who saw it??
 
 
about the Supreme who died at 32 in poverty because Diana ross became lead and Motown didnt pay her for royalties...........also alcoholism and a blood clot i think.
 
 
its so sad, in movie Dream Girls, Jenifer Hudson plays role similar to Flo...

might re-air
 
 
its sad though, i heard Flo's daughters are living in the projects and money Diana gave to them as trusts...10,000 dollars, when they got of age, it was gone. i think their family stole it and they had nothing....i sure hope diana is doing more for them...rumor is she is helping them w/ health insurance....etc...
 
 
Diana Ross irks me, she may be making up for it now, but she irks me...
 
Flo's story is so interesting and tragic

I forgot to watch it, but I wanted to. I know the Dreamgirls play and movie were loosely based on the Supremes. I had no idea Flo (effie) died though. She died so youngCry

the play wasnt i think, smokie robinson said play was about girl coming to find stardom while movie was about supremes w/ singing group in detroit..
 
Smokie is mad about dreamgirls movie...about how jamie fox portrayed berry gordy...and about Flo.
 
Flo was gorgeous! i think i am biased though lol....
 
hope they show it again because u dont hear about her much. and JHUD dedicated her award to Flo.
 
Diana and Mary wilson need to patch things up though
