Looks like someone was allowed in T.I. and Tiny’s “white room” for her prom day. This fact alone makes this post worthwhile. T.I. don’t let nobody go in there; but when it’s prom time all the stops are pulled out. This weekend, Zonnique Pullins, T.I. and Tiny’s 17 year old daughter got to be an ordinary teenager for a minute when she attended prom.
She was escorted by rapper Rocko’s son, Malik. (You may remember that Rocko is also the former fiance and father of Monica’s two sons Romello and Rodney III.) Apparently, there’s absolutely no love lost and Monica considers Malik her son. See what she tweeted:
Malik later tweeted that he and Monica still have a tight relationship, explaining how he could text her all day and night.
We have to give it up to Miss Zonnique. This dress is too fab! I know some grown women, myself included, who wouldn’t mind wearing this gown. We’re actually a little surprised T.I. let her out the house without trying to throw a shawl over her chest. But she looks cute. The blue hair looks surprisingly good with the outfit and you can never go wrong with a red lip. Werk honey!
What do you think of Zonnique’s outfit? Check out more prom pics on the next page.
A few months ago we reported that Bow Wow was talking slick about Kandi’s decision not to attend Jermaine Dupri’s So-So Def reunion. Though Kandi explained that she had a prior engagement, we knew that there had to be a bigger reason than that to miss out on such a huge moment. Well, in an interview with “Sway in the Morning,” she kept it real and explained why she wouldn’t reunite Xscape during that reunion or any time soon.
On why she missed the reunion
“I did have something else I had to do that weekend. I’m not trying do a reunion. I mean, no offense, but I don’t wanna be faking and have to rehearse together. Tiny and I, we get along great. But, I haven’t really talked to the other ladies in a long time, like long time.”
Kandi explained that Jermaine Dupri really went hard in convincing her to come. And even though Kandi admitted that she has the utmost respect for JD, since he was the man who helped give her her big break, it wasn’t enough to convince her to comeback.
So by now you’re wondering who is the woman that Kandi has the issue with and why?
“Let me just say — because I shouldn’t have to bring up stuff…Our group broke up like 18 years ago. But what I’m pissed off about happened more recent. You get what I’m saying? In the past, Tocha and I used to bump heads, but she’s not really who I’m (really) bothered by. It was Tamika that really pissed me off. She said some things about me. Some of the things she put out there, were straight up lies that she had made up. I was so pissed off because me and her used to be really tight and I just felt like what just what she did–to try to make me look bad to people…Instead of just saying ‘Kandi doing well’, you gon’ make it seem like I screwed my way to the top. And then add more people to the list that never existed, on my list. I’m like ‘No chick, don’t do me like that’. I never do her like that. You know that I mean?”
“I talk to Tiny about it. Well, she had different reasons for not necessarily wanting to do it. But she was just like she didn’t really wanna do it either.”
After she did what she did, she called me, apologized. Since then, she’s called my mom and she was like ‘I wish I could make things right’. But recently she was on the radio, she still never admitted, she still be on her BS ‘I don’t know what’s wrong with her’. Really? You know what’s wrong with me.
So Major And King Have Girlfriends Already!?: See The Season 3 Trailer For “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle”
How can you not love T.I. and his family after two seasons of The Family Hustle? They’re absolutely hilarious, but heartwarming to watch. And despite the “KANG” persona we get to see all the time from T.I. the rapper, it’s nice to see T.I. as the father and head of his household, and doing it oh so well looking after six kids with Tiny. And in this new season of the show, which will premiere on April 8, the Harris family takes Hollywood by storm, goes on a skiing trip (and struggles big time), tries their hand at Nascar and does their usual clowning around from time to time. But a big thing happening in the new season is that the kids are testing the dating pool, including Messiah (see T.I. try and teach him how to do the yawn-and-put-your-arm-around-her move) and Zonnique–who gets the rundown that pretty much no man will ever be good enough. But surprisingly, Major (who turns five this year) and King (nine this year) have found themselves in young love already. I know, crazy right!? Check out the trailer from the new season and let us know what you think. The Harris family is back!
Will you be tuning in? If so, remember to check out the premiere on April 8, 10/9c on VH1.
You know how it is when you’re excited for your friends, sometimes stuff just bubbles over. Stuff that they probably would want you to keep to yourself. And that’s exactly what happened when Tiny was speaking with Hip Hollywood. When they asked her about her bestie, Tamar Braxton’s new bundle, she started doing a little dance in the chair before she dropped the bomb about the sex of the baby.
I know everything about this baby. And I know…I was gonna say what it was. I know the baby’s name. Of course I know what it is, and I’ve seen HIS little face. She has a 4D picture…Oh.
Whoops! Talk about a slip up. At least she didn’t reveal his name. Either way, we’re sure Tamar will manage to forgive her.
So it’s a boy! Vince must be so excited! By the way, has anyone else noticed that boys are a trend with the Braxton sisters? Towanda is the only one with a daughter. Since it’s a boy, Tamar probably won’t have to deal with the smart-mouthed little girl telling her to “get her life,” like we predicted.
Check out the video of Tiny saying a bit too much on the next page.
If you’re already bored with La La’s Full Court Life and don’t have the stomach for the ratchet behavior of Basketball Wives, which is coming back soon, we’ve got the perfect programming for you. The first family of VH1 is back!
Just when you thought you couldn’t get enough of T.I., Tiny and the rest of the humongous pack, the hustling family will be back for another season of T.I. And Tiny’s Family Hustle on VH1 come April. After stalling, VH1 finally decided to pick the show back up for a third season, which is a great idea since the series has helped to make Mondays a ratings winner for the channel and was well-received by viewers for its positivity and humor (who knew T.I. was so funny!?). In the upcoming season, we’ll see the rapper happily getting back into the spotlight after the release of his successful album, Troubleman: Heavy is the Head and his role in Identity Thief, and Tiny staying busy trying to create a new girl group, French Kiss, while still trying to keep the OMG Girlz afloat. Per the usual, with all their business endeavors, and their larger than life family, the rapper and his lady do their best to balance their busy careers and keep their biggest focus on their family at the same time. It’s not easy! Expect big laughs and a bit of fun foolery from the show’s biggest star…King. Don’t front, you know you love that child with his bad behind.
If you’re still down for the fam, be sure to check out season three of T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle when it premieres on Monday, April 8 10PM ET/PT on VH1.
Why You Wanna Go And Do That Love, Huh? 10 Cute Celebs Who Didn’t Need The Plastic Surgery Or Enhancements
Let’s be clear, there are only like two or three people on this list who you could say look “bad” after delving into the world of plastic surgery. And while some might look okay with their enhancements and changes, if you ask us, they looked perfectly fine, if not fabulous, before they decided to mess with the knife, Botox and other things that changed their features dramatically. Sometimes it’s just good to work with what God gave you, even if you have the money to morph yourself.
It’s clear almost every woman in the Braxton clan has had a little somethin’ somethin’ done, but aside from Tamar, every other sister kind of knew when to quit. She doesn’t look bad per se (though some, like K. Michelle for instance, like to say she looks like a Muppet), but baby girl didn’t need the cheekbone changes and other work. And all the make up that her make up artist piles on, along with the big lacefronts, don’t do her true beauty justice.
If you’re a fan of “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle,” you probably saw Tiny zap back into her old Xscape days as she performed one of the dance routines with the OMG Girlz. As you can tell from the above .gif, Tiny was playing no games and she donned her best “this is not a joke” face and hit the dance floor. Showing the girls a thing or two about how to properly get it.
I don’t know about you but I nearly wept when I saw this gif last night. The level of concentration on Tiny’s face is straight comedy.
So now it’s your turn to sound off. Caption this gif of what Tiny is thinking as she’s dancing.
The time has come for a whole new level of ratchetry on TV — or is it? That’s the topic Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and her girls will, appropriately, be tackling on the sneak peek of her new late-night talk show, “Tiny Tonight,” tonight. Joined by Tamar Braxton, Claudia Jordan, and Trina, the ladies will turn to their resident correspondent/Tiny’s hairdresser, Shekinah, to hit the (white) streets of Atlanta and figure out what is truly ratchet. Unfortunately no one understood a word she said so it’s a good thing Tiny gave her own brief definition when introducing the segment, saying:
“When bad decisions and wrong choices get together and make an ugly-a** baby, we call that ratchet.”
Could this be exhibit A?
“Tiny Tonight” debuts tonight at 10pm on VH1. Check out the sneak peek below. Will you watch?
In MN’s Year In Review, we’re counting down our top stories as well as the biggest moments in television, music, movies, and news.
Though you might think slideshows make this site (yes, we sense the shade), it’s the unique essays penned by our team of writers that really make the Madame Noire voice and spark the discourse we enjoy having with you — our lovely readers. Here’s a list of the 10 most-read essays we’ve published this year. Which one’s your favorite?
1. I’ll be honest, I feel like Lala is my celebrity BFF. Last season I only watched her show because it filled a gap somewhere in between my Monday night TV lineup, but after a few episodes I realized she wasn’t boring, she was the type of down to earth, unwaveringly loyal friend, mother, and wife of a pro athlete that I think I would really like in real life. Her show and her personality definitely grew on me. With the premiere of season 2 last night, I was pretty excited to see a group of girls hanging out together, sharing laughs, and catching up—especially after the foolishness that came on before her show—but unfortunately that’s not exactly what I got…Read more.
OK, so maybe we all haven’t been asking this, but as a lover of T.I. I can admit I have been a hater of Tiny. And as my Twitter timeline often shows on Monday nights, and obviously author Shahida Muhammad’s as well, lots of women find themselves asking, out of all the women T.I. could have, why did he choose Tiny?…Read more.
So I caught the latest addition to the Isht that So & So Says meme called Isht that Natural Hair Girls Says and I got a good chuckle out of it because it just reminded me of how sometimes the whole fascination over natural hair gets to be ridiculous…Read more.
A few months ago, I went on a date with a gentleman who really had me scratching my head. When I initially met him, I can recall thinking that he was perhaps more sensitive (aka, feminine) than most of the guys I engage. However, I decided to be nice and at least get to know him a little more before drawing any conclusions. I left my number with him and within a few days he’d arranged to take me to dinner at a restaurant I had been eager to try. While I had resolved to keep an open mind, in my head was the reality that I would need to see some unbridled manliness (whatever that is) during this date in order to be comfortable with seeing him for a second one….Read more.
I went to go see Pariah over the weekend and actually, I really enjoyed it.
The film, which was written and directed by Dee Rees (protégé of Spike Lee’s protégé’), is a coming of age story of Alike, a 17-year-old Black girl from Harlem coming to terms with her own sexual identity as a lesbian and must waver the waters between her conservative mother, played by Kim Wayans, and her contradictory father, played by Charles Parnell. The film has been getting lots of praise for highlighting the invisible voice of black female queers in the community; however, the intense and strained relationship between mother and daughter has such a universal theme, which makes it relatable to just about anyone, who once struggled in their youth…Read more.
Tiny Speaks On Critics: I’m At The Point In My Life Where I Pretty Much Don’t Give A S**t What People Think
Tiny looks like a whole new woman on the cover of Rolling Out magazine this month talking about everything from business to the bedroom. Though these days Tiny is mostly known as T.I.’s wife, she is slowly but surely making her own name for herself (again) with a reality show with her family and a coming late-night talk show on VH1. Rolling Out asked Tiny how she feels about her new projects in light of all the criticisms she receives — and what it’s like to lay up with T.I. every night. Here’s a bit of what she said.
How she handles criticism
I do it with confidence. I believe that confidence is everything for a woman. You just have to be comfortable with who you are and what you bring to the table. I’m at the point in my life where I pretty much don’t give a s— what people think … but if I see something that I don’t like on Twitter and I feel like I want to say something back, I will, because that’s just me. I’m not really quick with my temper, though, and I stay positive and surround myself with positive people. At the end of the day, positivity is the thing that you need the most … that and confidence.
How she deals when she doesn’t feel her prettiest
Again, it’s all about positivity. You’ve got to know that today is just a bad day, and you just have to take it in and keep moving because tomorrow can be a better day. I never let things keep me down, so if it’s a bad moment right now, I will deal with it keep it moving. And if I’m feeling like I’m not looking right, I just don’t take any pictures.
Whether marriage has changed anything between her and T.I.
A lot of people say that things change — and maybe my husband might say something different — but I don’t really see much of a change. I just feel like I’ve been doing some of the same things as a married woman, that I was doing years before … so it’s kind of like continuing on with the papers now. Honestly, I’m just enjoying it. I’m enjoying being called a wife, because it’s different than just being in a relationship … it feels a little better now.
How she felt when T.I. called her his wife for the first time
I was kind of like ”damn, that’s me.” I felt like a lucky lady and I love it every time I hear it. It just does something to me … it sends a signal to my body and tells me to jump all over him whenever possible [laughs].
How to spice up your relationship
You have to try new things and be open and talk about things that you’re interested in. You also have to talk about things that he’s interested in and see if you guys can come to a happy medium, and just get wild … that brings a little something extra to the bedroom.
