Tamar breaks away from her sisters to star in “Tamar & Vince”
Sassy Tamar Braxton emerged as the breakout star of the “Braxton Family Values” reality series featuring the Braxton sisters, and now she’s the focus of the new reality show “Tamar & Vince” with her husband Vince Herbert on WE tv. Herbert manages Lady Gaga and also guides his wife's career, which leads to drama as the couple juggles their personal and professional relationships in front of the cameras.
Braxton sat down with Loop 21 to discuss her complex relationship with her husband, her struggles to start a family, and her opinions about reality television and the Ochocinco/Evelyn Lozada divorce.
Loop 21: How has starring with your husband Vince Herbert in a reality series affected your marriage?
Tamar Braxton: Starring in a reality show with my husband Vince has brought us closer. There were things that we did not know were issues that were brought to light and it forced us to deal with them. We are now much closer.
Loop 21: What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a manager who is also your husband?
T.B.: The advantages are knowing that he truly loves you and wants the best for you and that you can speak freely and openly and express your true feelings. You don’t have to watch your words as much as you would if your manager was not your husband. The disadvantage is that I have a hard time knowing how to separate our business and our personal romantic relationship. When its date night he doesn’t want to talk business and often I do, so I have to learn when to talk business and when not to. I am very anxious to have a successful music career and I have to learn how to listen and have patience.
