Exclusive Interview: Tiny & Shekinah Address Rumors & Shekinah Explains Why T.I. Doesn’t Like Her!
Our girls Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris and Shekinah Jo, from ‘The Family Hustle,’ have landed their own reality show called Tiny and Shekinah’s Weave Trip! The show will air every Monday night at 9:30pm on VH1 and these two are reality’s craziest duo. I had the pleasure of sitting down with the ladies for a 2 part interview about the show and their personal lives. Right before we started the interview, T.I. stopped by to have a quick breakfast with his wife (they were so sweet together,) but Shekinah kept her distance. So, when I asked the besties, what their greatest challenge was as friends, it was no surprise that Shekinah said T.I.! She feels that he doesn’t like her because Tiny spends a lot of time away from him with her and he doesn’t necessarily trust what they are doing. With so many rumors of trouble in their marriage, infidelity, separation and of course the Floyd Mayweather incident, many people believe that Shekinah was advising Tiny to leave her husband. But, according to Tiny, that is not the case at all! Shekinah also took the time to address any rumors that she may want Tiny (sexually) and both ladies talked about the song they recorded, ‘Cut It Off,’ and they warned women to not actually cut the penis off, but they offered some advice on what to do if your man isn’t acting right!
What is the greatest challenge you’ve faced as friends and how did you overcome?
“Well, her husband. It’s not that we don’t get along, I have no reason to get along with him or not get along with him. He don’t have any connections to me, that’s her husband. That’s my friend. So, we don’t have a reason to get along. I don’t have a reason but to respect him, say Hey and keep it moving. I don’t have a reason to have a conversation with him. That’s where women get it twisted at, it’s not my place. She’s been my friend forever, not him. (Your loyalty is with her) Yeah! It ain’t to him! And at the end of the day I appreciate my loyalty to her, she helped a girl out! But, my loyalty not to him. It’s not that we beefing, cause I’m not beefing with him. He take care of my friend, he do what he need to do far as my friend and her family, so I ain’t got no beef with him, it’s not my place. Yeah. He beefing with himself! I don’t get in whatever they got going on, I don’t get in that! I tell my friend to stay home with her husband, that’s where she need to be, she’s married. “
“She always giving me great advice. I think it’s just the perception….”
“And because she loves me and we hang out with each other a lot. When we can, we hang out and we have fun. And it’s like (T.I.) ‘What are ya’ll doing?!’ It’s like impossible for like two women I guess, the crew to be around each other just having fun like girls! But, all we do is girl stuff. Talk about hair, talk about maybe what’s going on. Who done hit somebody in the elevator or not! You know? We ain’t even..we don’t be in the drama though. I can;t have sex with her, I can’t take care of her. I can’t make sure she straight. He do a damn good job in all them areas. I’m not trying to take her away! And for the world…I like wood. D-I-C-K. I don’t bump girls. I’m just saying to each it’s own. And I love Gay America. But, at the end of the day, I’m just not into that, I need something that’s gone stick in me. I don’t wanna bump.”
Tiny and Shekinah also addressed the song they recorded together called ‘Cut if off!’ They explained that they didn’t want women to actually cut the genitals off, but they did offer some very interesting advice…
“Cut it off!”
“It ain’t nothing to cut it off! If they doing you wrong, cut they *ss off!”
“I was talking to K Camp and he said, I like the song, but why ya’ll had to say cut it off tho man? I was like, not the actual (penis) we just said cut the man off because the penis is what drives the woman crazy, so if you cut them off in particular, there you go!”
“How about, we thought about that remember? We was like I hope a fool don’t go out here and cut somebody wood off for real. Yeah, we thought about that like, Lord Jesus, please don’t let none of these dummies go out here and cut the wood! We need the wood! Just if the wood start acting up let it go for a little while! It will come back if it’s meant! Cause if you don’t ever let them go, they ain’t gone never know no better. They gonna continue to treat you like some sh*t! Wake up ladies!
