Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins stopped by Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien Friday morning to chop it up about her exciting new ventures on the horizon for 2013. Between her TLC reality television show Totally T-Boz, production on VH1’s biopic of the popular ’90s girl group, a forthcoming tour and more, this lady has a full plate.
T-Boz spoke openly about her decision to have her life documented for a national audience.
“I can’t believe I’m doing this, but I did it because it kind of fell on my lap,” she said. “I was like, this is where I’m at in my life and TLC was interested in following me, not leading me, and there’s not ten years of technology to tell you about a the brain tumor, so maybe I can speak up and help somebody and then you’ll learn more about me, TLC and how I became who I am today.”
Watch below as T-Boz discusses giving back, handling a tour without groupmate Lisa “Lefteye” Lopes and (possibly) creating new TLC hits with rapper Drake.
