Ever keen to take you above and beyond the industry’s velvet rope, That Grape Juice has engaged in conversations with some of the world’s brightest stars since its conception almost a decade ago.

Much has changed since we were first introduced to Roberson in 1997.

Former Destiny’s Child Star Joins ‘R&B Divas: Atlanta’ As Nicci Gilbert Exits

Things have certainly been looking up for former Destiny’s Child starlet Latavia Roberson.  After kicking the year off with news of a reality show and book, now reports have surfaced indicating the songstress is the latest addition to TV One’s top-rated ‘R&B Divas: Atlanta’.

Joining fellow newcomer Meelah of 702, Roberson will fill out the season 3 cast of the show alongside Syleena Johnson, Keke Wyatt, Monifah, and Angie Stone.  But, two faces fans shouldn’t expect to see aboard the next season are those of Nicci Gilbert‘s and Xscape singer Latocha Scott.

Via our friends at S2Smagazine:

“…[Gilbert’s] not totally done with “R&B Divas.” She pointed out, “I’m still getting a check as a producer, so please, tune into R&B Divas!”
According to TheJasmineBrand.com, Nicci is working on a spin-off for next year!”

Must See: Destiny’s Child Stars Reunite

For all the parallells to The Surpremes, the story of Destiny’s Child seems to boast a “happy ending”.

Case, point, these snaps of former members LeToya Luckett, LaTavia Roberson, and Michelle Williams from last night.

As many will remember, Luckett and Roberson served as original members of the iconic group until a management spat saw them forcibly removed in 2000. Williams and short-term member Farrah Franklin would go on to become their replacements – controversially making their debut in the ‘Say My Name’ video.

However, accompanied by Cosby Show actress Keisha Knight-Pullium, the trio were all smiles as they caught up – and in LaTavia and Michelle’s case, met for the first time.

Taking to Twitter, LaTavia wrote:

1 of the most amazing nights ever! Love @RealMichelleW

Tonight was amazing! Me, @LeToyaLuckett,@RealMichelleW, & @peachespulliam!!!

Peep more DC love after the jump…
