Tamar Braxton, Jurnee Smollett and Kevin Hart and among The YBFers who've added their names to new payrolls.  Find out about their new gigs inside....

According to the Epic Records website, Tamar Braxton has joined their payroll and roster and  has inked a record deal with the label.  Though there hasn't been an official word from Epic or Tamar about the deal, she's clearly listed on their website as one of their artists.  And since there's no photo to accompany her name, we guess she hasn't gone on her first label-funded photoshoot yet.  

And with the success of her "Love and War" single, we're sure the label has her working very hard to put out a product soon.  One interesting note, her single (which had 84,000 downloads) was removed from iTunes only to reappear under the Epic Records banner.  

Congrats Tamar!


And in tv gigs......

Jurnee Smollet-Bell, who's currently starring in Tyler Perry’s flick Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor (March 29), will be starring in the new season of HBO's "True Blood."  She tweeted a photo from the set with the caption: "Time to get to work ...@HBOTrueBlood #BonTemps #TrueBloodSeason6"....

According to Deadline, Jurnee will be a series regular.  She'll play Nicole Wright, a wide-eye character"who is not concerned with money and more concerned with the common good and doing what’s right." So we guess she won't be playing a vampire....

Kevin Hart has signed on for a second season of "RHOH" on BET.  And since the show was a breakout success for the network, we're sure his paycheck received a significant upgrade.  He tweeted,

In a press release about the renewal, BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials, Stephen Hill, said,

“When we launched this series in January, we knew our audience would have as much fun watching it as we had making it, and since it has been on the air, fans have voiced on social media that they want more. So this was a pretty simple decision: ‘Hey! Let’s make more! We are beyond thrilled that Kevin Hart and the stellar Husbands will be back bickering and back-biting for another season on BET.”


Meanwhile, Kevin's next comedy film, "Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain" hits theaters July 3, 2013.  Congrats Kevin!
