What Chilli Wants – Watch The Supertrailer

|

Above is an extended look at What Chilli Wants, the upcoming VH1 series that will chronicle Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas‘ search for love/male perfection. It turns out that what Chilli wants is a laundry list of traits in a man, including charm, pork-abstinence and washboard abs. As her friend Missy Elliott puts it, “No one’s gonna meet those standards. Date Jesus!” Sounds like someone’s working on a show pitch!

Anyway, along the way Chilli will be aided by “relationship expert” Tionna Smalls and possibly distracted by boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Read more about What Chilli Wants in our upcoming shows announcement, and tune in when it premieres on-air Sunday, April 11 at 10:30/9:30c.

  5. Jahlil says:

    @ Blogzilla: lol true if she can do it i know i can

  6. wow says:

    ” I cry alot because i don’t want to be alone” Now that’s the problem with most women now and days, they feel that by being alone no one will love or care for them, first of all you have to love yourself first and know that you’re not alone, and a man is not going to complete you unless you are happy with yourself.

  7. VH1 Rules says:

    Vh1 should bring back the VH1 Vogue Fashion Awards for 2010! anybody with me?

  8. Q says:

    This cannot be serious. Can I get a show too? Damn!

  9. DRAMA CITY says:

    “The worse kind of lonliness is being with the wrong person” – true dat! No pork, alchohol, smoking – now you start’in to sound like me. Why is it ugly a** people (the love specialist)are always so damm freaky? People allways act like ther’s someone out there for everyone – no there’s not! Chilli just do you! BTW, U still look good:)

  14. sasha says:

  15. latoya says:

    i’m so happy that i can see chilli.i miss the group

  16. A Storm says:

    I second that @Wow. Totally agree. Couldn’t say it better. You shouldn’t want or need a man to complete you. You will never be happy & will be in and out of relationships constantly if that’s the case, no matter how rich or good-looking he is. It’s something I had to figure out. Actually, we all—both men & women have to figure out. Find one who complements you. If you are not happy with yourself, how can you expect it in return? How can anyone enjoy the presence of your company when you don’t enjoy your own company? That is the missing link to the love equation. Like-minded people are attracted to like-minded people. Negative people are attracted to negative people and their drama. Just the way the Universe works. Something to think about. The storytellers have embedded in our heads & brain-washed us as young girls to believe in the fairy tales of the Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty stories. Just doesn’t work that way, not really reality. I wish Chilli the best, though!

  17. super says:

    ahhh im so excited, except ill be at school where i cant watch tv, oh well i can watch online episodes? hopefully ? <3<3<3 omg so exciting!

  18. Capricorn313 says:

    looks like a good show cant wait :)

  19. ACDJ says:

    does this tionna even have a real love relationship – is she married, engaged, or seriously being courted. women should have Standards when it comes to who they will be with. should she date JESUS? NO!…, nobody should ‘date’ Him. He is not a toy, a boy, or a game. I agree that one of the worst ways to feel loneliness is while one is married and suffering misery. that’s why we submit to God first and let Him give us His best, as He has given me. I had a God-inspired list and I am so glad I didn’t settle. chilli better not settle, but most of all, she better submit to The Lord Jesus Christ. Satisfaction guaranteed!

  20. johnny5 says:

    yessss! chilli is so fine… never lower your standars! she is so right about that. TLC is forever

  21. Brit says:

    She is so short and cute. She wants a man with high standards but who’s to say that she is high standards herself. sometimes we want more than what he are or can handle. Perfection doesn’t guarantee happiness.

  22. Ophelia says:

    I can identify with Chili. You drop your standards and you end up getting screwed. You’re not going to be 100% happy if you settle for less than what you really want. That’s me. I’m not settling. Yes I’m picky. But that’s the way I am. But I believe if we put our trust in Jesus, he will send that special one to us. We don’t have to settle. God created us that way for a reason.

  23. gerallunda says:

  40. meme says:

    i think that this will be a gud journey for chilli and opprounity maybe she will learn new things about herself…..I think she should put some thought into getting bak wit usher because he went through some life changing experience an i tink he’s grown alot an this time will do the right thing

  41. Shanika Greenwell says:

    I dont think that mayweather should be trying to win a date with chilli, he is so sexy and should not have to compete for a date with nobody.. I guess its all about the ratings.. but hey Mayweather u are the sexiest man alive… UUUUUMMMPH!

  42. MSMONEY says:

    This is another was ot film and time. Her mother should be ashamed of the child she raised with these UNREALISTIC ideas of what a man should be to have a relationship. Who at VH1 is green lighting these dumb (`!!($(_+!$_%!~ shows. Can any one write a book, be famous and get a show on this network. Reality television has gone too far. LisaRae, Chili, Brandy and RayJ, Basketball Wives. Do we as African Americans really need to act like the bafoons of old to get on television. We can’t get shows on network televison. I am ashamed of them all.

  43. Stella says:

    I watched the last show and you got too be crazy Chilli. You have to sacrafice a couple things from the list. And just by watching the show, I can tell that your BFF is your best option. Anyways, in reality they say its good when you go out with someone that you try to be their BFF. So, what’s the problem if he is already your BFF, thats a very good thing! With the whole “baby momma” that once is considerably not anything you can get away from. How about if he were to be single and no kids but he fell in your criteria, thats not fair for him, because your already a “baby momma” to someone else. Ya feel me, what I am getting at? Your expectations became “your expectations” because you didn’t have any but your way too asking for a perfect gentleman. And that my dear is way too hard to find. If you were to find someone truly that way with “no flaws” then your worry would have to be a mental issue. This can’t be good to be true.

  44. emjay2 says:

    Lawd, help me but I HOPE Chilli wants MAYWEATHER! OMG…their chemistry is SCCCCHHHMOKIN, ya’ll. I was just sitting there mezmorized by them.

    OMG…how sexy are they??? I believe I’m already smitten. Sorry Chilli and Floyd….I know ya’ll are just friends but…….*sigh*. Don’t know what else to say…lol.

  45. emjay2 says:

    Gonna start rooting in a minute….”Mayweather, Mayweather, Mayweather!” LOL! *Wink*

  46. emjay2 says:

    Oh, yeah…one more thing…everyone is talking about Usher. Now, I love Usher but….been there done that. I need to see some up-close and personal chemistry…not just what I THINK (or IMAGINE)what MAY or MAY NOT be there BEHIND the scenes with Usher. The chemistry IN MY FACE,that i see with my own two eyes, is the chemistry between her and Mayweather and THAT’S what I’m rooting for.

  47. Lady C says:

    Chilli Chilli Chilli honey bring your standards down some baby… I think the reason your standards are so high is because what you went through with Usher! Don’t let your past hold you back from meeting the man of your life that GOD got in store for you because you got your standard so high where the man you want is like sitting next to JESUS for GOD SAKES!!! Your BEAUTIFUL but you will be alone if you don’t take some of those things off your list… Keep JESUS, your SON, FAMILY, FRIENDS, BIG )+@)@%@^($%!$!%& cause trust me I KNOW HOW THAT IS LOL but honestly LOWER your standards. That don’t mean he WON’T SWEEP YOU OFF YOUR FEET, cause he can if you let go of Usher, TRUST and LISTEN to the people that have your best interest at HEART!!!! GOD BLESS EVERYONE around you and your relationship… Truly Lady C.

  48. Sofia5045 says:

    I wish the best for chilli. Girl , yes mayweather is nice guy and he is so cute but not for you chilli, Chilli is beautiful black woman and she needs the best guy! a men she will be with to grow old

  49. alexus13 says:

  50. Yessir says:

    This crazy lady is 4 or 5 years away from menopause and still be thinkin’ she can enter into a relationship with a list of demands? Shyyyyyd’, at her age, the only thing she can demand is that da’ nyggah is breathin’ and gainfully employed…And she’s a baby mama too? Real Talk

  51. mek says:

    I think the show is a hoke….SHe is so acting for tv…Come on now if you are truely looking for love why is floyd there he is not the pretty boy (as she would say)type she love his money…And to say her type is lusious the cleveland ohio stripper who has screwed any and everyone ugh chilli please be more realistic don’t waste the viewers time if you just want floyd have him…

  52. mek says:

    chilli talks about ego well come on floyd has the biggest ego… maybe not on this show but anyone who watches boxing will agree

  53. CRG says:

    I used to adore Chilli, I thought she was one of the finest women I had ever seen. But after seeing her show, I just feel sorry for her. She makes shallow Hal look good! I mean, damn. Get over yourself!

  54. Cary says:

    Chilli, Chilli, Chilli, I used to think you were one of the hottest sexiest women I had ever seen. But, since I’ve seen your show, and how picky you are, now I don’t find you as attractive. You make Shallow Hal look like a saint. I feel sorry for you.

  55. MSTLYNNE says:

    I loved Chilli for a long time as a person in TLC but on this show I cant stand her…Her attitude is a HOT MESS she was pretty but looks older now and her attitude is ruining what I used to think of her I say if you are looking for love do it in privacy because with shows like these you can ruin what your fans think of you.. dont get me wrong VH1 I do love the shows :)

  56. Latifah Ansari says:

    Chilli, I think you should give Floyd a chance. I see how both of you look at each other and have fun togehter. You can never find 100% in a man but when you find a man that loves you that is a start. Give it a chance and let the creator of your understanding guide. When you talk to him about what type of man be very descriptive about what you want, from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet do not leave out the interior that is important also, smile. Well I am cutting out and wish you well love, until the next time, Chilli, smile.

  57. aja says:

    FYI Chili: The guy Seneca Tutor is a married man and has run his game and lies on one of my friends within the last year! No wonder it’s hard to find a man, it’s hard to trust when so many LIE!!

  58. Ms Diva says:

    This show is WEAK!!!!!

  59. TaQuisha says:

    chilli chilli chilli wuts wrong wit u gurl i kno ur on tv i hope this is a act ur putting on ur not gettin any younger so y u actin like u have all the tyme in the world to find love y is ur attitude so UGLY IN THIS SHO I THINK U R WAISTING TIONNA’S TYME I ALWAYS LOVE U N TLC JUS KEEP UR STANDARDS DWN A BIT AND KEEP A OPEN MIND AND LOVE WILL FIND U

  60. InVus says:

    Well as far as looks Chilli is cute (but all that glitters aint gold.) And the to do something over and over repetitively and expecting a different outcome is the definition of insanity. So if you are observing men on the same list over and over and over well what the hell do you expect. I think she may actually find the man that she is looking for, and he isn’t going to want her because she doesn’t possess his qualities in a woman. Come on, now I can see why the group took a break for a while, that woman is freakin exhausting. Her dating coach has a lot of work cut out for her and I do mean that seriously. Maybe she needs to observe self before judging anybody else. Unless she’s crapping gold bricks she can’t ask anybody to be perfect because she’s not. Really she acts like she’s the only person that’s been hurt. While she’s basing guys off her list, she’s missing the possibilities that surround her.

  61. Gloria says:

    I THINK CHILLI IS FULL OF $^$@&`(!+!)&(%`^ BECAUSE SHE IS NOT ALL OF THAT. IT IS HARDER ENOUGH TO FIND ONE GOOD MAN. HEY WHAT HAPPEN TO THE BOYS FATHER HE DIDN’T MARRIED HER SO WHAT’S UP WITH THAT DID HE EAT ” pork” . MAYBE SHE SHOULD LOOK IN THE PRISON SYSTEM . OH BY THE WAY THAT IS WHERE THEY SAY ALL THE BLACK MENS ARE AT. I AM SURE SHE WILL FIND SOMETHING SHE WOULD LIKE. CHILLI SAY THE MAN GOT TO HAVE THIS AND THAT SHE MIGHT FIND SOMEBODY THAT HAVE ALL OF THAT BUT CHEAT ON HER ARE BEAT HER %_*#&&!^“&&^(! BE CAREFUL FOR WHAT YOU ASK FOR FOOL.

  62. celina says:

    my nane is celina hi its hard to talk about private issue so here goes stop please every thing i could compare you to would not eplain you but me and to ask for you to stop is like please let me shut up so on a two way lane to one voice sounds like listen for a better judgement bf your friend is off course.

  63. hassan sistrunk says:

    What chilli needs is a man that comes from the streets who subsequently alter his life from a negative to a positive which puts him in the posture to see things from both prospective. She is in need of a gentleman thug! visit me on facebook Hassan Sistrunk Profession Boxer & Certified Personal Trainer.

  64. Yvonne says:

    Chilli, I’m glad you are training your son how to treat a lady; and you should, but don’t forget to teach him the proper way to eat at the table, food hanging out of his mouth on TV come on, can you see the presidents daughter dinning out with him? I don’t think so, women will judge him the same way you treat dude with the red bull and drink like he had HIV or something. I think your are doing a good job from what I can see,but we need to work on the table manners.

  65. Hello says:

    I accidently put the comment for Chili on Gaga page.When you have time read it.

  66. Hello says:

    I have a aunt who was married for over 50years my uncle has passed on to be with the Lord.She said that his last words were not what she look like.It was you were an excellent wife.That is what matters.You see alot of things can change as you get older it has nothing to do with love.You can get so caught up in looks what about respect,responsibility,building a foundation etc.I use to date the pretty boys until the mom steps out and tell you he is a ^+&__)!++$!(&^+&! Which i appreciated or you find out he likes women and men which is popular in the Atlanta area right about now.I like a handsome neat man.Big mama said looks can fool you and she was not lieing.Women would hate on me in the background when i had free time and would kick it with the fellows that is why i know the games they play.Yes they would try to rap to you and i would come alone and leave alone.A lady is how they are gonna treat me cause when i step in the room i mean no disrespect and i do not be in there trying to talk to everyone just have fun.They see them 6feet cousins who are not hearing it.If it was about looks we would not have gotten stood up ever by a man.It is more to it.Getting to know one another and everything the elderly couple told you.Thier response was quite similar to how my aunt describes it.What i love about the elderly is they keep it realer then real.I cannot stand to sit in a room full of women listening to how innocent they are when they are not virgins.We are all sinners.So if you were the girl who never did anything wrong and you had sex befor marriage.It is still a sin.Men do not sit up there comparing how they are better than the next man or think they are better.They may have a game of dominos or cards going on.So i took advantage with me being single and was able to see how man acts over the years.I do not go out looking though.
