Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

That's right. Only zero more days until our six favorite women return for Season 3 of The Real Housewives of Dallas. Today is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Last year D'Andra Simmons said on a podcast that her castmates had an Adderall problem. Some fans speculated she meant Brandi Redmond.

Now Simmons is clearing it up. In an interview with People Now, Simmons says it was a throwaway joke.

"It was an interview about me," Simmons says. "Someone asked me what my biggest fear was, and I said my biggest fear was I was worried about my weight. I've always worried about my weight. I've always had a weight problem, and all these girls are so thin, so I said, 'Oh, but you know, they all take Adderall.' It's a generalization because it's a Dallas thing that women, you know, 'Would you like a Tic Tac, would you like an Adderall, would you like a drink?'"

Yes to all three.

Season 3 premieres at 8 p.m. tonight (!!!!) on Bravo.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
