The Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman had a fun journey on the first season of the show. Hollman didn’t have the marriage problems that Brandi Redmond went through, she didn’t have the anger issues that LeeAnne Locken was dealing with, and she didn’t have rumors chasing her like Cary Deuber. Stephanie’s biggest hurdle was getting her husband to stop writing lists for her to do around the house when he was working. And it sounds like she reached her goal, as Travis Hollman is no longer leaving lists for his wife. Despite the positive experience on the show, Stephanie did have some words for LeeAnne after reunion special aired.
According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman reveals that she went to the reunion special with the goal of settling her issues with Locken. But Stephanie constantly felt that her co-star was bringing her down on The Real Housewives of Dallas, possibly because of LeeAnne’s carnival past and her way of dealing with situations. Hollman felt belittled, and she doesn’t appreciate it.
“I wanted to go to the Reunion, talk about my issues with LeeAnne and move on. When she interrupted my sentence, started clapping at me and telling me to listen to her, I felt like she was once again attempting to belittle and talk down to me. I am an educated woman and do not appreciate this. When I told her I would listen and she could talk, of course, she had nothing to say. She wanted to lead the conversation and be in control. She was trying to put me in line,” Stephanie Hollman reveals in her Bravo blog, sharing that she was tired of the way LeeAnne was treating her.
Throughout the season, Locken kept justifying her behavior every time she acted out. It’s no secret that she’s had an interesting past, as she’s opened up about seeing people die of overdoses and being molested herself. Of course, that kind of childhood will do some kind of damage, but Stephanie doesn’t think that her childhood justifies her crazy behavior. Locken has revealed that she’s now in therapy to help her out when it comes to dealing with her emotions before everything completely blows over. And Hollman acknowledges that her co-star has had it tough.
“I’m sorry that LeeAnne experienced a painful childhood. I understand how difficult it can be to forgive, let go and move forward. I understand that it is a process and sometimes feels like two steps forward and three steps back which can be distressing. I appreciate and applaud LeeAnne for getting help. I believe that therapy and change are healthy, wonderful gifts one can give to themselves. Her anger and insecurities appear get the best of her. It’s sad to watch her lash out, hurt and emotionally injure others along the way only to apologize by blaming her past,” Stephanie Hollman reveals in her blog for Bravo.
Since the women are not exactly friends, one can imagine that Stephanie Hollman won’t reach out to her co-star when The Real Housewives of Dallas is on hiatus. Bravo has yet to announce a second season of the show, as they may want to look at the ratings. During the reunion special, Andy Cohen revealed that the show had faced some backlash, as the women didn’t represent the true Dallas. This kind of comment won’t stop the show, as the same thing has been said about the Real Housewives of New Jersey women.
