Toya Wright is famous for her relationships, but she's successful cause of her drive.
She recently self-published her second book, How To Lose A Husband, a fictional account based on personal experiences. And Wright should know a thing or two about experiences. She's a reality TV vet, having starred in multiple productions, including alongside T.I.'s wife, Tiny, and her own husband, Mickey "Memphitz" Wright. The latter co-star and Toya are currently separated but cordial. An status that she also shares with her first husband, Lil Wayne, whom she continues to be in good standing with.
In her sit-down with The Breakfast Club this morning (February 22), Wright dished on her life, including her new book (out now) and how she batched things up with K. Michelle.
On K. Michelle...
I never really had a problem, I don’t have a problem with K. Michelle. I think she’s a very beautiful girl, very talented. The whole social media thing came about because I felt like I was being picked on. I ignored it time and time again… I’m a woman that wants to see all women win. I would never tear down your music or discredit what you do. OK, I don’t sing, I don’t know how to sing, I don’t act. But don’t discredit what I do. I work everyday.
I just feel like the whole situation was petty. We were both given a platform and to use it in that way to kind of bash each other, and go back and forth, was unnecessary. I feel like, they reached out to me to do her show, and I don’t know if it stemmed from me declining her show, but, I was like no. Because of that, I felt like, I’m happy for you. Keep doing your show, keep doing your music. But every time something comes up that I’m doing, don’t throw shade at it.
I’m glad she has peace.
Her Stance On What Happened Between Memphitz And K. Michelle
I wasn’t there, I don’t have anything to do with the situation. I never called her a liar, I never will call her a liar. I never defended my husband. I supported my husband. I supported the man I know. You can’t get upset with me for supporting someone that I’m married to. I’m just being a supportive wife. I never said you’re lying. It’s not my business and it has nothing to do with me.
On Her New Book
This is a fictional book based off of real-life experience. And the reason that I chose this title is because we live in a world today where negativity seems to go further than positivity. And I feel like this title, they made a joke about this title. But after you read this book, the moral is that you have to be whole before you can be a half. I feel like this is the modern-day "Waiting To Exhale."
On Her Marriage And The Hall Pass Rumors
Let’s clear the record. Since you want to go there with the hall pass thing. The hall pass thing, it started off as a joke. A pillow talk joke. My husband is into things that I’m not into, like threesomes. I’m sorry I’m not that type of girl. But that’s your sexual appetite, everyone has different sexual appetites. It’s not like I gave him a hall pass and I allowed him to cheat on me and come back. That never happened. The relationship got to the point where we were both moving int two different directions. When were were together I can tell you he didn’t use a hall pass because it never came up like that. Now I’m like do you, cause I’m doing me. I’m trying to get to the money. I was very upset when he brought it up. Cause I have a 17-year-old daughter and other young girls that look up to me. And even if I was to give this man a hall pass and was cool with it, that’s my business. What works for me, might not work for you. And what works for you, might not work for me. You can’t be the judge of my relationship and tell me that I’m insecure, I’m weak, I’m stupid for giving my husband a hall pass. Nothing is insecure about me and I’m far from stupid. And if I’m secure enough to give my husband a hall pass that’s my business.
On Her Daughter With Lil Wayne, Reginae, Dating
Oh god. I talk to my daughter about everything. My daughter is my best friend. I didn’t have that growing up. She’s 17, she’ll be 18 in November. She has a boyfriend and that was difficult for me to deal with. I want her to be way better than I ever was. I try not to think about that. But I do talk to her about everything and when you’re ready [for advice] come to me. I have that open relationship with my daughter. Don’t go to your homegirl and ask them, come to your mama. I want to be the one that knows everything. I want to tell you my mistakes and the things that I did wrong so you won’t have to follow in my footsteps.
