This begins the final season with Larry Hagman as J.R Ewing.
Bittersweet. But, still sweet. The season premiere opened with a message from the cast. ‘Along we will miss our friend (Larry Hagman) dearly, his spirit will live on.’ The beginning of the final season with Larry Hagman. And so, it begins..
Sue Ellen is hot on the campaign trail, and John Ross (the GORGEOUS Josh Henderson) is hot on some..tail! He seduces a bride to be at her bachelorette party, only to blackmail her father into allowing John Ross to lease his oil trucks. It works..especially after John Ross shows him the CELL PHONE VIDEO of the dirty deed! Pictures are so passe..That’s J.R’s boy..’From tip to tail’..
Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) and Elena (Jordana Brewster) are blissfully in love, and now, Christopher has taken up Nascar racing. Not sure what that’s all about, but he sure looks good behind the wheel! Ewing Energies is in full swing,and Bobby, Christopher, John Ross, and Elena are partners. Their first vote does not go well, because John Ross feels that it will always be Bobby and Christopher against John Ross and J.r. Although J.R is not a part of the company, John Ross has enlisted his father to teach him every dirt trick in the book. J.R is happy to oblige. But, nothing will ease the broken heart given to John Ross, by Elena. Nothing except, maybe…a little revenge.
Tommy Sutter’s sister, the real Rebecca Sutter is flown to Dallas by Christopher in order to testify against Pamela Rebecca in the divorce trial. Christopher tells Rebecca to stay out of sight. But, too late. John Ross is also hip to Ms. Sutter.
The evil, but kinda sexy, Harrison (ex husband of Ann Ewing) tells Ann that he ‘found their daughter.’ We discover in this episode, that Ann had a baby girl 22 years ago. When the baby was 18 months old, Ann was at the State Fair,and someone stole the baby from her carriage. Harrison tells Ann that he will only tell her where their daughter is, IF she gives him the blackmail tape of him confessing to money laundering. Ann knows that if she gives him the tape, she will have nothing to protect Sue Ellen from Harrison exposing Sue Ellen for bribery. Her child or her friend? Whatever Brenda Strong does…She is lovely doing it.
Bobby and Christopher to Barnes Global (the company owned by ‘that idiot Cliff Barnes) and she formally introduces herself: ‘I am Pamela Rebecca Barnes.’ Cliff Barnes is her father and Afton is her Mother. Needless to say, Christopher and Bobby are BLOWN AWAY! She offers him visitation (she is carrying his twins), plus she wants 30 % of Ewing Energies…Christopher: BRING IT ON! Pamela is starting to grow on me.
Sue Ellen gives Ann her blessing to give up the tape. Ann and Bobby go to meet,her daughter, Emma. But, the reunion is short. Emma wants nothing to do with Ann! And, it all comes crashing down for Sue Ellen, when the coroner she bribed goes to the press,and campaign is derailed.
John Ross shows on up Pamela’s doorstep with a present. They have a new team member-Rebecca Sutter.
Part 2-’Venomous Creatures’
Christopher is cleaning up his old baby crib, in preparation for the twins. Remember, they are TWINS, Christopher. John Ross pulls up and takes an opportunity to take a crack at Elena. ‘Raising another woman’s baby..Elena, if that isn’t committment, I don’t know what is.’ Christopher wants to punch him out, but Elena calms him down. John Ross informs them that Sue Ellen is being hounded by the media since she lost the election. Ann is very distraught over her daughter’s reaction, and Bobby promises to get to the truth about what happened to Emma and why she feels that way.
Sue Ellen is upset over her loss and she does a very familiar act-she reaches for the bottle. I could hear fans all over the world scream, ‘NO!!!’..But, I was thinking: ‘Take the drink.’ Oh, come on..We all know it was ON, when Sue Ellen was drinking. But, before she breaks her long sobriety, J.R and John Ross show up. J.R gives her a pep talk and promises to make sure no charges are filed against her for the bribery. Before he leaves he encourages Sue Ellen to comfort Ann. That gives Sue Ellen teh stregnth to pour out the glass of wine.
Pamela Rebecca makes her presence known at her father’s company, much to Frank’s (Cliff’s henchman) displeasure. Little Pammy is taking over! The Annulment hearing begins and Rebecca’s attorney tries to portray her as a victim who only legally changed her name. Christopher’s lawyer asks Rebecca , on the stand, if Pamela intentionally tried to con Christopher. Rebecca does as she was paid to do by John Ross and Pamela, and she lies that Pamela was trying to make amends with Christopher…not con him. Christopher explodes in court. The Judge rules that their will be no annulment,a nd court will reconvene for Divorce proceedings. Christopher follows Pamela out of the courtroom,and promises Pamela that this means war. She responds: ‘You should have taken the deal.’
J.R tries to ask the U.S Attorney,nicely, to drop the case against Sue Ellen. He refuses and so J.R decides to take another approach. I think J.R prefers the latter, anyway. Bobby tries to get the truth about Emma out of Harrison, but gets nothing. Bobby threatens Harrison, that he will find the truth, and Harrison better not have had anything to do with Emma’s disappearance.
Since he is such a friendly mood, J.R pays Pamela a visit. He informs her that she can forget about getting her hands on Ewing Energies. ‘I’m one for one for flushing out Pamela’s..I plan on being two for two.’ Classic line. Pamela delivers her payment to Rebecca. She tells her to leave town, but Rebecca wants help finding Tommy. Remember, Rebecca killed Tommy in Season one. Pamela tells Rebecca to ‘take the money.’
J.R succeeds in getting the U.S Attorney to drop the charges. Courtesy of a little blackmail, of course. Elena brings in a great deal, and so they all decide to give up some shares and give them to Elena.,making her an equal partner in Ewing Energies. John Ross agrees in order to help his image, and eventually use it to his advantage.
Frank betrays Pamela by sending Christopher a tape of Pamela threatening Tommy. He takes it to Rebecca and convinces her that maybe Pamela did something to Tommy. They head to the cops.
Bobby tracks down Harrison’s mother (Judith Light) and discovers that SHE kidnapped Emma, raised her London…and, Harrison was in on it!

That’s the view from a ‘Real American Girl’
The Premiere was split in 2 episodes. Here is Part 1 and Part 2.
Who says you can’t go home again? Someone who has never been to Southfork , and certainly not someone with the last name Ewing. It was almost surreal for a girl who LIVED for Friday nights in the 80′s even though I could hardly read my own name, I could certainly make out the initials, ‘J.R! Within the first, five minutes, there was an oil well, proudly displaying the Texas symbol most of us city folks never get to see in person. Imagine that. The excitement kicks off almost immediately when Elena, played by Jordana Brewster, yells, ‘Wake Up, John Ross!’ And we see the image of a young man stretched out, but who jumps up quickly at the smell of oil. Did anyone else feel the tingle of the spirit of James Dean in ‘GIANT’ ? There he is. J.R’s boy- John Ross Ewing III, and I could hear viewers all over saying, ‘Chip off the old block’…We struck oil! Only one problem…Uncle Bobby, does not want drilling on Southfork. That sounds familiar.
And, we first see our beloved Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) in the doctor’s office, were he is told that he has stomach Cancer. Of course he took it with the nobility that we would expect..’I don’t want my family to know,’ he says before he exits. All together now: ‘Oh, No…’ Of course, his wife, Ann, (Brenda Strong) eventually finds out and lends her love and support. She also knows her way with a shotgun, when an intruder breaks into the ranch.
The opening theme song, stayed true to the original, ‘THANK GOD!’; and, like a kid who went away for the summer….I too, was back home.
Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe) appeared on screen as the golden boy, that he was meant to be. He is Bobby’s son (adopted) after all. He wants to expand in the Energy business, since his Daddy is no longer in Oil. Christopher meets with investors,and stands his ground when they try to belittle his dream project. Enter a cute girl, who speaks French to Christopher (what Texas Boy can resist that) and the two go make out in the locker room. Turns out the young lady is Rebecca , Christopher’s fiance. She seems sweet enough ,and Christopher definitely seems smitten’.
A moment that was highly anticipated, and was quietly sled into..The appearance of J.R Ewing. Sitting silent in a chair of what seems to be a nursing home ( for the VERY wealthy and powerful only) and the dutiful brother , Bobby visits reguraly. Bobby tells J.R that he is worried about John Ross and Christopher and does not want them to be like he and J.R. He kisses J.R on the forehead and tells him he loves him. J.R never says a word.
Now, we are going to speed things up a little…Here we go:
Bobby decides to sell Southfork, due to his illness and the fighting between the boys. He also plans to give Christopher the money he needs to start his Energy company. If you are a true ‘DALLAS’ fan, then you remember when Miss Ellie threaten to sell Ewing Oil, because Bobby and J.R could not work together. Anyway, John Ross won’t hear of it. He shows Uncle Bobby and Christopher the oil well, and Bobby says, ‘NO DRILLING ON SOUTHFORK!” John Ross, takes a very disrespectful tone in regards to it being to late to ‘honor Miss Ellie’s precious memory’…Very surprising considering how good Miss Ellie was to her grandchildren. Bobby is furious and kicks John Ross of f the ranch. This is where things get tricky…
John Ross decides it’s time to pay his Daddy a visit. He talks to a catatonic J.R about how everything has been taken from them, and he is contested Miss Ellie’s will in order to get control of Southfork. J.R responds…He thinks…He sends John Ross for some Jell-O…And, then once his scheme has clicked in his head, he tells his spawn, ‘Son, I forgive you for not visiting sooner..” And, so it begins..
On Christopher’s wedding day, John Ross find out that Chris’s energy deal is flawed, He tries to black mail into telling Bobby to stop the sale of Southfork, or he will expose him’ for the fraud that he is..’ It is also revealed that Christopher and Elena still have Strong feelings h other (they dated when they were younger) and they were tricked into breaking up. Christopher accuses John Ross of sending Elena an email (claiming to be Christopher) breaking up with her. John Ross says he did’nt send it, and on mysterious begins…Who really broke up Christopher and Elena? And, why?
Sue Ellen (the FABULOUS Linda Gray) arrives to give her son some much needed support. Regretful of using him against J.R, she vows to ‘make it up to him’…
A very interesting character to the mix, Marta del Sol, arrives as a possible buyer for Southfork. But, wait…we later find out, she works for J.R! But, wait, then we see that she is working with John Ross to double cross J.R!
Ahh…It’s so nice to be home again…
Things may have been going well for John Ross and his scheme, until J.R catches him and Marta kissing in the parking lot of the nursing home! Let the games begin, son..J.R is already antsy begins Marta is stalling getting J.R in touch with her father so they can close their deal on Southfork. The plan is that Marta will buy the ranch for J.R and transfer it into his name. This is plan is thick with layers and players. Not only is John Ross scheming with Marta, but also the lawyer , Mitch Lobell, who Bobby has intrusted with the sale of Southfork. Oh, yeah, J.R has Mitch in his pocket too.
Sue Ellen gives Elena the boost she needs to explore her oil projects and she may have found a powerful ally in the possible, future Governor.
Surprisingly, the Cattle Barons Ball, which was once the ‘Oil Baron Ball’ usually took place later in the season, because there was often a climatic moment. This time, it was new bling, and the spectacular setting of American Airlines Center. The belt buckle on J.R that read ‘J.R’ in diamonds, was ‘Baller Personified!’ J.R and Bobby made nice, he likes Ann, and made Sue Ellen flutter. After all these years, he can still get to her.
The last 15 minutes were like a slow spiral into the well of deception…John Ross goes to see Marta, and she drugs his drink, they have sex and she tapes it! Not sure what the purpose of that was, but I can wait. And, just when you think Marta was only a secondary pawn…J.R makes a trip to Mexico and talks to Carlos, and meets the real Marta! Even J.R is stumped…
Ya’ll come back, now…
Some people wait all year for Christmas…I wait for the Season Premiere of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’! And, it was well worth it..Here we go:
A very pregnant Kim Zolciak, (although she gave birth to a boy, in the summer) is planning on moving into her dream home, with fiance, Kroy Biermann. He is cute, but obviously younger, but hopefully not too inexperienced. Watch out Kroy…Kim is an ‘Old Schooler’..
One of the impressive things about Kim this season, is the make-over of her Assistant, Sweetie. You may remember Sweetie (who NeNe referred to as a ‘slave’, last season), as the loyal, yet verbally abused Assistant to Kim. This year, Sweetie is still loyal
slave assistant, but with MAKE-UP!
Some of the ladies are exploring their Business skills: Kandi is starting a line of Sex-Toys (gross!), Phaedra is planning on opening a funeral home…OK? and, Cynthia has started the Bailey Agency, a modeling school for girls. Some of these ideas appear to cry for help to Bravo: PAY RAISE PLEASE!!
In respect to Kandi Burress, I was really pulling for her to restart her singing career. When she first came on the show, she was focused on that and raising her daughter, Riley. The sudden death of her ex-fiance AJ was a major blow, but the talented artist bounced back. Just not sure about the sex line idea. Will get back to you on that….
Cynthia Bailey was a newcomer last season, and really didn’t gel at first. But, when it was revealed that she may NOT walk down the aisle with her then fiance, Peter…Cynthia became a little more interesting. Oh, yeah, and she has a daughter with Actor, Leon. I know…Who cares? However, based on the previews of this season, Cynthia may have a little more juice in her storyline. There may be some issues between her husband and her sister. The sister was not supportive of the marriage, and that is never good.
Phaedra Parks seems to have risen above last years gossip surrounding her ‘ex-convict husband, Apollo and her baby’s due date. As an attorney, she seems to be the only one with a steady career. Also, the best wardrobe.
The highlight of the episode…NeNe and Sheree: The Fight! Please make note, of the new catch phrase: ‘I am VERY rich!’, NeNe Leakes. So much better, if you see for yourself:
Take the poll:
I know…I know..It has been awhile! Now, here we are: The Season Finale of BIG RICH TEXAS!!! I can truly say..It was Big. And, apparently…very Rich!
We all knew there was a MAJOR feud, between Pam (‘Badass Boss Blonde) and Bonnie (‘Dr. Hottie’), but, NOW, that feud seems to include Leslie. It was clear a few weeks ago, that BBB wanted more details on the finances of Leslie (Beauty Queen/BQ). Not believing for one minute that BQ is a rich as she says she is, BBB started to do a little digging, and even asked Cute Connie to investigate her own cousin! Cute Connie agreed, so she must have been equally as curious about Leslie. We will have to wait until next season to find out what, if anything, Connie found on Leslie. But, what Connie DID find out, is that Leslie went on a date with Connie’s ex-husband, John. He also served as Leslie’s realtor. I called ‘FOUL’ on that weeks ago, but I don’t get involved in family business…
On too the ’Joanie and Chachi’ (For you kids out there, ask your folks about ‘Happy Days’) of the show- Whitney and Tyler. Brace yourselves, folks. I think this love story has come to an end. Tyler decided to return to his home in Washington. Without Whitney. That made mom, Dr. Hottie very happy. Bonnie without Whitney is like a sundae without the cherry! And, honestly, Whit may need a little more ‘Gangsta’ in her guy. But, that is just my opinion. However, I am not sure that we have seen the last of Sweet Tyler.
But, we did see plenty of Melissa! Doing her thing, and reviving her modeling career. We were left wondering if Melissa will leave for a three week modeling gig. It is very hard for her to be away from her 15 year old, Maddie, but I am sure that Maddie will be just fine. She is every mother’s dream!
Now the DRAMA: As I mentioned earlier, Pam (BBB) has been digging into Leslie’s financial business. While attending Leslie’s housewarming party (By the way, that house is too dang BIG), Melissa stumbled on some interesting information: Leslie LEASED THE HOUSE!!! Uhhh…O.K…I guess, that’s bad, right? Well, according to Melissa, since Leslie told her she BOUGHT the house, Missy felt like it was valid to ‘BUST HER A**!’ So, who does Missy go tell? PAM, of course!
Melissa (to me at Bonnie’s Finale party): ‘Don’t lie to my F–king face!’ I will try to remember that, Missy.
What did I tell you ? I said, I would touch base with Kalyn, and I did. I said, I would gt back to you, and I am. Kalyn Nicole Braun is a sweet California girl, who is trying to adjust to this Texas heat. And, as you can see, it is HOT down here!
1. How did you feel about doing the show in the beginning?
At the beginning of the show I was excited. What 18 year old wouldn’t be? But I also was scared. I had just finished highschool I would be moving to a completely new setting with new people and I honestly just wanted to fit in.
2. Has you relationship with Leslie changed?
Leslie and my relationship hasnt changed if anything we have only grown closer. Yes, we fight but what teen and parent doesnt? I’m really appreciative of everything Leslie does for me and I love her.
3. You seemed hostile towards Leslie..What’s up?
If your talking about Episode 5 (see recap) , my behavior was inappropriate. I was acting that way, because I felt Leslie promised me all these things and I wasnt receiving all of them. But in the end, Leslie and I worked it out and were doing much better.
4. What is the REAL reason you don’t want to go back home?
The real reason I don’t wanna go home is the same reason I explained on past episodes. I don’t get along with my mom we have had a rocky relationship and its hard for me to be around her.
5. How is your relationship with Whitney, since the fight?
My relationship with Whitney since our fight had been pretty plain and simple. We talk when needed. We don’t pick on each other. We just don’t say anything that honestly doesn’t need to be said.
6. What are your career goals?
My career goals as of right now are still to become a pastry chef and open up my own shop
7. What can we expect from your Mom’s visit?
Hmm.. What can BRT views expect with my moms visit…. DRAMA! Ha just wait and watch (laugh)
8. Is there anything else you want viewers to know about you ?
I just want views to know that I’m not perfect. Everyone makes mistakes, and I’m always gonna rise and be the best that I can be. No matter how far I fall, first.
Well said, Dear. We shall see you next week, Kailyn. And, your Mom.
Sitting here, gazing out the window of my ‘Worldwide Headquarters’ (my condo in Uptown Dallas), I am still baffled. Actually, stunned is more like it. Last night’s episode reached almost every limit imaginable. And, at the end of almost every scene, I found myself saying (out loud) ‘No, she DID’NT!” Who, you ask? ALL OF THEM!
Last night’s episode should have been titled, ‘Who ‘gon check me, Boo?’, (courtesy of Sheree, Real Housewives of Atlanta) because every one of these chicks laid their cards on the table…But, which one was holding the Ace?
Let’s start with BQ ’Beauty Queen’ Leslie. They told her, ‘Country Club’ employees are NOT ALLOWED to date the members.’ And? So? Does that include the beautiful ones? Yes, BQ. I’m afraid it does. So, if you are ‘breaking the rules’, and you know you were girl, I suppose the only thing you can do is, break them BIG! How? Take your ‘illigetimate date’ to Pam’s house for a party!
’Boss Pam’ could not wait to call Leslie out for having the nerve to bring ‘The Help.’..And, no, not the movie! BQ, kept her cool ,and denied that she was on a ‘date’ with AJ who is employed at the club.But she did leave shortly after things got too personal. A subject, far more invasive than ‘who you’re dating’ came up and changed the evenings playful tone, The subject of: Leslie’s finances. Here we go again…The beige Ferrari.
A little back story: Leslie was a model in her teens. Made a lot of money. Bought a Beige Ferrari. Pam cried, ‘Bulls**t’, no such thing as a beige Ferrari.’ Leslie says she made alot of money, bought alot of properties, and lives pretty well.
Last night, Ignacio, Pam’s husband, joined the debate, I will refer to as: ‘LESLIEGATE’, by stating that she can not have multiple properties in different states, unless she had a network of over $ 100 million. Uhhh..Mr. Duarte, I don’t like to argue with good looking gentlemen, but she never said these were multi-million dollar townhouses. Maybe they are Section 8. Who knows?
Now, my Whit Whit made me proud…She wanted to STUDY! Take that you conservative, anti ‘c -word tatoo’, Haters! She is smart enough to know that if she wants to be a Doctor, then she must get excellent grades. Her mother, Dr. ‘Hottie’ Bonnie decided to take Whit to a place where all Scientists, develop most of their theories-a bar. However, this trip did include a lesson on Ethanol, that I found very informative. By the way, Hottie, that straight hair look works for you !
More on Leslie. As Connie’s cousin, I am not sure if dating her ex-husband is the right thing for Leslie to do. Sounds to ‘Jerry Springer’ like. Oh, that’s not bad..JERRY!JERRY!JERRY! It’s just on another network. But what do YOU THINK ? Take the poll:
Enter ‘Missy’ Melissa, yes, the Model. She tells the ladies about her diet, that includes gorging. What? I am not sure what all that entails, but it does not sound like something I want any of my sisters doing. Unless….are you trying to get booked on Celebrity Rehab after this? Eating disorders are making a comeback, in Reality T.V. What? I’m just saying….
On The Teen Scene
Grace. Your name says alot about you, my dear. When Zakk, who was on a date with Maddie, began to flirt with you it was the mature thing for you to ‘BUST HIS A**!’ That’s right, she told Maddie, and there is no doubt the friendship will last. But, Zakk…You are cute, sweetie, but I am not sure your ‘Player Card’ has been issued, just yet. However, I am following this developing story…
On to Kailyn…There was some major hostility towards Leslie in this episode. And, then, just before they rolled the credits-the doorbell rang. Who is it? Kailyn’s MOTHER! Leslie is saying ‘Shape up, or Ship out!’ Oh,snap!
Now, that was some dang drama…In fact, I am too nosey and impatient to wait until next week. I need to get Kailyn on the phone now, and grab a quick interview.
My next column may have to be ‘All About Kailyn’ …You deserve it.
Life is full of confessions, and here is mine for the day: I made up in my mind before Most Eligible Dallas premiered, that I would not like this show. Yet, I tuned in for the first episode, out of fairness, so that I would be well informed as to why I did not like this show. The previews alone nearly made my head hurt.
For the record, I do not know any of the stars personally, and this is not a reflection on them. I understand that they are doing a job, that they were paid to do. But, I could not remain silent on the ‘reality’ of this show. This is actually a letter to Bravo:
Dear Bravo TV Network,
As a longtime fan of your programming, and a Dallas native, I felt compelled to write this letter and inform you of my feelings regarding your new show: Most Eligible Dallas. Please don’t be offended, but, the show sucks. Here are the main reasons why:
1. Lack of DIVERSITY!
Are you serious? Bravo Network..Are you serious? Do you REALLY think that all people just live in Atlanta? I was floored to see that there was not ONE PERSON OF COLOR on the show! Now, I know you may be thinking-this is typical sour grapes from someone who was not picked for the show, or the ‘angry Black woman.’ I don’t care. But, just to clarify – I have my OWN projects in the works, and, I am not ‘angry’, just ‘AWARE.’ Only ONE other local blogger, so far has even mentioned the lack of diversity (two words, I think, but it was a mention), therefore, I wondered-Are other people NOT aware, or just don’t care?
Dallas is: 25% Black
And, that is with a population of OVER 1 MILLION. Just in the city of Dallas. So. We are expected to believe that Bravo could not find ONE Black, Hispanic, or Asian?! There was not another Black woman on ANY of the other franchises, until Real Housewives of D.C, which was cancelled. With Real Housewives of Atlanta, diversity was added. Why not with the others? Bravo…you get an automatic F on that.
You may be wondering, how is Style Network’s , ’Big Rich Texas’, any different? Just a few facts:
Connie Dieb- one of the stars is Phillipino and White.
Pamela Martin Duarte-her husband, Ignacio is Spanish.
Leslie Birkland- one of the stars went on a date with a Black man (who happened to be, Tony Dorsett’s son)
It may not be a Benetton Ad, but it is progress.
2. Who are you , again?
If you are going to have the title ‘MOST’, I assume that to mean-you are abundantly blessed with ALL qualities desirable. Bravo has ranked our residents, by a.) shopping ability b.) crafty skill of having people wait on you, and the ALL TOO IMPORTANT, c.) Who’s Your Daddy?! If your answer to the last question is ANYONE on the Preston Hollow/Highland Park social registry and has a membership to the
restricted Dallas Country Club-Congratulations,YOUR IN !!
I could go on…But, then I may sound mean.
A Real American Girl
I am OFFICIALLY the #1 Fan of the new hot Reality Show, ‘Big Rich Texas’! As a former Reporter, now Actress, I still have that curiosity bug, and this show has given me a FEVER! I will be a dedicated Blogger for this show, throughout the season. The show is so BIG, I gave it it’s on page! Be sure to check back here every week , for recaps, INTERVIEWS W/CAST, and of course, my totally BIASED opinion of the week’s episode! Stay tuned…
1. You were on Divas and Daughters, and now this is your second Reality Show? How did you get into the Reality biz, and is this your future?
I was on Dallas Divas and Daughters but this is definitely not my future haha. I don’t plan on having cameras follow me around for the rest of my life.
2. How is Big Rich different from Divas, or is it?
BRT definitely has a lot more focus on the mothers than the daughters but it still is very similar because it shows all of the relationships between the mothers and their daughters. BRT also follows our lives around the country club.
3.Whitney says that you 2 are friends. Is that hard considering how your mom feels about Bonnie ?
I love Whitney and we are definitely friends. My mom has absolutely no problem with our friendship. Her and Bonnie don’t really get along but Whitney and I are both old enough where we can be friends regardless of our parents. I mean we can both drive so our parents don’t really have to be around each other too much.
4. What is your Major? Career plans?
I am currently studying Broadcast Journalism and Spanish. Hopefully I’ll be able to pursue that and you may be watching me on your TV’s for even longer!
5. You said Debs are more selective and Pageant girls are ‘random shmucks’…Did you mean that?
The pageants that Kalyn does are definitely not as reputable as Miss Texas, Miss America, etc. The Debutante programs here in the Dallas AREA are definitely a little bit more exclusive than the pageants that Kalyn and Leslie do which have women ranging from age 5 to 55. Leslie thought that a Debutante Ball was just like a Pageant, which it definitely is not. That’s all I meant by that comment.
6. Are you close, or NOT close to any of the other girls?
I’m definitely the closest to Whitney but since my mom is friends with Connie and Melissa I know their daughters too. But, since I’ve been away at college it is a little hard to still be connected with all of them
Anything you would like the readers/viewers to know about you!
Keep watching BRT! There’s a ton of new drama coming up and y’all may be surprised!

My goodness! I have been trying for 2 days to write this blog, but my phone has been ringing, the Inbox is full, and the questions are all the same: What is going on with your girls, Pam and Bonnie (aka ‘Pannie’) ? Sunday nights episode gave new meaning to the once overdone, but now very appropriate phrase: ‘I DON’T LIKE YOU!’ And, of course, as with most great feuds, this one involved-a party. Bonnie wanted to host a ‘Murder Mystery Party’ at the Country Club. Pam did not want that to happen. And, so it begins…
I always wanted to go to a Murder Mystery Party, and I would have LOVED to attended Dr. Hottie’s. For the newbies, Dr. Bonnie Blossman ’Dr. Hottie’ is a Biology professor, author, Recording Artist,and Mystery Party Host. I am sure that Brain surgeon will be added to the list at a later time. It was at one of Hottie’s Mystery Parties (the theme was 1920′s!), that the MAJOR drama of the episode unfolded. I know the suspense is killing you ,so I will get right to it…Of ALL PEOPLE for Dr. Hottie to choose as the MURDER VICTIM: Who does she choose? Pam. Pam? Pamela Martin-Duarte. I don’t consider myself Psychic, but something told me that Pam, aka ‘Badass Boss Blonde’ would not be too eager to ‘play along’. You see, as the victim, Pam (‘BBB’) would have to put white paint on her face (to appear as a ghost) or wear a T-shirt over her costume, that read ‘VICTIM’. Neither was a viable option to her. Honestly, Pam was cute in that flapper dress and feather.. ‘She is trying to make a fool out of me!’ said , Pam. Enter Whitney, standing up for her Mama-’It’s my Mom’s game, so you have to play by the rules.’ Sorry, Whit…That just wasn’t going to happen. The ‘BBB’ cuts loose and blast Dr. Hottie in front of her guests, and storms out….GAME OVER!!! Or, is it just beginning?
That brings me to the calls, emails, and DM’s regarding online reports and ‘word on the street’ that there is a FEUD brewing between the cast. In particular-Pam and Bonnie. Not to go into too much detail, but there are some accusations that you can research for yourself. The only thing I will say, is that it involves Cyber-bullying, phony FB pages, reports to facebook for harrassment, etc… I contacted Pam earlier and asked her about the feud. She replied: ‘What feud?‘ Hmmm…I will just say this: IF there is a feud behind the scenes, I will find out about it. And, I will talk about it. Because, that is what I do.
Now, Melissa (who was pretty absent in last week’s episode, What’s up with that?) met with an agent to jump-start her modeling career. The agent informed her that as a SIZE 6, she would be considered PLUS SIZE. Melissa ‘Missy” started crying. Now, Missy..First of all: Don’t you EVER, EVER, EVER cry in a restaurant, in front of an agent, on National television, just because someone told you to lose weight. If you were not going to choose option one, which is: Dump the pitcher of water over the agent’s head, and calmly exit the table. Then you should choose option 2: Graciously nod, walk out, and scratch them off the list. The mirror does not lie, and neither do I. You look great! I do think you should consider Acting. You could be more successful as an actress right now, then limiting yourself to modeling. That’s just what I think.
Now- Maddie and Zach “A Love Story’
O.k, maybe not really, but I know that raised Melissa’s eye brow. In this episode, cute, sweet, Maddie (Melissa’s teen daughter) was fixed up by Grace. I think Grace is very credible as a matchmaker. She is mature, responsible, and she knows some ‘killer’ martial arts moves. So, who did Grace choose as the lucky guy? Zach. Bonnie’s son! Perfect…They met at Grace’s house (without Melissa’s permission), and the teens sat around and drank grape juice from a wine glass. Nothing happened except, Grace got to show off her excellent Hostess skills, but it was a little taboo to sneak around behind Mom’s back. Melissa had a ‘talk’ with Maddie (who is just TOO CUTE!), and that concluded this week’s ‘Afterschool Special’.
Overall, I did not feel the episode was that ‘EXPLOSIVE’, but apparently it is what may be going on OFF CAMERA that really has viewers talking. I better check my Inbox.
