The first half of a two-part special of R&B Divas LA: Reunion will premiere on TV One on Wednesday.
Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams hosts the two-part special where five out of the six cast mates appear. Chante Moore, Kelly Price, Michel'le, Claudette Ortiz and Lil Mo appeared for the reunion while former En Vogue member Dawn Robinson was noticeably absent.
Williams revisited the cast members' personal dramas including Price's alleged threat against Moore,Ortiz' homelessness and Michel'le's fake marriage to Death Row founder Suge Knight.
Ortiz, who was one third member of the '90s group City High that was founded by Wyclef Jean, revealed she fell on hard times once the group disbanded.
"Yes, I did not have stable place to live," Ortiz told Williams on the reunion stage. She then revealed that when she got the call to appear on the reality show, she was living in her car with her three children at the time.
Moore revisits Price's alleged threat and the topic becomes heated to the point of a near physical altercation.
Price recently addressed the rumors started by Moore that she wanted to fight her during their "divalogues" rehearsals. Fans might recall the most-discussed episode when Price pulled out a jar of Vaseline, a pair of Timberland boots and mentioned a razor blade. It was perceived as a threat by Moore and became a major story line. On the reunion show, Price explained to Moore the items were props for the rehearsals, not materials to be used in a real fight.
In a recent interview, Price said she did not have a razor blade with her and the incident was a misunderstanding.
“I saw the trailer and I gagged. Literally, I gagged because the boots and the Vaseline were in a bag full of props that I brought with me for rehearsal," she told CNikky.com. "There were pens and pencils; there was a composition notebook and there was another little book… I had a bunch of stuff inside this bag, props, and there was no straight edge [razor].”
“You see me pull the Vaseline out. You see me pull the boots out. You don’t even see my face when the word ‘straight edge’ happens. Not only did I not have a straight edge that day, I didn’t say straight edge that day,” said Kelly who explained that she mentioned the razor during another conversation. She said she believes the show's producers added the word straight edge razor to the final edit to make her appear to threaten Moore.
