  • Before reading too many comments and putting an actual voice to negative energy...I’ll say good job Tamar. It takes bravery to speak on such matters, especially in the midst of it. She chose this platform to reveal herself the way she wanted. Everyone has dark moments so I will say whether you’re a celebrity or common citizen... you matter. ❤️ Literally, you’re matter. Not her. Not just him. Or whatever your name is. Your existence, before you were even given a name clearly has purpose because you were created. The purpose could literally only be understood by you, but you could help millions by just helping one. You could help someone unintentionally! So please help me genuinely & intentionally help you by telling you ...ya matter hunnie! ❤️ if you ever have hurtful thoughts to yourself... you matter❤️ Edit - *WE NEED U CHILE!*

I am mainly disappointed in the people who fancy these narratives and would rather see these type of shows then ones that inspire you. I understand where she coming , If you pay attention , the network creates these issue ruin relationships, marriages etc just for a good show, and them contracts are in hell. literally. the only thing she can do is speak her truth. People that know Tamar know that she is nothing like she is Portrayed on the show, she was tired..

  • Everyone is so quick to say she’s acting and she’s pretending.... she literally tried to kill herself. You’re not ok talking about that or why caused it when the wound is still fresh. Pretending to be ok is how she copes. I know because I’m going through the same thing she is. Tamar needs time to heal and really let go. I’m glad she spoke her truth and was willing to do this interview but Queen, keep your head up. Don’t let this define you! God puts us through everything for a reason. You’re talented, beautiful and blessed. Don’t let anything stop you from believing that!

It destroys lives especially the women.. Well in hell they will lift their eyes. I hope that's not the case with Tamar and the others. And wtf would one of her family members tell such a hurtful family secret?? That's definitely not right and I hope they have a hard time sleeping at night knowing they where part of the cause Tay went off the deep end.. DAMN SHAME!!!!

You hurt because you weren’t protected. Get off the air and go away from the cameras and interviews and heal!!!!

  • Yikes, this reminds me that when you get around someone who is giving you negativity or presenting toxic energy, you have to realize that they are truly truly damaged and unhealthy mentally. It helps me to know that I do not need to engage, feel anger, or entangle myself with these people - even people in my family. Need to keep up my own strength during difficult times and not hold negativity in my own heart so that I can maintain my own healthy mental state. When she said she had not been happy for years, I sympathized and I empathized - which I had never been able to before for her as I found her personality off-putting and negative. Good interview - we do not own celebrities lives so when they decide to share it with us, we should be considerate in certain spaces - like this one. Also, its strange that I don't feel the need to judge her - when in the past I have definitely judged her harshly. But in this space, it seems clear to me that anyone who lives this type of chaotic, unbalanced life - is truly in need of good mental health adjustment - so does it matter if she is "acting", "if she is putting on a show" - not really because whatever she is doing - it is clear to me that she is not in a. healthy place and had not been for a good long time since she has been in the public eye.

  • Mental illness is a very serious issue and it should be taken extremely serious however she still acting. She talks about not wanting to be portrayed a certain way, well then stop acting the way that you don't want to be portrayed. I pray for her and I hope she gets better, no one deserves to suffer. However, I've never been a follower, I've never been a fan, and I've never been impressed with her. She's always been a selfish, self-centered, childish, narcissistic etc, etc, etc individual. There were more times than not when she would appear on a segment of Braxton Family Values where I would fast forward thru her segment or just walk out of the room all together until she was done and it wouldn't move to something/someone else. Like I said I hope she gets better but I don't like her as a person and apparently neither does she.... 🤷🏼‍♂️

Next, she must own the consequences of her adult choices. It will take time and truth. That entire family was unclear and unready for the healing process that Iyanla offered them. I wish her health and peace.

  • WE TV has always been toxic, look what happen to Mary Mary, Marriage Boot Camp, Growing up Hip Hop, Kendra on Top all these people signed a contract and WE exploited them for $$. Guess what they can’t do nothing about it because they signed a contract. Especially when shit goes high and right. She telling the world she didn’t want to do the show no more because they (family & producers) were acting devilish. You have to portray someone else on these shows. Why? Because being you won’t get high ratings. The world feeds off of drama, pain, misery, violence, lies, sex, scandals. All this for the price of fame! She signed up with the others but not to extend it has gone. She now has a shitty rep! The ABW...the most disrespectful word in the plant. Tamar was the loudest, most interesting next to Toni. If you notice Toni was not letting them get that close to her with the exception of the Birdman fiasco and that turned on its head too. She made WE money and now they want to sue because she can no longer deliver. Forget mental health?! Make sure money. But think about this...,someone in her family, people whom she trusted. One of them betrayed her for $$ to put something so horrible out there for the world to see and hear. The million dollar question is why?? Heck, TD Jakes couldn’t do nothing with them because they were all too far gone! Fame does this to everyone....when will people learn. You don’t have to believe me, Google all the stars that have died due to suicide, unsolved murder, murder for hire...the list goes on. But as always people will write this comment off🥱 because no one like to hear the truth.
