Not only did Tamar make history, but she broke the “First to Enter” curse. If you are not a Celebrity Big Brother fan, then you should know that the curse is that the first person to enter the Big Brother house never wins.

Tamar took to Instagram to celebrate her win, the singer shared a short clip of the tremendous moment.

‘And now I get to buy my baby a house. Thank you all!” Tamar expressed in her captions.
