Is Tionna Smalls Wasting Her Time Trying To Find A Man For Chilli?
Here we are, season two of VH1′s What Chilli Wants. In case you haven’t noticed, the fact that there’s a season two to begin with means that Chilli has found no man. I kind of went in on the pint-sized TLC member for even participating in a show that really exposes her as nothing more as a shallow middle aged woman whose expectations are probably too high—even for her. So after watching the first episode of season two, I’ve come up with a new outlook on Chilli.
Not only is she shallow, she is also a tad bit too naive.
Season one touched on her relationship with Floyd Mayweather Jr. It appears to be a “friends with benefits” relationship that works for Floyd, but not so much for Chilli. She expressed her adoration for Mayweather as Tionna Smalls scrambled trying to find her the perfect mate. But she was looking right past the fact that Mayweather was the apple of Chilli’s eye the entire time.
So, even after a few near wins, Chilli enters season two back where she started—single and lonely. Only now, Tionna has figured out why Chilli can’t find a man. It was right under her nose the whole time—Floyd Mayweather Jr. Though it appears to be no fault of his own, Chilli has become sucked into the vacuum of charm that Mayweather offers. She pines over this man as if he was the last guy on earth. He doesn’t even fit her laundry list of wants in a man. But alas, she is putty in his hands.
The problem here is that this has become a massive roadblock in Tionna’s job to find Chilli a woman. Chilli shuts down every man she’s with because she wants Floyd…bad.
But the problem is that Floyd Mayweather doesn’t seem to have any interest in becoming her man. His comments spell out everything he’s trying to say: “I dig you, but not like that and I’d rather stay in the friends with benefits zone.”
Every single comment painfully spells this out to Chilli, but you can’t make her see through this smokescreen.
Honestly, she’s too damn old to be falling for this trick. Tionna is trying to do her job in finding Chilli a man, but as long as Mayweather remains in the picture, her job is moot. However, we’re pretty sure that VH1 will get rid of Mayweather if Chilli waits too long and viewers voice their disapproval in her foolishness.
The only person getting the shaft in this ordeal is Tionna. Outside of making some extra loot, Tionna really has no place until Chilli gets her life figured out. Hopefully we don’t have to watch her wrestle with these decisions.
