R&B Divas Premieres Online

The first episode of a new TV One reality show has hit the Web. “R&B Divas” chronicling the lives of Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Syleena Johnson, Monifah and Keke Wyatt as they work on separate business endeavors and later a collaborative album.

In the premiere episode viewers will see Faith Evans discussing her famous ex, Biggie Smalls; while singer Syleena Johnson dubs herself “one of the most underrated artists” of her generation.

“I’ve been doing this for 20 years, thought I was gonna be a one-hit wonder? Oh, how sad of you,” she retorts.

Also highlighted is singer Monifah, who details her struggle with drug abuse. “I used cocaine for seven years, it wasn’t until about three years that I decided I wanted to live,” she said.

“R&B Divas” airs Mondays at 10 EST. Check out the premiere episode below. -danielle canada

    Awww, I love Faith! She was always one of the realest chicks in the industry. Glad to see her happy and in her element. Welcome back Fay!
    Nicci, better cut it out! All that beautiful voice and her passion is gone, no way! Get it back girlie, I’m still bumping 5 Miles to Empty and Grapevyne!
    I liked Monifah when she came out. The remix of I Miss You is one of my all-time favs. Its unfortunate that her career was cut short. Good to see her back at it!
    As for Syleena, this lady is a vocal pwerhouse, but like so many “Real Singers”, her talent was under-rated and unappreciated. However, I admire her perserverance. And, it appears that she can still sing the hell out of a song!
    As for Ms. KeKe, she is talented beyond a doubt, but that incident with her ex has sadly left her visibly unstable. I get being hurt and losing trust, but damn! Her behavior is frightening and only a man of God could put up with that. So kudos to her husband. The Reverend doesn’t have many options here. He either has to continue with her as his only friend, Gorilla Glue himself on the path of straight and narrow, sleep with one eye open or leave and join the witness protection program. I hope this show offers her visual perspective of how lucky she is to have a good man and tha because the last one warranted a wounding, doesn’t mean that all men are azzes.
    I am happy to them see them all come together in the spirit of growth and sisterhood! Cheers!
