Tamar Braxton recently sat down with Black Enterprise and addressed a variety of topics head-on with her token candor and humor. In the interview, the youngest Braxton sister shared why she thinks her sisters may have been jealous of her as well as why her husband Vince no longer manages big sister Toni. “Ms. Dot-Com” also spoke about plastic surgery, the rumors of her bleaching her skin, and the misconception that she married her husband only for money.
On whether the show caused sibling rivalry:
At first I did, and it was very difficult for me because I would get accused of acting like a prima donna. But I’m like, if y’all think about it, I’ve been making the same faces since I was about 2 [years old]. I think the problem is when you see it on TV it’s magnified. I believe it was difficult for my sisters to watch it and they became defensive. But again, I’ve always been candid and honest. I believe everybody is back to normal and it was more of the surprise the first season.”
On the split between Toni and Vince:
I think people grow up and people want different things. When you’re an artist and a sibling is getting the attention or some of the opportunities for the same person it can be difficult. I think in any relationship there are changes and in this case Toni and Vince had to do what makes them happy and that’s all I’m gonna say about that.” (Laughs)
On rumors she married Vince for his money:
One that really bothers me is that I [married] my husband for money. What? Where did that come from? Are you saying that because he’s thick? How do you know I don’t like teddy bears? I mean, really? Have a seat. Do people realize that [those comments] are very disrespectful to my relationship and friendship with my husband? I find no humor in that. To have people [speculating] about why you like what you like. Don’t they think that could affect how he feels about himself or me? If we didn’t have that openness and friendship it could. I’m sure those comments hurt his feelings. Sometimes people wanna say, ‘With all that mouth Tamar has…’ and I say to [all of them], have several seats because I’m gonna always stand up for myself, my husband and our relationship.”
Her belief in plastic surgery and whether she bleaches her skin:
Yes, I believe in plastic surgery because I believe you’re supposed to enhance what you are not happy with. And if I bleached my skin then I wouldn’t have stretch marks, right? So boom!” (Laughs)
