Kelly Price vs. The World
Before the other woman got into their beef with Kelly Price, Wendy asked Kelly whether or not her work as a background singer for Mariah Carey ended respectfully. Kelly chose her words wisely, saying it ended with her explaining to Mariah that she wanted to pursue her career as a songwriter and possibly an artist and Mariah “wasn’t ready to let me go.” Then Wendy asked her about that subtweet she sent out months ago, talking about singers who lost their way and their voice in the midst of a gimmick. Kelly didn’t deny she was talking about Mariah, only she made clear to avoid naming her specifically. I love Mariah Carey, but she is a shade samurai herself. Plus, y’all know she doesn’t hit those dolphin notes the way she used to.
Anyway, Kelly named all of the people she’s written for -- including Chanté Moore. Chanté couldn’t recall, saying with a puzzled face, “What song was that?” It was song called “I’m Watching You” during her days as a Silas records artist. I couldn’t find it, so you know, pass along if you find it. Wendy then asked whether or not Kelly ever saw Kenny in an intimate embrace with a man. Oh Wendy.
As for her beefs with Chanté Moore and Lil’ Mo, it was more of the same with Kelly denying any wrongdoing as she frustrated the hell out of the people who felt wronged by her. The most interesting part of the exchange was Chanté essentially breaking character by revealing that show producers had the real idea for the monologue, only they would present it on the show as the brainchild of Kelly Price. Kelly denied this, saying she had conversations about the monologue prior to production beginning. Lil’ Mo echoed Chanté’s sentiment, which made this even more surreal. Kelly stuck to her story, though, claiming that with respect to her acting up, production told each of the cast members to “turn it up or this gets shut down.” We were witnessing reality show cast members openly discussing how staged some of the show has been on camera.
