Bravo announced The Real Housewives of Dallas will not return for season 6 next year. The show may return on a streaming platform in the future.
Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Dallas will not return for a sixth season next year, according to an announcement from the network. Though the future of the series is unclear, it is confirmed fans will not see a new season of RHOD anytime soon. The halt on the Texas Housewives franchise comes after The Real Housewives of Dallas season 5 closed out last year with a number of castmates involved in racial insensitivity scandals. Bravo had to come out with a Twitter statement in May defending Tiffany Moon, the first Asian cast member on the series.
“Bravo strongly supports the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community,” the network stated. “Anti-Racism is, in fact, not a form of racism and the network stands by Dr. Tiffany Moon and her advocacy against racism and violence.” Bravo’s statement came after RHOD housewife Kameron Westcott’s husband, Court Westcott, and Kameron’s brother-in-law, Chart Westcott, attacked Tiffany for her stances. Court went on to call Tiffany racist in a now-deleted tweet, writing: “I don’t understand how many of your patients would be comfortable with you treating them with your open vile racism.” Fans criticized Kameron for racist behavior toward Tiffany at the reunion. A resurfaced video of housewife Brandi Redmond also caused controversy in 2020 when the reality star was seen mocking Asians in the old footage.
Bravo has announced the network does not plan to move forward with a new season, Page Six reports. “There are currently no plans to bring ‘The Real Housewives of Dallas’ back next year, and beyond that nothing official has been decided,” a Bravo rep said. The outlet went on to report RHOD has not been officially canceled. The franchise may eventually return on a streaming platform, like The Real Housewives of Miami revival on Peacock.
The move to not bring The Real Housewives of Dallas back follows an expected cast shakeup by fans due to the recent controversies. Brandi seemed ready to say “goodbye“ to the series after posting a cryptic Instagram post following rumors her husband, Bryan Redmond, had cheated, though a rep later said she was only contemplating leaving. Tiffany also hinted she had plans to leave RHOD by writing, “Previous Cast Member #RHOD S5,″ in her social media bio before removing it later. It seems Dallas housewife D’Andra Simms’ promise on social media to be back for season 6 was made assuming the show would be picked up for another season.
RHOD is among other Housewives installments facing big changes. The Real Housewives of New York and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have welcomed women of color onto the cast in recent years as a response to criticism for their all-white, privileged casts. As the Housewives universe seeks to make more strides in diversity on the series, The Real Housewives of Dallas just couldn’t recover from a rocky season 5.
