Amiyah Scott Real Housewives of Atlanta
In 2015 Amiyah taped for reality series Real Housewives of Atlanta for four weeks but the scenes she was in never aired due to creative differences between her and the show producers.
Amiyah posted a video on Instagram and in the caption she explained why she left the show. She said she was not filming for attention, but to break stereotypes about transgender.

Welp 🤗 seeing as that was the 1st (and probably last) glimpse of me on #RHOA tonight and I haven’t said anything about it (though the hype was craaazzzzzyyy) lmao. Let me say, I enjoyed ALL the ladies & I had a great time filming multiple scenes with them! Unfortunately due to contractual complications + the magic of editing, you won’t be seeing as much of me as expected. *whispers* (I don’t work for free. Lol. 😊) But everything happens for a reason & it was still an awesome experience! I’m in my 20’s and when this opportunity was BROUGHT to me, It was no guarantees & I was cool with that, but I wasn’t going to exploit myself or act out of character for it… I honestly saw a chance to help change the perspective of MY community, but I wanted to maintain my dignity. Housewife and Transgender aren’t words that are usually associated… Funny, because anyone who knows me knows that being a housewife is a dream of mine, not on reality tv, but in real life. 👰🏽 But contrary to popular belief, I personally know transgender housewives, models, doctors, lawyers and many other successful unique individuals, along with so many others who are fighting to break the negative stigma associated with the trans community. Not to mention, a lot of our opportunities are limited due to discrimination and that’s why most are forced into compromising occupations. But my point in this is to say, me filming with the #RealHousewivesOfAtlanta was not for attention, but to assist in breaking a stereotype. Trans women are not only sex objects or prostitutes. We are strong, educated & human just like everyone else. AND WE ARE HERE AND WE DEMAND RESPECT. And whatever I have to do to assist in that I will and won’t regret it. Now let me call my bf and schedule a hair appointment. 😂🙃😉
A source later said that Amiyah was never an official housewife or an official friend of the housewives. The source also claimed that Amiyah’s Instagram post was surprising and that she never raised any issues with anything that happened at the time of taping.
“Amiyah did work with a fellow housewife on her lingerie show. When she was asked if she wanted to wear the clothing, she politely declined. Nothing more, nothing less.”
Amiyah has, however, said she is open to doing reality TV again.
“When you’re on scripted TV, you’re playing a character. But I want to show people who I am. I’ve learned to never say never, so I would be open to doing reality TV again…for the right check of course.”
