‘Big Rich Texas’ Star Leslie Birkland Calls Off Engagement

Leslie Birkland has pulled the plug on her wedding to businessman Rip Mason, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

The star of Big Rich Texas and the CEO of Legal Shield had planned to wed in Hawaii this summer. They’d been dating two years and became engaged last October.

A beauty queen-turned pageant coach and successful real estate investor before joining the Big Rich Texas cast, Birkland is not the settling down type.
