Last week RC posted a story regarding the internet rumors circulating about Nicci Gilbert and Faith Evans not returning for season two of TV One’s R&B Divas. Although both ladies are co-executive producers, they were allegedly being replaced by Sunshine Anderson and Angie Stone.

Well, according to, all five ‘original’ divas were scheduled to participate in Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Divas Simply Singing  this past weekend.  Reportedly, a source close to the event said the ladies were there shooting scenes for the first episode of season two. Both Faith and Syleena would sing their respective singles while the remaining ladies perform to cover songs.

At the time of the story, neither Anderson nor Stone were scheduled to appear at Divas.

So, where does this leave us?  For now, it appears that fans will enjoy Nicci, Syleena, Faith, Monifah and Keke for one more season.

In the meantime, casting is underway for an LA spin-off of the show. No word yet as to who may be joining but I am sure it will be just as entertaining as the Atlanta franchise has been this first season.

Stay close to RC as this story continues to develop.
