*According to KeKe Wyatt, she’s misunderstood.
And that’s partly why she has problems getting along with “R&B Divas: Atlanta” co-star Monifah Carter on the show.
Although she admitted there are many reasons that caused them to bump heads, her race might have something to do with it.
“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.”
Wyatt opened up about her communication problems and how conflict can be a result of it.
“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.”
But she believes being a biracial woman has something to do with it.
“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,” she said.
Wyatt said other biracial people can relate to her struggles with identity.
“Talk to other people [who are mixed race], they all say the same stuff. It’s like looking in the mirror,” she 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.”
But sometimes it could just be the things Wyatt says. During Carter’s engagement party, Wyatt made a comment that heavily upset her cast mates.
Nevertheless, she has nothing, but love.
“I love everybody. I just wish they understood me better,” she said. “It makes me cray a lot.”
