Nas Baby Mama Carmen Bryan Prepping Reality Show w/ 50 Cent’s Baby Mama Shaniqua Tompkins
The mother of Nas’ oldest child, Carmen Bryan, has plans to take her talents to reality TV. In an interview with Mara The Hip Hop Socialite, she reveals that she’s working on an ensemble non scripted show with the Shaniqua Tompkins, the mother of 50 Cent’s oldest son, Marquise Jackson.
Shaniqua Tompkins and I are working on a reality show, and I’m not allowed to share the title yet, but it will be filmed in New York and Los Angeles. We will have a few other ladies participating in the show, and basically, it’s a show based on urban women in business empowering one another.
There will be no wig snatching and wine throwing – we’re trying to put a spin on black excellence showing women in an organic environment that can come together, inspire one another, work on their brands and their businesses, and if there is any tension or disagreements, it’s organic, it’s resolved, and we move on to the next aspect of the program. Just basically showing our lives, our children, our family, and again, trying to create a new spin on reality television. Showing black women in a better light.
Carmen also explains the motivation behind her new book.
It’s a cautionary tale. It’s a short story about overcoming financial dependency and growing – becoming self-reliant. I went through so many different challenges as a mom – as a parent – as we all do, however, I never considered when everything was quote, unquote gravy that I would have financial issues down the path. It’s just something that you don’t consider when you’re comfortable, when you’re complacent, or maybe you do and you put it on the backburner like I did.
I had a few businesses during the course of the time I was receiving child support, but I will say I always had the cushion, so I didn’t necessarily take my own businesses to the level that I could’ve taken them to. The potential was there, as it is always, however the drive wasn’t. So basically, what I’m doing is I’m just telling my story. I’m not complaining, I’m not explaining – I’m just giving my experiences, what I went through.
