Congratulations to LeeAnne Locken and Rich Emberlin! The Real Housewives of Dallas couple tied the knot on Saturday, April 27. And, it seems like they filmed the big day for Season 4. Or at least I hope they did since there were plenty of cast members present.
Plus, they did get engaged on the show. Why wouldn’t she film the wedding for next season? Especially after D’Andra Simmons and Brandi Redmond said it was never going to happen. And, no, it doesn’t seem like they attended. Or maybe they just kept the photos on the wraps for the sake of a storyline. But, it was most likely the first scenario.
Real Housewives of Dallas star LeeAnne Locken got engaged to Rich Emberlin two seasons ago. Last season, D’Andra Simmons gave her a hard time about setting the date… among other things. Now, the future Mr. and Mrs. Emberlin have a date and they are moving full speed ahead with the pre-wedding events.
Fellow RHOD cast member Kameron Westcott even threw the wedding shower. It was a co-ed affair with significant others included. However, not everyone in the cast made the cut since it was a private event with about twenty people. Who was there? Who wasn’t? How did everything look?
LeeAnne Locken made some big changes during Real Housewives of Dallas Season 3. LeeAnne became friends with Cary Deuber and Stephanie Hollman after two seasons of feuding. Rich Emberlin and LeeAnne finally set a wedding date. She created a dress that can be worn in 175 ways. LeeAnne really made some strides.
Unfortunately, some of the changes and LeeAnne’s life were not positive. The viewers witnessed the demise of LeeAnne and D’Andra Simmons’ close friendship. And overall, the more things change, the more they stay the same. In this case, I’m talking about the never-ending strife between LeeAnne and Brandi Redmond.
Last night was part two of the Real Housewives Of Dallas reunion which also marked the official end of season 3. I have to say of all the Real Housewives franchises, this one is still my favorite.
Sure, Real Housewives Of Dallas could use some tweaking – like please no more Brandi Redmond vs. LeeAnne Locken feuds dominating every season Whew! We have had enough! Having LeeAnne and Brandi become BFF would be totally insincere and producer-driven. I’d like to see them settle into an acquaintanceship where they can have fun together socially (or at least be civil) and leave it at that.
I’d also love to see D’Andra Simmons go back in time and recognize it’s a wig she’s wearing on her head, not a crown, so there is no need to start petty drama with LeeAnne! Those two are much better as friends. They balance each other and have a great dynamic. This season D’Andra got too big for her britches and LeeAnne’s britches already have L’infinity egos.
The ladies of Real Housewives Of Dallas entered the ring with their guns blazing, their stilettos sharpened like razors, and their eyes shooting daggers through the 64 layers of wet look eyeshadow. Their dresses are designed to blind, confuse, and kill as all the sequins reflect off everyone’s egos causing insanity.
I actually think Andy Cohen was on fire last night and was a great moderator; pushing back against the nastiness and crap.
This reunion is all about D’Andra Simmons, and her feuds with literally everyone. Which is apt because the very first thing that was discussed was Beaver Creek and the fight D’Andra had with LeeAnne Locken over who is the queen of Real Housewives Of Dallas.
It’s Travis Hollman‘s frat party so everyone can fight and cry and scream if they want to on Real Housewives Of Dallas. LeeAnne Locken and Brandi Redmond certainly did.
I just don’t even know where to begin. Who provoked whom, who started what, who did such and such illegal thing… Brandi and LeeAnne are a two-headed snake biting its own tail after getting confused by all the excess weave hair in their faces. They should just go to couples therapy and be done with it. I can’t pick a winner or a loser here. Well, I can pick a winner, but it’s Stephanie Hollman. Stephanie ‘PH–king’ Hollman.
However, so many good things did happen for the ladies of Dallas last night! Stephanie bought a foam machine. LeeAnne picked a date and wedding location. D’Andra Simmons got a company. Woot!
The first two seasons of Real Housewives of Dallas centered around LeeAnne Locken’s beef with Brandi Redmond. In Season 3, LeeAnne’s ex-best friend D’Andra Simmons joined Brandi’s side and the two of them have argued with LeeAnne in almost every episode.
D’Andra questioned LeeAnne’s fiance’s fidelity. Brandi accused LeeAnne of being jealous of D’Andra. They both wondered if LeeAnne and Rich Emberlin were actually getting married, as if it was somehow offensive or remotely affected their lives. LeeAnne has called them both out for drinking and she even used the word “alcoholic” to describe Brandi. Needless to say, the reunion is bound to get messy. Then again, the past two seasons of this show have truly delivered so that’s not at all surprising.
Is LeeAnne Locken and D’Andra Simmons’ friendship over for good? At the beginning of Real Housewives of Dallas Season 3, it just seemed like the two were in the middle of a rough patch resulting from some miscommunications. Now it seems much worse than that.
D’Andra accused LeeAnne’s fiance Rich Emberlin of cheating on her and claimed that they “lived separate lives.” LeeAnne accused D’Andra of “drinking too much” and being drunk at charity events. D’Andra did not show up to shop for LeeAnne’s wedding dress shopping trip during the last episode, but she claims that she wasn’t invited until the night before. There is just so much confusion, missteps, and shade between these two. In D’Andra’s absence, Stephanie Hollman did show up to help LeeAnne shop, which is not something anyone would have expected after watching the first two seasons.
