We’ve held off reporting this news about Tamar, Vince and their recent domestic dispute because there wasn’t a real way to confirm it. But anything done in the dark–or in this case–at the Atlanta Ritz Carlton on Peachtree– comes to the light.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the rumors. The two got into an argument that culminated in Vincent biting Tamar’s finger.

And a 9-1-1 call, obtained by TMZ, seems to corroborate that story.

An unidentified man told the dispatcher:

“I’m having a domestic dispute between Mr. Vincent Herbert and Tamar Braxton. She claims that he bit her finger. He actually has left the property in a cab. He left but she’s here.”

The caller told the dispatcher that Tamar did not need an ambulance but he did request that an officer be sent to the premises.

You can listen to the audio in the video below.

The ladies of The Real TV show often made headlines for their engaging conversations, informative panels, and girl-talk sessions that felt like a group of besties gabbing at a slumber party.

But that changed when it was revealed Tamar Braxton would not be returning to the show. The remaining co-hosts, Adrienne Bailon, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, and Jeannie Mai, found themselves the subjects of negative press, which dominated headlines for weeks.

However, with Season 3 approaching, Adrienne, Tamera, Loni, and Jeannie are optimistic. The ladies hosted their first live show at Essence Fest in New Orleans this weekend, where we caught up with the foursome.

Adrienne, Tamera, Loni, and Jeanie discussed how they deal with all the unfavorable press, what they have planned for forthcoming episodes, and how much they value their loyal fans.

Just when you thought things were starting to simmer down, that Tamar and the other hosts of “The Real” had moved past her firing, there’s more to be said. While the hosts who are still employed with the show would like you to believe that they’re all still friends, Tamar took to Twitter to let everyone know that that is not the case.

Recently, Loni Love spoke on the Tom Joyner Morning Show about Tamar’s dismissal and asked that people stop calling her names on social media because it wasn’t her fault. Then in a Periscope video, when asked if she and Tamar was still cool, Tamera said, “Absolutely! We’re very, very happy for Tamar and I can’t wait to support her on the sidelines. She’s a very, very talented human being.”

But Tamar didn’t share the same sentiment and while she was in Louisiana supporting Toya during the funeral for her two brothers, she took to Twitter to explain.

You may have heard reports that Tamar and Tamera ran into each other on a flight to New Orleans for Essence Festival. Well, apparently that was true. But Tamar let folks know it wasn’t a happy reunion. Instead, it was more of a photo op.

Then someone asked about the fact that many of the women from the show, with the exception of Loni, were seen at her son’s birthday party. She had a response for that too.

Edges are a sensitive subject when it comes to black hair. Between being more prone to breakage and being an integral part of the health of your hair, no one wants to be without them. However, breaking edges is nothing new to many of us. Unfortunately, this is an affliction that many of us have experienced with relaxed hair, excessive straightening, and even with natural hair.

Many women are self-conscious of the thinning or breaking edges, but Tamar Braxton has been open about her struggle of experiencing shedding along her hairline after giving birth to her son Logan.


In a recent interview with Hype Hair, Braxton shared what products she’s been using on her hair. “The No. 1 thing I use is S.H.O. (Simplicity Hair Oil) products and I swear by them because that’s what got my edges to grow back,” she said. “I swear by it and I use it myself and it’s probably the most amazing thing on the market.”

Braxton also divulged that her favorite hairstyle this season is the top knot and our favorite protective style of braids.

It’s a been pretty gossip-filled month since the exit of Tamar Braxton from The Real. There’s been he-say, she-say about what really went down and why she was fired as a co-host, but nothing too concrete for us to comprehend. And from the looks of it, we’ll honestly never know.

However, today (June 22), in their first sit-down interview since all the drama, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Tamera Mowry-Housley shared their true feelings on Tamar not joining them for season three with Mario Lopez on Extra.

“First of all we want to let all of our fans know that we love them and we were totally taken by surprise when we found out that Tamar wouldn’t be returning to The Real, we love her,” Loni said. “We will miss her dearly,” Tamera added, after Mario noted that all five of the ladies seemed to get along from the outside looking in.

Well, with Tamar linking up with Steve Harvey for a show of her own and the ladies of The Real pushing on, it’s safe to say we can finally all put this issue to rest.

“The Real” Responds To Tamar Braxton’s Recent Interview

Friday, a spokesperson for “The Real” issued an official statement in response to Tamar Braxton‘s recent interview with the “Steve Harvey Morning Show” during which she seemed to imply, yet again, that all or some of her co-hosts played a role in her firing.

According to the spokesperson, although the team will never fully address what went down with Tamar, they “felt compelled to correct some inaccuracies.” The statement reads:

Tamar Braxton’s contract was not renewed for reasons that will remain privileged and private, and that are between her and the studio. However, we would like to make it crystal clear that Ms. Braxton’s departure from the show had nothing to do with her former co-hosts; any suggestion to the contrary unfairly tarnishes them. As always, we wish Tamar and Vince all the best.

Since her initial Instagram post, which let fans know that things had gone south between Braxton and producers, the singer has suggested that she was betrayed by her co-hosts. This, of course, has resulted in her fans attacking her former colleagues on social media, which is likely why production found it necessary to speak out again.

If we’ve learned anything from this week, it’s that people love to talk about what they would do in a situation they’ve never even been close to facing. That’s true when it comes to criticisms of the parents of the 4-year-old boy who jumped into the gorilla pit at the Cincinnati Zoo, resulting in the death of beloved gorilla Harambe. And it’s also true regarding the continued public spectacle surround Tamar Braxton’s exit from The Real.

So who’s to blame in these situations and are we the only ones who feel there’s more than enough finger pointing to go around? Watch and weigh in on these topics with the editors in this episode of Did Y’all See?

Have You Been In Tamar’s Shoes? How To Handle A Public Firing With Grace And Come Out On Top

Tamar Braxton public firing

May 22 wasn’t pretty. It was on that day that Tamar Braxton was on the wrong side of a high-profiling firing when she was removed from her position as a co-host on the syndicated talk show The Real. Rumors abounded. Why was she left go? Was it because viewers didn’t connect? Was it a revenge firing? Was she stabbed in the back, as she posted on Instagram?

Braxton was hit hard. On last night’s episode of Braxton Family Values, she revealed: “I just feel like the rug has been pulled out from under me. I don’t understand. I could probably understand more if I know I did something, but I don’t know what I did.”

Despite feeling “humiliated” by her most recent professional downturn, Braxton has bounced back fast. On June 2, while being interviewed on The Steve Harvey Morning Show, she and host Harvey announced that Tamar will be launching her own talk show through Harvey’s production company.

When all was said and done, Braxton fared well, but how about you and me? Do you know how what to do to save your career when you’re blindsided by a firing? The key thing is to “Cover yourself with professionalism,” advised Corporate Trainer and Executive Consultant Chavaz Kingman.

“If you are the victim of public firing, keep a level head and stay calm. Politely and professionally remove yourself from the company’s premises when appropriate, and if you have questions regarding the termination send your questions to your former Human Resources department or manager in writing. This is to show that even when your boss acted like a bully you did not retaliate with immature accusations, violence, or a temper —  just in case you need to prove you were in the right for unemployment or other legal reasons.”

Part of staying calm is understanding the motive behind an unexpected or drama-filled firing. “You’re going to be hurt, but if you are being fired in a public forum, the goal is to humiliate you and to show who has real power. Honesty and professionalism are the best response,” shared Human Resource expert Pierre Tremblay. “It will garner respectability points from your employees and colleagues. Employees are by no means stupid. If they are even a bit perceptive, they will know that you were fired in a way that simply is unacceptable. It will actually lower the reputation of the person who is doing the firing.”

If your former colleagues aren’t so perceptive, you’ll need to be prepared for rumors to start to circulate about your departure. “When the other side attacks your reputation, one of your saving graces will be to have business contacts who can refute or contradict any ill word that your previous employer has stated. Never leave all your business contacts in or with one company. Develop strong, sustainable business relationships with others who are confident when providing you with reference letters,” Kingman said.

When asked about the firing, be as honest as you possibly can, without being messy, suggested Tremblay. “There is this underlying human component that really is part of the business world. Without that humanizing element, business doesn’t exist. If you’re able to reason with your colleagues using that humanizing element, where they feel empathy and have understanding, the ability to reset their expectations after being removed is so much easier. When empathy and understanding takes place, it has less to do about persuading somebody for forgiveness and more to do about logic–everybody involved knows what really went down.”

No matter what, don’t lash back and make it a she-said, he-said saga. Jim Webber, who conducts workplace training and runs a human resources advice blog called Evil Skippy at Work told CNBC, “The right thing to do is to take the high road and say, ‘Yeah, that was really crazy, but I’m just going to move on.'” After all, according to CNBC, “there’s probably nothing you can do to make your boss look worse. And for another, you always want to make sure you look like the saner party.”

Tamar Braxton Returns From Her Social Media Hiatus…With Shade

It was just a week ago that Tamar Braxton announced that she was taking a break from social media. But homegirl couldn’t stay gone too long. Today, with an image of a bag from Shake Shack, she announced her return. 

And in case you thought, the week gave her time to get over all the drama behind her firing from “The Real,” you would need to think again.

A fan posted a picture of the ladies from “The Real” in a group picture. In the image, Tamar is either photoshopped into the back or she really was sitting away from them. Either way, there is a distinct space between her and the four other women.

Then, the caption for the meme says:

When you in a room full of phony b*tches and you have to distance yourself.” 

That’s one thing. The internets always have something to say about the latest gossip.

But it was Tamar’s response that has our eyebrows raised.

The former host was the first person to respond to the picture, writing “Pretty much” with the nail painting emoji.

Honestly, it’s sad to see it all playing out like this.

None of us know what happened behind the scenes, but literally just weeks ago, these women were calling each other sisters. And now Tamar’s co-signing to another woman calling them bitches.

Since fans learned that Tamar Braxton will not be returning to “The Real,” the burning question has been whether or not the singer will be replaced and who that replacement might be. Recently, a source told our sister site, Bossip, that producers have their hearts set on 22-year-old actress KeKe Palmer as a replacement.

“The person who’s going to replace Tamar is KeKe Palmer,” says the source. “Rachel produced the pilot for Telepictures with KeKe Palmer last summer. She likes KeKe and KeKe, of course, wants to do another talk show. She’s on the fast track to being in that role.”

Considering KeKe’s experience with hosting a TV show and her history with Telepictures, the rumors did not seem farfetched; however, KeKe says that this is not the case. On Saturday, the “Just KeKe” host took to Twitter to dispel the report.

And there you have it.
