Brandi Redmond, the reality star famed for Real Housewives of Dallas, had an emotional moment on Tuesday’s reunion special show while she recalled last year’s car accident that killed her mother-in-law on impact.
The 42-year-old tearfully described the crash that killed her husband Bryan Redmond’s mother Jill Marie Redmond and left her 9-year-old daughter Brinkley injured.
“They went out to see my sister-in-law’s kids and they were leaving her neighborhood and they were hit by an 18-wheeler and they were drug and the car flipped and then the truck, the 18-wheeler fell on top of them and completely smushed the car,” she shared with the group.
She continued, “And [Jill] died — from what we know — on impact, and Brinkley, by the grace of God, made it and it’s crazy because she’s perfect. And she had some broken bones and a little of bit of scratches, but they don’t even know how she survived. But she did.”
Brandi and Bryan Redmond began dating while still in high school. After getting married in 2003, they have four children together- daughters Brinkley, Brooklyn, 11, and Brilynn, 2 months, and son Bruin, 2.
Amid the accident, the couple has been hounded with a video of her husband allegedly cheating on her.
Addressing the video, she told host Andy Cohen on the “RHOD” special, “I’m disappointed that I’m aware of when that happened. It was in Las Vegas during a dual bachelor/ bachelorette party for my sister and brother-in-law. But yeah, I’m extremely disappointed.”
When Cohen asked if she is thinking of staying married to Bryan, she replied,” I will tell you that, you know, this was the craziest year and my darkest hour. That man was there for me and is there for me, so I feel like I would be really a piece of s–t if I didn’t, you know, be there for him because he’s hurting too right now.”
Brandi Redmond is a reality TV star by profession and American by nationality. She is well known for starring in Bravo TV’s reality TV show The Real Housewives of Dallas (RHOD).
