Lately, all eyes (ours included) have been focused on “The Real Housewives of Dallas.” But LeeAnne Locken and Marie Reyes aren’t the first Preston Hollow ladies to try their hands at reality TV.

In 2011 we interviewed Leslie Ezelle about her stint on “Design Star.” Here’s an excerpt:

What did it feel like to be kicked off “Design Star”?

I was definitely shocked. I went into it thinking I was going to win it. But [after each episode] I always thought I could do better. I didn’t get to prove myself. I was so disappointed. I can still get my own show. I’m not closing the door on that. There are so many interesting cards that I have to play.

What do you have in mind for your own show?

Since I’m still remodeling my house, it would be “life under construction,” and I want to show a real “modern family.” It should be pretty entertaining — a gay couple in Dallas, me being a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, our four kids and all of our animals.
