On the heels of VH1 cancelling Sorority Sisters, another urban reality show may be getting the boot.
After three seasons, you may be saying goodbye to LaTavia, Monifah, Syleena, Kameelah, Angie and Keke.
According to Jawn Murray’s AlwaysAlist, several members of the cast got pink slips that the show was officially cancelled. The report also says that last week, at the Television Critics Association in Los Angeles, TV One’s new President, Brad Siegel, did not present “R&B Divas Atlanta” as one of the returning series for TV One.
TV One has yet to confirm the cancellation. Why the cancellation you ask?
Rumors has it that former executive, and creator of the show Nicci Gilbert has an impending lawsuit against the R&B Divas spin-off show Hollywood Divas.
What makes this all a little messy is Kandi Buruss’ from Real Housewives of Atlanta’s husband Todd Tucker produces Hollywood Divas series. The show was not a problem because initially “Hollywood Divas” was not a spin-off of “R&B Divas.” It all hit the fan once the network released a press announcement calling it a spin-off.
Though TV One is not publicly speaking on the cancellation, a spokesperson did reply with this message via email:
“Both ‘R&B Divas’’ series are important to TV One and at this time, the network has made no definitive decision as to the future of ‘R&B Divas Atlanta.,’”
Will you be sad to say goodbye to the Divas??
