“I learned a lot. I watched Wayne go into different phases. Each phase I learned something new. As far as his love for women; he’s not really a one woman man…”- Toya
BET reality TV stars and the ladies linked to the some of the biggest names in rap are back speaking on the high profile relationships.
Tiny and Toya are gearing up for the second season of their reality show and in between, dishing out more details on their current and former flames.
While Tiny’s been reunited with her beaux T.I. since his early release from prison, her best friend Toya is dealing with the incarceration of her ex-husband Lil Wayne.
Speaking in an interview with Honey Magazine, T.I.’s fiance and mother of two of his children says it’s important to keep a relationship fresh. She tells Honey that the way a relationship starts out should be maintained throughout.
“One thing I always say for a relationship is that however you start is how you should finish. I hate for a man to start a relationship and things seem so nice and then it gets old and he stops doing all those things. If those are the things that made me fall in love with him, then he needs to do those things periodically in the relationship or the relationship will go stale. I think that really helps you feel wanted when it’s old.”
Speaking on her former relationship with Lil Wayne, Toya says she realized Dwayne Carter wasn’t a “one woman man” but says she learned valuable lessons from him and let go of her grudges.
“I learned a lot. I watched Wayne go into different phases. Each phase I learned something new. As far as his love for women; he’s not really a one woman man. I had to deal with that. I am kind of happy because he made me stronger. No BS. I learned a lot from being Lil’ Wayne’s wife. As long as I’ve held grudges I’ve learned to let it go.”
She also says that now that he’s in jail she’s not used to not having access to him. Describing their relationship as “great”, Toya says that she’s always been able to pick up the phone to talk to him, but now calls between herself, her daughter and Wayne are much more restricted.
“No one wants to see anyone in jail, especially their kids’ father and husband. Wayne and I have a great relationship. That’s just not anywhere that I want to see him. He’s never not been accessible. As long as we’ve been talking or dating I’ve never not been able to pick up the phone and call him no matter what is going on in my life. Now he’s licked up and it’s not like that anymore. As far as my daughter, her and her father have a great relationship. She talks to him every day after school. She can still talk to him but now it’s on a schedule with calls. It’s going to be a change for these 8 months.”
By contrast, Tiny says that she gets to go home with her confirmed husband-to-be after he puts in work in the studio. As previously reported, T.I. will be officially free from the binds of the government Friday, March 26 when the remainder of the prison sentence he was serving outside of jail is complete.
“In the daytime he’s working a lot in the studio, and most of my time is spent staying where he is and then we come home together.”
The ladies also say that the second season of their reality show is set to premiere on April 13.
