Just days after the controversial R&B Divas Atlanta reunion, thejasmineBRAND.com correspondent, Smith chatted with the Brownstone singer at the Champions For Choice event in L.A.

Does she feel Wendy Williams overstepped her boundaries as a reunion host? Should Angie Stone’s personal life w boyfriend/manager be off limits? Thoughts other cast members?

See her response in our conversation below.

thejasmineBRAND: We gotta ask you about the R&B Divas Atlanta Reunion, what did you think about it?

You know what? My thoughts were that I love KeKe Wyatt, I think she’s absolutely incredible for speaking up and being very, very honest and real. I was shocked at Monifah. I was pleasantly surprised with Selena, because she did have a borderline nice thing to say about me, now didn’t she? ‘Don’t miss her on the show but miss her in real life’ and I felt bad for Angie Stone, I don’t think anybody should have to go through that. I felt very bad for her.

theJasmineBRAND.com: Speaking of Angie Stone, she got offended at the way Wendy Williams was asking about her significant other/Manager. Do you think Wendy Williams went below the belt with that?
