Tamar Braxton The Real
Tamar Braxton shocked fans when she confirmed that she wouldn’t be returning as co-host for the third season of The Real.

Braxton, along with Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Bailon and Loni Love have co-hosted the talk show since its 2013 premiere, but it seems as if all has not been well behind the scenes, culminating in Braxton’s exit. The news was confirmed with a joint statement issued by Braxton and The Real citing concentrating on her solo career as her reason for leaving.

The Real and Tamar Braxton have mutually decided that Tamar will not be continuing with the show for its upcoming third season,” the statement reads. “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.”

Tamar shared her side of the story on Instagram, with a long post saying that she was “stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted.” She also warned her followers 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.” You can read her full message below:

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)
