Rozando "Chilli" Thomas talks to Essence


Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas sat down with Essence magazine recently to discuss TLC being the best selling female group, Usher and wife Tameka, being called a home-wrecker, in Lisa’s death, and what she currently working on. Here are some excerpts from the interview.

ESSENCE.COM: There were rumors that you were a home wrecker and dating CNN’s T.J. Holmes while he was married. Is that true?

CHILLI: No, let’s clear this up right now. T.J. Holmes was divorced and had been divorced. It wasn’t a situation where he was going through a divorce and still married. I would never date a man that is legally separated or tied to another woman….
