R&B Divas Debuts in ATL

The songbirds returned to the small screen last night with a big splash.

Nicci Gilbert, Monifah, Syleena Johnson and KeKe Wyatt are back. Joining them for a second season are Angie Stone and LaTocha Scott, (of Xscape).

The show is rumored to be as strong as the first season, with a few new twists. Faith Evans revealed one of the things that makes R&B Divas successful: "There are other reality shows that had one or two cast members that were previously popular in another lane. But, in our show none of us did this to try and become popular. We already came with our own fan bases.” The fact that the ladies have their own fan bases, careers, and egos may prove to be an issue this season as they bump heads in the planning of their first tour.

In fact, during the premiere of the show, two separate premiere parties were hosted in Atlanta with Nicci Gilbert and KeKe Wyatt at Museum Bar and Angie Stone, Syleena Johnson, and LaTocha Scott at Harlem Nights.

Watch the video recap of both events here:

At both parties, radio personalities, television producers, music artists and more came through to show the ladies their support. Even cast members from other Atlanta-based reality shows, "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" and "Real Housewives of Atlanta" showed love at both events.

Check out the video and catch the show on TVOne on Wednesdays at 10pm.
