R&B Divas Dish on L.A. Spinoff at Hollywood Premiere



If you loved the R&B Divas of Atlanta, then get ready for the R&B Divas of L.A.

The spinoff follows beloved R&B singers Chante Moore, Kelly Price, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le, Dawn Robinson and Lil’ Mo as they work to re-establish their careers.

HipHollywood caught up with the ladies at their recent premiere party to dish on what fans can expect and why they said yes to being on the show.

“For me it was about just an opportunity to see what doing television was like,” said Kelly Price who also is working her own reality show “Too Fat For Fame”. “And I’m glad I did it. I’ve been bitten by the reality TV bug.”

“I was at a turning point in my life,” added Claudette Ortiz, formerly of the trio City High. “This opportunity fell in my lap and I decided to go ahead and try it and see how it works out.”

And while Ortiz hopes to inspire women after being in an abusive relationship with her former bandmate Robbie Pardlo, co- stars Chante Moore and  Dawn Robinson, formerly of En Vogue, want viewers to find out the truth about who they really are.

“Hopefully they see that I’m really an inspirational person, I love to inspire,” revealed Robinson who left the group over money in 1997. “That’s who I have always been, but that never got across in En Vogue.”

And if that isn’t enough, 90s R&B star Michel’le wants people to know that she is still on her grind, and is more than just Dr. Dre’s baby’s momma and Suge Knight’s ex-wife.

“I’m passionate about letting people know we still do what we do,” said Michel’le.  “And don’t call us has beens, because we ain’t gone no where … we just want to show what it’s like to keep your grind on.”

R&B Divas: L.A. airs Wednesday nights at 10PM ET on TV One.


Sorry Folks! Martin Lawrence Doesn’t Think ‘Bad Boys 3’ Will Happen



Martin Lawrence has pretty much lost hope in plans for another Bad Boys film, and for good reason. Over the last few months, the long-gestating third installment has lost it’s director and release date.

Now according to Lawrence it may have even lost one of it’s boys – co-star Will Smith. “I don’t think we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out,” Lawrence told EW. “Will is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

Just last December Smith told Jimmy Kimmel that Bad Boys 3 aka Bad Boys For Life,  was “very, very, very close” to beginning production. He also added of Lawrence, “I love that dude. That’s among the best times I’ve ever had making movies. So I’m looking forward to it.”

As for Lawrence, he’s ready if the project can get off life support. “I’m there, I’m ready right now,” said Lawrence. “If they wanted to do it, I’m ready, but I don’t have control of that. That’s the studio’s decision.”

Back in March, writer/director Joe Carnahan departed from the Sony Pictures’ flick after months of delays. And director Micheal Bay, who helmed both Bad Boys and Bad Boys II declined to return after too many set-backs. “Pretty soon its going to called Bad Old Boys because they can’t get it together with doing a script,” he told HipHollywood back in 2016. “Thats why I backed out of the process.”
