Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris graced the cover of Rolling Out magazine looking super gorg as always. Despite all the ‘Tiny’ haters, I have and always will love her. I think the only reason so many women began to hate is when she got into a relationship, now marriage, with Tip. No matter what the people say, I’ve always thought they were a nice looking couple and with their reality show, you can’t help but see they have a loving relationship and that T.I. knew exactly what he was doing when he chose Tiny to be his wife.
Tiny is seriously a woman of many hats. She’s a wife, mother, businesswoman and has to make time for herself so how does she do it? Well Rolling Out magazine caught up with Tiny and she dished on how she manages to hold it down from the bedroom all the way to the boardroom.
Excerpts from interview and pics below:
On balancing business with marriage:
A lot of people say that things change — and maybe my husband might say something different — but I don’t really see much of a change. I just feel like I’ve been doing some of the same things as a married woman, that I was doing years before … so it’s kind of like continuing on with the papers now. Honestly, I’m just enjoying it. I’m enjoying being called a wife, because it’s different than just being in a relationship … it feels a little better now.
On how she felt being called ‘wife’ for the first time:
I was kind of like ”damn, that’s me.” I felt like a lucky lady and I love it every time I hear it. It just does something to me … it sends a signal to my body and tells me to jump all over him whenever possible [laughs].
On keeping it spicy:
You have to try new things and be open and talk about things that you’re interested in. You also have to talk about things that he’s interested in and see if you guys can come to a happy medium, and just get wild … that brings a little something extra to the bedroom.
On being in an industry that is always critiquing women in the spotlight:
I do it with confidence. I believe that confidence is everything for a woman. You just have to be comfortable with who you are and what you bring to the table. I’m at the point in my life where I pretty much don’t give a s— what people think … but if I see something that I don’t like on Twitter and I feel like I want to say something back, I will, because that’s just me. I’m not really quick with my temper, though, and I stay positive and surround myself with positive people. At the end of the day, positivity is the thing that you need the most … that and confidence.
On days when she doesn’t feel pretty:
Again, it’s all about positivity. You’ve got to know that today is just a bad day, and you just have to take it in and keep moving because tomorrow can be a better day. I never let things keep me down, so if it’s a bad moment right now, I will deal with it keep it moving. And if I’m feeling like I’m not looking right, I just don’t take any pictures.
