These internet streets aren't for everybody, as Cookie Lyon would say. Months ago, there were some tweets suggesting that there will be a Season 2 of Real Housewives of Dallas. And this week brought a Q&A with LeeAnne Locken that suggests that season 2 is more than a go -- as network representatives finally confirmed -- it may be imminent.
Mind you, Bravo has not "confirmed casting or the premiere date as," according to an email.
But clues leading to a second season were everywhere. It seems some folks at the State Fair of Texas spotted our very own carny with a camera team and Rich Mmmmberlin in tow in October. (My bad, that's my new nickname for Rich Emberlin, who has his own show to worry about over on A&E.)
So, there's that. And then there were the whole non-denials from Bravo over the course of the latter part of 2016.
So, the rumor mill is still churning about the cast, with most outlets saying that Tiffany Hendra is going away. In the Q&A posted this week on a blog called Momcapade, Locken talks about her friend's role in the coming season: "She is taking on a part-time role to focus on her business, Sanctuary of Style." She also talks about what "you'll see" and "new producers."
And "humans have orchestras inside of us. What you see on TV is just one note of our lives," said LeeAnne. She also goes on to say that she had surgery and that it will be "in the season," and she immediately threw some shade by saying that "one of our members is a nurse" who never came to see if she needed any help.
Last year, LeeAnne talked with me at length about that time on RHOD when she threatened to kill former friend Marie Reyes -- who is never mentioned by name -- and about how charity will continue to be a focus because it's her "authentic story."
"I live a life of service," Locken says. She reiterated that in this latest interview on Momcapade. One thing about Locken: Her talking points are cast in stone.
