Kandy Burruss, Evelyn Lozada, Chrissy Lampkin and Tamar Braxton Named The New “Role Models” By Vibe
When I saw the cover of Vibe’s latest issue I choked on my Arizona (Fruit Punch flavor). I could not believe my eyes. Outside of Kandi (whom I happen to adore) I could not fathom why anyone would consider Evelyn (Table Hopper) Lozado, Tamar (dot com) Braxton,or Chrissy (Beat ‘em up) Lampkin a role model. All three of these women have showed their natural born behinds on television in one way or the other and have proven beyond measures that they are incapable of controlling their actions.
Now, believe me when I say that I understand that in the heat of the moment you may lack the ability to use common sense, this has happened to the best of us, but three of the four women featured on this “role models” list gained their popularity for being negative and aggressive with their actions becoming worse with every new season. But I digress…
Anyway, the four ladies are featured on Vibe Magazine’s latest “sexy” issue as the new role models. During their interview, the ladies shared their thoughts about Star Jones and her petition, Evelyn’s
“infamous” bottle incident and Tamar.
Their thoughts on the petition started by Star Jones:
Evelyn:[Bursts into laughter] I think she’s going to have to get a whole lot of names. Actually, I like the petition and I like the controversy because I’ve learned controversy is good. But I think she’s irrelevant. And she’s using our coattails to get relevant again. Nobody gives a fuck about her.
Chrissy:Whatever Star Jones is feeling is a little deeper than what she sees. I think she has her own issues.
Kandi: She may not be violent, but I’m sure she goes off on people in her day-to-day. I just don’t think it’s fair to block somebody from getting money.
On Evelyn’s bottle throwing:
Evelyn: Yeah, happen to be throwing a few things. It’s frustrating because, on the other hand, I’ve also done positive things like charities with kids. It’s unfortunate because those things don’t seem to mean anything.
Chrissy: It bothers me [too] because it’s not all of who I am. It’s a part of who I am. It’s also something that I’m working on because who am I to put my hands on somebody else?
Tamar:I just wanna address the biggest misconception with Evelyn. She’s not just beautiful on the outside; she’s a beautiful soul. I believe that people who want to make a difference in our community should be shown [doing so]. Sometimes, with our shows, you only see that [negative] side, but Evelyn will give you the shirt off of her back.
Evelyn:It’s tough because if we were only doing positive things, people wouldn’t want us. But if I say, “Tamar, you’re a stupid fucking bitch,” people love that.
Kandi: That’s because we’re a real life soap opera. You know how your family watched All My Children for 20 years? That’s what we are now.
On Tamar being “popolicious”:
Tamar:I’m not like that with my girlfriends, though. If we’re all out, I’m more outgoing, more fun. I’m not poppin’ off. I’m just not gonna mess up my face [laughs]. But on the series [spin-off] with [my husband] Vince, you’ll see me in a friendship setting. I’m just as passionate. I’m not just gonna fight. I’m not gonna be a donkey. I’m definitely gonna give you my opinion because I feel like that’s why you love me.
Chrissy: I was easily angered because I signed up for something that was supposed to be about girl power and women embracing each other in this crazy world of hip-hop. I thought it was gonna be more of a support thing instead of Gladiators. They would always bring somebody to challenge me. I would knock ’em down and they would bring somebody else.
On Being set up by the producers:
Chrissy:Absolutely. They would go as far as telling the new girl, “Chrissy thinks she’s Queen Bee around here so we need you to step up because nobody here has a strong enough personality. We need you to shut it down.” They were feeding people this negative energy from the door. I have no reason to lie.
Kandi: If [the producers] know this person and that person don’t get along, they’ll be like, “Okay, we want you guys to go to lunch.” They know if they have a conversation about what’s going on, something’s gonna jump off. But nobody can make you physically punch somebody in the face. We end up doing that to ourselves from people being real disrespectful in the way they’re speaking to each other, pointing fingers all in people’s faces. Some people just can’t take that.
