NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tamar Braxton's Fox talk show, The Real, will return for another season Fall 2014. It will premiere on Fox owned-and-operated stations (Fox Television Stations) and also in a second window on BET.
Co-hosted by Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley, the one-hour daily talk show proved to be a massive success during its initial four-week, summer test run. As a result of the renewal, Braxton is simultaneously producing and starring in three hit television shows-The Real and WE tv's Tamar & Vince and Braxton Family Values [new season airing 11/14]. Across multiple platforms, this powerhouse's voice continues to enchant.
On November 11, she'll release her first Christmas album, Winter Loversland [Streamline/Epic Records]. Opening the gates to her very own holiday Loversland, Braxton infuses staples such as "Santa Baby" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" with her signature style. Moreover, she's got two surprises under the tree with new seasonal originals-"She Can Have You" and "No Gift." It's the perfect gift for fans of all ages.
About all of this wonderful news, she enthuses, "I feel so blessed right now. This has been one of the most incredible years of my life. I'm beyond excited for all of my Tamartian friends to hear and see everything on the horizon and love it all with me!"
Currently, Braxton is crisscrossing the country with John Legend, and critics continue to laud her performances night after night. VH1 writes, "She's got her very own shine and she's having the time of her life basking in it."
The singer, songwriter, television producer, and actress is set to perform at the 2013 Soul Train Awards. The ceremony tapes on November 8, 2013 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, NV and airs on CENTRIC and BET December 1, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT. She's up for awards including "Best New Artist" and "The Chaka Khan Best R&B/Soul Female Artist." Meanwhile, her breakout single, "Love & War," stands nominated for "Song of the Year," "Video of the Year," and "The Ashford and Simpson Songwriter's Award." The nominations round out a phenomenal year for the artist as she has cemented her status as one of R&B's leading ladies.
Recently, her debut album Love and War hit #2 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release, making for the year's highest debut from a female R&B artist. Meanwhile, it also topped the Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart and iTunes Top R&B Albums Chart. Press acclaim also showered the release. Vibe described the record as "Emotional and amazing," while ARTISTdirect.com called it "everything a classic R&B record should be and so much more." After gracing the cover of Ebony Magazine, she celebrated the album's release with performances on Good Morning America, Live With Kelly & Michael, and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
Tamar is also seeing continued success with her hit series Tamar & Vince currently airing at 9pm on WE tv; and this fall, Tamar and her sister are back with the dramatic and highly anticipated season 3 conclusion of Braxton Family Values. Sparks continue to fly amongst this sassy, outspoken and tight-knit group of women all striving for stardom while loving, laughing and feuding as only sisters can.
