*The situation between Tamar Braxton and “The Real” is getting messier by the minute.
Now parent company Warner Bros has jumped in, reportedly threatening to sue over last night’s episode of “Braxton Family Values,” which included an alleged “reenactment” of Tamar telling her sister Toni about being fired from “The Real”; and also threatening to release “multiple” video clips of Tamar allegedly throwing backstage temper tantrums and cursing out the executive producer — all according to a new report from Daily Mail Online.
According to the outlet, WE tv called for an “emergency episode” of “Braxton Family Values” to deal with Tamar’s firing, and had her sisters Trina, Traci and Towanda join Toni in Los Angeles for the scene at her bedside.
“They reenacted the day that Tamar found out she was fired and staged an entire scene where Tamar is laying in bed crying and declaring that she doesn’t know why she was fired, while her sisters attempt to console her,” a source, who viewed the episode told Daily Mail Online.
According to Daily Mail Online, the rest of the above scene, (not seen on last night’s episode), had Tamar and her husband/manager Vincent Herbert continuing to insinuate that her former co-hosts Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamara Mowry-Housley played a part in her termination.
“Vince declares that the co-hosts were always jealous of Tamar’s success and that Loni in particular always had it out for Tamar. Vince helps pass the buck in the episode and fuels the conspiracy theory that the co-hosts aided in her ouster,” the source said.
Daily Mail Online says Warner Bros sent legal letters to WE tv about last night’s episode claiming that if anything on the show’s reenactment further disparages “The Real” or violates Tamar and Vince’s non-disclosure agreement, they plan to file a lawsuit.
Additionally, Warner Bros initially decided to ditch Vince as an executive producer on “The Real” and wanted to have a “come to Jesus meeting” with Tamar one last time to help her keep her job, the outlet reported.
“They had completed a photo shoot for season three,” the source said, adding: “Their intention was not to fire her, but because Vince was dropped as a producer he wouldn’t allow the executives to speak to his wife directly and that’s what pushed the network to not pick up her option either and can her from the show.”
Furthermore, Warner Bros. is also threatening to release multiple videos of Tamar imploding on set, as well as the video of her meltdown and cursing out the show’s executive producer, according to Daily Mail Online.
“Everyone on set will tell you that her actions that day were reprehensible and the epitome of insubordination. All the cursing and violent language, it was just a chaotic scene that will make Dennis Quaid’s movie set meltdown look like a nursery rhyme session at a daycare center,” the source said, before adding: “It would definitely affect her ability to get work in this business!”
Sources close to “The Real” tell the outlet that Tamar and Vince are likely trying to portray her as the victim because they need to find a new gig now that they’ve lost “The Real.”
The couple has already been battling financial issues and was sued in 2015 by a former nanny who said they stiffed her on payments. There’s also a laundry list of hairdressers, makeup artists and stylists that will no longer work with her over outstanding debt as well.
As previously reported, Steve Harvey has since stepped in with a development deal for Tamar to host her own talk show, according to reports.
