The list, albeit short, continues to grow of those unpleased with the VH1 biopic, Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story. To date, we’ve heard rumblings from Crystal Jones (an original TLC member) and Pebbles (real name Perri Reid), one of the original members of TLC’s management team, who were not a fan of how they were portrayed in the film. So who’s next? Reigndrop Lopez, the sister of the late TLC member Left Eye is speaking out. This week, she visited with Atlanta radio station, V-0103, sharing that neither she or her family feel that Left Eye was portrayed accurately. In short, Reigndrop says that her sister was not as selfish and egotistical as she was portrayed. Check out a few excerpts below.
I thought about it, but I thought about their reaction and I know that they would not let it happen.
Well, I would say as a whole no…because it does not show Lisa’s true character…it just pulls out some negative aspects like the drinking and it’s over done…and it just shows that she’s a selfish person…and pretty much stuff her way. And that’s not how Lisa was…Lisa was someone who would give you the shirt off her back…She was a very spiritual person….She was very, very intellectual…There was a reason behind what she did….She didn’t just do something because she wanted it her way….
My mom did not watch the movie..She did not want to watch..I was actually privy to sneaking and get the script without them knowing…The stuff she was hearing, she didn’t want to see the movie…Yes, me and my brother…
I think it was a combination of both…she wanted to express herself…in the way that she would feel comfortable…and she couldn’t really do that in TLC…
No, evidently we don’t have a say. They came to us and got us to sign off on her likeness…and that was pretty much it.
I would imagine we are..I mean it seems like we would be…I’m pretty sure we are…I think we are, that’s what I’m saying.
I think it would’ve been nice to know who was playing Lisa…we found out online from the fans.
Umm, yeah, I don’t really wanna talk about that but I was there and I was in the accident…it was just a horrible scene.
