This week, Very VH1‘s guests were Black Ink Crew stars Puma and O’S**t, who both have a little bit of baby mama drama in their life — although S**t’s is much more out of control. When he was asked about Kathy, his ex who flipped out on his current girlfriend, Kaylin, he responded “Kathy’s issue is that we have a whole long back story. She was like my first love and she feels like she’s entitled to me.” Hilariously, he was pret-ty sure Kathy was watching the live chat, so he and Puma made sure to give her a wave and say hi.

You heard a bevy of reasons why you should tune in to CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story from the lovely ladies who’ll be portraying TLC, but what about those actors playing the supporting players who helped the trio become the best-selling female R&B group?
In case you missed it, Love And Hip Hop star K.Michelle was at the CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story premiere last night, and we live-streamed the entire affair, from getting ready in her hotel room to her schmoozing with the cast. What did we learn from her live, unfiltered red carpet adventures? Read more…
TLC was Meant To Be, and it seems that the women portraying the iconic female group in CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story are also driven by destiny. Drew Sidora, an actress whose resume includes That’s So Raven and Step Up, has been honing her chops in homemade TLC videos since she was a little girl. “I felt like this role was made for me. I just really connected to the lines, the script, to the music–obviously–the fashion,” says the the film’s version of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins. “I was just really, really blessed and excited for the opportunity.”
The premiere of CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story last night was an amazing event — it’s a funny thing to see so many music industry titans and entertainment a-listers commingling with the actors who play them onscreen. Seeing T-Boz and Chilli next to Drew Sidora and Keke Palmer, the actresses playing them in the film, it’s impossible not to look for the resemblances. (If you haven’t seen any promos yet for the film, do check them out if only to see how incredible the actresses look as their real-life counterparts.)
The red carpet also drew some serious music heavies like Diana Ross, Mona Scott-Young, Missy Elliott, and Ne-Yo (who penned TLC’s brand new track, “Meant To Be”). Everyone looked stunning, so take a peek in our gallery above!
