of The Real Housewives of Atlanta appeared on The Nate Berkus show a while back to reveal a few of her “Southern Belle” secrets.
I believe this aired back in April 2012, but since I don’t watch a lot of daytime television, this totally flew under my radar until loyal reader “DeirdreP” brought it to my attention.

Til today…. 😯

After all that, T-Boz is still keeping on. And it’s good to see her laugh and smile on a recent interview with LSO Radio.
During her stint on-air, Watkins spoke publicly about VH1’s plans to do a biopic on the Atlanta-based girl group, stating:
Yes… TLC is doing a movie. They’re starting to do movies on VH1. So they’re doing icons and legends and we’re the first of the movies to be picked. Yaaaay!

I almost wanted to do it like The Jacksons’… break it down into like 5 episodes or something cause we have so much stuff….
