And the tea keeps coming! Following this weekend’s breaking news that Tamar Braxton had been fired from “The Real” without any real reason, new reports are showing it was Tay’s attitude that got her the boot.
The Daily Mail is reporting that sources claim throughout season two of the show, Tamar’s diva attitude had became tough to work with. She allegedly had heated screaming matches with the show’s producers in front of the audience during taping.
A source close to the show says it was a tantrum throwdown in front of one of the show’s sponsors, Pinterest, that led to her ultimate departure from the show.
“It was an ugly scene. She really acted out during the taping in front of the studio audience and then exploded behind the scenes once the show was done. Producers had to heavily edit the segment to make it presentable to air on TV, but the sponsor was on set for the segment and witnessed it all.”
But wait there’s more! Supposedly when Tamar was out on leave following her “Dancing With the Stars” medical absence, the show’s parent company, Fox hosted focus groups to see if the show’s audience had reacted negatively or positively to the show’s remaining hosts Tamera Mowry, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon and Jeannie Mai.
Get this —according to the show’s source, the focus groups revealed they thought Tamar was too “ghetto” for the show!
“The research went on to say that most educated and working women found her to be ‘ghetto’ and that her aggressive eye-rolling, neck-rolling, and the smacking of her mouth were indicative of ‘stereotypical behavior that African American women have worked years to overcome.”
Let us know your thoughts! You think Tamar’s diva-tude was worthy of the boot?
