ESSENCE.com: The woman who is assisting you as your matchmaker on the show, Tionna Smalls, how challenging was it working with her?

CHILLI: We are very opposite, but I had to put my trust in her.

Tionna shoots straight from the hip, and all my inner-circle of friends are like-minded about relationships, agreeing more than we disagree.

So to get someone who is totally different from myself to show me another way with another perspective, it was challenging.

ESSENCE.com: Talk about this "Chilli's Checklist," why a list?

CHILLI: A list will keep you from making a lot of mistakes, although I know it's impossible to avoid all of them.

It's like we all go through experiences, and a list helps you remember to smell the trouble as it comes around the corner.

Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas believes "I was built to be someone's wife." However, in order to find her husband, he must make the grade. The "C" in the all-girl group TLC, makes no apologies for her laundry list of standards she calls the "Chilli Checklist," while her matchmaker, author Tionna Smalls provides Chilli with some much-needed assistance in finding a boo.

He can't eat pork, or have more than two baby mamas. Last, but definitely not least, he must have a really huge p...package. Every Sunday night at EST, Chilli attempts to find him on her reality series "What Chilli Wants" on VH1.

The beautiful singer/songwriter Chilli seems to think so.

Thomas talks to about when she created the list, how Usher was instrumental in changing it, and how Floyd Mayweather, even with almost every quality on her list, is just a, um, *cough*...friend.
