While most girl groups from the ’90s have broken up, sometimes in an ugly manner (i.e., En Vogue) to find themselves in obscurity, the ladies of Xscape, (with the exception of Tamika Scott) have all been lucky enough to find their way on reality television. LaTocha Scott is the newest former member to have such “luck,” as she will join Tiny on VH1, but with her own program.
Scott’s show will follow the singer, who had the most formidable and memorable pipes in the famous group, as she tries to make her way back into the music industry to revive her career as a solo artist. On top of that, the show will also feature her family, and according to Theybf.com, she will also discuss how life changed for her after her years in Xscape, mentally, physically and spiritually. I’m sure it wasn’t easy, because Scott has tried to revamp the group multiple times to no avail. With Tiny and her sister Tamika, as well as with a new member, the ladies tried to redo Xscape, but broke up in 2005. And we all know that Scott was talking to the media about another hopeful reconciliation, which Kandi Burruss publicly said hell no to. But it seems like Scott is going to get her shine again one way or the other. And if not on TV, possibly in music again, because she also just released a new Christmas song called “Missing You This Christmas” that I’m sure her fans will love.
I think I probably would have preferred to watch Scott on a classy show like “R&B Divas” and caught up with her that way since we all know that Vh1 likes to bring the rachet out of everyone for financial gain, but we wish her luck with this as-yet-to-be-titled project. We also hope it brings her the good publicity she’s looking for, and that it doesn’t expose us to a person we’re not too sure whether we’ll like or not (i.e., Kenya Moore’s behind on “Real Housewives of Atlanta. That girl was just the total opposite of what I thought she was going to be…*shakes head*). Question is, when the reality show finally debuts, will you watch?
