Tamar Braxton Talks Spin-Off, Kim Kardashian
Tamar Braxton is such the breakout star of We TV's most successful show, "Braxton Family Values," that the network has just green-lighted her own spin-off show. And with opinions on everything form the Carpathians to the Kardashians, it's easy to see why she's taking spot right up front.
"I like the Kardashians, but I do keep them on the top of my prayer list," Tamar told me when we sat down for a drink at the Gansevoort Park Hotel. "This week it's Kim [who's at the top of that list]. Poor little Kim. You can find love when you are famous if you are the same person you were before you were famous. I don't know Kim but I wish her the best."
Although Tamar may not know the secret to finding everlasting love, she does know the secret to a successful TV show.
"I was just being myself on the show with my family and it turned into something else," Tamar told me. "It was my idea to do the show. First of all, I love reality TV, but I haven't seen a family reality TV show -- besides the Kardashians -- that were females but they also have husbands and kids. You can kind of take those lives and apply them toward yours."
And what about the rumors of conflict when it comes to growing up in the shadow of a superstar sister?
"Toni and I are eleven and a half years apart so I looked at it like, okay, she did it so it's not impossible to do," Tamar tells me.
