According to Straight from the A, Toya Wright is a leading contender to be the next housewife on Real Housewives of Atlanta. This news has been met with a bit of displeasure by my readers who have emailed me their sentiments. In generally they feel she is too young, too uneducated and too “hood” to be chosen. To that I say, “Have you seen Sheree and Marlo?” Today a reader in New Orleans sent me a heartbreaking story (and picture) about Toya’s mother, Nita. Click through for the tea.
Here is what my reader reported today from New Orleans:
I get that sometimes family can be a hassle for “celebrities” especially when they don’t help themselves but when you incorporate said family into your reality tv show like theyr’e really a part of your life but then shun them away when the camera’s stop rolling it says alot about your character. Today I was buying some crawfish from a local store here in New Orleans and here comes Nita, Toya’s mom, begging everyone to buy her a pound of crawfish. It was just sad all the way around. Everyone was basically ignoring her and after a few minutes of her ranting about how no one loves her and how her daughter just used her (ppl were saying she should call up toya and wayne for money) she started begging everyone for spare change to pay for a shelter for the night. I personally would never let this happen to someone in my family but its just sad to know that her family has so much and they don’t help her.
I asked the reader about the baby she is holding and she said she didn’t know where the baby came from. She said that Nita was going down everyone in the checkout line asking for change to buy a pound of crawfish. A pound of crawfish sells for $3.17. Nita also indicated that she had no place to stay that night and was asking people to help her come up with enough money to get into a shelter of some kind. This story is a sad one; however, it seems that Toya maybe an appropriate person to replace Sheree on RHOA. It looks like there will be much to report on.
