Toya Carter And Memphitz Cover Sister 2 Sister + Etta James Gravely Ill
Toya Carter and her fiance Memphitz recently sat for an interview with S2S and we have bits for you inside. Hear Toya dish about love, life and reality TV and get the deets on Etta James' health.
If you're a Toya Carter fan, get ready to see a lot more of her in her BET reality show spinoff debuting in April. She talked about the show and Lil' Wayne in her reent S2S interview.
On 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.”
On her boyfriend, 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.”
On her 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.”
And in music news...
Blues legend Etta James is not doing well healthwise. Etta has been battling Alzheimer's disease, leukemia AND she had become sick with a blood infection and the MRSA superbug while undergoing treatment for an addiction to painkillers last year. That's a handfull for anyone and their immune system.
Soures say she needs help with feeding, dressing and hygiene and now there is family drama with her husband trying to wrestle power of attorney away from her sons so he can control her finances. SMH at the family drama. We hope Etta James finds some peace...
