Jenny-McCarthy-Miss-Lawrence-Skype-Interview-JM-Show-SirusXM-RHOA

Lawrence Washington aka “Miss Lawrence” made men’s heels fashionable on The Real Housewives of Atlanta as hair stylist to Sheree Whitfield, and shade-thrower to many. But his talents don’t end there. Some may recall Lawrence’s incredible pipes – a singing voice that got him noticed by friend and music producer, Kandi Burruss. Though Lawrence didn’t ultimately sign with Kandi’s production company, he did go on to parlay his powerful voice (and acting chops) into a role on Fox’s series, Star, as recurring character “Miss Bruce.”

This doesn’t mean he severed connections with the women of RHOA though. When Miss Lawrence stopped by the Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM, he had plenty to say about the series that got him noticed, and the women who continue to do battle on it. Specifically, Lawrence tells Jenny why he didn’t sign with Kandi, how he thinks Kenya Moore’s marriage is legit, and why he feels like the women of RHOA have culturally appropriated the terms “shade” and “read” from the LGBTQ community.

Amiyah-Scott-Instagram-Cover-0011

Former Real Housewives of Atlanta could-have-been-regular cast member Amiyah Scott was supposed to be a fixture on the Bravo hit reality show but was reportedly, so put off by the producer’s antics, she called it quits.   Despite all of the show’s fanfare and praise for featuring Amiyah, as its first transgender cast member in the franchise, she refused to be the stereotype that the show’s producers wanted her to portray according to TMZ.

Amiyah had actually made the one month of filming mark on RHOA. When the show’s plots smacked of devious underpinnings like producers wanting to sexualize Amiyah and have her act “like a vixen” which was not in her character, her patience grew thin. The news outlet then claims, the actress went on to reveal how producers wanted to make her look like the “bitch of the cast,” when she instead strived to become a transgender role model.
