After interviewing first lady Michelle Obama about higher education, Grammy nominated singer Tamar Braxton says at 38, she's going to enroll in college.
Braxton interviewed Obama with her fellow co-hosts of "The Real," Adrian Bailon, Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Jeannie Mai for an episode about the "Better Make Room" campaign that aired last Tuesday. The campaign is part of Obama's initiative called "Reach Higher," which seeks to inspire students to pursue higher education.

After the school placed Hawkins on administrative leave on Dec. 15 and claimed that she appears to have violated the school's statement of faith by posting on Facebook that Muslims and Christians worship the same God, Hawkins submitted a four-page theological statement defending her assertion two days later at the request of Wheaton Provost Stanton Jones.
The statement that Hawkins' provided, however, did not ease the concerns of Jones, who wanted further discussion to take place on her theological views before the school could reinstate her.
