Those who watched Tamar Braxton on The Real or Braxton Family Values know that the singer is fond of blurting out that word whenever she questions the authenticity of a particular statement. So how often does Braxton plan to yell it while an inhabitant of the Celebrity Big Brother house?

“150 zillion times,” says Braxton. “’Cause somebody’s always gonna lie.” If it sounds like Tamar is expecting drama, she is. But the reality TV veteran has a plan on how to deal with any drama that breaks out in the house. Her plan? “Go to sleep,” she says. “I’m going to go to sleep when there’s drama so my name is not in the mix. ‘Cause even if I’m in the room and don’t say nothing, it’s just “Tamar said….” So I’m going to go to bed.”

Well, that doesn’t sound like particularly edge-of-your-seat television. But we also have a feeling that Tamar won’t be able to help herself once the season premieres tonight on CBS, especially when she talks about wanting to “soak up as much as I can and enjoy my experience and being on my favorite show on the whole wide world.”

As for whether she thinks she’s going to win, Braxton tells us “I don’t want to put that kind of pressure on me and say I’m going to win Big Brother. I feel like like I’m going to come in around third or second or something.” To which we say… LIES!
