She mentions the recent conversations with mentors like Wendy Williams and Vivica A. Fox that gave her advice in making her decision on what’s more important: money, or impact on the culture.

Her plans are to focus on family, continue on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, and continuously find ways to be a voice for people of color during this time.  Aside from the morning show, she has a CBD oil company and a bedding line.

Ending with support and love to the cast she says, “I love every single one of those black women. They are all queens all in their own right. They are stars and I wish them the most successful season and transformational season 13 that the Real Housewives of Atlanta has ever seen.”
