As discussed in earlier posts, the premise of T-Boz’s new show is that she moves to Los Angeles from Atlanta with a few of her closest friends and family members to work on her solo career.
The first thing I thought of, was when was the last time you heard T-Boz sing acapella… or better yet, have you EVER heard T-Boz sing… I mean REALLY sinnnng??
Personally I couldn’t imagine Watkins or her fellow TLC bandmate Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas venturing out alone musically, although Chilli has tried a time or two.

The two were rumored to be planning a TLC reunion tour, but Watkins, who has chronic sickle cell anemia, said she has flareups which makes it tough for her perform.

But…. she feels she’s healthy enough to return to the music business to “reinvent” herself. Hence… her new reality show, “Totally T-Boz,” which has been picked up for four 1-hour episodes.
It’s about 20 years later, me coming back from the brain tumor and doing things I want to do.
You’ll hear about all that in the show, my real-life struggles, being a single mother. I don’t care how much money you have in the world. It’s not about that. It’s all about time. I’m in charge of raising a young woman one day, to be a mother and hopefully a wife. All of that.
As you know, being a parent, that’s probably the hardest job ever.
“Totally T-Boz” is real — especially compared with most shows,” says Watkins, “they’re fake as all get-out, right? I’m real!”
