As the youngest and most vocal member of her family, Tamar Braxton is rarely at a loss for words on WE's "Braxton Family Values."
The backup singer was left speechless, however, during a recent Vulture interview in which she learned that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon had named their twins Monroe and Moroccan, with the latter being a tribute to a room in their house.
"I mean, my mouth is dropped. Like, whaaat?" Braxton said after several moments of silence. "Maybe she named her daughter Monroe after Marilyn, because I know she loves her. And, oh my God, really, that's what she named them?"
Still letting it sink in, Braxton added, "I'm not feeling that. But those are her kids, and maybe it's the initial shock, because I felt like I could potentially be her baby's godmother, 'cause I love her so much."
That said, Braxton admits she wouldn't want to be godmother to children named Monroe and Moroccan.
"Ehhh … no," she laughed. "I'm just in shock."
With her outspoken nature and affinity for using "dotcom" in a sentence (as in "I am not feeling this.com"), the youngest Braxton has been pegged as the breakout star of her family's reality show.
She's even launched a site to collect all of the zany URLs fans have come up with based on her catchphrase. Viewers will get to see more of the Braxtons, as WE has ordered a second season that will premiere in 2012.
