RUMOR CONTROL: FORMER 702 Singer Kameelah "Meelah" Williams NOT Singing Her Way Onto "R&B Divas: Atlanta"...At Least Not Yet
Kameelah "Meelah" Williams, who once fronted the 90's girl group 702, is rumored to be the latest "addition" to "R&B Divas: Atlanta". But our sources say it's not true. At least not yet. Get deets on the non denial/denial inside.....
The Atlanta rumor mill has been buzzing about a new addition to the "sanging" chicks of "R&B Divas: Atlanta". We've heard that Kameelah Williams, who rose to fame in the 90s as part of the group 702 ("Get It Together", "Steelo") will be joining the cast for season three.
For those who aren't too familiar with Kameelah and her personal life, she has a son with Musiq Soulchild and has been working on solo project in Atlanta, which may included a few tracks with Stevie J. And back in the day, Faith Evans once served as her mentor, with Kameelah singing on Faith's "Burning Up" single and appearing in the video.
We reached out to a source on the "R&B Divas: Atlanta" production team who told us, "There have been no additional cast members added to "R&B Divas: Atlanta". Meanwhile, Kameelah's manager told us that they could neither deny nor confirm her casting.
Hmmm....it sounds like Kameelah hasn't signed her contract yet or the producers are still "figuring out" her place on the show. Or maybe she's not doing it at all. You'll recall that the producers kept the additions of LaTocha Scott and Angie Stone under wraps for a long time before they officially confirmed them.
We'll keep our eyes peeled to see if she pops up during a cameo this season. Meanwhile, "R&B Divas: LA" is set to debut on TvONE July 10 and the "Atlanta" crew wraps up their season on June 19th.
In case you missed it:
Meelah released a very underrated single called "I Should Let You Go" produced by the infamous "LAHH ATL" producer Stevie J a few months ago. We actually like the song, which only serves to remind us that there's more to Stevie J than his "bus" of females.
