The rumor appears to be true: Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes may be fired from The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

But Tameka Raymond has spoken out and clarified her role in this controversial story: she won’t be taking part in the hit Bravo series.

“While I am flattered at the rumor circulating about being considered to join the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, I am absolutely not joining the cast,” Usher’s ex told E! News. “I was initially approached by the producers for last season and declined. At this point, my priorities are focusing on being a mom and my philanthropy, Lost Ones Foundation.”

Raymond and Usher ended their marriage this summer, but not without a few blow-ups first. In October, the singer claimed Tameka keyed his car.

In other words: she seems perfect for reality TV!

Still, Raymond’s rep backs up his client and says she and Usher are getting along okay these days.

“She hasn’t talked to anyone from [Housewives] since 2008, and she would never consider doing it. Her life is very private,” he said. “She’s coparenting with Usher, and they are enjoying parenting together right now.”
