Reports of her departure from the show first began to grow back in March when it was revealed that she didn't attend the RHOA reunion show taping on Mar. 27.

McKinney knocked the rumors in a statement in March, saying that she had not left the show and hadn’t been banned from the reunion. “Let me ‘Keep it 100.’ I was not ‘banned’ from the reunion set nor was I fired from the show. I am under contract for this season just like the rest of the cast. Fortunately, because of the platform the show has provided for me, my music career has escalated and that will always come first,” McKinney said.

She continued, “In addition to continuing to support ‘RHOA,’ I am currently busy with my live performances as well as preparing for the upcoming Funkfest Tour that I have been added to with R. Kelly, SWV and Erykah Badu. Thank you to all the ‘RHOA’ fans out there who continue support ‘100’ and my new single ‘Trade It All’ and don’t forget to check out the video with cameos from my girls Claudia and Cynthia.”
