Reality tv couple Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert cover this months issue of JET Magazine. Opposites attract and Tamar and Vincent are as different as they come. While Tamar is loud and animated, Vincent is quiet and calm. And though she LOVES to be the center of attention, he likes to play the background (as evidenced by his super successful career as a low-key music executive.)
Inside the magazine the couple opens up about their strong marriage which is fueled by their close friendship. Vincent also dismisses the rumors that Tamar is a gold digger. A few excerpts:
Vincent on Their Relationship:
“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.”
How does Vince feel about Tamar’s over the top attitude?
“He’s my husband, and I don’t talk to him the way I’d talk to a girlfriend.”
And though he is very private, Vincent revealed that he started writing songs at the age of 13 and he strongly believes in marriage because his parents were together for 25 years (both are now deceased).
“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.”
Vincent on if Tamar is a gold digger
“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 says: “When I met Vince I had my own house. I had my own car. I was independent.”
Talking about Tamar’s upcoming album, they revealed that she is signed to her husband’s label and Interscope. Tamar says (in third person), “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.”
The couple will also debut together on their own show this season and they say it’s won’t impair their marriage.
“Let me tell you why reality TV marriages fail,” Tamar injected. Because they’re being fake, and then when they see it on TV they argue.”
The couple recently purchased a 6.5 million dollar home. Glad this duo has a clear vision of their future.. That’s the good stuff. If you would like to hear the gossip click here.
