Reunion time is perhaps the most important time for the Real Housewives – and what’s even more important is where the housewives will be seated on the couch. Part 1 of the Season 4 Reunion of Dallas airs on January 1st, and Bravo gave us a look at the seating arrangements.
It’s kind of an unspoken thing that the closer you are to Andy, the better your seat is. You do NOT want to be on the end of the couch.
Let’s go from left to right. Sitting to the far left on the couch (and this may shock you) is Brandi Redmond. Next to her is LeeAnne Locken. Stephanie Hollman sits next to her, giving her the closest seat to Andy Cohen on the left couch.
On the far side of the right couch sits D’Andra Simmons. Sitting next to her is the newest housewife, Kary Brittingham, and then sitting in the seat closest to Andy on the right couch is Kameron Westcott.
The seating arrangement in a word? Interesting. Never in a million years did I think Brandi Redmond would be sitting furthest away from Andy, since she is an original cast member, and one who can bring the drama. LeeAnne’s middle placement makes more sense – her gross comments about Kary this season made a lot of people upset (including Andy Cohen, who voiced his displeasure on an episode of Watch What Happens Live).
Stephanie Hollman takes the top spot on the left couch, and I think this is well deserved. She’s definitely a fan favorite and always carries herself with poise. This is your time, Steph.
D’Andra’s far right placement makes a lot of sense. Her business storyline is getting old, and it’s just not relatable to fans (granted, it’s hard to be relatable to a bunch of rich ladies, but when the story lines are about family drama or petty friend BS, it’s a lot more relatable than “Mommy won’t let me borrow money from the trust fund.”)
Newcomer Kary Brittingham got treated to a middle seat on her first season. Personally, I would have liked to see her on the far end of the couch. I think if she and LeeAnne weren’t at odds, she would have had Brandi’s seat. Kary definitely came in hot for her first season.
The most surprising of all? Kameron Westcott having the coveted seat next to Andy on the right couch. Kameron has come a long way since she joined the cast in season 2. She went from an unlikable snob trying to push pink dog food, to a woman who proved she can hold her own in the finale of Season 4. Her husband Court also got some points in my book for taking a firm stance against LeeAnne’s words. I still don’t know if she deserved the top spot on the couch just yet, but maybe this is a prediction of a bigger role for her next season.
Here’s how I would have sat the ladies (from left to right):
LeeAnne Locken, Kameron Westcott, Stephanie Hollman
Brandi Redmond, D’Andra Simmons, Kary Brittingham
You can catch the Season 4 Reunion on January 1st at 9 pm on Bravo.
