    I was just in the BET website casting my votes and read the following:

    Posted June 29, 2004 -- Since the 2002 death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, the pop group TLC has been struggling to regain the spotlight. That may change if a new FOX reality show surrounding the now two-member group gets off the ground.
    The proposed idea, which Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas have already agreed to, will see singers compete to become the third member of the group.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    idk it aint gonna be the same- i think its worth a try- but wat if they do worse - cuz when fanmail came out they were doin so great, but around the time she passed they was comin - and now that she's gone- the fans that are devoted will buy their albums- but u cant replace lisa- she was somin else( in a good way)

    maybe they jus need money or somin- wit all tbox going threw wit gettin a divorce from her husband who be threatenin to kill her-

    idk think its attn- cus they both been in the news lately wit they personal lives.....we'll jus have to c

    i thot they retired tho?

    Bad idea. :nono: I think they should make an album with just the two of them. Don't try to replace Left-Eye. I know for me, I hate when groups replace members like that's suppose to make it better. We all know Left-Eye is gone....don't replace her. These two are still very talented and they should make a record with just those two by themselves. I think fans would accept that more than a cheap substitute. Plus, doing it on a reality show makes it look like they're using her death as a gimic to make money......not cool. :puke2:

    I have mixed feelings about this because I really want to see the sisters come up again. I don't think groups fail when they replace a deceased group member. A lot of older groups have done this; for example The Temptations.
    :teach: The only reason I would oppose this is because the name of the group is TLC (T-Boz, Left-Eye, Chilli) and you really cannot change that even though you find someone with a name that starts with an "L". I have to agree with Kente I think they should do one good album with just T-Boz and Chilli. Mabey they can name them selves T-Chilli or C-Boz :lol: . They might want to get a new mwmber because it feels akward without Lisa, but they are not the only ones the fans feel her absence as well.
