Tamar Braxton isn’t letting her exit from The Real bring her down.
Less than two weeks after it was announced the 39-year-old would be leaving the daytime talk show “to concentrate on her solo career,” after serving as one of its original co-hosts since the show’s 2013 debut, the singer/TV personality is addressing her abrupt departure.
On Thursday’s Braxton Family Values, Tamar is seen breaking down crying while her sister, Toni, consoles her as she attempts to make sense of what led to her sudden exit from The Real.
Tamar reveals that it was her husband and manager, Vincent Herbert, who was the one to break the news to her. As she tells it, Tamar says Vince was told her ill-timed departure from the show was apparently due to her not getting along “with the castmates.”
“I don’t understand. I could probably understand more if I know that I did something but I don’t know what I did, you know?” a hysterical Tamar tells her sister. “Everything just feels like a loss for me. This whole year sucked a**!”
“I just feel like the rug is pulled out from under me, from everything that I loved, from everything that I do,” Tamar said, before detailing her tough year -- from her album struggles to her exit from Dancing With the Stars due to illness. “Then this? Really?!”
“I feel disrespected. I feel let down. It’s never been a conversation. There hasn’t been a conversation about, ‘OK we don’t like the way things are going,’” Tamar later says. “I guess I’m OK with change, but can we respect each other in that change? Can I get that?”
Tamar also appeared on the Steve Harvey Morning Show on Thursday, where he revealed that he was partnering with her for a new show.
“We think she would make a great game show host. We think she would make a great talk show host. We think she’s in line to produce a number of series,” Harvey said. “We are proud to announce today that Tamar Braxton is already on her feet.”
Braxton Family Values airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on WE tv.
