This may come as no surprise to hardcore fans of the “Real Housewives” franchise but these women normally don’t quit. This really should not even be a discussion but with LeeAnne Locken announcing her exit from the show, it may be time to get the story straight. LeeAnne was on the show for 4 seasons and let’s keep it 100, she was the best part of the show. All that racism stuff was a severe blow to the series. Whether you believe that LeeAnne is a racist or not, season 4 brought up a lot of feelings but no one was more rightfully triggered than newcomer Kary Brittingham.
After LeeAnne announced her exit from the show, she then posted a series of photos from her time on the RHOD. One photo was of her in her wedding reception gown. She is dancing, laughing and honestly looks like she is living her best life. The newlywed captioned her photo. “From the bottom of my heart I want THANK YOU ALL for your kindness, your love & for making me laugh when I thought I couldn’t.” The newly unemployed former actress continued with a heart emoji. “❤️ YOU are what kept me going and YOU are who I will always be GRATEFUL for! ??.”
She immediately received support from “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum Vicki Gunvalson. “You got this girl. When one door closes, another BIGGER one opens. Call me.” There is no doubt that Vicki is trying to recruit LeeAnne for whatever she and co-star Tamra Judge has going on with that “#lifeafterhouseives” (which she spelled wrong by the way). However, LeeAnne may need to watch out for some hate that is coming in the form of former co-star Cary Deuber. Cary got very candid during an Instagram live where she did her makeup and answered a few questions.
The always honest Cary was replaced in season 4 by her own friend Kary Brittingham. Fans asked her all sorts of questions and she answered them truthfully, but it got awkward when she was asked about what she thought about LeeAnne exiting the show. The nurse straight up said, “Yeah, LeeAnne’s off RHOD. Fired like me.” Whoa, that was news to many fans seeing as LeeAnne kind of made it seem like SHE needed the break and SHE was making the decision to leave. LeeAnne said that she wanted to focus on philanthropy which is what she was doing on the show with all the charities she was involved in.
“I am looking forward to stepping away from the cameras and spending quality time with my husband and friends, traveling, but most importantly, getting back to philanthropy, which was my main reason for joining the show.” Getting called out by Cary may not be a shock to LeeAnne the two did not necessarily get along during their time on the show. So far, there has been no word on if the rest of the cast will be returning. However, we want to take this opportunity to thank Cary for being honest. Not many people will admit they were fired and take someone else down with them.
