DALLAS -- When it comes to life in the the Big D, we tend to do things bigger and better! We hold the title of the best skyline and we even broke records for the WWE. So living here in Dallas has to be, ahem, larger than life. But, is it made for the whole reality TV thing?

NewsFix sat down with LeeAnne Locken and Tiffany Hendra of Bravo's Real Housewives of Dallas.

"Dallas is a character in its own; we're so proud that this show has come to Dallas now," said Hendra.

By now, you're probably thinking what we are, what in the heck makes you a made-for-TV housewife?

"To be on a reality show, I think it takes your authentic self. Now, that means that you've got to be willing to show the good the bad and the OMG ugly," explained Locken.

On the other hand, Hendra believes, "You have to have an interesting life, a life that people can aspire to or be turned off from."

The Houston natives are putting on their boots and taking on the city.

"I've been gone for 16 years and we've moved here together in '94," Hendra explained.

Despite the scripted secrets of reality television, these ladies claim they're as "real" as they come. So "real," that Hendra has already addressed pornography rumors that have the Internet buzzing.

"I was an actress in Hollywood, and I did some topless love scenes on a show and people were calling me a porn-star the day after our announcement -- so I was ready for it," Hendra explained.

Although LeeAnne isn't a housewife (yet), she says she still can hang with the best of' em!

"I think they might be a little frightened of me, which they admit and they clearly say it on the show," Locken added.

But besides the drama, cat-fights -- you know the stuff that make us tune in every week -- the ladies vow to shed a positive light on Dallas.

"For me, it's a chance to showcase some of these charities that have never had a voice or platform," Locken said.

So how "real" do things get for these wives? Guess we'll all have to to tune in Monday night!
