Toya’s new hit reality show allows us to journey with her as she continues to carve out a personal and professional path for herself while dealing with the burden of keeping her troubled family together and out of the perils of street life. Aside from her successful show, Toya is currently promoting her anticipated new memoir, “Priceless Inspirations,” will be released by Farrah Gray Publishing on April 15.
