TLC's T-Boz to get reality show
There’s no doubt that the story of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, the lead singer (and “T”) of ’90s R&B greats TLC, is one worthy of a reality show. T-Boz is in the midst of trying to re-launch a recording career after going through personal hell in the late ’00s, being diagnosed with a brain tumor in ’06 that forced her to re-learn how to walk and talk and affected her weight tremendously, then going bankrupt a couple years later. It’s a story that should makeTotally T-Boz fairly compelling television, especially for those who remember the days when Watkins was the essence of CrazySexyCool.
All that said, the real lead from this news story is probably the channel that the show is gonna be on—none other than The Learning Channel, better known of course as TLC. Did the remarkable coincidence that the channel shares its name with the group that T-Boz is best known for play a part in the show getting greenlit? No word from either TLC yet on that.
