Wow...A Tell All
22 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie was Great & you picked the perfect actresses & actors! Kudos to the Casting Director & Staff!!! I can really appreciate T-Boz & Chili for allowing us into their world and letting us see what really went on before Left-Eye decided she was ready to go. May she rest in peace!!! May the group continue in their future endeavors to maintain the LEGACY of TLC!!! KeKe, Drew, & Lil Mama did an awesome job!!! The guy who finally got them their money will probably go a long way too. I hope they air it over & over cause I missed some parts. We just never know what's going on behind closed doors huh! They should been millionaires off the first album. A LESSON LEARNED and passed on to future entertainers for sure.
