Singer/reality star Nicci Gilbert (co-creator R&B Divas) is defending her good friend and reality TV star colleague, Kelly Price (of R&B Divas LA). The singer is unpleased with how Kelly is being attacked on social media and portrayed on the popular TV One show.
This afternoon, Nicci took to her Instagram page, venting about how people should be less quick to judge and more supportive. She also points the finger at online bullies, writing:
If u are building your brand off other peoples pain, you’re building PAINFUL brand and at some point you WILL FEEL ALL OF IT #ThatIsAll … It’s hard to watch people say such horrible things about such a talented woman and friend…BUT TIME HEALS & TELLS ALL @KellyPRice4Real…I see CLEARLY how based on what you see ‘CLEARLY’ you think you KNOW so based on that I understand the REACTIONS AND I TRUST GOD PLANS… KEEP WATCHING……
Instead of people all this energy into destroying someone PRAY FOR THEM you have NO IDEA how this is affecting this woman. IT’S NOT GOOD…The sad thing is how quickly ‘WE AS A PEOPLE’ allow them to use ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ as TOOLS to destroy our ‘OWN PEOPLE’ #IAintIntoThat … I suspect that as a result of me speaking the truth you will see a few more fraudulent blogs, articles, etc., about me soon LOL…#touche. #theButler made me realize the fight is NOT OVER, this time instead of billy clubs and hoses its social media and online bullies #FB #Stick2Gether
Nicci is familiar with having challenges with fans and critics of her on the original version, R&B Divas. There have been online petitions, along with accusations that one of the shows executive producers, Phil Thornton, has been unfair in the editing room, which he denies. Meanwhile, Kelly Price has remained pretty mum on social media, outside of a few supportive ReTweets on Twitter. What are your thoughts on Nicci’s comments defending Kelly Price? Are (media) and fans being too critical?
