Tamar Braxton and Vince Hebert have been dealing with a massive tax debt for a while. Vince reportedly failed to properly pay taxes for years and they are totally broke!
Despite the fact that the Tamar & Vince stars have a hit reality show, Tamar’s singing career (she was once nominated for a Grammy), and Tamar’s gig hosting The Real, they are in real danger of losing everything. That includes their Calabasas mansion because they can’t pay their $1.6 million-dollar tax debt and the IRS has placed liens on their earnings and possessions. Oops. In fact, Vince at one point owed over $3 million in back taxes to the IRS!
You know what I’d do with the paycheck if I ended up on a reality show (listen up, Andy Cohen!)? I’d pay off my flippin’ student loans. I would not buy a car (although the show’s producers would probably buy one for me so as not to embarrass the rest of the cast with my ride), I would not not live above my means…I would just start slowly chipping away at my massive law school debt. What is it with people that they don’t think they need to pay their bills after they receive a little bit of fame?
I’m looking at you, Benzino. You know I adore you, but you didn’t use your Mona money to get a neck implant, and you sure as heck didn’t use it to pay back Uncle Sam. Now, before y’all start in on me, I realize that Benzino’s career in hip hop began long before his stint on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, as did his money problems. Geez Louise, though! Pay your debts, dude!
WE tv announced today that it has renewed both Kendra On Top and Tamar & Vince for a third season!
Tamar Braxton is going to be one busy woman! Not only does she have her new talk show debuting this fall "The Real", filming Braxton Family Values and taking care of baby Logan and her singing career, she's returning for season 3 of Tamar & Vince! The show will premiere this fall.
From the press release: “Tamar & Vince” spotlights the youngest Braxton sister, Tamar, and her husband/manager, Vince. During the second season, viewers followed Tamar’s burgeoning solo career, the release of her album “Love and War” and the birth of her first child – Logan Vincent Herbert."
I hope Tamar Braxton's hit Love & War is raking in the dough because otherwise she'll be singing a tune of Love & Debt!
The IRS is demanding that her husband Vince Herbert pay up 3,325,107.70 in back taxes.
According to documents uncovered by Radar Online, the Braxton Family Values star hasn't properly paid taxes in years! In 2010 Vince was short $66, 315.30. And in 2011 he shorted the feds an astonishing $2,267,845.97. WHAAAAAAAAA!
Tamar performed a few songs decked out in her $2000 Matthew Williamson flight suit and got the rumor mill stirred up a bit about the outfit. A few think that in the closer shots she appears to be hiding a baby bump.

Tamar's new song "Love & War" which she wrote and produced with husband Vince Herbert is a huge hit for the reality star – and as a bonus it's also good. In fact so good that Lady GaGa is promoting Tamar's song on Twitter. With GaGa's support Tamar's hit made it to NO. 1 on the iTunes charts!
The news series with a working titled ofTamar & Vince “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.”
Production on the show begins in March, and WE tv has ordered eight, one-hour episodes. “We are so very excited for this amazing opportunity,” said Tamar. “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.”
The series will also follow Tamar in her ongoing pursuit of pop super stardom with hubby Vince helping and supporting her every step of the way. The press release promises “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.”
Tamar & Vince is scheduled to premiere in fourth quarter 2012. No word yet on whether Toni Braxtonis super jelly over her sister’s spinoff!
