Tati remains quite secretive about her parents and her early life, although she is known to be in good relations with both her father and mother – her mother once visited her during the “Live in the D” show to wish her a happy birthday, as she flew the night before from Los Angeles without saying anything to Tati. Her parents are said to have immigrated to the US from Ethiopia when Tati was a still a child, and have lived in Los Angeles and New York City.

LIVE in the D

“Live in the D” is a weekday lifestyle show which airs and streams live at 10 a.m. on Local 4 WDIV channel in Detroit – it is hosted by Jason Carr and Tati Amare, and shows all the positive things happening around the city. Jason and Tati are mostly talking about entertainment, cool events that are happening, good restaurants to visit, good music to listen to, and several other topics. The goal is to show that Detroit is a beautiful place, with a lot of things to offer to both people who are living there and those who are only coming to visit.

Jason is known to be the person who is full of surprises, and is a big lover of bacon, while Tati is the artist in the group as she loves to check out the art scene. Their food person is Michelle Oliver who enjoys seeking out great restaurants, while D. Kila Peeples is the one to discover new things which you can do in Detroit. The producers Tammy and Jay (Jammy) are in charge of making everything look perfect, while Rachel is their Associate Producer who makes the show look awesome on social media platforms. Lorri, Lisa, Sheree, Randy, Kevin, and many others are also a part of the “LIVE in the D” family.

Personal life

Tati is one of the most secretive people when it comes to her personal life – she hasn’t shared anything about any man who she was or is romantically involved with, and therefore nothing is known about her past affairs. She is rumored to be single, but only because she doesn’t talk about boyfriends – it doesn’t necessarily mean that Tati is not seeing anyone. She admitted during the show when her mom came to visit, that she likes masculine men, those who are “real men” but who are not too handsome, as she wants to be the prettier one in a relationship. However, when she has a crush on someone, she prefers to have a crush from a distance and not get involved in anything more than that.

Tati is one of those people who believe in others, even when they don’t believe in themselves – she will be looking from the side and hoping that you are going to make it out there.

Things she enjoys the most

One of the things Tati enjoys the most is a coffee in the morning – it is written on her website that she loves coffee so much that she thinks about it before she goes to sleep. She loves working with Chuck Gaicida, enjoys talking to people, and still can’t believe that she does that for a living. She loves to read, while her favorite book is “Their Eyes Were Watching God”. Her favorite movie is “In Her Shoes”, and her favorite song is “As” by Stevie Wonder. She is just the right friend to people who love surprises – if you are having a birthday or any other special occasion, she is going to surprise you, and you won’t see it coming. Although some people might call her cheap, she considers herself to be a frugalista – a person who dresses well for a small amount of money. Last but not least, Tati loves to entertain people, and often hosts dinner parties at her place.

One thing she feels bad about is the fact that she never learned how to breakdance, as she always wanted to do it as the “Rock Steady Crew” do.

Things she doesn’t like at all

Have you ever heard of germophobia? It is a fear of germs which makes a person wash their hands all the time, and Tati is not ashamed to admit to be one of these people (who are really rare). She doesn’t like people who are not thoughtful and who do not care about others, but are rather selfish.

Even though she has social media accounts, she is grateful to not have had to grow up in the way kids grow up nowadays – looking at their screens and not spending quality time with each other.

Appearance and net worth

Tati is currently 43 years old. She has long brown curly hair and brown eyes, but her height and weight are not known.

According to authoritative sources, Tati’s current net worth is estimated to be over $850,000, and is very likely to rise as Tati is still progressing in her career.

Social media presence

Even though Tati is a not a big fan of social media platforms, her job demands that she keeps up with the news on the Internet – she launched her Twitter account in October 2009, and has so far gathered over 2,200 followers and tweeted more than 2,000 times. She is a lot more popular on her Instagram account which is followed by nearly 35,000 people, while she posted around 400 pictures – she has a Facebook account as well, which she uses to keep in touch with her family and friends.

Tati also runs her own website on which you can read a bit about her, check out her gallery, and contact her with any question, or would like to compliment her on her work (which would be very nice of you).
