TAMAR BRAXTON: ‘I HATED BEING PREGNANT’
Did you know that Tamar Braxton filmed her reality show, ‘Tamar and Vince,’ while angry? Yes, it’s true. The bubbly star with a personality that draws the masses to her music was mad about the lies that she had been told while pregnant with her son, Logan.
“People lie to you,” says Tamar in a recent interview with Flaunt magazine. “I was one hundred percent open and honest on Tamar and Vince because I was upset. I didn’t instantly connect with my baby, and no one told me this was common. I was jealous because Vince and the baby connected instantly. It’s not that I didn’t love him; it’s not that I didn’t want to connect with him. I was upset because I didn’t instantly connect with him. I didn’t cry when I first saw him. I was confused. I was like, ‘What do I do now?’”
The star goes on to tell media that expectancy was the worst for her. “I hated being pregnant. I felt like Invasion of the Body Snatchers. It’s beautiful and it’s great just like everyone says, but there’s another side to it. My back. My feet. My skin went absolutely nuts. I had the itchies the whole day. Imagine scratching all day and you can never get to the itch.”
Although more children are not in her plans, Tamar does have a busy schedule to juggle as mom and entertainer. “We just got picked up for The Braxtons season four. I’m really excited about that,” explains the star. “I go on tour tomorrow with John Legend. I’m obsessed with him, and he didn’t know it until I started giving interviews. He asked for me even before I had my album out, and that was really special to me, because I respect him so much.”
Logan is Tamar and husband Vincent Herbert’s first child together. He was born on June 6, 2013.
