Exclusive: How The Braxton Family Is Helping Tamar Through Split From Vincent Herbert



Tamar Braxton’s family is being a strong support system for the singer as she goes through a troubling time in her marriage.

Just one week ago, it was reported that the “Love & War” singer and her husband of nine years, Vincent Herbert, were calling off their marriage.

Despite the troubling reports, Braxton performed during Sunday night’s 2017 Soul Train Awards and left her heart on the stage. “As an artist you have to take that and you have to support your performance,” her sister, Trina, told HipHollywood on the red carpet. “You have to let all that other stuff go.”

Trina further admitted that “we’re spending a lot more time together. It’s sometime good, sometimes not so good. It’s been not so good lately.”

HipHollywood also caught up with Braxton’s mother, Evelyn, who unveiled that prayer is how she has been supporting her youngest daughter. “It’s all I know to do,” she told us. “If anything else, let me know.”

It was a huge night for the famous family — not only did Tamar perform, but her older sister, Toni, was the recipient of the Don Cornelius Legend Award. “To have her being paid homage to after over 20 years of being in the industry is amazing, Trina said of the special moment.

Mama Braxton added, “it’s about time.”

Other big performers from the night included 112, Sevyn Streeter and Luke James.

The show, hosted by Erykah Badu, airs on November 26 on BET at 8pm.


‘Annihilation’s’ Leading Ladies Use Intense Military Training As Bonding Experience



Annihilation is one hell of a visually stunning sci-fi film with five female leads on an expedition to uncover the mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.

For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.

“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.

And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
