Tamar Braxton Goes Off on Iyanla Vanzant, Demands Her to Stop ‘Name Calling’

Iyanla Vanzant had a tense interaction with Tamar Braxton as the life coach worked to help the singer and her family through their issues on “Braxton Family Values.”

On a preview for Thursday night’s season finale of the WE tv series, Braxton enters into a heated dialogue with Vanzant and barely lets her get a word in edgewise.

“You really don’t quit with this name-calling,” Braxton fires at the host of OWN’s “Iyanla Fix My Life.” “I’m not here for that. ‘I now want to be seen?’ You really gotta watch your mouth … who talks to me like that? Who talks to anybody like that?”

“I do, I do,” Vanzant says as Braxton speaks over her. “Because I love you. I love you. I love you.”

“I ain’t talking to you like that,” Braxton continues. “You want to be seen and now you’re being abusive ’cause you’re cutting me off. Now your attitude is abusive. You’re abusive sis.”

Vanzant points out that during the family mediation, Braxton has been cutting people off “all day.” But the single mom doesn’t back down.

“How you gon’ tell me how to act if you’re acting the exact same way?” she says. “You’re being abusive, you’re cutting me off.”

Vanzant then pointedly asks Braxton if she wants to have this talk. Braxton hits back with a question of her own.

“Do you?” she says looking Vanzant up and down. “Because I don’t appreciate you keep throwing out these names. What about my disrespect? All I have been is respectful. I’ve been called…”

The star does not slow her roll until her the Braxton family matriarch calls on her to stop.

“Wait a minute!” mom Evelyn Braxton interjects. “Calm down.”

It’s not clear exactly what caused so much agitation but fans have been chiming in on the interaction ahead of the season 6 finale.

“Iyanla confronted tamar on her behavior and she couldn’t accept the fact that shes ratchet.”

“You never talk to your elders like that 😮”

“Wow Tamar she is not acting right at all.”

“What name calling ? I didn’t hear no curse words just the truth from Iyanla and she don’t like it and she is right ..Tamar always wanted to be seen #OVERTHETOP.”
