Kelly Price Shares Her Biggest Regret And Appreciation For Fans Who Held Her Accountable
In part 3 of C Nikky.com’s exclusive interview, Kelly Price is addressing the fans, the people who were shocked to see her act so unlike we perceived her to be all of these years. While watching the show, Kelly Price said she was also shocked at the what she saw on her television screen. She even went as far to say that she was not just angry but pissed off at the way the producers set her up.
“I have real issues with some of the staff. When you try to present me as the joke, and you ask me to wear a dress that’s too small on camera because you think it’s funny. And you have another staff member who stands in my home and tells me to go eff myself or he doesn’t care if I go eff myself. Stuff like that happening, the tension builds and that’s where I say I have the right to be upset like just anybody else would. I’m not angry, I’m pissed off at that point. As I well have the right to be.”
In her depiction on screen, there were tons of people who confronted Kelly, either rudely and disrespectfully or in sheer confusion, seeking explanation. She addressed those folks and even thanked them for holding her accountable.
“I do appreciate my fans. And my fans, to me, are not the people who came online and called me out of my name and cursed the day I was born. Those are not fans. To me those are temperamental people who got really too involved I think in television. My fans are the people who held me accountable. And I want to say thank you to them because holding me accountable is wait a second Kelly, this is not the Kelly that I know…and I want to go with you on this, but you look kinda crazy right now. And after all of these years of me supporting you, please don’t tell me that this is the person that you are because I don’t want to believe that this is you, but you’ve got to say something. So, that’s the reason why I’m doing this.”
But Kelly also acknowledged that she’s not just doing it for the fans. There are a slew of other people, who she’s known personally who were watching the show, wondering where all of this attitude was coming from.
“I have presented myself as an R&B singer who sings about love and positivity and sometimes the bad side of it in life. But I also represent myself as the preacher’s kid and the girl who still goes to church and never stopped going to church. I’m the minister of music at my church right now. The people I go to church with are watching this show. My pastor, who trusts me to get up in his pulpit every Sunday and lead praise and worship and be over all of the different musical groups, is watching this show. So I did this for the people who are watching. They need to know what really happened. And from this point on, everybody has to kind of make their own decision. But it is the truth. It is the 100% truth.”
In retrospect, Kelly shared her biggest regret from her participation in “R&B Divas LA”:
“My biggest regret is that I agreed to do something that wasn’t fully authentic for the sake of keeping production going. I should have just kept saying no to what I didn’t agree was right.”
