Funko Reveal TLC Pop! Rocks with Chase Figures

After months of speculation we can finally reveal that the TLC Funko Pop! Rocks are styled as the girls in the iconic “Waterfalls” video! They come with limited editon Chase variants in a translucent style, replicating the scenes of the video where the ladies turn into water!

You can order your Pops from Walmart in the US, or in the UK head over to Pop In A Box or Hull Pops to pre-order your Pops now or Zavvi! If you fancy buying the whole set as a bundle, preorder at Poppin’ Off Toys. If you’re Chasin’ a Chase, you can try Chalice Collectables, Big Apple Collectables and Collector Cave.

The estimated release date for the Pops are scheduled for January 2021. Chase Pops are sent at random with a 1 in 6 chance of obtaining one, so you may have to get lucky or order 6 at a time to get one!

‘Chase’ is what they refer to as linited edition. These Pops are harder to find and sent in orders at random, which usually cannot be reserved unless specified by the retailer.

What do you think of the official TLC Funko Pop! Rocks figures?

T-Boz Set To Return To Acting In Upcoming Movies ‘After Masks’ and ‘Things Like This’

There is nothing that the multi-platinum, Grammy award winning, singer/songwriter, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, can’t do. In addition to her long-term career as a member of TLC, the actress, producer, choreographer, mentor, entrepreneur, charity spokeswoman and mother is ready to add some more credentials to her acting resumé.

Fresh from her reoccurring role as Sheila Watkins in the hit daytime television soap ‘Days Of Our Lives‘ last year, Tionne will star in ‘After Masks‘, a 5-part anthology film written and directed by the actors themselves while under the stay at home order.

The stories will focus on many of the relatable issues we are all dealing with while on quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic such as isolation, uncertainty, fear, substance abuse, and self-discovery. The segments, while standalone, will take place during the same time period, and share the same through-line.

Tionne will play the role of Cheryl in the film, and as filming is complete it can be expected to be released very soon, so stay tuned for more details. Other stars in the film include Mitchell Hoog (‘Saved By The Bell Reboot’), Debra Wilson (‘MadTV’), Eric Roberts (‘The Dark Knight’) and Robert Picardo (‘Star Trek: Voyager’).

The film will even feature one of TLC’s greatest tracks from recent years, the thought-provoking “American Gold“, lifted from their last album in 2017, which completely deserved to be a single, so it’s great that it will finally get some more attention, as it is the perfect soundtrack that serves as a reflection of these current times that we’re living in.

In addition to ‘After Masks’, Tionne will also be starring in the movie ‘Things Like This‘, a modern-day romantic comedy, written and directed by ‘Orange Is The New Black’ actor Max Talisman. The plot centers around two young gay men with the same name living in NYC that fall in love and it appears that the universe has brought them together.

Deadline states that other cast members include Eric Roberts, Michael D. Cohen (‘Henry Danger’), Jasmin Savoy Brown (‘For the People’) Charlie Tahan (‘Ozark’), Dyan Cannon (‘Kangaroo Jack’), Santwon McCray (MTV’s ‘Wild n’ Out’), Krista Allen (‘Significant Mother’), Miles Tagtmeyer (‘Broken’), and Jake Reiner, grandson of the late Carl Reiner.

Are you excited to be seeing Tionne in more acting roles? What’s your favorite role so far?

T-Boz as Sheila Catching Feelings For Mayor Carver in Days?

InShot_20190405_083310978.jpg

Love could be in the air in Salem this week!

Sheila Watkins listens to Abe Carver rant about Jack and Eve in the pub, thinking of Haley as some dangerous criminal. Abe is worried that Jack could win.

Abe thinks Jack is sharp and that he’ll twist his words. Sheila suggests Abe should fight back. Abe admits he compromised his integrity by allowing Ted to stay on as DA when he’s crooked.

Abe decided it was better than having a corrupt mayor. Sheila thinks Abe should bring up Jack being a rapist but Kayla’s his friend. He can’t, so Sheila suggests he play matchmaker with him and Jennifer.

Abe refuses, patronising Sheila and refers to her ideas as ‘colourful’. “So, I guess Law & Order Abe Carver doesn’t need advice from ex-con Sheila from the hood“, Sheila fumes, grabbing her bag and tries to leave.

Abe quickly jumps up to prevent Sheila from leaving the table, telling her how much he appreciates her support.

The pair share a moment gazing into each others eyes and move closer together.

Is this the sign of their friendship developing into something deeper?

The ‘T’ of TLC is returning to our TV screens, very soon!

Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins is set to feature in the all new season of WE TV‘s hit reality show, ‘Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta‘, set to air in the summer of 2019!

Executively produced by Xscape’s Tameka “Tiny” Harris, other stars who have featured in the hit show include rappers Da Brat, Lil’ Mama and Bow Wow.

In additon to T-Boz, the 3rd season is set to add Waka Flocka, Tammy Rivera and R. Kelly‘s ex-wife, Andrea “Dre” Kelly, who vows to tell the truth about her time with the singer!

About the show:

Atlanta has become a hotbed for hip-hop music, and it is the setting for this reality series that explores what life is like for a tight-knit crew of friends, many of whom have family members who are well-known in the hip-hop community.

Shad Moss — better known as Bow Wow — returns to Atlanta to release his first album in several years, which he intends to make his swan song before bowing out of the industry so he can focus on raising his child and dealing with other personal issues.

Mentoring him are surrogate fathers Snoop Dogg and Jermaine Dupri. Hoping to step out of their parents’ famous shadows are members of Bow Wow’s ATL crew, including Dupri’s daughter Shaniah Mauldin; and Ayana Fite, the daughter of Beastie Boys mainstay DJ Hurricane and Barnes’ cousin.
