TLC member Chilli has been searching for her true love for quite some time, even going as far as to appear on her own Vh1 dating show, "What Chilli Wants," but it seems she may have finally found her match.
According to several reports, Chilli has been quietly dating super producer and singer Ne-Yo.
Hit the above slide to view photos of Chilli and Ne-Yo.TLC’s hits, of course, proved timeless, reminding me that their music served as a soundtrack for most of my adolescent and young adult life.Middle school Edd thought the condoms wedged in their shades in their first videos were plastic egg yokes. I listened as they “Creeped” through the halls of my high school and had entitled (but broke) chicks screaming slurs against “Scrubs” on my college campus.And my future wife and I even bonded over their final album, which wasn’t nearly the disaster many folks claim.I thought I was pretty well-versed in TLC’s tumultuous history but I came away with new appreciation for the group after the credits rolled – and ads for the hideous Love & Hip Hop infested my screen. The mysterious Crystal was the original “C” in TLC before getting dumped for Chilli.
And it was a wise move, considering that the movie portrayed her as having the vocal prowess of Rihanna eating a sandpaper sandwich.
Seriously, there is no way she could have sounded THAT bad in real life. I have no idea but seeing that the movie portrayed her has a low-rent Beyonce I assume she was locked in the Knowles attic, never to be seen again. Anyway, TLC’s manager Pebbles has never been painted in the most positive of light but good lord, this movie made her a wig-wearing Gargamel.
While the music was undeniable, the performances of the main actors were surprisingly stellar too.
Keke Palmer and Drew Sidora shined in their roles as Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, respectively.
But the real star was Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes, played by Lil Mama or Lil Bow Wow or whoever that was.
Regardless, s/he OWNED that role, embodying both the fury and feistiness that made her one of the biggest stars of the 90s.
