This season of the “Real Housewives of Dallas” has been anything but boring. It looks like it is gearing up to be everyone against LeeAnne Locken. We are almost at the end of the season and let’s be honest, the reunion is going to be a mess. This season we have seen LeeAnne takes things a little too far. From riding high off of her wedding day to throwing low blows on “friend” vacations. She might finally be humbled by her bad behavior.

Locken released an apology on her Instagram recently expressing regret for the comments she made on more than one occasion towards co-star Kary Brittingham. The newlywed has been making headlines for being racially insensitive about Mexican people. We all know LeeAnne for being the loud Dallas housewife who always takes things way too far. Her own bestie D'andra Simmons has spent the majority of the season trying to not only rebuild her friendship with Locken. But to also save her reputation by letting her know that she is doing entirely too much at this point.

On Wednesday’s episode, the group returned home from experiencing “a ping pong show” while in Thailand. Locken, being against the idea decided to go and later that night after leaving the show horrified, she took her anger out on her roommate Kameron Westcott. She went in on Westcott about Brittingham’s decision to suggest their trip to the adult show. "Do you have any clue how many sex workers we just looked at?!" Locken shouts. "That f--king c--t wants to prove how f--king tough she is 'cause she's from México!" Locken even put on a fake Mexican accent as she said the country’s name.

If this wasn’t on TV we can almost guarantee that Locken would not have issued any apology. However, that is not the case and she has issued this apology. "I am deeply sorry to those that I have hurt or offended with some of my comments on Real Housewives of Dallas season. 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."

The 52-year-old went on to say, “the little chirpy Mexican has to have her way, and so she drug everyone there. 'I'm so great! Mexico! I'm from Mexico! I can kick anybody's ass!'" Even though Westcott isn’t in agreeance with Locken she still keeps her comments to herself until she hits the confessional. She says, LeeAnne, you are not allowed to put a noun or a verb in front of nationalities. You cannot do that! But the last thing I'm gonna do is call her on that because she's not acting like a sane person right now."

LeeAnne’s comments didn’t stop there. She went on to vent to her other co-star and trip organizer Stephanie Hollman with more racially charged comments. "Come on, Mexican! I thought you were all Mexican and strong!" says Locken. In the preview for next week's episode, Locken is seen being called out and confronted on her comments during the trip which leads to an even bigger altercation. She attempts to defend herself by saying. "I didn't mean Mexican in a derogatory way, or I wouldn't speak Mexican."

Locken’s apology is well overdue even show creator Andy Cohen was at a lost for words. When she appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" Locken attempted to shake the racist label by saying she has slept with a lot of Mexicans. "I don't care that you're Mexican. I've slept with plenty of Mexicans, by the way. Hot f--king lovers, okay? I sat in Julio Iglesias' lap." Julio Iglesias is Spanish by the way. Cohen let fans know that the comments were discussed in length at the taping of the reunion. “We broke down the racial slurs for a very long time at the reunion, and you'll see all of that. We're just airing what happened while we were shooting the show, right now." What do you think of LeeAnne’s comments? Does she get a pass?
