EBT is handing out reality shows like free swine flu masks at the health department. The special piglet lady in Clifford’s eye and Lil’ Wayne’s ex-wife will make plenty of worthless hoes jealous from their hometown [insert a neck roll here at your own discretion] when they show off their extensive handbag collection on the new reality show Tiny and Toya.
TINY AND TOYA is BET’s provocative, new half-hour docu-drama chronicling the lives of Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Antonia “Toya” Carter – two dynamic, young women immersed in the craziness of the hip-hop world, but striving to find inner-strength, peace and purpose.
And then I exhaled!
On the surface, their real-life story plays out like an urban fairytale – both women falling in love with two of hip hop’s most successful princes (T.I. and Lil’ Wayne) and living the life of the rich and famous.
Set in the heart of Atlanta, against the backdrop of the multi-billion dollar music industry, TINY AND TOYA follows the journey of two best friends overcoming their struggles to discover who they really are, from the inside out. They are tired of being defined by others (in the shadow of their high-profile men) and are determined to rely on each other and the strength from within to find their purpose and build a brighter future for themselves and their families.
Each episode will give the audience an inside look into Tiny and Toya’s lives. They take us on an exciting rollercoaster ride in search of independence and a quest to set the record straight. We watch them flip the script and create new business ventures of their own. They will be faced with real choices that will potentially change their lives and the lives of those around them forever. We learn why this magnetic and mesmerizing duo won the hearts of T.I. and Lil’ Wayne, as they win over ours.
Though the stakes are high, it’s their unique bond as women, mothers, “sisters” and friends that will ultimately pull them through. [Press release]
Tiny and Toya premieres Tuesday, June 30 at 10 PM/9C.
