Lawsuit Drama Over TV One’s Hollywood Divas!!
Nicci Gilbert is taking TV One to court over the show Hollywood Divas. The former Brownstone singer, who served as executive producer and star on the first two seasons of R&B Divas: Atlanta, is upset that she is being left out of the new reality series, whose title and concept appears to be a spinoff of the Divas show.
Gilbert is filing suit against ThinkFactory Media, Inc and TVOne LLC on the basis of several allegations, including breach of contract and defamation; she is requesting both punitive damages and attorney’s fees.
TV One announced the news of Hollywood Divas just last week. The show follows the lives of actresses Elise Neal (The Hughleys), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends), Paula Jai Parker (Hustle and Flow), Countess Vaughn (The Parkers, 227) and reality star Lisa Wu (The Real Housewives of Atlanta) as they deal with the obstacles when it comes to the “Hollywood merry-go-round.” Hollywood Divas is currently in production in Los Angeles.
