Are you still wondering, why Tamar Braxton was dropped from The Real ?

Wonder no more. It has to do with the fact that she was too flamboyant and her former co-stars -- Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Loni Love -- were more polished.

Braxton joined the daytime gabfest when it was launched in 2013 and was unceremoniously fired in 2016.

What followed were constant shading and feuding online between the "White Candle" singer and her ex-friends.

The former co-host claimed the Fox Broadcasting Company gave her the axe because Love and the others stabbed her by pushing lies about her.

It was also reported that Braxton was a diva on set making it hard for the cast and crew to work with her.

A new report published this week revealed the reasons for Vincent Herbert's wife's firing -- in focus groups -- educated and working women did not like her.

They found that the Braxton Family Values star was too loud and did not connect with her vocabulary and mannerism.

An insider had the following to say about the "One on One Fun" artist: "The focus group research showed that most educated and working women did not identify with Tamar's show vernacular."

The source went on to share: "Her use of words known to be popular among drag queens and some gay men — phrases like "get your life," "where they do that at," and "have several seats."

Those, who took part in the research, also did not approve of some of her famous hand gestures that are loved by her followers on social media.

Some TV watchers found her aggressive; others disliked her eye-rolling, neck-rolling, and the smacking of her mouth.

The person went on to say the intelligent viewers of the show viewed Braxton's actions "as indicative of stereotypical behavior that African American women have worked years to overcome."

The mother of one explained how she found out that the show had decided to let her go.

She revealed: "Like, what you talkin' 'bout? Got fired for what? And honestly, my heart sunk into my shoes. I pretty much fell over, to be honest. I loved going to work just like everybody else."

She added: "I was actually in my glam room and when I came downstairs, I saw this look on Vince's face. He just looked distraught and confused, and I thought something happened to someone in my family, like, 'What's wrong? What's going on?" And he was just like, 'I think you got fired.'"

Since leaving The Real , Braxton has signed a deal with Steve Harvey's East 112th Street Productions for her own talk show and television series that are expected to launch next year.

She is dropping a new album called Bluebird of Happiness that will be out on September 29.

    I'm a 65 year old white woman that loved Tamar on The Real! I found her mannerisms and many of her crazy sayings entertaining and like so many others, she was the main attraction for me. I do still watch the show because I also really like Tamera and Jeannie but I must say that the show lost its spark when Tamar was no longer on the panel. I see that instead of hiring someone to take Tamar's place, they have fill-in co-hosts instead. If they fired Tamar because she wasn't "polished" enough, I have to wonder why they choose people like Jocelyn Hernandez to fill in on the show...TALK ABOUT UNPOLISHED! She says crude things and is certainly not projecting a better image than Tamar! This goes for several other co-hosts that have been on the show. Personally, I would much rather watch Tamar than any of the subs they have brought in. Just my 2 cents!

    So, now they put the on Stevie J's girlfriend that sat up and talked about everyone on Love and Hip-Hop and you stay Tamar throwing shade, she was uneducated, and the educated woman couldn t related to her. Well, the show is called THE REAL not semi-real. I am educated black woman way older than the hosts on THE REAL and I thought that she was funny. I even watch Sister Sister when they had their sitcom on TV and their reality show, I watch Asian young woman when she had her fashion make over on TV, The Cheetah Girls and when Adrian was on that other show was called Empire something with her friend but it was cancelled, and the comedian I don't know much about her so I can speak on her. See I have been watching these young women making their mark in the world and not passing judging on them. I enjoyed the show with Tamar on it just like I enjoy her on BFV and their is that one family member that will always get on your last nerve and her sister's will stand by her side and not let anyone put her down I don't care how much they disagree with one another. From a last born.

    I don't understand how anybody can tolerate this woman's mouth for too long! Tamar needs to bring it down several notches!! Smacking her mouth and speaking in ghetto tongue won't make the cut anywhere! Talking about another talk show in the works....Lawd say it ain't so !!

    The show is NOT good anymore and sure it will be off soon. I hope they are looking for other avenues since Tamer has leftlikes SOOOOOOO BORING no one has the spark and style and I feel bad that if they did try to get her off behind her back. She loved them she always showed love to them outside the show she just love hard and people get that mistaken for ALOT in this world they take being outspoken or loud for carelessness they are ALOT more Tamars out here people just acting like they are not one. I wish her well everywhere she go she stands out and Alot of people just don't like that not even her sisters lol

    I loved her on the real! The show is called The Real that what she was doing SMH. I don't watch that show because they took her off! She was the only reason I turned in. I watch BFV and Tamar And Vince show as well! I will also be watching her new talk show too!

    No Tamar Braxton thinks she all that and she found that she is not when she got fired from the real one she was too thuggish and when she got booted out she blame every one except herself for her acting like a fool every since she started in the Braxton family. She was being too straight to the point to make every sister life not worth living and now that shoe is in the other foot now she is crying and stumping around like a child and now she knows how hard it's to be a mother and wife and can't be doing everything she used to do when she was single without a child but that child took her back to the real life and now she knows she can't without her Logan for more than a few days. So now she has to swallow her pride and take back what she said about her sisters life because now she is getting the same backlash from her husband Vince

    Tamar is so childish and needs to grow up, she is so loud and over the top. I don't want to see her on TV at all. I wish she wasn't on Braxton family values either!!

    Why Tamar got fired (almost two years ago) does not matter. The only thing that matters is that she's gone from the show, hopefully for good. She has a nasty personality, an oversized ego, and lacks the intellect to intelligently discuss most matters. Most of the time she sounded just plain ignorant. She needs to stick with singing. Interacting with others, is not her forte'.

      Well I used to love Tamar, but she got too bigheaded, and the smacking of the lips, eye rolling was very hard to watch for a black woman. We have tried to get away from that not bring it back to the younger generation. Who wants a young black woman sitting in a business office smacking her lips. It is a stereotypical thing. We want our young black women to show some class. Now Tamar music is beautiful and I wish her well, but as a role model for young black women, not acting that way.

    Well I sincerely hope Tamar tones it waaaay down on her new talk show. This woman got on my nerves so bad on The Real with that loud-a** popping of her mouth and ghetto-a** vocabulary! I stopped watching the show because of her. That was no way cute! She is equally as sickening on BFV n Tamar n Vince! She needs to take lessons from big sis Toni ! Tone it down Tamar.......waaaay down!

    Yes they knew how Tamar was before she got on the show. I think she balance the show off. I think some people got jealous. Even though she is not my favorite Braxton. Heyy Toni. I think firing her for that reason was wrong. You not go please everybody. And yes i stop watching and i refused my tickets to be an audience. Hopefully the show will expire soon. Its not fun anymore.

  • Cynthia luvs the realness in Tamar and Tiffany H would be the most magnificent co-star!!!!! I still luv you

    About Tamar, the reason for being fired reflects failure on the networks part. If the educated and working group couldn't relate to Tamar, the professional thing that should have happened would have been to give polish pointers to Tamar to be more polished. As well as change her "Diva" ways to become a better fit. The viewers to me seem to be a younger group because their topics of conversation are more geared toward younger adults. I think she helped balanced out the group as it relates to age, more age related to Loni. In my opinion I don't believe that this entire matter wad handled properly, nor truthful. If viewers complained about her mannerisms, who is watching Steve Harvey and his poor diction. He even stated he wasn't changing how he speaks. Nothing against Steve.

    Tamar and Tamara brought me to the show. I've been a fan a Tamara since Sister Sister and Tamar from BFV. I fell in love with all the ladies but stopped watching after Tamar left. ?

    I disagree with the group. The only reason I watched the real was because Tamar was on there, and haven't watched it since she left. If they didn't want her to be real then the show should've been named The fake, cause that's what I love about her, she's real. I will be watching her new show and the ones I already watch.#TEAMTAMAR❤
