In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Rozonda Thomas and Tionne Watkins reveal that they have turned down the offer to star on the Bravo series four times.
TLC stars Tionne Watkins (a.k.a. T-Boz) and Rozonda Thomas (a.k.a. Chilli) have no interest in laying bare their lives on reality TV after rejecting repeated offers to join the cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta“.
The “Waterfalls” hitmakers, who both live in the city of Atlanta, Georgia, reveal show bosses are desperate to snag one or both of the musicians for the series, which Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins claims to have turned down four times to date.
“This is the thing, I don’t play like that,” T-Boz tells Entertainment Tonight of wanting to avoid the on-air drama the show is famed for.
“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 (sic). If I care about you, I will take the time to do this. But I’m not arguing with no grown women (sic). I’ll end up going to jail for real. Like, I don’t do that.”
Weighing in on the topic, Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas jokes, “And I wouldn’t be able to bail her out because I would be right there with her!”.
If they ever did sign up for “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, they would have a friendly face to turn to as it currently features singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss, who co-wrote TLC’s classic hit “No Scrubs”.
