The interview that everyone was waiting for has happened. Perri ‘Pebbles’ Reid, the woman presented as a thieving, manipulative tyrant in the hit Vh1 biopic ‘The TLC Story’ appeared on The Wendy Williams Show to discuss her “character” in the film. Reid, a self-described visionary, confirmed rumors that TLC group member Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas had an affair with her then-husband L.A. Reid. She also claimed that Vh1 sent her a letter stating that the representation of her character in the film was “fictional” even though they marketed the story as “true.” Reid kept reiterating that she did not address TLC’s claims previously, due to a signed confidentiality agreement to which she is bound from a settlement with TLC years ago. Check out Perri ‘Pebbles’ Reid below, and her now infamous daughter Ashley, as she somewhat tells her version of what happened and if she will indeed sue Vh1.
