It's no secret that the Braxton sisters all love each other. It's also no secret that, even though they're all famous, the go through the same ups and downs, likes and dislikes that regular siblings go through too. The ladies have been struggling as of late to come together for their reality show, Braxton Family Values, and it's taking a toll on their relationships with each other.
Recently they all sat down with famed relationship and self-help guru Iyanla Vanzant to film an episode of her show "Iyanla: Fix My Life" which airs on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Although the two-part "fixing" doesn't air until September 27th and October 4th, the clips that have surfaced haven't been so good.
Now allegedly Tamar walked off the set during the taping and she never returned when the water got too hot. We don't know exactly lead up to it but, we do know that the songbird had a recent meeting with Wendy Williams where she dropped a bombshell that may have been the walking papers for Iyanla's episode.
"Braxton sat down with Wendy Wednesday, and the two talked about the Braxton sister's recent visit with Iyanla Vanzant to help settle some family beef. Tamar stormed out of the meeting with Iyanla, but her reason for leaving was unknown.
We're told Wendy pressed her and that's when Tamar revealed she'd been molested by members of both sides of her family. Our sources say both Wendy and the audience were stunned.
It's unclear if something during the meeting with Iyanla triggered Tamar's memory, or if she just felt comfortable talking to Wendy about the incident.
Our sources in the audience say Williams -- who is in premiere week of her 10th season -- didn't ask for details about the alleged molestation. Tamar never named names."
YIKES! I've NEVER been one to doubt or discredit anyone's truth and my heart truly goes out to Tamar. She's been going through a lot lately and this revelation has to be both a weight lifted and a burden added. All 5 sisters and both parents were present for the Iyanla taping and I presume they will all be watching her Wendy show airing as well. This has got to be pure hell for her parents to hear ESPECIALLY if they didn't know years ago.
The episode of Wendy will air on Thursday so check your local listings for the channel and time!
I don't know about you but I'm definitely going to be tuning in to both shows to hear the truth for myself!
Tamar penned an open letter to address what went on during the Wendy Williams Show interview. Check it out.
"Today Wendy asked me what happened at my sisters meeting and why did I walk out. Since someone there decided that they would ask me about something so private, so embarrassing, so secretive in front of EVERYONE that was there, I felt like my life was flashing before my eyes and IMMEDIATELY started to cry. Not because someone decided to allow someone else to tell MY SECRET, not because I was asked if it were True in front of a hundred strangers, but because once again my right to choose was taken from me all over again.
I decided to Tell Wendy and the world MY secret, MYSELF that I have been a victim of abuse not once, twice, ten, but multiple times by multiple “family members” I’ve never told ANYONE other than Two people in my life and they both have held this close to them. One Being the man that I am with now and EVERY, SINGLE DAY he says I’m so beautiful and my scars makes me even more attractive. I felt that because this has happened to me recently, that something HAD to be done about people who DID know and tried to make People embarrassed and ashamed about something that has happened to them!!!
I never EVER again want anyone to feel so little and so small or even ashamed about something they had no control over. I wanted to create a space where you can tell your OWN story with out anyone commenting or making you feel ashamed EVER again!! Go to and tell your story and empower yourself starting today! I wanted you to know that no matter how many scars you have... you are the PRETTIEST 💕 I love you all so much noneedTBshame.com"
This was a brave step in the right direction.
