No tea no shade, but I am really beginning to feel like R&B Divas Atlanta got the short end of the stick. Look at how nice the set of the R&B Divas LA reunion looks in comparison to that dusty ass set the ATL Divas had. Let us not fail to recognize how the LA Divas where blessed with the opportunity to have a real real host (Wendy Williams) that is entertaining and knows how to pull out the T versus lame a$$ wack a$$ Joe Clair. I’m still mad about that Joe Clair foolishness. Who the hell thought that was a good idea? Whoever the hell it was should be fired and ran out of town.
Bits and pieces from the reunion are starting make their way around the net as promotion for the reunion begins. Check out Michel’le explain her fake marriage, Claudette Ortiz being homeless, and Chante Moore giving Jelly Rice the business. Continue reading
Chile ain’t this about a bish! Of all people to comment on the harsh criticism that Kelly Price is receiving, I would have thought that Nicci Gilbert would have been the last one to open her big mouth. No tea no shade, but if I was Nicci Gilbert, I would have been glad that someone else was in the hot seat. Following Nicci’s lead, Kelly Price and company are running with the whole “biased editing” excuse as to why Kelly is looking like such a b!tch on R&B Divas LA. I’m here to tell you, that excuse didn’t work for Nicci, and it damn sure ain’t working for Kelly. Much to Nicci & Kelly’s dismay, their respective cast-mastes have co-signed the fact that these women have exemplified poor character and bad attitudes, not to mention the viewers at home can discern the truth.
Having no allies, I guess Nicci Gilbert felt it prudent to align with Kelly Price. Now that I think about it, I guess Nicci is qualified to speak on the matter seeing as though she has suffered a similar blow to her reputation as a result of reality tv. Check out what all Nicci had to say. Continue reading
So I’ve just got through watching episode 6 of R&B Divas LA, and I am really feeling some kind of way about Dawn Robinson. I can’t really pinpoint what I’m feeling right now. Up until episode 6, I was really rocking with Dawn, but after watching how she abruptly quit the monologue show following behind Kelly, my feelings have changed. For those who may be in the dark, during episode 6, Kelly Price meets with Chante Moore and Lil Mo and announces that she is quitting the monologue show. She cites that she is extremely busy, booked, and spread too thin (pun intended).
Personally, I think it was an arrogant power play on Kelly’s behalf because she could not get her way and her ego was bruised. I feel Kelly’s quitting the monologue show was a spiteful effort to sabotage the overall project. I really think that In Kelly’s mind she thought she was the main attraction and that if she were not apart of the show, no one would really buy tickets. It’s unfortunate that In Kelly’s bag of props alongside her timberlands, Vaseline, and straight edge that she didn’t have a crystal ball to see that once R&B Divas LA aired, she would lose droves of fans and moreover the respect of the masses. All in all, right, wrong, or indifferent I can understand why Kelly quit. I may not agree, but can certainly understand. That leaves the question why did Dawn Robinson quit? Continue reading
See, this is the type of Sh!t right here that I’m talking about. I firmly believe Kelly Price has recently completed medical school and is about to start a career as a cardio vascular surgeon. Every step Kelly Price has been making lately looks like career suicide. I’m totally convinced that she is through with music and show business and is prepared to lay her career to rest.
Kelly Price, via editing (if you believe that), has displayed nothing less than a nasty spirit since R&B Divas LA premiered. Quiet as it’s kept, The Doll had told y’all months ago that production was having major issues with Kelly and her attitude. [R&B Divas L.A. Production Not going Well. Kelly Price Is To Blame. Production Won’t Work With Her ]. I expected things to be bad, but not this damn bad. I can truly say, unless Kelly Price finds a way to cure world hunger, she will never get another red cent of my got damn money EVER! No tea no shade, but judging by how much she CLEARLY likes to eat, I doubt she’ll be curing world hunger anytime soon. Sometimes less is more. In this instance, the less we would have known about Kelly, the more we would have liked her. Kelly’s image is in such disrepair right now, that I don’t think any amount of singing can get her out of ‘the hole she’s dug. To top things off, the whole premise of R&B Divas LA was for the ladies to put on this big ole monologue show. And Kelly Price’s finished version is worse than one of those church skits that sister Debrah would make the children’s choir do at Easter! Catch these T’s:
Chile Syleena Johnson better go on ahead and milk this new life that R&B Divas has given her. I ain’t mad with you sister! Get it girl, and when its got, get some more. The real gag is, the wrong R&B diva is getting her life fixed. Syleena Johnson just needs a lil brown liquor and a nasty slow jam so she can get her life! It is Nicci GilBIRD’S a$$ that need to fix her life. I’m not even going to start on her. Check out the promo video for this next go around of Fix My Life. Continue reading

The mother-child relationship has the potential to be one the most special relationships in the world. Nature and society combine to render motherhood one of the most exalted roles that a woman can ever undertake in her life. Because the mother-child relationship is often filled with beauty, it is easy to forget that there can also be an ugly side to the mother-child relationship. Many things have the potential to undermine the mother-child relationship, but homophobia, in particular, taints the mother-child relationship in a uniquely insidious way.
Prior to watching R&B Divas Atlanta, I had little knowledge of the singer Monifah. What I did recall of her, I learned from the movie BAPS. In the movie, one of the characters runs up to Heavy D, in excitement, yelling, “I’m the next Monifah!” It was clear to me, even then, that Monifah was a great singer, but I had paid little attention to her throughout the years. When it was announced that Monifah would be part of the R&B Divas Atlanta cast, blogs and other media outlets began to report that Monifah was a lesbian woman. As a Black gay man, I was excited to by the news that Monifah was a member of the LGBT community, and that she would be sharing her life on television. When I began watching R&B Divas Atlanta, I soon came to realize that Monifah, aside from being a great singer, was also a woman with a beautiful personality and spirit. In each of her scenes, she could be counted on to emanate truth, light, love, and a positive attitude. I suppose, it was this warmth and kindness that made me assume that Monifah was loved, as the whole person she is, by everyone in her life. I was wrong. Continue reading
