Lindsay Lohan Talks Rehab, Paparazzi, Oprah And Her Breakup With Wilmer Valderrama

lindsay

Actress (?) LINDSAY LOHAN makes an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday, March 31st. Lindsay sheds some light on her most recent stint in rehab, about the paparazzi not following her anymore, and about her love life. Plus, Lindsay shares with Ellen what she did after her breakup with Wilmer Valderrama, as well as her relationship with Oprah.

Check out the highlights from the interview below:

ON GOING TO REHAB:

Ellen: Did that give you more pressure…because you’ve been in rehab a bunch. Right? Like six times. Is that right? Something like that. So does this because there’s cameras following you is that what helped you I think be healthy. You said you were healthier then you’ve ever been. Do you think that gave you pressure to be healthier or?

Lindsay: No, I think that this was the first time that I was able to you know, when I went to treatment this time, when I went to Cliffside, I really wanted a moment for myself and I learned a lot of different tools and things that I didn’t in the past. In the past a lot of it people don’t know this, but I was sent to rehab to avoid you know, them trying to put me in jail. So it wasn’t something that I necessarily wanted or was ready for. It was something that it was kind of just going with the motions. And this was the first time where I went to Shawn Holley, my lawyer, and said look I need some time. I need to figure something out. And it was through kind of you know meditation and learning different things that and just growing up as well and being like I’m tired and I want to be working and all these other girls are doing this and I’ve been doing this my whole life…and maybe, you know, that’s what makes me happy. So I’m just going to do what I have to do to get there again.

ON PAPARAZZI AND LIVING IN NEW YORK:

Lindsay: By moving to New York I can walk on the street and be a human being. Like I can be normal…

Ellen: Yea but you have paparazzi constantly.

Lindsay: No, I don’t.

Lindsay: No I don’t.

Ellen: Oh, they stopped?

Lindsay: Not at all.

Ellen: It was crazy though.

Lindsay: I’ve been in in LA for two weeks and thank god I’m leaving tomorrow because I’m saying this now, but they have not bothered me at all. It’s totally different now. It’s strange. I also don’t put myself in the same situations. You know, there is nothing left for me in going out to a certain place if I know what it’s going to result in. It’s just not worth it to me.


ON DATING:

Ellen: And so are you dating anyone now?

Lindsay: No.

Ellen: And I heard you were on some kind of dating website like Tinder or something?

Lindsay: You know what is so funny, my brother went on my Instagram and did that.

Ellen: He put you on Tinder?

Lindsay: He did it. Ya on my Instagram. He has a girlfriend of like seven years. I was like isn’t Nina going to get mad at you. I’ve never been on Tinder. So yesterday when I was talking to someone that works here they were like so I hear that you’re on Tinder. I was like I don’t even know how to get on it.

Ellen: Would you want to do that?

Lindsay: No. I’m ok with just taking care of me.

Ellen: Ok. Are you nervous about people meeting you for the wrong reasons? It would be hard to meet guys and then you have to be very selective for so many reasons. Like they’re not a good influence or they want to be with you and not for attention.

Lindsay: That sounds very exhausting.

Ellen: Well it is. Think about it.

Lindsay: I just like want to work and take care of me right now. I don’t really…That’s not even a thought.

Ellen: Are you working?

Lindsay: Yea, I’m starting a movie in May with Lionsgate and two great producers.

Ellen: Good.

ON HER MUSIC CAREER AND HER BREAK UP WITH WILMER VALDERRAMA:

Ellen: I don’t remember you actually ever singing. Did you sing longer than just on my show?

Lindsay: That’s great. That’s probably why I’m not singing right now.

Ellen: But, seriously. Did you sing for a while and I just didn’t know that?

Lindsay: I didn’t really do much promotion for it. I love music. Music is a huge part of my life just in general. Even when I’m on set like I’ll listen to songs that kind of like help the character in the scene and gets me into…

Ellen: Right.

Lindsay: But, I was really nervous that day I remember.

Ellen: Really? You came off really good.

Lindsay: That was a really emotional song. It was like about my dad…no I’d just broken up with someone.

Ellen: Who?

Lindsay: Well…

Ellen: Do you remember who? No?

Lindsay: Apparently there’s a list of many guys.

Ellen: I know. I have a list of people. I hear there’s a list going around of all.

Lindsay: It was Wilmer actually.

Ellen: It was what?

Lindsay: It was Wilmer Valderrama.

Ellen: It was Wilmer?

Lindsay: Ya.

Ellen: And did it break your heart?

Lindsay: I was really upset. Ya and that song I had written like the day after and we were still living together. I sang it in his house. Tortured him just recording the song so loud in his house.

Ellen: Wow. That’s amazing.

Lindsay: And I was filming Herbie at the same time. That was…there was a lot going on.

Ellen: Well, you’ve always had a lot going on.

ON HER RELATIONSHIP WITH OPRAH:

Ellen: How does Oprah feel about this and do you talk to her often?

Lindsay: I speak to her almost everyday and she’s just…she’s been so amazing to me. Just, you know, for everything even before the show was coming out I was getting really panicked cause I hadn’t really heard my name like anywhere in so long. And I would turn on the TV and it was right after the Oscars, so I thought I’d have like a minute like I thought it would kind of like distract from the show which is probably not a thing they would want to hear from the network.

Ellen: Right.

Lindsay: But then I just kept hearing my name and I started getting really like panicked about it and I just called her and she was just talking me through it and everything and she got me really into meditation. I mean that…she’s one of the reasons why that’s such a big part of my life. She’s just been a really strong guiding light and force to me as a friend and someone that I admire.

Ellen: I’m glad. I’m glad that she came into your life and I’m glad you’re listening to her cause she does have good advice.

Lindsay: Ya.

Kristin Cavallari From No Vaccinations to Pregnancy Sex, Girlfriend Won’t Quit Talking

MAGIC Market Week - Day 1

I used to adore Kristin Cavallari, but the problem recently has been her opening her mouth and spewing, spewing and spewing words.

It all started out with her anti-vaccination rant where she announced that she hasn’t vaccinated her 19 month old son Camden and doesn’t plan on it either. She said, “You know, at the end of the day, I’m just a mom. There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines and what they cause — asthma, allergies, ear infections, all kinds of things. We feel like we are making the best decision for our kids.” She added, “There is a pediatric group called Homestead, or Home First? Pregnancy brain, I’ve got it confused. They’ve never vaccinated any of their children and they haven’t had one case of autism. And now, one in 88 boys is autistic, which is a really scary statistic. … The vaccinations have changed over the years, there’s more mercury.”

I understand that she doesn’t want to vaccinate her child and while I feel that is ignorant, it’s her business, her opinion and her family. But NOW she is talking about hitting the skins with her husband while she is pregnant and it is kind of a little bit too much information if you ask me especially in the way that she speaks about it.

In an interview with Fit Pregnancy, Kristin opens up about pregnancy sex and she talks about it like her husband is 12 years old and gets creeped out by the word “vagina” or “penis”.

Cavallari said, “Sex is funny when you’re pregnant. Guys get weird about it. I’m like, ‘Oh Jay, the baby’s kicking!’ And he’s like, not wanting to know about it. It’s important for women to realize — if your guy is a little weirded out but isn’t good at expressing that, it can be isolating.”

Girl, really?!!!

Lea Michele Covers Seventeen Magazine: Talks Life After Death Of Boyfriend Cory Monteith

lea-michele

Lea Michele appears on the cover of Seventeen’s April 2014 issue (on stands March 11th). In her interview with Seventeen, she discusses life after the death of boyfriend and Glee costar, Cory Monteith, and how she plans to follower her passion and find lasting happiness after heartbreak. She proves that even when your life is turned upside down, you have the strength within to find your happiness and live your best life.

SEV040114_131

Highlights via Seventeen magazine:

On rumors of a Glee spin-off: “Let’s do it. I think it could be Rachel living in New York and working on Broadway!”

On how she plans to follow her passion and find lasting happiness:
· Figure out who you are: “I set out to make a really pop-heavy album that was fun and empowering – I love Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson! But then I found myself picking and writing these songs that were very emotional and dramatic. Louder has songs that express extreme love and some pain. I look at it and think, That was my year. I didn’t record any songs that I didn’t completely relate to.”

· Find true love: “I only have happy memories of Cory. He was not his addiction – unfortunately, it won. But that wasn’t who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, ‘I’m your boyfriend,’ I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful.”

· Get body confident: “I’m very comfortable with my own body. I come from Broadway – everybody’s naked on Broadway. I like to think of myself as more granola. I’m not going to run around naked or anything like that unless I’m at my own home. Today, I walked into my backyard and was standing out there naked for a while. Don’t tell: My neighbors will freak out!”

Lindsay Lohan Talks New BFF…Oprah

lindsay-lohan-scary-movie_1

Via Extra TV:

Only “Extra’s” AJ Calloway was with Lindsay Lohan right after her appearance on “The Tonight Show” starring Jimmy Fallon. Lindsay saying, “It’s just really good energy…We played a game called water wars …I only got one hit though which was really good.” Lindsay saying Jimmy got soaked, “I got him good, I didn’t realize the gun was gonna shoot so high, hit him in the face.”

Lindsay’s next TV appearance, Sunday night when her docu-series airs on OWN, “I did it because it’s not a reality show, it’s pretty raw…Obviously it’s TV so things will be edited in certain ways to what will get ratings, which I can’t control, but I do know that my intentions going into it were really pure and really honest and real and I really appreciate all that’s happened and all that she’s done for me.”

Lohan continued, “I love that I can call Oprah on the phone, and be like Oprah can we talk right now and she calls me within two minutes and I have to trick her into leaving voice mails so I can just have Oprah’s voicemails…She’s the coolest person ever.”

Lindsay getting emotional when AJ shares with her that he told Oprah she had decided not to go on a trip to Europe at the premiere of Lee Daniels “The Butler.” AJ, “You were supposed to go away and you didn’t go away…I’m the one that said it to her on the carpet.” Lindsay, “She told me about that.” AJ, “She almost started crying on the carpet, she was so emotional about that, she was like, I’m so happy.” Lindsay wiping away her own tears, “She’s amazing, she is…She’s been a blessing to me, she’s great and I couldn’t be happier or more grateful.”

Lindsay saying overall she feels really good and she just wants to keep working. “My grandmother’s dream is gonna come true, I’m taking her on The Chew, so things are looking up….Life is really good.”

Well hopefully she has her head on straight and that the dolla dolla bills that Oprah is dangling right in front of her keeps her running well ahead of the drugs and bad influences. She has all the odds stacked against her, but the right person on her side!

Lindsay just say…

Real Housewives of Atlanta Star, Kandi Burruss, Gets Candid with JET

kandi

Reality star, singer, songwriter, producer and entrepreneur, Kandi Burruss, appears radiant on the cover of JET magazine as she opens up about her career and her very public relationship with her mother, “Mama Joyce,” and fiancé, Todd Tucker.

“When I speak about anything on camera I want to accomplish it before we finish taping,” Burruss tells JET regarding her drive and ambition. “I am a ‘do what I say’ person. I want people to know I’m not a [phony]. I hate when people on reality shows mention how they want to do this and that, but you never hear of it again,” she added.

With a successful adult toy line, Bedroom Kandi, her Atlanta-based studio, The Kandi Factory, and her musical, A Mother’s Love, set for DVD release in April, Burruss certainly has proven that she has a keen sense for business. She admits her relationship with Tucker has helped her sharpen her skills.

“I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented,” said Burruss. “But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”

Although many know that Burruss’ mother, Joyce Jones, is firmly against the union of her daughter with Tucker, she concedes exclusively to JET that “If they are married and it lasts, I will be the first to apologize.”
“When my mother was younger it was all about getting a man to be a provider,” said Burruss addressing her mother’s qualms. “She leans toward a man who is financially more well-off than the dude who is just a good guy.” She added, “I’ve dated guys who are more successful than me, and my mom is like, no matter what he does wrong, you have to work it out.”

Readers can read the articles in its entirety and more in the March 31st issue of JET magazine, on newsstands now.

Mindy Kaling Celebrates Season Two Of The Mindy Project!

mindykaling

To celebrate the second season of The Mindy Project, Mindy Kaling thanked her cast and crew at a private wrap party in LA on March 1st. Fellow writers, cast mates, and crew toasted to another season of hard work, big laughs, and shockingly attractive male guest stars with the recently released Johnnie Walker Platinum Label. Always the most charming hostess, Mindy raised a glass (okay, two glasses, it was a party) as she made a special toast thanking everyone for a season full of laughter.

After the official last day of filming of the season, the whisky aficionado showed both her cast and her team of writers just how much she cares with a special gift of rare whisky, Johnnie Walker Blue Label. To the cast she engraved the bottle with the message “Great year! Rest up. xoxo, Mindy ” and for her team of writers “Great year. Get back to work. xo, Mindy.”

Congrats to Mindy on the renewal of her show!

Lindsay Lohan Gets Water Thrown In Her Face! (VIDEO)

lindsay

Oh everyone is doing their best to try to get Lindsay Lohan back in the game. But is Lilo trying to get herself back in the game? Well, based on who she has in her corner, it is very well possible. Not only does she have Oprah on her side, she now has Jimmy Fallon too, giving her publicity on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

While Jimmy and Lindsay did talk a lot about appearing on Jimmy’s first show, doing a guest spot on “Two Broke Girls,” a possible Mean Girls reunion, and her documentary series and friendship with Oprah, Jimmy also soaked Lindsay with a ton of water…in the FACE.

Yep, Lilo got super soaked right in the face, but that is what happens when you compete against Jimmy and lose. Therefore it is only her fault since she lost Fallon’s infamous card game “Water War”, where the loser of each hand gets splashed with glasses of water.

Check out Lindsay getting some big time water thrown in her face in the video below.

Oprah Tells Lindsay Lohan to “Cut the Bull” In Reality Show Extended Promo

Oprah got Lindsay Lohan TOGETHER in the extended promo of Lindsay’s upcoming reality show, Lindsay, on OWN!

The clip gives an inside look into how difficult the actress was while filming her life after her stint in rehab.

“So we were supposed to start shooting at 12:30 and Lindsay is locked out of her apartment. Which means we might not start shooting for a couple of hours,” director Amy Rice says with a sigh after a number of Lindsay’s tearful scenes from the first trailer are shown. She then jumps on her cell phone and says, “She’s not letting us into her apartment.”

Oprah soon comes in to settle the fuss. “My truth is that I really do want you to win. I really do,” the talk-show host says. “If that isn’t what you want, I’m OK with that, you know, I will tell these guys to pack up and leave.”

“No, it’s not that I’m not ready to do that, I do want to,” Lindsay replies before Oprah lets her know upfront: “You need to cut the bulls–t then, you really do.”

Check out the extended sneak peek below!

Lindsay premieres on Sunday, March 9, at 10 p.m. on OWN. I will definitely be watching! I’m rooting for Lindsay, though I’m not exactly sure how a reality show is going to help her better her life. I hope she stays on the right track, though!

Will you be watching?

Jennette McCurdy Lingerie Photos Leaked!

jennette

Oh boy. Jennette McCurdy lingerie photos have been leaked. While many are saying McCurdy’s ex-boyfriend NBA player Andre Drummond could be behind the scandalous selfie leaks, many are blaming the iCarly star for leaking them herself!

Let me tell you, this all sounds like a big fat drama fest of he said she said, but at any rate this is a girl that many young girls look up to and now parents worldwide are going to have to do some ‘splainin’. Or worse yet, ban Sam and Cat from their televisions forever!!!!

Granted these pictures aren’t exposing her vajayjay or tatas, but pictures of Jennette McCurdy in her panties can be just as incriminating.

Kind of a bummer for McCurdy if she was trying to maintain a squeaky clean image. Perhaps that little comment she made about her ex boyfriend not being a good kisser landed her in deep selfie exposure.

At any rate, here they are and for all you peeps wondering what Jennette McCurdy looked like in her skivvies, well here ya go you big freaks.

Yet another young television star growing up right before our eyes. Wow.

Khloe Kardashian Covers Cosmo: Talks Kids, Her Personal Life And Bruce Jenner

khloekardashian

Khloé Kardashian covers the April issue of Cosmopolitan, on stands March 4th. The interview – her first since filing for divorce from Lamar Odom – features candid remarks from both Khloé and her mom Kris on relationships, making mistakes and learning as they go. Writer Laurie Sandell sat down with the Kardashians in their home in California for the exclusive chat, complete with a cameo from soon-to-be family member, Kanye West.

Check out the highlights below:

Khloé on her close knit family:
It makes me a better person. We live in the public eye, so if one of us makes a mistake, it affects everyone…I have a such a great support system here. We’re so judged when we leave these walls that we try never to do that to one another.

On Bruce Jenner:
It makes me sad that people think Bruce is no longer a part of my life. I talk to him every day! I consider him my second father.
Kris Jenner: He’s my best friend and I adore him. We talk on the phone several times a day. But he’s better living in Malibu.

Khloé on how she handles life’s obstacles:
I’m not a big “cry on a shoulder” person. I’m very introverted when it comes to my own stuff. Everyone has issues and I’m not someone who likes to burden people…I hold things in. I don’t know why.

Khloé on what she would like the public to know about her personal life:
Your life is meant for you to understand and process, not to make anyone else happy. Kim was so thrashed for her marriage and it not working out. If she wasn’t happy it took guts to say, “You know what? I can’t do this anymore.” But you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. People hate us for showing stuff and they hate us when we say, “Fine, we won’t show it anymore.” I don’t have any regrets. I wouldn’t change a thing. You learn as you go.

Khloé on having kids one day:
I love kids. I hope and pray I have kids when the time is right.

Khloé on where she hopes to be in 10 years:
I live for the moment. If you think too far in the future, you might get disappointed or set the bar too low. It sucks at times, but everything happens for a reason, no matter how sh#tty your circumstances are. To say where I want to be in 10 years…I have no idea. I just know that I want to be happy and smiling.

Of COURSE Kris Jenner had to be present for that interview to make sure Khloe didn’t say anything she didn’t approve of. Or at least that’s how I see Mama Jenner. The last time Khloe had an interview she said something about her mother calling her fat when she was like 4 years old or whatever and that she needed to go on a diet. I’m sure Kris definitely wanted to prevent any other family “secrets” from being revealed.

The Arsenio Hall Show Renewed for a Second Season

Arsenio Hall got a really nice surprise on the set of The Arsenio Hall Show during Wednesday night’s episode! Turns out that CBS picked up a second season of his talk show…and Jay Leno came out to surprise him with the good news!

After sneaking up behind Arsenio, Jay told him and the audience  the news. Arsenio hugged him, saying “How come I don’t get my news first?!” Jay replied, “He’s more annoyed that I knew before he did!” Jay then joked, “Actually, in the second season, I’m going to be hosting. They didn’t tell you that part!”

Check out the surprise below!

“We are thrilled that Arsenio will be returning for a second season,” Joe DiSalvo, president of sales at CBS Television Distribution said in a statement. “We knew Arsenio had a built-in fan base, but he’s also reaching a new generation. This season, Arsenio has been the youngest late-night talk show on broadcast television and has given our station partners a real alternative for their late-night lineups.”

Arsenio also said in a statement, “Since 9/9/13, I’ve been waking up without an alarm clock. Producing and hosting my late-night talk show brings me great joy. I’m back where I belong! Thanks to my partners at CBS Television Distribution and Tribune.”

I’m really happy for Arsenio! Averaging 6.7 million views a week, the show has been doing very well, and has had a slew of great artists and other celebs come on. Arsenio’s naturally a good host, so it’ll be great to see another season. Hopefully there’s many more to come!

Mad Men Stars Dish with The Saturday Evening Post on Audition Tapes, Childhood, and Fan Reactions

EveningPostMadMen

Let me just say I cannot WAIT for the next (and sadly final) season of Mad Men to start. Squeeeee! Yes, that’s my excited slash school girl yell.

As cable television readies itself for the first half of the final season of AMC’s acclaimed period drama Mad Men, The Saturday Evening Post interviews Jon Hamm and five other key cast members as well as series creator Matt Weiner.

In March/April 2014′s cover story, legendary Hollywood reporter Jeanne Wolf sat down with the cast, asking how they’ve grown and why fans project so much love and hate on their characters. The Post complements the story with a cover based on a Norman Rockwell illustration that appeared in its Sept. 17, 1960 issue. Fans will enjoy the bonus section following the interview. In “Real Mad Men at Work,” the Post throws open the doors to its archives to presents a look back at the “new” look of vintage ’60s-era art and advertising.

Check out the highlights from the cast interview below:

John Hamm on Don Draper: “Don Draper is a guy that looks good in all appearances and yet is essentially a disaster.”

January Jones (Betty) on fans’ reactions to her character: “People come up to me, and they
straight up say that they dislike me.”

Vincent Kartheiser (Pete Campbell) on his wildest post-fame purchase: “The wildest thing I’ve bought is a Japanese toilet, a Toto, a fancy and expensive toilet. The Ferrari of toilets.”

John Slattery (Roger Sterling) on seeing his audition tape recently: “You watch yourself on the audition tape and flashback, ‘Oh my God, I started out and my kid was six years old, and he’s in high school now.’ You change, especially physically. I feel like I’m 100 years older than when we started.”

Elizabeth Moss (Peggy Olson) on character judgments: “The only time I heard a problem was people questioning my character’s choices in dating. Which I have in real life as well. But I’m always like, ‘Really? You never made a mistake in who you dated?’ And that’s Peggy’s story. She keeps making her mistakes over and over unfortunately.”

Christina Hendricks (Joan Harris) on the new attention focused on her: “I’ve had days of anxiety or panic about being looked at or being talked about, and that’s made me just want to stay home.”

Executive Producer and series creator Matt Weiner on fans’ investment in the show: “It’s been an education for me to realize that what a lot of people find entertaining is feeling superior to the activity that’s going on on the screen. They want to have their values reaffirmed; they want to have this sort of narcissistic gratification of ‘I know what’s going to happen.’ ‘I know how this world is going to work out.’ Or, ‘Thank God I’m not like that.’”

Hamm on the secret to the show’s success: “There are so many variables. At any point in the development of the show, somebody could have made a decision that ruined it. They could have put a flaw in it and magnified over time, but it didn’t happen. Instead, everybody made the right decisions, because everybody is in it for the right reasons.”

Heroes Is Reborn, Making Hayden Panettiere a Really Busy Lady!

heroes-reborn

This announcement just came last night, but I am kind of freaked out. My man has been watching Heroes episodes on Netflix for the past couple of weeks. Did he know something that we all didn’t know? Freaky! At any rate, NBC is bringing back its conquering “Heroes” and fans are going nuts. I have yet to talk to my man about this, but I’ll let you all know his thoughts on this, which I am sure are happy thoughts as he gets pretty cray cray and engrossed in his shows.

An iconic series that still commands a rabid fan base, “Heroes” will return to the network in 2015 as an event miniseries with original creator and executive producer Tim Kring at the helm, it was announced today by NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke.

NBC has ordered 13 episodes for a new stand-alone story arc entitled “Heroes Reborn,” with all details of storylines and characters being kept under wraps.

“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”

The original series chronicled the life-changing stories of a series of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities. As the saga unfolded, they learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world.

With the return of “Heroes Reborn,” NBC will launch a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere that will introduce the characters and new storylines. This leveraging of social media is a way for fans to re-engage with what was one for the true pioneers in multiplatform storytelling.

#HeroesReborn

This came out of left field! And Hayden Panettiere will work on both Nashville and Heroes, making her one busy lady. You go girl!

Check out the teaser promo below.

Tamera Mowry-Housley Controversy Talks Criticism Surrounding Her Interracial Marriage

tamara

Tamera Mowry-Housley makes an appearance on the Bethenny show to talk about the controversy surrounding her interracial marriage to husband Adam Mosely. And the prejudice isn’t just from one race, she’s getting it from all kinds. She says she’s been called a “white man’s whore” and “less of a black woman” because of her marriage.

So what does she think about the hatred?

Well quite frankly, she’s sick of it!

tamara1

Check out highlights from the interview below:

Bethenny: Your mom is black and ur father is white?
Tamera: Yes. My mom is a beautiful black woman and my father is a very handsome white man.
Bethenny: So you are interracial?
Tamera: Well I’m mixed, I’m bi-racial yes, and I’m in an interracial marriage, yes.
Bethenny: And you’ve gotten a lot of heat for that.
Tamera: Which is so weird.
Bethenny: More than most people do you feel like cause I don’t hear it as much.
Tamera: Really girl?
Bethenny: We’re talking about it with you because I know it’s something that you’ve dealt with.
Tamera: Yeah, I hear it from a lot of my friends, even my makeup artist. She’s in an interracial relationship and she gets it. I think maybe because social media is what it is right now. I have a Twitter account and people feel like they can just come to it and say whatever but I’ve learned to love my block button and I’m just choosing to see the positive side of it. We have more people loving on us than hating on us and we are choosing to focus on that now.
Bethenny: It’s amazing that something like Twitter which represents the most modern form of technology, that the things that people are saying on it are the most archaic feelings in the world. Right, I mean it’s ironic.
Tamera: Please they don’t even know me, they don’t know my friends.
Bethenny: But what does that even matter? What about if you had all black friends or all white friends? What does it even matter?
Tamera: Honestly, who cares? That’s where I’m at right now? Do you know by the year 2050 Time Magazine says that most people are going to be mixed so honestly the people who are posting those things need to get over it. They need to get hip!

ON HER RACIST CRITICS:

I was actually hurt because my parents had experienced it way back in the day and I was hurt because we as a community have come so far and we fight against it all the time. I was hurt that people still felt that way but the opposite way, you see what I’m saying? So if anything, I was devastated, hurt, and like I said I’m just going to pray and look at the positive.

I still can’t get over the fact that there are such ignorant, hateful people out there. So ridiculous!
