TLC’s Chilli and T-Boz on Why They Turned Down ‘RHOA’


*Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of TLC recently revealed on “Entertainment Tonight” that they’ve both been asked to join “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but turned the opportunity down.

In T-Boz’s case, she has declined four times.

“This is the thing, I don’t play like that,” T-Boz said of the show’s penchant for drama. “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.”

“And I wouldn’t be able to bail her out because I would be right there with her,” Chilli joked.

Both ladies say they “have a brand to protect and there is just no way” that they would enter the “Housewives” world.

In the meantime,  T-Boz and Chilli are working on a Broadway show and they’re gearing up to share the stage with Nelly and Flo Rida in August.

“It’s high energy, a lot of dancing. It’s a good feeling, you’ll feel Left Eye’s presence, absolutely,” T-Boz teased to ET about 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.”

T-Boz and Chilli also got a bit emotional during their sit-down with ET 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 said of 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.”
