If you haven't heard already, Chilli's new reality show What Chilli Wants will makes its debut next month on VH1 (Sunday, April 11, at 10:30 p.m.). I looked into my archives and realized that this show has been two years in the making! LOL! Better late than never, right? And for those of you who're thinking that her show is going to be in the same lane as Flavor of Love or For the Love of Ray J., think again. There will be no scenes of random guys slobbing her down (yall know Chilli don't play that!) or scrapping with one another like a bunch of clowns for a chance at some one-on-one time with her. Instead we'll see Chilli enlist the help of relationships expert Tionna Smalls to find love. Smalls, in turn, brings Chilli's celeb pals -- including TLC partner Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Missy Elliot -- on board for insight into What Chilli Wants.

Anywho, Chilli talked about her new show and why she is so picky and finicky when it comes to men in Upscale magazine and say what you will about her 'checklist' but one thing's for sure: Chilli has grown mentally and spiritually; therefore, it's understandable why she refuses to tolerate the same bullsh*t that she once dealt with back in the day when she was younger with men who shall rename nameless! LOL! In the meantime, check out the excerpts from her interview below:
CHILLI ON WHY WOMEN SHOULD HAVE A "MEN" CHECKLIST & HOW SHE REMAINS TRUE TO HERSELF: It's good to have standards. You can have your list, and whatever is on your list is realistic. I have a super duper long list and everything I have on there is realistic and workable. I think men need to understand that...I wear my feelings on my sleeve. Whether I want people to see it or not, I'm very true to myself and what I want. If I feel myself about to cry I'm not about to hold back my tears. I think it benefits everybody to not hold in your emotions. Stress is a killer...I am a real solid chick. Over the years people have always told me I 'm nice, because I am, but at the end of the day, I know what I want. I can be stern when I need to be."

CHILLI ON HER PERSONAL CHECKLIST & WHY SHE STICKS TO HER STANDARDS: "There are so many!! A guy has to be a Christian, he has to be physically fit, he has to have his looks on point, to my liking anyway, he has to be a non-drinker, a non-smoker, charming, funny...just to name a few. I know we only have so much time for this interview....You just have to have standards. When I have compromised my standards, it didn't get me anywhere. It caused extra headaches and pain. You have to make compromises, but when it comes to my standards, I stick with it."
