The Real Housewives of Dallas might not have the ratings or the fan following of some of the older shows in the franchise, but they reign in one area: No one is divorced yet.

The divorce rate for RHOD is a big old goose egg at zero percent. (I guess E News didn't count the reported split of the BFF couple that Dallas fans love: Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman.)

Our ladies premiere their second season on Monday, Aug. 14, at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

A criticism of the Housewives franchise has long been that it's misnamed since some of the featured women are not wives at all. (May I present a theory that common-law counts?) 

'Real Housewives of Dallas' will return with two new cast members on Monday, Aug. 14

But Dallas is big ups in that area, too: Both new cast members, D'Andra Simmons and Kameron Westcott? Married. And first-season jaw-dropping moment when Brandi Redmond's husband Bryan walked out on her mid-dinner aside, she can still rock a "Mrs." T-shirt.

Busy LeeAnne Locken, who hinted a lot in the first season, has yet to tie a knot but her chances look good. That is, as long as she doesn't move to The O.C. with its divorce rate of 100 percent.

According to E News, which also crunched the numbers in 2014, the overall divorce rate for the entire franchise stands at 35 percent.

This round of number-crunching seems to have been prompted by Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps' announcement of her pending divorce from husband Tom D'Agostino via Twitter. 

The pair had been married seven months.
