While the specifics on why Tamar Braxton was fired from The Real may never be known, recent comments she made regarding her co-hosts are raising some eyebrows.
During an interview on The Steve Harvey Show, Braxton admits she was blindsided by the news of her firing.
"You know when you love your job, it's no issues," she told the host.
"You're not complaining about much, you're not fighting with anybody, me and the girls got along, so I thought."
Many fans took that last comment as a hint that there may have been tension between Braxton and her co-hosts, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Bailon and Loni Love.
Did one or more of them complain about Braxton?
Representatives for The Real deny any conflict between the Dancing With the Stars alum and her co-stars in the following statement:
"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 [Herbert] all the best."
Shortly after her dismissal from the show, Braxton took to Instagram to announce that she had been "stabbed in the back" by someone she "stupidly trusted."
In addition, she unfollowed former co-hosts Bailon, Mai and Love on Twitter, leaving many to suspect something had gone down between the stars.
But despite any hard feelings surrounding her departure, a silver lining emerged when Braxton signed on to star in a new talk show produced by Steve Harvey.
"It's such a beginning," Harvey said of Braxton. "She has such a bright future. She is such a star. She has so much to offer."
