*Tamar Braxton has called out WE tv yet again, and this time she’s pissed over the first trailer for season 7 of “Braxton Family Values” that was released on Oct. 21.
In the superteaser showing fans what they can expect this season, cameras captured Toni Braxton’s reaction when the family learns about Tamar’s suicide attempt.
Evelyn Braxton explains, “Toni called. She told me that Tamar was rushed to the hospital because she tried to commit suicide.” Toni added, “It seemed like a dream, a bad dream.”
Soon after the clip dropped, Tamar took to Instagram to slam the network for using her pain for a ratings ploy, E! News reports.
“After waking up to that disgusting trailer…F–K @wetv and whomever else participating for using my pain for their pleasure and ratings‼” she wrote on social media. “At some point this abuse HAS to STOP‼ and P.S. IM NOT FILMING FOR THIS SEASON! THEY ARE DOING THIS WHILE IM NOT ON THE SHOW‼ #SCUMBAGS–T.”
Over the summer, Tamar was found unconscious by her then-boyfriend David Adefeso at their Los Angeles hotel. She received treatment at a local hospital and later transferred to a mental health facility.

In an Instagram post, Tamar said WE tv contributed to her mental health decline.
“Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave,” Tamar said in a statement shared on Instagram. “I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over two months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing.”
She claimed, “My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most.”
Following Tamar’s allegations, WE tv said they were ending “all future work” with the singer.
“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade,” the statement said. “As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing but the best.”
The new season of “Braxton Family Values” returns Nov. 5 at 9 p.m. on WE tv. Scroll up and watch the new teaser above.
LisaRaye and Mother Go OFF on Each Other! WATCH Explosive Trailer for ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’
*Actress LisaRaye McCoy is already on the lips of folks because of her comments about Halle Berry’s bedroom skills … or lack thereof. Well, after last night’s “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” we suspect she’ll be on folk’s lips all over again.
If you missed it, the actress sat down with her mother and her daughter to discuss tensions in their family on the latest episode of the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network series.
In the preview promo video above, LisaRaye and her mom Katie McCoy are shown yelling at each other about the actress’ late father.
“She knew her daddy was a damn hoe,” Katie says about her daughter. The Fox Soul “Cocktails With Queens” co-host responds with: “What do I do about it now, mom? Can I buy you?” Katie grows angrier and fires back, “You ain’t got enough damn money to buy me!”
Later in the video, LisaRaye says, “My mom, she makes me feel like that’s what I don’t want to be.”
Vanzant then points to Katie and explains, “You’re looking at a bitter, unhappy woman who thinks she’s entitled to something.”
For those who don’t know the story, LisaRaye had a close relationship with her father, Chicago businessman David Ray McCoy, who was murdered in 1988.
As UrbanHollywood411 notes, after decades of anger and disrespect in the McCoy family, Iyanla tries to help LisaRaye and Katie settle their differences, and warns them: “If you ain’t willing to fall, life will tear you down.”
Even though the episode aired last night on OWN, you can watch it anytime online via this URL/link: http://www.oprah.com/own-iyanla-fix-my-life/lisaraye-mccoy.
Cosby’s Rep Releases Strange Video Ahead of Tues. Hearing: ‘These Aren’t Normal Times’ / WATCH
*Folks are puzzled over a bizarre video by Bill Cosby’s spokesman which compared the disgraced comedian’s sexual assault conviction to the police killings of black people across America.
The brief video features Andrew Wyatt appears and was posted on Cosby’s social media accounts Friday, in which he begins by saying “These aren’t normal times.”
“In this 21st century, we have witnessed the senseless murders of black men and women at the hands of a few bad law enforcement officers — but not all. We have witnessed the unjust conviction and incarceration of a true American treasure and citizen, actor-comedian Bill Cosby, and we are witnessing a pandemic unlike anything we have seen in our lifetime.”
The video also asks followers to tune into a virtual hearing in Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Tuesday, when Cosby’s lawyers will make oral arguments in the appeal of his 2018 conviction.
“On behalf of myself, and Mr. and Mrs. Cosby, we thank you for your love and support and may the most high God continue to keep you and your family safe during these difficult times,” Wyatt said.

As has been reported, Cosby, 83, is serving a three- to 10-year sentence for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.
Cosby’s social media accounts have been regularly updated as he serves his sentence in Pennsylvania prison and his team fights for his exoneration.
Camille, Cosby’s wife of 56 years, has railed against her husband’s case, even accusing the judge of racism.
In 2014, Camille released a statement saying that her husband had been the victim of accusations:
“The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work. He is a kind man… and a wonderful husband, father and friend.”
Abby Phillip of CNN: A Next-Gen Star is Born
*In this age of fast-talking and often overbearing television news correspondents, many have been in the business far longer than CNN’s Abby Phillip. Yet Philip, 31, is a breath of fresh air.
During the recent presidential election night coverage, and the days that followed, more people turned to CNN than any other news outlet, to get their information about the historic election.
What viewers witnessed was a strong team of correspondents, with Phillip at center stage. She has been touted for presenting journalistic brilliance, rooted in deep perspectives and wisdom of the political landscape. Phillip was superbly praised, especially when she talked about the role Black women played in the presidential election.
“For Black women, this has been really a proving moment for their political strength, in carrying Joe Biden to the Democratic nomination through the primary,” Phillip told the NY Times.
And even before Biden’s win, Phillip predicted the former vice president would become president-elect.
“Not only would Black Women put Joe Biden in the White House,” Phillip said on the air. “but they would also put a Black woman in the White House as well. And while Donald Trump’s political career began with the racist birther lie, it may very well end with a Black woman in the White House.”
While what Phillip said on the air is profound, it’s just as important how she said it. Phillip is methodic in her vocal delivery, with a cadence and inflection in her voice that draw viewers to her solemn and insightful take on an array of political topics.
Born in Virginia and raised in Bowie, Maryland to parents from Trinidad and Tobago, Phillip ultimately graduated from Harvard College with a bachelor’s degree in government. After working at ABC News and the Washington Post, CNN hired Phillip in 2017 as a political news analyst.
While she has been a valued news analyst and contributor on many segments at CNN since joining the popular cable outlet, her star began to rise exponentially after she was chosen to help anchor the coverage of the 2020 Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention. The ultimate shine on the star came when CNN’s executive producers tapped her to be a major political contributor on election night, which has been called the most important election in American history.
“I was excited, but I was stressed,” Phillip said. “I knew it was a big deal.”
