Real Housewives

Two new iterations of Bravo’s Real Housewives series will premiere in 2016--and one is set in our fair city. Until the official airdate is announced, go ahead and speculate about which of our lovely celebutantes will be featured.

Better Roads

All the roads in the city will finally be repaved by September 2016. (Let’s hope the next ice apocalypse doesn’t ruin them.)

New Stores

Diptyque Paris is slated to open at NorthPark Center in April. And Ikea has finalized its plans for a new store in Grand Prairie, set to open in August, which means we won’t have a reason to go to Frisco anymore.
