We’ve all been scratching our heads trying to understand what we could possibly get out of watching Tamar and Vince and the awkwardness that their marriage life must be.
And now, we have an answer… but we’re still not convinced.
TheInsider.com: What can we expect to see from Tamar and Vince in the new reality show that is different from Braxton Family Values?
Tamar: Well, you know, everyone sees me as Tamar the loud mouth outspoken sister. Now you get to see me as Tamar, Vincent’s wife. I do have a different personality when I’m in the wife role. I think that’s important, you need that balance.
TheInsider.com: You do have a successful marriage and there are few married couple reality shows and even fewer geared at African-Americans. Why do you think that is?
Tamar: I think that there are a lot of people who are just not married! And while it’s okay NOT to be married. It’s also okay TO be married! I just want to show the side. It’s great to have that foundation, but it’s also okay to be yourself too. And have fun with your life. You really can have it all and you don’t have to settle.
TheInsider.com: Will you give people insight into achieving it all?
Tamar: Definitely. That’s the whole point of us doing it. It’s important to me that people don’t roll over, they can have everything they want!
TheInsider.com: Will we see any interaction of Vince’s family on the show?
Tamar: I don’t know yet! That’s really up to Vince, whatever he wants to do, I’ll totally support it. If they come into his life again, then hopefully everyone gets to see that. Everything is not the Braxton family, where everybody is raised close and everybody is close friends. Some people stop talking along the way, some people stop being close along the way, and I think that’s important to see too.
TheInsider.com: How is Vince’s health? He had a scare earlier this year.
Tamar: He is in the process of recovering. He looks amazing. You can now call me doctor Tamar!
Aaaaand now we have a visual of Vince naked. SMH.
But don’t think all this “being Vince’s wife and doctor” talk has deferred Tamar’s dreams of being an R&B chick.
TheInsider.com: You’re working on an album, what kind of music are we going to hear?
Tamar: I definitely don’t think you’ve heard this from me before. At first I wasn’t allowed to sing what I wanted to sing and I think that’s where the frustration came from before. It’s opinionated, it’s funky, it’s fresh. This is the true definition of Tamar.
TheInsider.com: Will there be any other artists that you plan on working with for the album?
Tamar: Not as of now. And I’m fine with that. I’ve waited my life to do MY record. SO I’m cool rocking with myself! [Laughs]
TheInsider.com: Is there a release date set?
Tamar: Definitely coming out next year.
It’s not, Tamar. It’s not.
