“Braxton Family Values” returned on Thursday night and for some, the premiere was lackluster due to the fact that Tamar Braxton was nowhere to be seen. The “Love and War” singer has been boycotting the show longer than the rest of her sisters and it may end up hurting ratings.
The trouble between Tamar and WE actually started earlier this year when she refused to do any social media promotion for the show after the last season of “Tamar and Vince” aired.
Fans tweeted about Tamar’s absences.
“Where is Tamar? The rest is boring without her!”
“I will not watch just these four on #bfv they need tamar to spice it up.”
“How is this the braxton family without the whole family? Tamar is the reason I watch.”
Sources say that the R&B singer was upset with the way that both the network and her family were portraying her husband Vincent Herbert. As you probably already know, the two are supposed to be headed for divorce for multiple reasons.
What seemed to tip the iceberg was when Evelyn Braxton spoke to the media about Vince’s tendencies to verbally and physically abuse her baby girl. The last time we saw the 41-year-old was when she had dinner with her sisters and told them not to ask her anything about her relationship.
After that, the mother of one left the set of a movie she was working on and completely drove past and ignored her older sister, Traci Braxton.
Another factor that Tamar recently spoke about was the fact that producers were pushing for more drama between the family.
In a social media post, she told fans: “We STARTED having major OVER THE TOP family issues because some network wanted to compete with old love and hip hop numbers, And felt that our family was to “perfect” and un relatable ? ( Thats another story)…But only to realize that our problems are JUST like everyone else’s.. AND this BLACK FAMILY IS FINE THE WAY WE ARE!!!”
Lastly, in June it was revealed that the family refused to show up for filming unless they received an increase in wage and wardrobe budget.
Do you think “Braxton Family Values” can survive without Tamar?
