Exclusive: Chilli Talks Experience On ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’



Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas has been more than open about her dating life and has taken to television to share with fans her journey to finding Mr. Right.

From her own reality show What Chilli Wants to being featured on Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker, the singer is determined to find the love of her life. But is it difficult to put your dating life in the hands of a stranger or … Stanger?

During a recent interview with Thomas, the TLC group member opened up about her experience on MM and what it was like working with famous matchmaker, Patti Stanger. “My friend was telling me ‘Patti is this, Patti is that’ and it’s different from the show [What Chilli Wants] because she is really going to listen to you,” Chilli told us. “I was open to it. When I talked to the producers I said ‘I’m serious. This is my type. This is what I want. I won’t compromise here or there.’ I laid it out.”

Chilli, who had a very public relationship and breakup with Usher Raymond in early 2000’s, explained how she felt when Patti suggested that she dated bad guys in the past. “I wasn’t sure if what she was saying was produced, or was it something she really wanted to ask me. I’ve never dated bad boys, I just dated guys that wasn’t a good match for me,” the Atlanta native said.

Thomas continued, “I don’t care what anybody says, I feel like when you’re in this business, especially being a female, it’s tuff for us. It can be very intimidating for most men, even men in our industry.”

The 44-year-old added, “Because of the hours and all the things that go into this world that we’ve chosen to be in, I’d rather deal with someone who is part of it somehow. You have to be with somebody who understands this life.”

Needless to say, Chilli’s time on Millionaire Matchmaker was a fun experience, but she did not find what she was looking for.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
