Being the only person in history to sign the United States Declaration of Independence and appear on reality television isn’t enough to impress the likes of Tyler Perry.
One of our nation’s founding fathers, Karlie Redd, says the entertainment mogul turned her down for a film role because she’s a ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ cast member.
This still doesn’t explain why Bokeem Woodbine has yet to be cast as Ain’t Shit Nigga #1 in a movie from the ‘Madea’ franchise, but that’s a complaint for another day.
“I went for a role for a Tyler Perry film and they shot me down because I was on ‘Love & Hip Hop,’” Karlie shared with KYSDC.com. “Reality TV has been known to have a lot of drama, but like NeNe [Leakes] said, ‘it also has been a blessing.’”
Doesn’t this make you feel sad on the inside? You would think her seasoned reputation for leaking dick pictures would be enough to snag her reservations at Ty Ty’s table but nooooo. Bitches want to act brand new.
This isn’t the first time she’s been thrown from the horse she was riding at the rodeo once her affiliation with ratchet reality television is revealed. According to Karlie, she’s been placed on the chopping block from a role moments before arriving on set several times.
“There’s been roles that I auditioned for and then they found out,” she explained. “Literally I’m on my way to set to work, got the role and everything and then they find out I’m on the show and then they’re like, ‘Uh, no.’”
