Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, of the celebrated ’90s all-girl hip-hop crew TLC, announced this morning that she is getting a reality television of her own. The show will be called “Totally T-Boz,” and will air on — why not? — TLC beginning in 2013. According to TMZ’s report, the series will follow T-Boz as she juggles single motherhood and her recent health issues, and as she makes an attempt at relaunching her long dormant music career.
The greedy TLC fans that we are, we are thrilled to hear that T-Boz is staging a comeback; and given her recent financial troubles, the regular check the show could provide sounds like a fine bonus. However, we are not so confident that Go-Go juice can do for her career what it has done for that of Honey Boo Boo child, and so as cute as the TLC on TLC match-up may be, we do have to wonder if there might be a network more fit to suit her comeback needs.
TLC fans should also be happy to remember that VH1 has a TLC biopic in the works for 2013. The scripted series will focus on TLC’s influence as a group, and will be scripted by screenwriter Kate Lanier of Glitter and Beauty Shop fame. T-Boz and Chilli have both signed on as consultants and executive producers.
