Back on the 25th March 2010 (yes I checked the date), I announced that Bravo was casting The Real Housewives of Dallas. Well it appears that they have found their cast. Did you really think Bravo was going to rely only on 6 of their cash cows? Never. Here is the cast.
Lisa Troutt is associated with Council for Life with the role of Member, and the owner of L Designs, which specializes in Interior Design. Lisa is the mother of three children and the wife of Kenny Troutt, Founder and former Excel Communications CEO in 1988. This Billionaire beauty is known for throwing lavish events in Dallas at her 13,000 square foot grand estate. Before Mrs. Troutt met her prince charming, she was working as a sales rep for an apparel store when she was 29.
Rhonda Aikman – Rhonda Aikman, formerly known as Rhonda Worthey, is the ex-wife of former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current Fox football analyst. Rhonda and Aikman married in 2000. The couple met when she was a publicist for the Cowboys and he was the starting quarterback; however, they announced their plan to divorce in 2010. Soon after, Rhonda found her dream mansion in Preston Hollow. Rhonda is the mother of three kids, two with Aikman and one with her previous husband.

She is a mother of a 14-year-old son, and has two step children from Mullen’s previous marriage.

Deziree is from Amarillo, Texas and is the Fiance to Young Money/Cash Money music producer Cory “Focus” Harris.

She soon signed with Ford in 2000 and walked the runway in Milan, Tokyo, Paris, and New York. In 2002, she attended a Playboy casting call and has since appeared in the magazine numerous times, as well as Maxim, which named her one of the “Most Successful and Beautiful Women under 30” in 2011. Today, Deziree is a mother of three (two who are adopted), and is facing how to balance her busy life, career, and family.
Diane Gibby – Diane, a plastic surgeon, is married to Rod Rohrich, M.D., who is also a board-certified plastic surgeon. Diane is the mother of two, and in 1992, Dr. Gibby established the Women’s Center for Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery at the Medical City Hospital Complex in Dallas. Dr. Gibby’s philosophy is to help others feel the best they can about their appearance. Visual changes, she has found, are often reflected on the inside, resulting in increased confidence and self-esteem.
The Real Housewives of Dallas will air early 2013. It’s about time they took long enough!
