As you’re aware — there is always three sides to a story. And such is the case for those who share part of their lives on reality TV. Recently, we chatted with singer Chante Moore, a cast member of TV One’s R&B Divas LA. After wrapping season two, she’s certainly experienced her share of entertainment and drama with cast members.
Does she feel she was accurately portrayed this season? Did she feel physically threatened by Lil Mo? What didn’t we see during the reunion show? What’s the real beef with her and Chrisette Michele? Did she feel threatened by the new cast members? Find out all the above and more during out conversation.
theJasmineBRAND.com: As a viewer, this season seemed really intense. After you watched the entire season and watched the reunion, how do you feel about this season?
Chante Moore: It was really difficult to watch. It was a time of mourning for me. My brother passed away right before we started filming and my mother passed away on his birthday. So it was the first time I got through a birthday of his without him and her. So it was really just a difficult time. My daughter turned 18 and she just went away to school. All that happening at the same time was just pretty intense for me and the girls seeming flip flopping back and forth, “I like you, I don’t like you.” I was like, “You know what I don’t even have time to tell you why I am the way I am.”
theJasmineBRAND.com: Do you feel like you were accurately portrayed?
Chante Moore: What I feel is that people will sometimes assume quietness for weakness, or quietness for being mean. I think some of the girls wanted a mentor or a guide and I wasn’t there to mentor or guide. Friendship and trust is earned and two of the young ladies I just met. The other young ladies I thought we had a trust bond before that. It seemed like things kind of flip flop back and forth and I didn’t have time. I don’t play in the sandbox.
theJasmineBRAND.com: There was lots of tension between you and the entire cast, with the exception of Claudette. What do you think caused that?
