Tamar Braxton Drops Videos For “She Can Have You” And “All The Way Home” With Vince As Her Love Interest
Last time Tamar Braxton released a music video, it was “Hot Sugar,” and the reaction was mixed from most folks, and even panned by Braxton herself, who went in on the photographers of the video on a very public forum–Rihanna’s Instagram page. You see, the duo, Gomillion & Leupold, photograph for Rihanna from time to time:
“I think you guys are Very talented. ..but the way ya’ll did ME for that #hotsugar video was pure F**KERY! Not only did u NOT shoot the treatment there were NO clear shots of 1 take.”
Of course, that rant went on and on, but you get it–Tamar wasn’t feeling it at all. But she’s stepped her game up and decided to release two new videos at the same time, which includes the visuals for “All The Way Home” from her Love and War album, and “She Can Have You” from her new Christmas album, Winter Loversland. In “All The Way Home,” the baby Braxton sister uses husband Vince Hubert as her love interest for the clip, and they battle it out because she feels neglected by him. In the end, the tables turn and he doesn’t appreciate the neglect so much either. They finally work things out and he puts a ring on it to say he’s sorry. The couple are pretty cute in the visuals, and Tamar looks great as well showing a little skin, even though there are moments when she’s doing a bit much (what’s with all that pelvic thrusting on the balcony!?).
The second video is a prime example of cuffing season gone wrong. Braxton and her on-screen love interest (not Vince this time) in “She Can Have You” break up and she’s all alone for the holidays. When she tries to step out with a friend (Rick Ross’s ex, Shateria Moragne-el), she sees her deadbeat boo in the arms of another woman. All hell breaks loose and innocent Christmas trees are sacrificed as Braxton lets all her emotions out. Very entertaining I must say.
Both videos are cute, and relatively short, so check them out for yourself and let us know if you’re feeling the them, as well as the songs. Say what you want about Tamar Braxton, but the girl can sing!
Last night, BET and Centric both aired the Soul Train Awards (which were taped at the beginning of November) and during the show, there were some major wins for both Tamar Braxton and K. Michelle. While K took home the Best New Artist award, Tamar picked up the “Song of the Year” award for “Love and War,” the Best R&B/Soul Female Artist award, and lastly, the Ashford and Simpson Songwriter’s Award. It was a great night for both women, and K took to her Twitter last night to respond to all the congrats and good wishes from her fans. But she also took a moment to extend an olive branch (her final one) to Tamar after everything they’ve been through.
I’m sure you’re fully aware of the back and forth these ladies have had ever since it was alleged that Tamar spoke out against K last year after the LHHATL said that Memphitz used to abuse her (Memphitz is of course the husband of Toya Wright, a friend of Tamar’s). Since then, folks have been called Muppets, irrelevant and more. But maybe the excitement over the Soul Train Awards caused K to have a change of heart, because this is what she had to say on Twitter late last night:
I’ll try this 1mo time. Congrats @tamarbraxtonher We both been through hell fighting 4a dream. Let’s cut the shit and inspire.
— K.Michelle (@kmichelle) December 2, 2013
Tamar hasn’t responded as of yet, and really, I doubt that she will. OH WELL. Kudos to K for trying to let bygones be bygones, but it’s best if both ladies just hush up when it comes to each other and sing. Congratulations to the both of them on picking up some major trophies at the Soul Train Awards. They better do it!
If you missed both women win their awards, you can check out video of their acceptance speeches below, and see more video of their performances over at BET.com:
“I’m 36 Years Old And Proud Of It”: Tamar Braxton Tells Fans, You’re Never Too Old To Pursue Your Dreams
The Soul Train Awards air this Sunday, and since they were taped at the beginning of the month, most of the winners have already been announced. One of those winners is Tamar Braxton, the baby sis of the Braxton crew who had her Love and War album debut at the second spot with huge numbers. Braxton, who also performed a medley at the show, picked up three awards (Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Song of the Year for “Love & War” and the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award) and while receiving one of them, she opened up about pursuing her dreams and almost giving up as she got older. Here’s what she had to say according to The Jasmine Brand:
“I never thought in my life, that I would be here. And the only reason is that because I almost gave up on myself and I just wanna let you guys know, no matter want you wanna be, no matter who you wanna be, don’t give up on you. It’s possible. I’m 36-years-old and I’m proud of it…and I don’t give a damn if I was 56, she was NOT finna stop. Point blank and the period.”
A big LOL for Tamar always referring to herself in third person and the whole “point blank and the period” statement. It is nice to see Tamar having so much success in her career right now, because we know that she, along with her sisters (minus Toni of course), have been looking for their big break as solo acts for a while now. And to be able to do so well at almost 40 shows that true talent does trump all that extra hoopla. Once again, check out Tamar’s acceptance speech and all the great performances and more on Sunday when the Soul Train Awards comes on at 8 p.m. ET on Centric and BET.
“They Give Unsolicited Advice:” Traci Braxton Says She Was Hurt By Her Sisters Meddling In Her Marriage Troubles
Our favorite outspoken sister from the Braxton Clan, Traci Braxton is real, lovable and most of all hilarious. We recently had the chance to share a few laughs with her as she gears up for the third season of “Braxton Family Values” and in the end she made us feel like family. During the interview, Traci revealed how she feels about Tamar’s behavior on social media, the lack of privacy her family gives each sister’s romantic relationship, and her weight loss journey. Traci also shared how to she plans to reinvent her career since she was dubbed the “wannabe” sister on the first season of their family reality show.
What should fans expect from this new season of “BFV”?
“Fans should expect to see me standing up for myself this season and you usually do not see that a lot. I am usually the quiet one and I never say anything but this time around I am sticking up and making moves for Traci.”
How do you feel about your sisters discussing your marriage on national television?
“I was really hurt to find out they discussed my marital problems on the show without my consent. I could not believe it but then again my sisters are nosy. Tamar especially; she will make comments regardless. Whether it be her marriage, my marriage, or anyone else’s, she will have something to say. She is very vocal and will continue to do what she wants to do. I think the relationship my sisters and I share is too close, at times. They give unsolicited advice and it can be so bothersome. But that is how we grew up in our household, always in each other’s business.”
Do you ever feel the need to defend Tamar when she goes on social media rants?
“Tamar does not need anyone to defend her! We are talking about Tamar Braxton-Herbert; Tamar is a grown woman and it is her mouth piece. Tamar can hold her own.”
What’s going on with your weight loss journey?
“I have several trainers and the hilarious trainer you see on the show is just one of them. Unfortunately, I recently gained some weight. I was not being conscious of what I was eating while traveling. I was taking cortisone shots and I gained 12 pounds. No one told me you gained weight when you take those shots! I was so upset. I came to tell y’all never take a cortisone shot, it will make you so hungry! Every time I turned around I had something in my mouth!”
How has being on reality TV changed you?
“I had to change my image from the first season of the ‘Braxton Family Values’ because I was labeled the wannabe and I ain’t like that at all! I wanted my image to be positive so I turned what it was around and now I am in the works to have my own radio show. It will be called ‘The Traci Braxton Show’ and on it we will discuss current events, entertainment, fashion, and celebrities. The show will be hosted in the DMV (Delaware-Maryland-Virginia) area, as well. I am also a part of many business ventures, so I cannot wait to see how everything unfolds for me. WE Television has been so supportive of me, I love them. I am excited for everything coming together for me because that ‘wannabe’ thing had to go!
I’m a fan of Tamar Braxton. Though I will agree that she can be obnoxious, I liked her on “Braxton Family Values,” “Tamar and Vince,” “The Real” and her Christmas album is awesome! I generally root for her to win. But win she did not when she showed up at the 2013 Soul Train Awards wearing this here outfit. In a see through, one-sleeved, bedazzled and bejeweled black catsuit with a cape, Tamar didn’t quite look up to par. And that’s putting it nicely.
Perhaps this was Tamar’s night to take a risk; because as someone who prides herself on being stylish, I’m not understanding why she took the stage with jewels in between her legs. And if you click through and look at the other pictures, there’s a bit of a surprise under that cape.
So click through and then caption this picture of Tamar’s bedazzled crotch.
Though Tamar Braxton appears to be basking in the joys of motherhood now that her son Logan has arrived, the new mom is not ashamed to admit that pregnancy was not a pleasant experience for her. She recently shared with FLAUNT Magazine that the experience was so unpleasant that she doesn’t plan on having anymore children. Check out a few of her interview highlight below.
On expanding her family:
“Well, I’m not having any kids in the future.”
On being miserable during her pregnancy:
“God no [I'm not having more kids]. I hated being pregnant. I felt like Invasion of the Body Snatchers. It’s beautiful and it’s great just like everyone says, but there’s another side to it. My back. My feet. My skin went absolutely nuts. I had the itchies the whole day. Imagine scratching all day and you can never get to the itch.”
On the side of pregnancy that isn’t openly discussed:
“Yes. People lie to you. I was one hundred percent open and honest on Tamar and Vince because I was upset. I didn’t instantly connect with my baby, and no one told me this was common. I was jealous because Vince and the baby connected instantly. It’s not that I didn’t love him; it’s not that I didn’t want to connect with him. I was upset because I didn’t instantly connect with him. I didn’t cry when I first saw him. I was confused. I was like, ‘What do I do now?’”
On love vs. passion:
“Passion is a lot like lust, except it’s real. Passion is real because the other person feels the same way about you. It’s not one-sided. When you argue, it’s passionate, because you want to get your point across but you also want the other person to understand you, so you can get back to the love. Nobody told me about that either. I had to learn that for myself.”

It may be hard to believe but Christmas really is just around the corner. So in that spirit, Christmas albums are on their way as well. And Tamar is among those artists. And now, we’ve got the first single, “She Can Have You.”
As you may gather from the title, this is not your traditional “Jingle Bells” type of Christmas song. Instead, this song is about a woman who’ll be spending Christmas alone because her man has been acting a fool, taking his new woman around the mall buying her gifts that should have been hers. It puts me in the mind of The Emotions’ “What Do The Lonely Do At Christmas” except with more empowerment and more attitude…much more. It is Tamar after all.
As a fan of Tamar’s voice, I really like this one. It shows her range and tells a story. And I’m a sucker for a song you can envision. It’s good, really good. Check out the audio below.
And for those of you who would prefer more traditional Christmas songs, the album will include those too. Here’s the track list.
1. Sleigh Ride
2. Santa Baby
3. Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
4. No Gift
5. Away in a Manger/Little Drummer Boy
6. Merry Christmas Darling
7. The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)
8. She Can Have You
9. Silent Night
10. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Back in September, she posted this video of her singing what sounds like, “Have Yourself A Merry Christmas.” And she diiiid dat. Take a listen below, it’s incredible.
Tamar’s Winter Loverland will hit shelves Monday, November 11. Will you check it out?
After nearly three months of uncertainty, Fox has officially announced their plans to pick up Warner Bros. daytime talk show, The Real. One of the show’s hosts, Tamar Braxton, quickly took to Twitter to announce the good news.
According to Deadline, the pick-up comes with a two-year deal that will include nationwide syndication with Fox TV stations. A second showing of the daytime talk program will also air on BET in the evenings, following a format similar to that of The Wendy Show.
“This summer, the daytime landscape in seven Fox markets was dramatically altered when the women of The Real exploded on to the air. ‘The Real’ brought viewers a unique combination of elements that were missing from daytime, a real, multi-cultural conversation about issues that women of all ages are talking about. Daytime viewers from across the nation tuned in everyday to share in the fun, authentic, energetic and wonderfully outrageous hour that is The Real experience. We are very excited to be bring this distinctive unique series to stations for the Fall of 14,” said Ken Werner, president, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution in an issued statement.
This great news, especially after the ladies made such an emotional exit over the summer.
Are you excited about The Real returning?
Tamar has been involved in her share of disputes over the years. We’ve even watched her fight it out with her sisters and husband, Vincent Herbert. So news that Tamar is supposedly beefing with her co-stars from The Real wasn’t totally shocking. But during a recent interview with the Russ Parr Morning Show, the new mommy slammed the rumors, insisting that he co-stars are like her sisters.
“That’s hilarious, because you know, me and the girls got along really, really well. As a matter of fact, I found three fabulous, fabulous good friends out of it and I feel like they are apart of my life and they will be apart of my life forever—whether the show gets picked up or not. All that other nonsense, you just gotta take it in stride and pray for people and keep it moving,”
She adds that she is very professional when it comes to her work, so she’s unsure why these rumors continue to surface about her.
“I’m very professional. I’m on time. I’m really into my work. I’m really passionate about my work. All of these nonsense stories that surround me, is really not my life, really. I’m misunderstood a lot.”
The “All The Way Home” singer also addressed the controversy surrounding her “Hot Sugar” music video.
“I shot a video and that’s it. I haven’t seen or heard from him since then. [They didn't finish it] at all. I am ecstatic about the video, people have their won opinions about it but you know what I stand behind my work and if I didn’t believe in it I would have never put it out. If you don’t like it then don’t watch because some people do because cause it got over two million views in less than a week. That’s not losing.”
And if you were wondering whether or not her new baby boy, Logan, has been causing her to lose sleep, Tamar says not at all!
“I have a really good baby. At first he had a lot of issues, his acid reflux and we were really trying to figure out his milk situation. He was not happy. But now he sleeps all night long and he’s nothing like his mother. He’s not dramatic. He’s real laid back like Vince, real cool.”
K. Michelle sat down for a very interesting interview with Kevin and Makael of the Skorpion Show to talk about her music success, her struggles in the love department (who doesn’t have them?) and the real behind her issues with Tamar Braxton. We’ve got the low-down for you:
How It Felt To Have Her Album Go Number 1 On The R&B Charts:
“It felt great. I waited so long to put an album out. And you know I fought so hard for it. I went from city to city, kissing babies, touching hands, everybody, and it was straight hard real numbers. And it was people out there who bought my album and it was amazing…It made me feel amazing. I call myself the People’s Champ because so many people try to come for me all the time and they try to talk about me. But nothing is better than being successful. That’s the best revenge you can have for anybody. And to outsell, you know, artists, you know I look up to, it’s nothing short of a miracle. I’m just excited about it. Sorry, girls, but it’s my time now [laughs].”
Why She Couldn’t Stick Around With Ex-Boo Lance:
“He’s cool, he’s a sweetheart. It’s good, it’s whatever. When you mentally have other issues going on, I’m talking about me, it’s very hard to get into a new relationship. I just feel like there was a big age gap in that situation and um….I’m just a handful. I know I’m a lot. And to ask a 23-year-old to understand this job too, and being 23, trying to date somebody you never dated, an artist or things like that. Then you’re in the NBA and you want to sling d*ck and be 23 and I’m not having it, I jump gates. It’s just a lot going on. I’m not with all that. So, he needs to go be 23 and sling pen*s cause I can’t….”
What She Wants In A Man:
“I would say tatted up, look like he got out of jail, but got a job. Oh, like just got out, you know, fresh out of jail. Tattoos, all of that, just se*y but a real job. Everybody is on this mission. I’m a science project, everybody’s determined to get the prize. I’m just praying that God delivers him, like UPS, soon!”
And Of Course, Tamar:
“Well, all I want to say about the situation is, people are gonna always look at K like a bully. I always win arguments. Just because I win them doesn’t mean I start them. I win them, okay? The thing with this situation is, I have never come for this lady first, ever. Never have come for her first. But every time she has commented, I have come back. But I’m the bully? I think this recent time people have started to see: ‘K isn’t saying anything to you.’ For you to be half of a 100, there’s no reason that you still should be coming for me. I’m a newbie. You’ve had five records deals. This is your second album. Your first album debuted at 127. There’s no reason that you should be coming for me. I’m sitting back, I’m minding my business. Everybody know…that my mouth is slick. But I’m gonna cut it to you and tell you like it is. I have done nothing to this woman. I even bought her album, I’ve been very supportive. Tamar is very quick to go and throw shade at people then run and hide her hands. Excuses for everything. She can go and pick on Nicki. She had the nerve to say that Beyoncé wasn’t pregnant. You never come for the queen. You don’t come for Beyoncé like that. But she did. She comes for everybody, but then when you attack her or defend yourself, you’re a bully. That’s not how it goes in America. I don’t need Vince. I’m not scared of nobody. I’mma say what the f**k I feel. And if you come for me–you’re one big joke, its easy for me to tell you about yourself. Did I like her album? It was cute. Some songs. I have songs I listen to when I wake up. I like the “Pieces” record, I think that’s a great record. I’m not a hater when it comes to music. But you won’t get on there and throw shade at me because you think you’re high and mighty. Then when I defend myself, I’m the big bad wolf. Until you get your vocal chords in order, don’t come for me. We have NEVER met, that’s whats so crazy! No one will come for me. The only person that will come for me, is Jesus to take me home to glory. No one will come for me and think I’m not gonna say anything. As long as you stop, I stop. I told everybody to support you and buy your album because it’s R&B. Who continued it? Who continued this fight? Shut up and sing!”
Well, there you have it. Watch K’s full interview on the next page and let us know what you think of her comments.
