SWV Talk Depression, Financial Drama, & Bad Managers On ‘Bethenny’

Published: Tuesday 4th Feb 2014 by Sam

The ladies of SWV are enjoying a renewed turn in the spotlight thanks to the success of their aptly titled WE tv series ‘SWV: Reunited’.

However, as is unravelling on the show and their interviews to promote it, the trio’s years away from music weren’t all filled smiles and laughter. Neither, so it seems, was the tail end of their initial run.

During a recent visit to the Bethenny show, Coko, Taj, and LeLee revealed that the fall out from their disbanding saw them depressed, finance starved, and emotionally lost.

Watch a revitalized SWV tell their story below…

On a lighter note:

It’s great to have the ladies back on the scene. Their 2011 album ‘I Missed Us’, while under-promoted, was stellar.

So here’s hoping the success of their show grants them a platform make a mark on music all over again.

    How long before one of BabyMamaAra’s stans come in here and say who?

  3. MUSICHEAD February 4, 2014

    I love SWV. I really like their reality show too. If they had a bigger budget, their last album would have gone Gold. It was really good.

    Better Than I, Love Unconditionally and I Missed Us were standout songs on that album.

    @KerimelKisses why are you worrying about a ciara stan when you should be worrying about your fave out there at 5points selling rib plates out the trunk of her car… Outta here

    I love their show. Coko is such a b****, LeeLee is a freak and Taj is a crybaby. I wonder how their new music sounds…

    They are one of my favorite groups and Im glad they are trying to make a comeback, but Coko does act a b**** sometimes.

    Sam Katy Perry became the first person to reach 50 million followers on Twitter

    So we’re celebrating Twitter followers now? Lmao…that’s why the industry is in shambles now. Anyway,I’m glad to see SWV is back. They were one of my fave groups back in the day. I still listen to “New Beginnings” and their Christmas album during the holidays. They were and are still some sangin sistas. I can see why Coko hasn’t seen any success as a solo artist…. she’s a diva b-tch.

  18. Music Stan ( ya’ll know who I stan for) February 4, 2014

    Sam and the rest of ThatGrapeJuice.net you are very petty, I’d post a comment about something Postive that Rihanna did that I have saw from another blog to help you post it and get views and you deleted it…. Wow so I guess you love the Stan wars vs Postive post… Shame on You

  19. Brandy Starr February 4, 2014

    @Jamie Do your research before you say dumb stuff like that.

  20. Lolz February 4, 2014

    Death @ Jamie. This is what happens when you’re so quick to jump on the Hives c***. You end up looking like an idiot. The receipts are out there if you want. Don’t act like you havn’t seen. Platinum is a certification of shipments somewhere you fool. She has SOLD like 1.6/7 mill.

    I love the sisters! They are one of my all-time fav female groups. I agree, Their last cd ‘I Missed Us’ was so under appreciated. It really was a good cd. I like their show too. I luv Lelee. She is so frank and funny. She really could be a stand-up comic if the reunion doesn’t work out.

  22. FAF February 4, 2014

    Their show is great they are soooooo funny

  23. keke February 4, 2014

I lovedddddd their new album I missed us – what a stellar album like every song is bangin!!!!! very underrated but glad they are back and I’m glad they finally came out with the truth about the split… greed honey can kill a group!!!!! they are in their 40s and look great!!! cokos a diva who gives a f*** she’s earnt her status so to all the haters just stop cos like Coko said “shell make yo mans d*** hard wit the way I sing”!!!!!!! wat wat wat wat!!!!!

    I saw this interview yesterday & it was quite interesting…and entertaining at the same time. SWV Reunited is one of my favorite shows on right now. I really hope there is a second season. 6 episodes? That’s not enough. I wish people would stop giving Coko such a hard time on her personality. I don’t think she has an attitude problem at all. It’s just her personality is not like LeLee or Taj’s. Taj is hilarious, LeLee keeps it real & Coko is more reserve.
