Braxton Family Values

Dancing with the Stars Val and Tamar

For part two of Hometown Glory week on Dancing with the Stars, the focus is on the pros. Val Chmerkovskiy and Tony Dovolani share their stories… but it’s still up to Tamar Braxton and Kim Zolciak to dance well and move forward in the competition.

Val considers his hometown New York City. “My parents dropped everything in Ukraine, their job, their friends, and came to New York City with nothing just so that their kids could become something,” shares Val. “Everything I have now is because of them.”

Once again, Val and Tamar butt heads in the rehearsal. When Val explains his vision for the dance, Tamar takes issue with him chasing her around shirtless. Wait, what? A shirtless Val is everything. #FansSelf #Shallow #DontCare I’m not here for Tamar making Val keep his shirt on.


Dancing with the Stars

It’s week two for Kim Zolciak and Tamar Braxton on Dancing with the Stars.

About last week’s abysmal start, Kim says, “It was all kind of a blur – the scores and what they [the judges] said. I am really disappointed in myself because I obviously can do much better. But I mean where can you go from here but up?”

Kim focuses on Atlanta for “Hometown Glory” week.

“I grew up in Connecticut,” explains Kim, “but I have been here in Atlanta for 16 years. Atlanta’s where Big Poppa all my dreams came true. I met my amazing husband here. And I have had five of my children – out of six – here in Atlanta.”

Does Kim dance better this week? Avoid elimination?


Dancing with the Stars premiere

A ballroom full of sequins, spandex, and semi stars… it must be Dancing with the Stars season! We’re watching and rooting for (for better or worse) two of our own, Braxton Family Values star Tamar Braxton (the better) and Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak (the worse).

When asked why she joined Dancing with the Stars, Tamar says, “After I had my baby, I kind of slowed down a bit and I just wanna put a pep in my step.” In rehearsal, Tamar and Val Chmerkovskiy are having fun together. Tamar says Val’s like an annoying little brother, adding, “Val and I are both outspoken <side eye>, but I’m happy to have the current champion as my partner.”

Tamar and Val dance the Quickstep to “Do Your Thing” by Basement Jaxx. The choreography is no joke – very courageous for week one – but Tamar nails it. So far, I think Tamar is the total package – spunky personality, good work ethic, and killer moves. Check out the video below.


Dancing with the Stars Season 21

ABC announced the Dancing with the Stars season 21 stars this morning on Good Morning America. Most of the cast had been revealed ahead of time, but there were a few surprises.

Much to our surprise, Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak isn’t the only reality TV star dancing for the mirror ball trophy this season. Braxton Family Values and Tamar & Vince star Tamar Braxton is competing against Kim.

As for the pro dancers, one of my favorite Dancing with the Stars pros, Anna Trebunskaya, is back. Unfortunately, she has been paired with Gary Busey. Why can’t I have nice things?!? Also disappointing, Peta Murgatroyd is out for the season due to an ankle injury. Peta was supposed to dance with “Honey I’m Good” singer Andy Grammer. He’ll dance with Allison Holker instead. Check out the complete list below and let us know if you plan to watch.

NeNe Leakes begins filming new ABC game show 'To Tell The Truth'

NeNe Leakes officially confirmed her official departure from Real Housewives Of Atlanta and she’s already started filming for her new gig on the ABC gameshow “To Tell The Truth.” In addition, NeNe is also keeping busy with other upcoming projects! “My hands are really full right now,” says the former Housewife. 

While NeNe admits to being nervous about the uncharted terrain (and no RHOA to come crawling back to), she’s excited for  her fans to see “something different that you guys have never seen me do before.” What – have manners?

“Fans will get to see me be really happy, witty and funny and tell all of those one-liners that I have said on [Housewives],” NeNe explains. And she’s definitely thrilled to be leaving the negativity of RHOA behind!  

Above, NeNe on set for ‘To Tell The Truth.’


Tamar Braxton Performing

Tamar Braxton has pulled a disappearing act! Running from the IRS? The reality star and talk show host was confirmed as a performer at the 45th Anniversary L.A. Pride bash but has stopped returning organizer’s calls. 

Days before she was scheduled to perform the Tamar & Vince star is missing in action. L.A. Pride Executive Producer Jeff Consoletti confirms that Tamar is refusing to return their calls and they’ve been forced to hire a last minute replacement for her act since the event is happening so soon!
