Rachel Dolezal, the former head of the Spokane, Washington, NAACP chapter who resigned amid controversy over her racial identity, is allegedly fielding multiple offers to star in a reality show, RadarOnline reported Tuesday. According to the online publication, Dolezal didn’t just fly to New York for an interview on the “Today Show.” RadarOnline said she is also seeking “professional representation.”
According to an unidentified “insider,” Dolezal was “offered two reality shows from different production companies.” The source allegedly said “offers were made last week along with several others that were just outrageous. Rachel recognizes that she is going to need an agent and a publicist, and is going to be hiring a professional team in the next few days.”
“Rachel wants to use all of the publicity to raise awareness about race relations,” the source added. Dolezal’s “phone has been ringing constantly since the scandal broke, and she truly seems to be enjoying all of the attention,” the source added. “Going back to her former life just isn’t an option.”
While appearing on the “Today Show,” Dolezal doubled down on her claim to be black, despite having been born to white parents. She also continued to claim that Albert Wilkerson, a black man, is her father. After that interview, she appeared on “NBC Nightly News” to discuss her identity with Savannah Guthrie and make the additional claim that there’s no proof her birth parents are really her parents.
