Yesterday, Tamar Braxton called into the Steve Harvey Morning Show and unloaded the whole story about her firing from The Real. Well, she unloaded her side of the story, but we’ll get to that.
Braxton has been on that show for years and claimed she was fired out of nowhere. Steve Harvey listened to her story, then surprised her in a new way, giving her a television show of her own on his production company, East 112th Street Productions.
Surely you didn’t think all was right in the world of daytime talkshows, though? Nah, you know better. There is always some drama.
See, in a much-talked-about moment on Braxton Family Values, Braxton cried over being fired and got a lot of sympathy. Now she has a new show. The executives at The Real are understandably annoyed over how bad they look in all of this and according to the Daily Mail, they are considering releasing behind-the-scenes tapes of Braxton having meltdowns to show why, exactly, they let her go.
Warner Brothers, which is behind The Real, also sent legal letters to WE TV, home of Braxton’s show, telling them they’ll release the tapes if BVF keeps featuring scenes that disparage anyone on the show. An anonymous source also told the Daily Mail that the BVF scene during which Braxton discovers that she was fired and is consoled by almost her entire family was — wait for it — staged and completely unrealistic. Her husband/manager Vincent Herbert allegedly knew she was being fired weeks before he told her, which was also allegedly before they filmed the scene where she finds out.
There is a lot going on there. It’s best to just wish Tamar Braxton luck with the new show and step aside.
