One founding member of En Vogue is a little salty about Lifetime leaving her out of its upcoming movie about the group, “An En Vogue Christmas.” Dawn Robinson is threatening to sue if Lifetime airs the movie about En Vogue because Lifetime hasn’t included her character in the film, TMZ reports.
She might have a valid complaint if she hadn’t given up all of her rights to the group and its name when she left En Vogue back in 1997. The group has been on a rotation of members ever since her exit.
“I have no interest in watching it. It looks horrible. I’m sad for them,” Dawn told TMZ, throwing in a little extra shade for network’s most recent production. “After seeing the Aaliyah biopic, I’m extremely worried that this is going to be a train wreck.” To be fair, the Aaliyah biopic was a disaster.
So let’s get this straight: Dawn is mad she’s not in the movie (that she won’t be watching), but she thinks its going to be trash either way? That makes no sense at all. Beside only two members of the original Funky Divas are even in “An En Vogue Christmas,” so at least one of her other former band mates isn’t in the movie, either. Oh and if you’ve got a bottomless pit of a mind on random music knowledge, you might recall En Vogue had another public feud last summer when Dawn took to Twitter to announce that she and Maxine were doing an En Vogue tour with two new girls. So…Dawn can do it, but the other members can’t?
For those that are tuning in, the movie will follow a family that gets En Vogue to put on a show that could save a local concert hall. Sounds like heart-warming, holiday movie fair! If you feel like watching, it’s set to air November 22 at 8 p.m.
Dawn actually tweeted #TeamBeautiful, setting the record straight:
We reached out for a statement from Robinson and our manicured fingers are crossed!
