Yesterday, we posted excerpts from Tamar Braxton’s Ebony.com interview. In the interview, the singer emphatically denied rumors that she bleaches her skin. And still several folks, including some of you on this site, doubted Tamar’s honesty. So today, in response to the doubters, she posted this picture of her skin on Instagram, including a shot of her fingers where you can see her vitiligo up close.
She included this as the caption:
Although I have NOTHING to prove….I have NOTHING to LIE about! #donetalkingaboutthebleachB.S.
What do you think? Should Tamar have released these photos? Do you believer her now?
Tamar is the Braxton sister we either love to hate or hate to love. She’s definitely an acquired taste. But in a recent interview with Ebony.com, Tamar shed some light on why she is the way she is. If you watch Braxton Family Values faithfully, you may remember the episode where Tamar remembers how she was in two abusive relationships, back to back. She told the story of how one boyfriend drug her out of her apartment by her hair. (Sounds like something out of a Tyler Perry movie.)
Here’s what she had to say about the relationships:
“I can’t make anybody believe, I can’t change anybody’s mind about anything. (The abuse,) it happened. I’m not all the way comfortable with sharing a lot of what happened to me (yet), but what I said was true. When I’m ready to talk about my abusive past I will, I’m sorry that I’m not. But if it wasn’t for (God), I wouldn’t be here.”
She said being abused and feeling like she had no power or say in her relationships “definitely, definitely, definitely” play a role in the way she interacts with people today. She says wanting to attack before she can be attacked is a defense mechanism.
“I haven’t always been vocal about my feelings, especially in a relationship. Now, I make sure that I’m very vocal about my feelings, everybody knows how I feel. Sometimes it’s over the top and most of the time it’s ‘Team Too-Much,’ But I have to do a lot. (I was) a shy person who had self-esteem issues trying to figure it out — now, I’ve gotten over my hangovers. You say, I’m comfortable and confident, it took a long time to get there. Maybe like a year or so before “Braxton Family Values,” I wasn’t that person. I was faking it til I make it, pretty much.”
If you’ve already played out “Love and War” on your iPod, you’ll be happy to know that Tamar Braxton has dropped her new single, “The One,” just in time for summer, and it’s definitely hot!
The Braxton sister samples the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy,” (aka Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit”) and croons about only needing one man in her life–Vince?
“You know very well, who you are/You’re the only one, you’ve got my heart.”
The singer talked about the summer banger with Rap-Up TV, which was produced by Yung Berg and LaShawn Daniels, and discussed the video, which she did while preggers in Cali: “It has so much energy, it’s so fun, it’s a summertime anthem record.”
“The concept of the video is just a summer throwback. It kinda gives you that feeling when you was in high school and you was with your boyfriend or your girlfriend and you go to the park and you hang out and you get all cute, and it’s just funners.”
We’re still waiting on that new album, Love and War, but with mommy duties coming, we’ll probably have to keep waiting. But to hold you over, here’s “The One,” with the singer performing it live. And to hear the iTunes version, click over to Rap-Up.com. Tell us if it’s a pass or play for you!
*If ever there was a time to be private, childbirth would be appropriate. Ain’t no body got time for that!
But Tamar Braxton wants to share the experience with her fans and followers via the next season of “Tamar & Vince.” Maybe this episode should be called, “Tamar” because she’s moving forward with the taping of those precious, gut-wrenching moments despite her husband’s wishes.
“My husband’s not comfortable with any of this,” she stated with a giggle before collecting her thoughts. Tamar is a little more open to the idea because she feels that it’s only right to continue bringing fans along for the rest of the journey that she started last season on “Braxton Family Values” and her own spin-off.

Tamar Braxton Hints That Reality TV Cameras May Be Allowed In The Delivery Room When She Gives Birth
If you’re a fan of Tamar & Vince or Braxton Family Values, you know that the road to parenthood has been long for expectant couple Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert. Chances are you’ve heard Tamar yapping about not wanting a baby right now, to entertaining to idea of “popsicle babies” and even dramatically asking her big sister Towanda to carry her baby as a surrogate. Now that the youngest Braxton sister is with child and preparing to give birth very soon, she says that it would be unfair if she didn’t allow fans to witness it. During a recent interview with Hip Hollywood, the “Love & War” singer dished on why she wants to allow cameras in the delivery room and had a good laugh about her bestie Tiny spilling the beans on her baby’s sex. Check out some of what she had to say.
On Tamar & Vince cameras in the delivery room:
“I think we’re going to let them in as much as we can. You don’t want to bring your viewer all the way to the point where you went through In vitro, then it didn’t happen like that and it happened naturally. I just think it’s a story to tell and not to tell the whole story is kind of unfair. But you won’t be looking in my purse! My purse is off limits. I don’t even wanna see inside my purse!
On Halle Berry’s pregnancy:
“The one person I can look at and be like ‘Damn, she looks good’ is Halle Berry. I think she’s like 4 1/2 [months] because her little bump came out of nowhere. I think she’s killing it. She’s amazing. She’s 46 years old and you know she’s about to shut everybody down. I can’t wait to hurry up and have mine [laughs]. Halle Berry we are not going to compete with you. No thanks.”
On Tiny spilling the beans about her baby’s sex:
“I seen it [the video] and I cracked up. I thought it was funny. I can’t confirm or deny because I don’t want to tell anybody [laughs]. But you can believe whatever you wanna believe. What I will says is, until you hear from me, you should believe what I say! Tiny, I love her to pieces. She’s crazy. She’s so fun. I don’t think it was malicious. I won’t hold anything against her because I don’t think she spilled any beans.”

Is it just us or are celebrities these days making more headlines with Twitter shade than talent? These celebrities have made drama and pot stirring part of their personal brand.
You may have seen pictures of a pregnant Tamar draped in white circulating the internet. You may have even known that she was wearing that conservative gown to BET’s Celebration of Gospel. And Tamar wasn’t just in attendance, she sang. She wants all ya’ll to know that this baby won’t keep her off stage…though she probably won’t be pop, locking and dropping it for the next few months. Either way, at the Celebration she performed Walter Hawkins’ “Be Grateful.” And she slayed vocally. You can’t even count the runs in this song.
Check her out in the clip below.
Tell us, did she do that?!
Five years ago, most of us had no idea who Tamar Braxton was. (Some of ya’ll had the album but most of you didn’t.) Well, all of that changed when “Braxton Family Values” hit We TV. Now, when you think of the Braxton sisters, Tamar’s name must be a part of the conversation. While Toni sang her way into our hearts. Tamar chatted her way in our affections and sometimes our nerves. Whatever the case may check out the catch phrases that made her famous.
Back in February we placed Tamar Braxton on official baby bump watch. There was just something about her Valentine’s Day appearance on 106 and Park that seemed a tad suspect. One month later Tamar confirmed that we were on the money by announcing her pregnancy during an appearance on Good Morning America. Now it looks like we may have to do the same for Monica Brown.
We can’t say for sure if Monica has a bun in the oven or not, but this past weekend the singer performed at the 8th Annual Jazz in the Garden event at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida and it appears that our girl was using an oversized handbag, microphones and whatever else she could get her hands on to hide something behind that pink loose-fitting blazer.
According to the YBF, concert attendees say that the singer’s belly was protruding a bit more than usual and in the press room following her performance, she rested her hand on her stomach the majority of the time. Not to mention that the 32-year-old mom of two appeared to have used very specific posing angles while being photographed. Now, we could be overthinking things, but I suppose we will have to wait and see because time will certainly tell. Until then, we’re placing Monica on official baby watch! This would be her third child, but the first that she would share with hubby Shannon Brown.

You know how it is when you’re excited for your friends, sometimes stuff just bubbles over. Stuff that they probably would want you to keep to yourself. And that’s exactly what happened when Tiny was speaking with Hip Hollywood. When they asked her about her bestie, Tamar Braxton’s new bundle, she started doing a little dance in the chair before she dropped the bomb about the sex of the baby.
I know everything about this baby. And I know…I was gonna say what it was. I know the baby’s name. Of course I know what it is, and I’ve seen HIS little face. She has a 4D picture…Oh.
Whoops! Talk about a slip up. At least she didn’t reveal his name. Either way, we’re sure Tamar will manage to forgive her.
So it’s a boy! Vince must be so excited! By the way, has anyone else noticed that boys are a trend with the Braxton sisters? Towanda is the only one with a daughter. Since it’s a boy, Tamar probably won’t have to deal with the smart-mouthed little girl telling her to “get her life,” like we predicted.
