For those unfamiliar with the ongoing public feud between TLC and the group's former manager Perri "Pebbles" Reid, just know that things have gotten ugly.
Everyone from Ashley Reid (Pebbles' daughter) to original group member Crystal Selene Jones and countless bloggers have had their say on the matter as tempers continue to flare. Now, Sister 2 Sister publisher Jamie Foster Brown is giving her two cents and then some.
In a recent interview with Sirius XM's "Sway in the Morning," Brown told listeners that Pebbles is ready to tell her full story in the magazine's next issue.
"In the next issue [Pebbles] talks about it. She talks about it, Left Eye’s uncle talks about it. I mean, we got everybody in there talking about what happened during that time—in the issue that I’m putting out next," she explained.
Brown also hinted at the mistreatment of late group member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes at the hands of her fellow bandmates, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas. She recalled:
"Left Eye called me, I remember, I was in France. It was 1 o'clock in the morning. I was in Paris and the phone rings. It's my staff and they say, 'Left Eye is on the phone. She doesn't care where you are. She needs to talk to you right now because she's really upset about what the girls are saying about her and what she's doing and she needs to talk to you now!' I had to take a lot of time with Left Eye and when she passed, everybody was telling the mother, 'Oh my God, we'll take care of you. Don't worry.' She didn't hear from anybody.
The mother was so devastated. I was with Tom Joyner as that time, so I booked a cruise for her and her husband. You know, she's married to T-Boz's uncle. Then, after the documentary came out, I had to book them on another cruise. She was devastated. She put Left Eye's assistant Stephanie with me when Left Eye died and said, 'I need for Stephanie to be with you to help you.' So I knew a lot that was going on."
Brown said she was unsure as to why Pebbles kept quite about the controversial television movie, but made it clear that the gloves are coming off once the next issue of Sister 2 Sister hits newsstands.
All this drama for a film that VH1 has described as a "fictionalized portrayal"? Exhausting.
