The Brown family has grown steadily in popularity via social media over the past year. Now they've seemingly broken into the industry as wife and mother Tabitha Brown, who plays Octavia in The Chi and host of All Love on Ellen Digital Network, announced it's time to retire her husband, Chance Brown. Notorious for her cynical critiques of celebrities and their lifestyles, Wendy William had a few foreboding words regarding Tabitha Brown and her husband that she shared on her talk show The Wendy Williams Show.
In a video shared on their family Youtube channel, Tabitha shares a short story entailing the struggles before the fame.
The family originally moved to Los Angeles in 2004 with no other immediate family members or friends. They arrived without jobs, with only $8,000 saved up, and dreams of Tabitha pursuing her acting career. Chance Brown undertook working as a police officer within the LAPD to provide for his family and allow his wife to follow her dreams.
"The thought of my husband having to wear a bullet proof vest to work everyday and putting his life on the line for other was commendable but still scared me." Tabitha stated in her video announcement. "Give me five years bae imma blow up imma get this acting thing and then I'll take you out of there, I'll retire you from LAPD and then you can pursue something that you love, a dream you have." she continues.
Wendy took to her talk show with her opinionated commentary on Tabitha's announcement. She shared insight that sounded like it came from personal experience dealing with her now ex husband, Kevin Hunter. Williams went on to morning talk show to say, “Nope. I was married to one of those. I make the money and so and so forth. Go live your dreams, buy a business, stay with me but go, go, go. See how that turned out. I predict that this marriage is going to be on real rocky ground in a moment,” William said. “Then they invest in stuff and lose the money. Then they invest in something else and the money gets swindled or stolen.”
The Christian actress responded and asserted that keeping God first in their marriage has allowed them to remain resilient and ultimately see her dreams come to pass.
"I was his dog in the fight, and he believed in me, and we did it together for the last 15 years," she asserted. "I did every year with him in the LAPD, and he did every year with me with rejection and nos in this entertainment industry. However, God has blessed me. … I've been praying on this for a very long time, and it has now come to pass.
The actress went on to say she would be praying for the talk show host. “I pray that someone will love you enough to see you when you are not well. To see when you need true support. To see you when you need compassion. To see you when you need kindness," Brown said. "I pray that somebody loves you enough to sacrifice their life for you. I pray that type of love finds you so that you can understand why I don’t want my husband to put his life on the line anymore, wearing a bulletproof vest if he don’t have to, and if it’s not his desire."
She finishes her response video by glorifying God and what he's done within her marriage. "That is the power of God," Brown said. "It's also the power of allowing God to be first in your marriage. That's how it remains successful; we keep Him first. He is first in our marriage. Not money, not business, not success, but God. He's first."
