*Reality TV fans sometimes choose if they want a particular reality star to come back. And LaTavia Roberson wasn’t a fan favorite on “R&B Divas: Atlanta” for her lack of fierceness and insecurities with singing.
Singing is a major part of the “R&B Divas” series and sometimes the divas faced insecurities with getting back out there and performing. But in most cases, these women overcame their fears.
Roberson struggled throughout the season to ever sing for real. And when she did VERY rarely sing — she did like a note or two. Also, she didn’t sound up to par with her cast mates.
The only diva to be on her side with her reluctance to sing was Meelah Williams — who like Roberson was in a 90s girl group. Unlike Roberson, Williams isn’t afraid to blow!
But the other divas asked and sometimes pushed Roberson to sing, which hardly ever worked — only causing friction between them and Roberson .
But leave it to KeKe Wyatt to call out some nonsense, and that’s exactly what she did with Roberson — asking her, “Are you a diva or not?”
It was the question on many fans’ minds about Roberson and her insecurities as a singer.
But Da Brat — during one of the season three’s episodes — said it best. She can’t be considered a diva if she doesn’t sing!
And the fans took to Twitter to share how much they agree with the criticism.
“Latavia needs to get over it [go] get therapy #RBDivasATL not being in Destiny’s Child DESTROYED her MIND,” wrote one Twitter critic.
“The only way y’all goin hear LaTavia sing is if y’all pull out them old DC albums and listen to the background vocals cuz ch…” another critic tweeted.
Another fan of the show said, “still can’t believe LaTavia storyline was all about her not wanting to sing smh. What a waste of tv time.”
But some critics questioned her ability to sing altogether. Maybe she doesn’t sing because she knows she doesn’t sound too well.
“Latavia sounds like she needs some tea for that throat,” another critic tweeted.
But there are fans on Roberson’s side — applauding her courage to finally face her fears of singing and performing.
“I love your voice so soulful sweet low tone so beautiful.Keep doing you.All the best!” Ledisi wrote.
“R&B Divas” co-creator Nicci Gilbert added encouraging words.
“I applaud Latavia for facing & conquering her fears I am a fan & want to see more of her #GENUINESPIRIT.”
