Tamar Braxton has made headlines for weeks; after news surfaced she would not return to The Real for season 3. Braxton took a brief hiatus from social media and had not officially addressed the departure from the show. She finally broke her silence on The Steve Harvey Morning Show today (June 2nd).
Steve Harvey asked her the questions everyone wanted answers to; did she have any idea she would be let go or was she given a reason?
Braxton explained that her husband, Vince Herbert, called The Real about glam for the Essence festival and was informed she was no longer a part of the panel.
Tamar said, “For this to come out of the blue, this was astonishing to be honest.”
She goes on to say she did not reach out for an explanation for why she was let go, but Vince did as well as her agent and lawyer. According to Braxton, no one has contacted her. Tamar said it still bothers her that she doesn’t know why she was fired. But fans are not convinced she was clueless. They took to twitter during the interview posting comments of disbelief.
Despite the situation, she remains positive.
“This is not a setback, it’s a setup. You have to speak positivity over your life and move forward,” said Tamar.
Moving forward is exactly what she is doing. Later in the show, Harvey announced that he signed Tamar to his company to produce a talk show.
“We are proud to announce that 112th Street Productions…my production company, East 112th Production has just signed Tamar Braxton to produce a talk show, TV series with Tamar Braxton,” said the talk show host.
The two didn’t reveal any more details about the upcoming show, but the vagueness surely will build up anticipation.
Tamar’s reaction to being fired from The Real doesn’t end on Harvey’s radio show. Her reaction was captured by the camera crew of Braxton Family Values and will be aired tonight. The episode will pick up two hours after she received the news and how her sisters supported her through the tough time.
A lot has happened to Tamar in the last year, including a health scare. It seems Tamar has landed on her feet. The breakout star of Braxton Family Values journey toward superstardom continues on.
