MUSIC NEWS: ‘R&B Divas Atlanta’ Cancelled by TV One

*Well, it’s a wrap for “R&B Divas Atlanta.”

At least that’s what Jawn Murray’s AlwaysAlist is reporting. Murray says that on Tuesday afternoon (01-13-15), several members of the cast were notified that the show was officially cancelled. The story also noted 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.

The situation is also kinda messy because of litigation surrounding the “R&B Divas” franchise. Nicci Gilbert, former executive and creator of the show filed a lawsuit about the spin-off “Hollywood Divas.” We’ve also learned that there could also be additional litigation from the existing executive producers, who were initially told that “Hollywood Divas” was not a spin-off of “R&B Divas,” but then the network released a press announcement calling it a spin-off.

“R&B Divas Atlanta” came to be in 2012. The original cast members were Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Syleena Johnson, Keke Wyatt and Monifah Carter. Angie Stone joined the cast in season two and appeared for two seasons. Additionally, Xscape member LaTocha Scott, original Destiny’s Child member LaTavia Roberson and former 702 lead singer Meelah Williams each appeared for one season.

AlwaysAList says it reached out to TV One, but the network would not confirm the cancellation. However, 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 Atlant.,’”

Mike Epps recently spoke on Chris Rock’s latest flop movie, Top Five and said he doesn’t understand why White people keep giving Chris Rock opportunities.

Here’s what Mike Epps said about the movie Top Five:

“I haven’t seen it. I don’t know why they called it ‘Top Five? There wasn’t one good comedian in the whole movie.

I don’t know why they keep giving Chris Rock opportunities. He’s a great standup and a good Meerkat. When do these white people – they’re blind. They keep giving the wrong dude opportunities.”

“I have an incredible partner and manager.  She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career,” he said. “She’s someone who has been able to support and understand all of who I am. Not just as a dancer or as a performer or as a singer, but as a humanitarian and a businessman and as a person.”

NEWS: DJ Esco Freed From Dubai Prison

by image49

After being held in a Dubai prison for 2 months DJ Esco is now a free man. According to the website 7 Days In Dubai, charges against Future’s tour DJ have been dropped and he has been freed to board his Delta Airlines flight home at 11pm tonight.

Esco was scheduled to appear alongside Future at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix concerts on November 18th but was caught with 18 grams marijuana at the Dubai International Airport after arriving from Amsterdam.

“He admitted that he consumed marijuana before coming to Dubai. He didn’t have any criminal intention and was not aware that marijuana is illegal in the UAE. It was a mistake,” Defense lawyer Mohammad Al Redha. Esco was drug tested and they did find marijuana in his system, but consumption charges were dropped due to the fact he did not do the drugs in UAE. Also no possession charges were pursued.

Mohammad Al Redha says Esco has been in great spirits the entire time of his incarceration. “He is a charming and polite person – even his [prison] wardens loved his character. He will be back home soon.”
