During a chat with S2S Magazine Jamie Foster Brown, Trina Braxton responded to the backlash she’s been getting from fans who were pissy that she stepped out on her husband Gabe Solis.
“Some people call me a slut, which I’ve never been. I’m a lot of things, but a slut ain’t one of them. Other people have been very, very supportive.”
Trina explained that she had been feeling vulnerable and that’s what led her into the arms of another man.
“It wasn’t about getting back. It was about my own self-esteem.”
When asked why she performed oral sex instead of just having full-on intercourse she said,
“Honestly, Auntie Jamie, I’m one of those people, I don’t have but so many notches on my belt. When it comes down to it, numbers mean a lot to me, and I’ve never been the type of woman to spread myself thin and let every Tom, Dick and Harry—or every Tom’s hairy d*ck—to associate with me and my body; not to sound vulgar. I don’t allow that with my body; I just don’t. I do not. I did not, and I will not.”
She went on to reveal that the incident actually happened a few years ago but she chose to reveal it to Gabe recently (and yes…..he was told about it BEFORE the show).
But one has to wonder, why would Trina put her business in the streets like that? She said,
“One of the reasons, Auntie Jamie, is that throughout the season, first starting with season 1 and then in season 2, we kept talking about Gabe did this and Gabe did that and Gabe cheated… at the end of the day, everybody was feeling like Gabe was this bad guy and Trina was this princess. That’s not the truth, Auntie Jamie. It’s not a one-way street. He is not the only one with fault in this marriage.”
And as she reflected on the “transaction” it seemed like Trina was truly sorry that it happened…but it taught her a lesson.
