This season of “The Bachelor” will end.
Ben Higgins will (or will not) pick a bride — putting a stop to Monday night watch parties everywhere.
The question on everyone’s mind: How will we cope with this loss?
Well Bravo has come to the rescue. Today they announced the premier of “The Real Housewives of Dallas.” That’s right; SMU’s hometown will be the setting of the new reality TV series premiering April 11 at 10 p.m.
This guilty pleasure will follow the lives of five women living in the Dallas area. Thanks to E! News, we know a little more about the up-and-coming stars. So if you’re out-and-about and stumble across film crews in Highland Park Village, here’s who they’re following.
Cary Deuber: @carydeuber
Deuber isn’t a Texas native, but she’s built quite a home here. As a certified registered nurse’s first assistant, she maintains her own aesthetic injectable practice. These qualifications made her the perfect employee, and wife, for plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Deuber. But work isn’t the only thing this pair shares; they also have three children. This busy schedule hasn’t stopped her from taking a roll as a Real Housewife.
Tiffany Hendra: @tiffanyhendra
With her past as an actress, host and model, Hendra finds herself at home on the television screen. Married to an Australian rocker, the couple moved to Texas to reconnect with family. Rumor has it this housewife has a history, but more details will unfold as the show airs its first season.
Brandi Redmond: @brandi_redmond
Redmond is a true Texan through and through. She is a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader and a graduate of Texas Woman’s University. She’s also a mother to two little girls and dabbles in charity while her husband is off on business. Keep in mind, she’s best friends with our next housewife, Stephanie.
Stephanie Hollman: @stephhollman
Hollman may seem to be Brandi’s innocent friend, but this girl has sass to spice up any conversation. She’s a mother of two boys and lives on the Four Seasons Golf Course, of course.
LeeAnne Locken: @leeannelocken
Locken is used to compliments on her beauty. In 1989 she placed in the top 10 in the Miss USA Pageant. Now she spends most of her time hanging with her boyfriends.
Marie Reyes: She’s just a “friend” of the Dallas Ladies
Reyes is also a registered nurse. She owns and operates SkinSpaMED, which is only 20 minutes away from the SMU campus. Like Deuber, she has a specialty in injections. Despite being just a “friend,” she’ll have her fair share of juicy drama.
