Chrisette Michelle Quits “R&B Divas?”
Some people just can’t handle the intensity that is associated with reality TV and Chrisette Michelle is one of them. The “Better” singer penned an open letter to her fans about her involvement with TV One’s “R&B Divas” and alluded to quitting the show, saying “I can’t participate in brokenness.” Oop!
Michelle took to Instagram and wrote a long letter detailing the backlash she’s received since joining the show.
“Hey can I write you a letter? Dear fans, Maybe you were right about me not doing a reality show. I have had so much fun staying beneath the radar. I’ve traveled to more countries then I can pronounce and made friends of fans and celebs alike, collabed with my favorite artists (you know I’m a nerdy hip hop head). Truth is, I wasn’t raised on R&B. I just happen to sound okay singing it.
I’ve never thought that wearing angel wings and trying to be open about feelings would make people send me evil tweets and receive awful phone calls. A Diva. Maybe that’s not the right term for artists now a days the way it was when Whitney was here. Maybe it’s meaning has changed. I’m truly just here to say hello. On your TV screens to show you who I am outside of this music/Hollywood stuff. Maybe reality was a mistake.
Maybe I should stay in my comfortable cave where I’m only loved. Half a million twitter followers, 200k insta Rich Hipster’s and 2.1 million Facebook likes have come from the music alone. From backstage hugs and kisses. From marriage proposals on my open hearted stage. From my quirky ever changing style. From hellos on the streets. From meet & greets. The moments un-telivised.
Some people aren’t meant to share their personality. Maybe I’m one of those people. One of those who are protected by the Art. Art is love and it covers. It shields. I don’t see myself doing reality again. I’ll hang out with my pet unicorn in Artist-ville. This negativity is tragic and I can’t transfer these vibes to my Art. I love you. I won’t speak negativity against any one on the show in any further interviews.
I won’t speak the name of people who quell my light. I can’t participate in brokenness. Healing is my ambition. Light is my nourishment. Be well. The Rich Hipster Captain #chrisette #ChrisetteMichele #Art #RichHipster #randbdivasLA #rbdivasla #rbdivas #iamstillhere #itsByTheGraceOfGod”‘
If Michelle handed in her resignation, she wouldn’t be the only celeb to severe ties with the show. Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, LaTocha Scott, Chante Moore, Dawn Robinson and Angie Stone are former divas.
Catch “R&B Divas” every Wednesday night on TV One at 10pm.
