This poor girl! No one really knew what happened when Tamar Braxton got reportedly fired from ‘The Real’ on May 22 — but on her WE TV show, ‘Braxton Family Values,’ she’s revealing that it really did come out of nowhere, and she felt totally disrespected.
The news that Tamar Braxton amicably left the show looks pretty false. In two new previews for Braxton Family Values, we watch her tell her sister Toni the shocking news of her firing; at first she’s very calm, cool and collected but gets excessively more and more emotional and ends up completely breaking down! Watch the emotional clips here.
“I really really really love my position at The Real. It was really more about me being myself and expressing my life stories and what I’ve been thru in life with a bunch of ladies who I loved and really truly genuinely respected,” she said on the episode right after telling her sister she was fired and that someone claimed she didn’t get along with the girls or the production team.
Toni was super shocked too, adding “they were just here” about the girls.
“I’m so humiliated. It’s just not right,” Tamar said crying. “I don’t understand. I could probably understand more if I knew that I did something, but I don’t know what I did… Everything just feels like a loss for me. This whole year sucks ass. everything that I love just got pulled from under me.” She goes on to list the difficulties she had — creating an album, not having time for a press tour, the album not doing so well, and her DWTS health scare.
“I feel disrespected. I feel let down. I feel disregarded because it’s never been a conversation,” she said. “There hasn’t been a conversation about, ‘Ok we don’t like the way things are going.’ I mean, I guess I’m ok with change, but can we respect each other in the change? Can I get that?” Well yes, you should be able to. Watch the first part of the clip above, and the second below.
Following the news that she was fired, she posted a pic Toni on Instagram and we told you that she’d been her rock through all of this. “Toni’s been in the business since dinosaurs roamed the earth and told Tamar that people get fired and back stabbed in this business every hour, on the hour,” an insider close to the family told HollywoodLife.com. “She’s really leaning on her sisters and the family during this time. But she’s not just sitting around crying on her sisters shoulders — she and her sisters are brainstorming ways to get back at [The Real]. Tamar is fierce, and she will not be played like this and just let it go.”
Braxton Family Values airs at 9PM tonight on WEtv.
