Dutchess’ time on television wasn’t easy.

Black Ink Crew” star Dutchess had a lot of ups and downs during her time on the show. But when her relationship with Ceaser ended, it got even harder to get along with the rest of the cast. In fact, most of the people in the shop sided with Cease. So they began to take shots at Dutchess on and off the show.

Fed up with the drama, Dutchess decided it was time to move on. And she opened up about how toxic it was for her to do the show.

When she appeared on “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” Dutchess revealed that the nasty comments she received on social media did a number on her emotionally. At one point, she was even suicidal.

Dutchess continues to pursue new opportunities.

However, these days, Dutchess is in a much better place. So when a follower told her they wished she would come back to the show, she wasn’t happy.

Dutchess couldn’t understand why anyone would want her to go back to a platform that was toxic for her. Nor could she understand why anyone would want her to deal with Cease ever again after their nasty breakup. She has found peace since walking away from the entire situation.

And she said she’s happier and much more successful leaving reality television behind.

In fact, Dutchess recently revealed another major accomplishment.

    Congratulations to Dutchess! This is the route she should’ve taken instead of possibly coming out of a shell she was in on BIC. I think she was trying to be a city girl and that’s a bit hard for us Southern girls. It also was for tv 📺 too. I do wish her well.

    I’m happy for Dutchess .I felt like she was bullying by those city slickers. She need to know Dutchess up north people . They run game and for some one else on the show to come out North Carolina need to stay loyal to south cause the city slickers run to the country when they get trouble.

    You realize the city slickers move from the south to the north. She was manipulating in her own way. Still proud of her accomplishment.
