Tamar Braxton won Celebrity Big Brother and the $250,000 grand prize.

The 41-year-old singer faced former NFL star Ricky Williams, 41, who won both of the Head of Household challenges during the two-hour live finale on CBS.

Tamar, with daisies in her blonde wig, looked in complete disbelief, her chest beating noticeably, as the votes from the housemates all went her way – throwing her hand over her face when she got the fifth vote need to secure the win.
She then almost fell over as she ran out to the studio while gold confetti fired into the air.

After the contestants hugged her, Tamar's five-year-old son Logan Vincent Herbert rushed up and briefly knocked her down as she tried to pick him up.
'I love you so much,' she told him repeatedly, before getting more shock that the voting had been unanimous, the first time since Big Brother's season 10.

'I'm so grateful, thank you guys so much,' she sobbed. 'I feel so amazing. I feel grateful to God and thank my family. And thank you guys for just being my lifelong friends.

Now I get to buy my baby a house,' she said, still hugging Logan.

Ricky's wife Linnea Miron jumped into his arms as he walked out as the runner-up, getting $50,000.

Comedian Tom Green, 47, was then surprised with a check for $25,000 after being voted the viewers' favorite.
Tamar earlier insisted the show turned into a 'spiritual journey' for her – and joked about how she 'played this game to the best of my ability with a limited amount of lying – although I did a little bit.'

She then talked about getting 'the rug pulled from under' her in life, losing her job, husband, home and friends, adding: 'I even almost lost my life.'

'In the midst of all the turmoil and trouble I made a promise to myself, and that was to never give up on myself and to always be kind.

'And so I'm asking you all to be kind to this girl who is trying to get on her feet and just be the best person that I can be,' she told her housemates, raising a laugh when she said she was nervous because she's 'so shy.'
