Have you thought to consider that perhaps Ms. Wilson doesn't want to be out there touring with Jean, Scherrie or Lynda. Maybe she's happy on her own, with her own band and her own back up singers.

She's getting great reviews for her Lena Horne project and seems to have moved on from all the bitterness with Diane Ross and the lawsuits with Motown. Ms. Wilson is touring here in the states and overseas and seems to be doing very well. The lady is 68 and has earned the right to do whatever she pleases.
There are some Supremes fans that seem unable to let go off the past. They fight over Return to love, pick apart every Mary and Diane interview and blindly praise one lady while viciously trashing the other lady. It's negative, childish and silly, especially when Diane and Mary have moved on and seem to be at peace with everything.
No disrespect to Jean Terrell, Lynda Laurence or Scherrie Payne, but your comment about giving the people what they want is more than a tad exaggerated. Outside of us diehard Motown fans I think most of the general public couldn't name any of them if you dangled a photo of Jean, Lynda and Scherrie in their faces. And I mean no disrespect to either of these lovely ladies.
