Faith Evans, Tweet, Angie Stone & Others Set To Star In “Diary Of A Diva” Reality Show

Published October 7, 2011 by thesugahoneyicetea

Some of your fave grown R&B singers including Angie Stone, Tweet, Faith Evans and KeKe Wyatt are set to hit the small screen in 2012 for a reality series called “Diary Of A Diva.”  Get deets inside…..

Starting in 2012, a reality show about a group of Black women that focuses on the positive aspects of their lives as mothers and businesswomen will hit the small screen.  It’s called “Diary of a Diva.”  



The show shines a light on the personal and professional lives of Syleena Johnson, Faith Evans, Tweet, Angie Stone, Monifah, KeKe Wyatt, LeLee of SWV and Brownstone original member Nicci Gilbert and new member Teisha Jaretta.

And according to Syleena Johnson, who recently released her fifth album, Chapter V: Underrated, you shouldn’t expect to see any drinking tossing or knock out fights on the show.

She said,

“The good news is that you’re dealing with a group of women who have careers and lives and focus, where we don’t really have time to sit around and argue. So if there’s drama, which I’m sure there will be, there’s definitely going to be resolutions, you’re going to be able to see resolutions as well.”

She added that the show will include,

“…How we deal with men in the industry, that’s a dilemma, and I’m sure everybody wants to see that.”


Syleena also revealed that Nicci Gilbert came up with the idea.

“Nicci Gilbert created it all by herself. She approached me and then she went in with Faith for production. Faith was going to do her own show but Faith stopped her own show to do this one.”

It has not been announced which network will carry The Think Factory production.  We’re thinking TV One.  Because we all know VH1 wouldn’t give real talent and positivity the time of day….

When I saw these, I thought about ruffles and lace.  Or maybe dare to be different and pair with a plaid button up and your favorite jeans!  Either way, you can’t go wrong with this bootie in your closet!  It’s the Betsey Johnson Luvey Boot.  Seen here in taupe suede.  Also comes in black.  Check them out here.

The grandmother of Amanda Knox has revealed the latest news that publishers are already approaching the Knox family with proposed book deals and interviews.

Elisabeth Huff said that a publisher even turned up to her home in southwest Seattle shortly after the Knox conviction was overturned on Monday evening – well before her granddaughter arrived back in the U.S.

Black Eyed Peas out of Michael Jackson Concert

Published October 6, 2011 by thesugahoneyicetea



The Black Eyed Peas have pulled out of this week’s Michael Jackson tribute concert in Wales.

Organizers say the band, whose hits include “I Gotta Feeling,” has withdrawn due to “unavoidable circumstances.”

Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, Leona Lewis and Cee Lo Green are on the bill for Saturday’s “Michael Forever” show at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium.

Chris Hunt, chief executive of event organizer Global Live Events, said Wednesday that the concert would be a “fantastic evening,” despite the absence.

The show is not affiliated with Jackson’s estate, but his mother Katherine and other relatives are scheduled to attend.

Organizers have rescinded an offer to the band Kiss over singer Gene Simmons’ past criticism of Jackson.
