Ivy Couch of The Sisterhood in girl group Xscape? What? When? Here’s the Tea

Posted on Jan 1 2013 - 9:48pm by Funky Dineva

Now I pride myself on being very knowledgable when it comes to 90’s R&B. While watching the premiere episode of the new TLC show The Sisterhood when Ivy Couch said she was in the girl group Xscape, I damn near fell out of my bed. I’ve NEVER know Xscape to have any other members other than Latocha, Kandi, Tiny and Tameka. So who is this chick??? Well, come to find out, she was a replacement after the group disbanded. I’m sure you can guess who’s replacement she was. Catch these T’s

So just when was Ivy Couch in Xscape? The answer is “at a point in which it didn’t matter because no one remembers her a**. Who’s replacement was she? The answer is Kandi Burruss.


Loosely paraphrased, the story goes:

After Xscape ended, there was several attempts at a reunion/reconciliation. The powers at be wanted to milk all they could out of the successful brand. Especially considering that the group broke up while they were on top and still hot. Kandi was asked to participate in this reunion effort. After declining to do so, Kandi was asked to sign over her rights to the group. Needless to say, she signed them over. After relinquishing her rights to the group, Ivy Couch was the second of three replacements. Those in charge even went as far as cutting and dying Ivy’s hair to give her a Kandiesq image. Ivy’s tenure with the group was extremely short lived. Word is she only performed publically with them once or twice. Rumor has it that she had issues with the sisters Latocha & Tameka.

You know The Doll scurried to try to find  videos and pictures of Ivy while in Xscape. Needless to say, there aren’t any. The rise and fall of Xscape is starting to sound more and more like Dream Girls. TVone, I think it is time we fast forward Unsung to the 90’s and get the real T’s on what really happened

    First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out
    there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Thank you!

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    several weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you have
    any solutions to protect against hackers?

    When someone writes an article he/she keeps the image of a user in his/her
    mind that how a user can be aware of it. Thus that’s why
    this piece of writing iis amazing. Thanks!

    There was an actual fifth member before all these replacements, and before the record deal I always wondered what happened to that young lady once the group finally got on. Teen summit days.

    Can I POUR this tea…Miss Tiny WAS NOT an original member. I happen to know her, and she was dismissed AFTER becoming pregnant. Tiny was a replacement as well.

    • MsKee January 3, 2013 at 7:45 pm - Reply

      WRONG! Tiny WAS an original member, and was NOT fired when she got pregnant. Do your research before you start pouring tea, cuz your tea is weak!!!

      • chrissy January 4, 2013 at 6:06 am - Reply

        She didnt say Tiny was fired. She said the original member was let go because of pregnancy but of course all this took place prior to them becoming mega stars. Which means Tiny is considered a original lol

    I know she’s your boss Dineva… But Exscape ended when Kandi sexed JD…lol and then his daddy. I wonder if Tamar and Kandi get along considering they both sexed JD daddy. Well Tiny and Kandi still get along after Tiny had Kandi ex fiancé AJ(rip). I can’t keep up with these chickens…
