This past August, TMZ reported that transgender Atlanta resident Amiyah Scott was named a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
I noted in my story at the time that cast decisions weren’t typically made until September, that this probably wasn’t a done deal.
Indeed, when the actual cast was announced a few weeks later, Scott was nowhere to be seen. She wasn’t even bestowed secondary “friend” status like Sheree Whitfield and Shamea Morton.
Scott made a small appearance in this past Sunday’s episode, but I hear she is not expected to show up again.
TMZ today says Scott was offended by the way producers were trying to make her a vixen with a nasty attitude and left the show voluntarily. Bravo declined to comment.
Yesterday, on her Instagram page, she posted a Twitter message from Kandi Burruss:
Clearly, someone in Scott’s camp keeps leaking news to TMZ. The site also broke the news earlier this month that she was part of the pilot for a new Lee Daniels show set in Atlanta focused on a girl group.
