Tahiry Jose Dishes On Turning Down Joe Budden’s Marriage Proposal: ‘I Can’t Trust Him’
Last season of “Love & Hip Hop,” on-again, off-again lovers Tahiry Jose and Joe Budden appeared to part ways for good after Tahiry declined the rapper’s dramatic Times Square proposal. Though she briefly touched on it during the season, the vixen-turned-reality-star recently opened up to The Breakfast Club about her decision.
“I can’t trust him,” she said. “As far as the proposal, it was real, but everything Joey said about giving me that ring; that’s what Tahiry wanted. You’re going to give me a ring after you cheated because you thought that’s something I wanted? When do you give me a ring because you wanted to be with me forever?”
“We did talk for like a month or two after the proposal. But once it was about to air, he kind of started to act funny.”
Tahiry also touched on those pregnancy rumors that were floating around a few months back.
“There’s always rumors. Yeah, there was a rumor. Joey tweeted something like that. And then I was seen sipping champagne at some Time Warner event, so. I mean really, do the math. It was like hours later. I’m not ready for kids. I’m ripping and running everywhere. I mean, could you imagine me? I mean, what am I gonna do with a belly?”
“I actually have a meeting tonight. We just sit down and see what works for Tahiry, what works for VH1 and what’s going on in my life. That’s how we regroup after every season. So we’ll see. I’d definitely do another season.”
As for her beef with ex-best friend Rashida Ali:
“That’s what people do on camera—you never know what happens and how people might react. People change in front of the cameras. That caught me by surprise.”
