Tamar Braxton has made no secret of the fact that she’s been locked in a nasty feud with her former co-hosts on The Real ever since she was fired from the daytime talk show this year, and now she’s throwing even more shade in the show’s direction after being asked if she’d ever return.
Tamar was asked if she’d ever head back to the Fox daytime talk show during an appearance on The T.D. Jakes Show on December 19, as Jakes asked the Braxton Family Values star if she would take back her seat on the hosting panel alongside Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon amid reports the series has been struggling in the ratings game.
“Ain’t that terrible lord Jesus,” Tamar joked when Jakes alluded to recent reports claiming The Real’s ratings had slipped in the wake of Braxton’s firing, before then admitting that if she got a call from the show’s producers asking her to return she would have to “pray” on an answer.
“I would have to really pray about it and think about it,” Braxton, who’s currently working on her own talk show with Steve Harvey admitted, “because I would have to pay attention to why God removed me from that situation.”
“I believe He removed me from that situation to protect me from them,” Tamar then admitted, seemingly referring to her former The Real co-hosts who she admitted that she’d been locked in a pretty bitter feud with ever since she was fired from the series seven months ago and just days after Love admitted she’d welcome Tamar back to the show, despite their months-long feud drama.
Braxton’s response comes after it was claimed back in October that The Real was supposedly suffering a “ratings crisis” after Braxton was fired, with Broadcasting Cable alleging that Season 3, the first season not to feature Tamar on the hosting panel, allegedly debuted with a 22 percent decrease in viewers compared to Season 2.
Tamar’s latest shade aimed at her former show came as Braxton also dropped big secrets about her upcoming new album on the show, hinting that she’s ready to get personal about her drama-filled year when she drops her first album since 2015’s Calling All Lovers.
Tamar gave fans a hint as to what they can expect from her as yet untitled new album on the show, where Braxton called her new music is her “favorite” while hinting that there’s a chance her The Real feud, as well as her alleged marriage drama with husband Vince Herbert, could have inspired her new album.
“I’m so sure about who I am,” Braxton admitted when asked by Jakes why her new album is her favorite before Tamar went on to reveal that she believes her new album will be her best yet because she’s “not trying to get validated by anybody.”
“I don’t need it,” Tamar continued. “It’s just for me and the things that I’m inspired by [are] the things I’m writing about and singing about.”
Tamar Braxton then went on to reveal on the daytime talk show that she believes her music “absolutely” evolves as she evolves in life, which suggests her year of drama, from her The Real firing to her alleged marriage issues, will more than likely be a subject in the music.
And as Braxton’s fans, nicknamed Tamartians, will already know, there’s no doubting that Tamar has had a whole lot to write about since dropping her most recent album last year.
The past year alone Braxton has been embroiled in a whole lot of drama, which first hit the headlines when she was fired The Real in May, causing a nasty feud to erupt between the singer and her now former co-stars and friends.
Tamar first confirmed that she and Jeannie, Adrienne, Loni, and Tamera were no longer friendly by referring to her former friends as “phony b*****s” on Instagram shortly after she was fired before Braxton then accused Adrienne and Tamera of attending her son’s birthday party to look good and “save their a**es.”
“I wish that I would stop being brought up since I was so BAD,” Tamar tweeted and deleted in August, officially confirming for the first time that she was locked in a feud with her The Real co-hosts, despite previously being close with the foursome before her departure.
“No shade… but don’t believe the hype! I haven’t spoken to [anyone],” Braxton then continued in a slew of since-deleted tweets, officially confirmed her widely reported feud with the ladies. “Real friends don’t need press.”
The drama from her The Real firing then continues to spill over form Tamar, as Braxton then continued to unfollow any and all of her friends who mentioned the show on social media in the past few months, causing Tamar to become locked in nasty feuds with now former friends including Toya Wright and Tiny Harris.
But it’s not just Braxton’s friendships that have taken some serious strain this year, as Tamar also found herself caught up in allegations of domestic abuse after police were allegedly called to a dispute in Atlanta, Georgia, between herself and husband Vince Herbert after Bossip claimed that Braxton and her husband of eight years got into a dispute that allegedly saw Vince bite his wife on the hand.
Daily Mail also alluded to drama within Herbert and Braxton’s marriage, claiming in October that Tamar has supposedly been “living in a private hell,” though the couple denied the allegations.
