On Wednesday’s Real Housewives of Dallas, Simmons had a frank conversation with Locken during a cast dinner in Beaver Creek — asking her longtime friend why she and Emberlin hadn’t yet made any wedding plans.
The couple have been together for more than nine years and have been engaged for more than a year.
Locken, 51, had her reasons for the delay in planning, which she tearfully admitted.
First, she explained that Emberlin’s loss of sight in his right eye had caused him to struggle emotionally.
“At the moment, why I haven’t pushed to move forward with a wedding date is that it’s been very difficult with him being blinded,” she said. “Here’s the thing, he’s not in a happy place. It affects him and we are together. So I’m just being patient.”
“The Real Housewives of Dallas” star D’Andra Simmons says there’s “huge pressure” to be thin in Texas.
“I call it the little L.A.!” she recently told Page Six of Dallas.
“All the women have to be glamorous and thin and basically look like they’re stepping out of a photo shoot every time they leave their house,” she explained. “My mother has perfected the smokey eye at 8 a.m.! So she’s never been overweight a day in her life. She’s just this gorgeous, I mean statuesque woman and she always has been. And to keep up with all the beautiful women and what you’re supposed to be — you’re supposed to be glamorous. You’re supposed to be classy. You’re supposed to be thin. A size 2 would be preferable. I’m a size 6 so I’m a little bit over the limit!”
Simmons, 49, previously opened up about struggling with her weight on a podcast and came under fire for her claims that everyone she knew was skinny because they abused Adderall.
Her co-star Brandi Redmond took offense at her claims, but Simmons told us they have since made up and resolved their issues.
D’Andra Simmons is on the mend after a little accident over the weekend.
The Real Housewives of Dallas entrepreneur went to the emergency room after cutting her finger with a mandoline slicer while cutting up some eggplant, she shared on Twitter on Saturday. The post included a photo of D’Andra in the hospital with blood on her right hand as she awaited getting some stitches on her sliced finger. D’Andra also shared in the post that there was “#bloodeverywhere” during the incident, which she also referred to as a “#stupidaccident.”
D’Andra gave an update on her injury on Twitter Monday after she returned home from the hospital. “I received eight stitches and part of my nail bed was removed. I cut off the tip of my finger, and it is extremely painful,” D’Andra shared in a tweet that also featured a photo of her with part of her hand wrapped up in a pink bandage. “Thanks for the [love].”
One of the people who sent their love to D’Andra was her fellow Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman. “Oh my gosh girl, that is crazy! I hope you’re okay!” she tweeted. “Let me know if you need anything! Love you!”
