1. Who Are The Hollywood Divas?
From the looks of the trailer, the premiere of Todd Tucker’s (yes Kandi Burruss’ husband) newest production “Hollywood Divas” should make for some awesomely dramatic television.

“Hollywood Divas” follows actresses Elise Neal, Golden Brooks, Paula Jai Parker, Countess Vaughn and Lisa Wu as they navigate through the LA scene. But who are these ladies? What makes them a Hollywood Diva?
