Nicci Gilbert uncertain about ‘R&B Divas: ATL’ season 3

    NicciGilbertIf there is a season 3 of “R&B Divas: Atlanta,” Nicci Gilbert said she hopes it will be about the singers getting past their differences and working things out.

    “Hopefully, what the third season will be is about us healing,” said Nicci, who isn’t 100 percent certain the hit TV One show will be returning. “We’ll see where we end up with season 3.”

    Though she and Faith Evans are credited with creating the show, they said season 2 wasn’t exactly what they’d hoped.

    “I’m happy with the success and I’m very thankful to God for those things, but we weren’t as involved creatively. So, I think things took a turn differently than what we initially had in mind,” Faith told

    Nicci, who told Sister 2 Sister that Faith, KeKe Wyatt and Monifah are the only co-stars she’s on a friendly basis with, admitted that the reality TV series has “been a hard ride.”

    The season began with an unresolved disagreement with co-star Syleena Johnson over the making of a DVD. By the final episode, Nicci and Angie Stone’s friendship was hanging on by a thread. Nicci resented Angie questioning her about her daughter’s charity and spreading rumors about her fashion line, Curvato.

    Angie apologized during Part 2 of the reunion show, which allowed Nicci to get a few things off her chest.

    “I felt like I had an opportunity to share some of the things that I needed to share,” said Nicci, who clarified to S2S that her fashion designs are American made, despite what Angie implied.

    “Now it’s all over online that I get my clothes made in China because of something Angie Stone said,” Nicci explained. “In my boutique—because everyone can’t afford a custom Curvato piece of clothes for $200—I sell the look for less and it states that when you go and buy it.”

    According to Nicci, Angie’s comments negatively affected her business, but she’s working on repairing her retail reputation.

    Although season 2 didn’t portray the sisterhood Nicci and Faith originally envisioned, Nicci’s hopeful the “R&B Divas: Atlanta” story will have a happy ending.

    “The good part about that is that you can always show something go bad and then go good again,” she told “Everybody loves a comeback story.”
