Singer and reality star Tamar Braxton is looking summertime fine as she goes colorful for the latest issue of PYNK magazine which hits newsstands July 13. In the cover story, Tamar talks about meeting her husband Vince, desire to start a family and being friends with Mary J Blige. Tamar will be hosting this weekend’s BET Awards red carpet which airs at 6pm on BET Sunday (July 1). Below are some excerpts and more pictures:
On when she first realized Vince was the one.
“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 her desire 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 relationship with Mary J…
“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.”
