Shamari DeVoe Says She Quit ‘RHOA’ Due To Poor Editing; Says “They Wanted To Show Me With My Little Wine And Make It Seem Like I’m Just This Drunk”

Shamari DeVoe admits that she was unhappy about how she was portrayed when she appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta

The mother-of-two notes that editing was the reason why she decided not to return to the Bravo hit reality series.

“There’s a lot in editing, so they make you look like something that you’re not. So there was a scene that I did during [RHOA] that was about couples and learning different tools and skills to keep your relationship going. And they cut that whole scene out. But they wanted to show me with my lil wine and make it seem like I’m just this drunk or whatever. But that’s not me–there’s a balance,” she told The Jasmine Brand.

“Like they didn’t show the fact that I was doing the Married 4 Life Walk, that I was helping people come together, and the thing about [me drinking on camera is] I hadn’t drank in like 2 years because I was pregnant with the boys, I was breastfeeding. When I got on [RHOA] they [were] just shoving drinks at [me] left and right… So I’m like ‘Okay cool, I can finally get away from the twins’…[The drinks] went straight to the head.”

Shamari admits that she would be open for a future RHOA return. 

“But I love all of the ladies on the show, and I love them and I wish them well. And I’m not saying I would never go back to [RHOA] or anything like that, but it just has to be right for me and my family… [The editing] got to the point where my mother was saying ‘Shamari, [why] are you drinking so much? Are you an alcoholic?'”

DeVoe added that she would like to star on her own show with her family. 

“I would love [a family show]. I would do that. Like I would sign a contract today. I would do that–I already have the name. It’s called DeVoeted. It’s going down–like seriously, I would do that in a heartbeat. I’m so big on family–I love my family, and I want the world to see the ups and downs in marriages and how difficult it is raising toddlers when you’re a geriatric mom and a geriatric dad. My husband is 53, [and] he doesn’t have any other kids–these are his first kids. So it’s like ‘Man, your energy isn’t all of that.’ It’s hilarious. If y’all was a fly on the wall in our house, y’all would be cracking up laughing at everything that happens in here.”
