Tamar Braxton is no longer a co-host on “The Real,” but she’s reportedly still butting heads with the show’s executives. A new report claims the show’s parent company, Warner Bros., fired off legal letters to WE tv over the network airing an episode of “Braxton Family Values” in which the singer opened up about her getting fired from “The Real.”
According to Daily Mail Online, executives of “The Real” believe the “Braxton Family Values” episode was staged and painted the show and its remaining co-hosts — Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Bailon and Tamera Mowry-Housley — in a bad light. In a letter sent to WE tv, Warner reportedly said that if the episode continues to disparage “The Real” or violates Braxton’s nondisclosure agreement, it will file a lawsuit.
Sources told the outlet that WE tv put together an emergency episode last week with Braxton and her sisters so they could film her reaction to being fired. “They re-enacted the day that Tamar found out she was fired and staged an entire scene where Tamar is laying in bed crying and declaring that she doesn’t know why she was fired, while her sisters attempt to console her,” a source told the Daily Mail Online.
Supposedly, Braxton's husband, Vincent Herbert, thinks her co-hosts were “jealous” of her career. “Vince helps pass the buck in the episode and fuels the conspiracy theory that the co-hosts aided in her ouster,” the source said.
As previously reported, Braxton opened up about the drama surrounding her exit during an interview Thursday on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show.” The “Love and War” singer insisted that she was never given a reason why she was let go and swears there were never any issues with her co-hosts. “For this to come out of the blue is astonishing,” Braxton said. “Me and the girls got along, so I thought.”
Last week, Braxton hinted at some behind-the-scenes drama when she ranted on Instagram that someone she had trusted had stabbed her in the back. The 39-year-old didn’t reveal who she was referring to, but Bossip reported that her post was directed at the show’s executive producer, Rachel Miskowiec.
