Tamar Braxton is completely inconsolable in this scene from tonight’s episode of Braxton Family Values, which was shot after Braxton was dropped as a co-host of the talk show The Real. “I don’t understand. I could probably understand more if I know that I did something, but I don’t know what I did,” she tells her sister Toni.
The circumstances of Tamar’s exit from The Real, not to mention the sequence of events, are questionable at best. The show issued a press release on May 22, stating: “The Real and Tamar Braxton have mutually decided that Tamar will not be continuing with the show for its upcoming third season. She will be leaving in order to concentrate on her solo career.”
After the news broke, though, Tamar posted a vague reference to the firing on Instagram, writing: “I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted (not my man or my sisters).”
In the Season 5, episode 3 clip above—which is presented as if it must have been shot in the past two weeks (a WeTV rep said they couldn’t give a specific date)—Tamar totally breaks down and cries into Toni’s arms about the news. “I just feel like the rug has been pulled out from under me,” says Tamar, referring to The Real. “Everything just feels like a loss for me. This whole year sucked ass.”
