Due to rapper Joe Budden’s obsession with publicly sharing videos that depict he and his ex-girlfriend Tahiry Jose candidly sorting out their relationship woes, many of us are already acquainted with the video model and Love and Hip Hop newbie. In a recent interview with VH1, the video vixen opened up about how her relationship with Joe Budden exposed her to the world of modeling.

On Joe’s videos:

“The videos were really raw and uncut. We didn’t know how to edit so they got to see the real relationship. Me and my ex-boyfriend show them what really happens at home. At the time I don’t really think any relationship in the music industry had allowed people to see what really goes on in a house without any editing. They got to see if I was angry, if I was happy, if he clowned around. They really just got to see the true essence of a couple. The world was really interested in Joe Budden and Tahiry. I didn’t get it because we were just two kids in love just doing what we did. But, from then on, people wanted more.”

On how the videos prompted her modeling career:

“From the first clip, radio stations began asking who I was and that bought me into magazines. So one day I get this phone call about a shoot for King Magazine. I automatically got nervous. I wasn’t ready. I hadn’t been in the gym for a couple of years. I was ready to have kids and just get married. And then I thought, before I get older, before they start sagging and I start to gain weight and have some babies, ‘I might as well go ahead and do this.’ So I take the shoot and go ahead and do the spread, two weeks later we get a phone call and they say ‘Tahiry you got the cover.’

Although Tahiry and Joe’s relationship seemed quite toxic, you can’t really hate on the fact that homegirl walked away with a seemingly successful modeling career.

    I don’t understand how Joe Budden made her career when he not even doing well with his own?

  • mia

    she got offended by a photographer saying “we need more cheek action, what do you think we hired you for?”

    I agree! The audacity of them! A woman accepts payment to be photographed 95% naked in compromised poses, how dare they not show her any respect! And how dare you expect her to flaunt her booty just because that’s all she’s known for! Such misogyny!

  • mac

    using the term modeling to describe what these women do is an insult to all the actual models.

    Career…. Claud have mercy. So the act of stripping naked so men can take pictures of you (WHICH ANY WOMAN CAN DO BY THE WAY….) is a sought after career path??? O ok…. And did she really have to add she was ready to have kids and a family??? Chile cheese… U were on a path for this z list stardom all your life… I hate when these hoes try to act like this lifestyle just falls in their lap. I live in LA and u really have to put yourself out there to get this type of attention… It ain’t no walk thru the mall type ish. So thes chicks can kill all that… They ho that road for a long time before they luck up on a simp… BELIEVE THAT!!! But I guess the plan is to sell this sob story before she hit this show and every one is calling her every name in the book… Hope that works out for u…
