Apparently there's no room for low-key on reality TV. DeShawn Snow
, the most reserved cast member on Bravo's The Real Housewives of Atlanta
, will not be returning for the season's second season, she tells Essence.com
"One of the producers called me yesterday and said that they wouldn't take my option," Snow tells the site. The reason the producer gave for letting her go, she says, is she was "too human for a circus show."
"It wasn't my decision," Snow says. "They let me go and there are no hard feelings. I am thankful for the opportunity."
But the decision did come as a surprise. "I was shocked because I just talked to the producers in December about the new season," Snow says.
The rest of the RHOA
cast -- Kim Zolciak, NeNe Leakes, Sheree Whitfield
and Lisa Wu Hartwell
-- are all expected to return for the second season.
"Bravo is bringing Atlanta
back for season two but we haven't confirmed the cast at this time," a Bravo rep tells PEOPLE.
"At the end of the day, I was the same person throughout the show," says Snow. "I never changed. I was authentic and true to myself and I can't control what other do." --Mark Dagostino
