Tamar Braxton-Herbert Reveals she Had a Recent Miscarriage on last episode of BFV

Tamar Braxton
On this week’s episode of WETV’s Braxton Family Values that aired this past Thursday, March 30, Tamar Braxton-Herbert revealed to her sisters that she suffered a miscarriage.

The episode was about the singer’s attempts to have a second child using IVF treatment. [Watch a clip about it here of Tamar discussing the challenges of IVF with her husband Vince Herbert.]

“You know, I didn’t tell nobody because it was very very new. Well, maybe, like, a week before I went to Atlanta, I found out that I was pregnant,” Tamar told her older sister, Toni Braxton, who erupted in excitement over the news. “Congratulations! You’re pregnant!”

But then Tamar added that she “was”  expecting a child to Toni’s shock. It’s a heart wrenching moment when she realizes that her sister lost her baby early in the pregnancy.

“I’m sorry, Tay,” Toni replies after realizing that her sister just told her she suffered a miscarriage. You can catch a teaser here:

Tamar Braxton-Herbert is Slaying DWTS, Red Carpets & Street Fashion (PHOTOS)

Our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Tamar Braxton-Herbert has been slaying weekly on Dancing With The Stars.  The Tamar & Vince reality TV star and her pro partner are given top marks regularly this competition.

This co-host of the panel talk show The Real most likely will be the winner if not a finalist by the time this season wraps.

I am certainly loving her costumes. This flapper look is actually trending given how fringe is back in style. Ha!



And before this original cast member of VH1‘s The Braxtons was rocking the dance floor, she was werking it in some pretty stylish outfits while out and about or on the red carpet.

   



I loved this wrap shirt dress she wore to the “A Time to Laugh” event in August. The darker hair favors her more than the blonde I think.

But I admit the blond waves were the perfect accompaniment to this smart bandage skirt suit she wore at SONY Music Post Grammy Celebration in LA this February.

I also thought when she styled it in a bob, she had a very smart look as here when dining with her husband Vince Herbert at Craig’s restaurant in May.

This pink sleeveless wrap dress was saucy and ooh showing side boob. This was also in February at LA Reid‘s Grammy party. Seen here with music  executive Sylvia Rhone.  
This pic is from last year while she and Vince dined at Mastro’s in Cali but I share today because it’s boots season and these boots are hawt!

Finally, she rocked the deep v cut on this satin blue flare skirt mini dress with gold pumps at the Ford Neighborhood Awards on August this year.

It’s giving me majorette/Pageant talent/dance champion flare. Maybe it’s a fore shadowing. Hmmmm!

Hawt! Haute! Hot!

Tamar Braxton and Tamera Mowry-Housley’s “The Real” returns September 15 ( VIDEO TRAILER)

Sadly, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Bethenny Frankel lost her FOX channel reality TV show when it didn’t get renewed for a second season.

But on an upside, our other alums Tamar Braxton Herbert and Tamera Mowry-Housley will debut a full season of their new talk show The Real on the same network this September 15.

The new moms and their co-hosts had a successful  short test run in limited and select markets this past summer 2013 (NY, Philly, LA, D.C Phoenix, Houston and Tampa) that was ratings gold. The show got picked up for a full season and will have a nationwide run starting late Summer.

Actress and Singer Adrienne Bailon (The Cheetah Girls),  comedian Loni Love and  TV host Jeannie Mai (How do I Look) round off the other ladies in the multicultural and younger answer to ABC  channel’s The View. 





According  to a press release announcing the premiere date:

These women are all going through varied life experiences, including new motherhood, new marriages, dating or singledom, that relate to every woman’s own trials and tribulations. Unlike other talk shows, each of the five hosts is admittedly a “work in progress” and fearlessly invites the home audience into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion will turn the traditional talk show on its head. 

Fun! Are you excited about the new show launching? Catch a promo reel hear:

Entrepreneur and Reality Tv star Khloe Kardashian threw a lavish neutral-colored bear themed baby shower for her BFF, actress and model Malika Haqq, over the weekend.

The event was held at the luxurious Waldorf Astoria hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss organized the luxe celebration.

The mom-to-be wore a muted strappy floor length fish tail, bump-hugging jersey dress with her hair pulled back in a sleek ponytail and subtle and soft makeup.

Guests included family and friends and fellow celebs like Kylie Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Tamar Braxton, Don’t Be Tardy’s Brielle Biermann and her mom Kim Zolciak-Biermann and others. Haqq’s twin sister Khadijah Haqq was also on hand.

Attendees were treated to goodies like sweet honey tea in adorable bear jars,petite pastries, a multi-tiered cake  and cereal because according to Khloe in an insta story video, Malika craved cereal for most of her pregnancy.

They also played typical baby shower games like the “can’t say ‘baby’” game, the guess Malika’s baby belly girth and the guess the baby’s delivery date and guess the number of cookies in the jar game.

They went home with cute favors like baby bottle shaped bottle openers.

Malika is expecting a baby boy, the first child with her on-again-off-again boyfriend, rapper O.T. Genasis.

“A BEARy beautiful Baby Shower!!” Khloe captioned a series of photos of the event. “I have been planning Malika’s baby shower in my head for quite some time. Malika was very specific with not wanting color. So this was the only color we were able to get away with LOL It turned out beautifully!”

Everyone wore brown, white and other muted and neutral colors to the event to accommodate Malika’s request.

“I could not thank @mindyweiss @andrew_mindyweiss @jeffleatham enough!!” Khloe added thanking the event planning staff. “I know I’m a lot at times because I’m so specific and I love to micro manage but you guys always go over the top. You surpass any dream that I have ever conjured up in my head as to how I want something to look. Every time I am WOWED by your work and perfection! Thank you guys for being the best! You literally are my dream team! Thank to everyone who helped put this spectacular shower together!”

Here are some videos and photos of the fun event that the  host, guests and vendors posted on their respective social media pages



 

Halloween 2018: Superheroes Were Celeb Families’ Top Choice

Here are some additional amazing celebrity family Halloween costumes from this year that rocked! And one thing I’ve noticed while pulling this together using their respective Instagram photo shares is that the Super Heroes theme was the preferred costume.

On top of that list, about 4 families did the Incredibles this years. In years past, Mariah Carey and The Baldwins among other families had gone with that group costume option. Here is a quick run down of other fabulous costumes including some amazing over-the top ones that are not super heroes but are from popular movies and other pop culture figures.

Adrienne and Chris Bosh and family as The Incredibles

Fergie and her son Axl were are super heroes Power Rangers

Kevin Hart and family as Minions

Wonder Woman Tamar Braxton and her son Logan as Batman

Kandi Burruss and family also as Super heroes

Vanessa Lachey and her kids were also The Incredibles.

 

Singer Melanie Fiona and her family were also The Incredibles

And finally so was Cyn Santanna and fam

Monica Brown and her family are usually on the top 5 list when it comes to Halloween costumes and so to no surprise her daughter Laiyah Brown‘s Edward Scissorhands is amazing@

 

No doubt Ayesha Curry as Snow White and her 4-month old son Canon as a Dwarf were the cutest!

Not a family costume but here is Marcus Scribner as Erik Killmonger, Tracee Ellis Ross as Nakia, and Anthony Anderson as T’Challa from Black Panther

 

More Superheroes from Tia Mowry, Cory Hardrict and family

Her sister Tamera Mowry-Housley and her daughter were lady bugs with husband Adam Housley as a cave man and their son Aden a dinosaur.

Gisele Bundchen and her daughter were unicorns.

As was Jessica Alba and her daughter while her hubby Cash Warren and their other kids were giraffes.

Toya Wright was Cruella DeVille and her daughter a dalmatian

Lisa Ling and her daughter Jett were mermaids

Ray J and wife Princess Love and their daughter were Holy figures, a priest, Nun and angel.

Hoda Kotb and her daughter were bumble bees.

2017 BET Awards Trends: 90s Comebacks, Africa, Platinum Blonde and Babies

collage-picmonkey-s-photo-editor-free-online-image-editing

The 2017 BET Awards went down at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. I confess that I only got a chance to catch the end as I was heading to the beach to celebrate my eldest kid’s birthday and didn’t settle in to our suite until the show was well into its fourth and final hour! But I must say, that I thorougly enjoyed the singing chops of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Tamar Braxton who did an excellent job performing her new song, “My Man” on stage.

Tameka Tiny Cottles Harris, LaTocha and Tamika Scott and Kandi Burruss of 1990s girl group Xscape reuniting soon for a tour

Sadly, I missed a couple of our other bumpwatch alums, Kandi Buruss and Tameka “Tiny” Harris perform with their 1990s R&B girl group, Xscape

img_7715

The duo joined fellow members LaTocha Scott and Tamika Scott in a medley of their hits on stage since breaking up as a group 18 years ago. It was the first of two explosive 90s R&B performances. The New Edition tribute and performances later blew me away!

img_7722

Xscape will document their work as they prepare to perform at the 2017 Essence Festival. The docuseries, titled Xscape: Still Kickin’ It, premieres this fall on Bravo.

WATCH:

I noticed some fashion and hair trends beginning with the blunt platinum bob LaTocha Scott and Braxton wore. Singer-Actress Kat Graham who plays Jada Pinkett-Smith in the new movie All Eyez on Me, rapper and star of Love & Hip Hop: New York Cardi B and our other bumpwatch alum Blac Chyna  all did the blunt blonde bob.

And platinum blonde, in general,  had a big showing  on Tiny’s daughter Zonnique, who is also a recording-artist. She wore her hair in that shade as did Lateysha Grace, a German transplant who has been on three seasons of MTV show The Valleys.

Clockwise: Lateysha Grace, Zonnique, Cardi B and Blac Chyna in platinum blonde hair.

It was also cool to see so many parents bring their children to the show. DJ Khaled actually brought his son Asahad on stage with him during his performance. It reminded me of all the NBA babies at their dads’ games.

Jamie Foxx had his daughter Annalise help him present on stage and Future got his daughter Londyn a matching bedazzled mask to wear in honor of his popular new single “Mask Off” which he later performed that night with a cameo from Kenderick Lamar. Another big winner was Chance the Rapper whose mom accompanied him to the show.

Speaking of Winners. Beyonce was a BIG winner taking home the most awards for Best Female R&B Performer, Viewers’ Choice, Video of the Year for her song “Sorry” (which tied with Bruno Mars) and is off her album Lemonade, which one for Album of the Year.  The director for “Sorry” won the for Best Director.

Her sister Solange  took home the Centric Award for her song “Cranes in the Sky” which also earned the star her first Grammy award earlier in the year.  Besides Solange, we spotted a few of our other Bumpwatch alums at the event including Keyshia Cole.

Speaking of Blac Chyna and Amber Rose. The two of them once famously attended back to back awards shows in 2015 hand in hand but last night came with other people, Chyna with other people.

We frequently spotlight what mom LaLa Anthony wears on arrival carpets and she did not disappoint.

Not a mom, but I love Yvette Nicole Brown‘s look and my African sister Issa Rae from her hit HBO Insecure.

I also want to shout out other aspects of Africa represented last night in the strapless Ankara  (West African) dresses worn by beauty blogger Jennie Jenkins and The Color Purple veteran actress  Margaret Avery and actress Nomzamo Mbatha‘s South African print trimmed dress and in South Sudanese model Duckie Thot, Sudanse vlogger Nikki Perkins and Afro German soap opera actress  Sandra Lambeck.

This Reality TV show alum turned Lifestyle Mogul is the Latest Expecting Laguna Beach Alum

laruen-conrad

Lauren Conrad is the latest of alums from the MTV reality TV shows Laguna Beach and The Hills to have announce a pregnancy.

The author, blogger and lifestyle maven shared the news on Instagram that she and her husband William Tell are expecting their first child together.

“Happy New Year! I have a feeling 2017 is going to be the best year yet…” she captioned a photo of her sonogram and of course, it was quite dreamy and perfect and quite on brand with her Instagram page with 5.5M followers.

 

Happy New Year! I have a feeling 2017 is going to be the best year yet…

Audrina Patridge welcomed her first child, daughter, Kirra Max, early in 2016 and Kristin Cavallari is well ahead of all of them, having given birth to her third child, daughter Saylor James in 2015.  She gave birth to her first child, son Camden, in August 2012 and second, Jaxon in May 2014;

Laguna Beach alum Alex Murrel gave birth to a son last July with her spouse and a month later another alum of that show about “the Real Orange County”,  named after the hit show The OC ‘s fictionalized portrayal of the posh coastal region, gave birth. Casey Reindhardt and her husband welcomed their first child, a daughter they named Kensington. Christina Schuller (nee Sinclair) welcomed her first child, son Christian Sutton, in 2014. This past September 2016,  Morgan Smith (nee Olson) welcomed her second child with her husband,  daughter, after giving birth to son Theo in 2014.

One interesting thing I noted of all these births is that they all (minus Cavallari’s first) were with their husbands, not fiances or boyfriends. Says something about how they stick to tradition.

I’ve always admired Conrad for being one of the few people to successfully parlay a reality TV show beginning into a mini empire.

She  has written a successful series of young-adult novels and oversees her successful fashion line she co-founded Paper Crown and her popular Kohl’s line, LC by Lauren Conrad.

Our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums who have done the same include Kim Kardashian West, the ultimate media and lifestyle mogul. Tamar Braxton Herbert and Evelyn Lozada have successfully leveraged their fame from reality TV to lucrative subsequent gigs, careers and other ventures. They’re not limited to marketing their online social media presence via sponsored posts or by selling digital products either, a lot of reality TV alums are doing well selling products and partnering with brick and mortar realtors! Good stuff!

#PhilandoCastile and #AltonSterling: Celeb Moms Who’ve Spoken Out About Killings

candles

Tonight, we’ve reached a tipping point in America as several Dallas police officers were killed during a rally to protest recent police shootings. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of those men and women who put their lives at risk daily to protect and serve.

Here is a rundown of what sparked the rally followed by solidarity messages from celeb women we’ve featured on the blog:

Within 48 hours, two black men in “concealed weapon license to carry” states exercising their rights to have guns in their pockets were nonetheless shot and killed by police officers. Both killings, one execution style and the other in front of a 4-year old child during a routine traffic stop, has sparked outrage.

Alton Sterling was selling CDs outside of a grocery store in a high crime neighborhood and exercising his Second Amendment rights as an American, carried a weapon to protect himself. Someone reported to the police that Sterling had it out waving at people and after scuffle with the officers who arrived at the scene and eventually took Sterling down, another took out his revolver and emptied a couple of rounds into Sterling’s body before falling off the man’s chest and shooting a few more shots. The store owner and another eyewitness filmed the shootings on their smartphones and circulated it on social media. The outrage has been swift.

That same night, another man, Philando Castile, was driving with his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds and her 4-year old daughter in the backseat when he was pulled over for a busted tail light. Diamond turned on her Facebook Live and shared the incident as it happened with her followers on the social media site. The world was witness to the moments immediately after one officer shot him as he reached into his pocket to pull out his driver’s license as asked to do so by the officer, per Reynold’s account. The officer can be overheard on the video saying “ignorance”.

As with other past police killings of unarmed black men and boys, many parents have been shaken by the incident especially parents of young black boys. In social media, many have expressed fear that when their children grow up, they will be seen as menacing threats simply for being in the skin they were born in and could be the next hashtag.

I know personally, I’ve talked to my kids again as my husband and I do periodically throughout their lives to make sure they are aware what they need to do to escape a possible police encounter alive. My father in law is a retired veteran police detective and my husband’s uncle was a police officer. We fear for the lives of blue and believe Blue Lives Matter as well, but at the same time, we are frightened by the pattern of brutality among some officers.
