Chrisette Michele Joins ‘R&B Divas: LA’
Chrisette Michele is the next diva to join reality television. The singer, who dropped her fourth album, ‘Better,’ earlier this year, is slated to join ‘R&B Divas: LA’ next season.
“The debut season of R&B Divas: LA set the tone as a series all about glamor and high-stakes drama,” said D’Angela Proctor, SVP Programming and Production, TV One. “As we gear up to shoot season two, we anticipate that the addition of two lovely and respected solo artists, Chrisette and Leela, will build upon the impassioned, ever-evolving group dynamic that season one viewers embraced.”
Expect the divas to take over L.A. in spring 2014.
Earlier this year, Chrisette spoke to Vibe Vixen about heartbreak and how therapy helped her through a dark time. “I thank God for therapy and for finding the right therapist, because if you don’t talk about it, if you don’t get it out, you don’t know that somebody else has been there,” she said.
She also described her new lease on life. “I’m in love with a person, I’m in love with life, and I’m in love most of all with myself. That feels the best.”
The 31-year-old New York native’s ‘Better’ LP, released in June, debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 27,000 copies in its first week. The project has been nominated for a 2014 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album.
