This week, rumors have surfaced that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” newcomer Demetria McKinney has been fired from the show. But according to McKinney, the rumors are absolutely false.

In a recent interview with HelloBeautiful.com, McKinney addressed the rumors that she was fired, as well as rumors that she was banned from last week’s reunion taping.

“There have been rumors circulating that I was fired from ‘RHOA’ and ‘banned’ from the reunion set. This is completely untrue. Let me ‘Keep it 100.’ I was not ‘banned’ from the reunion set nor was I fired from the show. I am under contract for this season just like the rest of the cast. Fortunately, because of the platform the show has provided for me, my music career has escalated and that will always come first,” McKinney said.

McKinney the assured that she will continue to balance her life between “RHOA” and her music career.

“In addition to continuing to support ‘RHOA,’ I am currently busy with my live performances as well as preparing for the upcoming Funkfest Tour that I have been added to with R. Kelly, SWV and Erykah Badu. Thank you to all the ‘RHOA’ fans out there who continue support ‘100’ and my new single ‘Trade It All’ and don’t forget to check out the video with cameos from my girls Claudia and Cynthia,” she said.

It sounds like McKinney may not show up at the reunion, but at least she’s still under contract for the show.
