R&B Divas L.A. Production Not going Well. Kelly Price Is To Blame. Production Won’t Work With Her

Posted on May 6 2013 - 12:05pm by Funky Dineva


Last week I had the pleasure of attending one of two R&B Divas premiere parties that was thrown here in Atlanta. Expecting to pick up tid bits of information on the Atlanta girls, I was shocked when all the major tea spilled pertained to the L.A. cast. Well quiet as its kept, they say Kelly Price and her diva to the tenth power attitude has made it nearly impossible to work with her. Some of her alleged antics that were reported to me will shock you. Kelly’s name wasn’t the only one thrown in the pot. The other difficult diva I was not surprised about and you probably wont be either. Catch these T’s


We all know Kelly Price can probably sing your best backwoods baptist church singer under the table. However, I was not aware that she had reached Dianna Ross’s level or Aretha Franklin’s either. At the party I was told that Kelly price is pulling all sorts of mean diva like stunts & shows. The most consistent story was Kelly pulling down her sunglasses when people would speak to her and look the other when being spoken to. Other reports included Kelly looking straight through people while they are talking, and acting as if they are not even standing there. How rude?

I’m hesitant to say this, but I was told hands down that she is not welcomed back for season 2. Granted I know I said the same thing about Nicci Gilbert and she returned. In all actuality, I was right about Nicci. She fired her old management, she and her new management flew up to TV One and begged for her job back. Needless to say TV One gave in.

dawn-robinsonKelly Price is not the only name that was damned at the premiere party. Former EnVogue member Dawn Robinson ran a close 2nd with Kelly in the race of negative reviews. The most consistent statement was “Dawn is crazy”. Everyone made it a point to clarify that in calling her crazy, they were not making a cliche’ blanketed statement, but that she is actually certifiably crazy. Rumors of being difficult and having a few screws loose have plagued Dawn since her very first departure from EnVogue. Let’s not turn a blind eye to the fact that Cindy, Maxine, and Terry seemed to be able to get along just fine. Nor let us forget that Dawn was cited as the reason Lucy Pearl broke up as well.

No tea no shade, but what gets me about some of these women on R&B divas is how ungrateful and delusional many of them are. Let’s not pretend like the criteria to become and R&B Diva is not the same criteria to become an entire episode of UNSUNG. Right! I’m not trying to be funny, but many of the woman from both casts need not act like their season hasn’t passed. The 90’s was how long ago? Without this R&B Divas platform some of them are so forgotten or irrelevant that they couldn’t sell out a high school gymnasium. That being said, why not use this opportunity to right a few wrongs and revive your dead career. Some of y’all may disagree with me calling their careers lifeless, but if their careers were on and popping, they wouldn’t be on this show. Everyone on this show NEEDS it, Kelly Price included. The one person who needed it least is the one person we see least, Faith Evans. Even with that, she’s pushing it. Her absenteeism is starting to make me look at her sideways.

I will say this, across both casts of R&B Divas is more talent than the entire music industry combined. That goes to show you that its about more than talent hunty. Life throws us all a curve ball every now and again, but others of us tend to get in our own way. I hope some of these ladies will stop getting in their own way. Before you know it, Joseline Hernandez is going to be selling out shows and making all the money. Yes that was a read! 🙂

    Can they kick Kelly and Dawn off the show. I dont even watch no more because of their foolishness. Kelly just is nasty and probably was a fake friend to Whitney Houston (RIP). No wonder Dawn cant keep a damn man, she is straight cray cray. I heart Chante Moore, Lil Moe, Michelle and Claudia. The other 2 bizzes can kick rocks with their face.

    I think Kelly Price has some deep issues. It’s probably the fact that she is overweight. We all know that in the entertainment industry being overweight is not good. We know she doesn’t want to be overweight cause she had surgery. Problem is she is still overweight. The other ladies are all healthy looking and sexy. She probably feels like she deserves to be a bigger star because of her talent but because of her weight she is not. So she acts like a star or diva in her own head. So sad. She needs to get professional help.

    I thought Kelly had more class then that, I have seen now that her damn head, is a thousand times the size of her body. That’s a shame that a talent like her goes to waste. Are u really goin to let being a diva take everything away from u , then i guess u’ll go back to church then sang gossip music.

    Kelly Price need to stop acting like she all that and that she got so much going on, I sure haven’t seen anything from her until now! Her attitude is ugly and she needs to stop acting like she is the one and only, because she is not! I was a fan, but that has totally changed!!!!

    Kelly Price is such a bitch. She totally disrespected the man who was the director. I would have smacked her if she had gotten in my face like she did his.

    No tea, no shade, but Kelly Price did not win a Grammy. She wrote on Bonnie Raitt’ s album and Bonnie was the one who won. And Dawn is just as shady as can be.

    All I have to say is Lawd Help, when Kelly watches the show, she will be so ashamed at her behavior. Fall back ma ma and take a breather. We love your big talent but that big attitude has to go. I’m like Tamar Braxton on this one “Girl Get Yo Life” cause they way your are acting is a disgrace!!!!

    Watching this show Kelly Price needs to get a grip. I have lost ALL respect for her and her talent because she is so unprofessional. There is a lot of people born with a natural gift and talent but when no one can professionally work with you, you have nothing you fall OFF. Ever heard of “has-Ben” Price because you are slowly turning yourself in to one. You are a artist and image is everything and I’m sorry ma’am but seeing the “reality” you was a no sale for me. Will never purchase her art again…. That one needs prayer and a damn reality check!

    Well yes Dineva you said it! Mrs. Kelly was certanly pulling all sort of divas stunts in last weeks episodes. Dawn unfourtunately is seeming to take sides with her against the other girls and it’s not looking to good for her because of that reason. The rest of the girls seem very appreciative and Ms. Chante is doing her best to help but it doesn’t seem as if Ms. Kelly and her backup singer are taking to kindly to it! I had high hopes for this cast because no tea no shade these voices make you look sideways R&B Divas atlanta Who???? They Sanging in LA and all the women are divas in their own right but in the words of Nene Leakes Ms. Dawn on the wrong team Boo! Following behind Kelly with her attitude is going to lead her straight back into hiding. I will not make fun of her sanity because I don’t know her story. I’m praying for her. Honestly I am not even a Faith fan. So not seeing her on the show really didn’t mean much! I want Kelly to get it together though Grammy or not no ma’am you don’t not have to be nasty. I wanted Lil Mo to check her but in her words it was not her battle it was the Lords. LOL till next time Ciao Dineva Darling!

    It’s funny how people are sooo quick to believe everything they hear. Then when it turns out to be FALSE like Nicci being fired they try to make an excuse it for it. This is Nicci and Faith’s show so I guess she fired herself? Ohhhh okay!

    Anywho the talent in these R&B Divas shows is AMAZING I STILL listen to Michel’le first CD from back in the day.

    Simple minds see this as a rescue of a failed career. Thinkers realize the strategy of events. Each personality serves a purpose. Undeniably talented and gifted…and the last time I checked…the bible is right…your gift will make room for you…TRUST there’s a method to this madness…even if you can’t see it.

    While some of your comments were funny, I can’t help but think they were spiced up to revive your own career. selah

      I agree with the point I think you’re making of how a lot of what we see in these reality shows is just “good television” and not so real. In the first episodes of the show it is pretty obvious that these women were thrown together and were not friends prior to the show

Or that Nikki and Faith weren’t coming back for season 2? I sip a little of the tea but I don’t drink it all because this and all other blogger sites are gossip and hearsay.

      For someone who doesn’t have any fucks to give, you sure are giving me a lot of attention. Talk about a loose screw…

    It is truly sad that these women, who you are right can sing circles around most of the singers today for the most part are their own worst enemies. Not all of them, but there is a reason why their careers are where they are like Big Jim said about Nicci in one episode. Look, at this point and time if you get into the music business and don’t know how smarmy it is then shame on you. Look at the tragic events across the musical spectrum like Sam Cook, Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix, and so on. We just lost Chris Kelly.

    These reality shows be exposing these chicks for the worst. It’s entertaining, don’t get me wrong, but the personalities on these women are terrible. The kicker is that if they didn’t act nasty to everyone they come across, they would not be getting any shine! Live and let live I guess…

    Side Note: It seems as if people with TRUE SUCCESS are down to earth and super nice (ie. Beyonce. Toni Braxton, Faith Evans, Tiny, etc. The chicks who feel ENTITLED to success, or more success than they’ve accumulated are normally the hateful, negative ones (ie, Kelly Price, Tamar Braxton, Dawn Robinson, etc

    Just my opinion
