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!
I’m not on the season me and Chase quit but I guess it’ll be a cameo appearance! ☺️
