Nicci Gilbert Says She's Not Fired

Rumors have been rampant the Nicci Gilbert had not been asked back for another season of R&B Divas but Nicci says not so fast...

Nicci tells Sire Says
“I’m going to say this: It seems like to me, all the ‘characters’ that viewers can’t relate to or don’t like tend to be the ones that keep people watching. So if I was a network, and I had a NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore or whatever [I wouldn’t fire them]. So people need to think a little more, I’m not trying to be insulting, but as long as you’re invoking some kind of emotion from somebody, they’re not going to throw you out.
“I think it’s funny. I don’t take it seriously until TV One comes to me and says “Hey Nicci…” And the way it works in this industry is they wouldn’t come to me, they would go to my lawyer and my lawyer would be contacting me saying, ‘Hey look, you know…’ And that hasn’t happened.”
