Perri “Pebbles” Reid stopped rubbing her hands together like Birdman at the prospect of auctioning the floral arrangement she stole from Left Eye’s funeral on eBay long enough to release an official statement via her Twitter account responding to allegations made in the well received TLC biopic ‘CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.’
She didn’t go this hard when that groupie released that picture of her son passed out in bed like a whale washed up on a shore but I’m not here to put anybody’s motherly instincts on trial.
Just read her statement through your teeth like Tami Roman and draw your own opinion. I’m over everybody whose name isn’t Lil Boosie today.
This week, T-Boz and Chilli revealed to The Breakfast Club that the group had only $15,000 after selling 10 million records after former TLC manager Peri “Pebbles” Reid and L.A. Reid swindled them out of the profits from their recording contract.
Following the interview, Pebbles wasted no time threatening legal action for the way she’s being portrayed in the upcoming VH1 biopic and media.
“I’m not here to promote something I put on the map and yet have been disrespected by because of more reasons than one! Lawyers on deck,” she tweeted.
“I would say being lied on for as long and trying to continue to is sadder. But, the continued slander from all will help prove just what was done,” she continued. “Thank you love. It’s not good what they played a part of but it will be dealt with now that the slander continues.”
She added,”TLC without me? No way. I gotta go! Like I said hours ago, have a good one and let’s keep it good and classy from over here. I want to see all do well. Always have.”
Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas showed what will happen if the government decides that you are not allowed to dip into your 401K retirement plan while hitting the promo trail at ‘Good Morning America’ today.
Outfitted as ASAP Rocky and Neffe Pugh doing her best Keyshia Cole impression, the duo lip synced for their lives while performing a short medley of their classic hits. Don’t go chasing waterfalls please stick to the basic one-two step that you’re use to people.
The surviving members of TLC appeared on the program to promote their newly released greatest hits album compilation ’20′ and upcoming VH1 biopic. ‘CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story’ stars Keke Palmer, Lil Mama and Drew Sidora also crashed the set for an interview. Watch it below.
Black Twitter lit up with mostly delight and a little shade when Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of TLC took the stage at Sunday night’s VMAs to introduce Drake’s performance. When the tweet that T-Boz looked like “that sassy Black chick at the bank who tells you that you need two Forms of I.D. to cash your check” danced across my timeline I silently finished eating my fruit cup. No need to waste energy arguing with the facts.
“We never broke up,” T-Boz told People. “We’ve been doing shows overseas every year and have been busy being mommies. Chilli and I see each other all the time.”
“We’ve been through everything together. We’ve got kids, got married, experienced divorces and deaths,” said T-Boz. “And when I needed someone, she was always there for me. We will always be together.”
Chilli echoed T-Boz’s sisterly sentiments. “She’s like my sister and my best friend,” said Thomas, 42. “We have unconditional love for each other and a tight bond that nobody can break. We have the type of relationship where we tell each other everything. Sometimes too much!”
Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins of TLC were on hand to accept the award for Outstanding Contribution to Music at the 2012 MOBO awards at Echo Arena on Saturday (November 3) in Liverpool, England.
I’m resisting the urge to do the “Waterfalls” shoulder jig because it would only lead to me revisiting my childhood via Spotify, but I’m burning with desire.
T-Boz may have been relegated to the passenger side of her best friend’s ride after being sued for failing to make payments on her 2005 Honda Odyssey earlier this year, but when there are All-Star Specials from the Waffle House waiting in the wings you quickly tend to discover your own strength.
Last month it was announced that TLC has ordered for episode of ‘Totally T-Boz’, a reality show focusing on the singer’s return to music.
In somber times as the present it’s nice to know that Rich of FourFour, who has been the Nettie to my Celie since 2005, can still make me smile with my heart.
I’m a little late to this one, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t touch on my favorite person on TV this week, soul singer Millie Jackson. Her life story took up an hour of TV One’s Unsung (basically my favorite show on TV now – did you see last week’s Full Force episode?!?). And what a story it was! She got her break by shit-talking some woman that was onstage at a concert she attended. She described her marriage to a bass player like this: “He was a decent cat, but he thought we were going to be Ike and Tina, and the record company didn’t sign Ike, it only signed Tina.” She gave Roxanne Shanté these words of advice: “You’ll be successful a lot longer for the nasty things that come out of your mouth than the nasty things you put in it.” She made fun of her own music, lamented her inability to pawn gold records and showed that at age 67, she’s still quite flexible (you can see that in the video above).
