Lil Mo was a fan favorite of many “R&B Divas: LA” viewers in part because of her tell-it-like-it is realness, and she brought that honesty with her when speaking to Sister 2 Sister recently about how the show has affected her life.
It’s a TV show, but it’s also real life. Mo talks about how the reality hustle has opened new doors for her, while closing a few on past friendships. Plus, is a Lil Mo spin-off on the way?
She opens up about her plans for the future and why she’s one reality star who really does care how she’s portrayed on TV. Check it out.
Tracy: How is life after “R&B Divas: LA” season 1?
Lil Mo: Great. Everything is going great. This is what I needed to put me back where I want to be and where I intend to go as far as my career.
Tracy: Are you working on new music?
Lil Mo: Yes. In addition to my two singles that I put out in conjunction with the show—the theme song “I’m a Diva” that I wrote; I made it a whole song and “Ls Up” which I performed during the Divalogues; I made that whole song available on iTunes and online everywhere.
Tracy: A lot of reality stars say they learn about themselves after watching their lives on TV. Is that true for you and if so, what did you learn about Lil Mo?
Lil Mo: I know myself. I’ve done radio and I knew, matter of fact I studied, before I even stepped into that arena. You can’t just pop up on TV and think the real you is not going to come out at some point, but because I’ve been pretty candid and transparent my whole career, pretty much I think a lot of people got to see the personality—they got to see the visual side of my personality. People read my tweets. They’ve heard me on radio; they’ve heard interviews. They’ve read my story. They pretty much have been attracted to me by that. They actually got to see eight weeks of it, plus two weeks of the reunion and then the whole Divalogues. When I did the whole Cynthia vs. Lil Mo segment, people were like, ‘Yo, that’s some real stuff.’ I think it actually captivated people to see just how real I kept it. None of the things I did were real, fake, coerced or the trick of “the wizard.” I didn’t go on reality TV to be tricked. I trusted the process and I made it work in my favor. That’s what bosses do.
