Syleena Johnson Shares Her 'R&B DIvas' Regrets


Syleena Johnson has made a successful career of telling her truth. The singer/songwriter has poured her heart into six albums, five of which are aptly titled as “chapters” to an ongoing story of love and life. Elsewhere, you can find her telling it like it is as a cast member of TV One’s hit reality show R&B Divas. The show reveals many sides of Johnson: artist, businesswoman, wife, mother and daughter.

Nothing has garnered more attention for R&B Divas, however, than the ongoing conflict between Johnson and her sister in song Nicci Gilbert. In last week’s season two finale, the feud with Gilbert reached a boiling point in an argument where Johnson explained to Gilbert that, “There’s a special place in hell for a b***h like you.”

The R&B Divas reunion airs tonight at 10 p.m. EST/9 p.m, CST. But to get a peek into what Johnson might say, Madame Noire caught up with her recently to discuss what she thinks are the real issues behind her feud with Gilbert, her remorse over how she handled herself on television and, get this, what she’s learned about conflict resolution from the experience.
