The RHOD reunion was back last night with part two, and LeeAnne was in the hot seat for most of the segment. Check out what she had to say to defend herself.
The Real Housewives of Dallas reunion part two began with a thoughtful comment from LeeAnne Locken, “Let the hanging begin.” LeeAnne’s use of racist comments was the biggest topic of the second part of the reunion. Check out some of the highlights of the roast of LeeAnne during the RHOD reunion.
LeeAnne’s Distasteful Comments About Kary
LeeAnne and Kary Brittingham butted heads from the very beginning of this season of RHOD. Kary thought that LeeAnne was negative, bossy, and a bully. She mentioned incidents outside of the show, especially on social media and also coming from a LeeAnne’s wedding planner Steve Kemble (more on HIM later!).
Kary had apparently responded by telling Steve Kemble to go do something inappropriate to LeeAnne. LeeAnne said this was a homophobic statement to Steve, who is gay. Andy, who is also gay, responded that he didn’t find it to be homophobic.
Phrases that LeeAnne used to describe Kary throughout the season included: “Chirpy Mexican,” “Find your own Mexican words,” “Come on Mexican, I thought you were all Mexican and strong,” “I can defend myself because I’m from Mexico,” “She wants to prove how tough she is because she’s from Mexico,” and “I’m so great because I’m from Mexico.” Thank you production for the flashbacks.
Finally, Kary stood up for herself at the reunion
When Kary confronted LeeAnne shortly after learning about her comments at Brandi Redmond’s party. LeeAnne’s defense was that she had grown up with a Mexican family, had slept with many Mexicans, and has sat in Julio Iglesias’ lap.
After showing this montage of LeeAnne’s excuses, Brandi got up from the couch, retrieved a metal folding chair from off stage, and told LeeAnne to sit in the chair so that she could face all of them while they talked to her. LeeAnne refused to take the metal seat. Brandi then gave LeeAnne a talking to, stating that her words were disgusting, she was disappointed, didn’t want to be associated, was ashamed, it wasn’t ok, and to talk like that over and over again was racism.
LeeAnne said she doesn’t have a racist bone in her body. She believes in inclusion, and that she didn’t think that calling someone by their nationality was racism. She said she didn’t use her words well, wasn’t putting her words together well, and that it was a mistake. Andy pointed out that it was a “series of mistakes.”
