5/28: T.I.’s gal Tameka “Tiny” Cottle signs on to BET reality show

According to Allhiphop.com, T.I.’s long-time girlfriend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle has joined her friend Lil Wayne’s ex Antonio Toya Johnson-Carter on a reality show because really, who doesn’t have a reality show now?

Called “The Tiny & Toya Show,” this will be yet another show of this ilk cropping up based in Atlanta, after “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and BET’s “Keyshia Cole” show and the upcoming spinoff “Frankie & Neffe.”

BET, on its site:

…the ladies will be each starting their very own businesses.

The show will also chronicle how each copes with the legal woes of their respective baby daddies, and seeks to offer each woman an opportunity to define themselves outside of their high profile relationships.

Tiny is a former singer in the band Xscape. She has been engaged for years to T.I. and they have two children. T.I. entered prison for a year this week on a weapons charge.

BET will air a preview special June 15 at 10 p.m. followed by a sneak peek Sunday, June 28 after the BET Awards.

So let me get this straight. Your boyfriend/fiance/baby-daddy has been working all this time and hitting record numbers for sales and you need a job to pay the bills? Drama.

I’m sick of Reality shows!!! Lots of yelling, cussing, and disgust. Can we have something of substance to watch? I’ll bet about 50% of shows are now reality-based. Now , I basically watch what I have DVRed, and spend the rest of my time out and about. TV and radio are going downhill.

lmao. the show will get tons of ratings simply because she’s engaged to tip. no one knows the other chic but she has a baby from lil wayne. i can’t imagine how it will be edited to keep everyone’s attention. but this orlando vs cleveland game is a good one, even though we know the playoffs will come down to lebron vs kobe.

AJC needs to change the headlines on the home page because it refers to her there as TI’s wife when all she is as we know is the babies momma.

She sure does set a fine example for her own daughter, living for years with a guy who has lied and cheated on her but yet won’t marry her.

BET will put anything on the air these days. What a waste of time. When you don’t have talent who can write scripts, just put up a reality show. BET is a joke since Bob Johnson sold it to white people. They just use it to make black people look even more ignorant then they already do in the media.

Tiny & T.I. got MARRIED a few weeks ago (whether for conjugal visits in prison or for her to be able to handle all the finances & business while he’s locked up), but his rep confirmed it. I’m glad she’s at least secured her future with him instead of continuing to have kids & being just a “baby mama”. I’m glad T.I. stepped up & married this girl instead of stringing her like too many guys with money in music & sports due with a ring & a promise that never materializes.
LeBron, Carmello take note…marry the women you’re having these babies with (you already live with them). Most high profile athlets are advised NOT to get married until their career is over.
At least you’ll know her show is for her and not T.I. unless they put a camera in his face in prison.
As for the money aspect, Tiny make your own. Too many women leave their own careers & dreams behind to follow a man, then when they breakup the women have to depend on child support & alimony (fight for the alimony). Kelis and Nas are a perfect example. She’s about to deliver, getting divorced & he’s telling her “pay your own way”. He refuses spousal support, but she’ll get it anyway, it just goes to show how low he is. Sounds like he messed up & can’t deal with her embarrassing him while leaving while she’ still pregnant, so no wife and no son. Kelis should have kept working. Genuine and Sole (another one), she has no career & if they were to break up, same thing.

Not everyone wants a “show.” most people like to keep their dignity, not let it go for a few dollars….Besides facts show that most people who go to those lengths are one step from broke. Why else would you put all your business out on front street for the world to ridicule? No hating here, it’s just my opinion…and if Tiny is married, where’s the ring and the wedding pics?

T.I. & Tiny got married 2 weeks ago in miami. I just seen her the other day and she does have a ring on!

First yall say no one wants to see the drama, then you ask to see pictures of the wedding and I bet yall want to know how he gon hold up in prison…….what’s really going on? Give the show a chance before you react so negatively. Yes, we need more “substance” on the tube, but remember BLACK PEOPLE…….we have to start AT HOME FIRST before white people can take us seriously. TV is NOT our only problem. When they do air positive black shows, what happens????? They get cancelled cause not enough of us are tuned in. Our lives need the drama, so that’s what’s in demand. Poor excuse…but real.

Dee, you said it best WE as black women have to endure SOOOOOOOOOOO much from the kids, the men and especially from OTHER BLACK PEOPLE. Hell, all of us are 1 paycheck away from broke so who the hell are we to JUDGE the next. TINY GET MONEY, BABY!!!!!

FYI-Getting married just because you have kids by someone is not always the best choice. Careless and immoral, yes, but one thing you can say bout TI and Tiny, they got something a lot of people missing out of they relationship……..TRUE LOVE AND LONGEVITY. As long as they keep it moving for the benefit of their kids, then everything else will fall in place.

Tameka- CONGRATS on the new baby and the new show!!!!!

This board is alot like ATL. A variety of views. But the bottom line is that some people will do anything for money. If Tiny is married to a milionaire, with a ring and all, then why she got to put her business out there on a reality show. If you are apart of that hood mentality then yes you agree with Tiny and say, get that money boo. But for those us who are concerned about the future of our race for the children’s sake we see this for what it is. A group of white people, yes BET is run by white people even though you don’t see them, who are putting monkeys on the screen for all y’all to imitate.

i agree with GG – the years aren’t agreeing with Tiny at all. she used to be really really fine..and her voice —OMG – she sounds like a hungover witch or something…i give TI all the credit for doing the right thing & marrying her though…hopefully he remain faithful.

this comment goes to Mark–I guess there are NO ignorant white people eH?

I think the motive behind Tiny’s move to a reality show is for T.I. to see her on T.V. She probably won’t get a chance to visit him very often since he is out of the state,also it gives her something to do to make time go by.Tiny’s pictures of her and T.I. kids are posted on the internet so maybe he has access to a computer while in prison.She is a “ride or die” chick to the end whether he marries her or not because noboonelse wants her ugly ass. T.I. knew he was headed for prison so he needed Tiny..the truth will come out if he will be with this chick once his time is served.T.I. you don’t have to worry about your piglet,nobody would want her.Toya you make the piglet look bad(lol).

For everyone who made a negative comment about the show, every single one of you will watch it. If you wasn’t going to watch it, you would have not posted a comment about the show. You know you can’t wait until it comes on so you can watch it. You’ll probably counting the days.

Hey Mark, see boo.. you’re ignorant. Just to comment on the Tiny and Toya show,I would love to see the show. Tiny appears to be an interesting character with the voice and the size,not trying to be funny but I think she will be the “star” of the show (lol). Toya is very pretty and the guys will probably be interesting in seeing her,sorry Tiny.

It is just like black people to put others down.There is nothing wrong with Tiny she is not ugly and obviously she looks good or she wouldn’t have gotten T.I. I think all of you hating people are very IGNORANT and I bet the majority of you don’t look so hot your damn self. But you all saying she is broke? If she is or if she isn’t it is not and will never be your business really so why even comment on that.Second most of you don’t have anything better to do that is why you are on here reading articles and commenting on them so who are you people? no one knows but everybody knows Tiny and that is why you are surfing the web looking up her business! Now don’t you all feel stupid!
