If you’ve been living under a TV One rock (*raises hand*), than you had no idea that LaTocha Scott had been officially named (yeah, we heard rumors too) as the newest cast member of R&B Divas-Atlanta (along with Angie Stone). And this week, she stopped by V-103, talking to radio personality Egypt about being a budding reality star, along with the industry (which has become public as of late) rumors that Kandi and her have SERIOUS issues with each other.
On her motivation behind joining ‘R&B Divas’:
“At first I was apprehensive but then I thought about the fact that people- I’ve been gone for a long time- and people have been like what’s going on with you and it’s the perfect platform for me to come back, and it’s all about the music. Well, you’re going to learn that I’m a mother. I do the same things that everybody else does. I’m on my grind in the studio all the time and just my relationship with [her husband/manager] Rocky.”
On the tension or rumored beef between LaTocha and Kandi:
“The only unfinished business I can think of, is the fact that we didn’t go onto the other albums that we were supposed to do. Other than that, I don’t understand where the unfinished business comes in at. I don’t know what she’s talking about…. I don’t know why people want to continue to hold on to the negative. I think we’ve all progressed in life, you know, everybody’s doing their thing. Big ups to Tiny and Kandi for standing in their lane with the television show. It’s great for them. And I just don’t understand why we have to keep going back to the negative. I want to move forward. I want to see 20 years, you know what I’m saying? This whole 20 year reunion is big for me, but to say you’re not going to do it because you feel like we have unfinished business is…I don’t want to say it’s insulting to the fans, but it’s like come on, it’s not even about that. Let’s get out of self and let’s think about what we did for music.”
On her thoughts on an Xscape reunion:
“I think we owe it to the fans, to the people. They put us all here…. This whole 20 year reunion is big for me, but to say you’re not going to do it because you feel like we have unfinished business is…I don’t want to say it’s insulting to the fans, but it’s like come on, it’s not even about that,” she shared. “Let’s get out of self and let’s think about what we did for music.”
