American Idol's Tamyra Gray Marries the Color Me Badd Dude - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

American Idol’s Tamyra Gray Marries the Color Me Badd Dude

American Idol's Tamyra Gray Marries the Color Me Badd DudeI don’t know why I think this is so bizarre, but American Idol Season One finalist, Tamyra Gray just married Sam Watters, one of the guys from the early 90’s group Color Me Badd.

If you are a certain age (like me) then I’m sure you know all about this former boy band. And don’t even tell me you didn’t sing a long with “I Adore Mi Amore” or the oh so controversial “I Wanna Sex You Up”…if you deny it, you are lying to me and yourself. Of course whenever I hear the name Color Me Badd (yes with two D’s), I immediately conjur up memories of Donna Martin stalking them in their hotel until…she discovers her mother having an illicity affair in the same hotel. Scandal.

People Magazine has all the details about the wedding. I don’t really care all that much about the marriage itself, but I got a big kick out of this pairing.

    Wow…I actually worked with her on a Crest Whitestrips campaign years ago, right after she was booted off American Idol. She was very sweet…but you are right, what a bizarre pairing!

    Yeah, its bizarre. But to me ANY of those guys getting married at all is bizarre.

    Didn’t see this one coming either but weirder things have happened. Don’t really know anything about him, but she is a very nice young lady. Hopefully it will work out for them (wonder if she got a prenup? Horrible thought but in this day and time you never know.), race aside (we can’t always help who we fall in love with, and we’re ‘all’ mixed with something anyway.), in the end. I wish them the best.

    I don’t thing he needs her money. People should get a life and let every one else live their own.

    I say congrats to both. It’s not weird or bazaar, two people fell in love and got married and that’s all there is to it.

    Sam Watters has produced since his CMB days and he used to go out with a black woman even then, I was sure he married her (maybe they broke up) she was initally a fan of his and sent him socks when he went on tour. THis marriage is only a suprise to me because I thought he was already happily married. Hes a good guy who works hard…stop hatin!

    luno07 thanks for the info. i just hope everybody else stop hating tamyra, sam or the couple. if i were tamyra and sam’s got all those credits, WHY WOULDN’T I MARRY HIM?!?! and being together for two years before getting married? why shouldn’t that be?

    Sam Watters is a cutie and very business saavy. He’s produced a number of music hits. I wish I was as lucky as Tamrya.

    Whoever called him a “Broke ass” is obviously smoking dope and just hating out of jealousy. Sam Watters is a Top 40 producer! LOL! WAY More money than the other chodes in CMB. It is EXACTLY the reason he didn’t join CMB reunion because he actually went on to be something MUCH better than a washed up 90’s boy band. hahaha. Losers hate because they are losers.
