Dallas Gets Socialite Reality Show

Let the exaggerated stereotypes begin!

If you were feeling like you’d gotten snubbed to a $300-a-ticket fundraiser for juvenile arthritis from your new best friend of two weeks when the new Real Housewives series went to New Jersey, fear not. Dallas’ unique cultural quirks and high society sturm und drang are officially reality show worthy.

A new show from the Style Network, “Mothers and Daughters of Dallas,” will feature four sets of mothers and daughters and the travails and victories they face keeping up appearances and going shopping.

The glitzy, self-assured Texan stereotype attracted the makers of the show.

"Everything is bigger in Texas -- the attitudes, the hair, the jewelry and the lavish lifestyles that bond these mothers and daughters," said Salaam Coleman Smith, president of Style, reports Reuters. "Viewers will get to know the funny, outrageous and obsessive mothers and daughters at the top of the Dallas social scene and will go inside a world that that has not been explored before.”

Apparently the network hosted a casting call in October of last year, and the show will air this fall. Who the stars will be -- and more importantly who will be the Heidi and Spencer -- have not been divulged.
