When everyone else is talking about the not-so-subtle remarks Braxton made about her former co-hosts from The Real, I am trying to get the inside scoop on “dis’ere” Spanx, chile. Whatever she is breathing or taking in, I would gladly partake in, too!
As confident as she is, the Prettiest Girl singer boldly walked onto the The Wendy Williams Show proud and unashamed, wearing a nude Spanx one-piece bodysuit as outerwear.
During the girl chat sit-down, a stunned Williams asked Braxton “where is your dress?”
Braxton, who was dismissed in 2016 as an original host of the Emmy Award-winning daytime talk show The Real, revealed to Williams her reason for wearing the shapewear.
“Well, here’s the thing. Today, marks my birthday,” Braxton said. Though is not Braxton’s official day she was born, Braxton did however clarify that it will be the very last day that she will be wearing Spanx for life, as she is now completely “done.”
The mother to one, son Logan Herbert, went on the say that she can’t go on with what she describes as an unhealthy lifestyle. “Period. I’m done,” she continued. “Everybody talking about Hot Girl Summer, I’m lying, I had a Warm Girl Summer with a filter. I’m not doing that no more, I can’t. My stomach is having several seats on my lap. I can’t live my life like this.”
The 42-year old is challenging herself -- and others who feels like she does -- to a 30-Day health challenge. “I gotta feel physically amazing to be mentally amazing, and I’m not there.
“But the heaviest food comes in the winter,” Williams said. Wendy talks about being “skinny in spring and summer and gaining about 15 pounds...” assuming that most women get heavier in the fall and winter. But before the talk show host could finish her sentence, Braxton cuts her off by saying, “Yeah, but under my clothes I want to feel amazing. And I want to feel amazing about myself no matter what.”
Putting back the pieces to a healthier self, the Pieces songstress continues, “just like when I cut my hair, I did it because I wanted to fall in love with myself. Why can’t I fall in love with my body? Why can’t I fall in love with my mind?”
As a Tamartian fan, I can totally understand where she is coming from. “When you don’t feel good physically, your mind is all jacked up.”
Coming out onto the stage completely uncovered (in a sense) and laying it all on the line is something I can truly respect in a person.
Imagine having the audacity to be fearless and brave in a world that is so judgemental -- that is the type of person who is on the move and ready to take on the world, face-forward.
