Well, that was nice while it lasted.
We were impressed with Real Housewives of Atlanta when we heard that the docu-series had cast its first ever transgender housewife… but the latest news of the ATL is anything but inspiring.
After just a month of filming, trans actress Amiyah Scott has already quit!

Apparently, the 27-year-old almost-Bravolebrity wanted to be seen as a transgender role model… but producers only wanted to make her a sex symbol in front of the cameras while simultaneously giving her a villain edit!
Former costar Kandi Burruss confirmed the exit on Instagram on Monday, saying:
"I hate that it didn't work out. I enjoyed taping with you the few times we did tape. 😘 Bigger & Better things ahead in your future!"
Luckily for Amiyah, she already has her next high profile gig lined up because earlier in December she landed a lead role on Lee Daniels' upcoming Empire spin-off about Cookie's life before prison!
It's unclear if her taped RHOA scenes will make it to air since the season oddly began before Bravo had finished filming, but we doubt she'll be getting the full housewife introduction now.
Can't wait to see you in a more positive setting, Amiyah!
