We’ll Be Watching! Former Destiny’s Child ‘Latavia’ and 702 Singer ‘Meelah’ Cast for R&B Divas!

We’ll Be Watching! Former Destiny’s Child ‘Latavia’ and 702 Singer ‘Meelah’ Cast for R&B Divas!

TVOne is not playing any games- R&B Divas is here to stay! As much drama that went down during the era when girl groups were still popping, there is just too much 90?s and 2000?s tea to be spilled for not one camera to catch it. As soon as word broke that Nicci Gilbert of the original ‘R&B Divas’ would not be returning for another season, word also hit the web that LaTavia Roberson of the original four Destiny’s Child members and Meelah Williams of  popular girl group “702? would be filling in empty slots. Oh. Yes.

Now if many of you recall, LaTavia and Letoya Luckett were replaced by two other members following their departure- Farrah Abraham and Michelle Williams. Although Farrah left, Michelle stayed, and soon after Destiny’s Child became a tightly knit “triple threat” of three beautiful and talented women. Although we’ve heard from Latoya, who managed to snag a solo career after the dismemberment, little has been heard on Latavia’s end with the exception of her becoming a new mommy. Will she be speaking on her departure (or dismissal) from ‘DC’ or is there a gag order in place? We shall see! As for Meelah Williams, we had not heard much from her or the other members of the “Where My Girls At?” and “Steelo” music group. However, the lovely songstress does share a cute son with Musiq Soulchild and the popular entertainer is expected to make a cameo on the series.

We’re here for it. We mean ALL of it. Will you be?

Solange COVERS Net-A-Porter’s “THE EDIT”, REVEALS How Watching Her Big Sis Molded Her As A Performer

Solange Knowles covers Net-A-Porter’s "The Edit" where she chats about her globe-trotting music career, standing outside of Beyonce’s shadow and how her son is inspired by her work. See the spread inside….

Inside e-shooping site Net-A-Porter.com’s digital magazine, "The Edit", Ms. Knowles posed for The Vacation Issue on the Croatian coast while modeling some of the summer’s hottest beachwear. In the accompanying article, Solange talks about her road to self-discovery and her career-defining performance at Glastonbury.

“After my show I went from stage to stage, and ended up listening to music until 3am. Everyone let me do my thing. They acknowledged me but never interrupted my experience, which I really appreciated.”

The True singer and style goddess also defines her personal style and talks about how her big sister Beyonce helped shape her as a performer.  Here are the highlights:

 

On her career:

“I’m having the time of my life. I have one of the best jobs in the world, and to be able to [perform] for an hour a day and make a career out of it, I’m incredibly humbled by it.”

On defining an identity outside of her sister Beyonce:

“I don’t think any part of myself as an artist has ever had a moment of…intentional execution. It’s all just been an evolution. I’ve been able to watch such an incredible performer as my sister close-up. It’s molded me. And now I’m letting my son watch me.”

On style:

"Style in anything is very important. It’s how we express our individuality, who we are and what we believe in. It’s all a reflection of who I am.”

On her & her entourage’s hot style while performing at muddy Glastonbury

“That’s just because we’re Americans, and we didn’t know the real deal – Glastonbury is not Coachella! [Laughs] We did not know the proper dress code….By the third hour there, I was wanting Wellington boots! It was amazing.  It’s a really unique environment. Everyone was so incredibly spirited and happy to be there. I dropped my phone and someone came and gave it back to me later!”

On whether her brother-in-law Jay-Z or sis Bey (both who have performed at Glastonbury) gave her any pointers before performing

"You know, we actually never even talked about it. But both of them had such incredible, iconic Glastonbury performances – I was really proud of them. And I thought that Jay opening with [Oasis’ song] Wonderwall was pretty kick-ass!”

And for the fashion heads, check out Solange’s photoshoot with all the hot designer info below:

First Lady Michelle On Why America Should TRUST President Obama, Watching HGTV And Her FAB Nails!

 

First Lady Michelle Obama chatted it up recently about why her husband is the right choice for America and the fab nail polish that folks at the DNC couldn’t stop talking about.  Check out Mrs. O reppin’ for her hubby inside…..

As she celebrates her 20th wedding anniversary (they plan to do something special on Saturday), First Lady Michelle Obama chatted it up about why America should re-elect her husband, what she likes to watch on TV and her much desired nail color.  

She was the image of full support at Wednesday night’s debate as she sat pretty in a royal blue jacket & skirt from Preen’s Fall 2011 collection.  And after her husband received plenty of criticsm for his debate performance, Mrs. O spoke to the Las Vegas based Mix 94.1 Mark & Mercedes radio show today to give a different perspective.  Here are the highlights:

On Why America should trust President Obama:

“He spoke directly to the American people,” she said. “He’s proven time and again he’s the person we can trust. He has a clear plan to move this country forward.”

On President Obama reshaping America:

“Throughout his life, he has been that person who can handle multiple tasks. He is able to work at crisis level.”

On why she and the kids love "House Hunters" and HGTV:

“There’s no political advertising on HGTV. Even we get tired of it.”

On the fascination with her "Vogue by Artistic Nail Design of Beverly Hills" nail polish:

“Doing the campaign trail I have people grab my hands and go, ‘It’s the nail polish!’”

KIM KIM: Lil Kim Performs At Fashion Week + Kanye West Says He Sexed Other Chicks While Watching Kim K.’s Sex Tape

Lil Kim isn’t just attending the Fashion Week shows in NYC, but she’s performing as well.  Check the video of her hitting the stage at Opening Ceremony’s 10th Anniversary party, plus Kanye West talks about how HIS Kim helped him sex other chicks…

Over at Webster Hall, Lil Kim took the stage as Opening Ceremony’s clothing company’s surprise guest.  She turned up the audience with "Crush On You."  And in the audience: M.I.A., A$ AP Rocky, Paris Hilton, and Chloë Sevigny.

Check out a snippet of her performance above.

 

And in other "Kim" news, Kanye West (either his camp or Kim’s camp sent TMZ this info we’re sure) told folks he watched now girlfriend Kim K.‘s sex tape while he was sexing other chicks.  Apparently, chick lying in bed like a board turns him on.  But nonetheless, Kanye said he used the Kim K. Superstar tape to get in the mood and to get it in with other chicks.  That explains why he’s been trying to get at her for years now.

So now that he has his own Kimmy K….he no longer needs that tape we guess.  But didn’t Kanye previously say he never saw the tape?  Interesting…

TWEETS IS WATCHING: Memphitz CLAPS BACK Over K. Michelle’s Abuse ALLEGATIONS…Says He GAVE Her All Her Fakes ASSets

Rapper Memphitz recently tweeted a comment that many folks think is a veiled attack at reality star K. Michelle over her abuse allegations.  Find out what he tweeted and get her response inside….

When K. Michelle broke down in tears on "L&HH: Atlanta" about an "unnamed" music producer who crushed her dreams and physically assaulted her, many folks pegged the mystery man to be her former manager Memphitz.  Especially since she’s called him out by name in the past via Twitter.

And although neither have named names this time around, both Memphitz and K. Michelle have posted tweets which appear to be subliminal attacks on one another about the allegations.  See the exchanges here: 

 

Damn!  He had to call out her fake boobs, ass and teeth though?  In addition to his tweet, Memphitz also attached a picture of Pinocchio.  Ouch!

 

This battle will indeed get even more ugly.  We’ll be watching…..
