Do not let the ’80s fashion idiot you: RHOD can carry extra drama than the fictional Ewing household any day. On this campy unique sneak peek at tonight’s new episode, the women of RHOD go to the famed Ewing Mansion at Southfork Ranch immortalized by hit Nineteen Eighties cleaning soap opera Dallas. Whereas some Housewives are star-struck, others aren’t impressed.
“Each Friday evening, I might sit with my dad and we’d watch the episode of Dallas when it aired,” mega-fan D’Andra Simmons confesses. “So long as that present was airing, we had been speaking about it.”
“I used to be born in 1980. I’ve zero relationship to the tv present Dallas,” Stephanie Hollman jokes. “Nonetheless my husband is outdated and he has a relationship [with it].”
In fact the Ewing Mansion is not simply an icon for classic cleaning soap opera followers. “New York has MoMA, the Guggenheim. L.A. has the Getty. Now we have Southfork,” Simmons laughs.
“That is what folks went loopy for again within the ’80s? Who knew,” Hollman counters.
