Tamar Braxton has clapped back after she was accused of throwing a little shade at her former talk show, The Real, in the wake of the news that Tamera Mowry-Housley had decided to leave the panel after seven years and six seasons. Tamar — who left the series under less than friendly circumstances in 2016 — posted a vague message to her Twitter account on Wednesday, July 15 that seemed to suggest a lot of secrets were going to be revealed. Though the tweet has since been deleted, fans widely speculated that the social media update meant there could be drama afoot.
Per The Jasmine Brand, Tamar wrote, “I don’t know if y’all can feel it or not, but s**t is about to get really real, REAL soon!!”
A number of her 1.6 million followers believed Tamar was addressing Tamera’s exit and possible drama behind the scenes.
“I feel it to Tay. The Real is really coming out,” one person said.
“REAL REAL SOON.. they made the wrong move for them,” another tweeted in response.
Tamar hasn’t been quiet the fact that she didn’t leave The Real on the best terms. She has called out her former co-hosts on multiple occasions, making it clear that they were no longer friends following her exit. She even accused co-star Loni Love of being behind her firing, though Loni has repeatedly denied the allegations.
Though many believed Tamar was referencing her former series — where she sat alongside Loni, Tamera, Adrienne Bailon, and Jeannie Mai for three years — the singer has since denied that her cryptic message had anything to do with the show or its latest cast shakeup.
She followed up with another Twitter update in which she said that she was not talking about The Real in her since-deleted tweet and made it clear that she wasn’t trying to be “petty.”
“Ain’t nobody talking about that show y’all,” Tamar clapped back with four crying laughing emoji. “….I told y’all ain’t no more petty s**t here,” she added.
That tweet has since been deleted as well.
Tamera announced the surprising news that she was leaving The Real on July 13 in a statement posted to her Instagram account. In it, she said that she was looking forward to the next chapter of her life and spending more time with her two children, who she shares with her husband, Adam Housley.
Tamera’s exit came mere weeks after Amanda Seales — who took over Tamar’s vacant chair — announced that she was leaving after only six months as a permanent co-host.
