Tamar Speaks on Embarrassing Vocal Issues

For the past few weeks, Tamar Braxton has been coughing up off notes at her shows, and it has some people questioning her vocal abilities. (Somewhere is Looneyville, K.

The two tried to tiptoe to Cancun for their “private” nuptials, but not without bringing along the Real Housewives of Atlanta drama-loving film crew. A private eye staying at the El Dorado Royale in Riviera Maya, where the wedding was held says she spotted the wives drinking and partying up while filming at the hotel’s bar. So season 6 is looking like sunny skies with a slight chance of shade from Mama Joyce and Kandi’s side-piece, cheating friend Carmen.
