• Tamar Braxton says her sister Toni insists she wear flats during her pregnancy. “She has tried to get me flats. I refuse. I’m like, ‘No,'” said Braxton. The first-time mother is keeping the sex of her baby a secret until the end of the summer. As for her nursery, she’s yet to begin decorating it. “I am an over-the-top person, so my baby’s nursery will be over-the-top too,” said Braxton. “But we are moving so we haven’t started yet.” [People]
