deal? My husband works as a stay-at-home father. Sometimes I ask him to do favors for me while I am at work, such as pick up my prescriptions. I do this so I can get home faster to be with my family rather than running errands – and I usually take over child duty so my husband appreciates this and happily obliges. My husband sometimes forgets so I text him what I need help with. Is that not the same as a list? I guess the difference, and therefore the problem, is that Stephanie doesn’t like it. I don’t know. It just wasn’t as outrageous to me as it was to everyone else watching. Maybe that’s because I’m a Type-A Travis. Either way, I’d much rather talk about his fur collection.

  1. It is outrageous that a Christian school would kick out Brandi’s children because she says things like Jesus Juice and poop. I hope Bryan was mad at the school and not her. I sure would be. Can we start an internet outrage group where we tell them the true Christian thing to do would be to try to help the children if theytrulybelieved what their mother was doing was wrong? (I italicized truly because I have such a hard time believing that’s why a Christian school would behave so poorly. I am a Christian and I must believe there’s another reason…I can’t get my head around their reason.) Shenanigans. Shenanigans, I say.

 

  1. I am so bored with the ‘shocking’ history of Tiffany’s “porn” roles. First, it wasn’t porn. However, that’s very much beside the point. Tiffany is a grown woman and she can do whatever she chooses to do. I don’t like Tiffany much and she’s really boring but this is not a point of contention for me. I don’t care at all and I don’t understand why anyone else does either. If you don’t like showing boobies, don’t show yours. Mind your business other than that.

 

  1. To that effect, I felt really sorry for Cary that LeeAnne never confronted her with the so-called affair during taping. Cary deserved a chance to tell her side of the story during filming. I don’t really feel sorry for the rumor coming out, as super harsh as that sounds. I really wish I did feel badly, but part of the gamble of reality television is that you are sort of making a deal with the devil. You get fame, but it comes at a cost.

 

  1. Despite all that, I do not care if Cary & Mark had an affair. They say they didn’t; fine. However, if they did, it was a long time ago and time heals most wounds. Let’s not punish them for a mistake (if they made one, which I doubt they did) made many years ago. Furthermore, there is nothing wrong with a woman marrying a rich husband. However, any idiot can see Mark and Cary truly love each other. I think his money had something to do with the initial attraction, but that’s not what kept her in the game. I don’t buy for a second that she “hates” it when he spends money on her, though, so I wish she’d drop that charade. Finally, Cary has a brain. She “cuts titties” and that’s legit. It takes a lot of time, energy, sweat, tears, and sleepless nights to EARN that honor. She also helps people. I know she assists in providing a service to those who lost their breasts to cancer. Even if their patients aren’t cancer survivors, Cary is helping to provide a service many women want and it helps these women to feel better about their bodies. More power to Cary and her titty cutting.

 

  1. If being a Charity person isn’t LeeAnne’s real job, what is? I thought she said that was her job during the season, but then she denied it during the reunion and never really said what she does for money. I think she’s lying about that not being her real job, tbh. She said it’s not her job, it’s her passion. Well, what I do for a living is my passion too. It’s also a job.

 

  1. Did anyone else find Andy’s questioning to Mark disrespectful? Oh, so he likes his wife in beautiful clothing he selects for her; therefore, it’s appropriate to ask him if he enjoys wearing women’s clothing? It was such a backwards connection that I found discriminatory or bigoted. Andy went there on WWHL too. I thought Andy was above that. I guess not. I’m finding out a lot about Andy during this season of Wives (mainly he thinks an entire episode devoted to bullying one person and slut-shaming her is the one of the top 5 greatest episodes ever. See again: deal with the devil). BTW, Mark answered the question gracefully.

 

  1. Marie looks bomb in this reunion, right? Like, amazing. Anyway, she said she pays people to do her twitter for her, but then later ON twitter, she said that she, her husband, and one other person runs her “social media” and that she never paid anyone to “take LeeAnne down.” I don’t know. All I know is that I officially offer Marie my social media services at half the price of whatever she’s currently paying.

 

  1. This whole thing about the LeeAnne poop story and who-dun-it (who-told-it) could have all been avoided if LeeAnne had a sense of humor about herself. She and Brandi would probably have been closer than ever and none of that nastiness in Austin would have happened. I agree with LeeAnne that it’s funny if you’re sharing an embarrassing story with friends, but it’s not so funny when someone tries to USE the story to embarrass you. However, if LeeAnne would have just risen above and been the better person, none of this would have happened. I think Marie told the story just based on that guy from A-list Dallas saying so, but I don’t understand Tiffany’s hostility towards Marie. Something’s going on off camera I don’t understand (or really care about). That sort of makes the season though, right? LeeAnne making a big deal about something that turns into a huge fight that could have simply been avoided if LeeAnne had any amount of emotional maturity?

 

  1. Bonus thought: “Your charity world is going to go down the toilet” is the biggest first world insult in the history of time.
