She is actually prettier brown, I wish I was that color I am a yellow brown. I always wanted to be darker.
i never did like this broad!
DUNN GIVE A FCUK...SHE'S ONE OF THE HOTTEST OUT THERE
AND MTO CAN TURN ANYTHING INTO A STORY...WHO EDITS THESE BS...
AS LONG AS SHE DOESN'T LOOK LIKE SAMMY SOSA!!!
I don't give a ***.*** if she rolled in mud she'd still be attractive
She doesn't look bleached, but she looks like she can't pick out the right color foundation. And she still rocking that wack *** baby hair.
I think it's the lighting because ppl can actually play around with all these little fun things in there computers and make themselves appear lighter or darker. She looks the same accept on the yesterday picture she was wearing a lot of blush she looks the same.
she still looks good and that was nine years ago. u kno things like makeup and lighting make a dif to
she tryna get them good roles in hollywood SMH
Its the make up!
Don't know don't care don't like her
das obviously make-up and/or lighting. come on mto.
Wrong color foundation... y'all are stupid!
A lot of stars have gotten gradually lighter over the years... Rihanna, Kerri Hilson, Beyonce, Trina... everyone is doing it.
tragic if she really had to bleach her skin
is this her way of saying she'd rather not be black?
Lovez Tamala but she needs to quit while she's ahead !!!
God bless your stupid little hearts MTO! Did it ever occur to you that maybe she had a tan in one of the pics and not the other?
Get a better story please. Thank you.
Actually it's not impossible to get lighter over the years .. I've gotten much lighter since 2001 and I don't bleach.
But she does look a bit pinkish.
Different lighting and makeup...
@ tjtrae1: LOL Nasty...
WOW. IT'S JUST THE LIGHTING. NOT HER LIGHTENING. NEXT.
No, it's either bad make-up choice, bad lighting or both. No bleaching.
I NOTICED THAT IN A PIC THE OTHER WEEK.....*** HOLLYWOOD...
@real roxanne u so intimatated by REAL black women LOL with good reason tho NOBODY LIKES INSECURE PEOPLE... There are four natural races do u know what you are?
Looks like a combo of bad lighting as well as too light of a foundation to me Fred lol.
However,hope it's not true because Tamala to me is just so *** pretty with a great body.
It's just the lighting.
This is really REACHING, mto. The girl is wearing a shade of makeup that is too light for her skin tone. Nothing more, nothing less. Stop trying to make non-stories into stories. SMH @ MTO...y'all are really going downhill.
This could just be the lighting, or it could be the time of the year the pic was taken. The 2001 pic was most likely taken in the summer (when ppl get tanned) judging by the top she has on, & the pic taken yesterday is still in the winter. I don't think she's bleaching her skin.
Her skin, not mine.
She looks like she is bleaching. Her skin has a pink tint to it, that happens when people bleach their skin.
Typical self hating hollywierd ***. nothing to see here.
She gotta lotta stuff done to herself(nose, breasts, lips, etc)
She is definitley bleaching her skin.
that aint bleach. just make up
um thats bad make up smh
*** when mto featured a story of sammy sosa and some africans bleaching their skin it was such an uproar from black americans and over 700 plus comments.....now because she is a black female and becuase yall say she is cute, its okay to bleach her skin?...WHY THE DOUBLE STANDARD? AND WHO IS SHE ANYWAYS?
she's been hanging around Lil Kim
UM DUH!! BUT KIM WHITLEY DID SLAP THE BLACK OFF HER *** AWHILE BACK!! "ACT LIKE YOU KNOW MTO"!
NO GIRL KEEP THAT BEAUTIFUL CARAMEL BROWN COLOR.
Look better before.
Smh@ ppl sayin its make up. I doubt she put make up on her whole body ( her face *** arm are the same color). And light doesn't make u PINK it just makes u lighter. Smh people always alter themselves to fit sumone else description of beauty.
There's no such thing as bleaching your skin.
WOWWWWW you guys are always reaching! WTF LMAO! Whats the matter you guys didn't have anything good to report on so you're just making *** up today?
Fred some heads need to roll for this
She always reminds me of Chili.
And you beaches become more "golden" and "bronze" and "Tan" by the minute. FALL BACK HATERS, BLACK WOMEN ARE B E A U T I F U L. get over it.
She Still Cutee.....Themm Comments Just Ain't . I Hopee It Isn't Truee ..?
I don't think she's bleaching... MTO, you all are reaching in this post.
and she is...?
Make-Up or Lightinq? (Pick One)
HMMM??? YEAH THAT LOOKS KINDDA SHADY!
Et tu, Brutus?
I can't be sure about this because I consider myself a brown skinned girl about her complexion. But I have some pics wher I would call myself dark skin. And then I hav some where I look carmal. So I don't kno I think it depends on the season and the lighting when taking the pic.
...Bad lighting and poor foundation choice...Leave Tamela alone...
I agree with everyone else, mismatched foundation and unflattering lighting.
These haters hate to see B E A U T I F U L black women, period. The chic is G O R G E O U S and always has been. FALL BACK HATERS!!!! KNOWING THEY'VE HAD EVERY P R O C E D U R E known to man!!! next
She looks like she had a tan in the other photo. I think it is combination of make-up and lighting.
LITTLE THING CALLED MAKEUP MTO!!
that's makeup, leave my baby alone
@NegritaTanRica SHE SILL ROCKING THAT WACK *** BABY HAIR
WHATS SO WACK ABOUT BABYHAIRS HERS DEF LOOKS CUTE ON HER!! JUST BECAUSE A GIRLY GOT SOME EXTRA HAIRS TO CURL UP DONT HATE UR WEAVE PROLLY DONE ATE OUT ALL YOUR BABYHAIRS
This woman is beautiful in everyday.. she doesn't get the top roles because Europeans want us to be fat, ugly or both.
SHES CUTE...! MTO ALWAYS TRYNA START SUM SH*T!!!!
SHE STILL LOOKIN GOOD!!!!!!!!!!! STOP HATIN ON PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks like different lighting and foundation to me MTO. She reminds me of an attractive Taraji P Henson
Hollywood hates cute black women
she looks the same to me and its probably the lighting you're really reaching mto.
Most of them bleach their skin. How shameful. To name a few Trina, Tyra, Michelle Williams. Be proud of your dark beautiful skin fools. Look at Gabby Union, dark and lovely.
Makeup and lighting
Looks like its different lighting to me.............
wow, some MTO bloggers would believe the sky is being sucked into a vortex if MTO posted a story on it.........
She appears to have on bronzer in the supposed older pic which depending on how much apply can make skin the skin appear darker.......
Maybe...but she still looks cute.
LOOKS LIKE BLEACH TO ME
SHE LOOKS BEAUTIFUL.............
She cute and aside from the lighting, everything else looks the same.
Her scalp is darker than the rest of her body. She got the wrong bleaching system...should have asked her dermatologist for the Metathione/Glutathione pills that *** pigmentation from the inside out creating one complete even skin tone as opposed to topical solution. At least this is my understanding of the way black celebs and other people of color are doing it nowadays.
Gotta be the makeup.. I would dig her out regardless.. She is wearing way too much makeup though.
[SPAM] y'all are dumber than a box of rocks! It's obviously the lighting and make up - GTFOH must be a slow news day
why u do that girl? you did'nt need it!
LIGHTING AND MAKE UP FOOLS
She is cute.
*** up MTO.
no shes god lol... always been prett. its just make up *** lighting
IF TRUE...WHY? HER SKIN TONE IS BEAUTIFUL...SMH
ITS OBVIOUSLY DIFFERENT LIGHTING, SHE IS LOOKN OL AS HECK THO.
Where is the news???
yeah she is getting lighter.I hope she not bleaching her skin she should love her skin
skin bleaching? what dumb *** wrote this ***?!
I think it's the lighting. I agree with others here that your skin can lighten over time, depending on how much exposure to the sun you get. SN: I think she may have had her breasts done. I remember her being a little flat-chested in Booty Call.
dang she tryna be like yall know who...i want disrespect him bcus he kno longer here and bcus i was a fan of his music
MAYBE IT'S THE LIGHTING OR THE MAKEUP
Well if happen sometimes but who knows only later can tell
its the lighting and the makeup
come on MTO its called Make-up
Follow me on twitter.com/Ms_Kay Jay
5 letters r.e.a.c.h i am the same complexion as her and i can put up 5 photos where my shade looks completely diff bcus of lighting!!!!mto since yll have brown skin staff fy1 pics can make us appear from anywhere to bright light to dark skin so stfu lol still funny the way yall r reaching
I think it's makeup and lighting. Was the picture on the right taken in the summer or on vacation on an island? I see coworkers in my office that are dark in the summer but come winter time look totally different due to the winter weather and less exposure to the sun.
She's still pretty
fred and dem always thinkin somebody bleaching themselves
so what she still cute
*** *** shes so pretty
Self LOVE is all we need.
Just her makeup and bad lighting!
Just the light and makeup....silly azz MTO!
Why did they even invent this skin bleaching?!!!
This ignorant WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!
makeup is one thing bleaching is a whole other!!
MTO, DOES ANYONE THERE ACTUALLY LIKE BLACK PEOPLE? THERE'S NEVER A POSITIVE COMMENT OR STORY POSTED ON HERE. WHY DOES SHE HAVE TO BE BLEACHING HER SKIN? DIFFERENT LIGHTING, DIFFERENT SEASONS, AND MAKE-UP.
That's sad lame *** ho
just looks like different lighting to me
i dont think so but idk
Wow that sucks.
Y'all are *** dumb. Its more den obvious dat her make up was too dark on da first pic and she looks da same color on da rest of dem so wtf are y'all talkin bout mto? *** y'all need to find betta topics
She kinda look like Ruby Dee.
Probably nothing more than flash from the bright lights & cameras. MTO, stop tryin' ta start *** over nothin'!
She should sue this dumb *** site! ARE YOU ALL FOREAL??? YOU CAN ***CLEARLY*** SEE IT IS MAKE-UP. LOOK AT THE PIC OF HER IN THE GREEN DRESS AND THE ONE IN THE GRAY COAT...
SEE HER HAIRLINE ALL AROUND HER EDGES?? THAT IS HER NATURAL COLOR. SHE DIDNT BLEND THE MAKEUP ALL THE WAY UP AND THUS, YOU CAN SEE HER TRUE PIGMENT.
HER MAKEUP IS TOO LIGHT, THERE IS NO BLEACH INVOLVED. JUST BAD FOUNDATION CHOICE.
Seriously that's obviosly make-up and different lighting yo mto stop lyingg on people lol
SMFH @ PEOPLE USING THE MAKE-UP EXCUSE!!!
I have met black women that bleached their skin and they always get that pink tint to their skin after a certain period of time.
Black people make up to many excuses rather then just addressing the issue.
Why would she have pink makeup all over her body? are you people that delusional? lmfao smfh, this woman has been in hollywierd far to long and she is desperate to fit into white dominance. That is why she is bleaching her skin.
Call *** how it is, don't make up excuses for this woman.
I'm a big fan of hers. Luv ya Tam!
MTO, and the new veneers on her teeth. She looks a little like Debbie Allen now, but still BEAUTIFUL and SUPER TALENTED.
NOPE ITS MAKEUP LOOK AT HER HAIRLINE ITS STILL DARKER
Why would she put make up to make herself look white? Can someone please tell me, why?
It's called make-up and lighting...I swear I feel my IQ drop every time I'm on this site...fuggin' idiots...
LOOKS LIKE MAKEUP TO ME OR MAYBE SHE JUST HAVEN'T BEEN IN THE SUN THAT MUCH LATELY
MTO...it's make-up and lighting! Stop hating on people that appears to be so-called normal....SMH at you!
not necessarily. its called staying out the sun and bein cold all the time.
unfortunetly, all the celebrities is doing it. Oprah, Diana Ross, Rihanna of course, Gabrielle Union, Meagon good, Janet Jackson, Latoya Jackson, the list goes on and on..It is no big surprise..
if she is bleaching her skin..she's a got *** fool. i always thought she was a very attractive sista.
Shes not bleaching her *** skin... Puhleeez
I doubt she bleaching, always an attractive black sister. @1darKmeat, lol at that last comment is it that bad?
sad,I guess black women r getting tired of being black people..thanks vanessa williams with your proactive. They need to name it pro-white, get rid of all the black spots and dark blemish.africa is aids central and black men and black women hate each other. (extinction)
She looks the same
BYTCHES WANA BE MY COLOR.......
BUT YOU CANT BE MY COLOR
Hmmm, Idk if she is or not, but I know that she is still so *** cute!!! Looks like she hasn't aged that much since 2001.
I know y'all know about make up.....the way y'all MAKE UP sh!t!!
LMAOOOO! Dude you are too funny!
Hmm. Looks like the work of Lil Kim's makeup artist....smh
She's probably not bleaching but y would anyone wanna bleach the broads that be bleaching look extremely ashy not a good look :-/
She does look a little lighter.
at least she still prett unlike sum people <lil kim>
LoL, get a liFe MTOOOOO
PROBABLY DIFFERENT KIND OF CAM, LIGHTING *** MAKE UP...NOT BLEACHING MTO!
I think it is the makeup, camera and the lighting. Compare the white in the top two photos. One is bright and one is muted. That is the lighting and the camera. Different cameras have different sensors which handle color differently. I used to model.
She's looking a little lil kimish...
Its makeup... No duh MTO...
Why are you guys always going in on Lil Kim. Lil Kim must have did something right because she has been reincarnated and is popular again by the way of Nicki Minaj.
No one says anything when half of non black chicks yall hype use a gallons of dark makeup and a ton of spray tan. So please get off the black chicks. Hating on cute black women is so LAME MTO. She has one of the best bodies in showbiz too.
Doubt if shes bleaching...Shes a cute gyrl
Notice she bleached her teeth as well.
DEM AH BLEEEACH. DEM AH BLEACH OUT DEM SKIN. DEM AH BLEEEEACH, FI LOOK LIKE A BROWNING...sad sad sad...
Is it me or does she look like kiki palmer in the second picture? Lmao.
That's so stupid, you just caught her between seasons. Plus Make up. Check her in August...
what a shame
its just the lighting
Nah, it the lighting. She's too down for that foolishness!
MTO, huge disappointment. It's the lighting. Ya'll know blacks have problems with lighting
I guess if ya wanna work in "HOLLYWOOD", ya gotta lighten up....
loving my brown skin baby
she looks the same color in all the pic, yall trippin
It's called lighting MTO. Our skin change color due to seasonal changes like everybody else. Not every black person bleaching this skin because they appear lighter sometimes. SMH.
you're REEEEAAAAAALLLLY stretching, mto!
Ain't that much "difference in lighting" in the world. Looking like Sammy Sosa's lil sis.
it's call WINTER!
like black people's complexions don't change...idiots
sista girl.. stick 2 ya roots..
its called make up or powder people
SO WHAT! whats the big deal about that? Whtever makes a person more happy or satisfied with him or her self...OH WELL!
She looks great, with lighter or darker skin.
Pretty nonetheless. But yeah, I do get a Lil Kim vibe from this, but idk.
She's still pretty to me tambien. I hope she's not doing anything to make herself get lighter.
maybe she had a tan in one pic. come on now..... she looks like she has on the wrong color makeup or the lighting is brighter. i'm dark skinned but in a bright light i appear light skinned.
BLACK PEOPLE DO GET LIGHTER *** THE WINTER TIME MTO
