Reality tv star Tamar Braxton sat for a very candid interview with Ebony.com where she discussed issues with her skin, the abusive relationships of her past and addressed rumors of plastic surgery.  See the highlights inside….

As she prepares to become a mother for the first time, Tamar Braxton sat down with Ebony.com where she opened up about sensitive issues like her skin disease (vitiligo) her abusive past ("one of her ex-boyfriends had dragged her out of her apartment by her hair"), and plastic surgery rumors.   Though we think we’ve seen all there is to see with Tamar Braxton, her interview revealed a vulnerable side that’s never been exposed on camera.  Here on the highlights:

 

On Being Abused:
“I almost had to tell my story to each individual and then I decided that’s not what I’m going to do. I can’t make anybody believe, I can’t change anybody’s mind about anything. (The abuse,) it happened. I’m not all the way comfortable with sharing a lot of what happened to me (yet), but what I said was true. When I’m ready to talk about my abusive past I will, I’m sorry that I’m not. But if it wasn’t for (God), I wouldn’t be here.”

She added,

“My husband (Vincent Herbert) definitely doesn’t abuse me,”


On her struggle with Vitiligo:

Anybody with skin issues knows that that’s a very sensitive subject. And that’s why I’ve never shared that I have Vitiligo, because I do. I’ve always had it, since I was a young girl. It’s not as bad as others because everybody has it differently, but I’ve certainly had mine diagnosed. That’s why I tan. People say, “You bleach your skin!” But I tan just so I can have a better tone on my skin, boo!

It’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten pregnant. If you shake my hand now, to me it’s more noticeable. But when you get diagnosed with a skin disorder, it’s hard. It does weigh on your self-esteem. It really does.

On Plastic Surgery:

"I don’t have plastic surgery. I never had plastic surgery. I had a nose procedure done because I had to. I had no cartilage in my nose, I have a piece of cartilage from my ear put into my nose. I had a medical procedure done. I have no plastic in my nose. And when I shared that with the world, now I have Botox, and different kind of fillers. Now I touch my face, which I never touch my face…Everything is real on me."

But, she hasn’t written plastic surgery off, just yet:

"After I have my baby, I might can’t say that everything is real on me. I might get my breasts done. Who knows if my breasts gonna go down to my ankles–I can’t do that!”

CHANGE UP: Actor Jesse L. Martin REPLACES Lenny Kravitz In “Sexual Healing” Biopic

Actor Jesse L. Martin is replacing Lenny Kravtiz in the lead role for the upcoming Marvin Gaye biopic "Sexual Healing."  Find out more inside….

Previously, we told you about the controversial Marvin Gaye biopic "Sexual Healing" and how Marvin’s son, Marvin Gaye III was a little upset that his childhood friend Lenny Kravitz had agreed to the role.  Mainly because the film focuses on the turbulent times of Marvin’s life and III wasn’t feeling it.  Now, Deadline.com is reporting that there’s been a shakeup in casting and now Marvin III will have to direct his frustration towards actor Jesse L. Martin.  If he still has any.

Jesse, who formerly starred on "Law & Order", will replace Lenny in the Julien Temple-directed flick which will start filming in later this month in Europe.

The film, produced by Vassal Benton and Fred Bestall, will focus on the music legend’s time in Europe in the 1980s when he attempted a drug-free comeback with the help of British music promoter Freddy Cousaert (played by Brendan Gleason).

Outside of the film, Jesse recently starred in the NBC pilot "The Secret Lives Of Husbands And Wives" (so far….the show hasn’t been picked up).
