Is Antonia “Toya” Carter a backstabber? She seems like a really laid back cool chick, but if you ask Joy Bounds (aka Lyfe Jennings’ baby mama) you may get a earful! Joy was/is part of the baby mama clique in Atlanta, as she’s been hanging out with Tiny for years. If you recall, Kandi Burruss, Joy, Christine White (Luda’s baby moms), Tiny, Toya and possibly Monica were all in discussions about developing their own reality show but Kandi revealed in an Essence article that the idea was scrapped because of an “uneasy disagreement” with the producer.
Now it appears that Joy is mad salty cause everyone’s got a show but her. According to MrsGrapevine, Toya may have manipulated the situation to get all of the other women kicked off the show. She’s even been accused of sleeping with a friend of the producer! Is Toya’s on air sweet image merely a front for the cameras? Joy (and her friends) seem to think so. Check out what they feel is proof of Toya’s backstabbing ways:
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.
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 each other 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 feel for Joy. Everybody’s on top but her…but did Toya really stab her in the back or was she merely a better business woman?
