‘RHOD’: Stephanie Hollman and Cary Deuber Reconnect Following Show’s Cancellation
The Real Housewives of Dallas OG cast member Cary Deuber fell out with best friends Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond when they resurfaced infamous rumors about her husband last year. However, the ladies have since reconciled as Deuber and Hollman posted pictures of the two hanging out following the show’s cancellation announcement.
Cary Deuber claimed she and Stephanie Hollman were no longer friends in July 2020
During an Instagram Live, former cast member and first nurse assistant Cary Deuber revealed she and RHOD star Brandi Redmond were no longer friends because the former NFL cheerleader “f—– me over too many times.”
When it came to full-time housewife and Redmond’s best friend Stephanie Hollman, the Bravo alum claimed she “dumped” Deuber, not considering her “important.”
Additionally, the former cast member claimed that the two aren’t friends because Hollman cannot “manipulate” her.
Deuber described herself as a friend who cares about treating others well and getting it back in return but doesn’t think the RHOD stars view friendship the same way. Therefore, she noted she no longer communicates with the ladies.
They reconnected for drinks following ‘RHOD’ cancellation
In late Aug. 2021, the network revealed it would not bring the Dallas-based franchise back for a sixth season. While it’s unsure if the series is officially canceled or will be revived at some point, similar to Real Housewives of Miami, the show won’t air anytime soon.
It’s also unclear why Bravo pumped the brakes on the Housewives spinoff. However, many fans believe the low ratings and controversial statements from Kameron Westcott’s family aimed at newest cast member Tiffany Moon might have something to do with it.
Shortly after the announcement, Hollman posted an Instagram picture with Deuber, captioning it, “It’s beginning to look a lot like cocktails. Happy hour with my girl.” Redmond seemingly approved of the reunion, commenting, “Love y’all.” A couple of fans pointed out the previous bad blood, wondering when they made up.
Hollman responded to them, noting the two made peace “a while ago” and have been doing “weekly happy hours.” Deuber also posted a picture of the ladies hanging out, confirming they began talking again some time ago. However, they haven’t uploaded any photos together.
Hollman and Brandi Redmond previously threw shade at Deuber
From season 1 until season 3, Deuber appeared as a full-time housewife before stepping down to a “friend of” capacity for the fourth season. During her time on the show, she had a pleasant relationship with Redmond and Hollman.
However, shortly following the Jan. 2020 season 4 finale, the friends threw shade at Deuber during a live taping for their podcast.
A male audience member claimed he “had a little love affair” with someone from the cast, and Redmond asked if the person was Deuber’s husband, Mark, fueling gay rumors LeeAnne Locken started in earlier seasons.
While Redmond and Hollman went on to laugh about the joke, Deuber didn’t find it funny, noting their behavior “disappointed” her because the RHOD stars “saw the pain it caused my family and acted like friends.” The ladies hadn’t revealed how or when they made up, but Deuber has seemingly forgiven the two and is back on friendly terms with them.
