‘The Real’ Confirms Tamar Braxton Departure

Published: Sunday 22nd May 2016 by Sam

It’s officially curtains for Tamar Braxton‘s tenure on ‘The Real.’

Earlier today, news hit the wire that the outspoken singer and media personality had been let go from her panelist position on the daytime talker – a role she’s occupied since the show’s 2014 debut.

Now, the team behind the FOX hit have issued a statement.

Their words below…

“THE REAL and Tamar Braxton have mutually decided that Tamar will not be continuing with the show for its upcoming third season. 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.”

And there it is.

Debate will no doubt rage on about just how “mutual” the parting is –  especially given the “I’ve been stabbed in the back” spiel Tamar was touting today.

It’ll be all sorts  interesting to see what shape the show will take in its third season. Who’ll replace her?

Also, with a few more weeks to go before the climax of season 2, will Tamar make any more appearances in farewell capacity?

Your thoughts?

        Dear wrosy3
        Shut the F*** UP! Do you know how dumb you sound?

      • coockiness May 22, 2016

        that salary mentality, why are you so concerned with impressing white people?

    Tamar did that to herself. Yes, her personality is over the top, she’s loud, and opinionated. But, she seemed to have a “greater than thou” complex with the other ladies.

    In her defense, the other ladies were weak and allowed her to control the conversation. All seemed like they were afraid of offending Tamar, with the exception of Loni. It’s possible Loni teamed up with the weakest link, Jeannie, to have Tamar fired.
    Tamar had been bullying Jeannie since the shows conception. So, I am not surprised.

    • Nahhh May 22, 2016

      Stop making up stories, Loni was crying balling when Tamar was going through her sickness in and out the hospital. If it’s her then she deserves an Emmy because she was acting like she almost lost a sister. Wasn’t Loni just saying she textes Tamar mother ? I doubt it’s her

      Treats her sisters like s*** I will defend a black wOman but her attitude sucks and daytime tv is not for smacking and head rolling most black women are looked at as angry ghetto hood rats she has money but act trashy Toni Braxton is so different from her nene leakes need to be fired too because these black women let fame get to their heads and make them treat people like s*** time and place for everything karma tamar is a heck of a thing you denied your own sisters from coming on your show in your absence to make a check petty

      • LmfaoHoe May 22, 2016

        I hear what you are saying but white people need to quit it with these stereotypes, last I checked Tamar didn’t represent all black women as hood rats and ghettos. Lastly, there are plenty of great Black women that carry themselves respectfully on TV but media never shines lights on them.

  3. Him May 22, 2016

    STAY AND FIGHT, KING, BROKEN RECORD, SIMPLE THINGS could all have been hits; focus on ur music THE REAL is wack without TAMAR

    • wrosy3 May 22, 2016

      She 40 and her music ain’t selling people remember her bad attitude over the talent she has some of these black artist get up there and get a nasty ego thinking this last forever bad attitude sink careers everyday and raven simone sherry shepherd Whoopi cannot string a coherent sentence on political topic it’s sad to watch the view at times can’t they find a black woman who have a damn degree to sit on that show they make black women look illiterate thank god for sonny hostien is it so hard to convey an opinion in a intelligent way so viewers know what you are talking about

      • Sam May 22, 2016

        You seem to have a problem with black women as all of your comments are negative towards them. Calling an individual out is one thing, but all I’m reading is black women this and black women that

      • LmfaoHoe May 22, 2016

        If the music is good that alone should be concerned with. People stay trying to make someone be somebody else or someone they’re not. I can careless, just make the music and stay low.

      • wrosy3 May 22, 2016

        I have no issues with black women they are not supportive of each other success when one makes it they forget to help the other black women are known to sell each other out do you see any black women in music praising each other or put each other albums on their twitter nope rih gets more support from Katy white Perry than Beyonce In my opinion Taylor gave rih more support than tamarind who went out on,a speaking tour to say rih did not deserve her Grammy for best album bey took the stage over ledisi I can go on and on instead of,uplifting it’s easy to tear each other down I never hear Beyonce support Kellys music in the media it’s every woman for herself

      • wrosy3 May 22, 2016

        I have no issues with black women tamar went out on a speaking tour bashing rih about wining the Grammy tamar felt it was owe to her instead of being gracious she bash a fellow black woman Wendy azalea hates on black women in the media all day everyday Oprah and Michelle are the only women in the public eye to uplift black girls watching housewives of Atlanta turns my stomach to see how much they hate each other it comes through TV

      That’s what I’ve been asking, who the hell is Adrienne Bailon!

      • Danzou May 22, 2016


      • Cinnamon Girl May 22, 2016

        Adrienne is the Latina girl who Missy fantasizes about

  5. Nahhh May 22, 2016

    The real is pre recorded. I think they already filmed the rest of the season Jeanie is in Singapore as of this moment so how can they still be filming ?

  6. Loni Love May 22, 2016

    Don’t know ha.

    • The Legend Called Missy Elliott May 22, 2016

      But you know KFC don’t you?

      • Danzou May 22, 2016

        Missy sure as hell knows KFC

  7. Gsyyyyy May 22, 2016

    Well I will NEVER watch the real again

  8. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? May 22, 2016

    Y’all need to chill with all these troll accounts.

    • Danzou May 22, 2016

      Lol seriously. There’s another account that’s faking my name. Their avi doesn’t look like mine at all tho so I hope everyone notices but it’s still aggravating and pathetic. They keep trying to get me dragged and honestly I think it’s molly.

      • Danzou May 22, 2016

        Molly you need to stop.

  9. whenindoubtthetruthwillout May 22, 2016

    Looking forward to Wendy Williams tomorrow!!!

  10. Bravo!! May 22, 2016

    Wothout Tamar Braxton’s there no show. I told me ex who do Tamar hair that ” The Real” will not be around for a long time. Tamar may be loud and controlling, but she half the show. Now, I know the show will be cancelled after the third season. They made a huge mistake even though she loud and a little bit ghetto at times

    • Realtalk May 22, 2016

      Well Tamar wasn’t the loudest and ghetto one, that Jennie gets on my last nerve trying to be so called “black”. She always over talks every body, I wonder what the energy will be like now without Tamar?

      • Bravo!! May 22, 2016

        Lol.. Jennie irritate me as well. I told my ex if the shoe not cancell first their going to change the host. Jennie will be the first to go

  11. ka May 22, 2016

    I guess that leaves Wendy Williams alone wikth all the loudness and know all-isms, but have to give it to Tamar she did spruce it up at bit. I wounder who is next in line?

    • Bravo!! May 22, 2016

      I feel Ne Ne Leakes will be a good replace. But she will bring the drama between the group

  12. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? May 22, 2016

    This really hurts my heart. I love Tamar and her outspoken/no-holds-barred personality. She’ll definitely be missed and I don’t see the show surviving without her. It’s just true at this point.

  13. #JACKIE May 22, 2016

    Tamar who? Oh the flop muppet

    • Danzou May 22, 2016

      She has more money than manerror maybe she can help your fav out and pay for its snip op.

      • Danzou May 22, 2016


      • Danzou May 22, 2016

        Lol I love Ciara

      • Cinnamon Girl May 22, 2016

        But she doesn’t have a multi million dollar modeling contract like Ciara

    • Danzou May 22, 2016

      Tamar don’t need to strip for old Italian man for money when she has a child at home. Tamar don’t need to expose her child to make money. Tamar is the boss.

  14. Mark111 May 22, 2016

    They should keep it REAL and tell the real reason. Oh well, bye, I guess it wasn’t HER show after all. Lol

    • Mark111 May 22, 2016

      I agree sis, we all know that fired her ass, nobody in this situation is keeping it REAL.

  15. Stephon Jackson May 22, 2016

    Dumb decision! This show won’t last long now. Tamar’s personality was a huge part of this show. Now, Loni is gonna have to carry the funny & shady load on her big ass back. I hope this show get’s the lowest ratings from now on. I’m taking it off my automatic DVR timer.
    Wendy Williams rating are thru the roof. She’s the Queen of Morning talk shows now. With Ellen being Queen of Talk shows period. I wish Oprah never left. She’s definitely missed. There haven’t been on show to even come 10% close to the genius that was “The Oprah Winfrey SHow”. Anyways, you’ll be fine Tamar. Yo lil mouth & wanna be Mariah Carey personality got you fired (lol). Not everyone can take that. I get you tho. #Won’tBeWatchingNoMo’

    • #JACKIE May 22, 2016

      Of course you would f**. She acts just like a daddyless Queen

  16. Lake Erie May 22, 2016

    TGJ lmao and this picture they used of her for this post lol. But hey, back to the music Tamar. She still has her own show with her sissys and husband and most importantly her music career. Focus on that.

    • Mark111 May 22, 2016

      She has no music career, that s*** will flop flop flop.

      • Loviedear May 23, 2016

        jealous much??

    • Music103 May 22, 2016

      LOL Yeah shady for the picture, but funny! LOL

      I dont think her music career is going anywhere TBH, she has been at it for years and had Vince by her side, it really took Lady Gaga tweeting of her to send her one song to top of iTunes for a week or so. She should be lucky and grateful for that, her peak TBH.

  17. Mark111 May 22, 2016

    I feel for Tamar, she was the show.

  18. Danzou May 22, 2016

    Molly why are you pretending to be jackie and danzou you seriously need counseling.

  19. What Now May 22, 2016

    KIII. Tamar so badly thought she was the Beyonce of the group and they just made her into the Farrah. *sips Lemonade*

  20. Casual May 22, 2016

    Tamar’s sisters, The Skorpion Show, K. Michelle, and now The Real . . . Is it Tamar or everybody else? She got used to being the baby Braxton sister, but the world won’t baby her and put up with her sh*t. She’ll be a-ight.

    • Music103 May 22, 2016

      What happened with her and the Skorpion Show though?

      • Casual May 22, 2016

        Tamar fell out with them a few years ago after they did an interview with K. Michelle. I don’t know Tamar ever made up with them.

  21. Keri Qween May 22, 2016

    So she can focus on her solo career yeah right. Its something else that’s a cop out

  22. Kayla C May 22, 2016

    So happy, now I can finally tolerate the show

  23. Keith May 22, 2016

    I predict an early demise for the show after some uninspired rotating hosts. Perhaps Tamar will focus on the music now…she will be okay, though. #teamTamar

  24. Music103 May 22, 2016

    Not really going to miss her. She was really over the top and really mean or least disrespectful to Jeanie and even Tamera at times. I grew to put up with her, but honestly Tamar was team too much, sometimes Loni too but least she is a comic.

    I think the show will continue on just fine. Do you all really think one person makes a show? I mean if its Oprah, perhaps. But if its not Oprah I don’t think any one person could halt a successful show. Saying that is like saying they only got their Emmy nominations because of Tamar. No. She was nominated along with ALL the other 4 hosts.

    The show is renewed thru 2016-2017, and 2017-2018 seasons. Unless they somehow bomb this fall they will last for up to 4 seasons.

  25. Justafan May 22, 2016

    She got TheBraxton Family Values anyways

  26. A&R May 22, 2016

    Tamar has mulitple talents but my heart feels like she needs to focus on music. Before I heard of this occurence I had this deep thought cross. It was Bc I finally gave that last album a listen. This woman could truly bring it through music if she focuses but all this other ish is serving as a distraction. Sometimes blessings can hurt. Count it joy Tae. Fade off of social media and get your music grind on. And stop letting your circle make you think you can sing and dance as an Urban artist. JLo is doing it. So can you. Follow your heart and shirt that mouth for a minute.

    • A&R May 22, 2016

      Letting your circle make you think you CANT* sing…*

  27. cocobutta May 23, 2016

    TGJ know 1st hand the REAL Tamar after the full Splash sessions were blocked by Tay as she sounded A MESS while having the vocal issues in Love & War era. She extrovert and even her own family can only take her in doses but that’s her personality. Only thing she should be better at is giving genuine apologies because comes of salty when it comes to ownership of her role in problems. Love her voice so want music to be ahead of other projects alongside BFV.

  28. Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely May 23, 2016

    She is going to do another album

  29. Loviedear May 23, 2016

    I honestly tuned in to see Tamar. She would crack me up with her antics but she would many times say what I was thinking. Tamar reminds me of my sister who loves to have fun but will give you her REAL thoughts at all times. I’m sooo gonna miss her on the show. Sniff Sniff

  30. Miss Omega May 24, 2016

    Tamar’s personality is obnoxious and I can’t say I blame the staff, but is there really a show without Tamar? Jeannie and Adrienne do not have a TV host vibe (kind of annoying voices, lack the swagger) and both Loni and Jeannie are kind of boring. Tamera’s a bit quieter, but offers an interesting perspective to things and has larger name recognition compared to her co-hosts.

    I just don’t think this show works unless you get rid of more than just Tamar and replace them with superior candidates.
