DeShawn Snow No Longer a ‘Real’ Housewife: May be Replaced by Tameka Foster or Dorys Erving

DeShawn lacked the fire necessary for Reality TV and she’s been canned. Rumor is Bravo is courting and the best looking woman in the entire state of Georgia, to replace her. My vote is for Dorys…. I am starting a campaign this afternoon…

Some say that was the quiet in the storm of drama that rained on Bravo’s dramality series “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” In reality television, playing it safe doesn’t lure viewers or make the grade; when it comes to ratings, only diva antics, tension and catfights will do. As the remaining ladies—Lisa Wu Hartwell, NeNe Leakes, Sheree Whitfield and Kim Kolciak—gear up for the second installment, Snow learned on Monday that she would not be returning to the cast. Snow spoke candidly with ESSENCE.com about the call that hurt her, why Bravo won’t be able to replace her, and how she plans to keep it moving.

ESSENCE.COM: We hear that you are no longer returning to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Is that true?

DESHAWN SHOW: Yes, one of the producers called me yesterday and said that they wouldn’t take my option.

ESSENCE.COM: What reason did they give for not inviting you back for the second season?

SNOW: [One of the producers] called and said that I was “too human for a circus show” and that because the show did so well, they are about to pump up the drama and they didn’t think that I would fit in. He gave me an example, saying that during the reunion when I found out what a few of the other ladies said about me, they were expecting me to say more, but I’m not the type to go “television” and start acting crazy because somebody’s talking about me. I’m fine with the decision. It wasn’t my decision. They let me go and there are no hard feelings. I am thankful for the opportunity.
