The Reality TV Hustle :: Faith Evans Discusses Role in New Show

In a recent interview with Ebony.com, 39-year-old Faith Evans discussed her new reality show, R&B Divas, that will air on TV One on Monday, August 20 at 10 p.m. EST.   

Faith will costar along with Syleena Johnson, Monifah Carter, Keke Wyatt and Nicci Gilbert – all former chart topping artists who are now in the process of rebuilding their careers. The show seems to revolve around one common factor – each woman had a special love and admiration for the late Whitney Houston.

Faith Evans on why she decided to participate in the show:

I actually had a few different opportunities and shot a few pilots for reality projects, and I definitely was reluctant to do them, but this ended up being a great vehicle for me. I don’t have to shoulder it because I’m very private and very guarded, but this show actually chronicles me getting ready to put together a charity album with all female R&B singers.

She also discussed one of her most memorable moments with Whitney Houston:

I had a 30th birthday back when I was living in Atlanta and Whitney came. She was calling me all the days to find out what time I was going, and if I wanted to ride with her and Bobby. So she gets to the party and everybody’s like, ‘Whitney’s at the party! Whitney’s at the party!’ And she comes riding around the corner on Bobby Brown’s back! A lot of my friends that were there that night, they often talk about that. They’re like, ‘I’ll never forget she was riding around your party on Bobby Brown’s back!’

I’m not sure how entertaining the show will be, the whole thought of it evolving from their love for someone who is no longer alive seems a little creepy, but maybe there will be other highlights to look forward to.
