Dee Simmons Opens up About Her Late Husband

Tragedy can sometimes tear people apart, but in the case of D'Andra Simmons and her mother, Dee Simmons (who's affectionately known as Momma Dee), it seems to have brought them closer together.

How to Watch

Catch up on The Real Housewives of Dallas on Peacock or the Bravo App.

The Real Housewives of Dallas' mother-daughter duo visited the grave of D'Andra's late father, Glenn Simmons, on Wednesday, March 6 in honor of the sixth anniversary of his passing. "Today is a very special day. I actually spent the morning with my mother. We went to Daddy's gravesite and today would have been the, actually it's the sixth anniversary of his death in 2013," D'Andra shared in her Instagram Story. "And we just shared a really nice mother-daughter time and talked about how much we missed him and how much we loved him and how we're getting along right now."

D'Andra said that the experience prompted her and her mother to think about how they're going to move forward in their relationship, including a commitment to "spend more time together and just really have a lot more mother-daughter moments together." "So it was a really special day," D'Andra said. "We got to celebrate Daddy and tell him how much we loved him. I hope he was listening from Heaven. I'm sure he was."

D'Andra thanked fans for their support after opening up about the loss of her father, which we haven't seen her do much on RHOD. "Thank you all for the DMs, private messages, calls, and texts I have received today. The loss of my father Glenn Simmons was a heartache I was never prepared for," D'Andra tweeted. "I’m so blessed to have spent time with my mother #MommaDee today, we even sat out by his grave and talked to him."

D'Andra even received love from some familiar faces to Real Housewives fans. "Praying for you sis," The Real Housewives of Potomac's Monique Samuels tweeted. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Claudia Jordan also tweeted to D'Andra, "I'm so sorry for the loss of your father. Prayers up to you and your family. May he rest in PARADISE."

Momma Dee gave RHOD fans a better idea of the man her late husband was during an interview with The Daily Dish last year. "My late husband, Glenn Simmons, was probably the most amazing man I've ever, ever known in my life," she shared (clip above). "Everyone looked at him as the kindest, [gentlest] soul they've ever known."
