Check out our exclusive with the Love & Hip Hop star below:
After watching so far this season, we can see why things have gotten a bit rocky between you and Joe Budden again. What are some of the lessons you've learned from your relationship with him?
I’ve learned from all the situations I’ve gone through with Joe. It’s hard to go through heartache and pain, and in relationships it’s hard to deal with these kinds of situations, but ultimately you grow from them. Then you start to really know what you want and what you’re looking for. So it’s never a mistake, it’s just a lesson learned and experience, and you need that in order to grow.
Do you feel the real Tahiry has been portrayed well on the show?
Absolutely man! With me, I walk in there and I can only be me. What you see is what you get, so thus far, I’m okay with how I’m being portrayed. I am that emotional. I am that fiery Latina. I try to keep it as real as possible even when we are put in situations you wouldn’t put yourself in regularly. But yeah, what you see is Tahiry all the way.
What do you want viewers to think of when they see you?
I’m sure a lot of women can relate to my situation. I think that what I’m going through in my relationship and even dating a rapper, it’s really relatable and happens in regular life. So yeah, I want the audience to know I’m just a regular women going through regular life situations, it just so happens to be in the spotlight. And I choose to share it just because if I can help one person, it’s pretty dope.
