We like each other: David and Tamela Mann discuss what keeps their marriage strong & Season 2 of ‘It's A Mann’s World’ 

GETTYArticle By Meredith Johnson // EEW Magazine Reporter

After nearly 28 years of marriage, reality TV stars David and Tamela Mann are still going strong. So, what’s their secret?

“We like each other,” said the lovebirds in a recent interview with Fox LA while promoting Season 2 of “It's A Mann’s World,” set to premiere Tuesday, Feb. 23, on BET.

Co-host Maria Sansone pointed out that reality TV shows have a reputation for being “the kiss of death” for relationships, but according to the Manns, they have no worries.

“We’ve heard that, but going into this thing, we’ve already talked about it,” said Tamela, who made it clear from the beginning that she and David, both 49, weren’t about the drama.

“If it comes to that, forget about it,” she continued.

If their rock-solid union ever began showing signs of wear and tear beneath the glaring lights and intense gaze of cameras, “we’re out,” said David.

In a 2014 interview with Sister 2 Sister Magazine, the “Take Me To The King” singer, who is currently promoting her new single, “One Way,” said they drew a line in the sand when first approached with the idea of doing a reality show.

“We don’t fuss and argue with each other and go crazy.’ So we said, ‘If you can let us resolve issues in the family and show positive love, then we’ll do one.”

So far, so good.

Season 1 of “It's A Mann’s World” was filled with lots of laughs and plenty of love to go around. So, what can you expect from Season 2?

‘Expect the unexpected," David said. "Expect a lot of funny, a lot of craziness, just family fun.”

The couple, who play father and daughter, Mr. Brown and Cora, in Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns” stage play, want to show what a healthy portrayal of family looks like. 

“We’re in this together and the reason why we’re doing this is to share with other families how you can deal with issues without just choking each other out,” said the wife and mom of the blended family.

David and Tamela have two children together, two from his previous relationship, and one of his nieces the couple raised at their own.
