One founding member of En Vogue is a little salty about Lifetime leaving her out of its upcoming movie about the group.
Dawn Robinson is kind of being a Grinch when it comes to “An En Vogue Christmas.” TMZ.com reports that she’s prepared to sue the network if it airs the film this weekend as planned.
Her main gripe is that Lifetime hasn’t included her character in the film. 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 to pursue a solo career that did not pan out quite like she’d expected.
If Lifetime ignores her threats–which it probably will–then Dawn is determined to do a little preemptive dragging of the entire production. However it’s not like any of her criticisms will be based on the actual movie because she is boycotting it!
“I have no interest in watching it. It looks horrible. I’m sad for them,” adding, “After seeing the Aaliyah biopic, I’m extremely worried that this is going to be a train wreck.
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.
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 move fair! If you feel like watching, it’s set to air November 22 at 8 p.m.
