At one point, there were whispers of the actress, who is currently dating radio jock, Big Tigger, joining the cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

Keshia explains why that’s not an option for her.

To each his own. I’m not here to judge what anyone else chooses to do. That’s their decision; it’s a personal one for them. For me, it’s not the choice nor the direction that I choose to go in. Anything I do, I do it with the integrity of who I am, and if it’s not authentically me, then it’s not for me. You’re telling the world firsthand who you are. As an actor, you’re playing different characters, but who you are as a person and as a woman is priceless, and I would never allow anyone to dictate who I am. If I were to ever do it, I would want to be involved as an executive producer through the process of editing. I would very much so be in the driver’s seat of how I’m presented.
