Reigndrop Lopes Plans Left Eye Biopic and New Music!

20181212_001611 (4)

The prayers of many fans of the ‘L’ of TLC may have finally been answered, after years and years of hoping. The world could soon be blessed with some brand new music by the late and great Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes – according to her sister, Reigndrop Lopes.

If the prospect of new Left Eye music isn’t enough to keep you on cloud nine, Reigndrop also revealed that she has been steadily working on a Lisa Lopes biopic for the last 3 to 4 years, and plans to take as long as is required to ensure the project is done right to do her sister justice.

Speaking as a guest in Atlanta at The Conversation Corner for The Status Network with author Andrew Snorton, Reigndrop opened up about her own personal projects as well as the upcoming projects for Lisa.

Maintaining Left Eye’s Legacy

“I always wanted to continue my sister’s legacy in a positive way, so everything I do I try to make it positive for the young people coming up, specifically females, because I’m a female so I can relate to them more. I know how it was coming up, being bullied and not being like everybody else. So, I made sure I put that into everything I’m doing, whether it’s the acting, or the music or writing a book”.

Health Coaching

“I write plans for people and I also cook for people. Some people will hire me and I’ll come in and cook for them. I’m also still working on a healthy kids cooking show”.

Lisa Lopes Biopic

“It’s taking me years, but I’m going to take as long as it takes to get it done right! I’ve been working on this about 3 to 4 years now. So I pretty much want to get people who care about the story. I don’t just want someone who has a name in the industry or they have a background in making films. I want them to be in it for personal reasons.”

Overcoming frustrations making the movie

“I wanted to give up on making this movie so many times, because I don’t know anything about making a movie. But I know for a fact that I can do it, I just need the right people in place to guide me, and do the things they’re good at, and I stick to what I’m good at. I’m really good at having a vision, so the first person I met with was Rob Hardy, and he told me, if you want the movie to go a certain way you should get the script done first. So, I’m looking for a great scriptwriter. I’ve met with a few already but I haven’t found that perfect person”.

Reigndrop Lopes has a holiday single, “The Holidays Are Coming”, available on her website, where you can also purchase official Left Eye merchandise at ReigndropMusic.net

Left Eye Protégé’s Blaque Vow To Release ‘Torch’ Album!

After years of disappointments, false hopes and petitioning, the ladies of the group Blaque (discovered by Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes) have finally delivered fans the news they have all been waiting for — they will be releasing their previously unreleased album Torch!

Torch was recorded back in 2003 as a follow-up to their second album, Blaque Out (which was also heavily delayed due to record label conflicts). Torch was scheduled to be released on Elektra Records in 2004, but the girls were instead released from their record contract, leaving the completed album unreleased.

Fans have been demanding the album to be released for many years. Our friends at Dimension TLC even put together a petition to get the album heard. This got the attention of the remaining Blaque members, Shamari DeVoe and Brandi Williams, and they are listening!

InShot_20181109_021551151.jpg

On October 28, the birthday of the late Natina Reed, Shamari and Brandi decided host the first Remembering Natina annual party to celebrate her life, and announced to the world that they were going to release the Torch album in full, very soon!

Dimension TLC owner James posted the announcement in the Blaque Out! chat group on Facebook. “Our true Blaque fans!“, Brandi said excitedly to the crowd. “Y’all know about that Torch album? Y’all have been asking, y’all have been petitioning, y’all have been dying to know what happened to Torch.”

Well tonight“, Brandi continued, “on our sisters birthday, we have decided to let everyone know that Torch will be released very soon!”.

“Not just the snippets, but the FULL album!”, Shamari insisted. “Every single song. We just copped the masters for Torch! We are releasing Torch!”.

The Torch album features a fitting tribute to their idol Left Eye on a track titled “Her Name”. The singles “Ugly” (featuring Missy Elliott) and “I’m Good” from the Honey soundtrack are also on the tracklist.

Shamari has been cast in the latest season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. With the show still reeling in record viewing numbers, we’re pretty certain this will attract more fans back to Blaque!

Chilli Gets Yung Joc Eating Healthy With New Show ‘Fix My Plate’

With Chilli being such a health conscious person, who not only works out regularly but eats the right food, it was only a matter of time for her passion to come full circle, work-wise!

Chilli announced that she is working on a brand new cooking show she is calling Fix My Plate which will feature her helping some of her industry friends change some of their unhealthy cooking habits and find an alternative and healthier way to cook.

This week, Chilli was caught filming an episode for the show with rapper Yung Joc, as they took time out to talk to TMZ Live to explain what to expect on the show.

I’m doing this because a lot of people want to eat healthy, but they don’t know what to do, or they don’t want to stop eating all the bad stuff“, Chilli told TMZ. “What I do is find out what they like, and then find the healthier version of that.”

Nearly 40 percent of Americans are trying to eat more plant-based foods, according to a Nielsen Homescan survey.

Production for @fixmyplatetv this am! Stay tuned…..

A post shared by Chilli (@therealchilli) on

A meat-free product Chilli swears by, that she introduced to Yung Joc, is the Beyond Meat range. “What I’m gonna do [to get him off his regular consumption of fried chicken] is make him a Beyond burger“, Chilli says.

It’s loaded with protein and it’s plant based, the texture is amazing, it’s so good!

Beyond Meat has sold 25 million of its “Beyond Burgers” since 2016, according to the company.

Restaurants, including TGI Friday’s, sell it on its menu. White Castle sells the Impossible Burger, which Eater magazine called “one of the country’s best fast-food burgers, period” in April.

Chilli is very clear on the importance of making small changes when it comes to changing one’s eating habits.

I think you have to take baby steps, you can’t just jump into it, because when you do it like that, you won’t stick to it, you’ll fall apart.

The show is still currently in production and will be with us in 2019.

T-Boz Resumes Role as Sheila on DAYS This Fall!

hortonhouseset1 (1)

Salem is about to get a lot more interesting, thanks to the return of one of the town’s most notorious characters!

We announced back in April that T-Boz was returning to the hit NBC daytime soap Days of our Lives for the third time, in her reoccurring role as former inmate Sheila Watkins.

Since Sheila made her swift exit from the show last November, following her foiled plot with Bonnie Lockhart to blackmail the Kiriakis family for their fortunes, it was unsure if she would ever return to the show.

It is now clear that Sheila is back on the scene with some unfinished business to attend to! According to CDLEli (Lamon Archey) will be taken aback by Sheila’s return.

Sheila will have a couple of crucial reasons for showing back up in Salem. Will it affect his relationship with Lani (Sal Stowers)?

It sounds like Sheila will make a few waves for Eli, but he won’t be the only one she pesters. Days spoilers state that Abe (James Reynolds) will get involved in this storyline.

When he meets Sheila, he’ll instantly know that she’s trouble. Abe and Sheila will clash right off the bat, so Days of Our Lives viewers can expect some great confrontations!

IMG_20180908_164609_787

This time around, she’ll be part of a surprise storyline with Bonnie (Judi Evans) and Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Tune in to Days of our Lives on September 13, 2018 to witness Sheila’s return, and watch it regularly to see what happens next!

Are you excited about Sheila’s return to DAYS?
