Why TLC’s Chilli Is Threatening Wendy Williams
TLC’s Chilli is warning TV host Wendy Williams to keep the group’s name out of her mouth. Wendy brought up TLC while discussing Naughty by Nature’s recently launched KickStarter campaign. Like TLC, the rap group is asking fans to help them produce a new album by making a modest financial investment.
According to Williams, Naughty by Nature is in a different stratosphere than TLC and should be above asking for money. “TLC even though they’re legendary, I look at them in a different lane than I look at Naughty by Nature … there are certain people that are so legendary that you can just survive off your old music and tour for the rest of your life,” Wendy said during her show’s “Hot Topics” segement. Many took those words as Williams throwing subtle shade at TLC.
You can fast forward to the 22:20 mark to watch the controversial remarks.
Williams may have a reason for the slight though. According to the personality, her producer Norman donated money to TLC’s KickStarter, but never received what was promised to him. Norman claims he was supposed to receive a handwritten letter from Chilli and T-Boz, but only got a piece of paper with a list of song titles written on it. During their KickStarter campaign, TLC received $430,255 from 4,201 fans to put together a new album that still has not come out.
After hearing about the segment from a fan on Twitter, Chilli fired back at Wendy, saying the TV diva wouldn’t commit any of her brash trash talk in person.
