Latavia Roberson Says ‘It Wasn’t Pretty’ When She Was Dropped from Destiny’s Child: ‘It Led Me Into a Depression’

28 December 2016 9:25 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Latavia Roberson may have been kicked out of Destiny’s Child — but she’s still a “Survivor.”

“There are a lot of things that I’ve gone through — molestation, dealing with alcoholism and drugs,” Roberson tells People exclusively of the subjects she’ll broach in her upcoming memoir, I Am Latavia, due in the spring of 2017.

And there’s of course one topic she won’t be shying away from: her nasty departure from one of the biggest girl groups of all time in 1999.

Roberson was an original member of Destiny’s Child, along with Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and LeToya Luckett. »

19 December 2016 11:59 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Fifth Harmony will neither be the first nor the last girl group to have a member leave in the height of popularity. The pop group announced Sunday that Camila Cabello had decided to leave the group, but the rest of the band would continue on its tour. In hindsight, signs of Camila's departure had been made clear for a while, but Harmonizers didn't expect her to leave mid-tour; however, other girl groups such as Destiny's Child, Spice Girls and more have experienced the same type of sudden exit. Over the course of the band's career, Destiny's Child lost three members: Farrah Franklin, LeToya Luckett and Latavia Roberson. Franklin joined the Beyoncé-led group after Luckett and Roberson »

Rosewood Season 2 Episode 5 Review: Spirochete and Santeria

27 October 2016 9:08 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

So what do you do when someone tells you they know the exact time of their death?

That was the situation that perplexed Rosie and Villa on Rosewood Season 2 Episode 5.

I need you to do an autopsy for me...on me. In 24hrs I'm going to be dead. Just take the money and solve my murder.

Doug Permalink: I need you to do an autopsy for me...on me. In 24hrs I'm going to be dead. Just take the... Added: October 27, 2016

Upon first meeting Doug Russell, it was easy to assume the man was completely out of his mind. How can a guy just randomly show up to Magic City Lab, drop off a load of cash to prepay his autopsy, and tell Rosie someone would kill him soon?

The whole thing even had Rosie and Villa confused.

Exorcist Stars, Ep Warn 'Evil Is Acting Out in the Real World' — Watch Video

15 September 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Don’t let Geena Davis’ warm smile and gentle tone in this exclusive Exorcist first look video fool you: Fox’s upcoming adaptation of the classic horror movie is pee-yer-pants, sleep-with-the-light-on scary.

As the Oscar winner explains in the clip, her new series exists in the same universe as William Peter Blatty’s novel and the subsequent film adaptation, a place “where there is a chance that evil and the devil and demons exist and are bubbling under the surface and ready to jump up and take over people who are vulnerable to it.”

The Exorcist Review: What the Hell? Maybe the Devil Made Them Do It?

12 September 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There’s a moment in the pilot for The Exorcist that is so spine-tingling and cool that it actually gave me goosebumps. Unfortunately, the reason the moment is so creeptastically effective has nothing to do with this show — it’s at the end of the hour when “Tubular Bells” from the 1973 movie gets cued up.

Dionne Warwick Insists Lady Gaga Will Be in Her Biopic (Exclusive)

13 May 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At a Cannes party on Friday night, Dionne Warwick spoke to Variety about the shocking casting reversal involving Lady Gaga on the biopic “Warwick.”

Earlier in the day, Warwick held a press conference in Cannes, where she revealed that a movie about her life was set to begin production in the fall. She announced that LeToya Luckett (one of the original members of Destiny’s Child) would play her, and that Lady Gaga had been cast as her “arch-nemesis,” the late British singer Cilla Black.

The project made international headlines. But only a few hours later, Gaga’s representatives issued a strong rebuttal to the casting news, which had been distributed via a press release from Rogers and Cowan. “Lady Gaga is not attached and will not appear in the project,” her publicist said in a statement. “Reports of Gaga starring in the project are false.”
