Rumors of casting shakeup for season 5 of RHOD have been swirling ever since a casting flyer popped up online. However, it turns out its standard procedure for production and Bravo to do a casting after every season. Usually, nothing comes of the casting searches, so don’t fret the RHOD could very well remain the same for season 5.
LeeAnne, on the other hand, is all for a shakeup. We’re guessing that LeeAnne is hoping Bravo will kick newbie Kary Brittingham and D’Andra Simmons to the curb since she’s feuded with both ladies all season long.
“Yeah, I hope a real good shakeup,” she exclaims to ET. “You know that tornado that came through my neighborhood? I hope it comes through the show, honey! We’re still trying to recover.”
LeeAnne is also shutting down accusations that she’s racist. While on the RHOD cast trip to Thailand, LeeAnne made some comments about co-star Kary, who is Mexican, which many fans and LeeAnne’s co-stars have interpreted as racist.
“Everything I do in my life, anybody who knows me anywhere around the country — from WeHo to Dallas — knows that I believe in inclusion and equality, and I will fight and die for making that happen,” LeeAnne says rebuffing the accusations. “I don’t know how you can have that label and an ‘ally’ label. And I tell you what, I love my ally label, and I’ll never lose it.”
LeeAnne promises that this accusation, along with others, will be cleared up at the season 4 reunion.
“Oh, I have so many things to clear up,” LeeAnne says of the reunion. “I don’t think there’s a No. 1 [thing] for me. I mean, that’s what happens when you’re, like, the, you know, the target sign … there’s more than one. There’s layers. So, like the bullseye, obviously, would be the label they’re trying to give me, but there’s still outer realms of my negativity, or this or that, and I have a lot of really great points I’m excited to make. And I really can’t wait to make them.”
When asked what she would like to get for the Holidays, LeeAnne insisted she’s more of a giver, telling ET, “I think if I could give anyone anything, I would love to give maybe a few of my cast members a little more security.”
The Real Housewives of Dallas airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
Are LeeAnne’s comments about Kary racist? Do you think RHOD needs a casting shakeup for season 5?
