LisaRaye McCoy says she turned down Really Housewives” because she has ‘a legitimate career‘

McCoy revealed that she was approached by Bravo executives seven years ago to be part of their Real Housewives franchise.

But McCoy was not interested. “I politely gave them the ‘No Thank You.’ I actually have a legitimate career,” she told The YBF podcast.

She referred to reality television as “buffoonery” that only shows negativity. At this stage in her life as a mother and grandmother, McCoy says the compromising situations arranged by production on the show would only lead to her potentially getting physical with a cast member in a heated argument. “I’d be sued,” she declared.
