The True Story Behind BET Reality Show Tiny & Toya; Toya Sleeping With Producer’s Friend?
WARNING: Remember there are two-sides to every story, and Antonia Carter has not addressed any of these rumors. So until then, they are just rumors…Monica warned us on twitter that some snakes were coming to get Toya…CLICK HERE FOR PART TWO
One of my loyal readers Funkardashian, yes I do I have a few, sent me an e-mail explaining the drama behind the scenes of the Tiny & Toya show. All the drama seems to revolve around one central character, and there are some serious claims made against Antonia Carter (Toya). Hold on, before you say it’s all made up, apparently there is proof if it comes down to it. There are two-sides to this story, and it’s time you finally hear the other side.
We all know that Kandi Burruss of Xscape was suppose to be on that show and was cut, but we don’t know exactly why, except that there was a falling out with the producer. This is what Kandi had to say about the matter back in July:
I was supposed to be on the ‘Tiiny & Toya’ show along with our friend Joy, Lyfe Jennings’s ex-fiancée, For whatever reason, the producer and Joy had an uneasy disagreement during the first meeting that I was unable to attend and he simply decided to do the show with Tiny and Toya. I was disappointed because I was looking forward to getting into reality television… [Source]
Well I was informed that it all started with a woman named Joy Bounds. Joy Bounds in case you don’t know is Lyfe Jennings “baby mama”. Apparently, Joy came up with the concept for a reality show that included Tameka Cottle (Tiny), Toya, Kandi Burruss, Joy Bounds, and Christine White (Luda’s baby mama). Word is Toya got all the other women kicked off the show through some shady measures. I’m told she was sleeping with a friend of the producer, and Toya’s on air sweet image was just a front for the cameras. The following is part of the message that I received:
I have an entire page about how it was Joys idea to do reality show but it was to be like a talk show. She actually came up with idea and the ladies. That’s why it’s never been explained how Antonia and Tiny became friends; it was Joy who was the mutual friend of the ladies. Also Christine White (Luda baby mama) was suppose to be in with them but she and Toya had a falling out.
I don’t want to say that Joy is beefing because she’s a great girl but Toya is always calling out people on hatin’ and being snakes when she knows she was hatin’ on Joy. Joy and Toya were like sister.
It’s sad in relation to Joy. Joy is the one that brought them all together. Toya was dating one of the producer’s friends during production. lol! Honey she’s not all that NICE. Do u remember Kandi saying that Joy and the producer had a fallin out and the next day Joy and Kandi was cut from the show? Well that’s why.
Okay ma, let me tell you Joy knew Tiny first! Take a look back at pics on SandraRose of Tiny’s baby shower Joy was there not Ms Toya. Joy brought these ladies together. It’s hard for her. I mean like joy is depressed. She really loved Toya, but Toya did her wrong.
Wait, there is more. The messages got so long that I was sent a follow-up e-mail that goes into more details. Apparently MTV was also interested in this reality show, but Toya feared the white audience would not understand her culture, and think she was stupid. It just keeps getting better, keep reading…
The 2 first met couple of years ago and quickly took to one another because they were pretty much going through the same thing bad relationship with celebrity men. The two became friends fast. Joy decided to start up a show along with Toya the she (joy) recruited christine white and Tiny. Joy went out and found Christine and Tiny for the reason of doing a show. “Toya knows all of this.” They would have meetings at eachother houses. The 4 of them came up with an idea to do a late night talk show then they decided to do the reality show to jump start the talk show. Toya fell out with Christine. So Christine decided to step out the picture(You know Ms Christine got her own she because shes an attorney). Toya and Tiny really wanted 4 ladies thats how Kandi got involved. All four ladies met with Bet producer but Joy wasnt feelin right about how he wanted her character to act (crazy) so Joy and the producer bumped heads.So they flew to NYC to meet with another production company at MTV. They were very excited and wanted the show. They sent their deal to the ladies attorney and immediately started reaching out to networks. So within weeks Oxygen, Bravo and Oprah’s network O, wanted a meeting. But, while Joy was working hard trying to put these meetings together, Toya said she didnt want to sign with the MTV company because they’re white and she felt they might make her look stupid, which Joy realize now was just some game because Toya was still talking to the BET producer and dating his friend who were telling her that she didnt need Joy, and that nobody knew who Lyfe was, etc. In the end Joy was stabbed in the back by Toya and left out of everything. Best of my knowledge the two did speak on the matter after the show aired and Toya didnt have much remorse.. Joy is deeply sadden and was left depressed in losing a friend and her ideas. right now Joy remains in her relationship and caring for her two lovely sons. she is still wanting to get into reality tv so she is working on more ideas.
I don’t know what to say except, this does paints Toya in a new light.
