VH1’s much-anticipated biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story aired last night to much fanfare. Social media networks buzzed with comments from millions of viewers live- blogging every minute of the show. The most interesting scenes in the TV movie belonged to original TLC member Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas (played by Keke Palmer), and Pebbles (Rochelle Aytes). Chilli’s baby hair trended on Twitter.com for the duration of the show. And poor Pebbles was dragged unmercifully due to Aytes’ dishonest portrayal of her on the show.
Rapper Lil Mama played the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Drew Sidora acted the part of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins. The cast was rounded out by Diana Ross‘ son, Evan Ross (music producer Dallas Austin) and actor Carl Anthony Payne (“Martin”), who played LaFace Records co-founder LA Reid.
