Out of all of the original members of Destiny’s Child, LaTavia Roberson seems to be the one that we hear from the least. It looks like that is about to change very soon though, as the 31-year-old Houston native has some major news. According to the YBF, the singer is penning a tell-all book, filming for a new reality show, and is three months pregnant with her first child!
A press release distributed by Roberson’s reps reveals that the reality show will document LaTavia’s pregnancy, including whatever issues she is facing with her child’s father. While the man who fathers her unborn child currently remains nameless, the release did specify that he is a producer in Atlanta. Ironically, her baby is due on September 4th, former group member Beyoncé’s birthday. The singer will also tackle some demons from her past including the molestation that she endured in her younger years, her bouts with alcoholism and serving time in prison. Roberson is said to finally be opening up about Destiny’s Child drama as well.
“Her struggles to distance herself from the negativity surrounding her untimely departure from Destiny’s Child, still follow her, but LaTavia is determined to clear the air once and for all,” revealed the press release.
Her show is set to be executive produced by Carlos King, who is responsible for producing popular shows like Real Housewives of Atlanta and Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“I’m excited to work with LaTavia to effectively tell her story on television. This is her first time speaking out about her past. This woman has endured more than the public even realizes, and once they hear half of it, they will be in awe. She is a true survivor,” said King about working with 1/4 of the original Destiny’s Child.
Last but not least, the press release confirmed rumors that LaTavia is in fact working on a tell-all book that is scheduled to be released this year, in addition to solo music.
“Future plans also include returning to the studio to showcase her voice for the first time as a solo artist and the final release of her highly anticipated “tell all” memoir due later this year!”
Roberson says it’s nothing but love and support flowing between she and former Destiny’s Child group members, but inquiring minds want to know whether or not this will change once her book is released. It’s not uncommon for friends to become foes once secrets are leaked.
It will be very interesting to hear from LaTavia after all of these years. It’s great that she is reemerging on the spotlight, but I do wonder how she will manage all of her fabulous projects with a new baby on the way. But you know what they say, “where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
What do you think of LaTavia’s decision to write a tell-all? Would you tune in to her reality show?
