Tamar Braxton had the unfortunate time during this pandemic where she was found in her room at the Ritz Carlton in LA 12 days ago unresponsive not long before being scheduled to shoot her web series Coupled & Quarantined with her boyfriend David Adefeso. The story that night was that she was “under the weather and not feeling well” according to a video posted by her team that evening. Further solidarity is now being shown by the network behind her upcoming show, Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!, originally set to air this Thursday but will instead do so September 10th.
A statement from Braxton’s network WeTV read, “Tamar Braxton has been an incredibly important member of the WE tv family for more than a decade, and our first concern is for her recovery and well-being. Given the current situation, we are postponing the premiere of Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life! until September 10. This series was conceived by Tamar and is a real portrait of a dynamic woman juggling the demands of being a single mother, a new relationship and her career.”
“We know, when the time is right, Tamar’s fans will relate to seeing this honest portrait of her life, but — at this moment — we are joining with her fans and sending strength and healing in the hope that she is getting the support and help she needs at this difficult time,” the statement continues.
Tamar has our prayers. And although we would like to say this is a shock, it honestly isn’t. The episode of her stepping out on Wendy Williams’ stage wearing nothing but Spanx and a shaved head saying it was liberating was a red flag in our heads. Just the same, Tamar is television gold. She is a memorable personality who is incredibly vocally talented with an amazing story. Knowing that her ex-husband Vince Herbert was physically abusing her, that has to contribute what she’s been experiencing. Suicide rates have been going up through the pandemic and it’s terrible to see someone with as much going for them as Tamar to come even this close to succumbing to such a fate.
