Tamar Braxton will not be returning to The Real for the hour-long talk show’s third season.
The 39-year-old and The Real broke the news in a joint statement, Sunday, saying, “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,” the statement continued. “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 has co-hosted the show with Tamera Mowry, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Bailon, and Loni Love since the program’s 2013 debut.
The announcement comes shortly after Braxton wrote about being betrayed by someone on Instagram, Saturday.
“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,” she wrote. “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!”
Braxton continued, “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 love yourself and WATCH YOUR BACK.”
