Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, a member of the R&B group TLC, has landed a new reality show on… wait for it… TLC! Totally T-Boz will follow T-Boz, 42, from Atlanta to L.A., where she'll attempt to reestablish her music career.
“This series will open the door into T-Boz’s struggles and successes, and the people who are there to support her as she works to make her dreams come true all over again,” TLC's GM Amy Winter says.
This will be T-Boz's third reality show. In 2005, T-Boz and fellow band mate Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas starred in R U The Girl on UPN. Also, T-Boz appeared on Celebrity Apprentice in 2009.

Somewhere in PA… Kate Gosselin is weeping into her Cheerios, wishing she had a music career to resurrect.
Are Simon Cowell and Will. i. am searching for the next Steve Jobs?
Yes! The X Factor judge and Black Eyed Peas frontman are collaborating on a new competition reality show that, surprisingly, has nothing to do with music. Instead, they will be searching for technology-smart entrepreneurs.
"We're working on a project called X Factor for Tech, and it's going to be out of this world," Will. i. am says. "Singing and performance create a couple of jobs. But this will create lots."
The premise of X Factor for Tech reminds me of ABC's Shark Tank. On Shark Tank, five business "sharks" listen to pitches from budding entrepreneurs, and then they either pass or bid on the idea/product.
Will. i. am continues, "It's about getting in touch with youth and giving them a platform to express themselves, whether that’s in science or mathematics."
