The Real Housewives of Dallas premieres in about a week. If you’re anything like me, in a state of excited anticipation, you’ve been devouring anything and everything related to the show. Which is why I was curious to see the Spring 2016 issue of Dallas Hotel Magazine, whose cover story, written by Cynthia Smoot, is about the housewives. It was there, on page 33, that I read the following about housewife Tiffany Hendra: “Tiffany has a troubling past from her time in the limelight, but with her unwavering faith and growing foundation in Dallas, this Asian-American spitfire hopes to create her own voice and rediscover her roots.” That passage was lifted word for word from the Bravo site.
Listen, I don’t want to overreact. But Dallas Hotel Magazine was once considered one of the finest hotel magazines in the country. If Graydon Carter could see what has become of it today, he would weep. This is an outrage.
