Tamar Braxton opens up about her disease

It got REAL on day time talk show, “The Real,” today. 
And Tamar and Tamera TAKE IT THERE. 
The five hosts spoke candidly about their insecurities and MUVA hosts Tamar Braxton and Tamera Mowry-Hously delve DEEP into the things that HAUNT THEM. 

MUVA Tamar, known for being vicacious, confident, and pretty much EVERYTHING… FOUGHT BACK TEARS as she shared that she suffers from a skin disease, Vitiligo. She SPILLS that her skin disorder, which causes de pigmentation of parts of the skin, is SO SEVERE that people mistake her for a WHITE WOMAN.
It’s so hard for me to talk about my insecurities so I always talk about “Oh I’m beat, I’m done.” And, you know, I talk about myself and I say it out loud so I can start to believe it. And I just carry that with me only because I have a skin disease called vitiligo and it’s so crazy that nobody believes it. Oh my God. And the reason why I won’t work with a whole bunch of makeup artists is because I don’t want other people to see it. And so I used to sit on my hands, ’cause it’s really bad on my hands, and it’s so funny that people think I bleach my skin because bleaching won’t take all my pigment. It’s so crazy. And I tan to try to hide it. And it’s so funny because I, just backstage, just today, and that’s why I’m so emotional, because I’m talking about it. Just today, somebody I haven’t seen in a while was like, “Oh my God, I was thinking… who is that white woman over there in the white? Oh that’s Tamar.” And I find myself always defending that I am who I am. And so for me, I just decided, you know what Tamar? You are going to accept yourself for who you are because either you’re going to like me for me or you’re not going to like me for me.
Tamera Mowry,  the actress who ROSE to success as half of the dynamic duo in the 90s show, “Sister, Sister” starring her and twin Tia, SPILLED that she was INSECURE about being the “goofy” twin.

Umm, well… I’m a twin, duh. Umm and a lot of the times, being a twin, you can have… God, I’m about to cry. I don’t want to cry. Dang it. Well, okay. I didn’t want to cry. I haven’t cried at all in a very long time and that was something I didn’t want to do. It does. I’ve never actually told you guys this. Um, being a twin people compare and they compare a lot, by default. It’s not their fault but sometimes, you know, they see two people and they either say, “Oh… She’s the sexy one or she’s the cute one. She’s the goofy one, she’s the sassy one.” Well, I was known as the goofy cute one. And I used to read our fan mail all the time and that’s what I used to get all the time when I was 16 years old and I kept it. Are y’all crying now too, Jesus. Well I kept it. So going to college, I carried that. I was like “Oh, the goofy cute one. I’m not the sexy one.” And guys would literally go, “Oh, you’re so goofy, you’re so goofy!” And I always thought it was a negative term cause all I wanted to be was sexy. I didn’t want to just be cute. So now, to this day, honestly, when people say, “Oh you’re so cute,” there’s a part of me that goes “ugh.” I’m 36 years old, I’m a grown woman, and I have to own that I can be sexy and not only that… Honestly, I wake up every single day and I question that and it doesn’t matter. My husband can be like, “Oh my God, you look so sexy,” and I hate that I always say, “Really? Really?” So I’m going to work through that…
Everybody’s got their SOMETHING

listen to your MUVA.
MUVA knows best.
