After weeks of silence since the news broke of her being fired from The Real, Tamar Braxton finally speaks in a candid interview on the Steve Harvey Morning Show. The singer gave a play-by-play on how she and her husband, Vince, found out she was getting the boot.
That same day, on an episode of ‘Braxton Family Values’, Tamar cried to her sister as she revealed how she and Vince did not know why she was fired.
However, according to sources, Warner Bros isn’t happy of how they’re being portrayed by Tamar and Vince since Tamar was fired from ‘The Real,’ and the company has threatened to sue.
Not only did the company threaten to sue, but they’re also threatening to release video of Tamar going off on set cussing out an executive producer.
ACCORDING TO DAILY MAIL:
‘They reenacted the day that Tamar found out she was fired and staged an entire scene where Tamar is laying in bed crying and declaring that she doesn’t know why she was fired, while her sisters attempt to console her.’
Warner Bros fired off legal letters to WE TV about this Thursday’s episode claiming that if anything on the show’s reenactment further disparages The Real or violates Tamar and Vince’s non-disclosure agreement, they plan to pursue litigation.
The New York Post has since reported that Vince was aware that his wife was being fired from The Real two weeks before he actually told her.
Daily Mail Online has also learned, that 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 addition to sending letters to WE TV, Warner Bros. is also threatening to release multiple videos of Tamar imploding on set, as well as the video of her meltdown and cussed out the show’s executive producer.
‘Everyone on set will tell you that her actions that day were reprehensible and the epitome of insubordination. All the cursing and violent language, it was just a chaotic scene that will make Dennis Quaid’s movie set meltdown look like a nursery rhyme session at a daycare center,’ the source said, before adding: ‘It would definitely affect her ability to get work in this business!’
Sources close to The Real believe that Tamar and Vince are trying to portray her as the victim because they need to find a new gig now that they’ve lost The Real. Warner Bros is moving forward with plans to replace Tamar and have schedule a group of chemistry test with potential candidates for the job in early August.
This is getting messier by the day.
Update: We received the following in an email from ‘The Real’.
In response to statements made by Tamar Braxton during recent interviews and appearances surrounding her departure from “The Real,” we felt compelled to correct some inaccuracies.
Tamar Braxton’s contract was not renewed for reasons that will remain privileged and private, and that are between her and the Studio. However, we would like to make it crystal clear that Ms. Braxton’s departure from the show had nothing to do with her former co-hosts; any suggestion to the contrary unfairly tarnishes them. As always, we wish Tamar and Vince all the best.
