    ‘Tamar & Vince’ show announced

    Just as Sister 2 Sister first reported, “Braxton Family Values” breakout star Tamar Braxton and her husband Vince Herbert are getting their own reality series, and WE tv has made it official.

    “We are so very excited for this amazing opportunity," said Tamar in a statement. “With our family series, ‘Braxton Family Values’, we aim to show audiences the true meaning of family and sisterhood, and with our new show, marriage.  Our journey as two driven individuals that love as hard as we work is one we think audiences will relate to.”

    According to WE tv, “This new show will follow Tamar in her ongoing pursuit of pop superstardom, with Vince helping and supporting her every step of the way. In Tamar’s world, anything can happen, but Vince is always there to be the voice of reason, and bring her back down to earth.  Viewers will get an inside look at their complicated yet devoted relationship, including how their upscale lifestyle must adjust as Vince recovers from a recent life-threatening health scare.”

    There’s no word yet on exactly when the series will premiere. WE tv is currently airing episodes of "Braxton Family Values" season 2.

    “You ain’t so tough now, boy!” Game said. “See? Stop throwing, $H!t, boy,” he said.



    Beyoncé working on fifth album

    For those who thought having a baby might slow Beyoncé down, think again.

    The 4 artist is apparently ready to start working on #5 with producer Dream.

    "She’s ready to work," Dream told The BoomBox. "She’s crazy! She never stops doing anything. I don’t know if [pregnancy] is going to slow her down. She’s just incredible with doing things. I don’t know how she’s going to do it, she’s just a maniac… in a good way."

    Mathew Knowles responds to radio ban

    Mathew Knowles seems to be taking news that his music artists are banned from airplay on Radio One in stride.

    “I leave that to attorneys to handle this part of it. I think for me and my 20 years in the music industry…whenever situations like this come, I look at them as opportunities, an opportunity that this has allowed for Music World Gospel to really understand better the landscape to build those relationships at radio with the other different affiliates, like Sheridan and Clear Channel and many others,” he recently told EURweb.
