Earlier today, a report surfaced online claiming Demetria McKinney was not only banned from the “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” reunion special that was taped on Friday, but completely fired from the show. Girl, tell a friend to tell a friend that was a lie!
Demetria (who’s one of our besties in our heads) denounced the rumor in an exclusive statement to HelloBeautiful:
“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. 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.”
Demetria made her reality TV debut on season 7 of “RHOA” and used the platform to promote her talent. Unlike other reality stars, who auto tune their way through mediocre singles (no tea, no shade), Demetria displayed some pretty impressive pipes during a live performance on our in-studio series Interludes.
