Two New Housewives Reportedly Added To Real Housewives of Dallas

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.

Cary Deuber Thinks Brandi Redmond Started Gay Rumor About Her Husband; Wouldn’t Return To Real Housewives Of Dallas Because Of The Current Cast

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.

Travis Hollman Stephanie Hollman RHOD Real Housewives Of Dallas

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.

Andy Cohen Says Real Housewives Of Dallas Wouldn’t Have Lasted If It Wasn’t For LeeAnne Locken

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.

LeeAnne Locken & Cary Deuber Make Amends On RHOD

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.

Kary Brittingham D'Andra Simmons Real Housewives Of Dallas

Real Housewives Of Dallas came to an end last night in a dramatic and intense reunion focused on whether or not LeeAnne Locken is racist.

We all knew that the bulk of Part 2 was going to be spent on this subject. So after D’Andra Simmons was given a platform to gush about turning around Hard Night Good Morning and salvaging her relationship with Mama Dee, Andy Cohen got right into the matter of LeeAnne’s behavior in Thailand and the racially charged comments she made about Kary Brittingham.

First of all, Andy is FED. UP! I’ve never seen him so combative or out and out confrontational towards a Real Housewife as he was with LeeAnne last night. Of course, LeeAnne was trying to blame production for everything she did, and if there’s one thing Andy despises it’s a Housewife who tries to blame Bravo for her actions. I’m surprised LeeAnne didn’t accuse editing of dubbing the phrase “chirpy Mexican” into her mouth.

LeeAnne Locken Brandi Redmond Stephanie Hollman

Just like this show as a whole, Part 2 of the Real Housewives of Dallas reunion is all about LeeAnne Locken. Of course, we will revisit the L’Infinity dress debacle. D’Andra Simmons and Kary Brittingham can’t face too much heat for this, right? Especially considering the real issue of the season: LeeAnne’s comments about Kary and her Mexican heritage.

Sure, we have this non-feud between Stephanie Hollman and Kameron Westcott that earned them seats right next to Andy Cohen, but when it comes down to it, this is the LeeAnne Show, like it or not. Tonight is gonna be full of heavy topics, I’m sure: mainly these incredibly insensitive remarks from LeeAnne. The video of Brandi Redmond seemingly mocking Asians surfaced after the reunion finished taping.

Brandi Redmond

Brandi Redmond is definitely one of those Real Housewives who isn’t afraid of letting it all hang out. During the first seasons of the Real Housewives of Dallas, she and BFF Stephanie Hollman often engaged in goofy escapades, sometimes amusing, sometimes not. This season, for the most part, Brandi was a little more reserved and her behavior was not as overtly attention-seeking.

Somehow, Brandi even managed to maintain a cordial relationship with messy LeeAnne Locken. Considering their track record, this was nothing short of miraculous. By Part 1 of the cast reunion, their relationship had soured and in upcoming previews, Brandi appears to call out LeeAnne for her racially-tinged comments directed towards Kary Brittingham  in Thailand. Recently, however, a video surfaced of Brandi engaging in some inappropriate behavior of a similarly questionable nature.
