Remarried Husband After Massive Weight Loss
After pulling off some unusual roles in her onscreen career, the Sparkle actress implemented a unique and surprising move in her personal life as well when she decided to remarry her husband of 25 years on 20 April 2013. The couple renewed their wedding vows to one another on the occasion of their 25th wedding anniversary.
Talking about her decision to remarry her long-term husband in an interview given to the US weekly in 2013, Tamela mentioned the reasons behind the unusual event and details regarding the ceremony,
“When we got married 25 years ago, we didn't have enough money for a wedding. We wanted a fairytale wedding, so we picked an enchanted forest theme and hosted everyone at the Joule Hotel because it had the feel we were trying to create — old-world romantic, beautiful, chic and lush — and a place everyone would love. Our grandbabies were dressed as little princes and princesses.”
However, there was one surprise at the wedding, and it has continued ever since. Tamela has been involved in a massive weight loss coming to the later stages of her career. At 52 years of age, the actor cum singer seems to be fitter than ever. And there is a reason behind her weight loss as well.

Talking to blackdoctor.org in 2017, Tamela revealed she got involved in the weight loss campaign after her husband got diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. She further explained her motivation behind the weight loss and the details regarding it,
“One of the main struggles [of breaking into the industry] was my weight! I’ve always been good enough to be heard but not seen. I’ve lost over 140 pounds, I used to be a 30/32 and now I’m at an 18/20. I don’t have issues with diabetes or hypertension, but I don’t want it to happen.”
Hence, with a healthy lifestyle, Tamella along with her husband continue to enjoy their married life and the beautiful family. With her net worth accumulating to around $3million, the singer-actress has new career ventures to pursue and thus remains ever so motivated to build her legacy towards greatness.
