Open Post: Hosted By Naturi Naughton Revealing That 3LW Used A Fake House For “MTV Cribs”

October 20, 2021 / Posted by:

Prepare to be shocked! But MTV, the channel that brought us a show literally called The Real World, LIED TO US! Naturi Naughton, formerly of the girl group 3LW, revealed in an interview with The Breakfast Club that she and her groupmates, Adrienne Bailon and Kiely Williams, pretended to own a big house for the MTV series Cribs when in reality she didn’t even own a car. A famous person pretending to be richer than they are to maintain appearances?! Well, I never!

Naturi was in 3LW from 1999 to 2002 and seemed to have kind of a shitty time, alleging that she was driven out of the group and had altercations with groupmates, including the time that Kiely threw fried chicken at her. Adrienne even apologized to her on The Real back in 2017. And yet she hasn’t apologized for not washing her hands after using the bathroom… Anyway, Naturi moved on to acting and is currently on Starz’s Power Book II: Ghost, as well as the new ABC series, Queens, about a popular 90s hip-hop girl group who reunites in their 40s. Naturi plays Jill “Da Thrill” and stars alongside 90s R&B legends, Brandy and Eve, as well as actress Nadine Velasquez.

While doing promo for Queens on The Breakfast Club, Naturi talked about how it gave her flashbacks to her 3LW past, via Essence:

There were moments when I watch, where I’m in the scene and I’m like, “Yo this really happened to me.” That Cribs episode? I lived it! I was doing a fake Cribs. I’m telling everybody now on The Breakfast Club… MTV did the Cribs, and you know, back when 3LW was hot, we had to pretend. But I didn’t have a car, I didn’t have a house, I didn’t have any of those things. But we did MTV Cribs. And then we wind up doing an episode very similar to that, without giving too much away, where you see how fake we have to project this image. I literally did that and had to clean the house by 7 o’clock to give it back to the owner. And get out of it!”

The star clarified that the girls didn’t literally clean the rented home from top to bottom, but they did have to collect their things and get out of it by a certain time. “We had to clean up all of our stuff, get a cleaning person,” she added. “It wasn’t that bad, but things were bad.”

Here’s the full BC interview:

I’m glad Naturi added “it wasn’t that bad” because pretending to own a big house on a hugely popular television program is better than, you know, just being a houseless person. Here’s 3LW’s absolute fakery on Cribs:

Can you believe the lies? Dakota Johnson couldn’t sell me a fib this well! MTV are scammers and need to be exposed. This is fake, The Hills was bullshit; next, you’ll tell me that MTV’s The Challenge isn’t a test of physical skill and wit the level of which Olympic athletes can only aspire!
