Don’t be saving Nicci Gilbert no spot in the unemployment line hunty! The brains behind the ‘R&B Divas‘ is clapping back at rumors she’s been gooped out of the cast of her own show.
A few weeks back a TV One survey revealed Nicci as the least liked diva. But let her tell it, that doesn’t mean she’s going anywhere!
“I’m going to say this… It seems like to me all the characters that viewers can’t relate to or don’t like tend to be the ones that keep people watching,” Nicci tells SireSays. “So if I was a network and I had a NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore or whatever [I wouldn’t fire them]. So people need to think a little more, I’m not trying to be insulting; but, as long as you’re invoking some kind of emotion from somebody, they’re not going to throw you out.”
“I think it’s funny. I don’t take it seriously until TV One comes to me and says ‘Hey Nicci…’ And the way it works in this industry is they wouldn’t come to me. they would go to my lawyer and my lawyer would be contacting me saying, ‘Hey look, you know…’ And that hasn’t happened.”
Listen to the firing remarks around the 10:30 mark with the spinoff talk to follow:
Like I said before, give the girl a payout for her idea and send her packing. After seeing Nicci’s unwillingness to sing … and she’s a SANGER… along with that flop song that was put on the ‘R&B Divas’ album, the girl has got to go!
