Even with the multiple monkeys on his back she remained ride or die for her husband ( now ex ) and family. Although it got to the point that she had to do what she had to do for herself and her children. Letting go of the one time rock of the family. That once put her on a pedestal, then become the rock that was drowning everyone and himself. With all her struggles she decided to make an encouraging book. To help any girlfriend, spouse or person going through something that only themselves can get out of. Doing it with class and the faith or God. She tells the world all of her life story.
Recently published “You Think You Know But You Have No Idea” by Tashera Simmons. An in-depth memoir, the book chronicles the life of Tashera Simmons in an emotionally touching story that truly opens up to detailing her life before, during and after her marriage to infamous rapper – DMX.
