Gabe Talks Trina, Jealousy and ‘Not Having Sexual Intercourse’ With Anyone

Ever since the first season of Braxton Family Values, the pressure has been on Trina’s husband Gabe to make up for his infidelities. But what REALLY happened that made Trina so upset? We caught up with Gabe for a revealing interview — and let’s just say he was relieved to tell his side of the story.

Last season on Braxton Family Values, you wanted to buy Trina a “starting over” house. Have you actually started over?

Uh… honestly no. We’re sort of still in the middle. She’s still real upset at me for lots of stuff that I did. Every day is a different day for us as far as our relationship goes — really it all depends on Trina. I am hoping that we can get to a good place one day, that she can forgive me for my infidelities and we can start over. I’ve asked her, let’s date again, try to get things working. I would like to go back with her to couples therapy. I would like to say: “Let’s start over. You’ve done some things, I’ve done many things, let’s put them aside and start new.” She’s like, “You’ve done a lot more than I have so I have a lot more putting aside.” (In this week’s episode of Braxton Family Values, Trina admits to Dr. Sherry that she cheated on Gabe.)

What do you think caused you to be unfaithful?
I think people are unfaithful — I’ve always had issues before I met Trina. I honestly don’t know; that’s why I’m going to a therapist (referred by Dr Sherry). She was gone all the time and I was alone all the time. I never had sexual intercourse with another woman — nobody ever believed me about this. Trina tells me to take a lie detector test and I’m like ‘’go ahead.” I was unfaithful, but at a certain level I always backed off, for my own sanity, the guilt. A marriage is hard work — whoever says it isn’t is lying.

Can Trina trust you to be faithful now?
I believe she can. I think I have some issues I need to work on — I’m seeing a therapist who has helped me deal with some things where marriage is concerned. I think I can be faithful to just Trina, but it’s really getting the opportunity to prove that.

So what went wrong in the marriage?
It’s always been rocky… it’s real difficult being married to someone who travels a lot. It was real difficult for me to accept that but I’m in a better place now. When she’s with the band, she’s mostly around guys… it was also hard for me to take a new role as a father with my stepsons from Trina’s first marriage.

Why does it seem like you’re the one who’s jealous of Trina?
Trina always told me this: Among the sisters, they’ve always been each others best friends, because other women trying to act and sing would be real catty and competitive. So Trina was very close to her male coworkers. When I first met Trina she was working in corporate America — I wanted her to go back into doing this, but I didn’t know the larger role I’d end up having to play.

Are you trying to trust her more?
I’m trying to work on trusting her a little more — if I keep snooping around, I will eventually push her away and she’ll be gone. It really makes her more frustrated and angry at me.

Has living with Towanda, Andre and their kids put an extra strain on your marriage?
Me and Andre have never really got along. This is what really happened: He called me up one day and said, “Listen, man, Toni is kicking me out of the house. Can I stay in the guest room?” I was kinda like, “Uh, let me think about it.” He didn’t call me back at all to say yea or nay — Towanda and the kids showed up at the door. Trina finally confronted them and said move out. I work from home (as a software developer). It had to be uncomfortable for them also. Towanda has never really said thank you for staying at my house. … I let you in my house and this is how you treat me?

What do you love about Trina?
I think she’s smart, I love that she’s outgoing, I think she’s beautiful, a good mother, a good wife, she’s real well grounded as far as what she wants. Her moral beliefs.

Who’s your favorite member of the Braxtons gang?
All of ‘em push my buttons from time to time — every one something happened where we haven’t gotten along. My favorite sister is probably Traci, brother-in-law I would say Keri.

Are you hoping that Toni and Keri get back together?
I do hope they get back together. Keri is a good father. The girls, they want the whole cake — they want somebody to be there, be a good parent, a good father, they also want him to have a full-time job and be the breadwinner. Same thing with Andre –[Towanda] can talk all bad — he takes a lot of the load off her with the parenting. Same thing with me and Trina. She wouldn’t have been able to do a lot of the stuff she was able to do if I wasn’t there.
