Now Taking Dates for DJ Spinderella !
Roper replaced DJ Latoya Hanson as Spinderella after Hanson missed several rehearsals and group appearances. The group's producer, Herbie "LuvBug" Azor, held auditions to find a new DJ.. Then unknown radio and TV personality Wendy Williams was one of the women auditioning for the DJ role. Roper was selected as the group's DJ, taking the name Spinderella, around the time the group's first album was being released. Since she was sixteen at the time of joining, the group needed her parent's permission for Roper to travel around the country; which her parents gave. The trio would go on to become the most successful selling female hip-hop act, and one of the most successful hip-hop groups, male or female. They released five studio albums and saw several platinum and gold singles. Spinderella has also produced several songs on the group's albums. The group disbanded in 2002.
Spinderella worked as a radio personality on the now-defunct KKBT 100.3 in Los Angeles, California, cohosting "The BackSpin", a nationally syndicated weekly radio show featuring old school hip-hop. She also appeared on several episodes of the VH1 reality series The Salt N Pepa Show. Roper now works in Dallas, TX for Radio-One Inc. - KSOC 94.5 K-Soul.
She appeared briefly on VH1's first annual Hip Hop Honors in November 2004, with her group members, but they did not perform. All three members did perform on the second Hip Hop Honors on September 22, 2005. This was their first performance as Salt-N-Pepa since 1999. In 2007, she acted as DJ for The Comedy Central Roast of Flavor Flav. On October 23, 2008, the group performed their hit singles "Shoop", "Push It", and "Whatta Man" at the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards.
