The mid-season trailer for the popular tv series follows cast members as they all travel to Thailand.
The two-minute trailer, released Wednesday, paints Locken as one of the season's main antagonists as she engages in bitter fights with D'Andra Simmons and Kary Brittingham. Controversy arose when Locken decided to focus not only on Simmons' choice of clothing, but also on Brittingham's Mexican heritage in various verbal speeches.
Initially embarrassed by Simmons's choice of clothes, Locken decided to unload how she really felt about her castmate.
"You wanted to embarrass me, and I know Kary (Brittingham) was," said the enraged star after Simmons put on one of Locken's L 'Infinity dresses for dinner.
"I didn't give the first punch. It happened – Locken said in reference to Simmons dress.
Locken then aimed at Brittingham in the second half of the trailer, calling her "gay Mexican."
Brittingham, born in Mexico, was the victim of Locken's verbal attack after an unspecified problem between the two.
"The cheerful little Mexican has to do what he wants," Locken told Simmons.
“Come Mexican! I thought you were Mexican and strong! said Locken in the next scene.
The controversial comments led several cast members to meet and confront Locken about their comments. Brittingham's husband, Eduardo, said "they can't tolerate racism."
In addition, Simmons stepped forward and told Locken that his comments were "bulls – t".

"That's your opinion," LeeAnne said in response.
"It's not my opinion. It's everyone on f-king country opinion, LeeAnne! For God's sake, ”said Simmons.
The trailer ends with a producer asking Brandi Redmond: "Do you think LeeAnne is racist?"
Following the trailer's release, Locken went to Twitter to defend himself amid allegations of racism.
"I'm not racist," Locken simply stated.
