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.

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.

Sheila Injects Some Classic TLC References on DAYS!

DOOL_13324_1371 (1).jpg

Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins aka Sheila Watkins returned to our screens this week in her reoccurring role on the hit NBC daytime TV soap, Days of Our Lives.

Wherever Sheila goes there is always a guaranteed scent of drama in the air, and this week confirmed that sentiment, as she came head to head with Abe Carver once again!

Abe (James Reynolds), still holding a grudge over the alleged attempted theft of his credit card, lays into Sheila for the second time when she parks her car in his parking spot whilst she visits her friend, Eli Grant (Lamon Archey).

Sheila keeps the mood light hearted despite being seriously annoyed with Abe, by throwing in some subtle TLC references within her dialogue!

Someone parked in my spot!“, Abe cries. “A beat up ’91 Chevette, licence plate T-L-C-4-E-V-A“. Sheila springs up and immediately blasts the mayor! “That would be TLC 4eva and, uh, yeah, that would be me!“.

Abe has Sheila’s car towed away, leaving her with a $250 fine that she cannot afford. Luckily, Eli bails her out but she insists she will get a job and pay him back.

When Sheila realizes Abe is the person she needs to contact for a job vacancy, she disapproves and calls him a jackass, which his daughter Lani Price (Sal Stowers) overhears and this causes an argument between the two!

Sheila wastes no time in telling Lani a few home truths when Lani makes some snide remarks about Sheila’s crooked past. “I don’t care what you call yourself“, Sheila exclaims. “You’re still the skank that broke Eli’s heart!“.

Continuing those epic TLC nuggets, Sheila, who has not yet realized that Abe is Lani’s father says, “I’m telling you, this guy is a first class creep, and a no good scrub!“.

Eli-Shiela-JJ.jpg

They argue, and Sheila can’t believe how badly Lani treated a good man like Eli. Lani tells her to mind her own business and rushes off.

Sheila then apologizes to Eli, who asks her to stay out of his personal business and focus on her own and get a job!

She decides to see if there are any other jobs in town and thanks Eli for helping her get her car back so she has a place to sleep. He refuses to let her live in her car and offers to have her stay with him.

Lani watches the two friends hug and walk off together, as she scowls at them with jealousy.

Does Lani have anything to worry about? Can you see Sheila and Eli becoming more than good friends?

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?

Viacom Reaches Settlement On TLC Movie Defamation Case

91P2Jv3l0PL._RI_ (1).jpg

TLC fans will have noticed the return of the hit TLC biopic CrazySexyCool The TLC Story back on their TV listings this week on VH1.

This is partly because Viacom have come to an out of court settlement with Perri ‘Pebbles’ Reid, throwing out her defamation claim and avoiding the need to go to trial.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a trial was set to begin on September 24 but the case was administratively closed on Friday after the judge was informed of the deal.

Reid filed a $40 million defamation lawsuit in 2014 after VH-1 aired CrazySexyCool. In a complaint, she objected to being portrayed in the TLC biopic as a “conniving and dishonest business woman who hoodwinked three innocent girls and exploited their talent for her own personal gain.”

Viacom attempted to get the case dismissed by presenting its film as a story told from the perspective of the two surviving members of TLC, who cooperated fully in its development.  The media company urged the judge to recognize there was no actual malice in what had been broadcast and with nods to such films as SelmaThe Social Networkand Ray, that creative liberties were often taken by those who make docudramas.

In a summary judgment opinion, U.S. District Judge Mark Cohen concluded that not everything Reid was upset about in CrazySexyCool was capable of defamatory meaning but some scenes were indeed capable of supporting a defamation claim.

Specifically, the judge allowed Reid to take Viacom to trial over scenes where she was shown pressuring the group’s members to sign contracts without sufficient time, for scenes showing Reid exerting control over lawyers for the group’s members, for scenes that conveyed the idea that Reid improperly deducted expenses and only paid TLC $25 a week, and for a scene conveying it was Reid’s decision to remove Chilli from TLC.

The fact that Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas cooperated with filmmakers ended up hurting Viacom as the judge accepted Reid’s word there may have been bias.

Viacom urged reconsideration by telling the judge he got the analysis of the actual malice standard wrong. Viacom contended there wasn’t any evidence how it had any reason to believe the information obtained was unreliable.

The judge responded that subjective doubt wasn’t the rule and that in any event, a conclusion about the filmmakers’ state of mind was something for a jury.

There won’t be a trial now thanks to the settlement.

Lin Wood, attorney for Reid, says terms of the resolution are confidential.

Viacom was represented by Elizabeth McNamara.

New airdates for CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story:

Tuesday 8/27 at 8pm
Saturday 9/1 at 9pm
Sunday 9/2 at 10:30am
