Following the dramatic ending of the second season of R&B Divas: Atlanta
and the rise of R&B Divas: Los Angeles
, executive producer
and half victim, half villain Nicci Gilbert-Daniels
wants you to see the work that her and Faith Evans
put in to get the franchise where it is today. Releasing the original pilot on her blog, Nicci offers a special look into the early stages of the show, which was originally called Diary Of A Diva
. The original cast of ladies includes all of the divas that you have seen on R&B Divas: Atlanta
with the exception of LaTocha Scott
. Also included in this special clip is SWV
founding member Leanne "LeeLee" Lyons
. Although there are slight hints of drama along with the ladies coming off a bit more raw and uncut, what's most enjoyable about this rare episode is the soundtrack of hits that plays throughout. From Evans' unreleased hip hop soul gem "Recognize (Ode To '95)"
to Keke Wyatt's "Mirror,"
which features Kelly Price
, this pilot highlights the very music that these women should be loved for most. Enjoy this special moment and gear up for another entertaining hour with the talented women of R&B Divas: Los Angeles
tonight on TV One at 10 pm.
