LeeAnne Locken is the raven-haired socialite star on The Real Housewives of Dallas. The former Miss USA (1989) and professional actress (she played Miss Nebraska in the 2000 movie Miss Congeniality) now spends most of her time raising money for charities — an occupation which usually involves organizing glamorous galas.
LeeAnne attends the galas with her boyfriend Rich Emberlin who has been working with the Dallas Police Department for nearly 29 years. Since 2011, he’s been working as a detective with the city’s Dignitary Protection Squad. His LinkedIn account describes the job as being “Responsible for Dignitary/VIP protection and is the Foreign Consulate Liaison.” Prior to the DPS, Emberlin was a member of the Dallas SWAT Team; and a detective in the city’s narcotics division. Emberlin is also a firearms instructor. No one feels safer during a night out on the town than LeeAnne Locken. The Real Housewives of Dallas airs Mondays at 10pm on Bravo.
