Chrisette Michele Feels ‘R&B Divas LA,’ Reality TV Was a Mistake

After starring on R&B Divas Los Angeles, Chrisette Michele seems to have some regrets about being on reality TV. The singer, who initially surprised fans by joining the cast, has expressed her concerns in an open letter on Instagram.

In the lengthy post, Chrisette reflects on the criticism she’s received for being on the hit show.

“Dear fans, Maybe you were right about me not doing a reality show. I have had so much fun staying beneath the radar,” she begins. “I’ve traveled to more countries then I can pronounce and made friends of fans and celebs alike, collabed with my favorite artists (you know I’m a nerdy hip-hop head). Truth is, I wasn’t raised on R&B. I just happen to sound okay singing it.”

She then addressed how she’s portrayed on the show — particularly the episode in which she declined to sing background for Chante Moore’s new single, causing many critics to label her a snob.

“I’ve never thought that wearing angel wings and trying to be open about feelings would make people send me evil tweets and receive awful phone calls,” she writes before adding, “maybe reality was a mistake.”

“Some people aren’t meant to share their personality. Maybe I’m one of those people,” she adds. “I don’t see myself doing reality again… This negativity is tragic and I can’t transfer these vibes to my art. I love you. I won’t speak negativity against any one on the show in any further interviews.”
