Always her number one supporter, Vince shared that Tamar’s sweet, loving, loyal and caring nature are the reasons he married her. “She's a real person. She's the girl next door.”

And she’s also a woman of strong faith, which is why she made sure to feature a gospel track on her album "Love and War."  “A lot of people don’t get second chances. This is my sixth record deal,” she says. “This doesn’t happen. I knew I could sing and I knew I could dance but nobody really believed that much (in me) so I (had to be) really strong in my faith and I know if it wasn’t for God, I would not be here. I couldn’t do this album without people knowing how I feel about it.“

Love her or love to hate her, Tamar Braxton is a complex, multi-dimensional, sweet and always opinionated woman who has it all: a career on the rise, a loving husband, a baby on the way and two hit singles under her belt.  As Tamar would say: “She won!”
