Tamar Braxton is known for her catchphrases, and apparently the gift of gab runs in the family. Braxton stopped by Big Morning Buzz Live today to chat about her 16-month-old son Logan, and how she plans on keeping him a “mama’s boy” for as long as possible.
After gushing about her little man, today’s guest joined host Nick Lachey for a round of “Rhyme Time.” Playing off the title of one of Braxton’s reality shows, Tamar & Vince, our Bmbl host shouted out clues to words that rhyme with her husband’s name (Vince). How many correct guesses did Braxton make in 60 seconds? Watch the video above to find out.
In addition to being a reality star and co-host of the weekday talk show The Real, Braxton is fully rooted in the music business. She recently finished headlining the tour for her 2013 LP, Love And War, after opening »

Love and war over the power of literature versus painting take center stage in Fred Schepisi’s witty romantic drama, Words and Pictures, opening in theaters May 23rd. Battle lines are drawn when a prep school English teacher and one-time literary star Jack Marcus (Clive Owen) challenges a new teacher and once celebrated abstract painter Dina Delsanto (Juliette Binoche) to disprove his conviction that the art of the written word trumps the visual arts in its ability to convey meaning, ideas, and emotion. The declaration of war galvanizes their students, but as Marcus and Delsanto square off, they suddenly realize they may have met their match. In an exclusive interview, Schepisi talked about the appeal of Gerald Dipego’s complex screenplay, the ways it touches on the impact of today’s technology and our obsession with social media, how he landed Owen and Binoche in the lead roles, the emotional »

In Soviet Russia, movie review You – but since we’re here in the good ol’ Us of A, I’ll be the one determining if Stalingrad is Russia’s spiritual equivalent to Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan. Credit director Fedor Bondarchuk with creating the first Russian film to be shot in 3D and IMAX 3D, as his efforts translated into the highest grossing box-office numbers in Russian history, but leave it to an American film critic to determine if Fedor actually did right by the Motherland. Come comrades, grab your sickle and your finest bottle of Popov – we’ve got a two hour Russian war epic to discuss that’s full of explosions, emotions, gunfire and heartbreak. Love and war are synonymous, no?
The battle of Stalingrad – a bloody, sacrificial battle during World War II that pitted a stubborn Adolf Hilter against a heroic Russian army refusing to budge. »

Caesar, partnered with Imogene Coca, is credited with breaking ripe comedic ground with the 90-minute live program: It didn’t rely on vaudeville or standup-inspired material but rather on long skits and sketches written by an impressive roster of comedy writers including Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart, Lucille Kallen and Mel Tolkin.
“Your Show of Shows” was “different from other programs of its time because its humor was aimed at truth,” Simon once observed. “Other television shows would present situations with farcical characters; we would put real-life people into identifiable situations.”
