The Real Housewives franchise have given us reality TV gold for more than a decade now, and now Dallas is joining in on the fun. The most recent new series, Real Housewives of Potomac, has been a snoozefest so we’re hoping that the Dallas cast will keep things interesting.
Now that we’ve gotten to know Brandi Redmond, it’s time to meet her partner-in-crime: Stephanie Hollman. It’s unclear how long the two have been friends, but they both seem to cultivate the “extended brunch before the charity meeting,” lifestyle, which seems really stressful so thank goodness their husbands are so accommodating!
Stephanie, as you might imagine, is fighting off father time with an army of syringes, a medical team on staff for most of the day, and a gargantuan (joint) bank account, and hot damn is she doing a good job at it! As with her bestie, there isn’t a ton of specific information about Steph, but thanks to Bravo (and Stephanie’s management team), we have some great (useless) stuff to pass on.
According to her bio, Stephanie’s “…spirited personality shines brightest when she is beside her best friend, Brandi. Together they are two peas in a pod with youthful attitudes that are sometimes in stark contrast to the more established veterans of the Dallas charity circuit.” Born and raised in a small town in Oklahoma, Stephanie met her husband-to-be some time after birth, and moved to Texas, where she and her family live on a golf course.
Like her BFF, Stephanie is very (and by very, I mean “somewhat.”) involved with charities, because who needs a job? Apparently, Stephanie isn’t as busy as her super, duper busy pal, but at least, she’s proactive about it. According to her bio, “In order for her to make her own money, Stephanie’s husband, Travis, frequently writes up a list of chores for her to complete when he is away on business.” My parents did the same thing growing up, but all I got was food and some walking around money.
Finally, we learn that Stephanie isn’t afraid to say what she thinks (regardless of whether she is qualified to voice her opinion or not). “When push comes to shove, Stephanie is not afraid to speak her mind and find her voice.” I don’t think it will come to it (hey, ya never know), but if there was a tag-team match between Stephanie and Brandi and two other cast members, I have no problem forecasting a victory for the debutantes from Dallas (Brandi and Stephanie, to be clear).
I don’t think it will come to it (hey, ya never know), but if the show devolved into violence, I have no problem seeing the juggernaut that is the Stephanie and Brandi combination taking down the rest of their cast members, before celebrating like Stone Cold Steve Austin, but with wine coolers.
