Have You Been Watching? Ratings For The Premiere Of “The Real” Are In And They’re Not That Great…

In case you weren’t aware, this week marked the premiere of “The Real” on Fox. The show had a four week trial run last summer and though it only premiered in seven Fox markets (including New York, Los Angeles, D.C., Philadelphia, Phoenix, Houston and Tampa), the show did so well that it was given the green light to be broadcast nationally, with reruns playing on BET.

The show premiered on Monday, and according to reports, it’s doing so-so. Let’s see if I can break this TV numbers talk down so that it makes sense.

Courtesy of Broadcasting & Cable, according to Nielsen Media Research, the talk show premiered on Monday with a 0.9 rating/3 share in primary run metered market averages. The show’s numbers were 40% below their lead-in program and had a 10 percent decrease in viewership compared to the show that it replaced (the short-lived “Bethenny” was in the same time-slot last year).

Among women ages 25-54, the show averaged 0.8 and was down 38 percent from its lead-in show, but was up 14 percent from the numbers “Bethenny” was pulling last year. With less than a million viewers in its premiere, the show isn’t necessarily tearing the roof off of daytime TV (“Live with Kelly and Michael is doing that with 2.7 in its premiere), but it’s doing well among younger viewers. And with all the commentary on Twitter that I saw on Monday about it, the program has a strong social media presence.

I’ve watched every episode since the program premiered on Monday, and I still think it has potential.

However, the women should probably start talking about things going on in the news or in popular culture (or get some better guests) instead of just taking Twitter challenges to talk with mouths full of marshmallows and pissing Tamar off with too much talk about her man Vince (“Let’s talk about somebody else’s man”), because sometimes it seems they’re talking over one another about a whole lot of nothing.

Aside from that, I like that they’re trying to bring something fresh to daytime, and I would encourage everyone to give the show a try if you haven’t–at least once.

Tamar Braxton Tackles Domestic Violence Rumors

Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert’s constant bickering is nothing new to reality TV fans, but apparently, there were some rumors floating around that their fights frequently become physical behind the scenes. During a recent interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, the “Hot Sugar” singer tackled the reports head-on.

“Now, they’re also trying to put out these rumors that you and Vince get into these drag-down fights. And I read that on a couple of different sites. Do you want to address that?” Angela Yee asked.

“Where do they come from?” Tamar asked. “I ain’t that chick. We ain’t getting ready to just guff everyday, like. No, I ain’t got time for that. I’m booked.”

Speaking of domestic violence, the hosts questioned Tamar about her thoughts on the Ray Rice controversy and whether or not she would go back to Vince if he hit her.

“I can’t see it and you know what. The reason why I can’t is because I’ve been an abusive relationship before, like a for real, for real abusive relationship. I am not that girl who you’re just going to hit on. So when people ask me those questions or allegedly say things like that it’s just like, ‘Chile sit down and have several seats because, no.'”

As for the divorce rumors that never seem to go away for long, Tamar had this to say:

“They all do [want my man] honey. They act like they don’t, but they do. It’s the truth.”

“I mean, we argue, yes,” she continued. “It’s a lot to argue about. Number one: we work together. Number two: he’s my husband. Number three: he’s my baby daddy. We have a lot to argue about. But you know, at the end of the day that’s my best friend. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him, you know, and that’s it.”

The “Real” host went on to say that she doesn’t get too bent out of shape when people gossip about them, adding that what actually bugs her is when “heifers say stuff that don’t know me.”

The new season of Tamar and Vince is set to premiere in October and WeTV has just given us a first look at what’s to come in season 3. Of course when Tamar is in the mix, you know things will be over the top,  but is all that extra-ness becoming too much for Vince to handle? It seems so from the trailer and this season description:

This season, not only is Grammy-nominated artist Tamar Braxton trying to juggle her music career and motherhood—but she’s also adding a talk show launch to the mix, among other endeavors. Overbooked and overworked, the chaos begins to take its toll in a major way on her relationship with her husband & manager, Vince.

Ruh roh.

Check out the trailer above and tell us what you think. Will you be tuning in to Tamar and Vince Season 3?

“When U Have Your Baby Your Hair Falls Out!” Tamar Braxton Blames Missing Edges On Childbirth

tamar II


On the most recent episode of “Braxton Family Values,” the sisters went to therapy with Dr. Sherry to try and work out their issues with one another, and boy was it stressful! But the one thing it seemed people were focused on talking about more than the episode itself was how Tamar Braxton appeared in the episode. With her hair pulled back, it was apparent that Tamar’s edges were gone, and on Twitter, people were trying to be amateur comedians about it:

“its #tamarbraxton ‘s EDGES “last scene and season” ….oowee #bfv getcha lace front back boo”

“Tamar braxton hair line needs Jesus she ain’t got no edges or nothin stop wearin them damn lace front wigs”

“Somebody please put out a missing persons ad on @tamarbraxtonher edges #pleaseandthanks”

People even thought K. Michelle was trying to throw shade about it, posting this message on her Instagram last night:

“Looking out to heavens thanking God for everything. This fame stuff is cool sometimes, but the TRUE blessing is that I have all of my edges. Oh, and I don’t have to steal my cable anymore. Laugh it’s good for u.”

All these statements prompted a response from Braxton, who took to Instagram a few hours ago to let it be known that her hair loss came from having her son, Logan.




“When u HAVE your baby …(my son) your hair falls out!! Thanks to @simplicityhairoil for my hairline coming back! But if it didn’t work I would BUY me some. Glad you all get to see the changes while #bfv & #T&V on T.V.”

And there is truth to what she’s saying. Postpartum hair shedding is usually caused by a decline in estrogen after pregnancy, but it’s short-term. Tamar used a specific hair oil to help her edges grow back, and it seems that all is back to normal, so give the lady a break…

Have you dealt with postpartum hair loss?

“It’s Only So Much A Single Person Can Take”: Towanda Braxton Explains Why She Spazzed Out In “BFV” Premiere

August 19th, 2014 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

If you tuned into the premiere of Braxton Family Values last week, I’m sure you saw all the bad energy and glass throwing that occurred.
It all started at Tamar’s birthday party when one of her friends, a fella named Charles, stood up and made a speech after the sisters saying that Tamar hadn’t changed in all the years that he’s known her. This directly contradicts claims from the Braxton sisters that Tamar has changed since finally reaching solo fame.

Things went left when the sisters (minus Toni who was in bed over a lupus flare up) took the man’s comments personal. Tamar tried to defend her friend from her sisters, and from there, the tension was non-stop, with Towanda calling out Tamar’s beloved (but sometimes crazy) fans at a dinner for Toni. By the end of the episode and a third dining opportunity, things came to a head. Tamar left the table because she didn’t want to argue with her sisters any longer, and eventually, Towanda flipped the HELL out. She stated that she felt like no one really cared about her and her feelings before banging on the table, flipping over glasses and storming off.

From the outside looking in, it was definitely a breaking point for Towanda, and she tried to explain her behavior on the WeTV blog.

For YEARS I’ve never been one to share or show my emotions. It’s almost an expectation from my family to not even ask about me or my feelings. Therefore, I taught myself not to show them at all and to suppress my feelings to be buried in the pit of my soul. When Iyanla was my life coach, she warned me that somehow, it’s going to get to a point of explosion….Boy was she right! I tried to hold on to my emotions to no avail.

It’s only so much a single person can take. When my CHILDREN were being attacked on social media, that’s where I drew the line. I’ve been baffled in trying to understand why the innocent relatives were not being defended. The ignorance of childish cyber bullies need boundaries and needs to be addressed by their leader.

One thing is for certain, I’m ABSOLUTELY not ever going to tolerate ANYONE disrespecting my children or nieces and nephews. They are off limits. I know I can’t expect anyone to act or react the way that I’d like.

I can no longer be a punching bag of everyone else’s emotions. Just because I don’t wear my emotions on my sleeve, it doesn’t mean I’m not hurting or going through something. I am human.

If you missed out on the episode, the full thing is below. But if you want to see where things went haywire, start watching from the 32:00 mark.

“We Have An Open And Front Door” Towanda Talks Open Marriage With Andre On Wendy Williams

July 22nd, 2014 - By Veronica Wells

In the season four trailer for “Braxton Family Values” included above, it seems like all hell breaks loose. The sisters are talking about pressing charges, Tamar’s threatening to quit and in what seems like something completely out of character, we watch Towanda spazz out at a dinner table, pushing glasses over while she yells that no one cares about her.

Well, until the season premieres on August 14, we won’t know what’s going on and whether or not there will be any resolution. But today on the “Wendy Williams Show,” sisters Trina and Towanda came and sat down with Wendy to discuss what they could about their sisterly drama, the Braxton family album and the state of their on-again-off-again marriages.

See what the ladies had to say.

Towanda on her breakdown

“I know it was hard for everyone to see because generally, I don’t show emotion, so that was like 40 years of suppression.”

Trina: “Well it was really difficult to see her react that way because Towanda is always the Rock of Gibraltar. She always acts like nothing bothers her and nothing ever gets to her and she’s always like, ‘Oh, if you need anything, just call me.’ And that’s wonderful however if something’s on your mind, you have to let it out. Otherwise it turns into the blowout you just saw there.”

Tamar being at the center of the drama

Towanda: “Yea, even when were were growing up.”

Trina: “Well she’s the baby in every sense of the word so now that we are growing up and going through all these growing pains, she still wants to act like the baby.”

Towanda: “It’s good [our relationship with Tamar], its a great relationship. Even though we argue hard, we still love each other.”


Their Romantic Relationships

Trina: “Well you know, we’ve been square dancing for a lot of years, we’re in we’re out, we’re in, we’re out.  We are concentrating on being good parents right now. And when we stepped away we decided that no matter what we are going through, that our kids come first.”

Wendy: “Gabe, and I didn’t realize this, is not the biological father of your two children.”

Trina: “But don’t tell him that honey…”

Wendy: “Do we ever see their bio father on the show?”

Trina and Towanda: “You don’t want to.”

Towanda: “He’s like…” *inflates herself to insinuate he’s overweight.*

Wendy: “Are you all sleeping in the same bed?

Trina: “You mean do, we sleep together? Yeah we do sometimes.”

Wendy: “Are living under the same roof?”

Trina: “We are working on that, we’re working on that, its a gradual process.”


Towanda’s relationship with Andre:

Wendy: “You all’s marriage is one good footing?”

Towanda: b”Well, it’s on a foot.”

Wendy: “Do you still have an open marriage?”

Towanda: “Well we have an open and front door.”

Trina: “What does that mean?”

Towanda tried to play coy, telling them they would have to just keep watching the show. But both Wendy and Trina kept pushing, asking exactly what are the rules.

Wendy: “Does Andre go out and have sexual relations with other women?”

Towanda: “I don’t know.”

Trina: “And if so, does he tell you?”

Towanda: “I have to be honest. If he does, I don’t know about it. He’s home with the kids a lot, while I’m on the road. So honestly, I don’t see how he would have time.”

Wendy: “Do you date?”

Towanda: “I don’t, I haven’t dated.”

Wendy: “But you have the rule in place just in case something walks by you that you like?”

Towanda: “Yes.”

Whether or not Tamar is going to quit BFV

Towanda: “Tamar quits every season.”

Trina: “Even when we were playing games, whenever Tamar would lose, she’d pack the game up and put it away and quit. So you know, she’s being a baby. That’s Tamar.”

You can watch the full video, where the ladies talk about the sister album and how long they think the show will last on the next page. And be sure to tune into the new season of “Braxton Family Values” on Thursday, August 14 at 9 pm on WE Tv.

So What Happens To Logan While Tamar Is On Tour?

Being a working mom is tough enough, but what happens when a mother’s job requires her to travel across the country on a regular basis? Reality star Tamar Braxton recently spoke with People about how she manages to still spend quality time with her 1-year-old son, Logan Vincent Herbert, even when she’s out on the road. For one, the 37-year-old singer says little Logan goes everywhere she goes.

“Logan goes with me everywhere and brings a normalcy to everything,” she said. “I make sure he knows I’m his mother and I put him to bed every night and he wakes up to me.”

But she can’t take all of the credit for this decision, Tamar adds that this is something she learned from her siblings.

“My sisters are great mothers,” she said . “Now, for the first time in our lives, we’re all mothers.”

It seems like it was just yesterday when the singer first announced her pregnancy, now her baby boy is walking and talking.

“He’s amazing,” she gushed. “He’s walking, he’s talking, he’s playing the piano — he’s a little Benjamin Button, it’s crazy. I don’t know what happened, he’s not a baby anymore.”

While he looks like the perfect combination of both Tamar and Vince, the first-time mom says Logan is taking after his dad in more ways than one.

“They have some of the same clothes and it’s the funniest thing. They both wear caps. It’s like his mini-me,” she adds.

Speaking of clothes, Tamar admits that keeping up with Logan’s laundry is not one of her strong suits. Thankfully, she has her mom and the baby’s nanny to help out with that.

“Either my mom or his nanny will do it. I’m not the laundry girl,” she confessed. “I’m terrible! I’ve ruined too many good pieces. Some people can’t cook — well, I can’t do laundry.”

Our girl seems to be handling this mommy thing like a pro—with the exception of her refusal to do laundry.

Nooo She Wasn’t Ready: Tamar Braxton Clowns Out-Of-Tune Fan On Stage

Tamar Braxton Clowns Out Of Tune Fan

Source: Instagram

A word to the wise ladies and gentlemen: if you’re ever attending a Tamar Braxton concert and she asks for singers to come up on stage, be sure that you’re ready to really show your stuff; because if not, you will be publicly clowned on Instagram for all the world to see.

Last night, Tamar Braxton posted a clip from one of her shows from the Love and War Tour. It seems that she invited several fans to come on stage and sing her hit song “Love and War.” Now, if you’ve listened to that song carefully, you know that it is not an easy song to sing…at all. It’s presented a challenge for even Tamar herself at times. It’s not for amateurs. But that didn’t stop one fan from trying…and failing.

And while this is certainly not an uncommon occurrence at concerts, Tamar’s over the top reaction is what makes this video so very hilarious. I was literally in tears. I’m not going to ruin the surprise just watch the video below and be entertained.

My first and only reaction was “funny” but others are saying that Tamar was wrong for putting this woman, her fan, on blast like this.

She captioned the picture: #nolies I miss you <3 #Tamartianfriends #funnersalways #love&wartour

What do you think? Tamar Braxton Nearly Passes Out During Las Vegas Performance

tamar braxton nearly collapses


Tamar Braxton may need to take a break for a bit. The flamboyant star gave Las Vegas Tamartians a scare when she had a meltdown during her performance the other night before nearly losing her voice.

Friday night her body almost gave out while on stage and husband Vince even went to assist the singer off stage before she took an extra-long break before her next set. The singer clearly felt some type of way and issued a letter of appreciation to her fans via Instagram:

“I really felt like last night was #lightsout for me! I felt sooo bad I was shaking. I honestly couldn’t remember a lyric ( which is nothing new) a dance step (every night) but…I never lost my MYSELF where my body took over my mind and left me helpless. I wanted to stay but I couldn’t. I wanted to drink water and catch my breath but I couldn’t.”

“I was powerless and heartbroken.”

The relentless Tamar says she didn’t want to give up on her fans so easily, but seriously felt like she didn’t have the strength to continue at first. She credits her fans with helping her fight her way through the rest of the show by singing the words to her songs when she couldn’t do it.

“I tried to get up and go back 3 times but I couldn’t move, talk, sing & worse, breathe. Not until I heard how after all that time past that you ALL was waiting for me no one left!”

“I GOT my life last night cause u gave it to me! I walked back on stage feeling defeated, frustrated, scared, VOICELESS and STILL u ALL excepted &still loved the REAL Tamar.”

“THAT is how my voice came back I had a TON of energy and you even sang every song until I could do it by myself!! I KNOW you love me for ME! I’ll never forget how u changed my life last night & you all have left me feeling that I will NEVER be the same! Thank you for saving me!”

Team work makes the dream work. Those Tamartians are dedicated. Even though Tamar is a bit much at times, we appreciate the singer’s honesty and appreciation. I’ve been to concerts where the lead acts have come out drunk, high and expect the audience to sing their whole set because they partied too hard the night before. Tamar just seems tired. Hopefully she is able to get some rest so we can get some of that sass back on stage.

Meet Alvester Martin, ladies. He’s a burgeoning singer and dancer (classically trained at that) who has shown off his talents while on tour and performing with the likes of Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, and most recently, Tamar Braxton. That’s right, he can bust quite the move on the dance floor. The cutie moved to LA to launch his singing career, but found himself looking to pay the bills and get his foot in the door working as a background dancer for Beyoncé. But he’s been getting the chance to step in the spotlight and share his delightful pipes with the world. Seriously, he’s really good. Check out his cover of Bruno Mars’ “Locked out of Heaven.” Killer voice.

He’s obviously very talented, but Mr. Martin is also very attractive. Just ask the folks drooling over his pictures on Instagram. We wanted to help you get more acquainted with the beauty of this man, so we decided to pick him as our evening eye candy of the week. Check him out in all his ab-a-licious glory and let us know if he’s your cup of tea. Clearly we’re already big fans of him…
