We’re now in a culture where reality shows are the norm, and with that we expect an all-access pass to see celebrities—and even those who are not superstars—at their most vulnerable. Dice had never been one to hide her personal sexual preferences to women, but it was something she also never felt comfortable openly discussing for the cameras until the Full Court Life producers pulled her to the side while the show’s cast was on a trip to Turks & Caicos. “They said, ‘people love you but they want to be able to relate to you so you have to open up more.”
 
“I remember, it was such a big thing that they were wanting me to open up more about my personal life,” says the reality TV star. “It was me, my cousin, it was Po, and it was Kelly Rowland, and we filmed such a powerful scene of me really coming out and saying ‘this is who I am, but I just don’t want to disappoint my family,’ it was a really emotional moment. We were all crying.”
 
The positive feedback received from that episode was overwhelming and extremely encouraging for Dice because it gave her the confidence and support that she’d truly been hoping. “After that, I was like, it’s really out there now, and I was fine. I was getting a lot of emails and even people on Twitter saying, ‘Dice, I didn’t know how to come out to my family or you’re just an inspiration or I love you so much’ all the positivity was like the monkey off my back. That’s what truly mattered to me.”
