Antonia “Toya” Wright and her husband Mickey “MempHitz” Wright have been shopping their reality TV show for over a year now with no luck.
Toya and Mickey have shopped their show titled “Mickey and Toya: The Wright Way” to BET, MTV, FUSE and OXYGEN networks without any offers. MempHitz even dumped his thug nom de guerre in favor of his given name, Mickey, to upgrade his image for national TV audiences.
The reality is that the TV networks are shying away from Toya’s new show because neither she nor Mickey have enough star power. In other words, the show would quickly tank in the ratings. Toya’s last reality show was cancelled due to poor TV ratings.
A lot of people don’t know that former Xscape member Tameka “Tiny” Harris is the one who came up with the concept for the popular Braxton’s Family Values reality show.
Although Tiny is not credited nor thanked for her contribution to the hit show, Tiny harbors no ill feelings towards the Braxton family
at least not publicly.
Tamar Braxton, whose reality show ‘Tamar and Vince‘ hit rock bottom in the ratings, was a guest on Tiny’s show recently.
In an interview with Sister2Sister Magazine, Tiny relates how she discussed doing a similar late night talk show with Tamar.
Ratings for Tiny and Toya’s reality TV show on BET were so good that they earned the title #1 original series in BET history. Tiny & Toya has been green lighted for a second season and cameras will follow Tiny’s group the OMG Girlz and the eventual release of Tiny’s man T.I. from prison at the end of this year or the beginning of next year.
The OMG Girlz performed in Fort Wayne, Indiana. over the weekend. This was the 1st out of town show for the OMG GIRLZ and the promoter Richie Rich went all out. They did billboards and radio and had the largest limo ever. Over 800 kids came out.
Tiny and Toya are really doing a great job with the goup along with Kiesha the manager. Richie Rich has done alot of shows in Indiana and he does a good job helping new acts get great exposure. He gave Soulja Boy one of his 1st shows wayyyyy before the deal and look at him now. OMG GIRLZ are on there way to the top. The kids really had a good time in Fort Wayne.
