Toya Wright Speaks On Turning Down Real Housewives Of Atlanta

In the past, I reported that reality star, author and business woman Toya Wright was interviewed to be a cast member on Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Up until now, Toya’s reasoning for turning down the show hasn’t been confirmed. In a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister, Toya revealed why she turned down the role. Read the excerpts below:

“I interviewed for the ‘Housewives,’ but I’m so used to doing shows with my producer, James DuBose, and being an executive producer on a show so I’m able to see how they portray me,” said Toya, who is protective of her image.

“I work so hard to build such a positive brand and to just let people know who I am. I don’t want to mess that up,” she said. While she has been able to maintain a virtually spotless image through two reality shows, Toya said she can understand why other reality stars complain about what fans see of them on TV.

“With the producers it’s about making good TV and some of them don’t really care about your personal life, as long as it’s something interesting for the cameras and something they can take to the next level to make juicy, they’re going to do it,” she said.

Even though I think if Toya would had joined RHOA she would had a better chance of maximizing her opportunities, I still respect and agree with her decision to not join the show. What is your verdict on it?

Yeezy hopped out of his Benz wearing a $800 Balmain zip-up hoodie, layered over a grey tee-shirt and black leather pants paired with red Balenciaga Pleated High Top Sneakers which are available at Barneys for $615. Yeezy also wore these same sneakers last week when he was spotted running errands with Kim in Miami. As far as the Balmain hoodie, Yeezy enjoys wearing it because he wore twice it in July. Once when he was in Santa Monica and the other when he was in Los Angeles. Are we feeling Yeezy’s outfit?

Solange Covered Elle South Africa November 2012 Issue In A Color-Blocked Outfit

Last month, I reported that Solange Knowles traveled back to the motherland (Africa) to film her new visual “Losing You”. While in Cape Town, South Africa, the fashionable singer shot the November 2012 issue of Elle South Africa. For her cover and photo spread, Solange styled in a few color-blocked outfits which included mix/match shirts, shorts, dresses and blazers. Below are some excerpts:

Solange is a true ELLE Belle. Her eclectic, vibrant style inspires so many people. Not only is she a style icon, she juggles motherhood and  her career seamlessly too. I was with the ELLE team to meet Solange the day before the shoot at Roodebloem Studios. The day was set aside for Solange to try on all the outfits the fashion department had sourced.

She walked in dressed in a tangerine blazer, fuchsia wide-leg pants and bright lips. She was warm, open and friendly. After a meeting with Jackie, she quickly selected the pieces she loved the most. My highlight was Solange picking out and putting on the Loin Cloth & Ashes shorts, Tart top and Pichulik rope bracelets. As soon as she emerged from the changing room, I thought: ‘That’s the cover outfit.’

She teamed brights, prints and different textures, and wore clothes by South African designers. I love the cover – it’s my favourite one of the year. The yellow background is perfect for her sunny personality. This was a big fashion coup for us, and I am proud to be part of the ELLE team.
