There will be a slight change when the hit BET show “Tiny & Toya” returns next season – namely, no more Tiny.
The later half of the duo, Antonia "Toya" Carter, has confirmed in recent interviews that the show as it was will not be returning. The series followed the lives of Carter, ex-wife of superstar rapper Lil’ Wayne, and Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, the fiancée of rapper T.I.
Instead, Carter said she'll be featured in a spin-off titled "Toya's Family Affair," which will focus on her life, her daughter with Lil' Wayne and her relationships, though Cottle will make guest appearances.
“We just decided to kind of part ways because she is doing her own thing with her music career, her kids and she’s about to get married,” Carter said in a recent interview with radio/TV personality Ms. Drama. “Some things you have to just keep private and I understand that as a friend.”
Carter hinted that her new show might possibly include her interactions with some of the mothers of Wayne’s other children.
“Me, Lauren [London], Nivea and Sarah, we kind of always get together to keep the kids together so they can know each other,” Carter said. “The situation is not ideal but at this point it is what it is and we try to make the best of it.”
The original show was popular: According to MultiChannel.com, the second season finale drew 1.7 million viewers, making it at the time the network's second most watched finale of 2010.
