You went there and since nobody bit, I will!
I don't know if it was Chilli or the screen writers, but the implication that Perri saw Ro as a threat of some sort...a sexual rival perhaps?...is DEF there, from what I saw. After multiple viewings, it amuses me at how many potshots the screen writers actually lobbed at Tionne and esp Ro that they clearly missed. Well we all know they don't read things closely and seem to have limited understanding of what they do read, so....
As I've said many times in this thread, I think Perri is older than she claimed back in da day, so I could DEF see her having issues about Ro's age back then. Lookswise....
Ro was/is merely cute next to the Perri of the late 80s-early 90s, so it wasn't so much a looks things as age thing for me. LA seems to like 'em young, according to the tea.
Anyway, I think the real unspoken issue about LA and Ro (my opinion, not tea) is that they had much more than an "oral moment" but a full blown affair that may have ultimately destroyed LA and Perri's marriage. (And maybe caused an abortion or 2) According to Perri, the TLC thing def caused strain in their house tho she doesn't specify why or in what way. If that's the case, it would def explain why Perri was so hard on her then, played such financial/legal hardball w/ TLC, and why the Reid kids (tho not Aaron) are so hard on specifically her now.
Obviously I don't know if this is true, but I suspect it is. Unlike many here who bitch about the relatives and friends coming out the woodwork, I listened to it all!
The one consistant thing most of them show is anger towards Ro and none towards Tionne. Odd, eh? The thing they all say outright or strongly imply is that Ro shows one face to the world and acts totally diff in private. Given the tea about her promiscuity and her clear self-consciousness about it, I could see her going THERE back then. The Suge Knight disguised as Master P thing showed me she's trying to draw attention away from it. Three guesses why?!
I know fully well she's faking the funk w/ that ridiculous list of hers on her dating show, so why should I think she'd do different here?
At the end of the day, it's her biz who she's slept w/ and some might see it as karma for Perri, but if it's true then it created even more conflicts of interests for this group and may have ultimately cost them on many levels. (Personally I think this LA and Dallas Austin stuff w/ Ro became a major issue between her and Lisa cuz it cost the other two due to conflicts of interest.) Meh...just my take. I'm reading the tea leaves!
One more thing...one reason I think Ro/Tionne/screen writers don't go after LA is because he's yet again their employer. It doesn't pay to bite the hand that's feeding you and maybe that lesson as finally learned!
