Fans of TV One’s “R&B Divas” franchise will be excited to know that the series is back with six new singers in the City of Angels. “R&B Divas L.A.” premieres tonight, Wednesday, July 10, and will highlight songstresses working to breathe new life into their careers. With that comes new record deals, new drama and new directions in their personal lives.
Viewers will see one diva try to start a family, while another works to recover from two divorces. And while one diva will try to compete with Beyoncé, another will shakily re-enter the spotlight after years of obscurity and three children.
“R&B Divas” has a tinge of drama as expected but should reignite interest in these talented ladies whose fan base may have been curious about what is going on with their careers and lives.
“R&B Divas L.A.” premieres at 10 p.m. on TV One
Meet the cast:
Kelly Price will be the “head diva in charge” this go-round, (the same role Faith Evans held down in the show’s Atlanta version.) From the looks of it, Price will be putting on her director’s hat on as she tries to orchestrate a musical that will feature the rest of her diva cast-mates.
We haven’t heard much from Lil Mo’ since her “Superwoman” days but if you ask her, that’s all about to change. Gearing up for a comeback, the singer/wife/mother of four uprooted her family and moved them to LA so that she could pick up where she left off in her music career.
Last we heard, Chante Moore
had “a man at home” but these days, she’s single and ready to mingle. On R&B Divas
, we’ll watch along as she steps back onto the dating scene, all while trying to re-launch her singing career and deal with a custody battle against ex-husband and former label mate Kenny Lattimore.
Claudette Ortiz, former lead singer of the group City High has come a long way since her “What Would You Do?” days. Since then, she’s moved to LA where she’s been busy being a full-time mom to her three kids, two of which were fathered by her group mate/ex-husband Ryan Toby. Her story should be interesting.
Talk about a throwback for real! Michel’le, a home grown California girl, made her claim to fame back in the 90s with songs like “Something in My Heart” and “Nicety.” Though the singer may be most remembered for her relationship with rapper/producer Dr.Dre and former marriage to Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight, she is setting out to remind the world the she has talent as she gets back in the studio to record a new album.
Despite the very public breakup of both her groups En Vogue and Lucy Pearl, Dawn Robinson is out to show that it didn’t break her. Now Robinson is focused on her solo career and planning to start a family.
