Tamar Braxton AKA She- Me-Her, graces the cover of Ebony Magazine’s October issue with her beautiful baby boy, Logan. In this article, we see a different side of Tamar, unlike the loud, tell it like it is.com baby sister of Toni Braxton, she seems to be a lot more serious. She addresses rumors about plastic surgery and sets the record straight about being abused in two past relationships. She also addresses her issues with low self-esteem and how her husband Vincent Herbert helped her feel better about herself.
On Rumors of Plastic Surgery:
I don’t have plastic surgery. I never had plastic surgery. I had a nose procedure done because I had to. I had no cartilage in my nose, I have a piece of cartilage from my ear put into my nose. I had a medical procedure done. I have no plastic in my nose. And when I shared that with the world, now I have Botox, and different kind of fillers. Now I touch my face, which I never touch my face…Everything is real on me.
On Having Vitiligo:
Anybody with skin issues knows that that’s a very sensitive subject. And that’s why I’ve never shared that I have Vitiligo, because I do. I’ve always had it, since I was a young girl. It’s not as bad as others because everybody has it differently, but I’ve certainly had mine diagnosed. That’s why I tan. People say, “You bleach your skin!” But I tan just so I can have a better tone on my skin, boo!
It’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten pregnant. If you shake my hand now, to me it’s more noticeable. But when you get diagnosed with a skin disorder, it’s hard. It does weigh on your self-esteem. It really does. But I’m done defending that. I’m not bleaching my skin and if I was bleaching my skin and I felt like saying so, I would, but for the record, I am not.
On Being Abused:
I almost had to tell my story to each individual and then I decided that’s not what I’m going to do. I can’t make anybody believe, I can’t change anybody’s mind about anything. (The abuse,) it happened. I’m not all the way comfortable with sharing a lot of what happened to me (yet), but what I said was true. When I’m ready to talk about my abusive past I will, I’m sorry that I’m not. But if it wasn’t for (God), I wouldn’t be here.
On How Vince Helped Rebuild Her Self Worth:
The thing that I love the most about (Vincent) is that he’s helped me with accepting what happened to me and helped me realize that that’s not my make-up, (being abused) is not who I am, it hasn’t hindered who I am, it hasn’t stopped my integrity. I really appreciate him more and more everyday
I loved this article and I think it showed a very different side of Tamar Braxton. I have always been a fan of hers and I think that it great to see that she is no different from many women who have dealt with abuse and self-esteem issues and like these women, she is a survivor.
