R&B Divas LA
The season finale of the reality show "R&B Divas LA" featured a monologue show held at a concert hall in Los Angeles, starring singers Chante Moore, Michel'le, Lil Mo and Claudette Ortiz. The ladies did a very good job in telling their stories and singing compelling songs.
Noticeably absent from the monologue was singers Kelly Price and Dawn Robinson of En Vogue. Price caused a significant amount of friction on the show, after she repeatedly stood up the ladies at rehearsals and social events, such as a charity where she was the guest of honor.

Price was upset that after waiting around for her, the other four ladies took the initiative and hired their own director and production staff to start the monologue, whilst still working her into the show. Price left and did her own monologue with Robinson, which did not have good production values. The content was good, but the production needed work.

This is often a problem in girl groups. Someone always wants to be the center of attention, rather than working as a group and it causes massive problems and splits. In a group setting egos must be checked at the door or things will not work. Even as a solo artist, showing up with one's ego turned all the way up leaves a negative impression.
