T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle (Monday, 9 p.m. ET, VH1)

“I know Obama was supposed to be there, but I think more people showed up because they knew I was coming.” —T.I.

“Oprah helps so many rich people and poor people. I need help with etiquette. I want everything.” –Shekinah

This week, T.I. and Tiny are on their way to Chicago, with Shekinah in tow, much to T.I.’s disappointment. Apparently, he needs Tiny to be at his side while he’s promoting his single, and Tiny needs her hair to look good while she’s promoting the single, so that settles it — Shekinah is coming. Funny, the two BFFs spend very little time with T.I. Most of their trip is spent searching for Oprah in the streets of the Windy City. The show ends with T.I. making an appearance in a local parade, where Shekinah satisfies her craving for celebrity when she stops the drop-top in which they’re riding to take a picture with Jesse Jackson on her iPad. Jesse Jackson, Oprah, whoever.
