'R&B Divas' adds two new cast members
Angie Stone and LaTocha Scott, formerly of Xscape, join TV One series for Season 2
TV One's reality show, "R&B Divas," is about to get juicier when new cast members, Angie Stone and LaTocha Scott, join the series in Season 2. The network announced the additions Thursday.
Stone, who is best known for hits such as "Seems You're Much Too Busy" -- a 1993 tune she sang with then group Vertical Hold -- "Brotha" and "More Than a Woman," is a Grammy nominated artist.
The 51-year-old industry veteran is also a mother and grandmother, who has a child with R&B singer D'Angelo. So, glimpses into Stone's personal life will be anything but dull.
As for Scott, 39, she has a child with her manager and an ongoing feud with former Xscape band mates Tameka "Tiny" Cottle and Kandi Burruss. Cottle is married to rapper T.I. and the pair star in the VH1 reality show, "T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle." Burruss, meanwhile, is a co-star on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
Stone and Scott will join existing "R&B Divas" Monifah Carter, Faith Evans, Syleena Johnson, Keke Wyatt and Nicci Gilbert on the series, which pulls in 1.2 million viewers and is TV One's highest-rated reality offering.
"R&B Divas" Season 2 kicks off Spring 2013 on TV One.
