R & B Divas Atlanta Season 2 Episode 1: Monifah, Keke, Nicci now allowed say bitches and hos - LaTocha Scott joins the show and the bickering, quarreling and Diva attitudes continue...

A lot has changed in this show - so much. First I think they decided they needed higher ratings so out goes the postiveness, clean language and respect - in comes the cussing, profanities and bad language (there is is lot of talk about bitches and hoes) - there is also a lot more screaming and shouting than before but then again a lot of bloggers on Youtube are talking about it so it must be the right way forward - less classy more Love and Hip Hip Atlanta style but without the men - well unless you consider Micheal one.

The show starts with Keke Wyatt going to sing the national anthem at Martin Luther King day. Well in typical Diva style Keke starts her drama. They tell her she'll be singing with the band when she thought it would a cappella so the band starts but in a different key so Keke doesn't bother sing complaining that the band is in the wrong key. Now as the band has started playing the national anthem they can't stop so Keke ends up not sing. The pastor is like maybe they should have practiced first - I think so too.

Nicci 'Drama Queen' Glibert

So Nicci is singing in the studio even though she is supposed to have lost all passion and wants to be a fashion designer however we know as she is the executive producer of this show somehow that isn't the truth. Yes both Nicci Gilbert and Faith Evans are the boss chicks on this show.

Anyway continuing from last season she goes on to some chick about trying to find her passion again. Hmmm.... could she have some real issues, please? What I do know was she out sang every else at the Essence Festival last season after pretending to have no passion and she also forgot to introduce Sleeyna.


We get to Syleena who is bitching about having issues with one of her bosses - Nicci Glibert and Syleena is still annoyed about what Nicci did at the Essence Festival. Anyway for some random reason I didn't catch she invites all the women over for dinner at her place. This is the only reality show on TV where the girls actaully eat meals - if notice all the others they might meet in resurtants but they never eat.

Monifah is still hooking up with Trez who is actually a big girl - I mean like big womanly but also sort of manly as well. Strange one. Anyway Monifah complains about Slyeena and Nicci and says 'Hose down those hos". Are Nicci and Slyeena now hos?

Dinner at Slyeena's house: Mushing is new word of the day.

Nothing much about from Nicci arriving and then it all kicks off. Slyeena's sisters says something about them going on tour and somehow Nicci Glibert has a bigger and better idea. Slyeena and Nicci start to argue and bicker over Slyeena mushing and pushing others around.

The biggest issue is like how can they all go on tour together if they can't get along? Simple - most of the bands don't get along - you just have separate dressing rooms and come together on the stage for practice and the show. It's like the office you don't need to love, like or get along with your co-worker to work - just be professional.

Keke kindly explains what mushing is which is when a person put their hand on your head and tips it. She is like no one will ever do that to me. Slyeena denys it but apparently she'd done it to Monifah and a friend of Nicci so maybe Slyeena is really a hoodrat.

Anyway a lot of shouting and screaming and then Syleena throw Nicci out.

Monifah and Nicci Glibert work out

Really? Those two having a jog in the park. Please. Anyway it's really time to bitch about Slyeena time. Monifah peace maker is tells Nicci everyone needs to get along. Nicci is like she doesn't like Slyeena and doesn't want to be her friend either. Maybe it was second boss lady Faith Evans that signed Slyeena for a second season. Or maybe it's just planned drama - who knows?

Nicci thinks Slyeena is a bully because she mushed Monifah - Monifah is like it's her own business and be fair she could alway get Trez to mush Slyeena back. The chick is built like a bouncer bounty hunter. The Monifah starts to act all hood with her hoodie - how old is this chick?

Big Jim rehearsals.

Big Jim who worked with all the big names is leading the women in reshersal for a Chaka Khan tribute at the Trumpet Awards.

Nicci starts to whine about having no passion in music and about how she left it with big Jim however that wasn't true because they resolved their differences later on in the show by having a drink together - check out back review/outlines of my blog.

Anyway they all come in one by one - Big Jim tells them Faith Evans can't make it - so there is a stand in called LaTocha Scott to take Faith's place. You all know that Faith Evans was just executive produsor to lend her name to the project so she doesn't really have a big role as she has many other projects she is handling at the moment.

Anyway Keke starts to practice and mess about with the song then Big Jim indirectly calls her unprofessional - Keke is like she can play if she wants to. Singing is her profession so she knows what she is doing then she walks out. To be fair - Keke has one of the best voices on the show so I couldn't really see where Big Jim was coming from.

Red Carpet at the Chaka Khan Tribute Night and Trumpet Awards.

Keke is late. Well so they all say. Monifah with wife/husband Trez is there as well. I see glimpses of the others then Keke arrives in style, works the red carpet and poses for all the cameras with her handbag hushand Micheal in two.

The performance.

My favourite singer is Keke - only because she sings likes she means it and from the heart. She also has a great tone.

Latocha was second with a great tone and rich voice.

Slyeena was okay but I think her comfort zone is more old soul and jazz numbers. Monifah sounds more early 1990's soul - she is a good vocalist her voice is more like Edina Howard - singing hooks on hip hop beats kinda voice.

As for Nicci I'm not sure what happened on the night. Nicci is a great technical vocalist but her voice came over gravelly and rough.

Till next week....

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker.

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco

Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.
