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