Tamar Braxton Gifts Terminally Ill Woman With Chanel Purse
31-year-old Tara Middleton has an incurable brain tumor, but as one of Tamar Braxton‘s biggest fans–her dying wish was to go window shopping with “The Real” host. When Tamar caught wind of Tara’s tear-worthy story she reached deep into her closet to find something meaningful to gift Tara with.
“It ain’t always about the new,” Tamar said growing emotional. “Sometimes it’s about the old. Now, when I got my first big check, I was raised to believe that every girl needs Chanel. So what I did, I bought my first Chanel bag, and I kept it since I was 18 years old. I would love for you to have it and look at it and get your strength when you don’t see me on TV and you can’t find it within yourself.”
Inside a neatly wrapped box was a vintage Chanel bag that she had purchased when she was 18-years-old. She gifted it to Tara, saying,
“When you’re feeling down and out and you can’t handle it, honey, you look at this Chanel bag and you’re like, ‘You know what God, I know I am here for a reason. You’ve kept me this far and you’ve kept me this long and this is what life is all about.’ You hold onto your faith, and you hold onto yourself.”
