Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, who rose to fame as a member of the R&B girl group TLC, is firing back at Atlanta-based gossip blogger Sandra Rose for suggesting the singer is gay.

Earlier this week, Rose posted on her blog: “Former TLC member T-Boz spent her New Year weekend bowling with the Traxx Girls lesbuns at 10 Pin Alley at Atlantic Station. Oh, you didn’t hear that T-Boz dumped her linebacker boyfriend Takeo Spikes and tipped over to the other side? Well, you didn’t hear it from me.”

T-Boz was quick to respond — and it took four tweets to do it because of that pesky 140-character limit.

T-Boz tweeted: “do you want me sandra rose...is that it boo? don't try to make me be on your team. I'm strickly dickly”

“I had a great time hosting the party for the guys and the girls and I'm secure in my sexuality enough 2 host parties for anyone...

“…and I was workin’ bitch.

“I have a daughter so watch what you say and don't make up lies.”

T-Boz most recently appeared on last year’s season of Celebrity Apprentice. The 39-year-old singer is expected to release her long-awaited debut solo album in 2010.
