For most couples, signing up for a reality TV show together is like embracing a kiss of death for the romance, and there have been a slew of failed relationships and marriages to prove that curse is real. But in Tamar Braxton’s eyes, her marriage to husband Vince Herbert wouldn’t have lasted this long had they not been on “Tamar & Vince” together.
In a recent interview on “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show,” Braxton spoke about her life on reality TV and says that being on the show with Herbert helped her to see the flaws that needed fixing in their marriage.
“Had it not been for the show, ‘Tamar & Vince,’ I probably wouldn’t be sitting here today,” Braxton explained. “It was a lot of things going on in our relationship that we didn’t realize until we watched it back.”
Braxton went on to explain that many of the marital issues she faced with Herbert ended up making their way into her Love & War album as well.
“Those songs would have never been written,” she said. “It was therapeutic and some things had to be said. And sometimes when you’re in a relationship, you don’t know how to bring things up.”
Braxton says that she wanted to share her stories in love so that her fans could listen in and use it to help their own relationships.
“What I really wanted was to have a CD where you can put it in and it speaks for you,” Braxton explained. “Then you can spark up the conversation without it being argumentative and crazy because you ain’t getting nowhere with that.”
You’ve got to commend Braxton and Herbert for being one of the few black reality TV couples who have survived reality TV. Hopefully, their good luck and hard work in marriage continues. – nicholas robinson
