Lil Mo talked to Sister2Sister magazine about being asked about her new ventures and she was very real about it. She told the reporter that she was originally asked to join the show for the Atlanta version and well she thought that she just didn't fit in. She felt that her hip hop background was a little bit too loose for the R&B Divas she would've been paired with. She didn't really feel the vibe with those ladies. She felt the only mainstream artist on the show was Faith Evans which was true.
Plenty of music careers were boosted by stints on Reality TV: American Idol, The X Factor, America's Got Talent, The Voice, Love & Hip Hop (ATL and NY), and now R&B Divas. Listen I see nothing wrong with these shows some of these ex-artists or re-emerging artists just to find an opening for them to get their foot in the door again. With all the new talent and the constant pushing of people who are already in well established careers (i.e. Rihanna, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown etc.) its hard to push through. Besides these ladies on both versions of R&B Divas are true R&B artists. They are what R&B was about and they could truly and honestly sing.
I hope the show works out for ALL them and really gives them the boost they need. Good Luck ladies I hope this show pushes you all to the level you all deserve!
