Tamar Braxton will no longer be a host on “The Real.”

Tamar’s departure from the show was confirmed in a statement from the daytime talk show Sunday morning (May 22):

“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. Everyone associated with THE REAL appreciates Tamar’s efforts and the contributions she has made to the show’s success, and we wish her all the best for the future.”

The night before, Braxton shared a cryptic post on Instagram signaling her exit from the show.


I love u all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted ( not my man or my sisters) I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch (?) and it’s not in good taste to tell you who…… but as #tamartians you are very smart and can figure things out on your own. But know that every one who smiles in your face is NOT your friend and is NOT cheering for you and will LIE and try and tear u down to TRY and dim your light. Thank GOD HE HOLDS MY FUTURE AND MY HAND!

(Remember who u are)….I am Tamar Braxton. And if you thought for 1 sec u played me…..In the late great prince and the amazing Beyoncé voice you PLAYED yourself? to God be the Glory and I will be taking a short break from ALL social media…until then? yourself and WATCH YOUR BACK ( I put this picture up cause this is the embrace I got from my sister and best friend that she ALWAYS gives when she knows I’ve been had)

Despite The Real and Tamar’s “joint statement” noting that Braxton’s exit from the show was “mutually decided,” online reports claim otherwise.

According to Love B. Scott, the “Love and War” singer was actually fired from the show.

Citing a “very reliable source,” the gossip blog reported that Braxton was fired because “she wasn’t reading too well with the audience and sales people didn’t find her to be a good fit with advertisers.” On top of that, “production found her too difficult to deal with,” the insider added.

The site also notes that Tamar has unfollowed everyone (Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, Loni Love, and “The Real”) but Tamara Mowry-Housley.
