TLC’s Chilli Needs A Boyfriend
You may remember Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas from her days as one-third of the Grammy Award-winning group TLC. We haven’t heard much from Chilli since the group fizzled after the death of member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Now we’ve caught wind of a VH1 casting call for “Atlanta’s hottest men to compete for a chance at romancing Chilli.” Seriously, is the dating scene in Atlanta that pitiful that Chilli has to humiliate herself on reality TV? More after the jump.I watched Chilli try her hand at reality TV with “R U the Girl,” another competition show where the grand prize was a chance to record a song and perform in concert with the surviving group members of TLC. And the fact of the matter is Chilli just isn’t that interesting. Sure, she had a much-publicized romance with Usher, making her the envy of millions of women (myself not included), but I doubt anyone cares who Chilli dates now. Plus, this would forever put her on a par with the likes of Flavor Flav, Tiffany “New York” Pollard, Bret Michaels, and all the skeevy, fame whores that compete for “love” on VH1. I suspect that Chilli is delving into reality TV again in order to promote her much-delayed solo album, but, newsflash, no one is eagerly awaiting it. I say, save your dignity, Chilli.
