Stephanie Hollman overcame a strain in her marriage

Stephanie Hollman knows wealth is more than just money. Her goal when joining Real Housewives of Dallas was to "shine a light on important issues of domestic violence prevention and the importance of mentoring girls and boys to empower them to make positive, educated choices," as Stephanie wrote on her blog. The Bravo star has made it her mission to show the "powerful impact of kindness" through the reality TV platform, while also bringing "humor and silliness to lighten life's load." 

Yet even Stephanie has to get serious on-camera. The blonde beauty opened up about fighting with pal Brandi Redmond during Season 2, and acknowledged the toll RHOD has taken on her marriage to husband Travis Hollman, prompting them to go back to couples therapy.

"I've always been nervous about filming something that [personal] because I just feel like some things like marriage and relationships, I don't know if I'm ready to have a whole group of people judge my marriage like any more than they already do," Stephanie told Life & Style. "It is hard on a marriage, I'm not going to lie. I didn't want to lose sight of what is important." 

The Hollman family is still going strong, and thanks to Stephanie's honest portrayals of marriage, motherhood, charity, and friendship on-screen, it's no wonder she's a fan favorite!
