Toya Wright has had a rough couple days. Earlier this week, entrepreneur and former reality star was jailed in College Park, GA due to an unpaid parking ticket. Admittedly “scarred” by the experience, the 30-year-old vowed to advocate for the better treatment of prisoners. Way back when we first met the New Orleans native she was introduced to us as rapper Lil Wayne’s ex-wife. Since then, Toya has remarried (to Mickey “Memphitz” Wright) and launched several successful businesses. Bouncing back from the arrest, she dropped by Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 radio station chatting about her brief jail stint, how she feels about the ‘Lil Wayne Baby Mama Label’ and  being a positive role model for her daughter, Reginae.

Peep the excerpts below.

On if she’s bothered when she’s referred to Lil Wayne’s baby mama: 

It does but I mean I totally get it, that’s the way I was introduced to the media but it’s just also a form of disrespect. I’m married and for one I was married to him. If you say anything about Lil Wayne don’t say babymama cause he got like what 4 of those, say ex- wife….Don’t address me as his babymama because I wasn’t that, I’m someone else’s wife….But that’s how you pump the story up, I guess it looks better cause Lil Wayne went to jail and I guess for the media, I guess that’s what makes more sense. But sometimes, yes, that annoys the hell out of me.
 On being a positive role model for her daughter: 
I just try to be the young parent that continue to do positive things and set a positive example for my little girl who’s watching me everyday. So she sees how I just be hustling, you know doing my thing or whatever. I be trying to keep it busy, you know, just grind. And it kills me all the time, she comes to my like, ” Mommy, I wanna write a book.” Then go ahead and write one, if that’s what you’re trying to do, I’ll help you with that. So she wrote a book ; Paparazzi Princesses’ with her God sister….And then she came to me like, ” I wanna do this line” she was like, ” I wanna call it ” Shut Up’. I was like that’s kinda…She was like I’m telling you the teens are gonna love it. And she right cause they selling like crazy. So she was right on time with that ’cause at first I was like, ‘I don’t know about that, that’s kinda rude’. She was like, ‘they have a lot of stuff that’s rude, they have songs that’s rude’. She made a point. And to be honest with you, I tried to do a t-shirt line, you know something positive and it didn’t sell. Now she trying to do the ‘Shut Up’ hoodies and it’s going crazy. She got a couple of projects that we working on coming up in 2014, so I’m very proud of her.

    I like Toya & agree with her 100%. Even though she was introduced to the world via Lil Wayne, that was years ago and she has since grown up, moved on & remarried. It is disrespectful to both her and her husband.

  • Anonymous

    I like her. She is always very postitive.

    I totally agree with Toya. This same thing was running thru my head when I read the TMZ article about her arrest. The story was titled…”Baby Mama”. Would they refer to Jessica Simpson as a baby mama…absolutely NOT…but she is. Toya was Lil Waynes ex-wife and now someones current wife. Its very disrespectful.

      Your right about Jessica.But,you know what our people down south gave “us” that word and we adopted it.I for one can’t stand that word.and I don’t use it in my conversations.Where I’m from we say his daughter’s mother or his sons mother.

    I can appreciate what she is saying.She was Wayne’s wife not his baby mama.She is someone else’s wife and should not still be called that.I think that’s disrespectful to her current husband.
