NEW YORK – Though she famously sang about wanting "No More Drama" in her own life, Mary J. Blige is about to be transplanted into a world of crime, scheming, back-stabbing and scandal. She's taping an appearance on ABC's "One Life to Live."
The 35-year-old R&B diva, whose latest album, "The Breakthrough," has sold more than two million copies, will perform two hits from that disc at the club Capricorn in the town of Llanview. The episode is set to air July 28.
"The cast and I, being huge fans of Mary J. Blige's tremendous talent, are thrilled that she will be appearing on `OLTL,'" said executive producer Frank Valenti in a recent statement.
Erykah Badu and Chris Botti have also performed on the show.
