R&B Divas: Atlanta Season 3 Episode 8: "Divas Make it Rain” Celebrity Blogger: Diva Manager/Boyfriend Ashanti Manager/Boyfriend Ashanti shares fatherly advice and sounds off about his relationship with Diva Angie Stone, attending the DIVA wedding of the year and how he REALLY feels about marriage! I’ve only been on a few episodes of R&B Divas so nobody is really checking for me! I have had a couple of stares- like people definitely look twice but nobody has approached me on the street.Angie and I recently participated on “Celebrity Wife Swap” and people recognize me from that.Stone has earned numerous accolades, including two Brit Awards and one Grammy Award out of five nominations.She also made her film acting debut in 2006 with the fantasy adventure film Eragon, and made her television debut portraying Anne of Cleves in the Showtime series The Tudors in 2009.You are going to have conflict with a bunch of women with strong personalities in one room! It’s OK for the ladies to disagree but more importantly, to show that women can work together on one accord towards a common goal.The show is a great concept; I have no issues with it at all!
Syleena and Angie had an agreement but once the managers (me for Angie and Syleecia for Syleena) got involved, it didn’t make financial sense.To me, Angie Stone and D’Angelo were the Jay Z and Beyoncé of their day – a golden couple of the 90s Rn B and hip hop scene.Angie was the older, no-mess music industry vet, having begun her career back in the 70s aged 16 as part of female rap trio The Sequence.Sadly it wasn’t to be for the couple, who split after four years together. When I came it was raining but I brought the sunshine. There’s been a lot of 90s nostalgia in terms of fashion and music recently. Mary J Blige, Faith Evans, Vertical Hold (the trio Angie belonged to 1993-1995), Groove Theory, D’Angelo – he broke the mould and changed the game – and Lauren Hill.Now Angie has released a new album, Covered In Soul, and the vocals are as warm as they ever were, much like the lady herself. If you could duet with anyone who would it be with?
