Is Tamar Braxton the queen of freestyle singing?

Bringing us such classics as the impromptu ‘Bumpin & Grindin’, ‘Pick Up That Phone’, and ‘The Daddy Song’, Miss Braxton-Herbert may have comically secured that title by enlisting the piano skills of her superstar, Grammy-winning sister Toni Braxton recently.

Introducing the interestingly titled ‘Ding-a-Ling of Gold’, the tune is aimed at sister Trina Braxton‘s consideration of reconciliation with ex-husband Gabriel Solis.  The twosome’s split came highly publicized on the family’s hit WeTV reality series ‘Braxton Family Values’.

See the oldest and youngest of the Braxton clan take to the ivories to lend a heartfelt ballad with hopes of offering an explanation of Trina’s decision above:

They may have started out as friends, but as last week’s ‘Love & Hip Hop ATL Reunion: Part 1′ proved, there’s no love lost between cast mates Rasheeda and K. Michelle.

Now, after accusing the singer of fabricating allegations of abuse against former BET personality Memphitz, Rasheeda has taken to radio show ‘The Breakfast Club‘ to launch further attacks on her- admitting, she wish she had slapped during the taping of the reunion.

Much like ‘The Game’ switcheroos that left fans in the dark earlier this summer, many were shocked to learn that last week, Tracee Ellis Ross – lead star of BET‘s hit family comedy ‘Reed Between the Lines’ – made a very unexpected departure.  The show, recently renewed for its second season, was in gears to pick up where season 1 left off – chronicling love life of Ross’s character Dr. Carla Reed and husband Dr. Alex Reed (Malcolm Jamal Warner).

Initially mum on the topic, now Ross has taken to Essence.com to shed light on what caused her sudden departure:

“It was that BET hadn’t decided if they were picking up the show yet or not,” says Ross. “During that time when they didn’t know, I was offered a really amazing pilot for NBC, and BET graciously allowed me to go and do it. But it’s not because I wanted to leave.”

The former Girlfriends’ actress continued by saying:

“I love Reed Between the Lines, I believe in it. There is a chance I’ll go back, always. There’s nothing weird about it.”

No premiere date has been set for season 2 of the show.  It is, however, expected to be one of many filling out BET‘s highly anticipated 2013 lineup.
