Zonnique Pullins,Tiny’s eldest daughter from her previous relationship with Zonnie-Zebo Pullins and T.I.’s stepdaughter, was arrested at an Atlanta airport yesterday.

According to an Atlanta CBS affiliate, Zonnique was arrested and charged with carrying a weapon through security at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.

At around 10 pm, the former OMG Girl was attempting to get through the security lane, when the x-ray machine detected something in her purse. That something was a 380 Ruger pistol and a clip with five rounds.

She told authorities that she had a weapons permit. But police could not locate it and she was placed under arrest and taken to the Clayton County Jail.

She was released at 2:09 a.m. on Friday.

Later, Zonnique’s cousin issued this statement about the incident.

My boo got the cutest mugshot in the game. Let me just clear a couple things up for you guys . Zonnique did get caught with her registered weapon but like most of us she just forgot it was in her really big purse. We were taught in my family that people are crazy out here and carrying a small gun to protect yourself is what’s needed . With the late shootings and death of a pop star all in Orlando just this week , I think it’s very appropriate that she carries a gun just not to the airport maybe lol. But my girl is home and good so please don’t start with the ignorant rumors , she was home and handled before you even heard about it. Zonnique has great parents that made sure she was okay from the moment she was caught. Not all celebrities keep security on them 24/7 they have to protect themselves just like regular people and we all have learned even security can’t always protect you . Her mugshot is still cute as hell lol

Easter weekend brought Clifford “T.I.” Harris and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris more than chocolate eggs and some Peeps. The 40-year-old singer and reality star welcomed a baby girl on Saturday, March 26th nearly a month early. Despite rumors that T.I. was unable to witness his baby girl’s birth because of a scheduled show, Tiny later released a statement confirming that the entire family was present when Lucky 7 made her grand entrance.

Yesterday, March 26th, at 2:58PM we welcomed a beautiful baby girl that weighed in at 5lbs.

In true Harris fashion, our baby girl made us all HUSTLE, making a surprise early entrance.

While we expected her to arrive around April 20th, our PERFECT baby girl decided March 26th was the right time for her DEBUT.

My husband, Tip Harris, went from the stage right to the plane from his show in Las Vegas and luckily, made it to Atlanta with time to spare. Our whole clan was together to see our beautiful healthy baby girl make her way into the world. Just the way I like it!!

We are looking forward to more exciting times with our #Lucky7.

Congratulations to the Harris family!

Is This Petty? After Four Years And A Baby, He Still Won’t Post Pictures Of Me On His Social Media

We’ve talked in the past about how petty it is or isn’t to allow social media happenings to put a dent in your relationship. But who are we kidding? It’s 2016, and social media plays a significant role in the way we communicate and operate. Therefore, it’s no surprise that our habits online can affect our companions.

For instance, we received a message in the MN email from a woman wondering whether or not she was overreacting for being bothered by her long-term boyfriend’s failures to share images of her, or even of them together, on his social media. Specifically, his Instagram. “We’ve taken studio family photos together that I’ve posted on Instagram and Facebook. But when I go to his pages, he doesn’t put them up,” she said. “It would be one thing if he didn’t really use his accounts like that, but he posts random sh-t almost daily. It’s disrespectful.”

She went on to say that he might share an image of her if they’ve taken a photo with his friends or with members of his family at special events (a.k.a., group photos), but nothing about them as a couple, no pictures of their child, no birthday shoutouts or anniversary love. She doesn’t get it.

She has asked him why he, in her mind, tries to hide her and their daughter, but he just says that he doesn’t want to put too much of his private life out there. The way he sees it, not only is it no one’s business, but it could be “dangerous.”

I mean, not everyone is a big fan of putting their children out there or their spouses. But there’s something weird about that when you’re willing to expose so much else about yourself. Could he be attempting to paint a single image of himself?

But a lot of people do it. Like famous rappers for instance. Despite having had a television show featuring his wife and kids, T.I. rarely posts any pictures of Tiny. Out of all those images from their baby shower, he only posted one on Instagram, and it was of himself with Tiny and all their children. And that maternity shot Tiny shared last week? He didn’t put it up.

And then there’s Fabolous, who we all know is in a relationship with Emily Bustamante. And we are aware from her time on Love and Hip Hop that it took him forever to claim her publicly. And yet, after two kids, years together and more, he also rarely shares images of himself with her. And when he does, the captions are aimed more at those who question the lopsided nature of their relationship, than they are about her and his love and affection for her.

Maybe Tip and Fab are just trying to hold on to the image they try and convey in their music, which is that they’re available. But considering that we all know good and well they’re not, and that they post multiple times a day on social media, it’s always been a little weird that the leading ladies in their lives aren’t really featured on their accounts.

In everyday life, though, some men just aren’t that open about a lot of personal stuff, and I can understand that. Not every woman is sharing a picture of her significant other consistently either. Some people just don’t believe that type of stuff needs to be put on public display for folks to see and pick apart. And maybe, in the minds of those who keep their personal relationships out of public view, it’s more important that a significant other knows that they’re part of the bigger picture than to hold so much value in being front and center in an Instagram picture. So what I’m trying to say is no, I don’t think this situation is worth questioning your relationship over. Because it’s important for those who matter to know who you love, not the world.

However, it is interesting when only one party in a relationship is open, publicly that is, about the love they have for the other. Of course, that doesn’t mean the other party doesn’t love them too, or is living foul. But it sucks that the person who has held you down, and in this woman’s case, brought your child into the world, can’t get some acknowledgement. And yet, your car, your new shoes, and the errands you run, can…

#noshadenotea

But as always, that’s just my opinion. Is it petty that he doesn’t post pictures of her on social media? Or is it petty that she’s upset by it?

How Important Was It For You To Be And Feel Sexy During Your Pregnancy?

When my sister was expecting her first child, and we were preparing for her baby shower a few years ago, she pulled out a few options for dresses and laid them out on my mother’s bed. There my mother and I stood, waiting to see what she had in mind. One option was a very loose dress that would leave her entire back exposed, and the other, a tight dress in a burnt orange with some glittery heels and big baubles. It was definitely my sister’s style. But not my mom’s. My mother didn’t think the looks were proper.

“I don’t know why women like to wear tight clothing to have so much attention on their stomach,” she said. “This isn’t the time to really dress the way you always do and try to be overly sexy. That’s not what this time of your life is about.”

And yet, more and more women are opting against sitting back, covered up, waiting for nine months to pass so they can have their child and carry on. Many are carrying their children and going to all sorts of lengths to feel sexy during a time where everyone else thinks they need to focus on being nurturing and all that motherly jazz. Like pro pole dancer Jill MacLean, a.k.a., “Cleo the Hurricane,” who after feeling “uncharacteristically unattractive” (according to Cosmopolitan) while approaching her due date, decided to get back on the pole and bust a few splits to find a way back to feeling like her old self again. MacLean, of course, went viral:

And in response to people who may be critical of her dance moves and her choice to do them in sky-high heels while pregnant (heels she says she actually feels more comfortable in than her bare feet), MacLean said, “It is very apparent that some people think that a pregnant woman on a pole is disrespectful to their body and to their baby. Yes, what I do is still considered ‘taboo’ to some people who don’t know any better, but to me, it is strength and my passion and that is all that matters.”

And then there have been famous women like Tiny, who recently shared a sexy maternity photo she took with husband T.I.:


 

And after revealing that she was expecting her second child, Draya Michele wasn’t afraid to show a vulnerable, yet sexy side of herself as she showed off her stomach:

I am a woman….. I’m creating life….

A photo posted by Draya Michele (@drayamichele) on


And then there are countless advice articles from different publications, including Parents magazine, on how to remain sexy during pregnancy for the sake of your relationship, and how to bring it back after the baby.

And yet, there are many, like my mom, who say such ensembles, pictures and actions aren’t appropriate for a pregnant woman, and that trying to look sensuous and to get attention should be the least of a mother-to-be’s worries. It’s assumed that you can forgo exuding uber sex appeal for nine months.

But I think it’s comments like the following, which I found on a BabyCenter forum asking what were 12 things women miss during their pregnancy, that gave me a perspective on the matter I hadn’t previously thought about:

“I miss being sexy because I don’t feel that way very much.”

Like “Cleo the Hurricane,” and the ladies on that same BabyCenter forum who said they missed their stiletto heels, being told by their husbands that they’re sexy, wearing thong panties and wearing their “cute outfits,” many women like to embrace their sexy side, when they can, because their bodies, which they no longer have control over, are changing in a major way. Their feet are swelling, their pant size is increasing, and all kinds of things are happening that may make them feel less than alluring. And just as we all have a desire to turn heads from time to time, and to just feel good about ourselves, a pregnant woman is no different. And, in fact, it’s probably more important for pregnant women to go to whatever lengths they need to in order to stay happy, so they can stay healthy for their unborn child.

But every person is different. While one woman might want to stick to sweats and a floppy T-shirt, another woman might choose to go the Kim Kardashian route and wear the tightest maxi dresses, take alluring pictures, and do whatever they feel is necessary to feel not just comfortable in their skin again, but beautiful in it.

What do you think of mothers-to-be upping the sex factor during their pregnancies? How important was it to be and feel sexy during your pregnancy?

You’ve seen the “man kisses belly” pictures before. You’ve seen the “woman rubs on belly while smiling pictures.” But you probably haven’t seen a pregnancy photo shoot image as fancy as Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and rapper T.I.’s recent creation.

We told you earlier this month that the pair recently celebrated the upcoming arrival of their seventh child (their third as a couple) by having a lavish baby shower in Atlanta. But that’s not the only way they celebrated the little lady they’ve deemed lucky no. 7. As they prepare for her to make her debut in the world next month, Tiny decided to share a picture from the photo shoot they recently had with popular Atlanta-based photographer and director Derek Blanks. How cute is this?

 

It’s nice to see the pair so excited and happy! And we’re sure the rest of their brood, including Zonnique, Domani, Messiah, Deyjah, King and Major, are thrilled as well!

Tiny: T.I. Can Be Sexist At Times

Tiny Harris

Yesterday, T.I. was relentlessly roasted across social media platforms following his comments about why he would never vote for a female president. The blunder heard around the world went a little something like this:

Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kind of like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions – and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to get the Lochness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].

TMZ was later able to catch up with the rapper’s wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, who shared her opinion on her hubby’s comments. For one, she says that that didn’t take his words personally.

“No, I’m not disrespected by his comments because I know him, and I know who he is. Either way, I think that it was not tasteful. But I’m not disrespected because I know the man he is.”

“I would hope he was joking,” she added.

When asked if she feels that he’s sexist, she replied:

“Sometimes.”

She went on to explain that her husband operates under old fashioned principles and believes that a woman should be taken care of by a man.

“He wants to be the man. He wants to take care of everything. He wants the woman to be treated like a princess.”

Does she agree?

“Sometimes I do. I can’t say that I don’t, but a woman has the right to do just as much as the man.”

As for why her husband thinks women are too emotional to the run the country, the former Xscape singer says he may have had her in mind when he made the comments.

“He might have been thinking about me at the time,” she said.

“Bum B***h Beat It!!!”: T.I. Responds To Shekinah Putting Him On Blast, And It’s Not Pretty

Uh oh, Tiny. You’ve found yourself in the middle of quite the complicated situation.

We told you earlier today that Shekinah Jo posted a picture of herself FaceTiming with Floyd Mayweather, and when people questioned her loyalty to T.I., she made it clear that her loyalty is to Tiny, her friend. Not Tip. She stated that he kicked her off “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle,” has shown her zero respect, and even gone as far as to call her “the help.” Now things are getting messy, because T.I. just went on a rant on Instagram and based on what has transpired, the rant seems to be aimed Shekinah’s way.

Shekinah’s response?

 

There isn’t really much left to say about all this, because he took things to a level that I think we all saw coming (this IS T.I. we’re talking about, and he will talk crazy to just about anybody). Still, it’s a shame to see things get so ugly between these two considering how important they are in Tiny’s life. Hopefully Tiny will be able to intervene, but considering that she seems to be on vacay in the Bahamas, she’ll have to bring peace from afar…

How would you deal if your husband and your best friend were at war?

“TI Thinks He Is GOD”: Shekinah Jo Puts T.I. On Blast, Reveals He Kicked Her Off “Family Hustle” Last Year

T.I. & Tiny headed for divorce

Sources: WENN, Instagram

I can’t really tell you where things went 100 percent left with T.I. and Shekinah Jo. But when things were sour between Tiny and her husband, for some reason, he kept taking verbal jabs at Shekinah, claiming she was “a hater to education” and ‘joking’ about her intelligence. We even asked Shekinah in a recent interview how she felt about the comments he made:

“Correct yourself and the people. I don’t take a jab at him ever. I don’t jab at him. When he give out whatever kind of comments he give, I never respond. You never see me go off. You never see any of that. Let’s get that right: I don’t take jabs at him. I don’t know why he takes his jabs, you have to ask him, baby. Oh I heard, because I blubber over the English language and I’m a hater to education? Let me address that: I’m very educated. I have a GED. It might not be enough for you guys but I’m blessed to have it. I have a cosmetology degree that’s updated and accurate. Mkay? I did my thing, so a hater to education? You don’t really reply to things that don’t involve you…but I don’t have a problem with Clifford Harris. He’s my friend’s husband and he takes damn good care of her so I’m happy for that.”

Well, she certainly has a problem with him now.

Shekinah recently posted a picture on her IG account of a FaceTime conversation she had with Floyd Mayweather:

 

But people who know the bad blood between Mayweather and T.I., which was over Tiny and ended up escalating into a brawl at Fat Burger, felt that Shekinah wasn’t being loyal. When she caught wind of the criticism, she let the frustrations she has been holding in with ‘Tip’ all the way out. She even claimed that the rapper had her kicked off of “Family Hustle,” which is why she ended up doing the “Weave Trip” spinoff with Tiny. Baller Alert and TheShadeRoom collected her responses on the picture:

After doing all of that responding, Shekinah posted a message of encouragement from a friend describing all her feelings:

#shekinah still going in #ti #tip #tiny

A photo posted by Baller Alert (@balleralert) on

Though it’s unclear what went down between these two, I’m not really surprised at the idea of T.I. having Shekinah kicked off “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle,” if those allegations are true. There were rumors swirling for years that the rapper is the reason why Tiny’s first reality show, 2009’s “Tiny and Toya,” came to an end so abruptly, despite it being a huge hit for BET.

Since it’s clear that things aren’t peachy keen between T.I. and Shekinah after all, it does make one wonder how Tiny handles this situation, what with her best friend and husband at odds. No response from her or T.I. as of yet…

Check out her previous feelings on T.I. in our interview below. She gives her two cents at the 4:50 mark:

 

“Passed Around Sl*t!” Tiny Slams Claudia Jordan Over “Pig” Jokes From Old Radio Show That Have Resurfaced

January 14th, 2015 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

Claudia Jordan started this week out on top after proving that she wasn’t scared of NeNe Leakes and defending herself pretty well during their back-and-forth on Sunday’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta episode. But it’s only Wednesday, and yet, things have gone left for the radio personality and reality TV star.

It seems that after NeNe Leakes called Jordan a “half-breed” during their argument this past weekend, and Jordan described the statement as a hurtful “low blow” on “Watch What Happens Live,” Leakes’ fans started digging up all kinds of disparaging video and audio from Jordan’s past. First there was video of Jordan at an event joking about how it was too dark in the venue, so she could only see the eyes and teeth of those with a darker complexion.

She tried to explain those statements as a joke taken out of context:

“…that was 6 years ago. I have grown so much since then. It was a joke that was used against me.”

But nothing comes close to the audio people are passing around (which seems to have been on YouTube for a while now) of Jordan during her Foxxhole days years ago. In the audio clip from the old Sirius XM episode, Jordan is heard tearing into Tameka “Tiny” Cottle during a story about T.I. and his legal troubles. In it, Jordan is brutal when speaking on Tiny’s looks, along with fellow co-host, Johnny Mack, comparing her looks to a piggy bank and joking about her possibly having Down Syndrome. It wasn’t pretty:


 

This was clearly years before Tiny brought her along to be on the short-lived VH1 talk show, “Tiny Tonight.” And Tiny wasn’t aware of the ugly things that were said by Jordan about her. As I said, after Sunday’s “RHOA” episode, this audio was passed around, and it somehow ended up right in front of Tiny. To say that she was pissed after listening to it would be a lie–she was furious. This is what she wrote early this morning on Twitter:

 

Tiny

 

Yikes!

Instead of trying to say that these were jokes also used against her, Jordan was apologetic this time around and told everyone she would say sorry on the “Rickey Smiley Show” this morning. When that audio becomes available, we’ll be sure to add it in this post:

 

Claudia 2 Claudia 3 Claudia 4

 

As it turns out, Jordan ended up breaking down and tearing up over her comments while apologizing on the show. Afterwards, she took to Twitter again to speak on taking responsibility for hurtful choices:

 

Claudia Claudia 5

Wow is all I can say to all of this. But what about you? What do you think about Tiny’s statements and Jordan’s choice to publicly apologize to her?
