Do you ever wonder how rumors get started? While some seem like they could be, at least, rooted in the truth, others seem so far-fetched that you wonder whatever sparked the notion. Like the one about Kacey Musgraves joining the cast of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Dallas.”
Apparently, fans of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards heard that the “Follow Your Arrow” singer would be joining the Dallas cast of “Housewives.” In response, they tweeted, “Kacey Musgraves is joining #RHOD!! The singer revealed to us exclusively that she has inked a deal with the production company and @Bravotv for season 3!! She will be joining the entire returning cast next year! Congrats @KaceyMusgraves!”
Hmmmm … is that really a thing you would offer congratulations for, or condolences?
We kid, we kid! #GuiltyPleasure
Of course, Kacey quickly dismissed the rumor with her own tweet saying, “Oh really? News to me. #nothappening #doesntevenmakesense”
As her last hashtag implies, it doesn’t really make sense, especially since Kacey and husband Ruston Kelly live in Nashville. Even if the show was grandfathering her in because of her Lone Star State roots, Kacey’s hometown is still nearly 100 miles from Dallas.
Are you familiar with the term “sniff test?” It basically means that if something is questionable, like a rumor, you dig a little deeper to determine the viability or legitimacy of it. So we put this rumor to a brief sniff test and uncovered … nothing. We have Kacey with the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders when she appeared on their CMT show, and then again when they appeared at Kacey’s show at the State Fair of Texas in 2016.
OK, dang! That was a fun trip down memory lane, but still, no connections to “Real Housewives of Dallas,” Beverly Hills, Nashville or anywhere else.
That’s OK, though. As beautiful as all of the housewives are, and as exciting as their lives might be, we’re happy to keep Kacey in our little country music world, and it looks like she’s going to be plenty busy in it anyway. The sweet and sassy brunette beauty will be releasing her fourth studio album, “Golden Hour,” sometime this year. In February, she’ll be out on the road with Little Big Town and Midland on “The Breakers Tour” before taking a break to cross the pond to perform at the C2C: Country to Country Festival in Dublin, London and Glasgow. Kacey will then return to the States and pick right back up with Little Big Town for shows that continue into May.
Kacey will be peppering her tour schedule with performances at a variety of fairs and festivals throughout the summer, and in June she’ll start a really unique run of dates with pop star Harry Styles.
Who needs a TV series with that many great opportunities to catch Kacey Musgraves live?
