Lil Wayne and T.I.’s Daughters Shopping Reality Show?
Reality TV is officially becoming a family affair. The daughters of rappers Lil Wayne and T.I. are following in their famous parents' footsteps, getting in front of the camera for their own reality show.
The series is said to focus on the life and budding musical careers of Wayne's 10-year-old daughter Reginae, and T.I.'s fiancee Tameka "Tiny" Cottle's daughter, 13-year-old Zonnique. According to reports, the girls are working with Ish Entertainment, the company behind T.I.'s 'Road to Redemption which aired on MTV earlier this year.
Both Zonnique and Reginae have had plenty of practice in front of the camera appearing on 'Tiny & Toya,' the BET reality show starring both of their mothers. Reginae also took the stage alongside her father at this year's BET awards while he performed his current single, 'Every Girl.' The appearance garnered a lot of negative press due to the song's explicit content.
Reginea's mother later released a statement apologizing for the incident. "I Antonia 'Toya' Carter have been disturbed but silent about the performance that took place at the BET awards, which [included] my only child, Reginae Carter, and her friends joining her father Lil Wayne on stage," she said.
"I will be the first to admit that the father and daughter relationship should not have been reunited on stage while this song was being performed. Wayne is a very loving, caring, and devoted father and I truly feel that the act was unintentional. I do not think it was a wise decision and I truly do apologize to all that this may offended and most importantly the children that watched this performance."
Zonnique is one-third of the pre-teen girl group OMG Girls. The group is comprised of the teenager and her two friends, Bahjah and Lourdes Rodriguez, who are daughters to Jonathen Rosboro of '90s R&B group Silk. The group is said to be working on their album, under the guidance of Zonnique's mother, Tiny.
