The question was asked a few weeks ago, Is Lil Wayne’s Ex (Toya Carter) a Backstabber? after I received information from my blogging buddy Mrs. Grapevine that revealed to the world Joy Bound’s story about how she was robbed of her reality show idea, which originally included She, Tiny, Kandi Burress, & Antonia “Toya” Carter. The story apparently came from a close friend of Joy’s and really didn’t seem too far fetched at all, being that we all know these ladies were close at some point. Well, now Joy herself has come forward and issued an official statement on the matter:
I am happy to leave this matter up to the legal process and God. However, with the recent blogs and the emails I’ve received, I realize it’s important that I say something. I don’t want young ladies to think its cool to be disloyal or strive to become a “baby mama“. First, I’d never advise anyone to have a child out of wedlock I don’t care who the daddy is.
Second; hardwork, honesty, loyalty and respect are the keys to success. They will take you further than the opposite.
Yes I created a reality show and yes I reached out to Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Christine White to do the show. At that point, Toya Carter was already my friend so naturally I approached her first. The show I created was not a frivolous “baby mama” show, rather a chance to redefine that image through a reality show on our lives then spin off to a late night talk show. I’m disappointed to see my vision turned into the stereotype. MORE
