Meteorologist Rhonda Lee Discusses Being Fired and Regrets. An exclusive interview with Rhonda A. Lee to discuss her natural hair drama and firing from Louisiana-based news station.
Rhonda Lee began our interview by expressing “I transitioned for selfish reasons.” With a birthday approaching in 2000, she was tired of the damage that her hair was experiencing. “My hair just seemed to get shorter and shorter” said Lee as she describes an accidental transition to natural hair by gradually trimming the damaged ends. “It kind of snuck up on me”.
Without hesitation Rhonda continued to explain “I have done so much thinking over the last few days… and I still cannot find a regret for me. I regret obviously losing my job. [But] I think there is a divine reason why this happened.”
In conclusion Lee expressed a desire for others to be more understanding and excepting of her hair. “There is a message of acceptance in understanding the differences in our hair choices without judgement. There should be some type of solidarity. I want people to accept me for the hair choices I make and for me to accept the choices that others make.”
