Monifah Is Completely Over LaTavia Roberson’s Excuses (VIDEO)
Tonight is a brand new episode of TV One’s R&B Divas AtlantaSeason 3 and guys, it looks like the divas are fed up with LaTavia Roberson’s flack. All season long, LaTavia has made excuse after excuse as to why she can’t (or won’t) sing a solo, back up, and/or an ensemble song for the ladies’ one-night only concert. And in this new sneak peek, diva Monifah and KeKe Wyatt appear to finally have had enough.
When diva Syleena Johnson asks LaTavia if she’s planned a song, LaTavia begins to fumble. That’s when Monifah jumps in, laughing as she says, “No, LaTavia. Say ‘no.’” Moments later, Monifah — who of all the divas has been the most patient with LaTavia — turns to the former Destiny’s Child singer and tells her that it looks “unfair.” When LaTavia asks “what looks unfair,” Monifah spells it out for her.
“That we’re all here and it seems to be the theme now… it’s just a little upsetting,” Monifah tells her. When LaTavia asks what everyone expects her to do about it, Monifah replies, “You’re going to sing.” And just like that, LaTavia comes up with one of the worst excuses yet: “How I am going to sing? I ain’t had no rehearsal.”
This new excuse strikes a chord with all the divas, particularly KeKe, who immediately jumps in with “To be truthful, ain’t nobody had no f—ing rehearsal.” LaTavia’s friend (and newbie diva) Meelah Williams tries to calm the situation down by saying LaTavia can at least provide support on stage with the rest of the divas, but Monifah’s notes that if LaTavia intends to sit on stage with them, she needs to sing.
“I mean, y’all don’t think that would look weird if she wasn’t?” Monifah asks.
Going into defense mode, LaTavia says all the discussion around her singing or not is starting to give her a headache, and KeKe jokes that being sick is always LaTavia’s go-to scheme to get out of a conversation. When LaTavia says she’s cramping over her period, KeKe goes in for the kill with a pretty TMI comment. Want to know what KeKe says? Watch the clip above and tune in tonight to see how LaTavia takes the criticism.
R&B Divas Atlanta Season 3, Episode 9: “California Love” airs tonight, Wednesday, June 18, at 10 p.m. ET on TV One.
