TLC

The popular '90s girl group was immortalized on the small screen in the VH1 original movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. Released in October 2013, the movie saw rapper Lil' Mama, singer/actress KeKe Palmer and actress Drew Sidora portray the lives of the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, respectively, to an onslaught of critics. What attracted the most attention, however, was the cutthroat and unreasonable persona that was attached to group creator Perri "Pebbles" Reid. She is now suing the network for damages.
