Following the hot story, some gossip bloggers contemplated if the fire may have been secretly started for insurance bucks.
Fire investigators are working to uncover the cause of a blaze that ripped through Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle’s Atlanta nail salon. It happened just before five o’clock, Monday morning. Now, rumor is the incident may be all a part of an insurance scam headed by T.I. and Tiny. Don’t believe me.. Ask Alfamega. Here’s what the fire Captain Sabrin Puckett had to say: “Fortunately fire personnel were able to control the fire before the entire contents of the structure ignited, which would make it much more difficult to determine the cause and origin.” No one was hurt during the blaze. The investigation is ongoing… (Diary of A Hollywood Street King)
Outside of the salon buzz, Tiny is reportedly working on a new late night talk show.
The two stopped by VH1’s ‘The Morning Buzz’ earlier today to dish about their new gigs as well as give a little relationship advice. When asked about her new talk show, Tiny revealed: “I’m very excited about that. I’ve been wanting to do a late night talk show with my homegirls — my friends — for a while now. So I have my new show, it’s called ‘Tiny Tonight’ and it’s going to be a late night talk show, the first late night talk show on VH1. It’s just me and my homegirls and we’re talking about what’s going on in the world. It’s a younger, next generation of ‘The View.'” And on her lingerie line: “I had an idea of doing a lingerie line for the girls..’The Riders’…I ride a lot. Just a lingerie line. *looks at T.I.* He approves.” (Necole Bitchie)
