Now sitting down and speaking with you guys, I wish we could have changed it. I wish we could have done something different. Maybe we still can. It’s a learning and a teaching moment for all of us. Evelyn [Lozada], Shaunie [O’Neal], since they’re the ones that are really getting it, I know them personally without editing and I don’t feel there was malice behind it. These are wonderful women. When it all boils down to it, OG is a wonderful woman as well. We need to take a moment and stop and think, and in these situations, we just react and go for the jugular.
I hate that OG feels like that. I may not get along with her but it’s devastating that this beautiful Black woman feels less than at her job. That sucks. It absolutely sucks. So I think everyone needs to own their sh-t. She needs to take a step back and say, how did I even get here? And we as a cast meaning everyone but OG, that includes her friends that are on the show, how did we allow her to even feel this way?
Scott, who is also an author, also revealed that she is using her resources to join the fight against homelessness after being inspired to give back to marginalised by her communities by her father.
Her main concern lies with the children who are most affected by with it. So, with help from community leaders in New Orleans, she is working on charitable initiatives she hopes will change their lives for the better.
You don’t ever really see the homeless kids on the street. I know I can’t cure world hunger but I’m going to try and figure this out.
