In a bold critique, social media influencer Laura Ikeji has taken aim at the producers of the reality show “Real Housewives of Lagos” (RHOL) for their choice of cast member, Dr. Rommel. Expressing her dissatisfaction with the casting decisions, Ikeji has called for a reconsideration of the inclusion of Dr. Rommel in the popular series.
The outspoken influencer specifically addressed the casting of a gay man, urging the producers to seek someone genuinely outstanding if they choose to include a male figure in the female-led series. Ikeji went on to contact Dr. Rommel, a well-known figure for being gay and transgender, expressing her concerns.
The criticism comes amid allegations of dishonesty against Dr. Rommel on the show, particularly in conflicts with fellow cast member Morey Faith. Viewers have also accused Dr. Rommel of fostering competition among the cast members.
Ikeji voiced her discontent with the casting choice, stating, “Next time you gonna bring a gay man to join a show with ladies, please bring those amazing ones. The LGBTQ community has so many pure souls. Rommel is a waste of screen time and an embarrassment to that community,” in a pointed statement.
The critique from Laura Ikeji sheds light on the controversy surrounding Dr. Rommel’s presence on “Real Housewives of Lagos,” prompting discussions about the responsibility of reality show producers in selecting diverse and impactful cast members.
