We knew that last week’s explosive Real Housewives of Dallas fight was going to spill out into the streets, but we didn’t think it would end with LeeAnne Locken literally running into traffic.
But that’s just what Bravo’s newest breakout star did during tonight’s episode after she’d had enough verbal (and a little actual) sparring with BFF Tiffany Hendra. What was this fight over? We don’t really even remember, but it probably had something to do with a poop hat. (It always does in Dallas.) Regardless, after what we’re assuming might have been one too many, LeeAnne accused her best friend of not having her back, then told her she didn’t need her to have her back—don’t worry, we felt the whiplash on that one too—smacked one camera right in the lens, lunged after another, smacked the side of a MOVING TROLLEY CAR after it nearly side-swiped her, took off her heels, and then ran into the street, dodging cars like it was some sort of level of Frogger we were never able to reach.
It was, in a word, something.
After an icy crossing of paths at the charity event of the week (more on that in a minute) that saw the besties completely ignore one another out of pride, they reached a pretty quick thaw during their coffee meeting. No, really, like record-time ice melt as LeeAnne immediately hugged up to Tiffany, kissed her, and repeatedly told her she was sorry and she loved her. “I deserved you yelling at me because of what I said to you,” LeeAnne said in what might be one of the most self-aware Bravopologies ever. “I am sorry that I said that and I said it out of anger, I said it out of hurt.” Gone was the feral cat we last saw darting through traffic, here before us was an actual adult woman owning up to her stuff. Lisa Rinna would’ve loved it.
Now, about the fast-and-loose way everything is called a charity event on RHOD—can we nip this in the bud? Tonight’s “event” amounted to nothing more than dropping off unwanted clothes in a parking lot. Is it being charitable? Yes, without a doubt. Is it an event? Hardly. We do not call it an event when we drop clothes off at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center. We call it doing chores. You dress up for an event. You don’t arrive in jogging pants, carrying trash bags full of last season’s H&M.
Elsewhere in the episode, Stephanie Hollman‘s husband took her for a ride in their classic Rolls Royce and bought her a $75,000 diamond bracelet for their anniversary, Cary Deuber and her husband Mark injected one another with Botox at home (as one does), and Brandi Redmond‘s drunk and late husband Brian showed up couldn’t be bothered to say more than two words to his wife as she anxiously chewed a pile of potato salad at the BBQ she threw in honor of her estranged grandfather coming for a visit. Everyone does love differently, we guess.
The Real Housewives of Dallas airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
