Stephanie Hollman Reacts To LeeAnne Locken’s RHOD Reunion Apology And Defends Brandi Redmond After Video Of Her Mocking Asians Has Resurfaced!

Stephanie Hollman recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen along with Danielle Staub. The Real Housewives of Dallas star shared her thoughts on co-star LeeAnne Locken's apology during the show's fourth season reunion special.

If you recall, Locken was put in the hot seat at the reunion over comments she made about Kary Brittingham's nationality, where Locken was accused of being racist. So how did Stephanie felt about LeeAnne's apology?

“I do not buy that she was ignorant to not know that what she was doing was wrong. I think if you do something one time I think you can say that it’s forgivable. But, when I watched it, it was so often and with so much hate that I just don’t think that you do it on accident or you’re that ignorant,” she said, according to Reality Tea.

Andy then asked Stephanie, “You all thought that this would not air on the show? Was she telling you that this wouldn’t air on the show?”

Stephanie shared, “She was very nervous for it to air. Umm, in the past she’s done some things that were horrible and I feel like they’ve always kind of protected her. I always felt like it was because she does contribute so much. So, I don’t think anyone of us thought that it would make the light of day because it was so dark and it was so crazy and she’s been protected so much.”



Andy then asked Hollman to share her thoughts on the backlash that her bestie Brandi Redmond has faced recently over an old video that surfaced on social media where she is seen mocking Asians.

 Andy said, “A video surfaced from three years ago from Brandi’s Instagram. We got a lot of questions about it. People essentially want to know if you think that Brandi is racist for what she said in that video.”

Stephanie told Andy, “Absolutely, not. I think she made a horrible mistake. She’s apologized. She apologized then, she apologized again. She’s learning, she’s growing. I think it was just really poor judgment and a horrible decision. I’ve been on the phone with her a lot and she’s struggling with the shame of doing that and I think she realizes it was not OK.”

Andy then asked Hollman, “What do you think about the juxtaposition of that moment happening right on the heels of everyone gathering and saying that LeeAnne’s a racist?”

“I think it’s a lot of deflection, to be honest,” said Stephanie. “I think Brandi’s video definitely could hurt somebody’s feelings, who’s Asian and watches it. She always does impressions, she always does voices and I don’t think it was done mean-spirited. But, watching it, I can see how it could be very offensive and people would be offended by it.”

Hollmanbroke down the difference between LeeAnne's comments towards Kary being Mexican and Brandi's Asian impression video.

“I think LeeAnne’s was done with hate towards [Kary].”Calling Kary ‘a beautiful Mexican,’ I don’t think is a racist thing, but when you put hate with it, I think it’s very, very different. Brandi’s was not hate-driven.”
