Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas from TLC reveal why they refuse to take part in "Real Housewives of Atlanta" despite numerous invitations.


TLC's Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas have revealed that they have received numerous invitations to join Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta."

The singers, who are embarking on a summer tour with Nelly and Flo Rida, opened up about their reasons for refusing to join the hit reality show.



Chilli and T-Boz admitted that they are not fans of the reality show, although T-Boz did a cameo for Kandi Burruss.

The two women revealed that they feel that the show's image would not be compatible with their brand.

Seventeen years after the untimely death of TLC's third member, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, Chilli and T-Boz still miss her and honor her memory.



T-Boz was adamant and explained that she would not be comfortable in the ambiance of constant rivalry and conflict.

"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," said T-Boz



T-Boz and Chilli opened up about their 29-year friendship which they described as "sister-plus."

"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.We've been through everything that now, in our adult life, it's so much easier. We both have grown a lot." said T-Boz.



Seventeen years after the untimely death of TLC's third member, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, Chilli and T-Boz still miss her and honor her memory.

T-Boz revealed that their new show incorporates "Left Eye's" irrepressible energy.

"It's high energy, a lot of dancing. It's a good feeling, you'll feel Left Eye's presence, absolutely. 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.

It is Lisa's memory that the T-Boz and Chilli still preserve to this day, and one of teh reasons they will never participate in "RHOA."



Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas dipped her toes in the waters of reality TV in 2010 with a VH1 shoe called "What Chilli Wants."

Chilli opened up about her "must haves" for a man in her life, "washboard abs", no smoking, and no drinking.

But she placed no restrictions on race. Chilli revealed she is as willing to date white men as she is black men, and advised other women to do the same.

Chilli's reality show ran for two seasons, but she has shown no indication that she wants to return to reality TV.
