Reality Star And Actor In The Dog House For Cheating On Wife Sierra On The Show
His messy love triangle on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” stunned the nation.
But newly-minted reality star Rod “Shooter” Gates said he deeply regrets his affair with his wife, Sierra’s assistant, Moriah. He said he and Sierra are now trying to work things out and save their eight-year relationship.
“I’m trying to fix it, but it’s been hard,” Shooter exclusively told BOSSIP. “I’m doing everything I can to make it work. I f***ed up, so I’m trying to fix it.”
Shooter – who earned his nickname from playing dice – said although he and Sierra have been having a lot of arguments lately, he still is trying to work things out, and the pair have started going to church and together and pray for their marriage.
“We’re putting God first to fix this, but it’s not easy,” Shooter admitted.
He insisted that his affair with Moriah was a “spur of the moment thing,” that wouldn’t have gone past the first night they slept together if Moriah didn’t start blackmailing him.
“I would have never wanted that to get where it went,” Shooter said, adding that he’s had no contact with her since the affair came out.
In the meantime, Shooter – who has worked with Atlanta artists like 21 Savage, DJ Drama and Rocko – said he’s flexing his acting chops in the upcoming Tupac biopic “All Eyez On Me,” and is shooting webisodes of the show “The Pressure,” where he plays a drug boss that goes to war with a rival crew.
He said he wants viewers to know that although he made a bad choice, he’s not a bad person.
“Basically, I’m being called the bad guy, but I’m the bad guy with good intentions,” Shooter explained. “Sometimes you have to be bad to find your good…I made a mistake, and my life is not perfect, but I’m trying to fix it.”
