The Chilli Checklist: 'What Chilli Wants' In A Man

Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas believes "I was built to be someone's wife." However, in order to find her husband, he must make the grade. He can't drink. He can't smoke. He can't eat pork, or have more than two baby mamas. He must be fine, with at least a four-pack. Last, but definitely not least, he must have a really huge p...package. What?!? Do men like this even really exist? The beautiful singer/songwriter Chilli seems to think so. Every Sunday night at 10:30 EST, Chilli attempts to find him on her reality series "What Chilli Wants" on VH1. 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. Thomas talks to ESSENCE.com 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. Here's what you had to say: The Observer commented: "What about his integrity, monogamy, life goals, spirituality? C'mon now, she wants a fantasy. The physical plays out over time and at the end of the day, you need someone that's going to be there for you through thick and thin." LB wrote: "She is someone's baby momma herself so how can she not want someone's baby daddy? As long as a man acknowledges and provides for his kids, it shouldn't matter."
