Ever wondered how the gorgeous ‘C’ of TLC always looks like the perfect package of perfection from head to toe? You’re about to find out!

Chilli spoke with Go 95.3‘s Auggie & Sophia on today’s show to reveal her tips on how she always looks so amazing, as well as what her favourite TLC song and what’s in store on the upcoming tour this summer.

Any TLC Tour Surprises

You’ll have to wait and see! But I will put it to you this way — performing means everything to us. People wanna come out and see us, so we always make sure that we put on a high energy show for eveyone. So, you’re gonna get that.

Chilli’s Secrets To Looking Amazing

Obviously, what I do, and I tell people this all the time, yes working out is very important. If you don’t do it, you get stiff. So, I like to encourage people to do what works for them. I don’t like to jog, I’m not a jogger, but I can dance all day long! When jogging, I’ll be out of breath in like two seconds. If that’s something to a person, then do it.

Even on the days when you have to push yourself a little more, you’ll go ahead and do it. So, for me, I like to work out at home. All of my work outs consist of Beachbody DVD work outs and their programs. Because I’m very petite, so I can’t just do cardio, otherwise I’ll look invisible. I like to incorporate weights. But you gotta eat right.

Vegetarian and Flexitarian Lifestyle 

I am a vegetarian and an occasional pescatarian. Like, if I cook salmon for my son or my family, I’ll eat it. Occasionally, I’m a flexitarian (laughs). I love that. Other than that, it’s plant based. I try and stay away from gluten. I don’t have an issue with gluten things, but the gut doesn’t like it. I don’t drink the devil’s juice, at all. I don’t do drugs of any kind, I just never got into anything like that. And that makes a huge difference to ageing, it will definitely speed up the process. I drink a lot of alkaline water, 95% of the time. I try to get good sleep, and I don’t have the stress of a relationship!

Favourite TLC song

I really love “Hat 2 Da Back”. It’s my favourite song because the lyrics describe us to a T. And Lisa’s rap — it’s my favourite rap of hers! It’s so much fun, and the video is fun, I just love that song!

TLC perform at the Twin Cities Pride in Minneapolis on June 22.
Tickets to the TLC amphitheater tour with Nelly & Flo Rida available at LiveNation.com.

TLC Turned Down Real Housewives of Atlanta: “I’d Go To Jail For Real!”

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.”

TLC

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.

‘All That’ Is Back – With The Original TLC Theme Song!

InShot_20190516_054511385.jpg

Update – Kel Mitchell, the ‘All That’ co-executive producer, has confirmed that the original TLC theme song will indeed return in it’s original form!

“Well, this is just an introduction, before I blow your mind. The show is All of That, and yes, we do it all the time” — the opening lines from a young and vibrant Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who laced the theme song of the Nickelodeon comedy skit show, ‘All That‘, along with her group mates Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas — aka TLC!

Often referred to as a ‘Saturday Night Live’ for a Nickelodeon audience, ‘All That’ first premiered on the network in 1994 and ran for ten seasons until 2005. As well as featuring on the shows opening theme, TLC were chosen as musical guests twice in season 1, and took part in various skits on the show.

T-Boz recently revealed that ‘All That’ using TLC in the pilot episode helped to get the show picked up by the network, as well as hiring the girls to perform the theme song. The president of Nickelodeon eventually picked the show up, and the rest is history, as they say. The power of TLC!

Despite the show ending in 2005, the ‘All That’ co-creator, Brian Robbins, who became the president of Nickelodeon in 2018, decided that he would greenlight the return of his former hit show. The revival of ‘All That’ was then confirmed in February 2019!

“We think there’s a great opportunity to find the next pool of stars,” said Robbins. “We want to bring the show back in a real fun way. This summer, we are going to bring back a lot of the original cast and the cast through the years, and let them introduce the new cast of ‘All That’ to the world,” which he described as “a sort of mash-up of some of the old sketches and a lot of new sketches.”

‘All That’ has kept up with the times — it’s presence is fully existent on social media — they excitedly announced the taping of the first episode in May 2019 in a series of posts to commemorate the moment with the world!

During shots of the audience at the taping, it was notable that the original TLC theme song can be heard blaring out the speakers before and after the taping, which leaves us to ask only one question — will TLC remain on the theme song for the revamped show?

If it ain’t broke, keep it the same!

The Jonas Brothers have been announced as the first musical guests, when the new show premieres at 8:30PM on June 15, 2019 on Nickelodeon.

Let’s hope they give TLC a call to make a guest appearance, too!
