A fixture on a daytime talk show is headed out the door after leaving a message about being “stabbed in the back.” E! News reports that Tamar Braxton, who has been a co-host on Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution’s “The Real” since it debuted in 2013, won’t be back with the show.
“She and a show rep revealed the news Sunday, saying the decision was mutual, a day after the TV personality and singer posted a cryptic message about being ‘stabbed in the back’ on Instagram,” the story reports.
The show, currently in its second season, has been co-hosted from the outset by Braxton along with Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon.
In a statement provided to E! News, Braxton and a rep for the show said: “‘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.”
Braxton also appears, along with her family members, on the WE tv reality show “Braxton Family Values.”
The message she posted Saturday on Instagram reads: “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 [heart] 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)”
