‘I Had A Similar Concept On The Back Burner:’ Angie Stone On Why She Didn’t Join The Cast Of ‘R&B Divas’ Until Season 2
When it was first announced that Angie Stone would be added to the cast of R&B Divas Atlanta, only two things came to mind:
1. “There’s about to be a lot more drama added to the show’s storyline.”
2. “Why the heck didn’t TV One producers think of this sooner?”
Thought number one was confirmed almost instantly, considering that Angie is already beefing with co-star KeKe Wyatt. And Angie recently addressed number two during an interview with Hello Beautiful. According to Angie, she was actually invited to join the cast of R&B Divas during season one, but politely declined because she had been playing around with a similar reality show concept.
“I didn’t join the first season because I had a similar concept on the back burner and I didn’t realize that Nicci and Faith had the same vision. Ideas are universal. Sometimes the same ideas are born at the same time — it happens!!!! I didn’t want to be in competition with my sisters because we all had the same vision. The truth is, they wanted me on their show and I wanted them on mine! Since then we’ve come to a happy medium. They invited me to join the cast because they knew this was a vision of mine. We met in the middle and the rest is history. I saw my dream unfolding on television and I am happy that I’m truly a part of this vision,” the soulful songstress revealed.
“God loves me and placed me on a platform to share my way of thinking and that includes my first-class mentality. I’m from the hood but I have a first class mentality. My philosophy is simple – THINK FIRST-CLASS, PRACTICE FIRST-CLASS and eventually, YOU WILL BE FIRST CLASS.”
Are you feeling Angie’s presence on the show so far?
