Tina is a former prostitute who goes straight, working in a restaurant with Roxanne, with whom a sexual relationship is implied.
Little is known of her past except that she was a prostitute, and Pimp Luscious was her pimp. A beating he gave her left her with a nervous condition that causes excessive blinking, which led her to quit the sex trade. She also was there with Roxanne and Twan when they were arrested moving a shipment of marijuana from Chicago to Atlanta. Twan is given three years in prison for this.
At the end of season 3, Tina had quit her job working with Roxanne, stating that she was tired of Roxanne "telling her what to do" and planned to get back together with Twan.
