5. Lil’ Mo vs. Kelly PriceLil’ Mo has some history with Kelly Price before the two joined this show, so one can assume that Mo was hoping to mend faces when she asked Kelly to meet to figure out why she isn’t responding to her texts and calls. But instead of talking to Mo directly, Kelly proceeded to yell out her husband’s full name and have the conversation she should’ve been having with Mo with him instead. Kelly didn’t show even the slightest bit of emotion when Mo – whom she had some kind of relationship with before the show – cried tears about her children having to stay at the airport for 12 hours so she could rehearse for a play that Price ultimately quit.
What kind of a person would do this? A horrible person who wants to scapegoat her antics by faulting the folks sitting in the editing bay, eating Chinese food and thanking the universe they’re not the person about to be roasted on social media the second this scene airs. Kelly Price has a chip on her shoulder and Mo was right to say when you’re 40, you’re supposed to be in the prime of your life versus operating from the stance that everyone is against you. Or in Kelly’s case as a reality series story arc, the idea that Chanté Moore is against you.
It has become painfully obvious that prior to R&B Divas: L.A., no one ever called Kelly Price out on her behavior. Or at the very least, it’s been quite some time since someone said, “Kelly, you sound like you ought to be singing into a straight jacket or an anger management counselor.” Either way, it’s too late now. The damage to her public image is done now.
I keep repeating this because it bears repeating: Lil' Mo won this show. Meanwhile, at this point I wouldn't buy a Kelly Price album out of Beyoncé's hand.
