Technically speaking, Real Housewives of Dallas is an ensemble show. However, all roads led back to LeeAnne Locken for the first four seasons of the show. So, how is RHOD going to fare now that LeeAnne is gone?
Now that LeeAnne is done with the Real Housewife life, she’s spilling some tea on her former castmates. And, apparently, she’s actually friends with… wait for it, Kary Brittingham, of all people. Now that is a twist that I never saw coming, especially since LeeAnne left the show following the offensive comments she made about Kary’s Mexican heritage. How on earth did these two become friends?
Recently, a video that Brandi Redmond shared in 2017 resurfaced. In the video, she was making fun of Asians, squinting her eyes and changing the sound of her voice.
The Real Housewives of Dallas star faced backlash for the video, but she didn’t face any consequences in terms of her spot on the show. She tried to defend herself claiming that she was just trying to be humorous, which obviously didn’t go over well. Brandi even checked into some sort of wellness retreat in the wake of the scandal.
Even the fan favorites from reality television have their fair share of haters. If a show is watched by enough people, pretty much every cast member is going to have supporters and some haters who just aren’t their fans.
Teddi Mellencamp hasn’t been the most loved cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which is a nice way of putting it. For the most part, people hate on her for being “boring” or “too normal” or just not having an “interesting” storyline. Of course, there’s also that famous last name that seemingly got her in the door. And, then there’s the pot stirring, which someone has to do on every (entertaining) reality show. Is Teddi the best reality TV star of all time? No, but that’s about it. Teddi and her children have received death wishes from “fans” and that is not-at-all justified. No matter what Teddi has said and done on this show, that is really crossing the line.
Up until now, Real Housewives of Dallas has basically been The LeeAnne Locken Show. Now that she’s gone, it means that someone else ends up with that “villain” label and that the other women are going to have to step it up when it comes to providing some interesting storylines.
Rumor has it, one of the Dallas Housewives is in the midst of a divorce. Oh, and just in case you were wondering, yes, they are filming now. So, if this is the case, then we will probably see this play out when Real Housewives of Dallas returns for season 5.
The last season of Real Housewives of Dallas was, let’s face it, a mess. And a hot one at that. Not even a wedding could generate enough good karma to save the whole thing. Plus we had a Cary/Kary situation. OG Cary Deuber was demoted to a friend of and Kary Brittingham was added in her place. Unfortunately, Kary didn’t have the best first season, getting off to a rocky start with veteran LeeAnne Locken.
Speaking of LeeAnne and that rocky start. We all know LeeAnn allegedly got herself fired after spending the entire season with her xenophobia against Kary on full display. Let’s not rehash all the awful things she said because they really shouldn’t be repeated. Kary handled herself with grace but that wasn’t even enough to win fans over. They called her boring and sure, she didn’t have much of her own storyline. But was that editing or does it even matter? I like Kary and she can hold her own. And she’s definitely not boring on social media.
I’m not gonna lie, I’m still pretty shocked that Real Housewives of Dallas alums Cary Deuber and LeeAnne Locken are such good friends after the very rocky start to their relationship. Among other things, LeeAnne put Cary’s husband Mark Deuber on blast and claimed that he got his d*ck sucked at a gay bar. And better yet that she “knows the boys who did it.”
Yet, here they are on great terms. Somehow. Cary even showed up during RHOD Season 4 to co-host of LeeAnne’s many pre-wedding events. It says a lot that Cary was able to forgive LeeAnne after starting and spreading that rumor. But, maybe it’s not too crazy since Cary doesn’t actually think that LeeAnne is the origin of that drama.
It is is a tough time all around the world thanks to the Coronavirus outbreak. Many people are sick. Health professionals are working hard around the clock. So many businesses have closed, leaving many people without a paycheck.
However, that’s not the case for the Hollman Lockers employees. Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman’s husband Travis Hollman has pledged to pay all of his employees their normal salaries even though many of them are confined to their homes in quarantine.
By now, Real Housewives of Dallas fans know that LeeAnne Locken will not be on the show for Season 5. That really isn’t much of a surpise considering the way Season 4 ended. It was basically LeeAnne vs. everyone, including Andy Cohen, at the reunion. And for good reason too.
LeeAnne was under fire for making racially insensitive comments about Kary Brittingham, during multiple episodes. It just did not seem at all likely that LeeAnne could return to the show. Not in 2020, that’s for sure. Nevertheless, we can’t ignore that pretty much every (interesting) storyline was driven by LeeAnne. They really need to step things up when it comes to casting RHOD Season 5.
