Just when we thought it was going to be over after cried tears on Braxton Family Values last night. More sh*t is about to hit the fan.
Braxton Family Values aired last night and it was supposed to show Tamar’s reaction to being let go from ‘The Real‘. It was cute for tv and most certainly gained some extra viewers but some of the production wasn’t impressed. They thought it was a ‘reenactment’ and completely staged. Daily Mail is reporting that a source who allegedly works for the Braxton Family Values said everything, in fact ,was staged.
‘They reenacted the day that Tamar found out she was fired and staged an entire scene where Tamar is laying in bed crying and declaring that she doesn’t know why she was fired, while her sisters attempt to console her,’ a source, who viewed the episode told Daily Mail Online.- Daily Mail
To make matters worse The New York Post reported that Tamar’s husband who was an executive producer on ‘The Real’ knew of the firing was coming 2 weeks before it happened.
Seems like someone is lying and all of this isn’t adding up. Everybody is telling their side of the story but no one has released any proof. It was a rumor that production was going to release a video of her going off and cursing out production. That still hasn’t been seen.
Now it’s being reported that letters were sent to WeTV, Tamar & Vince that they might need to remember their confidentiality agreements. That’s if they continue with the narrative that she is the victim then they may have to seek legal action.
All we know is that Tamar will no longer be on the show. Nothing has been confirmed but she will not be returning for season 3. According to Daily Mail producers wanted to let Vince go and have a meeting with Tamar. The meeting was supposed to discuss what she needs to do to keep her job. We know that didn’t happen.
My opinion. At this point, I’m not sure who to believe because we have no proof of anything. The tapes of her throwing a fit could be leaked if they are true but it would hurt ‘The Real’ more than anyone else. It would seem too messy. These people have been in the industry way too long and they know how to play the game. The game is to slander you without them being able to be sued.
Which is why they might be threatening her with a lawsuit now. The whole ordeal is unprofessional and it’s a bit too much. I believe they wanted to let her go swiftly but when she continued to talk mess things changed.
On Braxton Family Values last night, she cried a river and said she wasn’t able to promote her album. Karama is knocking on her door 3 years later. We knew this was coming that’s why everybody is interested in the story.
Tamar, please find out what you want to do. Either be an artist or a reality star.
Uncle Snoop Get Your Apology to Ari Lennox Ready
Apparently, everyone’s favorite uncle likes apologizing. Fresh off of his apology tour for his controversial comments towards broadcast journalists Gayle King, Snoop Dogg decided to comment on Ari Lennox’s Instagram live to instruct her to “grow your own hair.”
Yesterday, the Dreamville songbird took to Instagram Live in true Ari fashion to document her trying on a new lace front wig. Not known for wearing wigs, she struggled with figuring out how much lace to cut and securing the hair as she entertained her followers with hilarious gestures and commentary.
Eventually, a snippet of the video ended up on The Shade Room for everyone’s viewing pleasure.
Moments later, Snoop was unnecessarily commenting under the video.
In no time, women were coming to Ari’s defense, reminding the legendary rapper that his wife and daughter are no strangers to wigs.
You’d think men would know to leave their opinions to themselves when it comes to women’s hair, especially black women, but clearly, Uncle Snoop forgot to read that particular memo.
Once Ari caught wind of Snoop’s comments, she delivered a lovely little shade tree, posting a photo of Snoop wearing a blonde wig with the caption, “Uncle I just…I just thought we had an understanding….”
Following the backlash that he’s currently receiving, I can already envision the apology that’s sure to follow. Perhaps someone should remind Uncle Snoop that the best apology is changed behavior…
DJ D-Nice Has Spun His Way Into the Living Rooms of Thousands
Every day, legendary DJ D-Nice (a.k.a. Derrick Jones) spends countless hours helping thousands of global citizens forget about the coronavirus pandemic and financial woes with his “Homeschool” parties.
Initially jumping on Instagram Live to cure his boredom while “self-isolating,” D-Nice had an audience of a few hundred, mostly friends. As word began to spread, it grew to a few thousand. By Sunday, over 160,000 people joined his live for a virtual party that included the heavyweights such as Michelle Obama, Jennifer Lopez, Jada Pinkett-Smith, 9th Wonder, Jimmy Fallon, and Vice President Joe Biden.
During a CBS This Morning interview, D-Nice shared, “I literally just played what feels good. I wanted people to feel good. I wanted their experience to be lifted through music, just one song at a time.” And he’s done just that. While on live, his comment section is a constant stream of cheers, shout outs, and music-lovers asking, “Where the drinks at?” It feels like the best VIP section you’ll ever experience but from your living room.
“No matter what your problems are, you can put on a good tune and it just takes you away and I was trying to do that,” he explained. “It wasn’t just the music, it was the whole experience and everyone escaping what’s going on today just for a few hours.”
While some of his neighbors have complained about the noise, D-Nice is committed to keeping the party going as the universal language of music is playing a vital role in keeping us all connected.
We have DJ D-Nice to thank for that!
Jay Electronica & Joe Budden Used Their Twitter Fingers to Exchange Insults
It took 10 years for Jay Electronica to release his highly-anticipated album, A Written Testimony. While some are singing his praises, others are incredibly disappointed. One such person is former rapper turned media personality, Joe Budden.
Budden used his platform, The Joe Budden Podcast episode Dry Snitching to express his disappointment. Budden proclaimed, “You’ve been missing for ten years- which is cool, ’cause you’ve been living life. But that confidence that I thought you might’ve been living life with is suppressed…that lens that I’m looking through paints the story of a different MC. And that MC is one that would get smacked around by Hov on every song.”
In response, Electronica took to Twitter and posted a video clip of DaBaby saying “fuck it,” directing the tweet at Rory, one of the co-hosts on Budden’s podcast.
Shortly after, Budden responded referring to Jay-Z’s performance on A Written Testimony, where he appears on eight of ten tracks. “I never got absolutely mopped around on my own project either… @ me, not Rory.”
Here’s how the rest of that conversation went:
The tirade ended with Electronica demanding credit for “lighting up” the podcast episode.
Electronica released A Written Testimony on Friday, March 13th. It’s his first solo album after more than ten years of delays with features by Jay-Z, The-Dream and Travis Scott, with additional production by The Alchemist, No ID, Swizz Beatz and Hit-Boy.
