Tamar Braxton went on ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show’ today to discuss how she felt about being let go from the ‘The Real’. The interview lasted for about 30 minutes. In the interview, Tamar said she doesn’t view herself as a celebrity and that she is just like everybody else. The interview showed a different side of Tamar a more human side. Come to find out Vince was the first to know after making a phone call to a producer who broke the news of her being fired.
“He was just like, ‘I think you got fired, I think,'” Tamar said. “I’m like, ‘Whatchu talking about? Fired for what?’ My heart sunk into my shoes, really. I pretty much fell over.”
Tamar said her sisters along with her husband were there for her in full support.
Tonight’s episode of ‘The Braxton Family Values’ tonight will show her reaction 2 hours after she found out. The singer said she was on her way to film for the show when she heard the news from her husband Vince.
Steve Harvey said that his production company inked a deal with Tamar to produce a talk show.
“We saw the opportunity of what people may recognize as the end, but it’s not,” he said. “It’s such a beginning. She has such a bright future. She is such a star. She has so much to offer. She is a plethora of talent. We think she would make a great game show host, we think she would make a great talk show host, we think she’s in line to produce a number of series…we are proud to announce today that Tamar Braxton is already on her feet.”
This is great news for Tamar Braxton. Starting off the month with deals in the work is amazing after these long couple of weeks. Check out the full interview.
Now this is my opinion. So be prepared.
During this 30 minute interview, Steve did not ask her about some of the things that were said about her departure. Why was she let go? Was it truly Hollywood practices or was it some of her on doing? The focus group that said that working class women were not feeling her vernacular and body language. None of that came up. I won’t go in on Steve too bad because he isn’t a journalist.
This wasn’t an interview probably why she decided to do it in the first. No tough questions only praise and talk of her being the victim. It’s never Tamar’s fault. Stuff does happen I will agree but she should’ve shined some light on the situation. She only answered to the comments of it seeming like it was staged. Referring to why her face was beat and her hair was snatched. Which it did come off as scripted. Not one second do I believe the cameras were rolling while she received the news. I believe the producers called her and told Tamar that we need to get on this ASAP.
Tamar, they said that you were unprofessional and your actions may have caused to lose your seat on ‘The Real’ and you proved them right twice. You took to Instagram to say you were backstabbed by someone close to you. Never said who which led people to believe it was one of your co-hosts. This caused Loni Love to get dragged so bad she had to make a video.
Tamar commented on a picture that through shade at her former co-hosts. Was the comment necessary nope but she did it.
This is the most humble I have ever heard you, ma’am. I believe you can go far in this industry but this attitude makes people feel uneasy about you.
Your former assistant made the situation worse by speaking for you which came off as unprofessional. It made us think that you put him up to it.
No question about the video of Loni saying she didn’t know anything that was going on. That should have been your time to tell everyone that she and others have done nothing to you being let go. I hope everything works out with this talk show cause I’m willing to see how much you have grown.
Rolling Ray Undergoes Surgery After Wig Catches On Fire
Social media star Rolling Ray underwent surgery Tuesday morning to treat serious burns on his body after his terrible wig accident last week.
In a series of IG stories, he let his audience follow along as he prepped for surgery.
Last week Rolling Ray announced he was hospitalized after his wig caught on fire! During a January 13 Instagram Live session hosted straight from his hospital bedside, he showed his severely burnt and damaged face telling viewers his “whole skin, legs, arms, feet, and everything” were burned.
In a more recent Live, Ray explained the incident that led to his whole wig catching on fire: an unfortunate smoking accident. “It just, like, lit on fire when I tried to light the cigarette,” he recounted. “So I get to trying to snatch the wig off. B***h, the fire goes to my f*****g shirt, to my feet, to my legs, to my back. It’s a fire everywhere, it’s a fire in the whole room.”
Of course the internet trolled him in a disgusting display of ableism and heartlessness. Comments like “Rolling Ray should have stopped, dropped, and rolled” and “karma’s a b***h” had social media conflicted in its feelings about his accident. His sensation comes from his harsh and, often, below-the-belt reads (just last month he told Yung Miami to “dig (sic) up” her dead baby father. However, the criticism didn’t stop him from responding on Twitter.
Rolling Ray might be problematic as all get-out, but we do not tolerate ableism here. We wish him well as he heals.
Fantasia Reveals Gender of Baby On the Way!
On Tuesday singer-songwriter and “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino took to social media to reveal that she is having a baby girl, her first child with husband Kendall Taylor.
In a series of Instagram stories, Fantasia showed pink fireworks being shot off during a gender reveal party, to her and her hubby’s excitement! She continued by sharing what her daughter-to-be’s name will be: Keziah London Taylor.
The news comes after the couple revealed they had struggled to conceive since their 2015 marriage. During a November episode of her IG Live show “Taylor Talks,” she described continuously praying for a child with her husband. Fantasia, a deeply devout Christian, was obviously elated when she shared the news.
“God I Want To Thank You!” she said in an Instagram caption. “You Gave Us A Seed even when the Doctor said that one of my Tubes [was] Closed you said Different. @salute1st I Love You King and I can’t wait to see who He or She acts Like.”
We can see Fantasia and family are all super excited to be welcoming a baby girl into their lives. All congratulations to her.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Getting Divorced, Report Says
In a story published Tuesday evening, Page Six is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced, with the two already in settlement talks. The news comes after the couple spent the holiday season separately – Kanye at his ranch outside Cody, Wyoming, Kim and the kids with her famous family in southern California.
A source close to Kardashian was quoted saying, “Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.” Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are said to be splitting because of marital problems directly related to Kanye’s very public mental health struggles.
For several years the rapper’s various antics have caused fans to worry. After coming out as a Trump supporter, West then announced his own 2020 presidential bid under a new political party: the Birthday Party. At a campaign rally in South Carolina, he was seen rambling, debating individual audience members, and at times, crying. In various interviews, he has rambled on almost incoherently, and his tweetstorms are now infamous.
For her part, Kim has always supported her husband and has openly discussed the difficulties of their marriage. Back in June, she shared on social media, “Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand… People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual (has) to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
It appears she has finally reached her limit in the union with the unnamed source saying, “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s**t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Separately, a source close to Kanye alleges the rapper is sick of his wife and her family, which might have some truth to it since he has tweeted some pretty nasty things about them in the past. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” he said in a now-deleted July tweet. Recently, he hasn’t been featured on his wife’s Instagram and has largely remained out of the public eye.
With the news yet to be confirmed, the “divorce is imminent” reports are just rumors for now. We’ll be following the news as more information comes out.
