LeeAnne Locken Says She “Found The Old LeeAnne” Since Leaving RHOD!

LeeAnne Locken talks about life after The Real Housewives of Dallas. The self-proclaimed, Mouth of the South shared an update on her life after exiting the Bravo hit reality series after four seasons. 

"You don't realize how deep in it you are until you remove yourself from it," Locken told the DailyMailTV of the show, comparing it to "kind of like a bad relationship."

"It's weird because, you know, I go out now and I see my friends and they're all like, "Oh, my god - you're so happy and bright and joyful." And I'm like, I know I found the old LeeAnne and she's back!"

Locken's departure came right before the coronavirus pandemic hit and she's been spending an unexpected amount of time at home with husband Rich Emberlin.

"The pandemic has either really brought couples close together or it has really made sure to keep couples further apart," LeeAnne said. "I am lucky that I have a husband who is smart enough to quarantine away from me when we are home."

LeeAnne claimed that part of the reason she left the show, was at that time when she announced her exit in February was that she wanted to focus more on her philanthropic efforts.

"Anybody who knows me knows that I spend the majority of my time working in the non-profit world, really trying to pay it forward, really trying to make a difference," LeeAnne said.

Locken is currently working with The Fashion Foundation. The small organization teams up with designers to help thousands of students in New York get much needed school supplies, backpacks, art supplies, notebooks, and clean uniforms.

The charity has pivoted a bit during the pandemic and recently delivered 500 bags filled with school supplies and activities to children living in shelters so that they can participate in virtual learning.
