Amid an ongoing firestorm of negative press (as we have reported here), Tamar Braxton‘s new reality series – ‘Get Ya Life’ – debuted on WEtv Thursday (September 10).
First scheduled for a July 30 launch, the show’s premiere was postponed after the GRAMMY-nominee’s highly publicized suicide attempt stemming from drama allegedly related to her presentation in it.
Without its star hitting the promo trail in its support, the program made a less-than-stellar debut last week.

Viewership = 206,000
Among the 150 most watched programs on Thursday (September 10), ‘Get Ya Life’ ranked #103 with its inaugural episode.
To compare, the network’s ‘Braxton Family Values’ premiered to over six times the same audience (approximately 1.25 million in 2011) while the Tamar-led spinoff – ‘Tamar & Vince’ – opened to 910,000 in 2012.
Unlike the two aforementioned series, ‘Get Ya Life’ was accompanied by a soft promotional roll out due the shroud of controversy around singer/reality TV starlet’s disagreement with aspects of her contract with the network as well as how she is portrayed in the new reality show.
With its arrival lacking the trumpet of her previous efforts with WE tv, as well as the opening numbers seen above, there is a chance ‘Get Ya Life’ may not get a season 2.
