Tamar Braxton slammed her former co-stars in a now-deleted Instagram photo. It was one of the first times the singer took to social media since she was fired from "The Real." 

The shady message read: “When you in a room full of phony b------, it’s best to distance yourself.”  The photo showed "Real" hosts Tamera Mowry, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon and Jeannie Mai sitting close together and smiling for the camera. In the background, Braxton posed with a pout — noticeably distant from the other women. 

It didn’t stay on her page for long. Braxton quickly deleted the message. Of course, it wasn’t before it could be preserved by screenshots. The post still lives on accounts like the Shade Room.

A reason for Braxton being fired from “The Real” has not been given. It’s been widely rumored the signer’s former co-stars conspired to get her off the show. Bailon was labeled as the ringleader.

“It’s all about jealousy, and it’s all over Adrienne — who is the ringleader,” an insider told MTO. “Adrienne never will be Tamar — she can’t sing like Tamar, doesn’t have a fan base like Tamar and she doesn’t have any personality like Tamar. Tell that GUTTER RAT that I hope their show fails now.”

While there are plenty of rumors, Braxton said she would open up with Steve Harvey. She wrote Wednesday: “Happy. Positive. And not an ill will toward ANYONE or ANYTHING . Check me out on @iamsteveharveytv morning show tomorrow and hear why I have so much JOY! God is in control ... And he has prepared me for what's to come. I may joke or shade (and that's just jokes) but know in order for Him to use me my HEART is pure and FULL of LOVE! Walk into your light and destiny. I love u all.” The post racked up nearly 30,000 likes from her 2.4 million followers less than an hour after it went live.

Don't miss her on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show," which airs Thursday 6-10 a.m. EDT.
