Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas of TLC are launching "Dialogues: Education and Treatment for a Well-Planned Future," an HIV/AIDS education effort. As paid spokespersons for the initiative, Watkins and Thomas have already done various TV network interviews and plan to appear in a public service announcement next year. A decade ago, Watkins and Thomas, along with late TLC member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, sported condoms on their clothes to encourage women to protect themselves. TLC's 1995 hit "Waterfalls" also addressed the danger of HIV. "We can't talk enough about it," Watkins said of CDC statistics showing that 47 percent of new HIV cases are African Americans, and 30 percent of new cases are women.
