‘Black Ink Crew’ Star Dutchess Responds After a Fan Tells Her She Should Return to the Show

By: Amanda Anderson-Niles

“Black Ink Crew” is having an eventful season. Sky is at odds with her youngest son Des. After he attempted to make amends, things went left. And a physical altercation occurred. Sky also said some very controversial things to Des that resulted in her getting backlash from viewers and other reality stars. As a result of her actions, she has since been suspended from the show.

There’s also been a lot of drama between Miss Kitty and Ceaser. After Tati told Cease that Kitty slept with Ryan, she was fired. She’s currently at odds with multiple people from the New York crew. And she’s been getting called out left and right from the crew on social media.

So she relocated to 2nd City Ink.

As all the drama continues to unfold, one person who doesn’t regret walking away is Dutchess. She responded after a fan told her that the show needs her to return.

    Rare to see women who actually leave after being blatantly disrespected by a man. I could not stand her on the show but I’m proud of her

      Great job you Beautiful Queen Dutchess I don’t blame you we need more women like you to keep telling us never let a man disrespect you

    Dutchess made the right decision and I hope she never goes back on that show. All money ain’t good money.

        I forgot about Donna’s crazy a-s. She freaked me out TBH, I couldn’t be serious when I saw her. I only saw one or two episodes but did see short clips of her shenanigans.

          Come on now. I don’t think this fan ment any harm wanting Dutchess back on the show. Should she go back on the show???? Of course not but some fans do miss Dutchess on the show. I know I do. It’s ok to tell your fans that you don’t want to appear on the show. Fans will understand but don’t get mad at them for loving and missing you.

        Yeah she was the worst when ahe was on the show…Hope she never comes back. I’ll stop watchin if she does.

          And? It’s not like you no longer watching would make a difference. Most people have already stopped watching since she left the show. Black Ink doesn’t even crack a million viewers an episode anymore. People are tired of the fake storylines. You would think you all would have enough sense to realize now that this show is fake. And that includes the storylines Dutchess was a part of. Move on. She sure has.

          March 10, 2020 at 6:46 pm

          Wrong. Her shop is open and thriving. You should stop listening to the lies that come out of Sky’s mouth. Remember when she said her sons were twins? Stop hating on Dutchess. She left the show. Move on and stop defaming her.

      • Shannon

        March 10, 2020 at 6:49 pm

        Oh please. How do you not understand the show was fake back then and fake now?

    Nope. She’s happy and prospering. So she needs to stay away.

  5. K.stasi

    March 9, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    Why in h-ll would she want to return to the h-ll scape that is black in crew. She got her own shop & she is doing her own thing. That fan is crazy into thinking that she would be back just cause sky has been suspended.

    She’s smart. She did good to put her focus into starting her own shop and getting off TV looking crazy for a check. Funny how she got bashed the most when she was on the show and she’s doing much better than most of the people still there.

    Dutchess stand your ground do not return you still have 2 faced Donna on the show just waiting for you to return she can skin and grin in your face and stab you in the back,, Sky was loud and wacko from the jump what mom acts like that with there kids

    F-ck ditches she was a master manipulator when on the show she tried to cause ceased to lose all his true friendships and family members and was after what he was building I canโ€™t stand a woman who lies dead to ppls faces like when she looked sassy in the face and said Ted was the one who said he f-cked her and was the person who started that joke /rumor but was her all along she was and h-ll no she should never attempt to get back on the show that made who she is f-ck her let her stay where the f-ck she at nowhere and never going anywhere.

    • Shannon

      March 9, 2020 at 3:52 pm

      Hush misogynist. This show didn’t make Dutchess. If that was the case, everyone else on the show would be successful but they aren’t. Dutchess is college educated. Don’t let the fake storylines you see on the show have you confused out here. Since leaving, Dutchess has her own successful shop. She’s winning awards for her work in the community. She has a radio career as well. And she’s opening up a funeral home. Reality shows don’t make people successful. Ambition and drive do. And Dutchess has both. Continue to be mad though.

      Reality shows never show the true person’s success or their true selves. What you see isn’t always what you get which in this case dutchess is a successful person w/ her own shop w/ her college education & other things she’s doing behind the scenes. Wasn’t a fan of the show,but, I saw an interview of her after she left b.i.c & she showed her true self,so don’t get crazy cause you didn’t like what you saw in the end of the day, she’s not gunna be there so don’t trip.

      Come on man. I don’t know who she thinks shes fooling, but it ain’t me! Im pretty sure her season ended with her setting Ceaser up to look like he cheated, cause she was wanted to be with someone else. Whom btw.. Ceaser apparently talked to and was told she had given him some furniture Ceaser bought for Dutchess!… So yeah, you can PLAY the strong woman who walked away from a bad man if you want to, but it appears you started that sh-t! The only thing attacking you is Karma girl.. stop playing

      • Anonymous

        March 10, 2020 at 12:06 pm

        But you have been fooled. The storylines on Black Ink are fake. None of that was even real. And Karma has clearly been on Dutchess’ side because she’s doing better than just about everyone else on the show. You should be happy to see a black woman leave a toxic reality show and do well. But umm okay.

        • Shannon

          March 10, 2020 at 6:55 pm

          Thank you. I can’t believe that people still think Black Ink is real. The show has been fake for a very long time.

    She was getting on my nerves.. But she was about the business and expanding the brand as well as establishing her own. Thats highly respected. It took a while but i understand what she was trying to do. Between her and kitty they both been done wrong. Ceasar is changing a little bit but like they all say its TVthank God for Puma and Sassy

      Dutchess thus is for u every relationship must go thru a trial it builds u as a woman and ceasar seems lost without u u two were good for each other never let another ruin what u have secure it ceasar us a good man and he deserves a good woman the show needs you back don’t lose something good

    March 9, 2020 at 5:18 pm

    The person in the comments asked her are there any og cast member(s) that she missed and Dutchess went off. I feel like once you get to a level of being over something your over it and will show.

      Clearly this blog shows that someone does want Dutchess to come back. But she doesn’t want to because she doesn’t need the money. She’s successful without the show. And Dutchess wasn’t kicked off the show. She left on her own because she was tired of dealing with all that fake drama for a check. Everything you saw was fake sweetie. And how can the show be better without her when the ratings are awful now? They don’t even get a million viewers anymore.

    Leaving Black Ink is one of the best things she could have ever done. It’s gotten even worse since she’s been gone. The storylines are outrageous and these people have to make fools out of themselves for storylines.

      There’s no guarantee the Cease will continue for another season anyway. He’s losing at this point.

      Youโ€™re right she doesnโ€™t need to come back. Sheโ€™s actually doing much better without the show. Itโ€™s a great thing when you realize you donโ€™t have to sell your soul to make money and win at life. Enjoy your trashy and fake reality show though. I mean the few of you that still watch.

    Although I couldn’t stand Duchess on the show, I stopped watching after she left. When I am channel surfing I catch snippets of Sky’s foolishness which is a turn-off.

    Good for her. Black Ink Crew hasn’t been good since she left anyway. She got on my nerves while she was on the show but the drama she kept up made the show good back then. Now it’s boring and too fake to enjoy. Anyway, keep grinding Dutchess. Hopefully, some of the others on the show will get enough dignity to leave too.

    So glad she’s gone. All that corruption and fake tears, I hope to never see her again. She was a liar and a cheater, and caused drama between day 1 friends. She’s right where she needs to be, outta sight outta mind.

      No one is more corrupt than Sky, who y’all have spent years building up while tearing Dutchess down. She lied and said her sons were twins. She did all that fake crying on the show about wanting a relationship with her kids when she ignores them when she’s not filming the show. Sky just told her own son she wishes she would have aborted him or swallowed instead. That’s the person y’all have loved and defended so much, remember? Girl please.

    A lot of Black Ink Crew fans are annoying. Y’all dragged Dutchess for years like she’s some horrible person but loved Sky from day one. H-ll, y’all created a monster with Sky because y’all always excused her behavior. Now that Sky is still on the show telling her own son that she wished she would have aborted him, now y’all want to clutch pearls. Why now? Meanwhile, Dutchess told yall from jump who Sky was. But y’all were too busy hating Dutchess. I’m glad that the ratings are sh-t. It’s what yall deserve. Anyway, keep winning Dutchess. Don’t pay these hypocritical and jealous people any attention.
