Toya Wright says her stint in jail was one of the worst experiences of her entire life ... claiming she's emotionally scarred ... even though she spent less than 24 hours behind bars.
As we previously reported, Wright -- Lil Wayne's ex-wfe/baby mama -- was locked up in Georgia yesterday after cops discovered a warrant out for her arrest during a routine traffic stop.
Toya tells us the whole thing stemmed from a speeding ticket that "slipped through the cracks."
But Toya, who appeared on the reality show "Tiny and Toya" -- is adamant she will never go back to jail because she's so traumatized by the things she saw on the inside.
Toya wouldn't get into specifics ... but says her fellow inmates were treated "inhumanely."
"I wouldn't wish jail time for my worst enemy," Toya says ... adding, "What I witnessed was so bad that I don't even want to leave the house right now."
Toya says she's even considering turning the experience into a positive by working as an "advocate of better treatment for prisoners."
As for the speeding ticket, Toya says, "Please believe I'm working on lightening up my lead foot."
I'm NOT A

Beyonce's father is hitting back against accusations he's a deadbeat dad ... he claims he paid what he owes in child support ... it's just a paperwork screw up.
TMZ broke the story ... Mathew Knowles' baby mama Alexsandra Wright says he's behind on 2 months ... to the tune of $24K.
According to sources familiar with the situation, a few of the payments were only slightly late, but past the deadline for being credited, so it appeared Mathew didn't fork over what he owed.
Here's the problem... Mathew is now behind for December -- payment was due on the 1st. We're told he plans to pay up before it officially becomes delinquent.
Think of it as paying your rent, only with a kid.
We've reached out to Wright but haven't heard back.
Kobe Doesn't Get Black America
... According to Jim Brown
54 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Kobe Bryant turned his back on a teammate and his culture by ratting out Shaquille O'Neal -- at least that's what NFL legend Jim Brown thinks. Do you agree with Jim ... is Kobe out of touch with African-American culture?
Plus, one of Alex Rodriguez's reps is now in big trouble with MLB too. His crisis manager claims he can't go to NYC to testify because he's broke! Anyone buying that? A-Rod's crisis manager should be making tons of cash, no?
And Justin Timberlake cures all for Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. They chilled with JT after a major loss last night. Shouldn't they be more upset?

It's Not as Tight As You Thought
12/11/2013 10:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Sharon Osbourne is taking full responsibility for misleading her fans about the tightness of her hoo-ha ... admitting she MADE UP the story about getting vaginal rejuvenation.
Osbourne appeared on "Howard Stern" on Sirius/XM this morning and exposed herself -- saying she was simply messing with Graham Norton when she recently told the BBC talk show host she had a surgical procedure to tighten up her lady junk.
"I made it up just to be flippant," Sharon said ... adding, "How could I do that after I've had so much ill health? Now I'm not gonna start putting scaffolding up my vagina?"
And now you know.
Lil Wayne's Baby Mama ARRESTED
12/11/2013 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Wayne's baby mama/ex-wife Toya Wright was arrested Tuesday in Georgia ... TMZ has learned.
The details surrounding the arrest are sketchy at best -- with one law enforcement official telling us Wright was pulled over in College Park, GA yesterday ... and during the stop, the cop noticed a warrant out for her arrest.
We're told ... the warrant was issued after Wright failed to appear at a recent court date -- though it's unclear why she was supposed to be in court to begin with.
Toya was hauled to a nearby station, where she was booked and posed for an "Are you frickin' serious?" mug shot.
Toya, who starred in the reality show "Tiny and Toya," was eventually released from jail Wednesday morning at 1:30 AM on a $290 bond.
The story was first published by MediaTakeOut.
Family Believes Road Bumps Sealed His Fate
12/11/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paul Walker died after the speeding Porsche in which he was riding hydroplaned on reflective plastic markers in the street ... at least that's what his family and accident reconstruction experts believe.
Sources close to Paul's family tell TMZ ... the family has been in touch with stunt experts who have gone to the crash site and come back with what they believe is a solid theory -- a speeding car that hits the plastic markers -- called Botts' Dots -- will hydroplane, causing the driver to lose control.
We've learned the experts have told the family ... a car going speeds approaching 90 MPH will lose traction after hitting a series of Botts' Dots. It's akin to driving on ice -- and control is further compromised by the fact that the Porsche was outfitted with special racing tires that have very little tread.
And there's this ... Porsche sent out a memo to dealers back in 2004, warning about control problems with the Carrera GT, saying, "This vehicle cannot drive over a Foster Beer can that is lying on its side. It will crush the can and damage the carbon fiber under panels," adding, "You need to be aware of what type of road surface you are on (dips, pot holes, seam heights, etc.)."
Law enforcement sources say they have not concluded the exact cause of the accident, but it appears they're looking at the Botts' Dots ... as a viable theory for triggering the fatal crash.

Parenthood has clearly not cramped Pauly D's style .... he happily strolled out of Bootsy Bellows nightclub in West Hollywood late last night ... but there's no doubt -- being a father is front and center in his brain.
Check out the video ... it's not so much what Pauly says -- we know he's fighting for full custody and it's nasty -- but you can see and hear how much he loves his kid.
It's pretty rare when celebs come off so real and unfiltered.

Smells Like...Something Bad
12/11/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The actress who played one of Roseanne's daughters on TV would never make it on "The Voice" ... but we gotta give her props for her ballsy performance at a Brooklyn karaoke joint.
Sources tell us Lecy Goranson took to the stage just before closing time last Thursday .. when the place was almost empty. She let loose ... with an ear-splitting rendition of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
Only problem was ... it kinda stunk.
Lecy was one of two actresses who played Roseanne's daughter Becky on the TV series, "Roseanne" (the other was Sarah Chalke).
At least she sings better than Roseanne.
