Ahead of the highly anticipated premiere of season five, which was filmed in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, fans are catching up with returning wives Brandi Redmond, Stephanie Hollman, D’Andra Simmons, Kameron Westcott, and Kary Brittingham, and they’re meeting new wives Dr. Tiffany Moon and Jennifer Davis Long, who will appear in full-time and part-time roles, respectively.
“I gotta say, it’s been really nice having a doctor around,” Stephanie says of Tiffany in the just-released trailer for the new episodes.
“Is it?” Kary asks in response, hitting that she isn’t so thrilled with Tiffany’s addition to the show.
While Tiffany suggests that she and Stephanie get along well because Stephanie is sweet and she’s sour, Kary isn’t impressed with the way in which Tiffany continues to “give orders.” Meanwhile, Tiffany appears to be less than impressed with the RHOD cast as a whole, saying that not fighting and being honest is “really hard” for the ladies before comparing their drama to that of a middle school.
“Am I in middle school again?” Tiffany asks during a camping trip with the women. “‘Cause I sure as hell feel like it.”
Then, during another moment with the cast, Kary confronts Tiffany at a group dinner.
“You are very two-faced,” she tells the newbie.
“I’m not two-faced!” Tiffany insists.
Throughout the fifth season of RHOD, fans will watch as Stephanie launches her own foundation amid doubts from her husband, Travis Hollman, who questions her ability, and they will also see Brandi, who is expecting her fourth child, struggling with the Asian scandal she faced earlier this year, especially after Tiffany is added to the cast.
“What you did was wrong,” Tiffany tells her. “You know that.”
According to Brandi, she “contemplated suicide” after being accused of racism and ultimately checked into a wellness center in January.
Elsewhere, D’Andra attempts to reconcile with members of her family who she hasn’t seen in years, Kameron attempts to sell her home amid a power struggle with husband Court Westcott, who she wants to treat her as an equal, and Tiffany faces challenges with balancing her family life with her hectic career.
“I want to give them the childhood that I never had,” the physician says through tears.
As for newbie Jennifer, she was not heard from in the trailer.
The Real Housewives of Dallas season five premieres on Tuesday, January 5, at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
