This week, the highly anticipated VH1 biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, aired, immediately trending on social media. And as expected, there were some that were unpleased with how they were portrayed. Who? Ousted member, Crystal Selene Jones. Recently, we gave you the backstory on Crystal’s role in the group and how she was fired from the group and is now writing a tell-all. Welp, that’s not it. After viewing the movie, Crystal is even more bothered by her portrayal. After the show aired, she wrote on twitter:
To sing was not important to me. The truth is. Pivotal players were omitted&I am thankful to have been able to shed some light…
And Tuesday morning, she visited Atlanta’s V-103, giving her side of the story. In short, she explains that she was not fired from the group because she couldn’t sing. She claims that Pebbles removed her from the group because she refused to sign the contract. Watch a few clips of her appearance.
And in other TLC news, the numbers for the flick have came in. It’s no surprise that the biopic became the network’s highest-rated telecast in more than five years. According to Deadline, the 9 PM premiere last night averaged 4.5 million total viewers. The film also was the most tweeted program last night with 1.92 million tweets generated — four times greater than the No. 2 program, Monday Night Football, according to SocialGuide. Sweet!
