Are T.I. and Tiny Reviving The Family Hustle?
If true, I’m shocked. But maybe I shouldn’t be.
Yesterday, theJasmineBRAND got the exclusive that Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and husband T.I. are allegedly reviving their VH1 reality show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.
Filming will begin this month, and with an offer of 10 episodes, sources told the blog that the show will follow the same old recipe. It will portray the couple’s family and professional lives with possible appearances from singer Monica, BFF Shekinah Jo, fellow reality star Toya Wright and her daughter Reginae Carter.
But just how much of their true family life will be depicted? As of late, the entire family is dealing with patriach T.I.’s habitual infidelities.
Last month, he was caught on camera smacking the butt of Greenleaf actress Asia’h Epperson. Although nothing more than that happened in the video, we can safely assume more than butt-smacking has happened between the two.
And because of that incident, his children, in particular, Major, 10, and King, 12, wanted to spend this year’s Father’s Day with their mother.
When a fan said she wanted to see King and Major, T.I. said, “Major and King with they momma, man. And they ain’t rockin’ with me right now.”
T.I.’s cheating scandals have rocked the family so much that Tiny admitted on Bravo’s Kandi Koated Nights that she unashamedly hired a private investigator to find out whether her husband was still cheating on her with several women.
“I definitely would recommend it. It is expensive, though. But it worked,” she said.
I doubt that the new season will be as real as I think it should be, but I might be tuning in. There’s nothing like watching an example of what not to do.
