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.
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.
In our latest set of reality star sightings this week, Farrah Abraham lands in the UK, Curtis Stone shows off his wife, and Kim Kardashian shows more maternity fashions.
Farrah Abraham and Jenna Jameson have landed in England this week to start their stints on Celebrity Big Brother. Oh how we wish a U.S. network would air this!!
Tamar and Evelyn Braxton attended MegaFest together while Curtis Stone and his wife Lindsay Price cuddled up on the red carpet at the 5th Annual Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival.
Kim Kardashian stepped out in a Kanye-approved maternity look as she grabbed lunch with friends at La Scala. Meanwhile her former step-brother Brody Jenner was in Vegas, announcing his DJ residency at Bank.
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!
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!
In our new batch of reality star sightings today, we have still-going-strong couple Demetria McKinney and Roger Bobb, as well as a plethora of stars attending Pre-Grammy parties.
Demetria and Roger attended the NAACP Image Awards together on Friday night while Joanna Krupa hosted a party at 1OAK, giving us a whole lot of sideboob. Also spotted was Kyle Richards who hit up a dinner hotspot with husband Mauricio Umansky, who was then accidentally labeled in the photo set as Kyle’s first husband, Guraish Aldjufrie!
When a caller asked for Tamar‘s opinion on Kenya‘s music, she shared, “She sings? No shade! I think I heard [Gone with the Wind Fabulous] in the club one time. I didn’t know it was a serious record. No shade. Well, I can’t lie, she’s not my favorite. Something about the thirst of it all. She’s a pretty girl. It’s just, like, the pageant thing kind of reeks.” Tamar admitted that NeNe Leakes is her girl.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s social media accounts for a reaction. And Kenya delivered!
