Tamar Braxton Refuses to Discuss Iyanla Vanzant Interview: I Was a ‘Sacrificial Lamb’

Tamar Braxton is not keen on discussing her explosive confrontation with life coach Iyanla Vanzant last week, even though fans are dying to know her view on things.

When the singer went on Instagram Live to discuss her play with Snoop Dogg, “Redemption of a Dogg,” recently, fans quickly began peppering her with questions. The inquiries concerned the dramatic season finale of “Braxton Family Values” last week that saw her refusing to back down from Vanzant.

“You really don’t quit with this name-calling,” Braxton told the host of OWN’s “Iyanla Fix My Life” on the BVF finale Thursday, Oct. 4 “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?”

So when the star launched a live stream over the weekend, her followers wanted to know more about what went down.

“Iyanla tho!!!” someone said.

“I don’t want to talk about her, I don’t,” Braxton says. “You can’t — you know how sometimes you can’t give nobody no more? I can’t give you no more. Get it from somebody else ’cause it’s not from me. I really can’t because it is what it is and I really don’t want to go back but that’s all Ima say about that.”

Braxton tried to move on to talk to her play, in which she plays an angel, but fans wouldn’t let up.

“I don’t like how you came for Ms. Iyanla…it’s not cute,” one commenter said.

“Do you know what happened?” Braxton hits back at the IG user. “Ima sit here and wait for you to type. Because Ima be that petty and write back.”

The star made another attempt to redirect the conversation back to the play, which opens this month, but was thwarted once more. Another user congratulated Braxton on BFV’s high ratings, which they said was “breaking records.”

Show Buzz Daily reported that ratings for BFV went from 0.11 to 0.31 in the 18-49 demographic.

“Well, you know. Coming from the sacrificial lamb. That part,” Braxton said quietly.

Braxton’s confrontation with Vanzant was part of a family mediation session that saw the singer, her sisters and their parents hash out their issues.
