Please do not come for Pebbles unless her daughter Ashley sends for you. During this past week the highly anticipated and record-breaking premiere of “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story” movie made its way to our television screens and had many viewers feeling some type of way about the biopic’s antagonist, Perri “Pebbles” Reid. Many of you know that Pebbles was the manager responsible for TLC’s success and ultimately, responsible for their very public bankruptcy, with the girls allegedly receiving a measly $25 stipend during a climatic and successful time in their career. It’s safe to say that the Twitter-sphere was on fire as they proceeded to drag Pebbles through the mud.
Well, Pebbles’ daughter, Ashely Reid, who refers to herself as a “Reformed Hooligan” spoke out recently to say:
“When will people realize that a movie is a movie. Not truth. This is not a true story. It’s meant to entertain… I will defend my family, what I love and what I believe regardless of what anyone has to say.”
But perhaps the most suspicious thing she tweeted was a direct reference to band member Chilli, when the radio personality and photographer directly tweeted Chilli with the words:
“@officialchilli- I cannot WAIT to see you around honey!”
Ok, when will it stop? As adult women, there are so many other forms of getting in contact with one another in order to resolve issues. Public tweets and subliminal threats? That went out of style with meeting for lunch and throwing glasses of water in the face of your “frenemy.” Like they say, there are three sides to every story: his side, her side and the truth. Hopefully this is just a little online banter but in the event that Ashley Reid truly does want closure, she should reach out to the ladies herself.. away from her computer. Any thoughts?
