Let Our Scientific Scoring System Decide Who the True RHOD Queen Is

Last week on The Real Housewives of Dallas, something happened off-camera that we did not get to see, but once the camera turned back on, Housewife Brandi Redmond let filled us in.


Late at night during the women's ski trip in Beaver Creek, Colorado, it is said Housewives LeeAnne Locken and D'Andra Simmons got "aggressive" as they argued who was the queen of the show. It is an important argument and one many historians will study in decades to come. They will contemplate over a stiff drink about each woman's contributions to reality television until one queen is crowned in her grave.

But we can't wait that long. We want to crown a queen now.

Decided by our scientific ruling, where one serious newsperson sits behind her computer and comes up with a fake scoring system, we will crown a Queen of The Dallas Housewives before you can say, "They're just hands."
