Despite seemingly posting an exit announcement on social media, Brandi Redmond is “contemplating” leaving RHOD but has not quit the show — yet.
Over the weekend, Brandi took to Instagram with a cryptic caption that seemed to imply that she was leaving The Real Housewives of Dallas. While it is unsurprising to most that she would want to leave the series, fans were confused as we are only in the middle of Season 5 and announcements like these are usually left until the end of the season.
“Today I pray that life brings each of you happiness and in prayer John 10:28 kept calling me,” she posted to Instagram. “I prayed that the baggage of mistakes, feeling rejected, used and unworthy are no longer tied to anyones soul. I’m choosing to set myself free and lean into Jesus and I pray you’ll join me if you too have these desires. We are worth happiness, grace, love, compassion and so much more. Stay strong and believe in yourself bc God always believes in you and is with you. I also want to thank you all for being apart of my journey these past few years. I have loved sharing my life with you but sometimes things come to an end. The best kind of ends are happy ending and I choose happiness. Sending you all my love and prayers.”
Now, sources close to Brandi and RHOD are confirming that her social media post is not exactly an exit announcement but that she is considering leaving the reality series.
“Brandi is still very much part of the show,” an insider close to the show reveals exclusively to Page Six. “While she is contemplating leaving, nothing has been confirmed.” According to the gossip outlet, Bravo did not return their requests for comment on Brandi’s rumoured exit.
Brandi faces backlash
As RHOD fans are aware, Brandi has not exactly had an easy road on the show with fans. After feuding with LeeAnne Locken for the first few seasons and singling her out for her inappropriate comments towards co-star Kary Brittingham, Brandi faced backlash from fans after a racist video surfaced after Season 4 in which she mocked people of Asian descent. The drama has since become a storyline on Season 5, with new Housewife Tiffany Moon taking Brandi to task for the recording.
While it does seem that Brandi Redmond is leaving RHOD based off of her Instagram post, stories like these are often just negotiation tactics so at this time, we will wait for an official statement before confirming Brandi’s exit as true.
