Nope, this wasn’t a wedding. Altough it look like Althea thought it might be. Former “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Althea Heart was surprised by her friend Tamar Braxton and her man Benzino with a special dinner to celebrate her birthday last night. Peep the birthday and friends, plus find out what Benzino gifted her inside…
“Braxton Family Values” star and singer Tamar Braxton put together a birthday dinner surprise for her friend/former “LAHH ATL” star Althea Heart with help from Althea’s fiancé (and former reality star) Benzino.
If you haven’t heard, Benzino and his chick were axed from the VH1 series after that explosive brawl with co-stars Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J on the last reunion episode. Following their infamous showdown, Althea pressed charges against Joseline. In a video deposition, Joseline tried to cover her a** by saying the show is scripted.
But, chick didn’t let the drama in her life keep her from having one of the best birthdays yet.
“The Real” co-host Tamar Braxton, her husband Vince Herbert and Benzino teamed up to throw a private birthday dinner for the birthday girl. And it appears she really enjoyed herself. Thi Thi and Tamar posed it up for a few flicks, where Althea captioned, “She my big sister to me and I look up to her .. Thank you for surprising me Tay Tay & #Vince @tamar.and.vince @tamarbraxtonher Her #thithi#hbd”
Of course, the #1 man in her life was right by her side to celebrate:
And he came bearing expensive gifts:
We hear Zino gifted his lady with a blinged out Avian Jewelers necklace. And partygoers were overheard saying it set him back a few grand. During an emotional speech to her fam and friends she said, “I can’t thank you all enough for helping me share this special birthday.Tamar, thank you for coming. You always have my back and I love you for it.”
Along with celebrating her birthday, Althea also celebrated her upcoming “Controversy” EP, which is scheduled to drop at the end of the month.
How…sweet. Happy Birthday Althea!
