Tiffany Moon, M.D. graced the screen as the newest member of “The Real Housewives of Dallas” and quickly became a fan favorite for her kind attitude and cheerfulness. In 2021 she joined season 5, but the lone–star had a short-lived Bravo career. The show was placed on hiatus after wrapping up the season. Now word on the street is that the Peacock network is working on reviving the series for season 6.
It’s no secret Moon had a complicated relationship with the ladies. While filming she shared that she had never had a group of girlfriends before, so joining a group of girls, housewives, was sure to be a challenge. It was evident that she felt uncomfortable during many of the cast outings. It was as if she was forcing herself to have a good time, and to be honest it was cringy to watch at times.
One thing you might say kept her on the show was the platform. Moon used several moments throughout the show to raise awareness for violence against the AAPI community. We see the efforts across the pond, in Beverly Hills, with Real Housewife Crystal Kung Minkoff. Moon took the opportunity, as an Asian American immigrant, to share her culture with the ladies and the viewers.
Early in the season Moon was excited to host the ladies for dim sum, a traditional Chinese meal. Those southern ladies were not prepared, or appreciative for traditional Chinese food, most noticeably, chicken feet. Little did Moon know it would be used as a weapon throughout the season. Their poor manners left Moon unimpressed; we’re looking at you Kameron Westcott.
Moon and Westcott engaged in a lengthy twitter feud. The Westcott’s really showed their colors as they spewed hate, during a time that Asian Americans faced violence at a record high. It’s normal for housewives to fall into twitter wars, but things got awkward when Kameron’s husband, Court Westcott, and brother-in-law Chart Westcott, joined in on the tweets.
Court Westcott tweeted, “‘Anti-racism’ is racism. It discriminates by the color of one’s skin. They tried that once in Germany, it did not work out well. I don’t understand how many of your patients would be comfortable with you treating them with your open vile racism [sic].” According to Page Six Court Westcott has since deleted his Twitter account.
His brother Chart alleged in a tweet, “I’ve spoken to her twice, once when she was blackout drunk at my house but needed to get home for early work. Wonder if she had a hangover while working on her patients?”
Moon took action against the defamatory tweets and her lawyer told Variety in a statement “The insinuations the Westcotts made in those tweets are reckless, defamatory and applying. Dr. Moon is a professional in every sense of the word and is deserving of the excellent reputation that she’s earned as a physician and as a hard working mother. These attacks on her character will not be tolerated. The Westcotts would be well advised to keep mentions of Dr. Moon out of their social media feeds.”
Bravo denounced the Westcotts horrific tweets “Bravo strongly supports the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Anti-Racism is, in fact, not a form of racism and the network stands by Dr. Tiffany Moon and her advocacy against racism and violence.”
With rumors going around that Peacock might pick up the series for season 6, fans quickly called on Moon to help revive the series. Moon responded, but to their dissatisfaction, she’ll “politely decline” returning to RHOD.
