‘RHOD’: D’Andra Simmons Knows Her Voice Is Deep in the Season 5 Intro
D’Andra Simmons of The Real Housewives of Dallas has been giving fans fun and laughter throughout her time on the show. The heiress has been proving Mama Dee Simmons that she is capable of handling the family business all by herself. Beside her drama on the Bravo reality series, there’s been one particular note that viewers have been making on social media. Simmons’ voice sounds different in the season 5 intro and the star is well aware of it.
What are the ‘RHOD’ Season 5 taglines?
Fans of The Real Housewives franchises know that every season the stars of the shows change their taglines. In the opening sequence of each series, each of the housewives says a catchy phrase that summarizes their drama that particular year. For RHOD Season 5, the ladies returned with fresh new taglines.
Stephanie Hollman: “I don’t need your approval, I need you to get out of my way.”
Kary Brittingham: “If you take a shot at me, it better be tequila.”
Tiffany Moon: “I can save your life, but not your reputation.”
Brandi Redmond: “Take it from me, a sinner is a saint who keeps on trying.”
D’Andra Simmons: “Dallas girls are sugar and spice but I’m still working on nice.”
Kameron Westcott: “I love to be pampered but I’m nobody’s pet.”
Why does D’Andra Simmons sound different?
All the taglines for RHOD Season 5 quickly became fan favorites but there was one that sounded a little off. Social media went rampant talking about Simmons’ line. The talk was not because it was so witty and clever, but due to the way, she delivered it.
Simmons has a strong Texan accent and her voice sounds extra deep in the opening sequence. As the intro was released shortly after it was announced Simmons had been sick in the hospital, many pointed out that she might have recorded it while feeling unwell. However, after much speculation, Simmons finally broke her silence about her voice and explained.
“Oh my lord!” Simmons told Brice Sander while doing an interview for ET. “Every time that I listen I’m like, ‘When did my voice get that low.'”
Sander pointed out that Simmons sounded she had just been smoking and read the line. They both laughed at the idea and Simmons continued to explain.
“I didn’t even know that my voice was that low, that register,” Simmons added. “It was kind of like a shock to me too. I had several reads of that line and that’s the one [producers] chose. It certainly surprised people.”
Simmons continued mocking herself and read the line in a deeper voice than the RHOD intro which only made her laugh even more at the silliness.
This season, Simmons is having issues with her friend Brittingham who has been taking little jabs, something that surprised the former.
“I didn’t understand that Kary had such deep-seeded opinions and feelings about our friendship until I started watching the season,” Simmons told ET Online. “I mean, I knew we were fighting a lot on, you know, during filming, but I never, ever would’ve thought that she would’ve called me selfish or that I wasn’t a good friend, or any of the things she’s saying about me, and it really hurt my feelings and I’ve really tried to get to the bottom of it with her, and you’ll see that kinda unpack and unfold.”
The Real Housewives of Dallas airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
