Last night T.I and Tiny hosted their close friends and family to the viewing of the back to back debut episodes of VH1’sReal Housewives star and former Xscape band mate Kandi Burruss attended as well as Tiny’s former ‘Tiny and Toya’ co-star Toya Carter Wright.
Prior to the premiere T.I told CNN that reality television is still something he’s getting used to.
“It’s less about the lives of people and more about the catastrophes within the lives of people. They just want that moment of drama and tragedy to exploit instead of really focusing on the foundational structure of the lives of people.”
So T.I and Tiny managed to settle on a deal with VH1 that will counter their usual formula. But what about the reality TV relationship curse? Tiny reveals,
“This was a conversation I had with him years ago and he was always against it,” she said. “We figured out a way to make it family oriented and not be a strain on our relationship, and so far so good.”
Let’s hope so. Watch the full episode of T.I and Tiny at CottenKandi.
