Toya Wright, Lil Wayne Baby Mama, Scores Reality Show With Memphitz!
The Hollywood Gossip - about 4 years
Toya Wright is making the most out of her claim to "fame." Lil Wayne's baby mama is filming a new pilot wit rapper husband Mickey Wright (a.k.a. Memphitz of Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta fame) as they try to launch a new business. The working title? Mickey and Toya: The Wright Way. Really. The new program will follow the couple as they attempt to get their unnamed enterprise off the ground, while remaining married. Should be a lot of fun, no doubt. It's not Toya's first go at reality TV. Or her second. She previously starred in Tiny and Toya (on BET) and Toya: A Family Affair (also on BET). The new show is being shopped to … BET. And MTV, FUSE and OXYGEN. Who will snatch up this gem? No one knows. But there is little doubt that being impregnated by Weezy is a lucrative (and no doubt pleasurable, given his skills in bed, are we right ladies?) career path.
