While she hasn’t been released, her rep confirms to E! that
“Her doctors expect her to do just fine and recover completely. It is just a side effect of living with lupus.”
In other Braxton news, Tamar Braxton responds to rumors of skin bleaching and excessive cosmetic surgery in an exclusive interview with Bossip.
“I just want to know what time do I have to do that,” she told the site. “If you really think about it, we’ve been shooting ‘Braxton Family Values’ for two years and then in between that it was ‘Tamar & Vince,’ and now we’re back into production with ‘Braxton Family Values.’ So when did she change her face? I just think I grew up and I don’t look the same that I did when I was 19. I don’t think any of us do.”
Her husband Vince stepped in and added that she suffers from Vitiligo, a rare disorder that affects pigmentation of the skin.
“Actually, Tamar has the same thing that Michael Jackson had.” Braxton clarified her husband’s statement, saying she has vitiligo, but quickly changed the subject.
We send our well wishes to both ladies.
