"R&B Divas LA" is reportedly taking a toll on Kelly Price, who is said to be heartbroken over her portrayal on the show.
According to co-star Dawn Robinson, Kelly has been treated unfairly, despite what viewers have seen on the last two episodes of the series.
"Kelly is a wonderful person, and the way they treated her…I’ve just been praying with Kelly because her heart is broken over what she’s sees of herself [on the show]. You build up a career to a certain point, you fought and battled through that career to be heard and seen. People talked about her weight and all the different things, and now to have a reality show tear you down? Uh uh, no, uh uh, no way! I’ll be damned," Robinson shared in an interview over the weekend.
As seen on "R&B Divas LA" last week, Kelly Price showed up and showed out over the "Not Your Mama's Monologues" project, acting so foul that many a fan, viewer and co-star wrote her off, blasting her on social media, YouTube and other platforms.
According to Dawn Robinson, Kelly was warned not to go there, but she did anyway.
"When you show a bunch a stuff, and you have all this footage, and then they just break it down to certain parts of it, and then they omit certain things that you did say, but they don’t put that part in there because they want you to look a certain way. So this is why I was telling her, ‘Kelly, whatever we do, don’t react to people in an angry way, because they’re going to film that, and that’s what they’re gong to show. They want to show us fighting against each other, they want to show anger, the angry Black woman, and you’re so much better than that," Dawn says she told Kelly. "Please hold your peace as much as you can, and don’t let these people take you off your greatness. You are a queen – we don’t go there, don’t do it.’"
Even with that said, Dawn feels bad for Kelly and continues to pray with and for her.
"This is her baby, and it’s like you come to everybody with an idea of your own, and then they just kick you out of the car and put someone else in place of who you have in mind. I think you’d be pretty pissed at that as well," Dawn shared.
