This show is clearly a launchpad for the talented individuals, who otherwise would be chugging along on their own without television as a promo tool.
City High’s Claudette Ortiz even revealed during a recent interview with Bossip that she was homeless during her musical hiatus and practically living in her car prior to landing her role on the show.
Prior to the show, I had really hit rock bottom and I was at a crossroads where I just had to [do the show]. All the little odd jobs that I was doing?were not enough to raise my children. So, I had to make a choice of am I going to continue going this way?
I was having a rough night. I had to leave the place I was at, and I was driving with the things in my trunk and my kids were asleep and I had nowhere to go. And that night Phil Thorton (producer) from the show texted me, but that night I was upset and I was crying.
R&B Divas: L.A. is like a breath of fresh air in comparison to it’s Atlanta predecessor and hopefully it will give the ladies the platform they need to share their talents.

The stars of ‘R&B Divas LA’ attended the Hollywood premiere event for the new TVOne reality show this past Monday (July 9, 2013).
Lil? Mo, Dawn Robinson, Michel?le, Chante Moore, Claudette Ortiz and Kelly Price all attended the event, held at The London in West Hollywood, California.
?R&B Divas LA? is a spin-off of ?R&B Divas,? which was originally set in Atlanta and featuring Faith Evans, KeKe Wyatt, Nickey Gilbert, Monifah Carter and Syleena Johnson.
While I couldn’t force myself to watch the Atlanta version of the show, the L.A. version has definitely caught my attention.
I honestly think it’s because the L.A. cast features a selection of ALL of my favorites and each and every L.A. cast member has music that I remember (but that’s just me).
