In case you missed it, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, former member of the female group “Xscape’ and wife of rapper Clifford T.I.” Harris, launched her own highly anticipated talk show ‘Tiny Tonight’ earlier this week on VH1.
In a recent interview Ebony Magazine, Tiny dished on how she prepared to take on her first hosting duties and her overall future vision for the show. She also revealed how she is able to juggle her career with family life and why it is important for women to treat their men like kings.
Here’s a few excerpts from the interview below:
EBONY: How did you prepare yourself to get into talk-show hostess mode?
TINY: I studied. They would send me notes on what’s going on, and we would pitch in and talk about what we wanted to talk about on the show. I just really did my homework. It was more like a real job for me. Doing this talk show was like, “Wow, this is what they do?!” I can’t even imagine doing it every day. There’s a lot of work that goes into it.
It was just an idea that I’ve been talking about doing for a long, long time with my good friend, Tamar Braxton. We wanted to do a talk show and make it young and youthful. I’m just so happy that VH1 was open to the process.
EBONY: You once told me that you’ve always been the go-to girl in your crew. You’re the advice giver. Will that be your role in this show?
TINY: Yep. It’s still that way. I’m always giving out advice. People always come to me for that. And I keep it real too. On the show, you’re going to see us chatting as homegirls and hearing our input, our insight. And we are just laughing, we’re talking, we argue a little here and there, because everybody don’t agree. But we have fun, and that’s just what happens when ladies get together. You’re going to see a lot of funny moments in there, especially with the cast I have.
EBONY: What’s the best advice that you’ve given to some of your single girlfriends about trying to have it all?
TINY: When you get a man, you have to nurture him. Treat him like a king. If you put that little work in in the beginning, it pays off.
