Rozonda ‘Chili’ Thomas of TLC tells Jim Farber of the New York Daily News that she and Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins are still having troubles accepting the death of bandmate Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes. “I’m still in denial,” says Chili. “I can’t talk about her in the past tense. And I don’t like it when people say, ‘When the accident happened.’ I just say ‘When it happened.'” She also hinted at bitterness towards their Arista Records label. “First, you get all this sympathy… then, right after, it’s ‘Okay back to business,'” Chili explains. “It’s like, ‘Hello? We’re still hurting! We’re not ready to get back to business.'” The full article at nydailynews.com has since been removed or relocated.
