Tamar Braxton Gets Candid About Her 'Hard Times' After Tumultuous 2020


Tamar Braxton has learned from her personal struggles.

During the entertainer's newest episode of her podcast, Under Construction, Braxton, 43, spoke with guest Bevy Smith, 54, about overcoming obstacles and the star knows all too well about hardships. "I find that my hard times made me appreciate my good times," Braxton told Smith. "If I didn’t allow those bad times to penetrate in my life and take the time to really understand being down, I would not have appreciated my ups and that's why God won't let me fall. That's what I feel like."

Braxton is onto a fresh new chapter after a tumultuous 2020. Last year, the star was found unresponsive in her hotel room, filed a restraining order against her boyfriend and severed her ties with WE TV. Towards the end of the year, Braxton fired back at the network for including her hospitalization for Braxton Family Values.

Part of the pair's conversation fell on living below their means and Braxton was quick to explain how she and her son, Logan, 7, bounced back after her separation from Vince Herbert in 2017. The two were together for nine years. "After I left Vince, Logan and I moved into a two bedroom apartment,” she confessed. “A lot of people didn’t understand why I was telling people that. I felt proud of it actually. I can afford this. My bills are paid every single month."
