Syleena Johnson On Resolving Issues With Nicci Gilbert: We Have Resolved That We’ll Never Speak Again

May 1, 2014  |  

“R&B Divas Atlanta” has kicked off its third season with a punch — thankfully not literally, although it came close — so we had to get our favorite lady in the office to talk about all the drama going down on the hit TV One show. Last week Syleena Johnson came by and the first thing we wanted to know is what the heck is up with Keke and Monifah beefing? The second thing we wanted to know is how does she feel about Angie Stone saying all of the ladies are cold as a block of ice and, as expected, Syleena is definitely feeling some type of way about that remark.

Aside from those couple of tiffs, though, the energy among the “divas” is much better now that Nicci Gilber isn’t around, Syleena said, but don’t expect the two to be mending fences anytime soon. When we asked her if she and Nicci had resolved any of their issues Syleena said “we have resolved that we will never speak to one another again. That is the resolution baby!” We hear that.

Check out the video above to hear what else Syleena had to say about her castmates and the drama we’re about to see with Faith Evans over her being the only diva to get nominated for their compilation CD. Sounds a little shady…

    I love Sylenna, she is the realest!! For people to be tripping cause she cares never to kick it again with Nicci is crazy as heck, whatever folks, get over it!! Everybody could see that their relationship was toxic, everybody is not gonna be friends! Sylenna has a rich soulful sound when she sings, it’s not for everybody, but she has a fan base and she is a real singer. If anybody needs to be gone it’s Keke; as much as I love her singing abilities, I can not as a grown woman, stand her attitude and the craziness she and her husband bring, BYE Felicia!!!

    Well Syleena (Monifah & Angie) didn’t have a problem being booked in Nicci’s soul kitty cabaret musical (a JOB). Syleena didn’t have a problem with Nicci booking her on her gigs, i.e. soul kitty cabaret & R&B Divas….As Syleena stated she was closer to Nicci than Faith….So who does Syleena think got her on R&B Divas….NOT Faith! Nicci got her on this show. When her career doesn’t go as planned don’t blame Nicci for it. As a matter of fact the show needs to get rid of Syleena/Monifah & bring real singers, i.e. Sharon Bryant (from Atlantic Starr), Angela Winbush (Rene & Angela), Denise Williams, Karyn Washington, etc.

      Nicci, is this you?

    Who cares???? Nicci is still Syleena’s boss and is collecting those Exec Producer checks who I doubt she’s pressed about Syleena’s latest attempt to keep her name relevant.

    Sometimes it’s just best that way! If you can’t get along…just get gone and stay away from each other.
