Naturi Naughton Recalls The Time 3LW Showcased A Fake Home For 'MTV Cribs'

Before Naturi Naughton captured audiences as Tasha in Power and even before she played Lil Kim in the Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious, the actress was in the girl group 3LW. The group 3LW, which stood for 3 Little Women, composed of Naturi, The Real's Adrienne Bailon and BET Presents: The Encore's Kiely Williams, and they had many hits including "No More (Baby I'ma Do Right)" and "I Do (Wanna Get Close To You)."

While they appeared to be successful on the surface, everything isn't quite what it seems. Naturi recently appeared on The Breakfast Club to discuss her new show Queens, which she co-stars with Brandy, Eve and Nadine Velazquez, and made a surprising revelation about her time in the girl group.

The singer recalled the similarities between filming Queens and her real-life experience in 3LW, including an MTV Cribs episode. She revealed.

"That 'Cribs' episode, I lived it, I was doing a fake 'Cribs,' and I'm telling everybody now on 'The Breakfast Club.' MTV did the 'Cribs,' and you know like 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."

She continued:

"We did 'MTV Cribs' and then we wound up doing an episode [on 'Queens'] that's similar to 'Cribs' without giving too much away, when you see how fake we have to project this image and I literally did that and then have to clean the house by 7 o'clock to give back to the owner."

The MTV Cribs episode showed that the group lived in a 3,000 sq ft., 3-bedroom and 2 ½ bathroom house in Malibu, California. In the episode, they also revealed they were living with their road manager since the girls were underage at that time.

Neither Adrienne nor Kiely have responded to Naturi's comments.

The new ABC show Queens is about a '90s girl group who reunite in their 40's after being out-of-touch with the music industry and each other. The drama debuted on Tuesday, October 19, 10/9c
