Tanya first appeared on the show as a "guest" in 2016, and for a while, her departure remained a mystery. A few years later, the reality TV star opened up about why she decided to leave. Tanya implied that she wasn't fired from the show.

So, why did Tanya Tehanna leave Little Women: Atlanta, and what has she been up to since her exit from the show? Here's a 2024 update on the mom of three.

What happened to Tanya Tehanna on 'Little Women: Atlanta'?

Prior to leaving Little Women: Atlanta, Tanya captioned a now-deleted photo on Instagram, "When you’re waiting patiently for all the good coming your way. KNOW that you are worthy and attract what you desire. Gratitude is medicine. Gratitude is the key to slay. And I’m grateful as fudddgeeeeee y’all!"

While some assumed that the post was a hint from Tanya that she might be leaving the show, she later informed fans via Instagram in a now-deleted post that there wouldn't be a Little Women reunion following Season 4. "I do NOT know why," she wrote on Instagram. "It would have been LIT! But that's out of my hands, I do not make these choices. If you have any concerns please reach out to @lifetimetv because I will not be responding anymore to this question being asked."

Then, in a post from May 2019, the former exotic dancer told followers she’s "more than the personality that you’ve met on your screen!"

"I love gardening, cooking, everything that has to do with hot weather, dancing, singing, writing music, yoga, mental health, FOOD and I’m plant based and choose not to categorize myself, I do what works for me," she expressed.

"I love thrift stores, and wicker anything! I’m a fairy, I intuitively create healing plans and products with all of mother nature’s plants and herbs and I have a passion for healing!"

Initially, there was some speculation that Tanya quit the series to focus on her business, though she hopped back into the reality TV game. The entrepreneur appeared on the Zeus original series, You’re My Boooyfriend, which looked like some sort of dating show, though the description is confusing AF.

"After seven years of searching, social media star B Simone is still looking for a boyfriend, bringing an eclectic cast of dating competition hopefuls to her hot Atlanta mansion," the synopsis reads. "Witness as nearly a dozen wannabes attempt courtship against zany trials and tense eliminations, all in the hopes of joining B at her side. Can B Simone finally find her boooyfriend?"

Tonya Scott says she left 'Little Women: Atlanta' because her personality wasn't accurately portrayed.

Although fans were left in the dark for a while regarding Tanya's exit from Little Women: Atlanta, the truth about her departure finally came out. During a 2022 interview with The Progress Report, Tanya revealed that she had left the show because it portrayed her as this “quiet, I want everyone to get along type person."

Instead, Tanya would have preferred that the producers aired more of the deleted scenes which would have provided viewers with a clearer picture of who she is.

She also didn't like the fact that the show focused so much on her baby daddy, a topic she believes has been exhausted.

What is Tanya Scott from ‘Little Women: Atlanta’ doing now?

Today, Tanya serves as the CEO of her business, Life Body Naturals.

Some of the products she sells cater to skin care, reproductive health, and more.

The businesswoman and mom of three is also focused on her musical career. On Jan. 11, 2024, Tanya dropped her single "Care Free." Although Tanya's reality TV career didn't last long, the exposure has helped her grow her business, and her followers on social media.
