As you know, Lil Wayne’s baby mama and reality TV star Antonia Carter got married to her boyfriend, Mickey “Memphitz” Wright, over the weekend in Atlanta.
While most of you are talking about Lil Wayne’s other baby mama, Nivea, getting arrested for a DUI after the reception — the industry is wondering whether the wedding was even real.
According to my confidential informant — an invited industry insider — no one knew until they arrived that the wedding would be filmed for an upcoming episode of Carter’s BET reality TV series, “A Family Affair”.
My informant said BET producers angered the guests by telling them they couldn’t bring their cell phones into the wedding, and making them sign release forms. “People were pissed!” said my source. She said none of the guests knew the wedding was being filmed until they arrived. “The invitations said the wedding was in Alpharetta, but it was in Milton, Georgia,” she said.
“The seating was staged to accommodate the TV cameras,” she said. “Monica Brown came with her husband Shannon, and Tamar Braxton was there with her husband. Tameka [Tiny] was the maid of honor.”
“It was raining. They made everyone huddle in a little guest house foyer for an hour until they got it together. We had to sign release forms.”
“Your guests don’t want to be on TV!,” she continued. “They don’t know if [industry] people are coming with their wives or their mistresses, you understand what Im saying? If you ever decide to get married, and BET or somebody wants to film it, tell them no!,” she said hypothetically.
“Everyone in the wedding was questioning, ‘is this a real wedding?’” said my source. “I heard the wedding date kept getting moved around to accommodate BET.”
She also said everyone was talking about how beautiful singer Monica looked and how she outshined the bride at her own wedding.
My source said Toya and Memphitz will go on their honeymoon during the BET Awards next week.
