Big Rich Texas, Season 2, Episode 4 Recap (3-11-12)

Last week on Style Network's Big Rich Texas, viewers were left with an uneasy feeling when Melissa was super-cryptic about her pageant history, revealing only that she was Miss Carrollton and Miss Dallas but refusing to provide even the most basic information about her reign.

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 9 Recap (09/25/11)

Episode 9 of Style Network’s Big Rich Texas begins at Leslie’s partially furnished rental where Whitney and Tyler are curled up on the sofa in the middle of the day, surrounded by empty liquor bottles. Leslie, freshly showered and exuding a sense of productivity, urges the couple to get the Hell up. Next, we’re at Pamela’s house where her husband, Ignacio, has traded in his paintbrush for a pair of clipping shears. He’s listening to 18 year old Hannah whine about not having enough “Hannah time” as he snips individual stems and places them in a crystal vase. Pamela enters and instead of telling Hannah to shut up, she agrees to let her hire an assistant to lighten the work load. Hey, how about Ignacio? He could probably do the job and still squeeze in some floral arranging time. Meanwhile, Kalyn and Leslie are cruisin’ in the Vette with the top down. They’re on their way to meet Bonnie at Highland Park Village, a good 30 minute drive on the interstate in 90 degree heat.
