If you saw Lil Mo discussing her feelings about Keyshia Cole and Beyonce’s “Bow Down,” then you know she has a strong personality and a way with words. She’s witty. Kind of puts you in the mind of K. Michelle but more churched and more classy. She’s a riot. She sat down with the Breakfast Club to discuss her career, why she doesn’t rock with Keyshia Cole and her role on the new show “R&B Divas: L.A.” Check out a few excerpts from the interview and then watch the entire video on the last page.
On having her kids on the show “R&B Divas”
Lil Mo: “My baby son he’s 9 months, he has his shots.
Envy: Mo make him sound like a dog.
Lil Mo: No cuz you know people have their baby out, it be the size of my phone ‘here he is.’ If you don’t take that baby…it’s germs out here. It’s the flu. That baby could die! I don’t play that. So he has his shots, he’s of age. And I was like, yo these kids need jobs because…
Angela Yee: Wait, hold on so the baby gets paid too?
Mo: Yes. I have a great lawyer.
Her personality on the show
It got to the point. They had to add on extra weeks of shooting. I would shoot everyday. Listen, everything I am invited to, I take over. When I do radio, I don’t do nothing less than number one. When I do songs, as long as I got a machine and budget behind me, I can make top 40. When I do tv, you’re going to want to see me in my element. I only know how to dominate. That’s my personality. I don’t go in like ‘aaaahhh’ I don’t know where people get that from . But I made it my business to bring my staff with me. I had hair and makeup everyday . Clothes. I ain’t wear the same thing twice. I can’t speak for the other ladies.
Who’s your best friend on the show?
Honestly, everybody. I took everybody for their flaws and everybody. I’m my own best friend I didn’t sign on because of who signed on. I signed on because this is something I wanted to do because it’s great for promotion, visibility as well as my whole movement.
I talk to Chante Moore. You would never expect her to be like mad cool. Like cool like us.
The hoopla over Beyonce’s song “Bow Down” may be old news, but I don’t think the damage to Keyshia Cole’s career will ever be undone. Sure, worse things could — and have been — said, but after two months in a row of throwing shade at former Destiny’s Child members just about everybody is done with that child.
Enter Lil Mo who recently did an interview with Hip Hop Hollywood. Though the singer’s main focus was on her own affairs, like the upcoming season of “R&B Divas,” she did take some time to answer the site’s questions about Beyonce’s new track. Though Mo doesn’t have any problem whatsoever with the track, she does have a problem with its biggest critic, Keysh. During the Q&A, Lil Mo said:
“I saw on blogs where they wrote up about certain artists tweeting, talking about first you talk about women’s empowerment, now you talk abut bow down. But, (ahem), a couple of weeks ago you just said that was your queen and you dissed Michelle, now… (pause) you know? Why are you gonna put ‘em on the throne and get mad when they throw scraps to the peasants?
“Just sit down, get off Twitter. If you can’t handle it, keep your opinion to yourself. Who is your publicist, who is tweeting for you?”
I’m pretty sure those are the burning questions on everyone’s minds — although we already know the answer to that last one. Ain’t nobody tweeting that nonsense but Keyshia Cole Gibson from Oakland, California.
Check out Lil Mo’s hilariously animated video below. What do you think about what she said?
Unexpectedly, I became a fan of the R&B Divas in Atlanta. Unlike most reality tv shows featuring casts comprised of mostly women, the R&B Divas had disagreements but they never resulted in blows or bottles being thrown. There was no physical drama but the show was never boring. So I’m happy to see that TV One is expanding the franchise and hiring a whole new cast for LA. We already told you who’s going to be on the show but here’s what we’re looking forward to learning and seeing from each cast member.
If you enjoyed the premiere season of TV One’s hit reality show, R&B Divas, you’re in for quite a surprise as the cast of the show’s Los Angeles spin-off, R&B Divas: L.A. has officially been announced. The new series will be starring Kelly Price, Chanté Moore, Lil Mo, City High’s Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson, reports Broadway World.
The eight-episode series is said to revolve around the six ladies and their attempts to reemerge into the spotlight that they once dominated. Although the commonality shared between the cast members is their desire for the limelight, they each add their own touch of personal drama to the storyline, according to the show’s press release.
Kelly Price is seeking to “conquer the music business” while remaining devoted to her husband and manager Jeffery Rolle and their three children.
Hip Hop songstress, Lil Mo is returning to the music industry after an extended hiatus, which she took to focus on her children, who range in age from 10 years old to 4 months old and her husband/manager, Phillip Bryant.
A newly divorced Chanté Moore is gearing up for her 2013 album release as she continues to raise her two children.
Claudette Ortiz, former lead singer of R&B group, City High is seeking to revive her music career and secure financial stability for her three children after her ugly divorce from City High group member, Ryan Toby.
Since her 2007 divorce, Dawn Robinson has thrown herself completely into her craft as she attempts to form a girl group and prepares for an upcoming book release.
Last but not least, Michel’le copes with single motherhood as she seeks to “reclaim her place” in the music industry, release a memoir and meet someone special by she re-entering the dating world.
The series is scheduled to begin production in Los Angeles this month.
What do you think of the lineup?
Remember Lil’ Mo?
She and her Gospel singer husband, Phillip Bryant, had a baby today!
Their son is their second child together and the fourth for Lil Mo’, who has two children from a previous marriage. Jonah Maddox-Phillip Bryant, arrived at 9:46am and weighs 8 lbs 6 oz. He joins his brother Justin McKenzie, 3, and sisters Heaven Love’on, 9 and God’Iss Love, 7. (Clearly, Phillip is not a fan of wacky celebrity baby names.)
In the press release Lil Mo said:
I think I put a spell on my womb when I said every time I put out an album a baby is sure to be made. My whole movement is the whole iLove ME theme, so when my husband Phillip Bryant and I found out we were preggers with baby number 4, we knew the spell had come true. We and our other 3 are all excited and ready for baby number 4, which is a boy!! So 2 boys and 2 girls; Sweet I’ve got my balance lol. I thank all my fans for their well wishes and continued support.
The pint sized singer is most memorable from her Murder, Inc. days but the “Superwoman” didn’t let a fall out with Ja Rule and Irv Gotti halt her career. She continued to make music then became a radio host in Baltimore and DC. Afterward she went back to music. Before having her baby, she was on the road promoting her new album “P.S. i Love Me” and says she will be back in the studio soon working on a fifth album.
Congratulations to the happy couple!

Lil Mo, channeled her inner Whitney Houston when she sang “The Greatest Love of All,” for a fundraiser benefiting the Maya Angelou schools. The annual event, held in Washington D.C., was hosted by Common and Dr. Angelou.
With a full baby bump, Lil Mo did the song justice without going too far overboard.
Check out the video of her performance below:

Some of the most underrated talent in R&B, Lil Mo and Tweet, recently collaborated for their new song, “I Love Me.” From the title of the track you might guess that the song chronicles a series of bad relationships and a woman’s final realization that she loves herself more than the trifling men she’s been messing with. I know at least some of you can relate. Check out the video below.
