Divas, anyone? The first part of the “R&B Divas: L.A.” reunion kicks off tonight at 10 p.m. on TV One. Talk show host Wendy Williams, arguably TV’s head diva, is the hostess. After all the drama that took place on the show this year, would weaves and wigs be flying around the set? Maybe, but Williams kept the drama close to her, uh, chest, this morning on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

“Here are a couple of things that I learned. I’ll start with the good,” Williams said. “Chante Moore is such a lovable, nice lady who reminds me of a person I’d be friends with in another life. Because she’s so daggone pretty and she’s been around for so long, and I hate myself for thinking this, but I thought she was going to act light-skinned. I say that in a joking way. I thought she was going to be a mean type of woman.”

Instead, Moore the 40-something singer who just released a new studio album “Moore is More” has gotten a chance to showcase her prodigious vocal talent which has gone underrated for years. “R&B Divas” also showed Moore on good terms with ex-husband Kadeem Hardison, the father of her daughter. Things were not so good with her second ex-husband Kenny Lattimore, who sued her for custody of their son during the show. Wendy says she was just as surprised by the actions of Kelly Price.

“That show exposed Kelly Price, and you’ll see it unfold tonight, exposed Kelly Price for being a mean girl, a bully, a do-it-my-way-or-don’t do it at all kind of girl. You’ll see more of what she says tonight. And Dawn from EnVogue – that whole EnVogue movement was supposed to be about power and strength for women. And I know each of them lent something different to the group. She might not have been a lead singer but to me she was necessary to the group, diva down, tough girl. “R&B Divas” exposed her as being weak as water.”

Williams says that the “R&B Divas: L.A. Reunion” was not as dramatic as some others given that everyone was sober during the taping.

“The girl’s glasses were just props, nobody was drinking much to my dismay. They maintained their composure. But you’ll see how it all unfolds. I was sitting there with a dry glass the whole time waiting for them to drink up so I could go in. All the girls looked lovely and we did get some resolution at the end. It was an interesting time catching up with those girls from a particular era.”

Williams has no idea if the show is coming back to TV One or with who, but when asked who she’d vote off, she says Dawn for sure. As for the reigning diva of daytime? Her eponymous talk show returns on Monday September 16th. How you doin?

5 thoughts on “Diva Drama: Wendy Williams Hosts ‘R&B Divas: L.A. Reunion’

  1. Kelly price is coming across as being pathetic and insecure. She has to be in control and create drama ..she’s hiding behind false confidence.

  2. I really feel Wendy Williams was the wrong person to the reunion. She was messy. Most of her questions had nothing to do with the show. She wanted to know about the ladies personal lives, past information. I enjoy R & B Divas LA just as it was. There was no need for conflict. Contrary to popular belief black women are capable of peacefully co-existing.

  3. Kelly Price is a bully and control freak. I wish she would show Wendy the text she sent to the others when she missed her OWN benefit show. Check the date Wendy. LOL She should have been to the meetings for the divalogs before week 3 since it was her baby. NO ONE AGREES WITH YOU KELLY!!!! So get over it. You are the cause of dumb drama. JUST YOU KELLY!

  4. I think that Kelly price ass is lying and I’m a big fan of hers but I see if she is not in control Of Things On The Show That’s When She Will Drop Out Of Sight But That’s A Real & A Professional Woman Should Be Just Grow Up 40 Something. Com

  5. I like the fact that Wendy is doing this show. SHE will ask the questions and address the issues that people want to know about and what to hear them discuss. I heard her interview this morning. I haven’t watched much of the show this season, but Dawn is “weak as water” WOW!! I was like Wendy thinking ahead of time that Chante was going to be the true Diva (hard to deal with, crazy person), but I’m happy to know she is actually a nice person. I’m kinda curious about tonights show, so I think I’ll check it out. Kelly is REALLY taking a hit for her actions. TV execs like for these shows to have drama, so they will probably ask her to come back if there is a 2nd season. Will Kelly CHOOSE to come back is another question.
