Well, rumor has it that Rip expected Leslie to give up Big Rich Texas once they were married, and she refused. Ouch! “He wanted her to leave the show and settle down,” an inside source told RadarOnline. “Unfortunately that was a deal breaker."
Leslie's rep, Dominic Friesen told the site, “Leslie is heartbroken but made the decision with both their best interests in mind," adding, "The pair remain friends and Rip is supportive of Leslie’s focus on motherhood and her career.”
Have no fear, Big Rich Texas fans; we could still see one (or more!) beautiful weddings next season. Melissa Poe just recently became engaged to Doug Carson, and they're planning a September wedding. Kalyn Braun and Paul Lewis and Whitney Whatley and Brandon "Booger" Overbey are set to be married this year also.
Speaking of my favorite Big Rich Texas couple, I'm anxiously awaiting baby news from Whitney and Booger! Any day now!
