Angel Brinks confirms departure from BBWLA, sets her sights on fashion dominance

A few months ago, Angel Brinks made the unofficial announcement of her departure an unexpected highlight of the Basketball Wives LA Season 5 reunion. Angel’s openness about everything from her checkered past to her ambition (and growing success) as a fashion designer made her a fan favorite for the past three seasons. Plus, the Season 5 reunion already both confirmed the firing of DJ Duffey and hinted at Jackie Christie’s possible departure, so some fans just assumed that Angel was threatening to quit for leverage in contract negotiations.

But when BBWLA Season 6 began filming a few weeks ago, Angel was nowhere to be seen. Naturally, her fans reached out to her on social media to ask if the rumors were true–and what they got back was an unfortunate awakening, one captured by fan site BBWLA News:

The writing was already on the wall for Angel when Evelyn Lozada announced she was coming back to the show for Season 6. And, just a few days before the above response, Angel took to social media for what was widely believed to be another unofficial acknowledgement that she was gone:

So the official news didn’t come as a complete shock. Still, it’s always a shame to see a fan favorite leave the show that helped make her name. But it looks like Angel is completely comfortable leaving the past in her rearview mirror–as we’ve noted before, she has a *lot* of business outside the show, most of it centered on her ever-expanding design empire. A recent picture from her endeavors at a fashion forum in Miami summed it all up: business, family, and pleasure, all in one shot:

          Maybe I’m confusing her with another reality tv celeb. One of them said they like to wear a strap on and have s. Ex with their boyfriend or husband.

    Welp, time for me to move it right along too. I already was turned off when they brought Tami bullying, messy and $#!t starting a$$ back but now they bringing Evelyn bullying and $#!t starting @$$ back too? Just call it BBW Miami why don’t cha? Those two are the reason why I checked out of BBW Miami and now they’re both on the same set again. I can’t do this again, it’s like watching three of Kenya in one and that’s too much. Won’t be watching this season. Knew it was a matter of time before Evelyn came back.
