After the premiere of the VH1 biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, it looks like TLC ex-manager, Pebbles Reid isn’t the only one who’s upset. You may recall that following the premiere of the long-awaited movie, Pebbles was furious and wanted retractions. Since then, another Reid has stepped forward and aired out her frustrations with the movie. Pebbles and L.A. Reid’s daughter, Ashley Reid took to Twitter to defend her mother and recently did one better. She fired some shots at TLC and also threatened TLC band member Chilli, on her online radio show, REID All About It.
Here are some of the highlights of Ms. Potty Mouth/Ashley Reid’s interview:
On how she felt her mother was used:
They [T-Boz and Chilli] know what they lied about... They used mostly our family, mostly mom as a pawn for publicity to drive the whole entire film and she was actually in the majority of it. As the devil, as the super villain and common sense will tell you if you continue the whole entire time to point a finger at everybody else and never take responsibility for anything, it usually means that you need to sit your f*cking a** down and take some accountability for something.
On making her mom a villain:
Mom woke one day and decided she wanted to make the biggest girl group in the world and went and plucked them and their dusty a**es off the corner of the street. And then spent almost a million dollars developing them in the basement of our home, paying for doctors bills, for food, styling, apartments, transportation, for studio time and etc. for them to then get a production deal with Laface Records, where the actual money was coming from. That is actually how this s**t works. At the end of the day, it’s not even necessarily a give me credit type of thing, it’s don’t be lying stank a** b*tches. Seriously.
On Chilli being intimate with her father, L.A. Reid:
I’m not gonna talk about Chilli sucking my father’s d**k or most of the d*cks in the industry in the 90’s. That has nothing to do with the fact that she is a lying person. I won’t even call her a wh*re anymore. She’s claimed that we got it.
On how and why she plans to get physical with Chilli when she sees her face-to-face:
When I said on Twitter, ‘Chilli I can’t wait to see you,’ what I meant by that was ‘I can’t wait to see you to beat your f*cking face into the concrete.
Chilli has since responded to Ashley’s accusations and threats with poise and grace by saying that the experiences that they had with Pebbles were with her and not her children. She also said, “they were little so they weren’t even able to comprehend what was going on between us and their mom because they were children.” She went on to say that she hopes that they’re doing well and she understands them being upset but she stands by the fact that this was TLC’s story and it was in no way fabricated.
There are always three sides to a story, yours, theirs and the truth. And although we don’t know who is being completely truthful, Ashley’s poor language and threats seemed to hurt, not help her mother’s case. We’ll see how this story continues to unfold.
