7 Things You Need to Know About Heidi Effin' Dillon

Because after that Gothic State Fair, we know you have questions. 

Bow Down Bitches, It's Heidi Effin' Dillon

If anyone knows how to make an entrance, it's Texas socialite Heidi Dillon. In case you missed it, the woman sauntered onto The Real Housewives of Dallas literally dripping in Chanel, black stiletto nails (with bright pink accents) and an “I don’t give a f---“ attitude that rivals Erika Jayne. Between this look and her Gothic State Fair themed party - yes, that was the actual theme - we are desperate to be one of her “skanks.” But in the meantime, as we await our bedazzled shirts, we have gathered everything you need to know about this Dallas diva. Because who doesn't need to know everything about a woman who can rock a gold chain this hard in her 60s? 

How to Watch

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

1. She actually goes by Heidi F---ing Dillon

When Tiffany Hendra said, bow down it's Heidi Effin' Dillon, she wasn't kidding. Not only does she have these feisty initials monogrammed above - it's her Instagram name, too!  

2. She really did study make up with celebrity make up artist Scott Barnes

So when she said she's "into make up," she was just downplaying her studies with this make up artist to the stars. Also, Heidi's website totes this comment about her makeup skills: "Now she enjoys 'beating' the faces of Dallas’ most beautiful ladies." Perfection. 

3. She's a seriously loves Mo$chino

5. She really is the queen of the Dallas charity scene

According to, since arriving in Dallas 22 years ago, Heidi has been a key member of the charity world - even founding the non-profit, The Fashionistas. This is the organization, if you may remember, LeeAnne Locken, Marie Reyes and Taylor Garrett sat on the board for. 

6. She plays the drums

Just check out her Twitter cover photo, if this tweet isn't enough proof for you. 

7. She's been gal pals with Housewife LeeAnne for over 10 years

Ah, true friendship. May we all find our Heidi Dillons to our LeeAnne Lockens.
