Dallas Dos and Don'ts

Episode 4: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor learned a lot during Courtney's etiquette lesson.

Sep 5, 20110

So many charity events, so little time! Will all the good karma they've racked up help our singles find love? Let's see what lessons they can give us while they're giving back.

DO: Be a Southern belle

Dallas is all about tradition. And, as Courtney points out, that tradition means that your childhood likely will include pageants, cheer leading, and big hair. The intense training on the path to becoming a lady is laden with useful tips as we learned from Courtney and Tara's lunch -- A fork goes on the left because it has four letters and the knife and spoon go on the right they have five letters.

DO: Get involved in charity work

In Dallas charity work extends way beyond the volunteer hours you had to rack up to be in honor society in high school. All eligible singles seem to be giving back in some way, whether it be taking off your shirt at last week's bachelor auction, throwing '70s themed fundraiser fetes, or donating to great causes like DIFFA.

DON'T: Be ashamed to go bald

As Glenn says, "I'm not going bald, I'm just getting more head."

DO: Have a roof

A guy's best wingman? A rooftop with a view. Rather than sound sleazy by inviting ladies to his boudoir for some alone time, Glenn prefers to take girls up to the roof to see the view of Dallas. The romantic setting only helps increase the likelihood of romantic success. I guess Matt is just a close second in the wingman rankings.

Having been raised by a Southern Belle....(my grandmother) In fact Belle was literally her middle name...Courtney needs to go back to charm school and learn some good old Southern ettiquette and hospitality. I was born and bred in Chicago and am a Yankee through and through and act much kinder than she does towards her "friends". Is she truly Tara's friend? She strikes me as the type of woman that surrounds herself with men and has absolutely no girlfriends. My southern Grandmother warned me never to trust a lady who has no lady friends. Sorry Court. I hope watching yourself in action might hopefully be a wakeup call for you to open your heart and be KIND TO OTHERS.

I love this show! The vanity, insecurity & all of it. Drew was practically begging Courtney to be his friend. Major issues there. PLease give us a 2nd season.

Please take this thing off the air! I LOVE Bravo and can usually watch anything-- some I am addicted to and will never miss. This most douchebaggery Dallas, can't!!! I was born in Dallas and still have alot of family in Dallas and still live close to Dallas and visit often. This is the biggest waste of film I have seen in a long time. I even tried watching more than one episode to at least try to give it chance but I knew after the 1st comment about "Dallas being a small town", the sad thing was more than one of them said the same thing. These people live in their own small world that very few people would want to be involved with. The ONLY thing I can appreciate about anything I have seen is the fact that it has brought light to Paws in the City which is a GREAT charity. So everything has it's purpose.
