It was certainly a surprise to fans after season two of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” when series original, Lisa Wu, decided to walk away from the show. But this year, Wu returned to reality TV on “Hollywood Divas” and with the attention on Wu again, she’s letting fans in on why she walked away from her first reality TV hit.
In an interview with TheJasmineBrand.com, Wu explained that she made her departure from “RHOA” because the series stopped feeling “real” to her.
“Well you know, it was just a difference of creativity. And you know, my thing is because I write movies, I produce, I don’t feel the need to perform and if you’re telling me what I should be doing and what my storyline should be then it sounds scripted to me. If it’s scripted, let me do d— scripted. If it’s reality, let it be reality,” Wu said.
She added, “For me, I just bowed out because I don’t have to do that. I’m always a person that you never sell out. At the end of the day you have to like who you see in the mirror. You have to have integrity and like who you see. I have to look in the mirror and see myself. So I’m okay with that, there were certain things that I just would not do.”
