Of course you do... she was in Destiny's Child.
Yes she was... you remember the song:
Kelly, can you handle this? Michelle, can you handle this? Beyonce, can you handle this? I don't think they can handle this! Um... Letoya, can you... oh.
Alright, she was one of the bags of ballast lobbed over the side to help the group rise to new heights (or, more accurately, got herself axed when she suggested that Beyonce's Dad be canned as manager), but now Letoya Luckett is back. And not - can we get this straight - bitter:
It was more just hurt.
"I knew I would never get to see them again. I couldn't call Beyonce just to talk.
"The only way of seeing them was in magazines and on TV, showing how successful they were. But I never felt like I didn't want them to be successful."
It's funny how after you get sacked for trying to unseat someone's Dad they stop returning you calls.
It's also funny how she wasn't ever bitter, but has tried to sue Beyonce twice (come to think of it, that might have made it tricky to call her up to chat about hemlines, too.)
The Sun suggests this is Letoya's second crack at fame, which is true, if you ignore her post-Destinys band Anjel. Which didn't really do anything much.
