Tamar Braxton is ready to speak her truth when it comes to her experience in daytime TV.
Without hesitation, Tamar was ready to admit that she didn’t walk away from the gig.
“That was just devastating to me because that was my baby. I loved it. I loved the women on the show. I loved showing up at work every single day. I loved interviewing other people because I’ve always been on the other side,” she explained to the audience. “That is something that definitely broke my heart, probably my spirit.”
She added, “But the good thing is I got a chance to pay attention to my spirit and that’s something I never really did before.”

When T.D. Jakes asked if she would ever return to the daytime show, Tamar said she would need to rely on her faith for answers.
“I would have to really pray about it and think about it because at the end of the day I have to pay attention to why God removed me from that situation,” she shared. “I believe he removed me from that situation to protect me from that situation.”
When T.D. brought up the show’s reported declining ratings, Tamar simply joked. “Ain’t that terrible Lord Jesus.”
Back in May, E! News confirmed that Tamar would be leaving The Real after two seasons. The show, which also features Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon, has not found or named a new co-host.
Looking back, Tamar says she learned a lot after the experience including the fact that good things don’t always last forever.
“I just learned that I have to take the good with the bad and I did learn that things are only for a season… I didn’t really learn that until now,” she explained. “That situation, the relationships that I built at that time, that was just for that season and I have to be grateful for that season and I am and I’m happy that I had the chance to be in that seat and situation, but I got to take the things that I learned in that season and move on with the rest of my life.”
