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.
