Tamar Braxton: 'They Tried It!' Fired Now Hired by Steve Harvey for Own Talk Show
Don't call it a comeback because though they tried it, and she got fired only days ago from one talk show, Tamar Braxton has already been offered another talk show thanks to Steve Harvey, and she won't even have to share the stage with anymore co-hosts.
Braxton, who was recently fired as a co-host on the daytime talk show The Real, recently opened up for the first time about what happened on the set, that caused her to lose her gig during her radio interview with the Steve Harvey Morning Show. According to Centric, the R&B singer/Reality star never saw it coming and thought that everything was all good, with no issues between she and her co-hosts, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Jeannie Mai.
"My heart sunk into my shoes ... I pretty much fell over," Braxton stated of her reaction after receiving news from her husband, Vince Herbert, that her presence on the show's panel was no longer needed. Braxton explained how her husband placed a call to the production team to inquire about the specifics of their Essence Festival trip. Instead of receiving information on that topic, he was given the unfortunate news that his wife was fired.
Braxton revealed as many details as she could as to what led to her termination from the show but, ultimately she explained that she just doesn't know because they never gave her a reason. Harvey, who is very familiar with Hollywood and how the TV/film industry works, further explained how being let go from a tv show without explanation is pretty much the norm in that business.
"... In television they don't have to give you a reason," explained Harvey, who in addition to the syndicated morning radio show hosts his own television talk show and has starred in his own TV sitcom, The Steve Harvey Show. "They can say something as simple as we're moving in a new direction, or they just don't have to say anything. Television is a very unsafe business like playing pro football," Harvey continued.
Though Harvey exposed the brutal truth about television, the one thing he failed to mention was that all the uncertainty of the business pretty much doesn't matter when you are the boss, and you make the decisions. Just like he made the decision to offer Braxton another hosting gig but, this time with her very own talk show.
According to EUR, the 59-year-old offered Braxton a talk show deal under the direction of his own production company, East 112th Street Productions/Edemol Shine North America. Details on the new talk show are still undetermined but, kudos to Braxton for not letting whatever drama unfolded or didn't unfold during her time as a host on The Real affect her ability to keep it moving.
