Chili and T-Boz To Do Reality Show   Print 
Tuesday, 16 November 2004

TLCSurviving members of TLC, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, have teamed with UPN for a reality series aimed at finding a replacement for third member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes. Lopes died in a car wreck in 2002.

"R U the Girl With T-Boz & Chilli," will be produced by Fox TV Studios and will feature Watkins and Thomas putting a group of aspiring female performers through weeks of rigorous challenges. Watkins and Thomas will serve as judges who will eliminate contestants until they select a winner who will join them for a concert and a recording session.

"We want to find someone with the right chemistry and magic to work with us," Watkins and Thomas said. "We have been blessed with great success, and this is a chance for our fans to join us as we give someone a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fulfill their dream."  

Watkins and Thomas, had previously announced to the world they would not continue TLC without Lopes.

"It's a very emotional story," UPN entertainment president Dawn Ostroff said. "I think our viewers, which are the 18- to 34-year-old group, have a very strong connection to TLC. T-Boz and Chilli's emotional journey over the past two years, since Left Eye died, has been very public. Trying to get past that and (take the next step) has been on their minds, and doing it in a public way, including their audience and their very devoted fans (in the process), made so much sense to us."

Casting for the series is expected to begin shortly.
