Here's Why Cary Deuber's Husband Made a Surprise Appearance at The Real Housewives of Dallas Reunion

"It was a pretty rough season for me," The Real Housewives of Dallas hubby said.

The Real Housewives of Dallas weren't the only ones who sat down with Andy Cohen to revisit the buzziest Lone Star moments at this season's reunion. Cary Deuber's husband Mark Deuber also joined the ladies to address the chatter about himself and his relationship this season. 

Mark told Bravotv.com prior to the episode airing that it seemed like some people were "surprised" that he was at the reunion, especially since none of the Housewives' significant others were expected to be there. Nevertheless, Mark said he felt like it was important for him to share his views on what went down this season. "I think I wanted to be there because it was a pretty rough season for me, for us personally," he shared. "Last year, we kind of went through some stressful times at work and at home, just kind of rejiggering things we were doing in our practice and Cary realigning how she wanted to spend her time, and I think I probably didn't come across that great." 

Cary explained to Bravotv.com why it seemed like LeeAnne Locken "was super irritated" about Mark being at the reunion. "You know, I think it's hard when you say a lot of stuff about someone and then see them and then have to address it, I think that's hard. Yeah, I think it's harder to confront," she said. "I think most people don't have the guts to actually just confront someone after they've said a bunch of nasty stuff about them."

Mark said he was glad that he had the opportunity to set the record straight on some of the gossip surrounding him this season. "I think if I hadn't shown up — because it was certainly hard to go looking at how I came across and how I acted — I just think it would've left more questions if I didn't; it would've kind of confirmed what other people think," he said. 

The RHOD nurse praised her hubby for having the strength to confront those who have shared some not-so-kind words about him this season. "He wanted to be there for me and be supportive," she said. "He has nothing to hide, and I think that's what we definitely want the message to come across [as]." 

Though Cary admitted that she was "nervous" and "had a lot of anxiety" going into the reunion, it was ultimately a productive experience for her. "After the reunion, I feel like I got a lot off my chest. I feel like I'm in a better place with some people, but I feel like I'm in a worse place with others. I went in there stating facts and stating how I feel, and I think that's the most important thing. With friends, that's what you want. You want to be able to tell your friend, 'You know what, you pissed me off saying that.' And you know what, I'm happy to say, 'You know what, you're right. You made me mad, I made you mad. Let's work on it and move forward,'" Cary shared. "And I think Brandi [Redmond] and I really have done that because I was upset with her, and I think she was really upset with me. And I think that happens, but I think that makes you better friends in the end."
