Tamar Braxton fans are slamming The Real after the show’s co-hosts failed to acknowledge her dramatic firing during the Season 3 premiere.
After Tamar was sensationally fired from the daytime talk show back in May, fans expected the star’s former co-hosts Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley to offer up an explanation for her sudden departure when Season 3 debuted earlier this month, only to find that the foursome “ignored” Braxton completely.
Tamar’s former co-hosts failed to mention exactly why Braxton was no longer on the show on the September 12 Season 3 premiere, and have also opted to stay mum on the Braxton Family Values star’s sudden departure in the multiple shows that have followed.
“@TheRealDaytime didn’t even mention Tamar Braxton’s departure on their season premier #sonotreal,” Twitter user @beingjackayy tweeted out of the show’s radio silence when it comes to Braxton, while @ANDREWTONYBEE wrote, “I’m not watching The Real until they address what happened [with] Tamar. They all claim to be ‘real,’ but I bet they haven’t mentioned it.”
“I thought this was The Real?” @Neethz426 added on the social media site. “They just gonna ignore the Tamar situation and not address it AT ALL?!”
The Real’s silence on Braxton’s firing comes just months after Tamar claimed back in June that she was never given an official reason for her firing during an appearance on The Steve Harvey Morning Show, where she admitted that not being given an explanation was “bothering her to this day.”
Tamar then went on to call her firing from The Real “devastating” and “heart-breaking,” before telling Harvey, who is now developing a solo talk show with Braxton, that she “got [her] heart broke, it just wasn’t by a man.”
Braxton’s former co-hosts’ radio silence on her firing during the first few episodes of Season 3 also comes just days after a slew of Tamar’s fans took to social media to make it clear that they had no plans to watch the show following the reality star’s departure while also urging other viewers to boycott the new season.
Tamar Braxton has also made it pretty clear that things aren’t exactly great between herself and her former The Real co-stars, putting the foursome on blast in a slew of recent tweets while alluding to a potential feud.
After Tamera claimed in a Periscope chat earlier this year that things were still good between herself and Braxton in the months that followed her firing, Tamar then slammed the actress’s claims on Twitter, instead telling her millions of followers that she actually hadn’t spoken to Tamera, Adrienne, Loni or Jeannie in weeks.
Braxton confirmed that she was no longer speaking to any of The Real ladies in a slew of now deleted tweets, where she accused Tamera and Adrienne of only attending her son’s birthday party in June in an attempt to “save their a***s” amid the drama and feud rumors.
According to BET, Tamar appeared to allude to a feud in a number of tweets, which have since been deleted, where she hit back, “real friends don’t need press,” seemingly accusing her former The Real co-stars of using her name for publicity.
Fans were then quick to point out that both Tamera and Adrienne were present at Braxton’s son’s third birthday party back in June, to which Tamar slammed the twosome by accusing them of only attending the event to play down the feud reports.
“Baby, they came took [pics] and left,” Braxton said. “You’ve heard of let me save my a** right?”
Tamar’s pretty scathing messages came shortly after Loni appeared to confirm that the former friends are now locked in a pretty nasty feud, revealing that Braxton is now refusing to speak to any of her former The Real co-hosts in an interview with Page Six.
“I have not spoken with her recently. None of the girls have spoken to her recently,” Loni admitted when asked about the current status of The Real stars’ relationship with Tamar, just months before Season 3 debuted without the singer.
“We’ve reached out, but we haven’t heard from her,” continued Loni. “People just want time. You can’t badger them or make them talk. It’s understandable.”
