While still stuck in the house working thanks to Sandy, I once again had to endulge in “The Wendy Williams Show” this morning. On the program this time around was Vince Herbert and Tamar Braxton, and it seems the “happy” couple was on their media rounds for the sake of doing damage control. For about a month now rumors have been swirling that the two were heading for a divorce, and the rumors only heated up more when it came out that the two were selling their 15,000 square foot mansion after having lived in it less than a year. Well, they say the move is just a coincidence, and the divorce speculation is false. A healthy looking Vince and his lady also talked about whether or not they have any regrets about doing their show and on possible beef between Oprah and Toni Braxton.
When asked about where the rumor about a possible split came about, which Wendy had even gone out of her way to claim Tamar planted out their in the media for publicity (rude), Tamar denied the rumors and said she would never do such a thing:
I don’t know. I don’t really, lie because it’s hard for me to remember stuff. I would never put a rumor out like that…because this is my baby. I don’t play with that one. But we’re selling our house, that’s a fact.
Perfect segway, because Wendy then asked Tamar why the two were selling their lavish 15,000 square foot home, which was only a space for three people by the way, when they just moved in. Well, Tamar pointed the finger saying it was all Vince’s idea because he found an even bigger and better home, but he says he did it for his lady: “I want you to have everything you need, babe. We need a little bit more space.” I know what you’re thinking, more space for a couple with no children? But why? Vince wants a gym for himself, a little beauty salon for Tamar to get her glam on…out of his way, and adding all these things would have been even more costly, so it was actually cheaper to just move instead of adding on to their now for sale crib.
As for regrets, she doesn’t have any regarding what she put out there about herself, her man and their relationship, but ironically, she doesn’t like people thinking they can comment on it. As she says, “I don’t have any regrets…its just that a lot of people think it’s okay to comment on how you run your relationship.” And while they weren’t getting along perfectly on the show, she says nothing they’ve gone through would be worth trying to divorce over. They prefer counseling. “When we got married, we decided that divorce was not an option.”
I think what Toni was saying was that people were looking at her differently because they thought she spent all her money at Gucci and Prada and stuff like that, which she definitely didn’t, and I can attest to that. But I felt like Oprah really did hurt her feelings and Toni had every right to say that she hurt her feelings. Oprah’s a human being as well, and she hurts people’s feeling sometimes.
