For some people, T.L.C. stands for "Tender Loving Care." For others, it stands for The Learning Channel (the former name for the Discovery channel that once aired learning-related shows but now airs Here Comes Honey Boo Boo). And then there are those of us who associate the initials best with T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli, the three women who once made up the musical trio TLC. The "T" of the group is getting her own reality show, and wouldn't you know it? It's landed at TLC.
Discovery announced today that Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins is set to star in her own docu-series, tentatively titled Totally T-Boz, which will focus on her return to music. T-Boz hasn't had an easy time of it in recent years, having suffered and survived a life-threatening brain tumor, which apparently resulted in her having to relearn how to watch and talk all over again. It sounds like she's ready for her big comeback, as she's set to leave her life in Atlanta to pursue a solo career. The 42-year-old artist won't be making the journey alone. Coming along for the ride are are her daughter Chase, little brother Kayo, cousins Barb and Chris, best girlfriend Tae-Tae, and business partner Tara.
Known for hits like "Creep", "Waterfalls" and "No Scrubs," TLC's height of fame was probably around the mid-to-late 90s. Tragedy struck in 2003 when Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was killed in a car accident. TLC has made some appearances since then, including a performance on American Idol last year. I have no doubt that there are still plenty of fans out there who'd be interested in seeing T-Boz' reality show.
TLC has given the series a four-episode order and plans to get it on the air sometime in early 2013. The show has already begun filming.
