Tamar Braxton may be known for hitting all the right notes but she can also turn a phrase. Anyone who watches her two WE tv reality shows, "Braxton Family Values" and "Tamar and Vince," knows that the youngest Braxton is a scene stealer largely thanks to her made for TV personality and her quick-witted responses. Ahead of her Saturday "Love and War" tour stop at Iron City, here are just a few of her famous catchphrases:
"You tried it!"
Usually used immediately after someone throws some unnecessary shade, "you tried it" is the best way to let the offender know that their sneaky brand of criticism was noted and won't be forgotten.
Braxton is a true diva to the core, so much so that she refers to herself in the third person. She often calls herself "she" or "her." Watch her below starting at 0:53.

"Get your life!"
Another one of her most famous phrases is "get your life," which basically is a way of letting someone know that they need to correct their behavior or get their life together—you know, without the extra word.
In a clip from "Anderson Live," she explains how she uses it. "When somebody's really out of pocket...Girl, get your life," she said. "Nobody believes your story." Watch below.

"Have several seats"
"Have several seats" derives from the phrase "have a seat." It can be used to either shut someone up or let them that their doing what is called "the most," which is always a touch too much. One could even take it up a notch and ask the person they're in opposition with to "have a stadium of seats." It's even more effective.
"Dot com"
No, Braxton isn't referring to her latest domain name when she adds "dot com" to the end of the things she says. Think of it as extra grammatical flair at the end of a sentence. It's just a way to put emphasis on whatever she's saying, just another way to drive her point home.
