Sounds like she won’t be getting her life anytime soon…
That’s because after initial reports that the show and the Braxton Family Values star were parting ways amicably, we’re hearing that Tamar’s divalicious attitude is actually what got her the axe!
According to a Daily Mail report out Tuesday, the 39-year-old host has become increasingly difficult to work with throughout Season Two, going as far as screaming at executive producers in front of the audience!
However, a source close to the show claims that it was a temper tantrum in front of a sponsor that ultimately got her fired from the show, saying:
“‘It was an ugly scene. Pinterest was sponsoring the segment and Tamar was genuinely upset she was losing the game. She really acted out during the taping in front of the studio audience and then exploded behind the scenes once the show was done. Producers had to heavily edit the segment to make it presentable to air on TV, but the sponsor was on set for the segment and witnessed it all.”
Yikes… no one wants to work with unprofessional talent, Tay!
But that’s not all — apparently, during Tamar’s Dancing With the Stars absence and subsequent sickness, FOX held focus groups to see if The Real could work with just Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, and Loni Love.
Unfortunately for Tamar, the same source revealed that viewers were not fond of her “ghetto” attitude, saying:
“The focus group research showed that most educated and working women did not identify with Tamar’s show vernacular and 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.’
It was even said she seemed more suited to be a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race on Logo instead of a talk show host on The Real!
The research went on to say that most educated and working women found her to be ‘ghetto’ and that her aggressive eye-rolling, neck-rolling, and the smacking of her mouth were indicative of ‘stereotypical behavior that African American women have worked years to overcome.'”
We really hope she didn’t get fired for embracing gay culture… but she was a pretty good guest judge on RPDR, so we’d love to have her over there!
Who do U think should replace Tamar when The Real returns for Season Three this September??
