Tiny and Toya's Premiere

The basement at Straits, was filled with friends and family all anticipating the Premiere of "The Tiny and Toya Show" which started promptly at 10pm on BET. The show is based on Antonia “Toya” Johnson-Carter and Tameka "Tiny" Cottle. Tiny and Toya is said to chronicle the lives of “two dynamic, young women immersed in the craziness of the Hip Hop world, but striving to find inner strength, peace and purpose.”

There was laughter and sad moments as the show revealed some interesting facts about the pairs families. Toya went to New Orleans to find her drug addicted mother, whom she had not talked to in awhile and that Tiny's father had Alzheimer's. Her mother helps her out with her children and you can see they are very close; it showed how tight her family is and that her mother is still her #1 fan! You could see that the two friends are extremely close to their daughters as well as they shared an intimate conversation about boys at Tiny's house in her daughters room.

In the premiere the girls had "A Girls Night Slumber Party" in which Tiny asked if the women could be a stay at home mom, to make a long story short. She aired that T.I doesn't want her to work; Her body language though read that she is happy and also sad about the idea! Though she says she loves her relationship and you have to take the good with the bad, weighing out what is more important your career or your relationship! Toya stated that she was wanting a man, "not a piece a man" but she would take "a piece of a man" over NO man at all! Others chimed in saying that it's hard to find someone in Atlanta etc. but never stated any valid reasons.

Overall, to me the show is going to be a hit because people always want to be in the know! People will tune in to see how they live and see the issues that they have to endure in their busy lives!I assume that weekly the show will get rave ratings/reviews, plenty of blog write up's and TiVo's will be set for 10pm!

Antonia “Toya” Johnson Carter is a native of the downtown area of New Orleans, Louisiana. She is a product of an environment that has truly shaped who she is. Toya is the child of a drug-addicted mother and an absent father. At an early age, she was separated from her siblings and shuffled from one family member to the next, never really feeling a sense of love or belonging. Despite her difficult upbringing, Toya went on to forge a new and exciting path. Toya graduated from Ambramson Senior High School and went on to college, where she majored in pre-medicine.
