Call It A Come Back (And A Come Up)

Former En Vogue diva and Lucy Pearl babe Dawn Robinson and her husband Dre Allen are trying to join the reality television revolution. The once-successful singer and her "ghetto rockstar" husband are currently shopping their independently-produced series The Come Back & Come Up of Dawn & Dre to a few outlets, such as BET and TV One. Until their show gets picked up, you can peep the clip here:

Oh really, Dawn and Dre? Rats, flying roaches and gas station hustling, oh my! Looks like the diva ain't very funky nowadays. They may not be Bobby and Whitney (thank God!), but this reality show may actually prove to be interesting while we watch the talented duo try to make a dollar out of fifteen cents. We'll be tuning in.

  1. Ugh, Dawn is such garbage. I am so glad that En Vogue moved forward with member Rhona Bennett, someone who is there for the music & not the image.
    While Dawn is talented, this shows her style over substance approach at work. Still about her almost 15 years later, to be kicked out of two great R&B groups makes her the Shannon Doherty of R&B.

  2. I get that she wants to do the solo thing -- but obviously no one else wants her to do that.
    Otherwise she would have been picked up, by now.
    She has a great voice, very pretty lady... but seriously.. it ain't happening.
    Get back with En Vogue. Do a reunion tour, make that good tour cash, and then do the solo thing on the side. A few club dates. Build your buzz with the reunion tour.

  3. Dawn Robinson Trying To Stage A Comeback

    After enjoying a ridiculous amount of success both with En Vogue and Lucy Pearl, Dawn Robinson is now broke and trying to stage a comeback of sorts. She has been trying to do the solo thing for a minute now,...

    I AM VERY HESITANT TO POST THIS, BECAUSE 1 , I HAVE NO INTEREST IN FEEDING ANY FURTHER ENERGY INTO DAWN, DRE OR ANYTHING THEY'RE DOING , ALSO, OFTEN TIMES PEOPLE CRITICIZE AS A MEANS OF VENTING AND IT COMES OFF IN A WAY THAT IS OFTEN NEGATIVE AND THATS ALL. EVEN STILL I AM GOING TO WRITE THESE TRUTHS FOR THE PUBLIC TO READ. I RECENTLY RESPONDED TO DRE AND DAWN AS THEY EXPRESSED INTEREST IN PUTTING TOGETHER A STREET TEAM. I WAS ONE OF APPROXIMATELY 5 PEOPLE ON BOARD THEIR SO CALLED TOUR BUS. WE LITERALLY "SLAVED" DAY AND NIGHT SELLING RECORDS FOR DAWN AND DRE . THEY USED THE MONEY FOR THINGS LIKE GAS, BUS PAYMENTS ON THE RV THAT WAS LEASED TO THEM, PAINTING THE BUS, CDS, AND LET'S NOT FORGET STRIP CLUBS. THERE WAS VERY LITTLE FOOD MOST TIMES AND MANY OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED WERE FRUSTRATED BUT LOVED DAWN AND DRE BECAUSE THEY HAD BEEN LED TO BELIEVE THAT WE WERE ALL IN IT TOGETHER AND THEY WERE FIGHTING TOWARD SUCCESS AS A FAMILY. DRE AND DAWN WOULD BARELY GET OFF THE BUS TO SELL ANYTHING WHEN JUST THEIR PRESENCE ALONE CAUSED PEOPLE TO GAIN INTEREST IN BUYING. WITH LITTLE OR NO CONSIDERATION THEY SAT ON THE BUS CRACKING THE WHIP, CHASTISING ANYONE THAT DID NOT RETURN WITH AT LEAST 100 DOLLARS (SERIOUSLY). IN THE END THEY KICKED PEOPLE OFF THE RV WHO THEY FELT DID NOT SELL ENOUGH CDS FOR THEM AND LEFT THEM IN THAT VERY CITY WITH NO MONEY NOR TRANSPORTATION TO GET HOME. THE SAME PEOPLE WHO WERE LOYAL TO THEM WERE LEFT STRANDED AND HOMELESS AND TO THIS DAY ARE WORKING TO REPAIR THE DAMAGE DONE TO THEIR LIVES. THEY (AT THE RISK OF SOUNDING NEGATIVE) TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE DREAMS AND LOYALTY THAT THESE PEOPLE INVESTED INTO THEM. THEY SOLD THEM FALSE PROMISES OF A REALITY SHOW AND USED THIS CONCEPT TO GET THEM TO SIGN CONTRACTS. EVERYONE THOUGHT THEY WOULD BE MAKING A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF MONEY AND MADE NOTHING (LITERALLY). SOME OF THEM WHO MAY HAVE HAD ACCESS TO THEIR OWN FINANCES EVEN WOULD GIVE DRE MONEY SO THAT THEY COULD HAVE BASIC THINGS LIKE FOOD AND SHELTER. MEANWHILE DRE AND DAWN REFUSES TO EVEN GIVE THESE PEOPLE REFERENCE AS THEY NOW STRUGGLE TO RE-EMPLOY THEMSELVES ELSEWHERE. WITH THAT SAID, PERSONALLY I THINK "THESE TRUTHS" WOULD MAKE A GREAT REALITY SHOW. THE REST IS A RESULT OF THEIR OWN ARROGANCE AND MISGUIDED BEHAVIOR. ALL IN ALL MY IMPRESSION AT FIRST WAS THAT THEY WERE GOOD PEOPLE WITH A GOOD VISION, AND I HONESTLY THINK THAT HAD THAT BEEN THE FOCUS MUCH MORE WOULD HAVE BEEN ACCOMPLISHED, INSTEAD DRE KICKED DAWN OFF THE BUS AND GOT INVOLVED WITH HIS "NEW LOVE", A WOMAN THAT HE MET WHILE WE WERE ON THE ROAD. SO FOR ALL THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN GOING BACK AND FORTH, FOR THOSE THAT SYMPATHIZE WITH THEM AND FOR THOSE WHO HATE THEM, HERE IS A BIT OFF TRUTH AS TO PROVIDE TO THE PUBLIC A MUCH MORE WELL-ROUNDED PERSPECTIVE.
