#RHOD Recap: D’Andra’s HonesTea Sends Teacakes Flying!

Posted on Sep 19 2017 - 1:16pm by Dani-K

Hey y’all, we are back with another episode of The Real Housewives of Dallas -which is getting better with each passing week. This week we begin with a reception. LeeAnne is kissing butt like she’s running for office. Kameron and D’Andra also are in attendance to witness LeeAnne’s new calling in life: motivational speaking. Tonight’s speech is about overcoming obstacles. We learn LeeAnne and D’Andra both have abandonment issues from their childhoods, though their childhoods were very different.

Next, we visit Brandi and her unruly children who do not want a baby brother. Maybe Brandi should get a puppy because even she is questioning her ability to handle another child.

Back at the reception, D’Andra is distraught to hear LeeAnne trash-talking Cary with a male attendee. LeeAnne had just finished a speech about wanting to fit in, y’all, but then rips another woman’s character to shreds? D’Andra lets her have it. She says it’s time to cut the crap, so D’Andra will be hosting an honest tea party/group therapy session/cluster fuck of a day.

Next, we join Cary in the kitchen with Mark and Zuri. I hate to be the one to point this out, y’all, but when Zuri grows up she’s going to have daddy issues. Anyway, Kameron and her husband Court stop by to eat some grub. After dinner, Kameron brings up again how rude it was for Brandi to give gifts in front of her and leave her out of the trip to Memphis. Cary says that Brandi just wanted the trip to be about her. Mark is visibly becoming unglued because his daughter, who is four years-old, is acting like a four year-old. Mark offers to put Zuri to bed, but that offer goes over like he’s Pennywise from It. After dinner Mark and Cary get into a fight over including a child at a dinner party. Cary refuses to help clean up. That’ll teach him.

Over at LeeAnne and Rich’s house, they are getting ready to go to the Texas State Fair. Her baby voice is quite annoying, but she’s happy to be going on a date with Rich. You would think being a former carni-kid, this wouldn’t be something LeeAnne would want to do, but she’s the perfect person to have on the midway. A natural ringer. At the balloon game, there’s a special prize. After Rich pops a balloon, he opens the box and shows LeeAnne what’s inside – a diamond ring and a proposal. Finally! Then Big Tex announces that Rich loves LeeAnne. A proposal fit for a carni-kid!

Did you know every debutant knows how to throw a proper tea party? It’s called society 101, y’all. Get this, LeeAnne is not wearing her new engagement ring to the tea. Why? Is it fake? LeeAnne says it’s because she doesn’t want to hear, “When’s the wedding,” and have to reply, “In another eight years.”

Over at Cary’s house, Stephanie and Brandi talk about what a mess this tea party will be. Brandi is worried that it’s going to be another pretentious high society event where she’ll be judged. Finger crossed! LeeAnne’s plan it to drink which is always a great plan, if you ask me. D’Andra says she wants to create a safe environment where the ladies won’t be afraid of LeeAnne. Good luck with that.

All the ladies have arrived and are wearing fascinators or hats, though Brandi has broken proper tea code by showing cleavage. Trying to redeem herself, Brandi has brought Kameron a pink sparkly gift — it’s a bottle of Jack Daniels. Kameron then points out it was rude of Brandi to give her gift in front of the other women who didn’t get one. Ugh, woman! Brandi commits yet another party foul by dropping the F bomb.

D’Andra goes over the rules. If you hear the bell or gavel you need to shut the eff up. Cards are passed out for the women to write questions and place them in the tea pot. First question: Why is LeeAnne not invited inside Brandi’s house? Brandi says it’s because of her potty mouth. Kameron brings up that it was also rude of Brandi not to bring LeeAnne to Memphis. Kameron and Brandi go at it, but ironically Kameron does it without using a potty mouth. Brandi says she’s out of there, but since she rode in a limo with Stephanie and Cary, she’s a trapped rat and returns.

Th next question is for Brandi: Why do you act like you like LeeAnne when you say you don’t. This question is from Cary who claims she worded it wrong. Umm, yeah. You sound like a jealous girlfriend. Brandi explains this guy at the doggy costume event told her LeeAnne was using her, and he also said Mark was 100% gay. Which is definitely an exaggeration. Mark is only 75% gay. LeeAnne denies saying any of this.

Next question from Brandi: Did LeeAnne have her face threaded by a vagina doctor? Sigh. LeeAnne says no, but admits she will be having her boobs redone by him. Cary calls LeeAnne a “lay person” for not understanding that he’s not board certified in plastic surgery. LeeAnne and Cary get into it over who is the condescending bitch. It’s a tie! But D’Andra rings the bell when LeeAnne calls Cary a C-U-Next-Tuesday. Now Cary wants to leave. And so do I.

Another question, this one is to Stephanie: How could she not kick LeeAnne out of her Halloween party for dressing as two-faced Stephanie? Stephanie explains it was because that’s what LeeAnne wanted so she could play the victim. This way Stephanie gets to play the victim. LeeAnne turns on the tears because she says she listened to Brandi cry over Stephanie – and plus her own mom didn’t want her – which has nothing to do with this. D’Andra is rolling her eyes while Brandi cuddles with LeeAnne on the couch and calls her, baby, in her baby voice. It’s very awkward mostly because Cary won’t move and let them have their moment.

The final question was submitted by Kameron: Where is your favorite vacation place? She did it to break the tension, but Cary thinks this means they should plan a trip to Mexico so she can get away from Mark again. Ay caramba! Someone’s going to wind up in a Mexican jail. Fingers crossed.

Tune in next time when LeeAnne goes off the deep end and threatens Cary with her hands that aren’t knives.

    I’m still an episode behind, so I’ll just observe:-) But I must say, this one is actually growing on me; I think there’s potential here.

  • Wicked Cupcake

    Cute recap, especially the nod to Pennywise.

    The proposal was cute. I mean it was very fitting for a Texas carny girl. I hope the dude is sincere and this wasn’t a Bravo encouraged proposal.

    Brandi is a classless troll. She is a pot stirring, little user. She also looks like she woukd smell of vomity booze breath and sweat, covered up by Bath and Bodyworks body spray.

    Maybe Cary’s hubby and Eddums (O.C) can hook up on the dl sometime.

    • Dani-K

      OMG I just saw the movie It. Pennywise is so scary, but my heart kind of preferred the movie that starred John Ritter. Have you seen that one? Anyway, thanks for reading, Cupcake.

      • Wicked Cupcake

        Yes. I am an oldie and saw the “It” Mini-series when it was on tv. Tim Curry was excellent as Pennywise but Bill Skarsgard did a great job in the new movie.

        Love your recaps. They are full of humor and great observations.

        • Elias Wedway

          Thank you, I remember watching the It series on TV also. My friend was trying to tell me I was mistaken and was just thinking about the book. I went through a Stephen King phase and read every word the man wrote, however I still remember some of the scenes from that movie quite vividly.

          • Wicked Cupcake

            Oh gosh yes. “It” was a mini series. Tim Curry and Richard Thomas, Tim Reid and a host of others were in the mini series, which was quite the big deal back in the day.

    • chacha1

      I totally agree, I hate that drunk ahole Brandi and her husband hates her also, he is very ugly like her, and of course last week didn’t Brandi have to say “Jesus Juice” again when she got to her grandpappy’s house in the trailer park where she grew up and still belongs there

      • Wicked Cupcake

        I didn’t despise her last season but this season I absolutely cannot stand her.

  • GirlPlz

    Did everyone catch Leanne’s comments in the preview for next week. Psychotic bitch
    i wonder if her health scare is caused by not properly researching her choice of plastic surgery. She is very foolish to dismiss the health advice from Cary

    • Karoline

      Leeanne is legit crazy!

      • GirlPlz

        Crazy psycho killer in a movie crazy

        • Karoline

          Snapped crazy!

    • Dani-K

      People say the darndest things coming out of anesthesia. And the reason the housewives are always doing vaj rejuvs, vasectomies, breast lifts, reductions and what not on film is because they (most likely) get it for free. So why have someone who’s not legit operate on you?

      • GirlPlz

        I burst out laughing.

  • GirlPlz

    This show was just as bad as RHOC. Kremlin (legally blonde) is making drama too. Her drama with Brandi is petty. Brandi is bad, she went just as bad. The whole episode was bad. I only like D’Andria so far.

    • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

      The way Kameron came in ready to attack someone leads me to believe she’s trying to take the focus off her own miserable life. I smell trouble.

      • GirlPlz

        I thought she was going to be Ms Etiquette

  • Karoline

    Mark is a complete ass. It looks like all the birkens won’t hide that fact for Carey much longer.

  • Jennymckitty

    My heart brakes for Zuri. Mark resents her like hell and sees her as competition for Cary’s attention. Every time Cary pays attention to Zuri, Mark grimaces. He couldn’t be in the same room and be more distant. I don’t know how Cary can stand him.
    Can anyone tell me how LeeAnne came from carni-kid to running with socialites? What does she do for a living…or how does she get her money? I just started watching this year so I don’t know her backstory.

    • Wicked Cupcake

      Mark is gross and controlling. I agree about him resenting his own child. He was even put out over Cary having a pony ride for the kid’s birthday.

      I watched last season and have no idea how she went from carny kid to hanging with socialites. I am not sure it was ever addressed. If it was, I spaced it off.

      • chacha1

        how about the first episode this season when Cary was doing that spaghetti Bambi thing with her little girl and Mark said “Really?” and looked at them in disgust …..

        • Elizabeth Fisher

          I guess I “get” Mark. It sounds like he didn’t really want to have another child, being as his children from his first marriage are in their teens and practically off to college but he caved to Cary’s wishes. He is going to be 50-years-old next month. He’s at that point in his life where he wants to travel, etc. etc. and do whatever successful 50-year-old men do – not going to dance recitals and PTA meetings.

          • chacha1

            what does he do for a living ?

          • Elizabeth Fisher

            What does who do for a living?

          • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

            Plastic surgeon.

          • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

            Guess he shouldn’t have dumped his same age wife for a younger model.

        • Wicked Cupcake

          I know! What a douche bag he is. I am not a kid lover, but even I thought it was kinda cute Cary did that with her little.

    • Dani-K

      I’m not sure we know. LeeAnne says it was because of her dedication to charity work, but that just means to us, brown-nosing with the socialites. She did mention last year that she doesn’t pay for the gowns she wears to the galas because she is walking advertisement for designers. And I do not recall if she graduated from college or where she went. Or any real jobs she’s had in the past. Sorry Jenny, as I reread this I realize it’s been no help at all.

      • GirlPlz

        I don’t want to her her carnival backstory anymore. She uses it an excuse. She needs to grow up. She is incredibly manipulative and uses her “poor me, I’m an abandoned child” stay so she can get away with her behavior and evoke sympathy. She preys on suckers. You get to use your childhood up to a point. After 40, no m’am.

        • Jennymckitty

          She didn’t even use it as an excuse, she just started crying over it so she wouldn’t have to try to come up with an excuse, D’Andra and I had the same reaction, When she gave her motivational speech and completely FF’d over how she came from a carni to Dallas socialite it made me think,,, the juiciest story was what she left out.

      • Jennymckitty

        I love a good mystery. After I drop my son off at his bus stop, I’m putting on my FBI cap and start my investigation. I’ll let you know if I find out anything.

    • Elias Wedway

      ITA about Mark. He is a total azz, Cary is too good for him and he certainly does not deserve to have that innocent child. I wonder if he treated his kids from his 1st marriage the same way. Pathetic excuse for a father, he is. Most of the nitwit teen fathers on the Teen Mom show, are better fathers.

  • prycer

    LeeAnne is a walking contradiction. I am glad that she got called out. Kameron, Kameron, Kameron is so superficial. She is my least favorite.

  • tntw131923

    Kameron is like a more annoying version of Heather Dubrow. I don’t care how much $ you have or what your last name is. Stop with the pretentious facial expressions & hand gestures. Other than that I really do like this series and hope it lasts. I also really like D’ Andra and find the whole dynamic with her mother fascinating. I think the over-bearing, perfectionistic mother is very relatable-especially to those raised in the south.

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      This really is a great season so far!!! D’Andra is an excellent addition to the cast. For that matter, even though Kameron is annoying she does have a connection with D’Andra and LeeAnne and that’s half the battle for Bravo when casting these shows. I would much rather have Bravo cast someone that has a connection to the cast than a perfect stranger.

      I’m getting ready to knock Dallas up to the top of my favorites list (behind BH of course)!!!

  • TartLemon

    Blech Kameron!

    I’m liking D’Andra. She’s a straight shooter.

    Boo-effin’-hoo LeeAnne. How much longer will she be a victim of her own choosing? Every time LeeAnne gets called out for intolerable behavior, she comes out with the bad childhood excuse. It’s a CHOICE she makes.

  • chacha1

    I still despise drunk ass Brandi, her ugly ass face, and her annoying fake baby talk
    I totally hate that asshole that is married to Cary and hates his daughter Zuri…. the man has serious anger issues and I would be afraid of him, ….
    LeAnne what is up with the faces you keep making, you are really weird … stop it !!!and you should have been thrilled to show off your ring… just tell everyone that when you set a date you will let them know

    • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

      Cary’s husband is really terrible, isn’t he? I remember him being annoying and a little suffocating last year but this year he’s just such a turd! His treatment of his wife and his daughter is reprehensible and we’re just seeing what he’s choosing to show us. Imagine how verbally abusive he is behind closed doors.

      • Elias Wedway

        I was shocked when Court said: “She (Zuri) is adorable” and Mark said:”Yeah, I guess so”. WTH, most fathers glow when someone gives their little girl a compliment, azzhole Mark acts like he despises the poor child. IMO he is jealous of the child and of the love and attention she gets from Cary, which is totally sick.

        • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

          Yeah, he’s not even trying to hide his disdain for his own child.

  • chacha1

    These motivational speakers are nothing but a bunch of whack-o’s…. they talk about how bad it was when they were little and now that they are grown nothing has changed if they tell the truth, they are also bible banging preachers who prey on people and take their money….. the only motivational people I want to hear from and give money to is our veterans who fought for our country, got wounded and are moving forward without limbs and eyesight …..

    • GirlPlz

      Who goes to these events!
      LeeAnne is grifter

  • Txtea

    I got chills listening to Leanne at the end of the episode behind a door for next week… she’s demonic. The pity party shit is her one human emotion she tries on everyone and it’s enough. Leanne is literally showcasing she is an unstable phony in every sense, why on earth would she be picked to speak anywhere at this point?? She’s crazy in a very real creepy way. 😖😖

    • GirlPlz

      It’s probably a faux charity. Both use each other

    • chacha1

      Brandi also has that scary voice that she used on the phone when she was pranking Heidi, now that was scary ……

  • Darris

    D’Andra I like this lady. Good addition…I feel like she could fit in RHOBH or RHONY as well.

  • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

    I can’t stand Kameron! Holy cow! This woman has her panties in a bunch because Brandi isn’t using proper etiquette and Kameron’s constant calling out of this behavior is also poor etiquette. IMO, that is WORSE because she claims to have such impeccable manners. She is a pretentious, hateful wannabe. She married into a good family; she didn’t COME from a good family. What a witch. It will be lovely to watch her fall from grace.

    I really like D’Andra because she doesn’t let Leann get away with her nonsense.

  • chacha1

    Brandi looks like too much in-breeding …. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it but now I see it

  • S Smith

    Mark is a pompous abusive ASS! If my husband treated my child in such a horrific way and spoke to me like that as well, I’d be heading for a lawyer and be rid of him so fast! All these people are the scum of wealth and privilege! I watch them and Thank God I am not anything like them!
