'RHOD': Stephanie Hollman on why she's 'never really meshed' with Kameron Westcott (Exculsive)

Stephanie Hollman just can't seem to click with Kameron Westcott.

The "Real Housewives of Dallas" star, who generally tends to get along with all of her cast mates, has yet to forge a deep connection with Kameron and she attributes that to them being "two very different people who communicate very differently."

"I've never really meshed like I have liked to with Kameron," Stephanie told AOL's Gibson Johns during an exclusive interview last week. "I don't dislike her whatsoever, but sometimes you really gel with people and sometimes you don't."

Heading into the Bravo show's current fourth season, Stephanie was hopeful that she would continue building her friendship with co-star LeeAnne Locken, after the two finally had an emotional breakthrough with one another at the beginning of season 3. It's exactly that kind of moment that Stephanie is still waiting to have with Kameron, who joined "RHOD" in season 2.

"LeeAnne and I have had moments where we’ve bonded, but that’s what I’m missing with Kameron: That moment where you get to know somebody on a deeper level. That’s how I connect with people, when I know them deeper than surface," she explained to AOL. "That’s what we’ve never had, is a deep connection. I don’t think we’ve either felt comfortable going to each other in hard times, and that's definitely on me as well. It took LeeAnne and I three years to have a moment. It’s not all about going out with somebody, because that’s a fun moment but not a deep moment."

After two seasons of not seeing eye-to-eye, Stephanie and LeeAnne were finally able to get a better understanding of one another last season, when Stephanie confessed that she, too, had one attempted suicide during a bout of deep depression. It was a gut-wrenching moment that taught Stephanie a lot about both herself and her longtime co-star.

"I was telling [my husband] Travis yesterday that, 'Sure, LeeAnne says things that I don’t agree with, but is that a reflection on me? No,' and I think it took me a couple of years to realize that," she said. "What she says and does, she has to live with the consequences of -- not me."

"I’d like to be a good friend to her. I’m not perfect whatsoever, but I want the best for her and all these girls," Stephanie went on. "I see a lot of goodness in LeeAnne, and it can be hard to see how soft she can be, but when you get there, you can feel for her. She's a lot softer than people get to see, and she should let people see that softness more, because I think it’s really beautiful."

That vulnerable moment with LeeAnne in season 3 was also a lightbulb moment for Stephanie in terms of what viewers want from "Real Housewives" stars: Sure, we want drama and fights and feuds, but we also want to see them to have moments where they truly put the "real" in "Real Housewives" and let their guard down. And, while she was once "trying to be perfect," now Stephanie is willing to show her "not-so-pretty sides."

"If you do the show and you don’t learn about yourself, then I think you’re missing out on a really great opportunity that nobody else really has. For me, season 1, I was extremely insecure and unsure of myself. I did the show clinching to Brandi [Redmond], and I cried every day that we filmed because I was so scared of offending people," she explained. "I was such a people pleaser that I couldn’t get out of my own head, and I never truly let people know who I really was. I was trying to be perfect."

"The show forced me to be more authentic. I thought people had to want to be like you, and you had to have no skeletons in your closet. I realized last season that it’s actually the opposite: The more you let your guard down, show people who you really are and show your not-so-pretty sides, people can relate to you and that’s where you bond with not only your cast members but also the audience," Stephanie said with a smile. "The show has been a very positive thing for me, and I may be one of the only Housewives to say that, but it’s actually made me like me more. I’ve found myself through reality TV. Who knew?"

"The Real Housewives of Dallas" airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo
