Tracey Edmonds: I actually took days off from work to take a vacation. Deion and I have primary residences in two different states so we're often traveling a lot back and forth.

Not only do we work together but she's also become one of my closet girlfriends.
Tracey: To be honest with you, I got pushed in front of the camera.
My preference has always been being behind the camera and I always promised that I would remain behind the camera.
