Tell It to Toy!

Tell It to Toy! Productions OWN Life with La Toya La Toya Jackson John Polly Advice Column 16 Magazine

John Polly, story producer on WOW’s upcoming OWN series Life With La Toya, writes:

With the passing of the original Dear Abby recently, the world is feeling a dearth of sound advice. Well, here’s a flashback to show that Ms Van Buren wasn’t the only sage lady in town. Back in the day, wowlebrity and pop culture icon La Toya Jackson once worked her magic as an advice guru. At the tender age of 16, she penned a column for teen-pop bible,16 Magazine. In one invaluable installation of “Tell It to Toy!” (a phrase that needs to become our new universal mantra), little teen Toy-Toy explains that to bust out of her own bashful ways, she’d let her “groovy jewelry” serve as an ice-breaker and go-to conversation topic! “I want to tell you, girl, that that’s a clue to overcoming shyness.” Genius-ness. She also alludes to her famous brothers as “jivers.” Oh, the kids and their lingo! Take a peek at one of her columns above. And by the way… La Toya tweeted this vintage image herself, after a fan sent it in. See – she’s still in touch with her peeps!

Expect more La Toya wisdom and Jackson family insight when her new series Life with La Toya hits OWN this April. And yes, there will be groovy jewelry, too. Some things never change.
