Things were dramatic, to say the least, on the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Dallas. During the group’s stay in Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman’s Austin vacation home, LeeAnne Locken actually threatened to kill Marie Reyes. LeeAnne was infuriated at Marie because she believed her to be the one who told Taylor Garrett a very embarrassing story about her. Was Marie really the one who told Taylor, who then blabbed to Brandi and Stephanie, that LeeAnne once pooped in her pants?
During the episode, Marie maintained that she was innocent. During an interview with AfterBuzz TV after the episode aired on Monday night, Marie continued to proclaim her innocence. According to her, Taylor, wanting to make an impression on Brandi and Stephanie, made up the story. It just so happened that the story Taylor told closely resembled what actually happened in real life.
“No. I didn’t [tell Taylor the poop story]. No. It didn’t come from me. If you guys remember, earlier in the season, Taylor makes a statement, ‘Marie told me a story that LeeAnne pooped her pants one time.’ And then tonight, obviously you saw the clip on the van where Brandi says, ‘Well at least I didn’t s**t in a bag in the back of a car.’ So there was a very, very distinct, you know, story that happened 13 years ago that, you know, included those facts. Taylor was trying to entertain Brandi and Stephanie, like the poop girls, with something funny and when they pressed him for details he was like, ‘Um let me get back to you.’ He did not know the story and he’s come on, he did one of the Periscope [sessions] with me, where he apologized to me for getting me in that mess and, you know, basically saying he was trying to be funny and it backfired. He thought it would be cute actually to have that story get back to LeeAnne via Brandi and watch LeeAnne chop Brandi’s head off.”
Marie Reyes further explained that Taylor Garrett, knowing that Marie’s event was going to be filmed for the show, watched an old Real Housewives scene involving Bethenny Frankel and got inspired with a story to tell Brandi and Stephanie.
“Well I asked him that and he said…he had never seen Real Housewives before and he pulled up an episode, I guess Bethenny Frankel pees in a bucket in her wedding dress?…He told me that was where he came up with the idea…”
As the episode aired, Marie pointed out via Twitter that Taylor didn’t actually say that LeeAnne pooped in a bag in the back of a car.
LeeAnne pointed the finger at Tiffany.
When one of the AfterBuzz TV hosts pointed out that LeeAnne did confess to pooping not in a bag but in her pants, Marie made a clarification.
“Actually she pooped in a basket…It was a gift basket.”
Marie added that the story did get out but she wasn’t the one who told but Tiffany Hendra, something that Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman actually confirmed.
“The story does get told but it gets told by Tiffany…Afterwards, Brandi and Stephanie came forward and said, ‘No, no. Tiffany told us that story.’ So I can blame Tiffany because Brandi and Stephanie flat out told me that Tiffany told them the story.”
In her blog post, Brandi said that Tiffany confirmed the story.
“Peeing in a solo cup is one of my hidden talents and I’m sure I will do it again some day. LeeAnne’s reaction was ridiculous considering her poop in a bag story. I actually didn’t believe LeeAnne when she denied it because Tiffany had already confirmed the story. So, all I could think was whatever, poopy pants!”
Yet Stephanie’s blog didn’t actually say that Tiffany confirmed the story.
“On the way to Austin the ‘LeeAnne Locken pooping in a bag’ story came up. After Taylor told us, Brandi Redmond and I ran over to Tiffany Hendra to get the story and she just asked, ‘How did you hear that?’ LeeAnne, however, appeared to be embarrassed when it came up so we dropped it.”
Another shocking moment during the AfterBuzz TV interview came when Marie claimed that, as LeeAnne was chasing her around the kitchen island and threatening her after the camera crew had already left and the others were in bed, LeeAnne said that she would destroy Taylor’s business. Taylor is the owner of Jack & Jill Pet Boutique.
“And then she said she was going to buy dog food at Taylor’s store and claim her dog died and tell everybody on social [media] so that he would be in, you know, bankruptcy.”
A few weeks ago, Taylor Garrett admitted that Marie didn’t tell him the poop story.
He tweeted that he was just being funny.
Viewers will likely see Marie Reyes and LeeAnne Locken face off again over the poop story on the reunion show. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the first The Real Housewives of Dallas reunion show filmed two weeks ago. Marie, as a “friend” of the housewives this season, joined the other ladies on the couches for a part of the reunion.
