LisaRaye McCoy has starred in many an Urban classic, but one role she won’t be taking up is a cast spot on the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’
Ever outspoken, the actress revealed in a new interview that she was offered a spot on the hit Bravo show – but declined.
Find out why below…
Speaking on the YBF Podcast, she explained:
“I politely gave them the ‘No thank you,’ I actually have a legitimate career.”
“I’m really not a fan of reality TV right now. It’s so much buffoonery and so much negativity that I’m shocked at the sh-t that they show.
I’m just like – that’s how you would treat your friend? I can’t be in a scene like that because then it would turn real for me and then it would be no more scenes because I would tear that mutha up and I’d be sued. I’m too old for certain sh*t and I refuse to showcase that kind of stuff on TV being a grown, respectable woman.”
We’ve long loved LisaRaye’s brand of real, which is the exact reason we feel she would have made an awesome addition to the show.
That said, what’s your take on her reason for declining?
