Amiyah Scott ‘quits Real Housewives of Atlanta’
She was the first transgender cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta – now it seems Amiyah Scott has left the show because of the ‘insulting expectations’ of the producers of the show.
It’s been reported that Scott, who was trying out on the show, has quit after filming for just a month because of the ‘inaccurate portrayal’ that producers had planned for her.
One report has it that the 27-year-old model and all-round beauty and make-up guru was told to wear lingerie and ‘behave like a vixen’, not to mention the demands that she stir up drama. It seems that what was really wanted was a catty person who would bitch about her co-stars!
Word is that Amiyah stormed off the eight season of the Bravo series, which she’d joined in the hope of being a role model for other transgenders, and she no longer felt she’d have the opportunity to do this.
However, we understand she has had other offers of TV work since then.
The season eight cast now includes Tammy McCall, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Phaedra Parks Nida and Kim Fields.
