Antonia “Toya” Carter is the latest celebrity to cover an issue of Rolling Out magazine and in it, speaks on motherhood and her new reality show.
Toya’s show ‘Toya’s Family Affair’ debuted last week as BET’s highest rated returning series in history with 1.5 million viewers.
And according to Toya , the program that goes in depth about her mother’s drug problem and her strained relationship with her previously incarcerated brother is both a gift and a curse.
While she enjoys having people relate to her, she’s weary of people who feel like they really know her on a personal level.
She tells Rolling Out,
“It’s a gift and a curse, but a blessing. People feel like they really, really know you. So you get the weirdos who come up to you, ‘Oh, you looking for love? I can help you with that,’ and ‘Lil Wayne’s crazy’ and this and that. The plus side is you get to meet people who genuinely give you this love and open up to you … so it helps people.”
