Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins has returned to Atlanta! Not for good, though. She is back to see her doctor, and to catch up with her industry friends in this week’s episode of ‘Growing Up Hip-Hop: Atlanta‘!

Her long-time friend, Jermaine Dupri, is throwing a party at Cascade skating rink and has invited his superstar friends; Usher, Da Brat, Dallas Austin and of course, T-Boz.

Deb Antney, Waka Flocka Flame‘s mother, is also in attendance, and she informs the crew that she is still feeling sore from her sexercise class, taught to her by R. Kelly‘s ex-wife, Drea Kelly.

JD is ready to hit the rink his song comes on. T-Boz goes to grab her shoes. “I don’t skate, I moonwalk!”, Da Brat screams before they all hit the skating rink.

T-Boz and Da Brat catch up afterwards. T-Boz tells Da Brat about her trip to Japan and her upcoming tour with Nelly and Flo Rida. “It’s like being an adult to 75 adults, and it’s a headache!”, T-Boz admits.

“You know I filed bankruptcy?”, Da Brat confesses. “No!”, a shocked T-Boz replies. “You know, I did it twice”, T-Boz reassures Brat. “Yeah, I know. I gotta talk to you about that, too. I gotta get some advice”, Da Brat says.

Da Brat gets into the additional drama in her bankruptcy case. “I had a judgement against me that I just can’t pay, about the thing I went to jail for, [for hitting somebody]”. “They wasn’t really hurt though, right?”, T-Boz queries. “A little bit?”. Da Brat reveals that the woman was pretty injured. “They say she has some sort of brain damage”.

A concerned T-Boz asks Da Brat if she has lawyers to help her case. Da Brat reassures T-Boz that her legal part is being taken care of. “I’ll keep you in my prayers about the other stuff”, T-Boz says to Da Brat as they say goodbye to each other as Da Brat needs to be up early.

Although T-Boz was announced as part of the cast of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta earlier this year, she has revealed that she won’t be in many more episodes because she and her daughter, Chase Rolison, quit early into the recording.

She told us that her appearance will be more of a cameo, so that is something to keep fans happy!

T-Boz can also be seen on the So So Def special ‘Power, Influence and Hip-Hop: The Remarkable Rise of So So Def’, about the importance of music mogul, Jermaine Dupri.

Three strong, independent 90’s girls Chilli, Mya and Lil’ Kim are gearing up for the cruise of a lifetime — welcome to VH1‘s Girls Cruise!

“I’ve travelled the world, seen it all. But the music industry is tough. Especially for women”, Lil’ Kim narrates in the show’s opening. “We never have the time to just stop,  and enjoy the view”.

“So I’m bringing some of the baddest females and some of my besties to set sail on a 10-day trip to make up for lost time!”, Kim continues.

This trip is about bond, breakthrough and turn up! We’re gonna sea, slay and love across 3 of the most beautiful Caribbean islands — Barbados, Tobago and Trinidad. Ending in the most epic street party in the world!

Mya and Lil’ Kim have been ‘bonded for life’, as they shared their first Grammy together for their 2001 collaboration for the Moulin Rouge smash, “Lady Marmalade“, but Kim had yet to form a real bond with Chilli.

“I’m like the 4th member of TLC!”, Lil’ Kim exclaims. “Chilli, T-Boz and Left Eye were always my sisters. I have so many memories with Left Eye, and so many memories with T-Boz. But, I don’t have any memories really with Chilli, because we never really got to bond”.

“I do need a vacation like, yesterday!”, Chilli confesses. “But, I’m a planner… You know what, I’m gonna do it! I need a break, a little break!”

The girls touch down in Barbados and meet up on a multi-million dollar yacht! Chilli and Mya meet Lil’ Kim’s friends joining them on the cruise — B. Simone, Pretty Vee, Tiffany Panhilason and Char Defranseco.

“This right here is my baby hair motivation!”, Mya states about Chilli’s famous baby hair.  “Everybody, study the baby hairs! Baby hair queen!”, B. Simone adds.

The girls and Char all toast the moment with champagne — except Chilli, who has a bottle of water! “Hold on, hold on, why do you have water?”, B. Simone questions Chilli.

“I don’t drink the devil’s juice”, Chilli replies. “Ooh, seriously you’re keeping me focused!”, B. Simone says. Chilli explains,  “I don’t drink the devil’s juice, I don’t do any drugs whatsoever. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to turn up!”.

Tune in to VH1 every Monday to keep up with these iconic ladies to find out what they get up to on their once in a lifetime journey!

Our thoughts are completely with Chilli right now! The TLC superstar has been forced to cancel a string of TLC performances in California this week, due to her losing her voice!

Regarding the Sacramento engagement, TLC’s concert management team released the following statement: “Unfortunately due to Chilli losing her voice, TLC must cancel their appearance tonight at the California State Fair. They were very much looking forward to performing at the State Fair this year and hope to see everyone soon.”

On her Twitter feed today (July 14), Chilli stated that she has had to follow doctor’s orders to rest, which results in the unfortunate cancellation of some of their upcoming shows, including the California State Fair, Sacramento (July 14) and the Stanislaus County Fair, Turlock (July 16).

“It breaks my heart to tell our fans that we have to cancel our performance tonight at Sacramento because I lost my voice and my dr has me on strict voice rest”, Chilli said in her statement. “We want the fans at Sacramento to know we love them and thank them for their support.”

Stanislaus County Fair also released a statement, announcing En Vogue as the replacement for TLC.

“We are very disappointed TLC cancelled, especially because the community was extremely excited for the show. We know this is always a possibility in our line of business,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “We are still very excited to have En Vogue replacing them. We wish Chilli from TLC a fast recovery from losing her voice.”

We all wish Chilli a very speedy recovery. With lot’s of rest and TLC, she’ll be back on top form in no time!
