Shamari DeVoe & Ronnie DeVoe

It’s not every day that a Housewife walks away from the limelight on their own accord. Let’s just say these roles attract a certain time of fame-seeker. But, there are exceptions to every rule.

Following her single-season appearance in season 11 of Real Housewives of AtlantaShamari DeVoe made it very clear to her fans and critics that she was NOT fired from the franchise. Instead, the singer who was brought on by her pal Kandi Burruss decided to leave the show on her own. If you blinked, you may have missed Shamari’s time on RHOA. Personally? I adored her.

Tyra Banks

Pretty much all I remember about America’s Next Top Model is that Shandi Sullivan had sex with someone who wasn’t her boyfriend in a hot tub night one. I can’t seem to remember important dates or facts but this is somehow burned in my memory bank. The real point, however, is that I didn’t watch ANTM. That reason was Tyra Banks.

In the early years of ANTM she also had a talk show, Tyra. It was focused on “women’s issues” and often featured women from ANTM. That way, Tyra could make Tyra all about herself. Now, for whatever reason, she’s hosting Dancing With the Stars and banning any and all Housewives.
