So I had already told you guys some time ago that Angie Stone was being added to the cast of R&B Divas. Well, I wasn’t expecting this one, but Latocha Scott from the girl group Xscape has OFFICIALLY been added to the cast as well. I spoke to some people from her camp and an official press release will be issued later today. This adds a really interesting dynamic to the show and here is why. Catch these T’s.
It was rumored that Latocha had a reality television show in the making with VH1. The show was supposed to be about her re-entry into the music business and life as a mother and a wife. I’m sure her and those around her figured out that an ensemble cast would probably work better for her because independently her story isn’t grand enough to carry an entire show. The Gag is, Latocha’s true story line is the Xscape breakup and all the rumors surrounding what really happened. This news comes at no better time considering that SoSo Def is getting ready to do their 20 year tribute concert where there WILL NOT be this big Xscape reunion that we all hoped for.
I’ve got a feeling that the addition of Latocha Scott to R&B Divas is going to open up a huge can of worms surrounding Xscape. I’m sure we can expect to see Tameka who is Latocha’s sister and 1/4 of Xscape on the show as well. That being said, now all 4 members will have a platform to tell their sides of the story. All this time I thought we where going to have to wait to Unsung moved up to the 90′s to get the T.
I can’t really complain about Latocha being added. Undeniably she can sing. Honestly, I do miss hearing her voice on the radio. I hope that her and Nicci Gilbert mesh well and we get to her some of their trials and tribulations of being in girl groups. We already know that Angie Stone is going to bring the pain so I am not going to even waste any time writing about that. I’ll save my Angie Stone opinions for when I have some real T to spill.
