Braxton Family Values star Tamar Braxton covers the latest issue of JET magazine with her husband Vincent Herbert. The couple who’ve been together for nine years talked making their relationship work and their first big challenge.
“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 added that the biggest low in their relationship came when Vincent suffered a pulmonary embolism and had to be rushed to the hospital,
“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.”
And for those still thinking Tamar is a gold digger, Vince has the answer,
“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.
To cement the point Tamar added,
“When I met Vince I had my own house. I had my own car. I was independent.”
We’ll be seeing more of this fun couple when they star in their own spinoff.
