KeKe Wyatt admits that she’s a misunderstood individual and “R&B Divas: Atlanta” viewers caught of glimpse of how that can cause problems when KeKe bumped heads with co-star Monifah Carter.
While the conflicts are nothing new for KeKe, she said she just recently began to think that maybe it has something to do with her being a biracial woman.
“Ain’t nothing I can do. I can’t change. I’m just going to be me,” KeKe told Sister 2 Sister. “That’s a lot of the reason me and Monifah have been clashing.”
KeKe said people just tend to take things she says the wrong way, and she is going to try to work on her delivery in the future.
“It’s very frustrating,” she said. “Maybe I can work on my delivery on how I talk to people, things that I say, when I say stuff and when I shouldn’t say something.”
KeKe said the only people who don’t seem to misunderstand her are people who are also mixed race.
“There are so many people, especially women in particular, who are biracial. They go through the same stuff and feel the same way. I wasn’t Black enough for the Black girls. I wasn’t White enough for the White girls. Nobody understands me,” said KeKe she just recently began thinking that her communication struggles might be tied to her racial identity.
“Talk to other people [who are mixed race], they all say the same stuff. It’s like looking in the mirror,” KeKe said. “When I’m with them, I feel safe. I feel like ain’t nothing I can say that can make them be like, ‘What?!’ I do feel more understood by them for some reason or another.”
On the show, KeKe’s co-stars are all African-American and she gets along with most of them. However, there are times when arguments arise, like in the season 3 premiere episode.
During Monifah’s engagement party, KeKe made a comment that led to a blow up among the cast members. It remains to be seen whether any of the relationships she has with her co-stars was permanently damaged.
“I love everybody. I just wish they understood me better,” said KeKe. “It makes me cray a lot.”
