In tonight’s episode of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values, Tamar Braxton is forced to face the possibility of life without her beloved husband, Vince Herbert, who is stricken with a deadly illness. As you know, Vince was diagnosed with a pulmonary emboli — a blood clot in his lung which traveled from his leg (DVT).

Tamar, who is usually fiery and outspoken, is reduced to tears as she opens up about the emotional toll of Vince’s serious illness.

Despite her grief, I couldn’t help but notice that Tamar’s face appears to be dry — as in, no actual tears fall. I’m a stickler about fake tears, especially in reality shows. I could be wrong. But something tells me that this scene was filmed just recently.

Watch the video clip after the break.
