I thoroughly enjoyed last night’s debut of Tameka “Tiny” Harris‘ new talk show on VH1. After years of playing second fiddle to her former Xscape band members, and even her superstar rapper husband T.I., it was time for Tiny to shine in her own right.
Unfortunately, Tiny chose the wrong co-hosts to share the spotlight with her in the series premiere which aired on VH1 last night.
Socialite Claudia Jordan was the wrong fit entirely. While watching the show, a friend of mine kept asking, “What does she do again?” Then there was none-hit-wonder Trina — who I hear is back in the strip clubs catching dollars in her thong — she doesn’t want you to know that, though. Trina desperately tried to sound intelligent on subjects she knew nothing about.
Luckily, Tamar Braxton was on the set or Trina would have been the most ignorant talk show co-host ever. ‘The View’ these ladies were not. They often talked over Tiny who struggled to make her points heard on her own talk show.
Tiny’s hair stylist Shekinah, who loves Tiny dearly, saved the day for Tiny Tonight viewers. When Shekinah was on the set, the other women quietly deferred to her because there was no talking over Shekinah. Toward the end of the 60-minute show, Tiny held her first ever Teenie Awards, honoring such individuals as Rihanna and First Lady Michelle Obama, among others.
Hours before the show, someone in Tiny’s camp called this blogger complaining about VH1’s lack of support or promotion for Tiny’s talk show. This prompted one blogger to take to Twitter.com to show her full support for Tiny, who has done everything VH1 asked her to do — despite the fact that VH1’s producers alienated and aggravated Tiny’s daughter, Zonnique, to no end. I wish I could say more.
