Celebrities are no strangers to scrutiny with their private lives on constant display as the media provides a platform for their fans and the world to see. For some of celebrity couples, this has proven to have destructive effects on their relationships.
Motivational speaker, founder of Women Of Strength Organization and soon to be author, Tashera Simmons, joins husband multi-platinum hip-hop recording artist DMX, on VH1′s newest reality show, Couples Therapy. Recently, Tashera paid a visit to our very own Cherry Martinez to talk about the show, X, and her upcoming projects. Couples Therapy premieres on Wednesday (March 21) at 9 pm on VH1.
ON HOW SHE WILL NEVER LOVE ANYBODY ELSE THE WAY SHE LOVES X:
“That’s my childhood sweetheart. We met when we were 11; that’s when we first met. Then we got together when we were 18. So he’s really, like, all I’ve ever known.”
I don’t think I have anybody that’s not Team DMX and Tashera.
ON DMX VERSUS EARL (X’S REAL NAME):
“No but guess what, I love Earl. You know what I mean? Because Earl is who I met; that’s who I fell in love with…he definitely has different personalities.”
“He definitely is bipolar. He switches up so much, but it’s like when I met him, he was Earl. And as he came into this industry, I’ve seen him turn into X and now it just got full blown. And it’s like, you already know, this industry is just so crazy. Now Earl is just…and it’s like, that’s who I’ve been holding onto for so long.”
