Real Housewives of Dallas original cast member LeeAnne Locken has quit the show after four seasons.The 52-year-old said she had a ‘trolley-slapping good time’ on the Bravo show but wants to refocus on philanthropy, which she said in a statement released to People Magazine, was her ‘main reason for leaving the show.’However, her departure comes after she was skewered during the January reunion special by her co-stars and host Andy Cohen over several ‘racist’ comments she made during the season. ‘The last four years have been a trolley-slapping good time but after much consideration, I have made the personal decision to step away from RHOD,’ Locken said in her statement.’Getting to share my wedding with the viewers last year brought me tremendous joy, however, the season was very personally challenging for me,’ she continued.  In April, the reality star married Richard Emberlin in an over-the-top wedding with a $4M price tag, which aired on the show in the episode titled My Big Fat Dallas Wedding. ‘I am looking forward to stepping away from the cameras and spending quality time with my husband and friends, traveling, but most importantly,’ she said in her statement, ‘getting back to philanthropy, which was my main reason for joining the show.’ Adding: ‘Thank you to everyone who has laughed and cried with me along the way.

Watching, I’m disappointed,’ Brandi Redmond said during the reunion. ‘I don’t want to be associated. I feel like ashamed and it’s not okay, LeeAnn, it’s not okay. To use that over and over and over again is racism.’At first she tried to defend herself by saying that she ‘never understood calling someone by their nationality as being something that you could use that label on.’  ‘OK, I apologize,’ she said finally. ‘The very first time in that hallway, I was in a place where I could not articulate well. I didn’t use my words well and I didn’t like it when I watched it. I can tell you that.’Andy Cohen pressed her, saying ‘there were 10 other occasions’ where she used the slur. She agreed responding: Kary, who was t
