Although its been more than 10 years since her fatal car accident, fans still mourn the death of member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC. With filming wrapped on the group’s upcoming biopic, Lisa’s sister, Reigndrop Lopes and former personal assistant, Stephanie Dayton are speaking out about their unhappiness. In a recent interview, both women claim that they were not consulted about the movie–at all. Peep a few excerpts below:
Not being consulted for the TLC biopic:
[RDL]: We didn’t even know when they were shooting. The only way I found out was because a friend of mine was cast as an extra and flew down here, and I happened to go up there with her. We didn’t know anything at all. She [her and Left Eye's mom] was hurt, she was pissed off, and hurt more than anything, but it’s like what can we do? Legally, I don’t think we can do anything, but it’s just more morally, why wouldn’t you involve the family? We’re right here in Atlanta, and we’re open to being involved. And when you don’t reach out, it makes you wonder why, question why. We don’t know why.”
According to Deadline.com, OWN will air six new episodes of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” beginning July 20, and also ordered 10 more episodes of “Raising Whitley” and 12 more of “Life With La Toya.”
