Time and time again, I wonder why anyone (straight up fame whores aside) would choose to invite the drama that is reality TV into their lives. Especially people that seem to already have a lot going for them. Perhaps the appeal of hair pulling, table tossing, and insult slinging just escapes me???
For example, the Style Network bios for Sharlinda Parker and Kahdijiha Rowe are quite impressive, and I can't help but to wonder why reality TV!? Sharlinda is a celebrity manicurist and the co-owner of Tu La Nail Salon, which she runs with sister Brie Rowe. She's also married to recording artist Q. Parker. Kahdijiha is a marketing executive and considered a "jet-setter" in Atlanta's social scene.
When asked why she chose to play the reality tv game, Sharlinda said, "To become a household name, build your business, have fun with it, everyone knows you, that's the benefit of being on a reality show." Okay. Fine. I can understand the business benefits. But, when you then come into contact with people like you know who, I have to go back to thinking they're all crazy.
"To all of my friends, family, and now tv fans I want to publicly & sincerely apologize for the trashy violent mess on television. It's embarrassing & utterly sickening to see violence being promoted on television. It was NOT what I signed up for, nor what I stand for, and certainly not what I expected to be a victim of ever in my life," Ashleewrote. "Please accept my apology for this behavior and contributing to tearing down our society by being a part of such shenanigans."
Kahdijiha's aunt Sabrina Brie Rowetweeted to Ashlee, "The only crime here was U got into a fight that you started #NotAttacked" and "My family believes 100% in nonviolence as well! If someone touch U first & being racist it's call defending yourself #DONE!"
I agree. Ashlee picked a fight… insulting her, poking her, grabbing her… and then cried victim when Kahdijiha reacted. The only "trashy violent mess" I saw is the one pictured above.
While Ashlee has said Kahdijiha randomly and violently attacked her by ripping out chunks of her hair, tearing her clothes, and throwing her to the ground, an inside source tells us that isn't quite how it went down. Our source exclusively shared, "Ashlee's version of events were totally fabricated. There is footage that shows Ashlee throwing a glass at Kahdijiha and Kahdijiha was simply defending herself."
Do the stars of Big Rich Atlanta have more mug shots than pairs of shoes? The first episode hasn't even aired yet and we're finding out all the tea this crazy new show!
Back in October Starcasm detailed the brutal attack between cast members Kahdijiha Rowe and Ashlee Wilson-Hawn at the Havana club in Atlanta where they were celebrating Ashlee's 28th birthday. After an altercation occurred over a cake incident (wait, who invited Sarah Winchester from RHOC?), it left Ashlee with a torn dress, hair ripped from her head (photos below!), scratches and more.
This was definitely no "made for the TV cameras" brawl and Ashlee immediately filed a complaint. The cameras caught it all and rumor had it that the powers-that-be begged her not to proceed with legal action, but she refused to sign off and quit the show. We know this isn't exactly true, as Ashlee simply took a medical leave from the show.
