Season 2 of the TV One reality tv show R&B Divas L.A. is currently underway & so far viewers have learned some new things about the shows new cast members Leela James & Chrisette Michele. Viewers of the show has taken a deeper look into their lives that certainly goes beyond the beautiful music they create to help give their fans a better understanding of who they are as people. While the show is very entertaining it looks like one of the shows singers is not have much fun at all. Ms. Chrisette has written a letter to her fans via social media & she opens up about her feeling about doing reality television & maybe it was a bad decision to open this new chapter in her life & career. 

Read the letter after the cut.

"Hey can I write you a letter? Dear fans, Maybe you were right about me not doing a reality show. I have had so much fun staying beneath the radar. 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. 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. A Diva. Maybe that’s not the right term for artists now a days the way it was when Whitney was here. Maybe it’s meaning has changed. I’m truly just here to say hello. On your TV screens to show you who I am outside of this music/Hollywood stuff. Maybe reality was a mistake. Maybe I should stay in my comfortable cave where I’m only loved. Half a million twitter followers, 200k insta Rich Hipster’s and 2.1 million Facebook likes have come from the music alone. From backstage hugs and kisses. From marriage proposals on my open hearted stage. From my quirky ever changing style. From hellos on the streets. From meet & greets. The moments un-telivised. Some people aren’t meant to share their personality. Maybe I’m one of those people. One of those who are protected by the Art. Art is love and it covers. It shields. I don’t see myself doing reality again. I’ll hang out with my pet unicorn in Artist-ville. 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. I won’t speak the name of people who quell my light. I can’t participate in brokenness. Healing is my ambition. Light is my nourishment. Be well. The Rich Hipster Captain #chrisette #ChrisetteMichele #Art #RichHipster #randbdivasLA #rbdivasla #rbdivas #iamstillhere #itsByTheGraceOfGod"

It's good that Chrisette was open & honest with her loyal fans & her feeling on doing reality television. As most of us already know, reality tv is not for everyone & most people do not was to open their lives up for the entire world to see & judge them. Many people strongly dislike how the editing of these drama filled shows make their character look negative when in everyday life they are the complete opposite.
