Tonight at 10 p.m., Toni Braxton’s sister Tamar will officially step out of Toni’s shadow with the premiere of her new reality show, “Tamar & Vince,” which will follow the married couple as Vince tries to manage his high-strung wife’s career.
Tamar and Vince Herbert walked the red carpet last night in New York to celebrate the premiere tonight of their new show, which debuts on WEtv.
While it’s been clear that Tamar was the breakout star of “Braxton Family Values” soon after the show premiered in April 2011, now the 35-year-old singer will no longer have to share the stage with her superstar sister Toni and her older sisters Trina, Towanda and Traci, who have all been backup singers for Toni.
Tamar even spoke about it on the red carpet last night.
“I want to be known as Tamar, not Toni Braxton’s sister and definitely not Toni Braxton’s back-up singer,” she said. “I don’t give a damn if she’s Beyonce and Madonna mixed together. I don’t want to sing nobody’s background.”
As for the red carpet fashion, Tamar wowed in a ’50s inspired fit-and-flare dress while Vince, owner of Streamline Records, who has managed the careers of big name artists like Lady Gaga and Tamar’s sister, Toni, matched her retro look in a checkered shirt and bow tie.
