As cameras take viewers inside his Atlanta home, T.I. reveals his experience growing up as part of a blended family where he interacted with kids who were the result of his father’s relationships with other women. According to the entertainer, the interaction looks to have reinforced his desire to keep a sense of awareness and unity for his children.
“When I was comin’ up, my father had other children from other women and we did see each other, know each other. But I always said if I ever had children that I would make sure that they grew up and spend time together, regardless of the mother or circumstances,” T.I. stated about the blended family he shares with wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris. “I mean we have a house full of children, a lot of runnin’, a lot of messin’ up. That’s how you know that a house has been lived in.”
In addition to T.I., “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” will feature an interview with former “Family Ties” star Meredith Baxter, who will talk candidly about the influence of the classic sitcom as well as life with her wife of two years since opening up about coming out as a lesbian in a 2011 appearance on the “Oprah” show.
Others profiled on the show include with MTV’s “Downtown Julie Brown,” who opens up about her surprising background and life as a wife and mother and former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry.
Rounding out the show will be a visit to the New York City home of “Little House on the Prairie” star Melissa Francis, who left Hollywood for Harvard. The mother of two, who now works as an anchor on FOX Business Network discusses her challenging childhood as a child TV star, and how she got her first big break in news.
