OOOOOOOHHH.... ON THE TLC TIP: Back in the day, when people said TLC, they were referring to singers Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas and Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes of the R&B girl group -- not to the network known for shows like "Little People, Big World" and "Cake Boss." VH1 announced this week that they'll take us back to that time with a biopic on the music group. And in other TLC news, it was also revealed this week that T-Boz has filed for bankruptcy.
Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes, a controversial member of chart-topping American R&B trio TLC, was killed in a car crash in Honduras on April 25, 2002, a spokeswoman for her record label said. Lopes, who was in her early 30s, made the headlines in 1994 after she was arrested for burning down the house of then-boyfriend, former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Andre Rison.
