Imagine that! A reality show titled with the word “divas” has drama!
TV One debuted “R&B Divas” nearly two weeks ago as their most watched original premiere in the network’s history with 900,000 viewers. Originally touted as a show with the goal to positively portray African American women coming together, there’s a different story being told of the antics happening behind the scenes regarding one member in particular.
A source close to the show tells RadarOnline.com that the production (which follows the lives of R&B singers Nicci Gilbert-Daniels, Faith Evans, Monifah Carter, Syleena Johnson, and Keke Wyatt as they come together to record a collaboration album), is already thinking about giving Nicci the axe before filming begins for the second season this fall.
“Despite doing interviews with her whole message of positivity, Nicci was a terror to work with on the show,” the source says. “Publicly, she says she wanted this show to be the anti- Housewives, but privately her actions made her a fit for Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club,” they continued.
Producers have allegedly been meeting with powerhouse Kelly Price to take Gilbert’s spot, reports RadarOnline.com.
Gilbert is the show’s co-executive producer, so giving her the boot doesn’t totally alienate her from the show…she’s one of the shot callers! The network would “just pay her a producer credit and cancel her talent contract,” says the source.

Background Of The Show
R&B Divas is an American reality television series that aired on TV One. The show focused on the lives of five female singers in Atlanta, Georgia who were all members of popular R&B groups or solo acts. It was created by Mona Scott-Young and produced by her company Monami Entertainment. The first season premiered on August 20, 2012 with a total of eight episodes.
The cast included Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert-Daniels, Syleena Johnson, Keke Wyatt and LaTavia Roberson. Each woman had their own personal struggles to overcome while trying to balance music careers and motherhood. Throughout the show, viewers got a glimpse into their relationships and how they each dealt with different situations as well as the occasional drama between them caused by gossiping or comparisons made amongst themselves and other women in the industry.
With its success and high ratings, it came as no surprise when TVOne decided to renew the show for a second season; however this time around one member would not be returning – LaTavia Roberson. While fans were disappointed at her departure from the show, she cited “personal reasons” for leaving but promised not to leave without giving her side of the story regarding any issues that may have come up during filming prior to her departure.
Recent Rumors And Speculation
Since the new season of R&B Divas has started airing, rumors and speculation have been swirling about LaTavia Roberson’s departure from the show. While fans were initially disappointed to hear that she was leaving, many began speculating as to why this happened so suddenly. Some sources have claimed that there may have been a disagreement between herself and other members of the cast which led to her decision to not return for another season. Others argue that it could simply be personal reasons as she had stated before departing from the show.
At first, all these stories seemed like just gossip until an interview with Faith Evans appeared in which she admitted that there had indeed been issues on set before LaTavia left and those issues had caused tension amongst them all. She went on to explain how they are still trying to work together despite their differences and wished LaTavia well in whatever venture she decided next.
The drama behind the scenes is something viewers will never know but it’s clear that while no one wanted LaTavia gone, her exit did bring some much-needed closure to any lingering tensions or disagreements among the remaining cast members. Despite this, they’ve managed to remain focused on creating great music and giving us entertaining moments through their interactions with each other – reminding us why we love watching R&B Divas in the first place!
The drama behind the scenes of R&B Divas has been an ongoing topic of speculation. Recently, rumors have been circulating that a cast member is being replaced. Although nothing has been confirmed yet, it’s clear that something is going on with the show and its cast members.
