Lil Wayne’s ex-wife Toya Carter is making major moves! She is featured on the February Cover of Sister 2 Sister Magazine with her new fiance’ Memphitz and she discusses everything from her new book, new boutique and new BET Reality Show. She also speaks on her relationship with Memphitz:
Yes he’s like sexy chocolate (laughter) I’m kidding. He’s a family guy and that’s what I love. Like, he was raised by both parents until his father passed away. He’s very well-mannered. He’s not selfish. He’s 100 percent supportive. He’s a good friend…everything I ever wanted in a man. You can tell it’s a difference when a guy grows up with both of their parents. Like, everything was “yes ma’am, yes sir.” Respectful, like “Let me open the door for you.” These days, guys think that is lame when that’s really being a gentleman. He shows me and my daughter lots of respect. And you know, I love that about him. You don’t get that too much these days.
A few more excerpts below:
Toya On Her Friendship With Lil Wayne
Yeah, we’re really, really cool. Wayne actually did the foreword for my book. It’s like, him and MeMphHitz met and now everything is all good.
Toya On Her Upcoming Book
The name of the book is “Priceless Inspirations.” It’s about my life and growing pains and things I chose to share with younger girls. An example is teen pregnancy; domestic violence, drugs, the business-the list goes on. Relationships, boys-it’s all types of stuff, like heart break. Just everything that I have been through that has made me the woman that I am today. Like, sometimes people say you have to go through things to kind of get it. Like, nobody could tell me not to have my baby, even though everybody was against it and felt like I was a child having a child. I had to experience that. These little boys want one thing, but I still did what I wanted to do. It was just me being younger.
But sometimes stories can help you versus your parents or older people trying to tell you thing. Sometimes we feel like, “That happened to you but that don’t apply to us; that was back in the old days.” With my book I just wanted to do something inspirational. I named my book “Priceless Inspirations” because my name, Antonia, means “priceless” in Italian.
Toya On Her New Boutique
We opened October 21st and I had this big grand opening party. I mean, the business has been booming. God is good. I put a lot of love into the store because fashion has always been a passion of mine. It’s in a really nice neighborhood in New Orleans at 2108 Magazine Street.
