Could the ladies of TLC ever make their Real Housewives of Atlanta debut?

T-Boz and Chilli sat down with ET’s Lauren Zima on Wednesday, where they chatted about their summer tour with Nelly and Flo Rida, but also revealed that they’ve been asked on multiple occasions to join the Bravo reality show.

“I have,” Chilli admitted about being asked to be a part of the series, with T-Boz adding, “I have too, four times.”

So would they ever join the ladies of Atlanta? “Heck no,” Chilli said.

“I did [a cameo] for Kandi [Burruss] one time,” T-Boz said, adding, “This is the thing, I don’t play like that. Like, I’m not arguing, I’m too old to be arguing and first of all, I don’t argue with nobody I don’t care about. If I care about you, I will take the time to do this. But I’m not arguing with no grown women. I’ll end up going to jail for real. Like, I don’t do that.”

Chilli jokingly added, “And I wouldn’t be able to bail her out because I would be right there with her.”

All in all, the two are just not fans of the series and say they “have a brand to protect and there is just no way” that they would enter that world. For now, T-Boz and Chilli are content with continuing their music careers and giving fans what they want.

During the sit down, the two also touched on their “sister-plus” friendship, where they got emotional about talking about being more than best friends and family.

“We went through everything together, life, death, marriage, divorce, breakups. We have been there through all the hurt you can possibly endure and all the good times. We’ve had arguments,” T-Boz expressed about their 29-year friendship. “We’ve been through everything that now, in our adult life, it’s so much easier. We both have grown a lot.”

The “No Scrubs”singers, meanwhile, can’t wait to share the stage with Nelly and Flo Rida in August and are ready to take fans down memory lane.

“It’s high energy, a lot of dancing. It’s a good feeling, you’ll feel Left Eye’s presence, absolutely,” T-Boz teased of what fans can expect. “Everybody leaves feeling good every time. That’s what we always hear…Takes you back to a time that makes you reminisce on something that was important to you.”

Tickets for TLC, Nelly and Flo Rida’s tour are now on sale at LiveNation.com.

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

Update — BLAQUE announced the release date for ‘Torch’ will be May 31, 2019!

The girls made the announcement on Facebook today (May 4, 2019).

———————————————————–

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!

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!
