Is Stephanie Hollman pro Donald Trump? Here's why ‘RHOD’ star and husband donated to anti-Muslim politician
The Texas-based couple did donate to Beth Van Duyne's campaign after her reputation of anti-Muslim hate became public
Sarah Galli, host of the popular Bravocentric podcast ‘Andy's Girls’ recently shared a list of every cast member of the Real Housewives franchises who had yet to acknowledge the results of the 2020 presidential election-Joe Biden's win against Donald Trump, leading people to question where the affiliations of these reality stars really lie. Galli captioned the post, “Housewives who *haven’t* acknowledged the Presidential election results while posting about their parties, meals, and shoes. Some of y’all have asked why this even matters. I answered that Q,” which consisted of two pictures, one was the list of housewives from all franchises and second was her opinion about why it was important to know what and who they support. Among the list of ‘Real Housewives of Dallas’ stars was the name, Stephanie Hollman.
In August 2019, ‘RHOD’ star Hollman and her husband Travis Hollman, both made four contributions of $2,800 for a total of $22,400 toward Republican Beth Van Duyne’s run for Congress in 2020.
Galli also explained why she wrote the post, “This is about Bravolebs with enormous platforms (and followers who likely veer MAGA) choosing to participate in the genuinely dangerous route of pretending the results aren’t valid. It's always fascinating to see which HW's beg off of talking politics because they either don't want their political views to be widely known or don't want to alienate fans. But this wasn't about that. This was about a political party and sitting President trying to undo the very nature of our democracy. I wanted to know who was comfortable with that stance. It just so happens that the vast majority, if not all, of those listed are seen as politically conservative, or 'not politically active' except for their publicly available political contributions."
Galli and a group of other Bravo podcasters and fan accounts led a boycott of 'Real Housewives Of Orange County' over the continued casting of Kelly Dodd, who joined the MAGA camp after becoming romantically involved with and recently marrying the Fox News correspondent Rick Leventhal. Dodd regularly repeats anti-mask rhetoric that's a threat to public safety and has lobbied against the Black Lives Matter movement. LeeAnne Locken from ‘Real Housewives of Dallas’ made derogatory comments toward fellow housewife Kary Brittingham during Season 4 and fans called for her removal. Even host Andy Cohen referred to the comments as “vile” and “disgusting.”
Additionally, a video resurfaced of 'RHOD' star Brandi Redmond mocking Asians with her children sitting behind her. News of Hollman's 2019 donations come to mind after Galli's post where Hollman and her husband donated to a politician despite her reputation for being anti-Muslim.
Beth Van Duyne, the Republican politician, was the mayor of Irving, Texas, from 2011 until 2017 when Trump appointed her as a regional administrator for the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. During her mayoral run, Van Duyne came under fire when she pushed for support of a bill that would ban the Muslim code of law and morality, following a false claim. She also made anti-Muslim statements criticizing a 14-year-old who was suspended from school for bringing in a homemade alarm clock.
It’s unclear why the two support her and what their relation is to the politician. However, the Texas-based couple did donate to her campaign after her reputation of anti-Muslim hate became public. Travis regularly shares articles or tweets in support of President Donald Trump and his policies but we have no proof whether Hollman is pro-Trump. However, it's quite a mystery as to why she hasn't acknowledged President-elect Joe Biden till now.
