Former “Real Housewives of Dallas” star Leanne Locken has happily moved on from the series two years after saying goodbye — even though she believes the producers didn’t “portray” her properly.
“I was framed to fail every year and the producers and Bravo never got the point about me actually living the life of a phoenix, meaning if I got to the end of my rope And I don’t see any hope, then I get scorched. Prithvi is my only policy because I know I’m going to get up and I’ve always been like that,” she said during an episode Us Weekly “Getting Real With The Housewives.” “So here I am, getting up and growing again and happy and I’m not struggling.”
Locken, 55, left the show in 2020 after realizing that he was a “target” of constant drama.
She told the outlet, “It started to show that as the years went by, I wasn’t having a good time because the cast was so focused on ‘taking out Leanne.
The former Bravo star claims she didn’t want any part in that story because she spoke to the executive producers before each season and told them not to “lie” or “do anything that doesn’t belong to my character.” Is.”
While Locken “just wanted to be authentic” during his four seasons with the franchise, he claims that the other cast’s “loyalty” was rooted in making good television rather than their friendship.
“It’s funny because as the show ends, our cast reaches out to me saying ‘I want you to know that the producers really wanted me to do this,'” she said, adding that she “lies to the audience.” Wasn’t going to speak.”
“The Real Housewives of Dallas” was canceled a year after Leanne’s departure was announced. According to the Texas native, the series would “one hundred percent” still be on-air had she decided to stay.
“I mean, the highest-rated episode of season four was not a reunion, people turned down the reunion. The most-watched episode of season four was My Wedding,” she claimed. “People want a love story. I think in today’s time, small fights over bulls-fights is not just what people want to see. People want to see an authentic journey of victory and that is what I have tried to provide.”
Although she didn’t have the best experience on the show, Locken says she will return to reality TV “in a heartbeat” to explore “who the production company was, who were the other actors” and where she is in life.
