Real Housewives of Dallas star Kameron Westcott has addressed her racism scandal and the future of the Bravo series in a new interview.
The socialite held nothing back during an appearance on the No Filter With Zack Peter podcast this week and said that she’s been ‘learning when to keep my mouth shut’ following her feud with co-star Dr Tiffany Moon and even hired a diversity coach to educate her on racism.
The 38-year-old apologised for many of her antics on social media, which included accusing Tiffany of promoting ‘white face’ for using a clown emoji on Twitter.

She also apologised for her husband Court Westcott’s behaviour on Twitter, after he got in trouble for tweeting that ‘anti-racism is racism’ because ‘it discriminates by the colour of one’s skin.’
‘After the reunion I felt awful,’ she told host Zack Peter. ‘I apologised multiple times, I wanted to reconcile, I wanted to move forward.’
After receiving backlash from viewers for her antics, Kameron sought out the help of a diversity coach to teach her about microaggressions and white privilege.
‘One hundred per cent owning it, it was horribly wrong of me to respond that way and I did hire a DI [diversity and inclusion] expert after the reunion and she taught me a lot,’ she explained.

Kameron also said that her family members were ‘a hundred per cent wrong’ for tweeting about Tiffany and involving themselves in the drama of the show.
However, she did confirm that she and Tiffany still weren’t on speaking terms and she’d given up on trying to reconcile after multiple failed attempts.
Back in May, shortly after members of the Westcott family made comments about Tiffany on Twitter, the anaesthesiologist had her lawyer publicly issue a statement in response.

‘The insinuations the Westcotts made in those tweets are reckless, defamatory and appalling.’
‘Dr. Moon is a professional in every sense of the word and is deserving of the excellent reputation that she’s earned as a physician and as a hard working mother,’ Andrew B. Brettler of Lavely & Singer told ET.
‘These attacks on her character will not be tolerated. The Westcotts would be well advised to keep mentions of Dr. Moon out of their social media feeds.’

Bravo also issued a statement of their own on Instagram following pressure from RHOD viewers.
‘Bravo strongly supports the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Anti-racism is, in fact, not a form of racism and the network stands by Dr. Tiffany Moon and her advocacy against racism and violence,’ read the message.
A few months later, Bravo confirmed that they had no plans to bring the Real Housewives of Dallas back for another season in 2022, and said that no decision about the overall future of the show had been made.
Despite many fans believing that RHOD has now been officially cancelled or put on indefinite hiatus, Kameron believes that it could still return one day in the future.

‘I do think there’s still hope for the future,’ she said. ‘They didn’t say cancelled, they said hiatus, so maybe it will come back on Peacock and there will be a reboot one day.’
She added: ‘I do think [RHOD] should come back and I do think that they need two more really strong players, two people who have really good strong opinions.’
After Kameron’s interview was released, Tiffany slammed the blonde in a comment on the No Filter Instagram page.
‘This is not okay. She does not get to play the victim when she (and her family) tried to come after me and my entire career. NOT OKAY,’ Tiffany wrote.
All five seasons of The Real Housewives of Dallas are currently available to stream in Australia via hayu.
