Big Rich Texas, Season 2, Episode 3 Recap (3-4-12)

This week’s episode of Big Rich Texas probably sparked a DEFCON 5 phone call by Rick Perry to an intern who immediately screeched up on two wheels at Bonnie’s pad, threw a sac over Whitney’s head and then dumped her across state lines with a warning never to return. But even if that mission was a success, you can’t un-ring a bell. So viewers worldwide could possibly be under the impression that Whitney Whatley is an adequate representation of Texas. And that Dallas is run by the Fashionistas' founder Heidi Dillon, and/or that Pamela Martin-Duarte plays a key role in setting the style for our city.

Big Rich Texas, Episode 8 Recap (09/18/11)

Episode 8 of Style Network’s Big Rich Texas begins with an admirable dedication to consistency with Pamela Martin Duarte still wearing old lady clothes and awkwardly laughing at her own jokes. This week Duarte finds out that a computer has matched her with Bonnie for a golf tournament. This must be the computer at production headquarters that computes which scenario will generate the biggest catfight.

Big Rich Texas, Episode 6 Recap (08/28/11)

Episode 6 of Style Network's Big Rich Texas begins on the golf course where Bonnie is at the wheel. Leslie is riding shotgun when she sees AJ the golf pro and asks Bonnie to pull over behind a tree so they can stalk him. At first I thought she felt the need to hide because she had a school girl crush and was embarrassed. But then I remembered how the women sexually harassed him in episode 2 and I realized, she’s hiding so he doesn’t run away, busting through the chain-link thug prevention fence.

Big Rich Texas, Episode 5 Recap (08/14/11)

Last week on Style Network's Big Rich Texas, Bonnie tried to have Pamela murdered and Grace slammed people on the ground with some killer martial arts moves. Too bad we couldn’t save those maneuvers for episode 5, to use on Kalyn who should be thanking her lucky stars she’s not working a drive-thru lane in Apple Valley, California.

Big Rich Texas, Episode 4 Recap (08/07/11)

It hit me during episode 4 of Style Network’s Big Rich Texas that this isn’t a TV show, it’s an infomercial. This week viewers were introduced to one of Bonnie’s businesses, My Mystery Party, a refreshing change from Used Couture By Connie and Leslie’s Pageant Boot Camp. But even though it seems each cast member will have plenty of time to peddle products, it’s so unfair that Pamela’s Evil Consulting Agency gets so much more airtime than the others.

Big Rich Texas, Episode 3 Recap (07/31/11)

Last week on Big Rich Texas, beauty pageants were won and golf instructors were humiliated. Where else could Style Network possibly go to give viewers the impression that ladies in Dallas drink the blood of poor people for breakfast? To a fashion show in Uptown and a Collin County backyard full of Greek statues, that’s where.

Big Rich Texas, Episode 2 Recap (07/24/11)

Style Network starts episode 2 of Big Rich Texas with Leslie, a good choice because we hated her far less than some of the others at the end of last week’s premiere. But that's no big surprise-we totally loved her on season 3, episode 5 of Millionaire Matchmaker. Sorry that didn’t work out, Leslie. But as a refresher, Leslie had just moved to Texas from California and scored a membership at the Woodhaven Country Club in Fort Worth. Since she’s new to the area, producers were able to trick her into believing the club is: 1. in Dallas 2. super exclusive
