But while she had kept her career in shape, Bledsoe realized she wasn’t faring as well with her own body. In 2009 she went on VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club and shed 19 lbs. “For me, what works best is to try to eat healthy and not worry about the scale,” says Bledsoe, a vegetarian who has kept off the weight she lost.
One of the things that keeps fan raving about Tempestt is her beautiful natural hair she’s rocked throughout the ages.
She says, “I’ve worn my hair completely Natural for over 10 years..I think women of color need to learn how to handle their natural state because it’s not something we’ve been culturally encouraged to do for a long time.”
“I shampoo my hair using a strong cleansing shampoo and follow up with a Creme of Nature shampoo because it moisturizes my hair doesn’t strip its natural oils… I also use the Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask because I love deep conditioning my hair.”
