Antonia "Toya" Carter is not just busy prepping for the premiere of her new BET reality series, Toya: A Family Affair, which airs tomorrow night (Tuesday, April 12) at 10PM/9c. She is also promoting the release of her book, Priceless Inspirations, which hits bookstores just three days later.

Because some might think it's taboo for a celebrity's ex-girlfriend to pen a book, Toya wants everyone to know that this is no tell-all. "Most people, when they’re writing books about their lives and they’re involved with somebody like a celebrity or whatever, it’s always a tell-all," says Wayne's ex-wife.

To further prove her point, Toya reached out to Lil Wayne to write the book's forward. She tells, "[Wayne wrote the forward] when I went to visit him in prison. I thought it would be a good idea...I just wanted the fans and everybody to know that Wayne is supportive of the book and it’s far from a tell-all."
