*Chili needs to find love once again, so she’s getting ready to start up the next  season of her VH1 series, “What Chili Wants.” She and her partner in crime, Tionna Smalls, are going to be gearing up to test the men who are lined up for a date with Chili.

The new season premiere’s Sunday, January 2, 2011 at 9:30pm.

“Just shy of 40, Chilli is consumed by a desire to have another child and time is definitely working against her,” VH1 says in a statement. “This time around, Chilli’s not only looking for the perfect man, she’s also looking for a potential husband and father.”

The statement continues, “In the second season of ‘What Chilli Wants,’ Tionna takes to the road on a nationwide search to focus on ‘high value’ targets that will not only turn Chilli’s head, but open her heart as well,” VH1 states. “As a result, various encounters and hot chemistries ensue as Chilli’s dates take her up and down the eastern seaboard; from Miami, where she puts things in high gear with a dynamic Indy racecar driver; to New York, where a head-turning Swedish model shows her he’s much more than just a pretty face.”

The statement goes on to  say …

“However, looming in the background is an old flame with whom Chilli has for years been on the cusp of a real, romantic relationship – but continually let down by his lack of commitment. Now, much to Tionna’s dismay, all seems to be forgiven when he shows up in Atlanta to spend some quality time with Chilli. That said, is this old flame for real and ready to step up to a real relationship? And in the end, will Chilli finally open her heart and let someone in?”
