Real Housewives of Atlanta’s original snazzy suit snazzy suit wearing hairdresser Dwight Eubanks has decided he is “absolutely not” returning to Real Housewives! Dwight explains remaining involved in the series is the dwrong thing to do given all the bitchy, backstabbing nonsense involved with the show!
In a conversation with BET,
Dwight explains: “It was very time-consuming and I only did the Real Housewives of Atlanta to promote [his Purple Door Salon] and out of three years, they have not yet shown what I really do. I’ve had a salon for over 25 years and they just refuse to show it. It does not make sense.” Interesting, considering Bravo (tirelessly) promotes all the other housewives’ ventures – and those of their husbands, boyfriends, families, etc. – while in Dwight’s case his role centers around his frienemy relationship with NeNeLeakes and his party planning skills! Oh, and his snarky comments – which are gold.
Dwight elaborates the drama is just too embarrassing much: “We can entertain you, but you still need to be educated. That’s what’s lacking in the television industry. It’s so much buffoonery and craziness out there. I just can’t do it. I refuse to do it.”
Dwight isn’t done with reality TV however, since he apparently has a hair-centered reality show in the works: “They’re still trying to figure out what to do with me. You have to realize: I’m 50 years old. Therefore, it has to be something that makes sense and has substance.” Well, Dwight – you, your snark, and your over-the-top personality will definitely be missed! Who is going to ballroom dance with Phaedra now?
As for his now former castmates, including real-life friend Phaedra, no one has mentioned Dwight’s departure on Twitter or Facebook. Although NeNe posted she is currently hosting The TVGuide Channel’s “Most Notorious Celebrity Feuds.” Well, that’s the perfect gig for her given she’s probably included in the list!
Are you sad Dwight is leaving the show? Are you surprised? Would you watch a reality show about Dwight’s salon?
