When I was first introduced to Tamar Braxton via my television screen, I was one of those that felt like she was a show-off, overly dramatic and I even questioned whether she really loved her millionaire husband Vincent Herbert.
As I watched Tamar on this last season my opinion of her changed, I saw a highly sensitive and often times self-conscious woman as she planned to perform for the Soul Train Awards. I saw a concerned and caring wife as she stood by Vince’s side when his health failed.
Now that Vince is better Tamar is planning a spin-off show with her husband who is also manager to the mega star Lady Gaga. In this month’s issue of Pynk Magazine, Tamar talks about her marriage to Vince, including when she realized that he was the one.
On when she realized that Vince was the man for her I wasn’t checking for Vince at first. He and I were friends. But it wasn’t until I found out that he was seeing someone that it hit me. I realized I had feelings for him! When he told me that his relationship at the time was coming to an end, I knew it was my time to make my feelings known. After that relationship ended.. he and I started dating and eventually married.
On when she realized it was time to start a family I realized I wanted to have a child when Vince was sick in the hospital. I love him SO much and it was such a hard time for me. He is my rock. I was extremely nervous the entire time and I thought if I lost him tomorrow all I would have are photos. And I realized that I wanted more than that. A child would be a living reminder of our love.
On her friendship with Mary J Blige My sisters are my best friends for the most part but I’m also very close to Mary J Blige. When Vince was in the hosptial she was so supportive. Mary and [her husband] Kendu are the best. They made sure to check in on me and prayed with me for Vince’s recovery. Mary is such a genuine and kind hearted person I’m blessed to be able to call her a real friend… Not an “industry friend”.
