I won't even pretend to say that I know anything about Braxton Family Values, or that the names Tamar & Vince mean anything to me. Obviously I've never watched the show. But I'm sure some of you have, and will appreciate this piece of news better than I did when I received it:

I won't even pretend to say that I know anything about Braxton Family Values, or that the names Tamar & Vince mean anything to me. Obviously I've never watched the show. But I'm sure some of you have, and will appreciate this piece of news better than I did when I received it:

NEW YORK, NY – December 19, 2011– WE tv announced today that the network has greenlit the original seriesTamar & Vince (working title) for its 2012 programming slate.  The series will showcase Tamar Braxton and husband Vincent Herbert as they navigate their hectic lives, from Tamar’s solo album to Vince’s busy career as a successful music producer.  WE tv has ordered eight, one-hour episodes tentatively scheduled to premiere in fourth quarter 2012; production begins in March.

Tamar & Vince is a great addition to WE tv’s schedule, especially as we expand into a third night of original programming catering to the underserved audience of African-American women that love Braxton Family Values,” said Kim Martin, President & GM, WE tv.  “Tamar is a huge part of what’s made that show such a success; she is completely over the top and our viewers just love her!”

“We are so very excited for this amazing opportunity," said Braxton.  “With our family series, Braxton Family Values, we aim to show audiences the true meaning of family and sisterhood, and with our new show, marriage.  Our journey as two driven individuals that love as hard as we work is one we think audiences will relate to.”

Tamar & Vince is a spin-off of WE tv’s hit original series, Braxton Family Values, where youngest sister, Tamar, has proven to be the show’s breakout star.  This new show will follow Tamar in her ongoing pursuit of pop super stardom, with Vince helping and supporting her every step of the way. In Tamar’s world, anything can happen, but Vince is always there to be the voice of reason, and bring her back down to earth.  Viewers will get an inside look at their complicated yet devoted relationship, including how their upscale lifestyle must adjust as Vince recovers from a recent life-threatening health scare.
