Aside from Bethenny Frankel, Lisa Vanderpump, and NeNe Leakes, it’s very tough to believe that anyone actually “walks away” from a Real Housewives show. It’s just such a wide-reaching platform. Who would give up that exposure? Who would give up that paycheck? Why would anyone give up those perks? Oh, that’s right: no one actually would.
Most of the time when a woman leaves Real Housewives, she thanks the fans and the network and promises that she has big ventures ahead. We all know that’s a crock of shit and is not true 99.99% of the time. It’s only accurate if you’re Bethenny or Lisa Vanderpump. This week, we found out LeeAnne Locken is “leaving” Real Housewives of Dallas after four seasons. We all saw this coming after the racially charged scandal that dominated the tail end of Season 4. In her announcement, LeeAnne shared her intent to focus on philanthropy, which is a great thing, of course. Still, it’s very unlikely that LeeAnne is the one who made the decision to exit the show. This is something RHOD alum Cary Deuber knows all too well.
After three seasons as a Housewife, Cary Deuber got replaced by her own friend, also named Kary [Brittingham]. That sure had to sting. Even so, Cary took that highly traveled road and promised us that there are more projects on the way, including some plastic surgery-focused show that never came to fruition, at least not to my knowledge anyway.
During a recent Instagram Live video, Cary answered some questions from her followers while she put on her makeup. She straight-up admitted, “Yeah, LeeAnne’s off RHOD. Fired like me.”

Finally, we hear the truth! But, let’s just be honest. That’s not surprising. Almost no one leaves these shows on their own.
I’m sure that most of the Dallas Housewives are thrilled that LeeAnne is gone. However, without LeeAnne, that means someone else has to be the new “villain” and it might be one of them. Unless there are new cast members next season. Without someone as a “villain,” we will probably yawn all season long.

As of right now, we have no idea if Kary, Stephanie Hollman, Brandi Redmond, D’Andra Simmons, and Kameron Westcott have signed on for Season 5. Brandi had a racially insensitive scandal of her own recently, but Brandi’s offensive video resurfaced after the Season 4 reunion taping, whereas LeeAnne made her remarks during (many episodes of) the show.
TELL US- ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT CARY ADMITTED THAT SHE AND LEEANNE GOT FIRED? WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE ON REAL HOUSEWIVES OF DALLAS WHEN THE SHOW RETURNS FOR SEASON 5?
