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!”
Watch the full FIRST episode of ‘Totally T-Boz’ below and share your thoughts…
Watkins spoke of her new show recently, and revealed that she wants it to be more than just another drama-filled reality show, stating….
Unlike a lot of shows I turned down, the network was interested in following my life and some of the positive things, not just doing the train wreck. They?re interested in doing something that has substance but we can have fun along the way.
T-Boz also says that her “test run” of four shows is perfect because it gives her time to find out if she’s really cut out for the “reality” of reality television.
I have to see if this is something I want to do. We?re on the same side. Let?s see if it works.
At least I got something out there. It wasn?t like I had to shop it around and wait for this. It fell
in my lap.
There’s a lot of people who have been going through what I went through and I want to help whoever I can.
I want to share my story because I think God spared me for a reason. I think that I’m supposed do something with it.
Did Tionne manage to hold y0ur interest for the 1st of her four episodes?
