When your friends are beefing, whose side do you take? Well, if you’re Tameka “Tiny” Harris, you play it neutral. “I don’t know where it came from, but I think that it’s pretty small”, Tiny told HipHollywood.
It’s no secret that Tiny Tonight co-hosts, Claudia Jordan and Tamar Braxton, didn’t really get along during the taping of the late night talk show. When asked about the much talked about beef between her friends, Tiny tried to down play the whole thing, “I think it will go away eventually … I don’t think it’s that major.”
While Tiny Tonight is expected to return soon, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle returns to VH1 TONIGHT! HH caught up with Tiny during her press rounds for the third season of the hit show and she promised this season will be full of fun, new experiences and “special” talks with the kids who all seem to be worried about their dating lives. “Our 17 year old Zonnique she will be…we’ll be talking to her about dating. Tip’s going to be telling her, I guess, the kind of guy that he feels should be trying to approach her and date her and what they should be doing”, Tiny said.
Check out our full interview below and make sure to tune into T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, tonight at 10/9c on VH1.
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
