Tamar Braxton’s exit from the daytime talk show “The Real” shocked many fans of the show. Tamar was clearly a crowd favorite but rumors that things were not so nice behind the scenes hit a fever pitch with an Instagram post Tamar posted after learning the news and un-following several of her co-hosts.

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)
It seems apparent from the post above that Tamar believes her former hosts were not on her side. One of those hosts, Lonie Love, posted this video to defend herself against the rumors that she colluded to get the baby Braxton sister kicked off the show. Though Lonie says that she and Tamar are “friends” and she released this video because “her friend is being hurt”. The misguided rambling she did in the homemade video likely did more damage than good. Love reveals some intimate details of Tamar’s departure, including a text she received from Tamar upon learning she might be getting FIRED. Tamar’s team has maintained that leaving the show was a mutual decision. Love’s video says it wasn’t. She also attempts to explain why many of the hosts failed to contact Tamar after learning the news.
Lonie expressed concern that posting this video might get her in trouble. It seems a public relations specialist was sorely needed on the show’s team. What do you think of Lonie’s video? Do you think the show will be better or worse without Tamar?
