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!”

The news follows reports that both editions of ‘R&B Divas’ (Atlanta and Los Angeles) have been renewed for new episodes.

Hot Topic: Would You Welcome A Destiny’s Child Reunion?

Destinys Child1 Hot Topic: Would You Welcome A Destinys Child Reunion?

Yesterday saw ‘From Above‘ mastermind Mathew Knowles wow fans with news of a ‘Destiny’s Child’ reunion.

Announcing the release of two re-packaged LPs by the trio this November, his news sparked questions surrounding the trio’s status as an ‘actual group‘, considering their successes as respective solo artists.

Solo artists, who have risen to become just as groundbreaking as the group they once soared in collectively.

So now we ask rhetorically…

Would You Welcome A Destiny’s Child Reunion?

Must See: Destiny’s Child Stars Reunite

destinys chid 2012 e1336467660388 Must See: Destinys 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…

Destiny’s Child’s LaTavia Tells All: The Full Interview (A Must-Hear!)

latavia 34a e1334149213407 Destinys Childs LaTavia Tells All: The Full Interview (A Must Hear!)

As earlier reported, ex-Destiny’s Child singer LaTavia Roberson is breaking her silence.

It’s been 12 years since Roberson and LeToya Luckett were sensationally ousted from the Multi-Platinum outfit. And it’s been just as long since she’s publicly talked about the situation – in detail.

That all changed when the 30 year old spoke to our friends over at Kempire Radio.

The candid chat saw no topic off-limits. Indeed, addressed were her true thoughts on the band’s former manager Mathew Knowles, her current relationship with Beyonce, her personal demons, what she’s been up to since the break-up, and much much more.

Not just an insightful listen. It’s an essential listen!

Once band-members, then legal foes, Kelly Rowland and LaTavia Roberson have quite the the seasoned backstory.

However, as the age-old adage goes, time heals heals even deepest of wounds. Something Robertson’s recent comments about her former Destiny’s Child cohort highlights.

The 29 year old also had quite ‘interesting’ comments about the group’s former manager, Beyonce‘s father Mathew Knowles.

Sunday School: Destiny’s Child Drama

To our surprise here at That Grape Juice, much ado was made about former Destiny’s Child star Latavia Roberson‘s recent re-surfacing. Indeed, a select few have taken aim with her for sharing of the true depths of her story some 11 years after being booted from the group.

With so much He Say/She Say still swirling, yours truly believes it apt to present perhaps the most fair, balanced and well-rounded account of what really went down. Hence, substituting our From The Vault clip this week, will be E!’s 2006 short documentary ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’ – which sees first-hand accounts from Latavia, LeToya, and even Farrah Franklin, about their stints in Destiny’s Child. The piece also features sound-bites from Mathew Knowles and other industry figures on the drama that just won’t go away.

Let Sunday School commence…
