Tamar Braxton loves her family. “Braxton Family Values,” the reality show that features her, her mom and sisters debuted at number one this past season. She and her husband, Vincent Herbert, chronicle their marriage on another WeTV reality show, “Tamar & Vince.” And even now, Tamar is one of the co-host of the talk show, The Real. As the oftentimes outspoken Braxton, Tamar is not shy about her life, nor the love that she has for her family.

The youngest and most outspoken of the Braxton’s six children, Tamar started singing as a toddler. Evelyn recognized her daughter’s talents when one day Tamar sang “Can you please get me some toilet paper!” Tamar claims she knew as early as three years old that she wanted to be center stage.
Tamar’s husband Vince recovered from a pulmonary embolism (the same ailment that killed Mia Amber Davis and Heavy D) he suffered in November 2011. “He’s now walking, he’s not in a wheelchair,” explains Tamar. “We’re grateful. He’s probably the healthiest he’s ever been. He had a pulmonary embolism along with a lung attack – which is like the heart attack of the lungs. We’ve changed our lives. He exercises, he eats right. There are no longer sodas in our house. It’s been a lot for us to go through.”
Since her husband’s bout with sickness, Tamar has continued to spread the good word of health to her entire family. From her firstborn to her sisters, she’s creating opportunities for herself and everyone else to stay healthy as well.
Some quick tips/advice from Tamar about how to deal with family:
1. Speak Your Mind – No matter what it is, it’s better to say what you mean instead of bottling it up to explode.
2. Be Patient – With a big family like the Braxton’s, sometimes your voice or your way, may get lost. Stay the course and don’t give up. Just be patient and keep pushing forward.
3. Apologize When You’re Wrong – In the heat of the moment, we can say and do all sorts of things, but when you look back and see that it’s wrong, apologize for it. People will respect you more for it.
Despite the brash talking and altercations she may publicly get into with her family, Tamar shares how she really feels: “Family’s can go through ups and downs. Who’s right or wrong but at the end of the day I love them and wouldn’t trade them for the world.”
