The show’s team aims to set the record straight and put all of the rumors to rest.
It’s been nearly two weeks since Tamar Braxton’s abrupt exit from The Real and now the team behind the remaining cast members is speaking out to clear things up.
Once news broke of Tamar’s firing, fans immediately began speculating that her co-hosts were part of the reason for her departure. Aside from a shade-filled social media post that has since been removed, Tamar herself has been relatively quiet about whether or not her former co-workers had anything to do with her firing, but the network says the rumors about the other ladies being involved on any level are simply not true.
“Tamar Braxton’s contract was not renewed for reasons that will remain privileged and private, and that are between her and the Studio,” a representative for the The Real said in a statement to E! News. “However, we would like to make it crystal clear that Ms. Braxton’s departure from the show had nothing to do with her former co-hosts; any suggestion to the contrary unfairly tarnishes them. As always, we wish Tamar and Vince all the best.”
Tamar has since announced that has partnered with Steve Harvey to host her own talk show and continues to maintain that she was completely blindsided by the news that she would not be asked to return to The Real.
