Now, years after she’s left the show that put her on the map, she’s addressing why she hasn’t returned.

“I know my worth and I wasn’t treated well or getting what I deserve,” she said on her Instagram Story during a Q & A session. “I don’t agree to be a clown for pennies on a dollar while the network makes millions. Wish other people would do the same and stop this exploitation. But unfortunately for others it’s their only way to make a living.”

Other previous stars commented on an Instagram account which shared a screenshot of the Instagram Story supporting Arkhipchenko.

Paola Mayfield wrote, “She isn’t wrong.”

Deavan Clegg, who recently came out to say most of her storyline was fake, used a clapping emoji and wrote, “yes exactly.”

Erika Owens used the hand clap emoji to express her support.

And Ashley Martson wrote, “She isn’t the only one who didn’t return. She’s right.”

Several fans were not as supportive though.

“Right except she wouldn’t be here without the show,” someone said.

“Maybe the franchise doesn’t pay but the opportunities that come after because of exposure do,” another fan said.

Someone said, “After it has paid for her entire lifestyle….rightttt”

“Anfisa was one of the biggest clowns of all. Screaming, hitting, keying Jorge’s car ect,” someone said.

“I mean who she think she is? Megan Thee Stallion? Sit down be humble comrade anfisa,” a fan wrote.
