Aw snap, the divas are back! That’s right, R&B Divas Atlanta are gracing our screens yet again with more drama than The Color Purple. I had a chance to catch up with last nights second episode and see some things never change. *sigh* However, the new girls Latavia Roberson and Meelah Williams SEEM to be a breath of fresh air. Yeah, we’ll see.
Let me start with the obvious. KeKe Wyatt is crazy. One would think that after seeing yourself on t.v. acting a plum fool on season one, she would clean up her act. Unfortunately that’s too much like right. Ummm how do you not remember trying to headbutt Monifah at her ENGAGEMENT PARTY? KeKe claimed to have been “joking”, but we all know better. Seriously, after she listed her symptoms to her brother, I came to the conclusion that she needs professional help and counseling. I hope she sees that, because we all see it. Syleena Johnson sees it. Honey, Ray Charles could see it.
Oh Monifah, have you tried diet & exercise?
As Monifah prepares to walk down the aisle, quite naturally she wants to be the best she can be. Trust me, as a bride-to-be, I COMPLETELY understand. However, I don’t know if I agree with Monifah’s inquiry to get liposuction. Monifah isn’t completely in shape, but she’s also not completely out of shape. She’s the average woman. A little bit of exercise and diet would eliminate her muffin top, so why the need for a quick fix? AND, I was waiting for her African American lady doctor to talk her out of it during their consultation. You know, have a heart to heart, real moment with Monifah. I guess at the end of the day she gotta get paid too. Oh well.
“This industry punishes you for being a woman.”
Syleena Johnson’s sister and manager, Syleecia Thompson, spoke those words after delivering a still birth 7 months into her pregnancy. R&B Divas Atlanta gives us a glimpse into the struggle of having a career in the spotlight, while raising a family. I mean, isn’t that why Faith ultimately quit the show? From Meelah sharing her son’s autism, to KeKe’s tribe of children, hopefully this season will bring awareness to the struggle celebrity women have in the singing industry. Beyonce sure does make it look easy.
