EXCLUSIVE: Nicci Gilbert OFFICIALLY NIXED From "R&B Divas"!
Nicci Gilbert, the headstrong singer/fashion designer on "R&B Divas" has officially been fired (or nicely asked to leave) from the cast, TheYBF.com has exclusively learned. Get the deets on why she was dropped inside and where the show is headed for a spinoff.....
Though "R&B Divas" has become a success for TV ONE, TheYBF.com has learned that former Brownstone member and show co-creator, Nicci Gilbert, was given the axe. A source from the show's executive production team told us that market research they conducted showed that viewers just didn't connect to Nicci. In fact, we were told that 95% of those polled said that Nicci was their LEAST favorite diva. WOMP.
The production team doesn't want to announce the firing publicly until a cast for season two is in place...but Nicci has already been shown the door. Also, an L.A. spinoff is in the works for the show ad that cast will be announced soon.
But it doesn't seem like Nicci is letting the news get her down. The "Curvy Diva" still has her Curvato clothing line and even Retweeted a fan's comment about getting her and her former co-stars on BET's Black Girls Rock. At least she doesn't seem to hold a grudge against the other ladies.
Who do you think should be amongst the next group of selected "R&B Divas"?
