Following her recent firing from The Real, tensions between Tamar Braxton and the show’s parent company are continuing to heat up.
Tamar re-enacted her dramatic firing during last night’s episode of WE TV’s Braxton Family Values, and parent company Warner Bros. is pissed.
In the scene, Tamar can be seen crying in bed and being consoled by her sisters after receiving the news of her termination. But it appears to have all been staged. The episode also shows husband Vince Herbert appearing to throw part of the blame at Tamar’s (now former) co-hosts, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Tamara Mowry-Housley, and Jeannie Mai.
“Vince declares that the co-hosts were always jealous of Tamar’s success and that Loni in particular always had it out for Tamar. Vince helps pass the buck in the episode and fuels the conspiracy theory that the co-hosts aided in her ouster,” one source told the Daily Mail.
And apparently, Vince had more to do with Tamar’s firing then we first thought.
According to the Mail:
“Warner Bros initially decided to ditch Vince as an executive producer on the series and wanted to have a ‘come to Jesus meeting’ with Tamar one last time to help her keep her job.
‘They had completed a photo shoot for Season three,’ the source said.
The source added: ‘Their intention was not to fire her, but because Vince was dropped as a producer he wouldn’t allow the executives to speak to his wife directly and that’s what pushed the network to not pick up her option either and can her from the show.’
In response to the scene, Warner Bros. has fired off legal letters to WE TV, promising to pursue litigation if the episode disparages The Real or violates Tamar and Vince’s non-disclosure agreement. They’re also threatening to expose videos of Tamar exploding on set. Citing cursing and violent language, a source also claims the videos would hurt the future of Tamar’s career.
Just when you thought things couldn’t possibly get any messier.
