‘That Man Gonna Get Somebody’s Drawers’: Tamar Braxton Says She Gets Jada Pinkett Smith’s ‘Entanglement’ with August Alsina After Spending Time with Him on Reality Show

August Alsina has a certain je ne sais quoi about him that makes Tamar Braxton understand Jada Pinkett Smith’s entanglement with the R&B singer. 

In the two-hour series premiere of the rebooted 2000’s hit reality show “The Surreal Life,” Braxton was seen in her confessional speaking on Alsina after the cast dressed up for their group dinner.

While Alsina was introduced as his chosen character and strutted his outfit in front of his newfound cast mates, Braxton expressed the vibes she received from him stating, 

“August has this certain kind of real masculine, cool, sexy energy. Which is why I can understand the whole entanglement. I get it,” Braxton said.

That’s not the only time Braxton was shown admiring Alsina’s captivating energy. 

In one particular scene the cast — which includes other well-known celebrities such as Dennis Rodman, Frankie Muniz, and “Living Single” actress Kim Coles — was seated around their table intrigued by Alsina’s explanation for what he is offering during his time on the show. 


“I strive to offer and present a particular vibration and allow everybody else to kind of be able to tune their own frequency to it,” Alsina said.

As he was talking, Braxton was seen shaking her head before saying, “That man gonna get somebody’s drawers. I don’t know who.” 

The “Love and War” singer isn’t the only one who is fond of Alsina’s attractiveness. In the “I Luv This S–t” singer’s current Instagram post, fans were thirsting over him all throughout the comment section.

Fans can continue to watch the show every Monday at 9 p.m. Eastern on VH1.
