Tamar Braxton Says Getting Fired From ‘The Real’ Began Her Sprial Into Depression
A recap of Tamar Braxton’s firing from ‘The Real’
Braxton began hosting The Real during its summer test run in 2013. She co-hosted the show for two seasons before her firing in 2016. Love B. Scott was the first to report that Braxton was fired.
Tamar Braxton has been open about the pain and confusion she experienced amid the public fallout from her firing from ‘The Real.’ The “Love & War” singer admits to being embarrassed over the perception that she’s difficult to work with and admits that bouncing back from the humiliation has been difficult. In a new interview, Braxton says the firing marked the beginning of her depression.
Love has denied all involvement and says she believes Braxton’s firing temporarily tarnished the show’s reputation. She also says she’s open to speaking with Braxton to clear the air.
It was later alleged that Loni Love conspired to have Braxton fired over jealously, which Braxton says she has proof of. A former friend and employee of Love’s also claim that Love showed her emails she sent to the network vying to have Braxton fired.
“The first time I knew that things weren’t normal is when everything went down with the real. I was in my bedroom, it was completely dark,” Braxton said, confirming with Henson’s co-host that she began to feel that she was in a fog. “You don’t shower, you don’t eat and you don’t know what day of the week it is or the time, and you don’t care.”
