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.
During the coronavirus outbreak, some Bravo stars have stepped up to help others. Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel donated corona kits and 10,000 face masks. Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman’s spouse, Travis Hollman, decided to pay all of his employees their salaries, while they’re are quarantined at home.
Teddi Mellencamp, who is a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has pledged to help keep fans accountable by offering free online workouts. If I worked out regularly, that would be fantastic!
Claudia Jordan is gone from housewives but clearly not forgotten. The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member was only on for one season but made quite an impact when she famously went toe-to-toe with OG NeNe Leakes. But for some reason, Claudia just didn’t fit on the show. She made a quick exit before we even really got a chance to know her. I actually really liked her. Anyone who could show up on their first season and read NeNe has my adoration forever. Maybe she didn’t have the most interesting story line (ok, she didn’t really have one at all). Still, I thought she brought some much needed sanity to the show. I think every franchise needs one level headed housewife that seems grounded in actual reality.
Is Kary Brittingham that housewife on Real Housewives of Dallas? Honestly, I don’t know considering how new she is. She doesn’t seem to resonate with fans, despite gracefully handling now defunct cast mate LeeAnne Locken’s relentless attacks on her ethnicity.
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.
It’s not exactly “news” at this point since so many entertainment productions and businesses have shut down thanks to the threat of Coronavirus, but we can officially add the Broadway play Chicago to that list.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Erika Jayne posted about the end of her Broadway.
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.
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.
It is surprising/not surprising that LeeAnne Locken is done with Real Housewives of Dallas. After making multiple remarks about Mexicans last season, it seemed like the writing was on the wall. Still, LeeAnne was Real Housewives of Dallas. Almost every (interesting) storyline started or ended with LeeAnne. Then again, it would be almost impossible for the show to move forward in the wake of the racially charged scandal.
At this moment, it hasn’t been confirmed if LeeAnne actually walked away from the reality TV series (which is doubtful) or if the network fired her. No shade, but it’s fair to assume it’s the latter since almost no one would give up the exposure and paycheck that come with the Real Housewives platform. Not only that, but Andy Cohen just seemed so tired of her during the Season 4 RHOD reunion episodes and he even made some remarks during his own latenight talk show, Watch What Happens Live.
