Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert are the cover couple for the newest edition of Jet Magazine. The outspoken baby sister and her often reserved and quiet husband opened up about marriage, Vince’s health scare, Tamar’s music career and more.
Vince On Marriage And Tamar Being A Golddigger:
My mom and dad are deceased. [his mother, a nurse, was killed in a car accident when he was 13. His dad passed away a few years later. ] My parents were together for 25 years. I even remember their last anniversary. That’s how much I paid attention. He rented a limousine, made a reservation and they went to this hall in West Orange, NJ. He died of a broken heart. He adored my mom. I love my wife. This girl is so far from being a gold digger. I wouldn’t be with someone like that for nine years. [Tamar is quick to tag in] ‘When I met Vince I had my own house. I had my own car. I was independent.’ We have fun, which is what a relationship is all about. Tamar is the greatest. Like, we’d just drive to Disneyland, then go to the movies and fall asleep. Because we are friends and you can’t stress that enough in a relationship. We have our arguments and disagreements, but that’s life.”
Tamar On Vince’s Health Scare:
It was the first thing we ever had to deal with outside of the normal relationship thing. It went from dinner, to a doctor, to a hospital, to he’s in a coma. I had to sign a lot of papers. I’m happy that we were friends because when you’re going through ‘what would he do?’ you remember those conversations. At first Doogie Howser was his doctor, and I was like no. I want someone with gray hair. We have a new outlook on life because of what happened. Everything before now has been erased.”
Tamar On Her Music Career:
I have to do this. I wake up in the morning and want to go to the studio, because if I don’t go, ‘her’ is going to be upset [referencing her unnamed alter ego in the third person.] I don’t want to put it in a category because when you do that you limit yourself. It’s just going to be hot music. Great songs that appeal to everybody. [ Vince says,] She’s already signed to my label and Interscope. You have to take the time to do everything right.”
Tamar On Why Reality Show Relationships Fail:
Let me tell you why reality TV marriages fail. Because they’re being fake, and then when they see it on TV they argue.”
I really think they are so cute together! I can’t wait until their reality show debuts!
