Last season on the Real Housewives of Dallas, LeeAnne Locken claimed that Cary Deuber’s husband was unfaithful. And now, one year later, Locken finds herself in the middle of her own cheating scandal.
Locken’s co-star D’Andra Simmons has accused Locken’s fiancé, Rich Emberlin, of infidelity, but Locken is fighting back. She says that it saddens her that a cast member would go below the belt, and the accusations are false.
“The reality is that Rich and I are busy planning a wedding, working on all of the details, and beyond excited about our life-long love affair,” Locken told Us Weekly.

On last week’s episode of RHOD, Simmons asked Locken during a tense sit down about her and Emberlin “living separate lives” after she gave a vague answer about when their wedding would take place. Simmons then asked if Locken thought Emberlin was faithful to her, and she also talked about hearing rumors about him.
“What is the truth?” asked Simmons. “I know that you’re worried because Rich has been married before. Do you feel like he’s not going to stay married to you? Do you feel like he’s faithful?”
In the episode, Locken appeared to be speechless after Simmons’ comments, and D’Andra Simmons seemed to be frustrated about Locken’s answer to the wedding date question. But, when the episode aired earlier this week, Locken and Emberlin laid in bed and laughed about it.
“And by the way — how could a pirate get away with cheating? Don’t you think he’s the only pirate in Dallas?” Locken asked.
She was alluding to the fact that Emberlin wears an eye patch.
Simmons says that the truth about Emberlin will come out in the end. The co-stars took a break from their friendship back in August, and now Locken is questioning if they were actually friends to begin with. She added that it would be Emberlin’s decision on whether or not they will invite Simmons to the wedding because some of the things that Simmons said really affected him.

Simmons claims that she is suspicious of Emberlin because she had her own experience with infidelity. She knows all about living separate lives and telling a story about someday getting married, even though she knew her fiancé was cheating on her the entire time and let it happen.
She explained that she was asking Locken those questions to give her an opportunity to tell her the truth. But LeeAnne Locken said that she and Emberlin were not living separate lives, it’s just that she doesn’t drag him everywhere with her. They don’t make each other do things they don’t want to out of respect for each other.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of Dallas air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
