Vixen: What’s the biggest misconception that people have of you?
Tahiry: That I’m uneducated. That I only date rappers. I’m in the industry and I’m getting to know other people in the industry, so it’s kind of hard to date regular guys because either they get intimidated, they don’t understand the lifestyle or he’s your fan; he loves you for the first two months then he becomes insecure. When I first started dating Joe, he was really not throwing anything. I was paying for a lot. People talk, but they don’t know. I dated him when there was lent on his fan and a blanket on his window. Who knew he was going to be this big?
Vixen: Can we look forward to a Tahiry show?
Tahiry: Hopefully. There’s certain things I wouldn’t do for a check, but that’s just me. My life is exciting I guess, I don’t think so, but everybody else thinks so. Ultimately, producers and what not, sit and talk about what’s going on. I didn’t know I was going to get proposed to on TV; my life is just drama. I’m the oldest of 14, my father just had another baby, I have a lot of responsibility that my family has left me with. From having sisters, work, and the man situation—that I can’t seem to get right. I wake up with 100 texts a day.
Vixen: What’s next for you?
Tahiry: Right now, I’m dealing with the club. I have nail polish coming out with Color Club. My nail polish is kind of cute because it’s scratch and sniff. I took a lot of my favorite colors and tweaked them a bit. I’m in love with whiteout white, so I did that and added a little pink. I played with my hot pinks. It comes out 2015 in February for Valentine’s Day. It’s called “Love Tahiry” and when you polish it, it will smell like a scent. I have one called “champagne” that smells like champagne. It will be sold in stores like urbanoutfitters, nail supplies stores and discount stores. I have two independent films coming out. I’m working on jewelry—not costume jewelry—like rings and earrings and some chains that I like.
I’m really interested in opening a gym. That’s very premature, but I woke up one morning and I was on my way to the gym and I just thought of it. I’m thinking about something cozy with personal training and yoga classes somewhere the average girl can feel comfortable. Kind of like a spa vibe. We’re working on Tahiryonline.com, we want to make it more interactive. I plan to do some charity work. I like to give back. I’m dipping my feet in everything I love.
