As the FBI closes in on Tonya Collins, this information is surely going to incense her many victims though serve as powerful ammunition for the likely criminal prosecution:
From a former employee:
I worked for tonya as her personal assistant from aug. to january this year, taking care of her kids, cleaning, cooking, etc. She had so much money to throw around all the time. I remember one day she went and bought her daughter kayla a princess bed, it was like 2 grand, and then the next day she bought her two sons, and two daughters each new computers. I painted their bedrooms for them and redecorated, she spent like $15k in a matter of days. I never once thought something was fishy. I just thought she made really good money. One thing that was weird, was she told me in secret that their house located at 6100 Pool road was in her friend’s name, because when she was ready to be done with her husband james, she didnt want him to be able to touch the house, so her friend put it in her name and she paid the mortgage. she told me not to tell james . She also told me she bought kayla , her 15 year old, a brand new car, but not to let james know because he would be mad.
I feel like such an idiot not to realize what she was doing. I remember one time I accidentally washed something of hers from Lane Bryant that should have been dry cleaned and she got so mad at me . She screamed and yelled and told me ” do you know how much f***ing money this dress costs ? ” Now Im thinking, no Tonya, I dont and neither do you, because it wasnt your money to begin with. I feel so sorry for her kids, especially their twins they adopted, Vincent and Vonny, even though James was home all day with them, I would be cleaning or cooking and they would lay in bed screaming all day, or fall asleep in their high chairs, because he would leave them their for 2-3 hours and ignore them. I would try to take control but then he would get adjetated. Vonny would have diaper rashes so bad she would bleed if you tried to wipe her, then tonya would come home screaming because vonny was screaming. I didn’t know what to think or say. It was so sad. She only cared about $$$$.
I am in shock over what I am just now learning about. I started my own small business last August, and became a personal assistant for Tonya. I worked for her with her family from August until January of this year. Tonya was never home, I would go to her house in Collyville every morning, make her 7 kids breakfast, take her older kids to vollyball practice or soccer practice, make them lunch, do their grocery shopping, do their laundry, etc. Tonya would always pay me cash on Friday, she would go to the bank and withdrawl about $4000.00 every week. I would see the receipt from the bank and think to myself ” man, how does she make that much money ? ” . She would pay me my earnings, about $500 a week, then she would go on a shopping spree , every week… buying her kids all new computers, bedroom sets, clothes, etc. She spent over $3000 in one day of shopping at target and other stores, like it was no big deal. She told me in January she couldn’t afford my services anymore and !
let me go. I was in shock because I could not believe she couldn’t ” afford ” to use me anymore, she was never there for her kids and I felt so sorry for them. She still owes me money. I bought gifts for christmas for all her children, and for her and her husband, and I didn’t even so much as get a thank you. I wasn’t a victim through surrogenesis, but I am just as disgusted as everyone else.
For those wondering, Tonya has not escaped unscathed. A Default Judgment has been entered against her in the multi-million dollar class action lawsuit that is currently being prosecuted. According to sources, Tonya’s husband threw her out of their gated Texas estate and kept custody of five of her children. Tonya has apparently moved back to Central California to live with her ex-husband. I am also informed that the FBI investigation has heated up and Tonya’s day of reckoning may be close at hand.
