In the trailer for her new reality series Leave It To LeToya LeToya Luckett laughs I’m really here telling myself everything I do. Well, maybe not all of it, but a lot. The singer, actress, and former original Destiny’s Child member opens up about her life in her new Kin-produced series streaming on YouTube, Facebook Watch, and Instagram.
She told CNN that she is happy to share her life with the public.
I feel like everyone is in everyone’s business anyway he said. You might as well tell your story your way. That includes talking about her career, which included winning two Grammy Awards with Destiny’s Child, a platinum solo album and an acting career that will soon include a role in the Starz series Power Book III: Raising Kanan.
Navigating her personal life on the show is a little more complicated for the divorced single mother, as she wants to protect her children and be respectful of her ex-husband, while honoring her journey.
I want, especially single moms or just women, period, to know, ‘Hey, you can be an entrepreneur, you can be a mom, you can get a divorce.’ You can make all these real-life things happen and move on he said. As for the ending of her marriage to businessman Tommicus Walker last year and the aftermath, Luckett said it has been “difficult.
It’s hard because, you know, there was so much that you had, so many plans that you made in your head, right he said. “It was one of my biggest dreams come true that I had for my life, the way I looked at my life with kids and marriage and all these different things. And when it doesn’t work out and there are kids involved, it can be hard.
She is well past another prominent breakup in her life. Luckett and her partner LaTavia Roberson had a contentious split with Destiny’s Child and their then-manager, Beyoncé’s father Mathew Knowles, in 2000. But Luckett now says that more than 20 years later, she doesn’t mind the continued fascination of having been a part of the famous all-female singing group. That was a great moment in my life,” he said. “People still love music, so if people stop asking, I guess that means we’re forgotten.
