The Real 'Got 2B Real': Patti LaBelle Says She's Making A Film About 'People Who Dissed' Her

Got 2B Real fans rejoice! Patti LaBelle is going to make a movie all about the people who messed over her in the industry.

LaBelle told The Breakfast Club this news when she commented on how some stars ignored her in her career. “You’ll see soon,” she said. “…I’m making a movie of people who dissed me.” She said the movie will be called “‘Patti’s Sad Days.'” She also said she would give specific names of those who dissed her.

She also revealed that one of the “biggest girls” in music today rejected her two years ago, saying, “I said ‘hi’ walking in the hallway. We were doing a BET special. That heifer looked at me and walked away.” She assured The Breakfast Club that it wasn’t Lizzo, Rihanna or Beyoncé, whom she called her “babies.”

If the film ever materializes, it should make fans of the viral YouTube hit Got 2B Real excited. The series, created by YouTuber Patti LaHelle, was a fictional “reality show” that showcased several of music’s biggest divas, including LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Rihanna and Diana Ross, and their frenemy-esque relationship.

While that series spilled fictional tea, LaBelle’s movie would give us the real story, compelling fans to compare notes between reality and the stories told within Got 2B Real.
