Well…the rumors were just rumors, because the original cast of TV Ones’s R&B Divas is back for another season! All five of the ladies will be returning and atleast one of them has a new look! Nicci Gilbert looks beyond fabulous these days. Nicci and her husband have been working out and eating healthy for the past year and our girl has lost a tremendous amount of weight!
When we caught up with her a few months ago, she talked to us about learning to love herself and her curvy body. She also gave us the exclusive info. that there would be a spinoff of R&B Divas in L.A. and possibly New York! Now the announcement is official! (Watch the interview below).
According to Deadline:
*The reality series “R&B Divas,” which followed Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert-Daniels, Monifah Carter, Syleena Johnson and Keke Wyatt working together to produce a compilation album, begins production in Atlanta this month for a second season on TV One, and will be joined on the network by a spinoff series to take place in Los Angeles.
The original “R&B Divas” will return this spring with its original cast in tact for eight-episodes, while “R&B Divas: LA” (working title), which will follow the lives and careers of five yet-to-be-named Los Angeles based R&B performers, is scheduled to premiere in the third quarter of 2013, also with an eight-episode order.
“R&B Divas has definitely struck a positive chord with viewers,” remarked Toni Judkins, executive vice president programming and production for TV One. “Week-after-week, the series continued to build on its audience and we’re thrilled to provide another season and a new franchise of a dynamic program that is clearly resonating with audiences.”
