On why they decided to to R&B Divas: LA over other reality shows:
Lil’ Mo: “I never thought in a million years I’d do reality TV but I’m glad that I did because it’s given me an opportunity to get back out there and really promote what I love to do which is music.”
“I was asked about the Atlanta cast but when I found out about LA, I knew I was a better fit.”
Claudette: “I’ve been approached to do reality TV but I wanted to make sure this was something worth pursuing seeing as I have three children. I didn’t want it to be exploitive and negative.”
Chante: “I was asked to share my life and the focus was going to be on my music, that’s what I liked about it.”
On how the L.A. cast is different from Atlanta:
Claudette: “The location makes a difference.”
Lil’ Mo: “We have more notable songs and we’re cuter, young hip hop and r&b. We act younger and more fun.”
