Listen here Tamar Braxton, whatever the hell it is you are selling, I’m not buying. There is no secret that Tamar Braxton looks completely
lighter different now than she did in her younger days. Over time, Tamar has gone from looking like a honey brown young thing to a pasty white woman. Bae-Bae, the pancake batter that she smears on her face must be low-fat because it is light as hell. Not to mention, she keeps her cheeks rouged like a circus clown. Chile I swear at times she looks like that thing from the movie saw. Anyway, in a recent interview, miss thing tried to let it be known that she does not bleach her skin, that she suffers from Vitiligo, the same skin disease that plagued Michael Jackson.
In a recent interview with Bossip, when confronted with rumors about skin bleaching and plastic surgery, Tamar had this to say:
“I just want to know what time do I have to do that,” she told the site. “If you really think about it, we’ve been shooting ‘Braxton Family Values’ for two years and then in between that it was ‘Tamar & Vince,’ and now we’re back into production with ‘Braxton Family Values.’ So when did she change her face? I just think I grew up and I don’t look the same that I did when I was 19. I don’t think any of us do.”
girlfriend husband Vince came to his judy’s wife’s defense not only saying she is beautiful as is, but also providing a bit more of an explanation as to why her skin has caught people’s attention.
“Actually, Tamar has the same thing that Michael Jackson had.”
Braxton clarified her husband’s statement, saying she has vitiligo, but quickly changed the subject. Chile cheese. This right here is public relations at its finest.
So here is why I am not buying it:
#1- Michael Jackson purposely wore long sleeves and jackets ALL THE TIME to hide skin discolorations and blotches on his arms. Uhmm Miss Tamar, is your Vitiligo genetically designed to only affect your face? I ask because you stay in a mini dress with all your skin exposed…
#2 Sometimes your makeup is a decent shade of brown, other days you are painted like Marry Poppins. Do you have Vitiligo outbreaks the same way someone with chronic acne has outbreaks? Would this explain why somedays you’re black and others you are white? I know Michael said “it don’t matter if you’re black or white”, but damn mama, can you just choose one and stick with it.
#3 Your sisters have talked about all kinds of embarrassing and painful life occurrences on the show, yet the most we have ever gotten from you is this manufactured story about you trying to have a baby and freezing eggs. Clearly suffering with Vitiligo is far less awkward then Trina’s husband screwing around on her on television, or Towanda’s free loading a** husband sucking up all
Toni’s her money.
#4 I just don’t believe you. Something about you just says you subscribe to wanting to be a beat white woman. If you do, that is totally fine. As you would say, “get yo life”. Just own it, or don’t address it, but do not try to goup the children.
So many Black women kill me, wanting to rep and go so hard for Black identity but Worship white features. I’m from Miami, and you see so many women, particularly Jamaica and Hatian ones, walking around smearing Topiclear, Ambi, and other products laced with hydroquonine on their faces, and now they look like they are glowing. Then their dumb asses completely neglect their neck and are looking like they are wearing a permanent turtle neck. Cut it out. Love the skin you’re in.
If Tamar indeed suffers with Vitiligo, then I apologize for all I have said and I will have to eat my words. However, The Doll just is not buying it. I’m sorry. It’s gone take more then her word to satisfy my curiosity. I need some receipts, and preferably not the ones for the bleaching cream. Thanks!
