The release of Williams and Hervey's Essence magazine issue comes just a few days after the two attended the VH1 Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night event in Brooklyn. "If people call me a diva, I say, 'I got if from my mama,'" Hervey, 27, said upon introducing her mother, who performed her 1992 hit, "Save the Best for Last."
