Chrisette Michele Pens Open Letter About R&B Divas LA: 'Maybe Reality Was A Mistake'

Joining R&B Divas LA may have been a mistake for Chrisette Michelle.  According to BET Centric, when Chrisette Michele announced that she would be joining the cast of TV One's reality series R&B Divas: LA, fans of the Grammy-winning singer warned that the move wasn't the greatest. Now it seems after a month on the small screen, she's realizing those warnings have become her "tragic" reality. 

Check out what Chrisette Michele wrote in an open letter posted on her Instagram below:

"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" 

Sidebar: I like Chrisette and I think she could do reality and it be positive but maybe on her own show. It's always going to be drama when you add different people, their opinions, a TV network, and some cameras to create a show. It is just how it goes, especially if that is what has already been established and money has been made off that formula.
