While the witch hunt is on to find out who allegedly stabbed Tamar Braxton in the back getting her fired from The Real, HipHollywood has learned that it may have actually been Tamar that got Tamar fired.
According to a source close to production, Braxton had been unbearable at times to work with, and on one occasion went so far as to go off on the shows Executive Producer in front of the entire crew.
The source also said audiences, believe it or not, were’t feeling Tay Tay, and the singer received negative feedback after the show conducted a series of focus groups. What’s more producers also got a chance to see how well the show did without her while she had been away doing Dancing With the Stars.
Said the source, “Braxton essentially let them test out her seat while she was away, and they found the show could still go on, and rate well with out her.”
The source said Braxton’s co-hosts were completely blindsided by the news, and found out on Saturday evening that Tamar had been cut from the show. Adds the source, producers told Braxton she could announce that it was her idea to leave the show to focus on her music, Braxton instead took to Instagram and posted this critic message.
No word on who producers are eyeing to fill Braxtons seat. The Real is currently on hiatus until August, but is slated to tape in July during Essence Festival.
