True Blood: Rutina Wesley tells us who Tara's Ideal Man would be

As Sookie Stackhouse’s best friend and confidant, Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley), has seen more than her fair share of misfortune and heartbreak on True Blood.

Whether it’s her alcoholic mother or a maenad-possessed boyfriend with a name better suited for a breakfast menu, every time it looks like that Tara is about to catch a break, the break catches her.
