R&B Divas L.A. Recap
No great reality season ends without a reunion show that attempts to tie all the drama up in a nice little bow, and R&B Divas L.A. is luckily no different. Although the loop on the bow was a little messy, we didn’t mind one bit. That’s just how we like it.
If you missed part one Wednesday night, find out exactly what the ladies dished about. If you didn’t, relive some of the moments all over again, and be sure to check back next week for the highlights from part two.
THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW
Watching the television personality facilitate the conversation between the ladies was just like watching an episode of the talk show host’s own series. The gossiping guru delved smack dab into the drama, looking to locate Dawn Robinson.
The sixth diva was a no show, and Williams was quick to express her disappointment about her absence: “I’m looking at you, Dawn, side ways. I thought Dawn was fierce. She’s not fierce.”
After her tidbit about the missing songstress, Williams dug into rest of the girls’ past partners. From Claudette’s relationships with both of the members of her group City High to Michel’e two hip-hop boyfriends Dr. Dre and Suge Knight, everyone’s story was a hot topic.
THAT’S JUST MY BABY DADDY
Almost all of the women have children with men from previous relationships. None of them pay child support, so the ladies held a quick bashing session about their exes.
“Anybody that would sit there and let their baby mother have to practically live in a car…I don’t want to hear ‘oh, he’s getting himself together.’ No, pay up,” said Lil Mo.
In fact, she’s been back and forth to court with her first husband in an attempt to squeeze money out of his wallet for their two children. Kenny Lattimore hopped on the “no child support” list, too. Chante Moore revealed that since she and Lattimore have such a similar salary, he believes he isn’t indebted to her. On top of that, Michel’e projected her father’s children owe her millions. Whew! They all agreed that’s a topic for another reality show.
50 SHADES OF KELLY
Have you ever wondered why Kelly Price wears her sunglasses even when she steps inside of a building? Williams also speculated about that, and you know she wasn’t afraid to ask. Price’s explanation seemed pretty valid. Apparently, her eyesight is horrible, and every pair of her glasses has a prescription. She didn’t wear contacts often, because they irritated her allergies.
“There were days that I remembered to bring my glasses without the tint and for the days that I didn’t I would have to keep the other glasses on that I drove in,” she explained.
She didn’t wear any sun blockers on the reunion stage, so maybe she put in her non-irritant contacts that day. No shade.
WHO’S IDEA WAS IT ANYWAY?
The biggest dispute of the premiere season was the “Not Your Mama Monologues.” When Price presented “her” idea to the rest of the ladies, they hopped on board, putting in their input and seeking out potential directors quickly.
Ms. Price didn’t like that; she felt “her” project was slipping from her hands. Well Chante and Lil Mo revealed the producers presented the concept to the divas before Price. The monologues was “Kelly’s pet on camera,” said Lil’ Mo.
Price disagreed, saying she met with producers one-on-one months before production even began. We still don’t the answer (throws hands up).
Just when the juiciest part of the show was beginning, of course we were left hanging by a limb. Price gave Fred, the director of the “Not Your Mama Monologues” Moore hired, such a hard time.
She even went as far as to stepping in his face, cutting him off midway into his sentences and shouting at him. As soon as Fred stepped to stage to put in his two cents, we heard the fateful announcement, “next time on the R&B Divas L.A. reunion.” Ugh! Until next week…
Tune in to part two Wednesday, September 11 at 10 p.m. ET on TV One.
