A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show reinforces the idea that a woman needs a man to be complete. It also sometimes reduces men to meat -- talking about how big their muscles or genitals are.
Positive Role Models
In contrast to some other reality show characters, Chilli seems relatively tame. She wants to get married and even though she sometimes seems a little desperate to do so, she maintains high standards for her match -- asking for someone who doesn't drink or smoke, who is spiritual, and who doesn't have kids by more than two women.
Violence & Scariness
Sometimes things get slammed across tables and thrown on the floor during heated arguments.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Contains lots of flirting and strong sexual innuendo. Tionna occasionally touches men in subtly inappropriate ways to check their muscle build and size of their genitals. There are frequent (and often crude) conversations about a man's penis size. Chilli will only date someone who has had children with two or less women. Scenes of Chilli's music videos, photo shoots, and publicity moments sometimes feature her in tight fitting and midriff-bearing clothing.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series -- which focuses on R&B singer Chilli's efforts to find a man to marry -- contains lots of strong sexual innuendo, including some crude references to male genitalia, most of which is bleeped) and strong vocab ("damn," "ass"; words like "dick" and "f--k" are also bleeped). Chilli references her belief in God often. Cast members drink wine and cocktails during meals and at bars. Arguments sometimes lead to things being roughly shoved off of tables. The dating advice book, Girl, Get Your Mind Right! is featured.
Is It Any Good?
The series offers a look at some of the challenges celebrity (and even some non-celebrity) women may face when hitting the dating scene. Unfortunately, Chilli's focus on finding a husband seems a little bit desperate, especially when she is pursuing him in front of a camera. Her need to find one also reinforces some common stereotypes about women needing men to be happy.
It's definitely voyeuristic, but the overall show is milder than other reality shows that deal with similar subjects. Chilli's personal boundaries, which motivates her to date men who do not smoke, drink, and who have a sense of spirituality, help make it a bit more positive. Chilli fans will definitely be drawn to it, while others who like this sort of thing will probably find it reasonably entertaining.
