Tamar Braxton Tells Folks Who Say She Married Vince For Money To HAVE A SEAT, Talks Skin Bleaching & Business Moves

The breakout star of "Braxton Family Values" is talking it up this week as she continues promo for season 2 of the reality show.  Tamar Braxton is telling her haters to have a seat with those skin bleaching rumors and gold digging comments.  And she says the show has indeed created more sibling rivalry.

 

Check out excerpts BlackEnterprise.com's interview with the youngest Braxton chick inside....

Tamar's obviously our fave Braxton sister of the moment--well, we love us some Trina and Traci too--so we had to relay the message she told BlackEnterprise.com this week about all the rumors floating around about her and her fam, including her manager husband Vince.  She's also dishing on her post-reality show business moves.

BlackEnterprise.com: Do you think that the attention you’ve received has caused some sibling rivalry?

Braxton: At first I did, and it was very difficult for me because I would get accused of acting like a prima donna. But I’m like, if y’all think about it, I’ve been making the same faces since I was about 2 [years old]. I think the problem is when you see it on TV it’s magnified. I believe it was difficult for my sisters to watch it and they became defensive. But again, I’ve always been candid and honest. I believe everybody is back to normal and it was more of the surprise the first season.

BlackEnterprise.com: When you think of developing and expanding your brand, what’s your priority?

Braxton: The No. 1 priority is to complete my album and fulfill my dream. One of my other passions is talking to and empowering young women by teaching them about self-esteem, the importance of education and choosing a [career path] for their lives. I really enjoy doing things like that so right now speaking and empowering young women and helping them to be confident is something I’ve found I truly love and want to do more of in the future.

Tamar also told the haters to HAVE A SEAT with the gold digger rumors and she finds the comments about her teddy bear hubby Vince, who has recovered from his collapse, just disrespectful.  Same thing with the skin bleaching rumors:

BlackEnterprise.com: What is the craziest rumor you’ve heard about yourself?

Braxton: God, there are several, but the one that really bothers me is that I [married] my husband for money. What? Where did that come from? Are you saying that because he’s thick? How do you know I don’t like teddy bears? I mean, really? Have a seat. Do people realize that [those comments] are very disrespectful to my relationship and friendship with my husband? I find no humor in that. To have people [speculating] about why you like what you like. Don’t they think that could affect how he feels about himself or me? If we didn’t have that openness and friendship it could. I’m sure those comments hurt his feelings. Sometimes people wanna say, “With all that mouth Tamar has…” and I say to [all of them], have several seats because I’m gonna always stand up for myself, my husband and our relationship.

BlackEnterprise.com: Unlike other celebs who go under the knife it’s refreshing that you’ve always been candid about your belief in plastic surgery. In the blogosphere, there’s been much debate about whether you bleach your skin. Do you?

Braxton: Yes, I believe in plastic surgery because I believe you’re supposed to enhance what you are happy with. And if I bleached my skin then I wouldn’t have stretch marks, right? So boom! (Laughs).

Gotta love that Tamar.  Check out the full interview with Tamar over at BlackEnterprise.com.

"Braxton Family Values" Season 2 premieres this Thursday on WeTV

Tamar Braxton does lighten

Tamar Braxton does lighten her skin! She isn't lying when she says she doesn't "bleach" cause she uses another method to lighten her skin. Tanning salons offer a lightening treatment to light acne spots and stretch marks. Tamar uses that shit on her whole body. As far as I'm concerned, Tamar wants to be a white girl and that's what she's doing. You can look at photos of her from as far back as 1990 and see that her REAL skin color is much darker. She used to be the same color as Traci. Tamar is trifling and stupid as fuck.

Being a light skinned sista,

Being a light skinned sista, I find some of the comments offensive. It is NOT true that all Black women want to be light and no one wants to be dark....Nothing could be further from the truth. I wish I were dark. I have always admired dark skin. The darka the betta. Those especially with dark skin and beautiful skin has always been my wish. Whenever I read some of these posts I always see ppl trashing one another over an opinion. PPL Puhleez It's not that serious! PPl have the right to express their OPINIONS whether another agrees or not. Personally, the hate being thrown back and forth over these celebrities' personal lives when you don't even know them just cracks me up. No one cept Tamar and Vincent knows the ins and outs of their relationship. Vince is not skinny...yeah and so what? Does that mean that no one is supposed to love them? My hubby is about 40 lbs over his idea weight and I love the shyt out of him and I wouldn't have it any other way. Lord, ppl are so judgemental it is superdiculous.

I totally agree with you, ppl

I totally agree with you, ppl always worrying about the wrong thing. I like Tamar she is no different than a person you see on the street she just keep it real on tv thats all. I feel like she really love her husband and just because he is thick doesnt mean that she dnt love him and besides they were dating 7 years before they even got married so come on now. I just dnt understand why ppl say such things about ppl that they dnt know and i personally feel like if she didnt love him for him then i dnt think she would be talking about a baby with him ijs.

Vince is too much of a

Vince is too much of a gentleman for Tamar. She has a big ole mouth and wants to be the center of attention. The people who are criticizing Vince's looks should be ashamed. Any woman would be lucky to have Vince,especially Tamar. I'm sick of women who go for the 'bad boys' who treat them like thrash. Tamar had better recognize the fact that she has a good man.

Me personally I like Tamar.

Me personally I like Tamar. Maybe because they have a friendship is what keeping them together. She can be over the top but she's funny sw hell. I don't think she bleached her skin because what's the point of the tanning if she does. She admitted to having her nose done and from back in the day videos and pics she has always had full lips. She has her good days and bad days. Somedays I think ahe looks pretty. I mean whateva she married thar man for is her business. if it doesnt bother him than it shouldn't bother anybody else. I know ppl that learned to love they mates and been with them for many years. To each its own! And for the record I know a few ppl who bleaches their skin. One of them being a close cousin of mines. if she's not happy in the skin she's in and has the resources to change it to make her happy then so be it. U ppl are so judgmental!!!!!!!!!!!! Nowadays u can change anything u don't like about urself or would like to enhance. Wth! Shit I want a bigger ass. That's on my list of things to get done...lol

hey its her life her husband if she is with him for money and if he is gay they seems like they gettin what they want from eachother. As far as black women wanting to be white its not all, and the ones that do have a problem with being a black or a dark skin sista just need realize how beautiful you/we are and how many people spend money to get what we were born with. i am a light skinned woman and would love to be a few shades darker.... lets get it together, and enough with the judgments!

Tamar sweety in order to

Tamar sweety in order to teach young girls about self esteem you need to have a high one. Clearly you don't if you have to cut your whole face and basically have no nostrils, wear blonde azz tacky azz wigs, are loud, obnoxious & immature, & can't even maintain your own career. Ooooh chile, Toni included, these Braxtons and their wigs. 2nd, clearly, Tamar should enhance her eye sight bc Vince is NOT a teddy bear or THICK, that n*gga is OBESE. Anyone who would spread their legs or get on their knees for that is just as dirty, gross, disgusting and UNCLEAN. I bet neither of them can find his peen. If that is not low self esteem, to lay up with that, I do not know what is. 3rd, she did marry him for his money and status bc she wanted to be like Gaga & Beyonce as she kept saying each episode. Vince is a hater and mentally abuses her to think he is some hot stud bc if he really loved you we would not be saying Tamar who or What ever happened to Tamar Braxton? He would be promoting the hell out of you. 4th, Ima need for Tamar to get some actual real life friends bc it seems like Vince caged her up and threw away the key for her to be speed dialing the Skorpion Show and having them be her date to events that Vince can't make. Tamar needs psychological help bc she is quoting Makael and spending too much time on youtube. She was so desperate for friends she called them up and now has them on speed dial. LMAO. If Makael was smart he would copyright his phrases and quotes and sue that ho for using them. Then maybe then he can get a better looking cap.

Tamar is waayyy over the top, Vince is so calm and low key. But as they say, Love is blind, and they seem to be making it work and they've been together for awhile. Plus Toni introduced them right, so people think she set her manager up with her gold digging sister...I dont think thats the case. jmo

I don't know where you live but I see plenty of men with dark skin on their arms. Most dark women I know have flawless skin, I mean flawless, while a lot of light women I've seen have too many blemishes. Skin three and four different shades and they bleach their skin WAY MORE than dark skinned women because they want that flawless skin. Many dark skinned women love the skin they're in. Where do you get half the bullshit that comes out of your ignorant mouth. I'm sure you hang with like minded people so you can't help it but you can't use that excuse your entire life. Let me tell you a secret chile....real men will not tolerate an ignorant ass female for long so good luck with that.
