Tamar Braxton Exits ‘The Real’

Tamar Braxton has cut ties with “The Real.” On Sunday (May 22), the daytime talk show confirmed her departure with a statement, noting that the separation was “mutually decided.”

“‘The Real’ and Tamar Braxton have mutually decided that Tamar will not be continuing with the show for its upcoming third season,” read the statement. “She will be leaving in order to concentrate on her solo career. Everyone associated with ‘The Real’ appreciates Tamar’s efforts and the contributions she has made to the show’s success, and we wish her all the best for the future.”

Last night, the “Braxton Family Values” star shared a cryptic post on Instagram that some believe is connected to her exit from “The Real.”

“I love u all,” she wrote. “but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted ( not my man or my sisters) I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch (👀) and it’s not in good taste to tell you who…… but as #tamartians you are very smart and can figure things out on your own. But know that every one who smiles in your face is NOT your friend and is NOT cheering for you and will LIE and try and tear u down to TRY and dim your light. Thank GOD HE HOLDS MY FUTURE AND MY HAND!

“I am Tamar Braxton,” she continued. “And if you thought for 1 sec u played me…..In the late great prince and the amazing Beyoncé voice you PLAYED yourself😂 to God be the Glory and I will be taking a short break from ALL social media…until then yourself and WATCH YOUR BACK ( I put this picture up cause this is the embrace I got from my sister and best friend that she ALWAYS gives when she knows I’ve been had).”

However, Love B. Scott claims that the “Love and War” singer was actually fired from the show, based on a statement from an anonymous source. “Tamar Braxton just got fired from ‘The Real,'” an insider told them. “She wasn’t reading too well with the audience and sales people didn’t find her to be a good fit with advertisers. Also, production found her too difficult to deal with.”

Furthermore, the site claims that Tamar is not following her former co-hosts Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, Loni Love, or “The Real” on Twitter. However, she is still following Tamera Mowry-Housley.

Braxton was among the show’s original hosts upon its launch in 2013. No replacement has been named.
