Were Producers Relieved When Tamar Braxton Was Absent From “The Real?”

tamar-630x268_2Was 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.

Tamar, who also co-stars in her own reality show,Tamar & Vincewith famed record producing mogul hubby, Vincent Herbert, also underwent another medical scare earlier this year in March when she was rushed to the hospital for an anxiety attack.  Tamar has not made it a secret that her life is one whirlwind adventure with her recording demands, concerts, promotional appearances, daytime talk show and two reality show obligations, and an  eponymous clothing line.  In addition Tamar is the mother of a toddler and wife, it’s no wonder she might have put her health on a back burner sometimes.  

Meanwhile, the latest scuttlebutt surrounding the busy leader of her Tamartians is that “The Real” producers allege, there are guests who would actually prefer Tamar not be present during their segment.   Page Six states, an unnamed source told them that the show’s producers claim,  “It’s easier for them to book guests because celebrities don’t want to book the show if they have to be interviewed by her.” 

Well a rep from the show is pooh-poohing the allegations claiming Tamar is a persona non grata around “The Real” set, telling the news source that the rumor is  “absolutely untrue and to report it would be false.”
