LeeAnne Locken Officially Announces She’s Leaving The Real Housewives Of Dallas After 4 Seasons!

Breaking news! LeeAnne Locken has officially announced her departure from The Real Housewives of Dallas after four seasons. “The last four years have been a trolley-slapping good time but after much consideration, I have made the personal decision to step away from RHOD,” she told PEOPLE in a statement.

“Getting to share my wedding with the viewers last year brought me tremendous joy, however, the season was very personally challenging for me,” she continued. “I am looking forward to stepping away from the cameras and spending quality time with my husband and friends, traveling, but most importantly, getting back to philanthropy, which was my main reason for joining the show.”

“Thank you to everyone who has laughed and cried with me along the way,” Locken added. “It’s been an amazing journey, and yes my pantyliner is still exhausted. There are so many exciting things on my horizon that I can’t wait to share with you.”

This past season of RHOD, Locken came under fire after making racially insensitive comments toward her co-star Kary Brittingham during a group trip to Thailand.

At the RHOD reunion, Locken took responsibility for her words — which included calling the Mexican-born Brittingham a “chirpy Mexican” which she vowed to never say them again.

“I know every bone in my body, and I know I don’t have a single bone that believes in discrimination,” Locken said. “I believe in inclusion.”

“I am deeply sorry to those that I have hurt or offended with some of my comments,” Locken also said in a statement. “It was never my intention to hurt anyone and I will use this as a learning experience to be more aware of my comments in the future. My commitment moving forward is to continue my work fighting for equality and acceptance of all humans.”

Locken and Brittingham have since reconciled. Season 5 of RHOD is expected to begin filming soon. Bravo has no official word on casting.

In addition to Locken and Brittingham, last season included Brandi Redmond, Stephanie Hollman, Kameron Westcott, and D’Andra Simmons.
