Was Tamar Braxton, mouth almighty and fifth wheel on the daytime chatfest, “The Real,” missed by her show’s producers when she fell ill last month? Well according to Page Six, the dramatic diva was reportedly not missed and as a matter of fact, The Real’s producers, “seemed much happier without her.”
The R&B songstress and star of the “Braxton Family Values” reality show was a top competitor on the wildly popular ABC-TV show, “Dancing With the Stars” when she had to drop out due to blood clots in both her lungs. Tamar was rushed to the hospital midway during dress rehearsals and was not present at the start of the live broadcast. The then ailing award-winning recording artist’s reported initial diagnosis was pneumonia and even though her health was compromised, Tamar forged ahead, returning to the show, just in time to perform a team-up routine with fellow competitors. Upon completing the segment, it was clear, Tamar was exhausted after the showing.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from last week.
What a bummer! Dancing With The Stars has lost another one, not by elimination, but due to health issues, for the second time this season. Weeks ago, Kim Zolciak was forced to withdraw herself from the competition on Dancing With The Stars due to a mini-stroke that revealed a heart problem, and now it is Tamar Braxton’sturn to bow out. Earlier this week, Braxton was hospitalized for what she thought was pneumonia, but turned out to be something a lot more serious.
After she was taken to the hospital during rehearsals, then returned for her routine on Monday night, Tamar Braxton returned to the hospital after the show, only to be diagnosed with pulmonary embolism, or blood clots in her lungs. Needless to say, Braxton took to social media recently to let fans know that she will no longer be able to compete on Dancing With The Stars. Get all the details inside…

Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King Edmonds shared, “Fall has arrived on this sunny but brisk day in St. Louis! Cheers to the freaking weekend! I’m celebrating by stepping out of my dress and heels and putting on my comfiest loungewear and shouting #CANCERSUCKS! What are your plans? Pre order this shirt – runs a bit big – by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Sizes XS-L, $58, hand printed in St. Louis!”
Val considers his hometown New York City. “My parents dropped everything in Ukraine, their job, their friends, and came to New York City with nothing just so that their kids could become something,” shares Val. “Everything I have now is because of them.”
Once again, Val and Tamar butt heads in the rehearsal. When Val explains his vision for the dance, Tamar takes issue with him chasing her around shirtless. Wait, what? A shirtless Val is everything. #FansSelf #Shallow #DontCare I’m not here for Tamar making Val keep his shirt on.
About last week’s abysmal start, Kim says, “It was all kind of a blur – the scores and what they [the judges] said. I am really disappointed in myself because I obviously can do much better. But I mean where can you go from here but up?”
Kim focuses on Atlanta for “Hometown Glory” week.
“I grew up in Connecticut,” explains Kim, “but I have been here in Atlanta for 16 years. Atlanta’s where Big Poppa all my dreams came true. I met my amazing husband here. And I have had five of my children – out of six – here in Atlanta.”
Does Kim dance better this week? Avoid elimination?
When asked why she joined Dancing with the Stars, Tamar says, “After I had my baby, I kind of slowed down a bit and I just wanna put a pep in my step.” In rehearsal, Tamar and Val Chmerkovskiy are having fun together. Tamar says Val’s like an annoying little brother, adding, “Val and I are both outspoken <side eye>, but I’m happy to have the current champion as my partner.”
Tamar and Val dance the Quickstep to “Do Your Thing” by Basement Jaxx. The choreography is no joke – very courageous for week one – but Tamar nails it. So far, I think Tamar is the total package – spunky personality, good work ethic, and killer moves. Check out the video below.
