Tamar Braxton has said in the past that when she was a young girl, she was bullied in school, and it wasn’t easy for her.
“I walked different, I had a different attitude, and I was picked on because I wasn’t like everybody else.”
Unfortunately, she has also said that even after working hard to become a Grammy-nominated singer, she still deals with bullying, but this time on social media: “I was bullied as a kid, and so for me to get on social media and still have that is a problem for me.”
And it’s a problem that the youngest Braxton sister isn’t trying to keep quiet about. Just this week, the Instagram page for her show “The Real” posted an image of the singer with a mistletoe over her head, and followers were playfully encouraged to meet her underneath it. Two people in particular weren’t feeling the idea (or the holiday spirit), and decided to be less than jolly:
“No thanks she is not Pretty. Sowwy Lol”
“OMG NO! !!!How old is she . She look like she 45 years old. NO !!!!”
Somehow, Braxton saw their statements and decided to give both individuals a piece of her mind, and her resume, to let them know that at the end of the day, whether they think she’s cute or not doesn’t matter:
“@hollywoodbeelife @tyheerahj what chall mad for?? Oh…..I know why
@tyheerahj @hollywoodeelife Ok fine you THINK I’m ugly (feel better??)) I don’t care at all!!! Trust Me! I think I am amazing!! I’ve Sold out my OWN tour? (At 36) had a miracle baby (at 36) and now at (37 years old)…Put out MY OWN clothing line, Have an AMAZING family, 2 #1 reality shows that I created, started my OWN liquor line, writing a book, and u want to tell people NOT to watch this show because YOU both THINK I’m ugly??? Well I think the two of you are UGLY people as well so NOW we are even!! Cool??!!…HOWEVER.. the Question STILL remains….why are you SO mad??”
So in conclusion, don’t come for Tamar unless she sends for you.
What do you think about her response to her detractors?
So apparently, there was a nasty rumor floating around that Gloria Govan has been carrying on an affair with the very married Vincent Herbert. The rumors were fueled by a source claiming to have knowledge of the affair.
“Gloria REALLY wants to get back on reality TV since she’s no longer doing ‘Basketball Wives’ and Vince was supposed to be helping her with that,” a source told Bossip. “She’d been wanting to work with him for a while and things just escalated from there.”
“It’s true,” another source claiming to be a friend of Gloria added. “She’s mentioned before how much she thought he’d be able to help her. Money and placement are always a motivation for her.”
Yesterday, Gloria took to Instagram to dispel the rumors.
“Must be a slow media day… Smfh @balleralert @bossipoffical stop with the outrageous LIES!!! Y’all want tea go do your homework instead of making random sh-t up. I’ve never met @tamarbraxtonher or her husband day in my life! And I wish them nothing but the best in their marriage and beautiful family!!! Stop believing everything u read!!! #dry #stupidassmedia #dumbstories #lies #stoplying.”
Neither Vince or his wife, Tamar, have acknowledged the rumors.

Blogger Sandra Rose is known for starting mess with her unsubstantiated, salacious and speculative headlines. Y’all remember how she came for Faith Evans’ son, claiming that he was gay during his high school graduation. Basically, she takes pride in being messy.
Everyday she’s coming for someone else. And yesterday, in addition to saying no one cared about Solange’s wedding (laughable), Rose also claimed that Tamar’s husband, Vincent Herbert, beats her.
Here’s what she tweeted.
Tamar doesn’t take lightly to much criticism; but she really wasn’t down for this sort, considering that she’s been pretty open about dealing with an abusive relationship in the past.
Here’s what she said in response.
Rose, being the troll that she is, was probably delighted to see that Tamar not only read something she wrote but took the time to respond. Naturally, she wanted to keep the conversation going.
And Tamar responded again.
Rose continued to respond. But fortunately, sometime during the night Tamar realized that Sandra Rose is nothing but a troll and deleted the tweets she screen shotted from her Instagram page.
But we’re wondering whether or not she’ll actually go through with this lawsuit business. It might be an exercise in futility but it would certainly teach Sandra Rose a lesson.
What do you think, should Tamar sue her?
When the ladies of “The Real” sat down to speak about the topic of friends dating shiesty dudes, referencing Chris and Karrueche’s on-again, off-again relationship, I doubt they thought it would cause so much of a stink.
But Chris Brown got word that the ladies were talking about him and his girl and he acted a fool.
He singled out Tamar and Adrienne, calling them all types of names and attempting to bring up Adrienne’s sexual history. Which was interesting considering Jeannie Mai was really the one coming for him. (And that’s not a diss toward Jeannie. Anyone with internet access has seen how Chris gets down. It’s out there.)
The issue is still Chris’ apparent disrespect of women.
Either way, Tamar already responded.
And now Adrienne’s chiming in with her two cents, just a little bit more quietly.
According to The Shade Room, Adrienne Bailon headed straight over to Chris Brown’s Instagram page with her response.
“Who said anything bad about her? I actually know her…We’re cool. The conversation was generally speaking of anyone who may “possibly” be in a bad relationship. Please don’t start drama that doesn’t EXIST. If she’s happy…So am I. And I certainly STARTED my career in a multi platinum singing group. Get your facts straight. You don’t need to freeload when you have your own Barbie. God bless. <3″
What do you think about Adrienne’s response? Personally, I admire the fact that she went right to Chris Brown’s page, instead of creating several Instagram posts.
Take a look at it in the image below.
Towards the end of last month, Tamar Braxton and Kenya Moore were engaged in a rather one-sided shade-throwing battle which started when Andy Cohen asked Tamar what she thought about Kenya on his show “Watch What Happens Live.”
Tamar was relatively nice, by Tamar’s standards. She said:
“I can’t lie, she’s not my favorite…I don’t know, something about the thirst of it all, you know? She’s a pretty girl, but I don’t know, the pageant thing kind of reeks.”
Which is a little harsh…but that’s Tamar. Either way, Kenya heard of Tamar’s comments and went off, saying at least she has edges.
Kenya was particularly disappointed because before Tamar sat down with Andy Cohen, Kenya appeared on Tamar’s talk show “The Real” to promote her new weave line. And Kenya felt that they had a nice, pleasant exchange. So she was surprised that Tamar would speak about her that way and doubly so because she did it on Bravo, her family and her home, as Kenya calls it.
Tamar took things a bit too far as she is known to do. But Kenya beefing with everyone is so tired at this point.
Either way, if your’e wondering how her appearance on “The Real” went, check out excerpts from Kenya’s appearance on the show and then the videos below.
Tamar: On the show [The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, you get a lot of mean girl rap. How do you handle like being the villain and the cause of everybody’s problems.
Kenya: Well I don’t think I’m the cause of everybody’s problems.
Tamar: Well, they say that, that’s what I mean.
Kenya: They try to make it seem like I am. I think that every show has to have a villain. And I think that my first two seasons, it came my way. I think I’m just a strong person with a strong point of view and opinions. I don’t start fights but I don’t back away from them either. And I think that I just become a target. ‘Well, let’s just team up on Kenya, let’s take her down.’ So it takes an army of women to try to take me down but it hasn’t been done so…
Then the ladies of “The Real” and Kenya played a game of Tug-o-weave.
So judging by their conversation, do you think Tamar was being fake or was she just keeping it professional, despite her less than fond feelings for Kenya?
Watch the clips below to see how it went down.
And then their game of Tug-o-Weave

“All In All The Whole Sh*t Was Childish”: Chris Brown Explains Yesterday’s Rant, And Karrueche Tran Finally Defends Herself
In case you missed it last night, Chris Brown lashed out at “The Real” hosts Adrienne Bailon and Tamar Braxton over statements made about girlfriend Karrueche Tran during a recent episode. He called folks everything from a “trout mouth b***h” to a “muppet.”
Tamar Braxton responded, and in case you forgot the healthy dose of shade she threw both Brown and Tran’s way to defend herself, it went something like this:
#whenyourgirlhasatalkshowinsteadofcryingaboutyouwhileONone… you are asked to talk about certain things such as A.relationships B.family C.fashion D. Things that has to do with HER in life!@chrisbrownofficial @karrueche no one came at either of you but was simply using your relationship as an example of things us ladies go through in a relationship!! I do not know nor do I give a hot damn about your relationship personally…. honestly and respectfully I’m VERY sorry if you BOTH were offended about our girl chat…. however you WILL NOT think its ok to come at GROWN women and talk to either myself or @adrienne_bailon as if u have EVER has us each in your bed at ANY point in our lives! (Maybe your mind is clouded) NOTE TO SELF: u are NOT my MAN or my DADDY so you got me completely FUCKED up!…(like your reputation) I’m not 20 nothing years old and I am fine with all 3 #1 tv shows and making my dreams come true with Love&War and now #letmeknow…which is on iTunes you are only a few years older than my son and I will not tolerate your disrespect when no one was coming for you!!! so this RICH/BLESSED muppet who WAS always VERY nice to you and your girl will continue to work my ass of and make amazing records and positive television while YOU…In this very queenish mood you are experiencing…….Instead of coming on ig…and acting like a B.A.N!!…should have and could have picked up the phone!! …or watched the show for yourself!!! At least that’s what REAL men do! #thereal on fox and@bet #backtoworkigo #liveinyourtruth #wewouldbetheBESTJudiesEVER #letmeknowifkarruchiehasamouthsheshoulduseitnotYOU #dontfuckwithmefellasthisisnotherfirsttimeattherodeo #grown #stillyalltho #wenotbeefing
The hashtag, “let me know if karruchie has a mouth she should use it not YOU” must have struck a cord, because Tran decided to respond, but with a lot less vitriol than everyone else:
Braxton responded to Tran’s message by posting the original video of her statements (you can see it below), which actually defended Brown (Jeannie Mai was actually the one who called Brown “a bad guy”) and captioned it, “noneedtosayimsorryialreadyknowyouare” and “#teamNObeef”
Brown also reposted Tran’s message, saying “she’s a lot nicer than me,” and actually deleted his tirade against both women. But he did speak on his decision to speak disrespectfully to them earlier today:
“Yesterday’s roast was amusing to some and disrespectful to others. All in all the whole shit was childish. I could’ve have been politically correct and went about the situation more civilised but I’m not fake nor do I need to ever comment on anyone’s life. I felt the need to say what I felt. It seems everyone can always have an opinion on “CHRIS BROWN” and chime in whenever they want. The show was depicting relationships. They gave their views on my relationship by bashing my significant other for being with me publicly on national television. There are too many Pots calling the kettle black. I know that with me being a public figure and one of the best at what I do it’s more of a story to talk about. It comes with the territory. Like I said before, I say what I feel and what I want especially if anyone has an opinion about me and mine. Somedays I’ll be cool and then other days ima roast ya a**. So this isn’t an apology for yesterday. Just a reflection. People, live ya life, you’ll mess around and go blind looking at me all the time. #teambreezyaintwitthebulls**t”
The only person in the middle of this drama who doesn’t seem to have a comment about any of it is Bailon. Instead of throwing stones, she used the publicity to promote the episode that got her in trouble with Brown. Either she’s not bothered by any of this, or like the time she had drama with the Kardashians, she could be waiting for the right moment to clapback. Either way, everyone involved is a lot better than this…
Again, in case you missed it, the chat that started this whole mess is below:
“It’s Always The People With No Career That Talk All The Shit.” Chris Brown Goes In On The Women Of The Real, Tamar Responds
Damn! Just when you thought Chris Brown was going to tone it down a bit, he comes talking some trash. Today, the ladies of “The Real” were discussing how blind women can be in relationships, taking men back over and over again, when they know they’re no good.
I don’t have to tell you that Karrueche Tran is the poster child of that type of woman. She’s taken Chris back more times than we can count or remember. And the women discussed it today, first referencing their own relationships, the relationships they’ve observed with their friends and Chris and Karrueche.
Here’s what they had to say.
Tamera: “In college I was dating this guy that nobody approved of. And there’s just something about you have to experience it for yourself. I appreciate it that my friends intervened but I had to learn on my own.
Tamar: What if they keep cheating on you in public though, you that blind?
Jeannie: I feel like for my personal friends it’s a worse situation because I can see that the guy’s not good for them but they don’t see it because love is blind. She’s not blind because it’s in front of all the tabloids and everybody sees that Chris Brown is a bad guy.
Tamar: I don’t think he’s a bad guy, I think he’s young.
Adrienne: Y’all don’t think that maybe some of her friends reap the benefits of her dating Chris Brown. They want to be a part of that circle.
It didn’t seem like that big of a deal to us but apparently Chris took offense. And he came for Adrienne Bailon in the worst possible way.
Then he posted this video of himself.
Chris, come on bruh. This is just not what’s hot. I’m not a fan of anyone cussing anyone out on social media, especially for something this trivial. But there is something that seems especially callous when it’s a man directing this vitriol toward a woman, especially knowing Chris’ history. For better or worse, this will always be his cross to bear. Jeannie Mai and the rest of the ladies only said what we’ve all observed, thanks to the very public way you’ve aired out your own dirty laundry. I‘ll never forget the documentary Chris released about loving two women. How could you put something out there like that and not expect people to comment on it? You literally put it out here for us to consume and everybody’s supposed to be mum about it. Stop it! Judging by this strong reaction to this very minor conversation, Chris and Adrienne probably have some type of negative history together. The industry is small. He clearly doesn’t care for her. But we’ll never know that side of the story. All we see is Adrienne saying Karrueche’s friends might be along for the ride and Chris popping all the way off. This was sooo unwarranted. Tamar responded just minutes ago…see what she had to say on the next page.
We all have some form of baggage that we’ve carried with us that can have negative impacts on our self-esteem if they are not properly addressed. During a recent episode of “The Real,” the show’s hosts got pretty emotional while discussing issues that they’ve struggled with.
Jeannie Mai revealed that when her aunt learned that she wanted to become a television host, her aunt suggested that she have surgery done on her eyes.
“I was about 16 when I told my family that I wanted to be a television host,” Jeannie revealed. “My aunt—I can’t believe she said this to me—she said, “You probably should go and get your eyes fixed pretty soon because you can heal and by the time you’re 18. You’ll get more jobs”
Jeannie went on to say that initially, she wasn’t sure what her aunt was talking about. She eventually realized that her aunt was trying to say that there aren’t many Asian people on television and that she’d probably be more successful if she masked her Asian decent. Sadly, this caused her to become insecure about other things as well.
Tamara shared after Jeannie and got really emotional. The former child star said that because she is a twin, the unavoidable comparisons eventually weighed on her self-esteem.
“Um, being a twin, people compare and they compare a lot…by default. It’s not their fault, but sometimes they see two people and they either say, ‘Oh, she’s the sexy one,’ or ‘She’s the cute one.’ Well, I was known as the goofy cute one. I used to read our fan mail all the time and that’s what I used to get all the time when I was 16 years old. Well I kept it and going to college, I carried that. I always thought it was a negative term because all I wanted to be was sexy
Tamar also opened up about being diagnosed with vitiligo and how people have accused her of bleaching her skin in the past. It’s refreshing to see these beauties speak candidly about these common issues.
Check out a clip from the episode below.
“We Spoiled Her – She’s Going To Be Spoiled”: Traci Braxton On Baby Sister Tamar Accusing Her Of Using Auto-Tune
As we’ve said before, things have been a little catty between the Braxton sisters as of late, with Tamar being accused of not giving credit where credit is due to big sister Toni when it comes to the success the sisters have. Traci posted an image earlier this month of Toni holding a Grammy and captioned it, “This little lady right here, my big sis @tonibraxton is the reason I am here today! She paved the way for all of us to be successful!”
When one of Traci’s fans commented that she would win a Grammy someday because of how good her new music is, Tamar was caught throwing shade at her sister:
Obviously, this wasn’t a good look. Tamar deleted the tweet and later went on a Twitter rant about her fans, her haters, her sisters and her hard work getting her the success she has now.
Traci didn’t comment on Tamar’s statements afterwards, but in a recent chat with Juicy Magazine, she let it be known that no matter what they go through or say about each other, Tamar is still her sister and she loves her dearly.
“You know what, fans like to be on sides, and try to ’cause some division with the sisters or speculate anything. That’s my baby sister. Tamar and I, we know we love each other – we know we say things to each other and everything like that. But you know, she’s the baby sister. We spoiled her – she’s going to be spoiled. It’s like Venus and Serena, you know, when they have a match together, but they still love each other.”
She was also asked whether or not she felt “Braxton Family Values” should continue on, seeing as there seems to be a lot of tension between the ladies these days. Tamar recently said that she wasn’t sure if she would return, but Traci is hoping the show will continue on until it can’t anymore:
“I think we should let the show keep going on and on until it dies down. But you know everybody can identify with us when we’re taping, or showing people our lives and letting them know, you know, this is us. And people say, ‘You know what, that’s my family.'”
