Antonia “Toya” Carter Celebrates Grand Opening of GARB Boutique

Last week a loyal reader asked me why I didn’t post anything about the Grand Opening of Antonia “Toya” Carter’s boutique. Well, thanks to ATLien, I can post the pics from the event.


In addition to being a reality TV personality and an Atlanta socialite, Toya can now add entrepreneur to her growing resume!


As you know, Toya is one part of the popular “Tiny and Toya Show” on BET, which I hear is going to be revived now that Tiny’s husband T.I. is back behind bars until at least next Summer.

Toya opened her clothing boutique last weekend (Oct. 23) using the funds she made from her show. She celebrated the occasion with family, friends and her man Memphitz who I hear is very good to her.

I hear that Toya is the woman Lil Wayne was musing about in his last letter from prison, which I posted yesterday. Click here if you didn’t see it. Toya’s a lucky woman to have 2 famous men hotly pursuing her!

Speaking of friends, Kandi Burruss (Real Housewives) made sure she didn’t miss the Grand Opening. As you know, Kandi has a boutique which almost went under last year before I wrote a post about her neglecting her duties as a business woman. You’ll be happy to hear that Kandi spends more time inside the store helping to promote her business rather than focusing all of her attention on her Internet sex show.

    :hug: I love you for saying what I was thinking!

    And Toyais very pretty, as is Rasheeda, (who I noticed you neglected to mention in ANY of the photos she’s in, Sandra. What happened there? :coffee:)…

    …But Rasheeda was soooo pretty from that one side with the long hair, then turned to the other and ghetto-fied it up with the braids. *sigh* You’re too pretty not to have any class, Ra-Ra. Leave being a hoodrat to the ugly chicks, please and thanks!

    @12 – Lyfe Jennings baby mama was supposed to be on the show, and so was Kandi but don’t know what happened with that, instead of Toya. Say Toya went around bad mouthing and using her connects to get Lyfe’s baby mama kicked off and her put on… :shrug: Thats just what i heard…

    Naw I don’t think so. I think it depends on the woman to be honest. No woman deserves to be hit point blank but men know who will accept certain behavior and who won’t IMO! just saying what I’ve seen.

    @LakerCrazy according to Joy, (Lyfe Jennings’ baby mama) Toya was sleeping with one of the producers on the show and talked him into kicking Joy and Christina (Ludacris’ baby mama) off the show. Joy says the whole show was her idea, and Toya basically jacked it from her. :rolleyes:

    Thanks TruGemini for summarizing.
    @ lakercrazy and teedrews – the overseer summoned me to the big house so i’s sorry i didn’t respond sooner.

    Since I can’t post a link to the website…i copied one of the post from there and pasted it below. Check it out. This is from Sep of 2009. Yes, I do remember chit.

    Speaking of reality show stars, there is some drama going on behind the scenes of the “Tiny and Toya” show. Joy Bounds (ex-fiance of singer Lyfe Jennings) is speaking out and claiming she came up with the concept of the show that would have included Christine White (Ludacris’s baby mother), KANDI, Toya and Tiny. The show was supposed to focus on their lives and eventually spin off into a late night talk show. HOWEVER, she claims that Toya had some sort of falling out with the other girls and had them all booted from the show (except for Tiny) because of her relationship with a friend of one of the producers. Check out Joy’s letter revealing her side of the story below:

    Mrs. Grapevine,

    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.

    Even though I was urged by advisors to have a contract in place, I went against my better judgment trusting that my “friends” word was bond. It wasn’t. We had 2 deals on the table, interest from 4 networks, a promotional photo shoot, a top notch attorney, a company together and I had just left a meeting when I got a call from Toya saying she no longer wanted to do the show because of Kandi Burruss who replaced Christine after she and Toya bumped heads. In the meeting Toya seemed like a totally different person than the friend I knew and loved. She even insulted Kandi in front of the executive we were meeting with. The next week Toya’s “scene” made sense when I got a call from Tiny telling me that she and Toya were doing the show alone.

    Kandi contacted the producer to ask what happened. He let her know that Toya had called him asking that he do the show with just her. He requested Tiny. Mind you, this is the same producer I fell out with when he tried to persuade us to negotiate our deal over shots of Patron at his hotel.

    Toya was indeed in a “courtship” with this producer’s friend and based on some things she spat out at the meeting, I believe he was in her ear for his and the producer’s interest.

    I will continue to pursue the “created by” credit I deserve on “The Tiny & Toya Show” as it is the same concept I created minus me, Christine or Kandi as well as the intelligent balance we bring. For the record, my credit request was made before the show aired so no, I didn’t decide to sue based on ratings.

    Everything happens for a reason and I’m happy to have learned the truth about my circle before I invested anymore love, time and money. I’m not mad at anybody. I am mostly disappointed that we failed to stick together and broadcast a positive representation of black women on television.

    I’m grateful God has used this hurtful situation to teach me and bless me.

    Peace,
    Joy Bounds

    After reading her letter again, I’m just not buying it. Ms. Bounds definitely threw Toya, and Tiny for that matter, under the bus with her Sugar Coated Shade. “it is the same concept I created minus me, Christine or Kandi as well as the intelligent balance we bring“. Oh REALLY? So I guess Tiny and Toya are complete dunces? The Tiny and Toya Show was a far cry from “coonery: (give or take a very few instances.)At the end of the day, it wasn’t a “frivolous baby mama” show, and I just think Ms. Joy needs more people. Just my opinion.
