    That's a sweet, positive mother and daughter thing to do - write a book. I'm here for it

    Not saying Brat has to sex up her look, but can she like, refine it? Give the hair ornaments & baggy jeans a rest with your 40 year old azz.

    The first piece of advice that book should have is stop trying to be your kids friend. Next advice is stop clubbing with your kids. If you follow the advice listed above your kids will respect you more.

    her daughter looks exactly like her... age and all.. all I got for this...

  • Anunnaki

    What be in these books celebs be writing.. serious question

  • i troll it like i see it

    I was thinking the exact same thing yesterday! I saw her giving an interview and she had the same pigtails and rubber bands with the bandana from 25 years ago and I'm like why? She's just like T-Boz, neither of them evolved their look. Look like throwback versions of themselves like at all times.

  • Ni Ni

    Yaas! I'm waiting for that one as well.

  • Hater

    Not evolving whatsoever ??????????

  • Anunnaki

    Brat, why are u still looking like 1992, ole,nat'l hwy...over there at Kirk frost studio...

    So parenting advice from someone who got pregnant as a teen and goes clubbing with their child. As well as advice from a rich child on how to understand my broke child???? I can't

  • hottlanta

    I know right. We supposed to take parenting advice from a woman who had one baby by a wealthy man. Got fortunate where she didn't have to cook or clean and pregnant again by a wealthy man when the kids go to college.

  • Ni Ni

    I want Gary wit da tea to maybe get her to lose a bet and have her dress like a woman for a week. She's such a pretty lady to look so tacky.

  • stav

    Da Brat refuses to give up her 90's look (Please give it up!). This book is as irrelevant as the two who claims to have written it.

  • hottlanta

    My sentiments exactly. More like a step by step guide on how a mother/daughter can shop at Rainbow. Because that is all that I have seen.

  • Anunnaki

    What gabby book talking, about break baby

  • KLo

    I don't care for Reginae . she has a bad attitude https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cb319b501a195409ec647723f2cdb5424b7d3cb47d48c828812a557a60f8f67d.gif . Im not buying shty

  • hottlanta

    Naw more like Tyrsese writing a book about relationships and acting like a bytch. Will gave him the money to stay off the interview and he had to get back online to show that they gave him the money. He was acting like a woman who haven't had sex in years but had to go online to let the world know she finally got some.

    Brat is a pretty chick too. i always wonder if there's something deeper going on with her always downplaying her beauty.
    maybe she just doesn't want to be objectified? no judgment, just curious.
    *shrug* https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9eb2b76e506e38d5072dd1cf3ad262774eb5ffcb7856de93eefa3205f33fbcb1.gif

  • isaiit

    It's like she is stuck in a time warp... I dont like it

  • hottlanta

    Yep did you see her ole videos. OMG. I see her now and it is shocking . She probably got tired of all of that female maintenance and said the hell with it.

  • stav

    It's like a desperate plea to still be recognized. They feel as if they stay in a time warp with those super old styles, people will always recognize who they are. It's quite sad, and the looks are so dated and stale.

  • hottlanta

    Can they read the book though.

  • Anunnaki

    Lmao ok, yep how to eat chyt

  • Jen_no_juice

    LOLOLOL

  • stav

    It seems pretty obvious that's she quite butch!

  • Junkanoo

    These fools are a waste of time ,money and oxygen .If you wanna be a boss mom don't listen to this haffa cause it looks like she spoils her kid . Lead by example put ya phone down hang out and chat with ya kids . There's no blueprint to parenting hard to get it all right the key thing is to try to produce mentally stable people.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    yeah, but as others have said, her look hasn't even "evolved" ...she could still be butch but 'current'

  • Ni Ni

    Right, I'm interested in hearing her story. That's who needs a book.

    Lol, she dont have to be all glamorous with it. Hell, i don't do half of that female maintenance my damn self. Matter fact i can't remember the last time i wore nail polish, done recently stopped wearing make up. Guess i pretty much said fck it myself?.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Da Brat just refuses to be a lady more than a week per month. A 40'something tomboy.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I BOL. So wha'ts the side effect to post midget? Y'all are hilarious.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Sandra where are the rest of the pictures? I'm sure they gave you a bulk deal on the price, for this type of event.

  • stav

    I feel you! To me it seems like a look that's pretty much only associated with her, so with her not being relevant in the music industry any longer, she feels it's pretty much the only way to get some recognition. No matter how tired the look is, I guess someone will notice her. Seems thirsty!

  • YES I SAID IT…

    A mess right lol!?! She is such a pretty chick and even though she goes both ways, she really looks better when she plays the woman role...

  • i troll it like i see it

    That look of hers with the oversized clothes has been out of style for sooo long. I don't know anyone who dresses like that since the 90s. It is sad yes!

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Without it, people would never recognize her. The fame from the 90s is all she has.

    It gets her the attention that fuels her narcissism

    Without that fame, she would have to take a long look at herself and who she really is.

    Well said, I just said the same thing in a reply to Nancy Drew.

  • hottlanta

    I still can't get over the fact that women actually stood in line and fought over who was gonna kiss him.

    hey, nobody wants to just fade away, i guess.
    personally, i've never been one for the spotlight. but, i guess if you've chased it, attained it, and then lost it, you tend to try to recapture/relive those 'glory days'
    it's the same with aging in general, some of us intend to do it gracefully; some of us say fugg what you heard, get ME to the most skilled sculptor/injector/fat transferrer, Lol! if folks want to live out their golden years looking like they got mumps, i say let them, ROFL!!!!

  • pecancandy

    Love how those ladies support each other! Did not know it was a parenting book, no thank you Toya.

  • hottlanta

    Sandy missed it. They showed that he was hawking his NEW book at the courthouse and they had to tell him to stop it. They showed a guy with his new book. No lie.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Isn't that the story of all of the lesbians who dress manly..(i.e..butch)..??

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Its good to see everyone supporting one another. Toya seem like she is her daughter friend. They are close and thats all that matters. Reginae and Zonnique are beautiful young women.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    My sissy is a Toya fan and said she is buying the book. My niece is close to my age and my sister started all over again. Actually she is 18 so we are nine years apart but my sister said she relates to Toya.

  • Coy little wink

    It means she's almost a midget ? they tend to look beyond their years (I think)

  • Connie

    First thing that went through my mind was "paperback toya" a la Tamar
    Love Zonnique, can see she is a well mannered, humble young lady.
    Can't stand spoiled, entitled Reginae

    I agree about Zonnique!

    Butch lesbians have daddy issues or they were molested or abused by a male family member. They have serious emotional issues.

  • darealwifey

    Reginae 'bout to get REAL LIFE handed to her. She is such a beautiful girl, but she seems like she can't handle things without running to her mother and father. And she doesn't take "no" well. That is real life. We all have to deal with it.

    There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING this woman can tell me about parenting my chi'rens!! Have you seen them on on that show? Reginae walks all over Toya and all Toya do is tell people about how she don't play when it come to her child. Maybe if she did a little more parenting, she would be able to control Reginae. I understand she is grown now, but she only been grown for like 2 hours. The disrespect has been going on for years and you can tell. But this right here...is a waste of trees and carbon black!!

    I'll wait until I can download free from Amazon. There is a time we must put away childish things. Its time to hv a intervention with Da Brat. It's time to take the colorful hair bands and ribbons off. She can still keep then to remind her of time long gone. Besides Stevie Wonder I cant think of a another artist that have worn a hairstyle for this long. Time to update the clothes you can still hv that style but Im gone need you to hop your ass up here to 2017. She needs to put out some music because she had a nice flow. Can you imagine her & MC Lyte, Lil Kim, Foxy Brow, Remy Ma, and Latifah?! Oh man they could come for some for some necks. Then Big Daddy Kane and someother male rappers of that era drop a lil something. I mean come for some necks and show these so called rappers how its really done. They arent too old to do something hot.
