Tboz TLC-Army.com wetv

The legendary Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins will be returning to our television screens in July!

The TLC legend will be featured in WE TV‘s ‘Power, Influence & Hip Hop: The Remarkable Rise of So So Def‘ on July 18, documenting the importance of Atlanta’s very own Jermaine Dupri!

The one-hour special will feature never-before-seen archival footage as well as original interviews with Mariah Carey, Usher, Snoop Dogg, will.i.am, Da Brat, Bow Wow, Nelly and of course, T-Boz!

Dupri played a huge part in the rise of TLC from the very beginning — JD was the one who was responsible for encouraging T-Boz to sing in her lower, scratchy vocal tone that we all know and love her for!

He also helped launch the careers of Kris Kross, Bow Wow, Da Brat and Xscape. The Songwriters Hall Of Famer also crafted classic records with Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, Usher, Ludacris, to name but a few.

The trailer captures the eclectic, genre-blending nature of So So Def in an amazing moment where Dupri and Mariah Carey share a glass of red wine and the former quips, “She’s a rapper,” and latter responds, “He’s a diva.”

‘Power, Influence and Hip Hop will premiere June 23rd at SeriesFest in Denver, Colorado before arriving on We TV in July.

T-Boz House Party 2019 - TLC-Army.com

On June 9, 2019, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins held a house party for her fans that had paid to go to her annual charity event, ‘T-Boz Unplugged‘, following last months announcement of the cancellation of this years show.

Many of her diehard fans were in attendance, including the lovely Carl, one of the biggest TLC fans ever! Here’s how his night at the party went down, in his own words!🎉

“Fans arrived around 5:30pm. T-Boz arrived around 5:45pm. She went downstairs to prep for the event. A steady flow of fans kept arriving throughout the beginning of the party.

The first thing that fans had to do was give their phones up. We received a ticket that matched the ticket of our phones. Also, the fans were treated to food and drinks. It was a reunion for a lot of TLC fans. There was a lot of “Hellos” and hugging.

There was a music mix of TLC songs and today’s hit songs. The house was hot! The AC couldn’t keep up with all the hot bodies. The windows and patio door had to be opened to funnel some of the heat out of the house.

T-Boz was downstairs and a line formed to go down and take pics with her. Finally, the hostess, T-Boz, came from downstairs to make her appearance and to hang with the fans. She hugged and mingled with so many fans. She showed a lot of love. She gave everyone their special time with her.

The food flowed steadily. It was a lot of talking and mingling. T-Boz was showered with gifts. Next, there was more dancing. T-Boz and about three fans started a TLC dance class. The fans did TLC dances and was taught some TLC moves.

Other fans watched while the dancing was going on. One request was made by one fan. The fan wanted to hear one of T-Boz’s solo songs. The song was “Stronger Than You Know.” T-Boz had the DJ play the song and said that it was one of her original oldest songs that she had written.

After the dancing, everyone clapped. There was so much fun going on. T-Boz mingled some more then she headed downstairs for more pictures. Fans got to take pictures with T-Boz in a photo booth as well as professional pics by a photographer. This was the second round of pics.

The line formed and people went down one by one to have their pic time with T-Boz. After all the pics were taken, the event was coming to a close. Fans started to head home. Some lingered a bit.

Finally, the event was over. It was one of the best TLC experiences fans could have ever had. Fans got to actually hang out with the person they so admired. T-Boz was very gracious. She was happy. She apologized for the situation.

T-Boz as Sheila Watkins Quits Job After Kissing Mayor Carver

Things got a little heated this week on the hit, long-running NBC soap, Days of our Lives!

Whilst digging the dirt on Mayor Abe Carver‘s opponent, Jack Deveraux, Sheila Watkins makes light of the fact she almost kissed her boss.

With Abe not completely dismissing the idea, Sheila leaned in and gave Abe a quick kiss — just to reassure herself that there was absolutely no chemistry between them!

“You’re not my type and you’re old enough to be my Dad!”, Sheila jokes. “You dress like him, too.”

Just as they agree to pretend the kiss never happened, Abe’s girlfriend, Valerie Grant, returns on the scene to surprise him with her support.

Unfortunately for the two, they were being watched by Jack, and he used this friendly encounter against Abe to smear his campaign to maintain his position.

Abe yells that Jack’s allegations are baseless. He’s not having an affair with Sheila. Val defends Abe and Jack grins as he reveals the photo of Sheila kissing Abe.

Everyone gasps. Sheila calls it a fake but they go on about how dishonorable Abe is. Abe reluctantly admits the photo is real and Sheila tells Val she can explain it. Val takes off as the press hounds Abe.

He races after her while Sheila says there’s nothing between them and takes the blame for initiating the kiss.

Val and Abe have a heart-to-heart in the park. Abe explains and apologizes. She accepts but they both agree to part ways, and kiss each other goodbye.

Sheila appears just as Val leaves, and decides that she too will be leaving Salem, and quits her job as his assistant to help save his reputation and mayoral position.

Abe pleads with her to stay — he needs her input to reach his full potential. But Sheila has made up her mind. She thanks him for all he has done for her and leaves town.

This is currently Tionne’s final scene for the show, as we reported last week. I doubt this will be the last we see of the feisty Sheila Watkins. Stay tuned!

Should Sheila to return to DAYS in the future?
