Tamar Braxton’s marriage to Vince Herbert has had one foot in the grave for a while now, all thanks to some cheating allegations and general Braxton-style drama. Last month she announced she was retiring from music in an attempt to keep her marriage alive. Well, a month later, and TMZ says that she’s done trying to save her marriage to Vince.
Apparently Tamar Braxton is taking some of her own advice and getting her life in the way she believes it needs getting. About a year ago, we learned that Toni’s little sister and one-woman dictionary was having marriage problems. Tamar’s 9 year marriage to Vince Herbert was reportedly over after he allegedly found out that she had been allegedly cheating.org on him with another man. Then they got into a messy, violent fight at an Atlanta hotel. Tamar and Vince stayed together and tried to work it out.
Tamar must really be serious about standing by her man, because she admitted to Entertainment Tonight that her upcoming album Bluebird of Happiness will be her last. Basically, she’s quitting her career for a man. That’s it, no more amazing hits like “Love and War” and “The One” and…uh, the one with the music video starring that low-budget cake? Yes, that one. That will be the end of that!
Don’t get too excited about the possibility of two tacky coat enthusiasts staying together; this story gets really messy. Last month, we learned that the 8 year marriage between Toni Braxton’s little sister Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert may be done thanks to her alleged cheating ways. Today we learn that not only are they not getting divorced, but they’re actually in a good place, relationship-wise. At least according to Tamar and Vince, who are in no way doing damage control after a violent incident that may or may not have happened at an Atlanta hotel on Sunday.
There’s a ton of Braxton women, their names all begin with a “T,” and I’m only familiar with two. Noted autism researcher Toni Braxton is one. The other is the chick who ends every sentence with “.com,“ Tamar Braxton. This item concerns the latter. Love B. Scott says that Tamar’s husband, producer Vince Herbert, is divorcing her due to her infidelity.com.
Sources exclusively tell lovebscott.com that the reason for the alleged split is because Tamar’s been cheating on her husband with another high-profile man for a while. Vince had been suspicious of his wife’s infidelity for quite some time and hired a private detective to find out all the details — and he found out EVERYTHING.
This drama went down in the soapiest way possible – in front of other people! The big dude reportedly accused Tamar of riding a penis that wasn’t his in a true-to-life “smelled the fart” moment right before the commercial. You know, it’s when everyone in a soap opera scene freezes and looks at each other like they smelt something horrid because one of Viki Lord Riley Buchanan Carpenter Davidson Banks’ multiple personalities surfaced on the witness stand! The situation supposedly got so ugly that Tamar and Vince began cutting checks so the witnesses would keep their traps shut. Vince feels that Tamar, who, in addition to being a reality persona, is also a singer and a former co-host on The Real, takes too many vacations and isn’t paying enough attention to their 3-year-old Logan. So he’s supposedly going for custody.
“He doesn’t know who Tamar is anymore. He says she’s not the same woman he married eight years ago,” said the source. “She’s too busy going on vacations to worry about the drama at home. He has the baby and that’s the only thing he’s concerned about.”
Just go on your own separate vacation, duh. Perhaps in response to this story, Tamar and Vince Instagrammed a lovey (and rather pancake make-upped) vid of themselves cuddling and singing yesterday. So maybe their marriage is going to survive, and I won’t have to learn the names of the other Braxton women for a follow-up post.
The Khloe to Toni Braxton‘s Kim, Tamar Braxton, has left The Chew. No. The View. No. That one with Julie Chen. No. The Real! The Real! She has left The Real. Jesus. How many of these kinds of shows are there? Variety tells us that The Real will be Muppet-less next season and both sides decided that it’s best they break up with each other. A rep for the show released this statement:
‘The Real’ and Tamar Braxton have mutually decided that Tamar will not be continuing with the show for its upcoming third season. She will be leaving in order to concentrate on her solo career. Everyone associated with ‘The Real’ appreciates Tamar’s efforts and the contributions she has made to the show’s success, and we wish her all the best for the future.
But! There’s more! Of course this shit isn’t so cut and dry. Continue reading
Dancing with the WHOs? announced the cast for its 21st season this morning and yes, this wreck is still on and yes, it’ll be on forever, because there will always be has-beens, fame whores and never-wases who will gladly take a check in exchange for busting out the Viennese Waltz while wearing tons of fucking sequins. The good and surprising news is that the producers didn’t cast a Duggar or Ben Affleck’s nanny or catfisher extraordinaire Rachel Dolezal (although that mess is going to be busy making the most out of being knocked up). The bad news is that Paula Deen is in the cast. Actually, I shouldn’t say that’s “bad news,” because I’m sure she’ll win back the hearts of America when she dances the Jive to Al Jolson’s “Mammy” while her partner is done up like a giant butter stick.
The entire cast is below and I think my brain squirted out a “scratching head emoji” only five times!
Andy Grammer (Wikipedia tells me he’s a singer) is paired with Allison Holker
Alexa Vega (the little girl from Spy Kids) is paired with Mark Ballas
Bindi Irwin (Australia’s sweetheart when Queen Gina isn’t available to do her sweetheart duties) is paired with Derek Hough
Chaka Khan is paired with Keo Motsepe
Paula Deen is paired with Louis Van Amstel
Hayes Grier (a Vine and YouTube “star“) is paired with Emma Slater
Nick Carter is with Sharna Burgess
Carlos Pena (the little girl from Spy Kids’ husband) is paired with Witney Carson
Gary Busey is paired with Anna Trebunskaya
Alek Skarlatos (the French train hero) is paired with Lindsay Arnold
Victor Espinoza (the jockey best known for riding American Pharoah who should’ve been cast instead) is paired with Karina Smirnoff
Tamar Braxton (living Muppet and Toni Braxton’s sister) is paired with Val Chermovskiy
Kim Zolciak (The WIG from Bravo) is paired with Tony Dovolani
I may have to start watching this shit again. But I’ll only watch it until Gary Busey, who announced that he’s in the cast while riding a horse and dressed like a cowboy, is kicked out, which will probably be the first week since America has never understood and appreciated real organic dance talent like this:
And Gary’s partner Anna Trebunskaya better pre-book her trip to rehab now, because she’s going to need to dry out from all the booze, Valium, Xanax, morphine and Tension Tamer tea she’ll have to take to deal with his ass.
