Wow! That’s what I thought when I watched this video clip of former En Vogue member, Dawn Robinson. Dawn, as I had heard years ago, has fallen on financial hard times and is apparently sleeping on the floor of a rodent infested apartment- with her husband. Now, we have all heard this story before, singer hits it big, loses it all, blah, blah, blah. However, the fact that Dawn is living this way while married shocks me. Her husband, Dre something-or-the-other, is also an up and coming singer and one that apparently cannot take care of his wife. But I’m getting a little head of myself here. I’ll come back to Dre later. This clip I speak of, which you can see on the next page, is actually from what I was told is a reality show that the couple is shooting about their attempts to break back into the music business.
The show, which is titled Dawn & Dre, actually looks like it could be worth watching. Unlike other reality shows which are nothing but promotional vehicles for celebrities, this one looks more like a PSA- a warning of sorts as to what the music industry is really like behind the glitz and the glamour.
Now on to Dawn’s husband. I am all for love and that mess, but he seems to do a lot of complaining in the clip below about what his wife doesn’t have and what he thinks she should have based on her history with En Vogue. However, he is now her husband and yes he should be taking care of his husbandly duties and you better believe that means keeping roaches and rats from crawling on her face as he says they do in this clip. Yes it is sad what has happened to Dawn but the past is the past. I’m not going to be too hard on the brotha though cause he is seen in the hospital during this clip so maybe there is something wrong with him. Whatever the case, Dawn & Dre aren’t doing too well and the clip below is almost heart breaking.
