Leeanne Locken Bravely Opens Up About Traumatic Childhood
We have loved watching this season of The Real Housewives of Dallas, much because of Leeanne Locken, who has definitely been the focal point of the show. While much of the season has surrounded drama amongst the women, Locken gave a speech on last night’s episode that was one of the bravest things we’ve ever seen a Housewife do. What do we mean? Read on for details.
Leeanne Locken RHOD Traumatic Childhood Speech
On the episode, Locken spoke at an Aids charity event, and decided to be open about things she has gone through in her life.
“As a child, I had a lot of labels,” Locken told the audience. “When I was 3 years old I was abandoned by my mother. My label was not worthy.”
Locken continued to open up, bravely sharing, “When I was a preteen, I was molested by my best friend’s father. My label was not valued. When I was a young woman the one and only person I’ve ever been engaged to tried to kill me. My label was not loved.”
“HIV is a disease, it’s not who you are, it is not your label,” she wrapped with saying.
We applaud Locken for being so courageous and open, especially when she knows this would be aired to a national audience.
