Chrisette Michele Bows Out of R&B Divas: L.A.


It appears singer Chrisette Michele is having second thoughts about her decision to join the cast of “R&B Divas: LA.”

I have not personally been keeping up with this show, but I didn’t need to be in order to know that this show was nothing but a train wreck waiting to happen.

Season one was a bitch fest thanks to the antics of 90s singer Lil Mo, so I really didn’t expect season two to be any different.

Chrisette apparently thought she could bring something more to the table, however, after being on the receiving end of one too many not so nice social media attacks (thanks mostly to her comments about Chante Moore), Chrisette has decided to throw in the towel and opt out of appearing on season three.

In an open letter to her fans via Instagram, Chisette lamented her time on the show, calling it a mistake and saying she should have listened to her fans’ reservations.

Read Chisette’s apology to fans 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”


  1. This truly should’ve never happened in the first place. I saw this mess coming when I first heard of her going to reality tv. I consider myself a fan of no one. Just someone who has listened to a few of her songs. It’s funny how the outsider looking in’s perspective can be clear compared to the actual person involved. Sometimes it’s okay to not be apart of everything. To let the trend pass you by. I don’t watch that show but sometimes holding onto the little mystique one can have in this overly open world we are forced to live in is something to cherish because people always come off looking a damn fool in those kinds of shows.

  2. I am not surprised CM was a little too together for this show. I use to like Lil Mo but she loves ratchet way too much for it to be real and she always stirring the pot.

  3. Good for Chrisette, she hit it and quit! This venture helped to remind the public who she is or is not, how much she has accomplished and her industry relevancy in contrast to other cast members and others on the scene. It was risky, but unlike Dawn or Kelly Price, she came in and left without all the major damage. We don’t need to see too much of these celebs, eventually, it will be crash and burn for many. Fame is indeed a downward spiral. Chrisette, like Jill and others, will always be able to tour and make a living and have enough mils to have career autonomy and make boss moves!

  4. Chrisette she just gets on my nerves
    something dont seem right.Lil mo has she lost it. Talking about God on one hand and cousing u out on the other hand .
