Tamar Braxton‘s departure from ‘The Real’ continues to cause ripples that show no signs of cooling or calming.
Yesterday, the singer and media maven used two platforms to break her silence on the firing that rocked social media.
She appeared on the Steve Harvey Morning Show to discuss the matter and reveal that she’d signed a production deal with him to front her own talkshow. She also spoke about her axing on last night’s episode of ‘Braxton Family Values.’
In both instances, she claimed she was blindsided, vaguely hinted at being backstabbed by her co-hosts, and wasn’t the most endorsing of the show’s producers.
Her words have clearly rustled feathers at ‘The Real,’ because we’ve just received a statement from the show and it awaits below…
Preluding was the following:
In response to statements made by Tamar Braxton during recent interviews and appearances surrounding her departure from “The Real,” we felt compelled to correct some inaccuracies.
The email continued…
“Tamar Braxton’s contract was not renewed for reasons that will remain privileged and private, and that are between her and the Studio. However, we would like to make it crystal clear that Ms. Braxton’s departure from the show had nothing to do with her former co-hosts; any suggestion to the contrary unfairly tarnishes them. As always, we wish Tamar and Vince all the best.”
Given the direction this is heading, it’s clear the team over at ‘The Real’ are not here for mess. Should Tamar continue to tout her version of the story in the way she has been, one has to wonder if gag orders will be put in place?
