Last week, Bravo announced that two new shows will be joining the network's "Housewives" franchise, and it was revealed that "The Real Housewives of Potomac" and "The Real Housewives of Dallas" will be making their way to TV screens in 2016. While the Potomac cast has been announced, there is no word on who will be joining the Dallas franchise.
However, Reality Steve has the scoop on who made the cut. According to the website, two ladies that are "definitely going to be players in the cast" are LeeAnne Locken and Cary Deuber.
Deuber is the wife of Mark Deuber, who is said to be a very successful plastic surgeon in Dallas. According to her website, she has a baby daughter and is a stepmother to two children. She is also a certified registered nurse assistant and describes herself as a "dedicated yogi, philanthropist, and travel guru."
Meanwhile, Locken is an actress who has appeared in some TV series and a few movies. The 48-year-old played the part of Miss Nebraska in "Miss Congeniality" and also competed in the reality show called "She's Got the Look." According to her LinkedIn page, Locken currently works as an anchor for a local TV show called "Realty Times Inc."
Other ladies who are rumored to be in the cast are Tiffany Hendra, Cynthia Smoot, and Stephanie Hollman. Bravo is keeping mum on the cast list, and it is unclear whether the network has finalized the players for the show. Meanwhile, Dallas Observer reports that a Bravo spokesperson told them that the show has started filming some episodes for the first season of "The Real Housewives of Dallas."
Speaking to Reality Tea, Andy Cohen shared some info about the new show and said that they have been toying with the idea of a Dallas cast for about seven years.
"We cast there. We cast in Houston. We didn't get it right in either place. And then this cast happened maybe a year ago. I don't even know. We thought this could be good."
Reality Tea claims that there was a rumor that the particular cast Cohen mentioned was initially put together for a show called "Ladies in Dallas," but executives were said to be very impressed with the cast that they decided to give them the "Real Housewives" treatment.
"The Real Housewives of Dallas" is slated to premiere in 2016.
