Why the ‘RHOD’ Ladies Thought LeeAnne Locken’s Racist Comments ‘Would Never See the Light of Day’
Additionally, the women admitted they thought the “dark” and “crazy” things she said “would never see the light of the day.”
The women called LeeAnne Locken out for racial comments
After they showed a clip of LeeAnne Locken referring to co-star Kary Brittingham as a “chirpy Mexican” and mocking the Guadalajara-native, Brandi Redmond retrieved a chair and told Locken to sit over there.
She explained she felt like her co-star’s comments were “disgusting” and doesn’t want to be associated with her. Even though she didn’t say it during the finale, Redmond admitted she thought it was racist because Locken continued repeating the comments.
In response to host Andy Cohen, the 52-year-old said she “doesn’t have a single bone in her body that believes in discrimination” and “didn’t think calling someone by their nationality was racist.”
The other ladies called her out and said they didn’t believe she’s that ignorant, and Locken further explained she “didn’t use her words well.” When the Infinity Dress maker tried saying she “wasn’t mentally present” while she made one of her racist comments, Cohen asked what happened during all the other times. Locken admitted, “it was a series of errors.”
Then, Brittingham had the floor to explain how the comments hurt her, and when she took a moment to collect herself, Locken apologized and promised she would “never say it again.”
However, the jewelry designer said she couldn’t “even look at” the 52-year-old because ever since the comments aired, Locken has only made excuses and never apologized.
The dress designer claimed production told her not to reach out to anyone, and again, Cohen exposed her lie, saying she had four months after filming wrapped to apologize to Brittingham.
Once again, the Infinity Dress maker tried to explain she was “ignorant” and has “educated” herself since the incident happened. However, the other ladies, minus Kameron Westcott, still weren’t buying it.
Why the ‘RHOD’ women thought the comments would never air
They also admitted they never thought Locken’s remarks would “never see the light of day” because they felt production would protect her. Brittingham asked the ladies if they still would have told her if the comments didn’t air, and after a moment of silence, Westcott spoke up and said she “absolutely” would have informed her.
Hollman called out her co-star and said production explained to Westcott the comments would air before she got into the car and broke the news to Brittingham.
However, the homemaker explained she already spoke to her husband, Court, about the situation beforehand and already planned on her notifying her friend about the comments then.
On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Hollman revealed she thought the comments would never air because Locken has done “bad things” in the past, and production shielded her because of how much she contributes to the show.
Therefore, she thought they would cut the comments because of how “dark” and “crazy” they were.
