Angie Stone & Sunshine Anderson ADDED To "R&B Divas,"

FAB: Angie Stone & Sunshine Anderson ADDED To "R&B Divas,"

Photobucket

The streets are buzzing about big changes over at "R&B Divas" with two high-profile castmates leaving and two new divas set to take their place. Get the deets on the alleged changes inside and find about other reality show's popping up in Atlanta...

"R&B Divas" turned out to be a surprise hit for TV One, but the show's season one cast-lineup wasn't exactly a hit with the executives or people surveyed about the show. We told you earlier that Nicci Gilbert's likability wasn't very high among viewers so she got the axe, and now, sources are reporting that Faith Evans is also walking away from the show. It's not for certain whether Faith is going away willingly...but she's not expected to be back.

So who will be filling the void? R&B veterans Sunshine Anderson ("Heard It All Before") and Angie Stone ("Brother") are expected to come on-board. And since "R&B Divas" isn't necessarily built on scandals and arguents, it may be a good way to put the ladies music back on the map since we haven't heard much from either of them in a while. I DO want some dish on Mathew Knowles (Sunshine's manager) and D'Angelo (Angie's baby daddy) though.

As for now, Syleena Johnson, KeKe Wyatt and Monifah are expected to be back (though TV One has not confirmed).

I thought it was going to be a one-off to begin with! that is just so they could launch that group album.

I mainly checked the show for Faith but it's Nicci's unpredictability that kept me watching (especially her fits with Syleena lol), so with those very two being gone I don't think it'll be the same.

"what's that book where they're all behind the wardrobe?"

I agree. They had to have somebody to bring that "drama" factor even though it's not a dramatic-bitch throwing type show and that's what Nicci brought to it. I especially enjoyed watching Faith Evans, I've always liked her though. To me she brought the balance of keeping everyone together on the show. Now with both Nicci and Faith gone, I don't see the point in watching. Angie and Sunshine are okay, but it doesn't make me that interested in watching season 2.

I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.

I like Angie, so I'll watch for her. Sunshine Anderson I don't know so well, and have always gotten her mixed up with tv chef Sunny Anderson on the Food Network lol

The "R&B Divas" are prepping their next season of drama on TV One. And earlier this week, we posted that sites were reporting that two new divas--Angie Stone & Sunshine Anderson--were asked to join the cast. It was also reported that Faith was not returning.

A member of the executive production team now tells TheYBF.com the deal.

"I'm not sure who [those sites] got that info from, the info is not accurate," the source tells us. "Our team (the producers and network) is still having ongoing dialog about Season 2 Atlanta. There have been NO offers made to any new ladies at this time. Faith Evans is still a part of the cast.

But as for Nicci, she's still axed from the cast, as we previously reported.
