Amiyah Scott already made a cameo on The Real Housewives of Atlanta but don’t expect the transgender model to resurface on the Bravo series. Scott claims she quit due to “contractual complications” and did not want to exploit herself while producers are reportedly claiming that she simply got fired.

Scott took to Instagram to explain the reason why she left The Real Housewives of Atlanta, suggesting that Bravo producers were encouraging her to bring on more drama. “I’m in my 20’s and when this opportunity was BROUGHT to me, it was no guarantees & I was cool with that, but I wasn’t going to exploit myself or act out of character for it,” she wrote.
Welp ðŸ¤— seeing as that was the 1st (and probably last) glimpse of me on #RHOA tonight and I haven’t said anything about it (though the hype was craaazzzzzyyy) lmao. Let me say, I enjoyed ALL the ladies & I had a great time filming multiple scenes with them! Unfortunately due to contractual complications + the magic of editing, you won’t be seeing as much of me as expected. *whispers* (I don’t work for free. Lol. ðŸ˜Š) But everything happens for a reason & it was still an awesome experience! I’m in my 20’s and when this opportunity was BROUGHT to me, It was no guarantees & I was cool with that, but I wasn’t going to exploit myself or act out of character for it… I honestly saw a chance to help change the perspective of MY community, but I wanted to maintain my dignity. Housewife and Transgender aren’t words that are usually associated… Funny, because anyone who knows me knows that being a housewife is a dream of mine, not on reality tv, but in real life. ðŸ‘°ðŸ½ But contrary to popular belief, I personally know transgender housewives, models, doctors, lawyers and many other successful unique individuals, along with so many others who are fighting to break the negative stigma associated with the trans community. Not to mention, a lot of our opportunities are limited due to discrimination and that’s why most are forced into compromising occupations. But my point in this is to say, me filming with the #RealHousewivesOfAtlanta was not for attention, but to assist in breaking a stereotype. Trans women are not only sex objects or prostitutes. We are strong, educated & human just like everyone else. AND WE ARE HERE AND WE DEMAND RESPECT. And whatever I have to do to assist in that I will and won’t regret it. Now let me call my bf and schedule a hair appointment. ðŸ˜‚ðŸ™ƒðŸ˜‰
A source tells Radar Online that she was urged to be more “sexy” and “b****y” but she declined. “She wanted to be a role model for the trans community,” a show insider explained. “Like the Laverne Cox for reality TV.”
Meanwhile, producers of RHOA are claiming otherwise. According to TMZ‘s insider, Scott got a trial run and just didn’t make the cut because she was boring.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays at 8pm on Bravo.
