As CNikky reported last month, Angie Stone will be joining the cast of TV One’s R&B Divas. But, Sunshine Anderson will not be joining her! Former member of XScape, LaTocha Scott, will be added to the cast instead. So the new cast will consist of our favorites…Nicci Gilbert, Faith Evans, Monifah, Keke Wyatt, Syleena Johnson and now, Angie Stone and LaTocha Scott.
Filming for Season 2 has already begun with Angie performing at the 2012 Soul Train Awards and LaTocha popping up on the red carpet of the 2013 Trumpet Awards. In Jermaine Dupri’s autobiography he spoke about LaTocha getting into a serious argument with his mother and dis-respecting her. This was one of the things that lead to an un-comfortable business relationship. Maybe her “attitude” had something to do with the demise of the group?
According to TheYBF:
What are we looking forward to? Well, Angie is the mother of singer D’Angelo‘s child. And they had a long term relationship before he blew up in the industry. And since we still harbor our crush on the mysterious sexiness that is D’Angelo…we’re just hoping to get a little tea on that.
As for LaTocha, her baby’s daddy is her manager. That’s drama in itself. And now that she’s working on her own new music, we’re hoping she spills some secrets about former Xscape members Tiny & Kandi Burruss that we don’t already know.
The official announcement about the two new cast members will be made soon. And the premiere of R&B Divas (Atlanta) kicks off in April.
By the way, the L.A. spinoff of “R&B Divas” is indeed happening–eight episodes have already been ordered. But the five cast members for that show have yet to be announced.
