Love & Hip Hop fans across the nation were thrilled to learn that on-again, off-again couple Tahiry Jose and Joe Budden finally stood still long enough to admit that they loved each other and wanted to work things out. Unfortunately, their loving reunion was short lived. As millions of people watched their love unravel once again at the start of the current season, it was hard not to feel for the video-vixen-turned-actress. In an interview with Latina, the Harlem native opened up about her recent heartbreak and lessons she’s learned along the way.
“I’ve learned from all the situations I’ve gone through with Joe. It’s hard to go through heartache and pain, and in relationships it’s hard to deal with these kinds of situations, but ultimately you grow from them,” she said.
She went to discuss how her situation with Joe helped to show her what she wants and does not want out of a relationship.
“You start to really know what you want and what you’re looking for. So it’s never a mistake, it’s just a lesson learned and experience, and you need that in order to grow.”
Tahiry also expressed that she believes a lot of women watching the show can relate to her situation.
“I’m sure a lot of women can relate to my situation. I think that what I’m going through in my relationship and even dating a rapper, it’s really relatable and happens in regular life. So yeah, I want the audience to know I’m just a regular women going through regular life situations, it just so happens to be in the spotlight. And I choose to share it just because if I can help one person, it’s pretty dope.”
