‘Black Ink Crew’ Star Dutchess Has a New Show on the Way

Dutchess has been busy since leaving “Black Ink Crew.”

Black Ink Crew” star Dutchess had a dramatic departure from the show. It all began to go downhill for her after her messy breakup with Ceaser. Eventually, the rest of the crew sided with her ex. So they began to come for Dutchess out of loyalty. Plus, some had their own issues with Dutchess including Sky and Miss Kitty. With tension following everywhere she went and every interaction with the crew, Dutchess decided it was time for her to walk away from the reality show. However, leaving the show didn’t stop her from being discussed. In fact, Dutchess was brought up a lot since walking away. But the constant insults didn’t keep Dutchess from moving forward.

She’s been vocal about her issues with the production side of “Black Ink Crew.” In her opinion, the team of producers was never diverse enough. So black people weren’t portrayed with enough sensitivity and care on the show while they dealt with serious issues like drug addiction.

Her past experiences on the reality show drove her to start her own production company and pursue a career in radio. But she may be making her return to television soon. She addressed this during a recent interview.

    I’ve always liked Dutchess and respected her ambition. Good luck to her and I hope she never returns to toxic reality television.

    Love to see her winning without the show. That has to be the ultimate goal when you’re on that platform.

      Yep. If not, time is being wasted.

    I still don’t like her. Her superiority complex is gross. Alwayz want to tell people how he is better than them. When ever she got mad at Donna and called her boyfriend(at the time) and told him about her past relationships I was done with her. That was uncalled for, petty and mean. And she is alwayz giving some ole bs reason why her narcissistic behavior should be tolerated.

      She doesn’t need you to like her. There is nothing wrong with a black woman realizing her worth and superiority. She was absolutely right about her superiority which is why she’s more successful now then she was then. Ceaser wouldn’t even be where he is now if it wasn’t for Dutchess. Black women don’t have to be meek and humble to make people comfortable and to be liked by internet strangers. Validation from strangers means nothing.

        Well said. Dutchess really started to thrive when she realized she didn’t need the Black Ink fans to like her. They don’t make or break anyone and never will. 🤷🏾‍♀️

        “She doesn’t need you to like her.” So true. But this applies to all of us. Way too often people are so focused on being liked and popular that they make bad decisions and stay in bad situations trying to please the wrong people. You live your best life when you don’t give a f-ck who likes you. Congrats to Dutchess. Everything she said about the show and the people on it/producers has been proven true the last couple of years.

      Considering what we all know now about the NY cast, Dutchess was and still is superior. That’s just self awareness. 🤷🏾‍♀️

    I’m proud of Dutchess and every black woman who left this problematic platform and has been winning since.

    Never understood the Dutchess hate because the fan favorites have done much worse. She’s always been a boss though so I know she’ll keep grinding. Truth be told, enough people don’t understand these shows should be a temporary platform to better opportunities. Making a career out of it is a mistake and not very ambitious.

      People hate Dutchess because she’s a confident woman. But the women of this franchise receive the most criticism. They are always made out to be the main villains by producers.

    I hope Dutchess stays focused and keeps doing big things. I completely respect her now.
