Â This season, LeeAnne is focusing on repairing her reputation and re-connecting with the ladies as she faces her issues head-on with the help of anger management. Always on the go, Cary struggles with her work-life balance as she tries to spend more time with her daughter Zuri, while making sure Markâ€™s needs are still met at the office. Â Once inseparable best friends, Brandi and Stephanie havenâ€™t spoken in months causing a strain on the group dynamic as women try to reunite the dynamic duo. Â Highland Park neighbors Dâ€™Andra and Kameron are introduced to the ladies through mutual friends but quickly find themselves inserted into the drama.”
Check out the cast biographies below and meet the new Housewives.
Brandi Redmond:Â A former All-Star, Pro-Bowl and five-time Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, Brandi has no problem cartwheeling her way into the Dallas Drama. Â Brandi is unafraid to speak her mind, but her fun-loving and enthusiastic attitude can sometimes rub the ladies the wrong way. She has lived in the Lone Star State for 25 years and is a graduate of Texas Womanâ€™s University. Married to her high-school sweetheart, Bryan, Brandi is currently a full-time mom of two young, girls. After struggling in her relationship last year and nearly reaching the brink of divorce, Brandi and Bryan have made a new commitment to better communicate and spend more time together as a family. While her marriage is finally back on track, this season she finds her relationship with best friend StephanieÂ on shaky ground.
Cary Deuber:Â Originally an east coast girl from Connecticut, Cary spent her childhood in Ohio before moving to Texas. After studying nursing, she pursued an advanced practice degree to become a CRNFA certified registered nurse first assistant. She has actively led and participated in multiple medical mission trips, focusing on pediatric surgeries in various third world countries. Cary has been a part of the cast since season one and continues to live in Dallas with her successful plastic surgeon husband, Dr. Mark Deuber, serving as his operative assistant, while still maintaining her own aesthetic injectable practice. Her most important role is mom to her daughter, two step-children, and three dogs. This season, Cary struggles with her work life balance as she tries to spend more time with her daughter, Zuri while making sure Markâ€™s needs are still met as they plan to expand the practice. A huge yogi with a type-A personality, Cary has a refreshing, dry sense of humor with an air of confidence and a heart of gold.
D’Andra Simmons:Â Born and raised in Dallas, D’Andra Simmons is one of the crown jewels of the social scene who comes from a wealthy family and a prominent last name. She lives in the exclusive Highland Park neighborhood with her husband Jeremy, a photojournalist and his 20-year-old son from a previous marriage. Dâ€™Andra has perfected the ability to elegantly navigate vastly different social situations – from the upper echelon world of galas and fundraisers to roughing it in Africa. Eager to take control of the family business once her mother finally retires, Dâ€™Andra struggles to face the fact that her mother might not be ready to hand over the reins.
LeeAnne Locken:Â A far cry from a sweet, southern belle, LeeAnne has a strong, spirited attitude and is no stranger to the spotlight. She grew up in the carnival circuit, landed in the Top 10 in the 1989 Miss USA Pageant, appeared in several television shows and movies, and now leads the efforts for many charitable organizations in Dallas. Her entire social circuit is rooted in the premise of giving back and volunteering to the organizations she is most passionate about, and she has made a career out of her charity work. She also has the ability to truly ruffle some Dallas feathers and after last season, LeeAnne is focused on her anger management therapy and repairing her reputation with the ladies.
Kameron Wescott:Â Growing up in Montecito, California, Kameron started her Texas life at Southern Methodist University where she met her husband Court Westcott, whose persistence and charm finally won her over. The Westcott name is extremely prominent in Dallas, they live in the exclusive neighborhood of Highland Park with their children, their Russian Bulldog, Chunk, and Kameronâ€™s beloved Yorkie, Louis Vuitton. Â Kameron has an obsessive love for the color pink and has made her motto “Blonde by birth, pink by choice.”Â With her passion for dogs, she is developing an organic and natural pink dog food line. Highly respected in the charity scene, Kameron has a wide social circle that spans across Dallas, which she believes is â€œthe Dallas way.â€ One should never underestimate this bombshell as she often uses the blonde card to her own advantage.
Stephanie Hollman: Â Born and raised in a small town in Oklahoma, Stephanie is “the girl next door” who moved to Texas. Stephanie resides in Dallas with her husband, Travis, and two young sons Chance and Cruz. Stephanie is passionate about giving back, and is actively involved in numerous charity organizations. After her falling out with best friend Brandi, Stephanie finds herself at a loss. She is used to turning to her husband for the answer, but realizes only she can fix her friendship. When push comes to shove, Stephanie is not afraid to speak her mind and find her voice.
