The number of suspects who could have shoved the knife in Tamar Braxton’s back is down to just one — and it’s not who you think.
After the singer and co-host of The Real confirmed on Sunday that she will not return to the talk show (the official joint statement between Braxton and FOX says it was a mutual decision, but her actions say otherwise), rumors flew about who was responsible for getting her fired. Naturally, collective eyeballs rolled in the direction of her co-hosts, particularly Adrienne Bailon, with whom she’s allegedly been beefing.
But according to The Jasmine Brand, who claims to have the inside scoop on the double-crosser Tamar ranted about in her Instagram post over the weekend, the culprit is actually the show’s executive producer, Rachel Miskowiec. Miskowiec has been in the position since 2015.
As Love B. Scott originally reported, Tamar allegedly got the ax because she didn’t perform well with focus groups and her relationship with production wasn’t great. But apparently, the bond she had with her fellow co-hosts wasn’t just for appearances on the show: they genuinely were all close off-camera and the rest of the girls — Bailon, Jeannie Mai, Loni Love and Tamera Mowry-Housley — were genuinely shocked to learn of her departure.
And if you’re wondering why they didn’t pull a “if she goes, we all go” maneuver, turns out there’s a lot of contract mess stopping them from even trying a stunt like that.
The Real is on hiatus until August, so it might be a while before we find out if Tamar is going to be replaced, or if it’ll be a panel of four in season three.
Do you plan to watch season three, despite all the drama?
