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?
