Tamar Braxton first notified pop culture that she had a new television show in the works nearly a year ago. Now it looks like that declaration is finally manifesting itself.
The youngest and arguably the most popular Braxton, 42, is set to star in a new â€œbeautyâ€� television show for Vh1, according to The Jasmine Brand.
â€œI have a VH1 show coming up that got picked up for 20 episodes. Iâ€™m really excited about it. Itâ€™s kinda like a musical sort of. But itâ€™s really, really good and entertaining. Iâ€™ve always been into acting,â€� Braxton said, according to TJB. â€œI started off with Tyler Perry, a lot of people donâ€™t know that. I did Madea Goes to Jail. We had a great time. Ever since then Iâ€™ve had the acting bug. Then the reality show came and the music bug definitely never goes away.â€�
Braxton soared to fame a decade ago when the â€œBraxton Family Valuesâ€� first aired on WE TV. Her infamous histrionics and overdramatizations quickly catapulted her to the forefront, even supplanting her legendary eldest sister, Toni Braxton, as the familyâ€™s premiere personality.
Since then, Braxton has starred on â€œThe Real,â€� which ended unceremoniously in 2016 when she was terminated without explanation. She has also starred on â€œCelebrity Big Brotherâ€� where she won $25,000.
Braxton claims that contractural obligations prevented her from starring in other TV projects before now.
â€œA lot of people thought that after â€˜The Realâ€™ I wasnâ€™t able to get a job in television, but that was just simply not true,â€� Braxton told SoulBounce. â€œI was contractually obligated to not be on television, and it was really hard for me as a matter of fact.â€�
No other explanation nor details have been revealed about the new beauty show. Stay tuned.
