…marriage and family, then the industry,” David revealed to CP. “We never give anything the same weight that we give our marriage and family because any time you balance something, you give it weight to balance it.
Our marriage, our family, our relationship far outweighs anything we’ll do in this industry or in this business.”
When asked about how they keep the flame alive after so many years, especially in the entertainment industry Tamela simply says, “I do things to keep him turned on; it is never a dull moment. I try to give him a different lady- I may try to change my hair color or change up something, especially in the bedroom. I try to make sure he is keeping his eye on me.”
“One day we can try to make love,” David adds. “We hanging off the door until we can’t breathe!”
Tamela continues,”We talk about everything. If something happens, we try not to go to bed angry with each other and whatever upsets me, we talk about it. Even if it takes calming down for a few minutes and then going back to it. We don’t let things fester a long time.
We keep it all out in the open and we don’t have any agendas. Everything is together- there are no separate accounts. Everything has both of our names on it. This is how we keep everything open in our relationship so we can always put everything on the table.”
