toni-braxton.jpgNow that the first season of WeTV's "Braxton Family Values" has wrapped up, Tamar Braxton (Toni's little sis) has made quite a name for herself... and she didn't need any actual talent to do it.  "I waited my whole entire life to have a career and to be noticed and accepted as Tamar," she tells BET. "I can't lie and say it doesn't feel good for people to accept who you really are. No hit records, no gimmicks, no 'Playboy,' nothing -- just me being who I am and people accepting who I am. It's a great feeling."

Now that they're filming Season 2, Braxton is trying to dial back her exuberant personality a bit. "I'm going to try to tone it down a little bit [for season two] but I'm working on it. In the first season people would say to me, 'You're popping off on your sister,' or 'You're judging your sister,' and it wasn't that," she says. "I just feel like they deserve men who appreciate that. And at the time, I didn't think any of them did.  So I don't take back anything I said."

Braxton would also like to make it clear that the rumors about her plastic surgery have been greatly exaggerated.

"I would like to say I did not have series of work done. I just had my nose done. These are my lips. Everybody forgets we have full lips -- I'm a Black girl, sorry," she says. "It's not my fault that I'm light-skinned and, no, I don't bleach [my skin]. But don't get it twisted; I would if I wanted to. I do wear weaves and I do wear wigs. That's where I'm at with it, thank you."
