Last week the rumors that Tracee Ellis Ross would be leaving Reed Between the Lines were confirmed [click here if you missed that] and now Tracee explains why she left...
Tracee tells Essence.com
"It was that BET hadn't decided if they were picking up the show yet or not. During that time when they didn't know, I was offered a really amazing pilot for NBC, and BET graciously allowed me to go and do it."
"Then the timing got complicated and there was a need to move forward. [BET] had to figure out how to deal without me because I wasn't available. But it's not because I wanted to leave."
"I love Reed Between the Lines, I believe in it. There is a chance I'll go back, always. There's nothing weird about it."
