You won’t believe how cute these Bravo celebs were as kids
What’s cuter than a sibling throwback pic? Based on Southern Charm New Orleans‘ star Tamica Lee’s #TBT shot with brother Sonny Lee, we’d say nothing. They have the cutest smiles right? And we love the holiday vibe going on here.
Sadly, however, Tamica and Sonny’s lives weren’t so happy as this picture might portray. That’s because the Lees’ father — a famous football player for the New Orleans Saints — died at age 36 when Tamica was a young kid. “My father’s sudden death devastated our family,” she wrote on her personal website. “My mother was suddenly a single mother with two young children.”
As devastating as the death was, however, the siblings were able to find hope in their charity organization, Son of a Saint, and extracurricular activities. “Our involvement with the Saints organization was a way for my mother to keep my father’s presence alive,” Tamica explained. “Cheering and dancing provided me with an after-school activity that kept me healthy, focused and taught me the importance of teamwork.”
It doesn’t need to be said, but we’re so happy to hear Tamica and Sonny Lee overcame this tough time in life. Keep up the amazing work, guys.
