Monday night’s premiere of VH1’s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story received record ratings
The biopic became VH1’s highest-rated telecast in more than five years, drawing 4.5 million viewers! Deadline.com reported that CrazySexyCool is the No. 1 original cable movie this year and was Monday night’s most tweeted program.
The movie even won the praises of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes’ sister, Reigndrop Lopes:
“It would have been nice if Lisa’s family would have been invited to take part in this journey of making the TLC movie. Honestly, I think it would have added depth to Lisa’s on screen character. I think Lil Mama did a good job at portraying my sis. She did her homework and studied Lisa. As a fan, I know it was important for Lil Mama to represent Lisa correctly–and she did just that! Although the script didn’t allow her to bring Lisa’s true character to light. She did the best with what she had to work with. All the girls did a good job!”
