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.

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
