‘Tiny’s Nail Bar’ Goes Up in Flames  

Even in the midst of premiering the second season of her hit reality TV show, a hip-hop wife is dealing with a suspicious accident that recently left her business scorched.

Tameka “Tiny” Cottle-Harris is said to be reeling today after a fire was reported at her nail salon, Tiny’s Nail Bar. The Stockbridge, Ga., establishment opened in 2010 and was shown on her VH1 reality shows “Tiny & Toya” and ”T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.’

 Atlanta’s 11Alive News reports that the entrepreneur’s salon was destroyed by fire on Sept. 3. Fire officials tell the news station that a structure fire was reported at the Walt Stephens Road location just after 5 a.m. Firefighters were able to contain the blaze before it spread to nearby businesses. The fire department is still investigating an official cause.

While not directly referring to the incident, the mother of three alluded to it in a message posted on her Twitter account. “I’ve had one crazy day,” she wrote. “God was really testing my faith today but im thankful and blessed still!” -danielle canada
