All season long, fans of “R&B Divas LA” have been shocked and appalled at Kelly Price’s behavior towards her cast mates on the show as she’s bickered with them over their Diva monologues and even allegedly threatened Chante Moore with Timberlands, Vaseline and a straight edge razor. However, in a new interview with CNikky.com, Price explains that she never threatened Moore with those props nor was there even a straight edge in her bag.
“I saw the trailer and I gagged. Literally, I gagged because the boots and the Vaseline were in a bag full of props that I brought with me for rehearsal. There were pens and pencils; there was a composition notebook and there was another little book… I had a bunch of stuff inside this bag, props, and there was no straight edge,” she clarified.
Price further explains that if fans watch the clip again they may notice that she is never actually heard saying “straight edge” and she claims that producers edited that sound bite, which came from another conversation, into the scene to make it more dramatic.
“You see me pull the Vaseline out. You see me pull the boots out. You don’t even see my face when the word ‘straight edge’ happens. Not only did I not have a straight edge that day, I didn’t say straight edge that day,” said Price. “That was an audio clip that was edited, and I’ve avoided using the word ‘edited’ because everyone goes so ham when they say, ‘You scream editing,’ but that was editing at its finest,”
Price goes on to say Moore didn’t even feel threatened during filming for the scene and that their wasn’t an issue until Moore got a call later that night from an unnamed person claiming that Price was actually threatening her. Price now claims that any producer, networks and cast members, many of whom have spoken out against her, that support the lies being told about her are “irresponsible” and that she’s being unfairly vilified.
“Now, you’re talking about trying to say that I am actually the kind of person that if I decide I don’t like a person…that I could bring myself to a point to slice them… and that is irresponsible to me,” said Price.
“I am still a working woman in this business and I have to be able to work by name and reputation,” she added.
Well, Price’s claims are definitely something to think about, especially since her career is on the line. But it’s also true that editing doesn’t account for her bad behavior towards Divalogues director Fred Thomas, Jr.
