Tamar Braxton Is No Longer Following Her Sisters or Mom on Instagram After Accusing Them of Exploiting Her Pain

The estrangement between Tamar Braxton and her famous family is intensifying. Tamar is upset with her family after seeing a new teaser for the upcoming season of Braxton Family Values that mentions her attempted suicide. As a result, the Love & War singer is no longer following her family on Instagram.

Tamar Braxton blasts We TV and her family for speaking of her attempted suicide on upcoming season of ‘Braxton Family Values’

We TV released a new teaser for Braxton Family Values on Oct. 21. The teaser features Toni receiving a phone call regarding Tamar’s hospitalization due to Tamar’s attempted suicide. A panicked Toni then informs her mother of Tamar’s condition.

Towanda and Trina speak of their initial reaction to hearing the news about Tamar. Trina says she became numb, while Towanda says the news is unbelievable. Toni also says the whole ordeal is like a nightmare for her family.

Taking to Instagram after seeing the teaser, Tamar is blasting her family and former network. She is no longer in a contract with We TV. Tamar accuses the network of ruining her family’s bond by manipulating drama for the show.

“After waking up to that disgusting trailer…F*CK @wetv and whomever else participating for using my pain for their pleasure and ratings,” Tamar writes.

She also elaborated in a Twitter post, saying the scenes featured in the new teaser were recreated months after the show stopped filming. 

Tamar Braxton unfollows her sisters and mom on Instagram

Madame Noire reports that Tamar is no longer following her four sisters nor her mother on Instagram amid the release of the new teaser. Both Tamar and Traci were already not following one another due to their blowup that occurred during the season 6 finale. 

Tamar has also been upset with her family over them speaking negatively about her ex, David Adefeso. She says despite their bitter break up and impending legal issues, Adefeso was a good partner during their relationship. She is also asking for her family to cease speaking publicly and allow her to address her issues personally.

This isn’t the first time Tamar has had social media beef with her family. She previously stopped speaking to her mother and sisters for alleging that her ex-husband, Vincent Herbert, was physically abusive during their marriage. Tamar says her family did not tell the whole truth, admitting she felt blindsided by her family’s outspokenness. 

A tearful Ms. Evelyn was filmed heartbroken over Tamar changing her number and being unable to contact her youngest child. Tamar also ignored Traci by driving off of a film set that Traci was visiting in an attempt to reconnect with Tamar.

Tamar will be appearing on an upcoming episode of The Tamron Hall Show to tell her side of the story regarding her attempted suicide, break up with Adefeso, and her issues with We TV and her family. The episode will air on Wednesday, Oct. 28. Viewers are encouraged to check their local listings for air times.

Season 7 of Braxton Family Values begins airing on Nov. 5 at 9 pm EST on We TV.

'Double Shot at Love': Fans Hate the Idea of a Spinoff Featuring These Roommates

Now that Double Shot at Love Season 2 is over, fans wonder about the possibility of another season or a spinoff show with some of the same cast. While many fans are hopeful for a Jersey Shore spinoff, other fans don’t want to see these two Double Shot at Love ladies again any time soon. 

The cast of ‘Double Shot at Love’ might be part of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ 

Double Shot at Love‘s sophomore season had less to do with Pauly DelVecchio and Vinny Guadagnino dating. Instead, it was about a group of outgoing roommates living and working in Las Vegas. As such, many fans felt like they were watching a reboot of Jersey Shore

When showrunners brought in some of the Jersey Shore roommates as guests on Double Shot at Love, most fans decided they wouldn’t mind a spinoff series if it were to happen. Antonio Locke, better known as “Pool Party Papi,” teased the idea of a potential spinoff during an interview with A Tale of Two Sams Podcast in July 2020. 

“They’re trying to give us maybe like a Jersey Shore spinoff,” Locke said. “They want all new faces, which we appreciate and love… When I see comments on pictures like ‘Jersey Shore 2.0,’ I’m like ‘That’s what we’re going for!’”

A spinoff series has yet to be confirmed. But, considering her relationship status, it seems like Nikki Hall will be part of the next season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

Derynn Paige and Nikki Hall are definitely not friends

After part 2 of the Double Shot at Love reunion special, Paige shared a tweet regarding a spinoff series starring her saying, “Thank you, I’d watch that.” 

In replies to her tweet, Paige received a lot of hate in since-deleted comments from her roommates Hall and Maria Elizondo. “No one would watch that,” Elizondo said. “Don’t pitch it.”

Hall followed with a reply reading: “I can’t stand you.” 

Despite the comments from Elizondo and Hall, fans supported the idea of a Paige-focused spinoff show. One fan even suggested the idea of a series starring Paige and Brittani “B-Lashes” Schwartz. 

Most ‘Double Shot at Love’ fans don’t want a spinoff starring Derynn Paige and B-Lashes 

There are some Double Shot at Love fans out there who would watch a series centered on Paige and Schwartz. But when the Paige retweeted about the idea, more fans felt comfortable speaking out about their disdain for the duo. 

“Derryn has a bad personality,” one fan wrote on Reddit regarding the idea. “B-Lashes has never even spoken to a guy romantically in 2 seasons. Why the F would they make a good dating show.”

Other fans agreed, including one who said: “Hell no I would never watch their show lol. I’m surprised people even like them.”

Instead, fans would rather see a dating show involving Elizondo. “Hard pass,” another fan said. “A dating show with Maria, however would bring in the ratings, I feel like. It could be the precursor to likable [Are You the One?] contestants getting a new shot at love.”

It’s unclear if MTV will pursue a dating show involving any of the women from Double Shot at Love. But fans have their demands.

Practically Every Celeb Uses This World-Famous Micellar Water — and It's on Major Sale

Amazon Prime Day Bioderma Micellar Water Sale

Micellar water has received a lot of buzz in the beauty world thanks to its gentle yet effective cleaning powers, but it’s actually been many a French woman’s skincare staple since the ‘90s. The game-changing cleanser came to fruition as a solution to France’s harsh tap water, and it’s quickly become a multi-tasking beauty buy that’s a less harsh and less drying alternative to regular ol’ H2O and even makeup remover wipes.

There are a lot of well-praised micellar waters on the market, but few are as loved as Bioderma’s Micellar Cleansing Water. With a celebrity fan base that counts practically every A-lister imaginable, including Lucy Hale, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Drew Barrymore, Natalie Portman, and Khloe Kardashian, and mind-blowing sales stats that suggest one bottle is sold every two seconds, this French pharmacy favorite has rightfully earned its “world famous” title. And right now, it’s on sale during Amazon Prime Day for just $10, the lowest it’s been since December 2019, according to Keepa’s price tracker.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water

Shop now: $10 (Originally $15);

The popular micellar water is incredibly gentle on the epidermis, as it’s free of harsh oils, parabens, and alcohol that can mess with the skin’s natural pH, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less effective than other facial cleansers. In fact, Biorderma’s cleansing water promises to remove 99 percent of makeup and 98 percent of fine airborne pollutants that most average face washes and wipes miss. It effectively removes all impurities while still respecting the skin’s biological balance, and unlike some makeup remover wipes, micellar water, when applied on a soft cotton pad, requires significantly less rubbing, which means less irritation. 

Bioderma’s micellar water has consistently been an Amazon best-seller, averaging a 4.7-star rating and close to 10,000 five-star reviews, with plenty of customers deeming it their “holy grail” skincare product. “The best micellar water, never looking back,” wrote one shopper. “Removes waterproof mascara and foundation quickly and easily without scrubbing… The formula is so gentle, it just feels like water and the scent is very, very mild. Did not irritate my very sensitive skin.”

Another wore, “My holy grail micellar water! Effortlessly removes my makeup and formula deep cleans. Only kind I’ve ever tried that doesn’t break me out and actually improves the look of my skin.” 

Whether you’re a die-hard Bioderma fan looking to stock up or have yet to try out this world-famous micellar water, now’s the absolute best time to buy it.

I'm A Celeb fever hits tiny Welsh town where show will film – with Ant and Dec plastered in every window

I'M A Celeb fever has hit a tiny Welsh town where the show will film – with Ant and Dec plastered in every window.

Locals, who are preparing to welcome a string of celebrities to the area, have decorated the high street with endless pictures of I'm A Celeb hosts Ant and Dec.

Shop owners in Abergele's high street in North Wales have gone all out to welcome the show by hanging I'm A Celeb memorabilia in shop windows, while a local artist even splashed a huge murial on the side of a building in a funny tribute.

Abergele's post office, beauty salon, pub and estate all paid homage to the I'm A Celeb after it was announced it will film in Wales for the first time ever.

Ant was seen whizzing down a zip line in one hilarious tribute as he grabbed hold of a gold star in a nod to the show's Bush Tucker trials.

And in a spooky nod to the celebs' new camp Gwrych Castle – which is said to be haunted – his and Dec's faces had been glued onto huge skeletons in a shop's Halloween window display.

The locals welcomed the show after the production crew landed in North Wales last month.

The presenters recently filmed the I'm A Celeb trailer in the area, showing the Geordie duo arriving in Wales.

However, the cheeky pair appeared to have missed the memo that they wouldn't be shooting in Australia for the first time in the show's history – and still believed they were Down Under.

In the video, cheery Ant McPartlin steps out of a cab into the Welsh countryside, exclaiming: "G'day Australia, ah it's great to be back."

He then unceremoniously steps in some cowpat, joking: "I would hate to see the kangaroo who left that!"

Meanwhile, Declan Donnelly believes he has slept through the 24 hour flight, pulling an eye mask from his face as he gasps: "Wow that was quick – I must have slept through the whole flight!"

They pay the cabbie in dingo dollars before being left confused by the sheep and general area – which looks nothing like their map of Australia.

The promo was filmed on location in Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, Wales and ends with the pair walking in the opposite direction to a signpost that directs them to the castle.

To add even more authenticity to the advert, a Welsh voiceover then teases that the series will be returning to our screens soon, with it set to launch in November.

The show is due to to start filming at Gwrych Castle in Conwy next month after ITV bosses splashed out more than £1million to hire the building for six weeks as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic ruled out the show's usual setting in the Australian jungle.

It is yet to be revealed which celebs will be appearing in the show, but Vernon Kay, AJ Pritchard, and Tamzin Outhwaite have all been linked.

Meanwhile, Ant and Dec filmed themselves being tested for coronavirus as they explained that they don't have to social distance while working together as they are checked for the deadly disease every four days.

The pair are in a bubble with each other's households, which helps them with presenting duties including the upcoming I'm A Celeb.

Star Wars: Most frustrating Rise of Skywalker mystery EXPLAINED in new book

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

It might be said that the biggest mystery of the final Star Wars trilogy was why on Earth (or Tatooine) would Lucasfilm decide to allow three separate directors to do whatever they wanted with little apparent regard for a continuous, consistent storyline. The dismissal of Episode 9 director Colin Trevorrow brought back Episode 7’s JJ Abrams. Except he was rather busy undoing much of Rian Johnson’s eighth entry which had, in turn, undone much of Johnson’s Force Awakens. Enough to try even Yoda’s patience it is.

One of the most frustrating plotlines (among others) was the endless tease over Rey’s heritage. That particular reveal wasn’t even agreed upon by the various directors and producers. 

The final revelation that she was Palpatine’s granddaughter was not Abrams’ original intention and certainly not part of Johnson’s plan to demystify the main Jedi bloodlines and introduce a new, more democratic spread of force powers.

But another major mystery set up in Episode 7 was abruptly dropped in The Last Jedi and then teased again in The Rise of Skywalker.

What the Force was going on with Snoke?

The Supreme Leader was one of the most intriguing and powerful characters in the entire Star Wars galaxy far, far away.

Endless theories soon emerged about his origins suggesting he was an ex-galactic senator, was from the Outer Rim, was secretly Darth Plagueis or even Palpatine himself.

The latter seemed far-fetched since the former Emperor was clearly and utterly conclusively dead.

Until he wasn’t.

That still still left the mystery of Snoke, until most eagle-eyed fans spotted grisly tanks containing what looked like Snoke bodies in Palpatine’s lair on Exegol.

Suddenly, theories that Snoke was some kind of clone reignited.

A new Dorling Kindersley Star Wars guide, The Star Wars Book, written by Pablo Hidalgo says:  “It is possible that Snoke himself does not know his true identity. 

“Snoke is a strandcast – an artificial genetic construct concocted by the resurrected Darth Sidious to be his proxy in power. Snoke has free will, but his action and goals are orchestrated by Sidious…

“Through Snoke, Sidious sidesteps the tradition of a Dark Side apprentice slaying his amster to ascend.”

This tradition repeats when Ren kills Snoke but he soon realises something is amiss when the mysterious sinister voice which has guided him all his life does not disappear.

It was Palpatine all along who was manipulating Ben Solo/Kyloi Ren.

The new book finally confirms that the body parts on Exegol are “Snoke bodies resting in nutrient fluid.”

Best Batman EVER chosen by comic book legend and it’s the LAST person you’d expect

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Moore is the creator of iconic comic books like The Watchmen, V For Vendetta and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. He also wrote the hugely influential Batman: The Killing Joke graphic novel. Its depiction of the Joker as a tragic antihero rebooted the character and lead to films like the recent Joaquin Phoenix Joker. Moore just launched a scathing attack on superhero movies and revealed his own favourite Batman actor.

The big screen is about to see at least two different Batman universes, with Robert Pattinson’s upcoming reboot co-existing with Ben Affleck’s ongoing Justice League storylines.

The Pattisnon alternate dimension could also incorporate multiple incarnations, with Michael Keaton and Christian Bale touted to return. No word yet on the much-maligned Val Kilmer or George Clooney versions, but Moore himself is unimpressed with all the modern DC and Marvel movies.

In a new interview to promote his new film The Show, the author lashed out: “Most people equate comics with superhero movies now. That adds another layer of difficulty for me…

“They have blighted cinema, and also blighted culture to a degree.”

Moore added: “Several years ago I said I thought it was a really worrying sign, that hundreds of thousands of adults were queuing up to see characters that were created 50 years ago to entertain 12-year-old boys.

“That seemed to speak to some kind of longing to escape from the complexities of the modern world, and go back to a nostalgic, remembered childhood.

“That seemed dangerous, it was infantilizing the population.”

The author has famously dismissed big screen adaptations of his own work and has little time for other comic book adaptations either.

Moore told Deadline: “I haven’t seen a superhero movie since the first Tim Burton Batman film…

“I don’t watch any of them. All of these characters have been stolen from their original creators, all of them. They have a long line of ghosts standing behind them.

“In the case of Marvel films, Jack Kirby [the Marvel artist and writer]. I have no interest in superheroes, they were a thing that was invented in the late 1930s for children, and they are perfectly good as children’s entertainment. But if you try to make them for the adult world then I think it becomes kind of grotesque.”

However , he is clearly aware of all the other Batman actors and the prevailing trends and influenecs on curremst superhero adaptations.

Within the discussion, he chose who he thinks in the truest Batman actor to the original character’s creation

Moore said: “I’ve been told the Joker film wouldn’t exist without my Joker story (1988’s Batman: The Killing Joke), but three months after I’d written that I was disowning it, it was far too violent – it was Batman for christ’s sake, it’s a guy dressed as a bat.

“Increasingly I think the best version of Batman was Adam West, which didn’t take it at all seriously.”

Mindy Kaling Joins a Growing List of Celebrities Who Have Surprised Fans with Birth Announcements

Social media has made it easier for fans to connect with their favorite celebrities in recent years. While many celebrities have embraced Instagram and other social media networks, a few have decided to take a step back and keep some aspects of their lives private. In the last few years, several public figures have opted to keep their pregnancies a secret, only announcing their children’s birth after they arrived. Mindy Kaling is the most recent celebrity to shock fans with a birth announcement.

Mindy Kaling announced the birth of her second child on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert     

Kaling shocked her fans when she casually mentioned she had given birth to her second child last month. She shared the big news on the Oct. 8 episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. According to CNN, Kaling claimed she didn’t go out of her way to publicize the pregnancy because of everything going on in the world.

Kaling told Colbert that the baby boy, who she named Spencer, arrived on Sept. 3. He joins his big sister, Katherine. Katherine was born in December 2017. Kaling has opted not to reveal the identity of either child’s father.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel also welcomed a child in secret

Jessica Biel has chosen to keep an increasingly low profile since welcoming her first son, Silas, in 2015. Reportedly, she’s keeping such a low profile that she gave birth to her second child with Justin Timberlake with anyone knowing.

In July 2020, rumors began to swirl that Biel and Timberlake had welcomed a second child. Neither commented on the news and have remained tight-lipped since. The only confirmation that the pair actually had a second child came from Lance Bass, Timberlake’s former bandmate. In September 2020, Bass sat down with Entertainment Tonight and revealed that the couple welcomed another son. He declined to share the baby’s name, though. Biel and Timberlake still haven’t confirmed the birth of the child.

Blake Lively, Amanda Seyfried, Mara Rooney, and Iggy Azalea all opted to keep their pregnancies quiet

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds decided to keep their third pregnancy a secret, too. Lively and Reynolds were so coy about the entire thing that they only casually mentioned their third child’s arrival several weeks after it happened. It took months for the baby’s name to be revealed, and according to the National, Taylor Swift made the big announcement for the couple. Their third daughter, Betty, was born in October 2019. Her name was not revealed until July 2020.

Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski shocked fans in September 2020 when they casually mentioned their second child’s birth on Instagram. Mara Rooney and Iggy Azalea did the same. Azalea revealed that she had become a mother on Instagram in June 2020. Rooney and Joaquin Phoenix reportedly welcomed their first child in September 2020. The pair never confirmed rumors that Rooney was pregnant and have yet to officially announced their child’s birth.

Julie Andrews 85: The secret nightmare behind the most iconic Sound of Music scene

Back in 1964 a young British actress was standing high on a high. There were no lonely goathaerds in sight but she was battling something far more difficult and dangerous. It’s hard to believe Dame Julie Andrews in 85 today. The star remains as elegant and composed now as she was all those decades ago – but appearances can be very deceiving.

During an intervie with US chat show host Jimmy Kimmel, Dame Julie revealed the traumas of shooting the iconic opening scene to the movie where the young nun runs to the top of an Alpine hill and bursts into song.

Andrews had the audience in stitches as she recalled everything that went wrong.

She started with the least of her problems: “We were out there for ages because the weather was not kind to us. Someone forgot to mention that Austria has the world’s seventh highest rain fall. We shot with rain because you don’t see it that much on camera, it has to be an absolute downfall.”


Dame Julie continued to set the scene: “These huge speakers are in the trees because you are lip-syncing, belting out music. And a full orchestra, I don’t even know where they came from?”

But that was all nothing compared to a giant machine flying directly at here.

The actress added: “The monstrous helicopter had this cameraman very bravely strapped on the side where the door would be. 

“It started at one end of the field and I started at the other and this thing came at me like a giant crab…”

The helicpter was required to take the spectacular aerial shots which zoomed up over the hill and circled around young Maria as she sung her heart out.

It all looks absolutely beautiful on the screen.

The reality was very different and Dame Julie relished the opportunity to paint a picture very different from her usual serene and sophisticated self as she described the unfortunate side-effect of the helicopter’s huge propellers.

Every time you watch that scene again, just remember what really happened at the end of each take…

Dame Julie described the hilarious scene: “Every time the helicopter went around me, the downdraft from the jet engines just flung me into the grass.

“We did this six or seven times. I was spitting dirt and hay and things like that.

“I was like, “Couldn’t you take a WIDER circle?’ All I got was, “That’s fine, we’re doing another take.'”
