Demetria McKinney, who came to fame via the Tyler Perry vehicle “House of Payne” and is now stars on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” has slammed the report that she was fired from the reality show as 100 percent false.
The “100” singer was also said to be banned from the RHOA reunion show because she simply lacked a compelling storyline despite being allegedly involved in a volatile love triangle involving boyfriend Roger Bobb.
McKinney, who recently release her solo album, had this to say to Hello Beautiful:
“There have been rumors circulating that I was fired from RHOA and “banned” from the reunion set. This is completely untrue. Let me “Keep it 100.” I was not ‘banned’ from the reunion set nor was I fired from the show. I am under contract for this season just like the rest of the cast.”
McKinney, who recently dropped her latest album Take Away This Love, said there was another why she was not able to appear:
“Fortunately, because of the platform the show has provided for me, my music career has escalated and that will always come first. In addition to continuing to support ‘RHOA,’ I am currently busy with my live performances as well as preparing for the upcoming Funkfest Tour that I have been added to with R. Kelly, SWV and Erykah Badu. Thank you to all the ‘RHOA’ fans out there who continue support ‘100’ and my new single ‘Trade It All’ and don’t forget to check out the video with cameos from my girls Claudia and Cynthia.”
