“At Least I Have Edges”: Kenya Moore Blasts Tamar Braxton After Singer Called Her “Thirsty” On WWHL

While visiting with Andy Cohen at “Watch What Happens Live,” Tamar was asked a question from a viewer calling in about what she thought of Kenya Moore’s attempt at a singing career (remember “Gone With The Wind Fabulous”?), and which RHOA cast member is her favorite. While Braxton tried her best to avoid throwing shade, Moore still ended up feeling some type of way about her comments.

Here’s what Braxton had to say:

“She sings? No shade! No shade! ‘Twirl, twirl! That’s the record?’ Yeah, I heard that in the club one time. I didn’t know that was a serious record. No shade!

I can’t lie, she’s not my favorite. My favorite is NeNe. She’s a great girl and we had drinks like a week and a half ago. I swear that every Atlanta reality star was at the bar for some odd reason. Oh my God, it was a scene with a gangster lean, honey. 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.”

Moore caught wind of her comments and took to Twitter to respond:

KenyaKenya 1 Kenya 2 Kenya 3 Kenya 4

This isn’t the first time Tamar Braxton has spoken about Moore and her antics. Earlier in the year, when speaking on the Russ Parr Morning Show, she called Moore out because of her behavior with Apollo Nida.

“I do think there were several ratchet moments, but the one that sticks out to me the most was Ms. Kenya. I’m not talking about Kenya per se, but just any woman who feels like it’s OK to have somebody’s husband and have a conversation with them one-on-one. And try to be friends with him and not the wife. I’m sorry. I feel like I have to read all the Kenyas of the world who just be trying it and then come to the face of the wife and be like, ‘You need to ask him. I think he need to speak for himself,’ No ho! I’ma speak for you – me and him! That’s my man. I don’t like that stuff. You know, I’m real protective of my Teddy Ruxpin. And I wish somebody would try me like that! I just feel like she tried Phaedra like that because she felt like she could. Now she wouldn’t try NeNe like that. See what I’m trying to say?”

Check out Braxton’s conversation with Andy Cohen below and you let us know what you think:

Don’t Start None, Won’t Be None: Celebrities Who Can’t Seem To Stay Out Of Drama

Celebrities are just like everyday people, and if you talk crazy about them, they just might talk crazy about you in response. It happens. But the following people on this list are known for staying involved in public squabbles with both famous and everyday individuals. Either they enjoy it or their mouths continuously get them into trouble. You decide.

From drama with “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-stars NeNe Leakes, Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams, to going head-to-head with Vivica A. Fox, Kenya Moore has no problem with being in the center of drama. In fact, being known for petty antics has helped her bank account increase substantially, so whether she’s texting someone else’s man or being accused of stealing someone’s phone, Moore is happy to create chaos.

“Do The Grammy’s Have A Duet With Auto Tune Category Yet?”: Tamar Braxton Throws Shade At Big Sister Traci On Twitter

From the outside looking in, it would make sense for people to say that Toni Braxton is a major part of the reasons why her sisters are famous. If she hadn’t taken part in “Braxton Family Values” in 2011, there probably wouldn’t have been a reason for people to watch or the chance for the show to happen at all. And Tamar, Traci, Trina and Towanda wouldn’t have been able to take that spotlight and flip it into albums, business ventures and more. But when the sisters had a conversation on their reality show recently about what Toni knows about the business, and the impact she had on their careers, things got heated between Trina and Tamar.

When sister Traci decided to put her two cents in later by posting a pic of Toni, reminding EVERYONE that she paved the way for the Braxtons to be successful, Tamar didn’t like that.


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!

View on Instagram

A fan seeing the picture of Toni holding one of her Grammys told Traci that she would get one soon (“your going to get a Grammy Traci I can see it already”). Traci has already put out the song “Last Call,” which is off of her album Crash & Burn, and she has been doing performances to promote it. Some love it, others think it’s a little boring, and a few people have claimed that Traci used autotune in it. Even though she appeared in the video, Tamar threw quite the bit of shade at such Grammy hopes and dreams for her big sis.

When people on Twitter put her on blast for shading her sister, Tamar deleted the tweet, defended herself, and gave sister Toni her props. She also called out a guy who works for Toni and Towanda Braxton, who she claims lied to her sisters about statements she made.

As for the guy she tried to put on blast (she used the wrong Twitter handle), he threw his own bit of shade at Tamar on Twitter.

Traci had no response to Tamar’s comments on Twitter. But I hope that they don’t let their reality show, their fame or the people who come with it (like this Zo character) negatively impact their relationships with one another. Totally not worth it. Support your sisters!

Tamar Advises Women To Sign Prenups—Even Though She Didn’t

During a recent episode of “The Real,” the ladies discussed Nick and Mariah’s seemingly inevitable divorce and talk of the estrange couple’s iron-clad prenup. This, of course, led to a discussion about whether or not prenuptial agreements are necessary when folks decide to tie the knot. The always outspoken Tamar kicked things off by encouraging successful women to sign them.

“I think that when you have the kind of shinety oldddddddddddddddd coins that Mariah has; she has some old crinkled up hundred dollars bills that we ain’t seen in like thirty years. You kind of have to protect yourself. I’m not saying that Nick is a guydigger. He’s not a guydigger at all. He works really hard. He’s always worked hard for Mariah and he’s not that kind of dude. BUT when you got the kind of wealth of Mariah, you kind of got to protect yourself.”

Tamar went on to say that her parents taught her that people become “unrecognizable” during breakups, which is another reason why women should consider prenups.

“People become unrecognizable when you’re going through a breakup. I remember when my mother was saying that my father became unrecognizable, and this is the person she’s been with since she was 15 years old. I wasn’t raised with a silver spoon in my mouth, but I wasn’t raised with a plastic one either. But at the end of the day, my parents built what they have now together. I think I took that to my own marriage.”

Interestingly, though she encourages brides-to-be to sign on the dotted line, Tamar says that she and Vince don’t have a prenup.

“So Vincent and I, we don’t have a pre-nup because when we got married, we had a discussion and we discussed divorce is not an option. So, that will always be the last, last, last, last of the resort! Because I am a product of a divorce child and I didn’t like the way that made me feel.”

Tamera also chimed in on the prenup conversation, revealing that she and her husband Adam signed them out of respect for their parents.

“Breakups cause people to act crazy,” Tamera explained. “Sometimes when people break up, they turn into the person that you didn’t marry. To me, it wasn’t not being romantic, it was being smart. Being wise.

Our parents actually told Adam and I to get a pre-nup before we got married. I made my money before Adam and I got married and he made his money with the family winery. And they just wanted to protect that and it made me feel good because I knew that Adam wasn’t marrying me for my money and I wasn’t marrying him for his. So in our case, it was more about respect.”

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

September 17th, 2014 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

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

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
Share to Twitter Email This

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.
