Braxton’s recent suicide attempt and her previous struggles for mental health – as she revealed in both a letter to the network and an Instagram post on Thursday – are inseparable from her battles with the network. WeTV currently has two series from Braxton: “Braxton’s Family Values” – now in its seventh season – and a future version of “Find Life!”;
Sources told Variety that the 43-year-old Braxton plans to appear in at least a few more series of “Braxton’s Family Values”, which began production before her last fights. “Find the life I am!” have already been delayed earlier this week, based on the situation with Braxton, but Variety sources believe that all six episodes of the completed first season of the show will air as planned, starting on September 10.
“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our online network for more than a decade,” WeTV said in a statement. “As she focuses on her health and recovery in a clearly difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to stop all future work of the network. We wish her nothing but the best. “
Braxton made many complaints about the network in a letter she sent to Brass WeTV a week before her suicide attempt, which she reported exclusively.
Braxton responded to a remark the network sent in describing its efforts to support the black community, with a fiery mission comparing its television bosses to the “cruel masters of the white slave who once chained our ancestors” and the repressive police forces that now terrorize our communities.
“I hope these ratings were worth it that you managed to destroy a big black family.”
She also accused them of revealing the secret of sexual assault and childhood violence “to my whole family and 100 crew members,” noting that she had previously kept it a secret even from her mother and that shame had pushed her as a result. to ponder the end of her life.
A family insider told Page Six that Braxton was also concerned about the choice of “Love and Hip Hop” producer Mon Scott Young to star in “Get Ya Life!”, Saying: “Tamar felt the ambush … [by the hiring of] the person she said she didn’t want to work with. “
In her Instagram post on Thursday, Braxton said she was “betrayed, used, overloaded and underpaid” by WeTV, adding that “reality TV personalities have no union, no protection, no formal representation to protect our work, our rights, our voices “before promising to fight for ethical business practices on reality television.
Variety notes that Tamar “has so far been the second most profitable talent in the history of WE TV, second only to her sister Tony.”
Tamar was hospitalized on July 16 for what was originally considered a drug overdose.
