Karlie Redd says Tyler Perry turned her down for a movie role…Now how is that shocking? SMH.
The VH1 star told KYSDC.com that being on reality TV messed up a major opportunity for her. “LHHATL” fans have seen that the singer is trying out the acting game as she builds her brand. So far, she’s only been spotted on film set this season, but it’s not for lack of her trying.
Karlie’s actually gone out for a role with one of Black Hollywood’s hottest directors, but she was passed over for a part because of her reality show. “I went for a role for a Tyler Perry film and they shot me down because I was on ‘Love and Hip Hop,’” Karlie shared. “Reality TV has been known to have a lot of drama, but like NeNe [Leakes] said, it also has been a blessing.”
Tyler hasn’t been the only director to pass on putting Karlie in a movie, though. She revealed that she’s literally been cut from a role moments before arriving on set several times.
“There’s been roles that I auditioned for and then they found out,” Karlie said, “Literally I’m on my way to set to work, got the role and everything and then they find out I’m on the show and then they’re like, ‘Uh, no.’” SOURCE
