Fans of Tamar Braxton are supporting the reality star after the 43-year-old took to social media on Wednesday, to bash WE TV for their newly released trailer for “Braxton Family Values,” one which showed her family’s initial response to her purported suicide attempt over the summer.
The “Love and War” singer, who plans to sit for a tell-all interview with Tamron Hall next week, said on Oct. 21, “After waking up to that disgusting trailer… F— @wetv and whomever else is participating in using my pain for their pleasure and ratings. Don’t miss my exclusive TELL ALL on my girl @tamronhall show next week‼️… at some point this abuse HAS to STOP‼️‼️”
Many of her Tamaritians — the nickname for the Tamar fan base — offered the mother of one words of encouragement during this time.
“Take care of you and Logan first @TamarBraxtonHer your real fans love you I don’t even watch @WEtv anymore boycott anything that would cause you this much distress.”
“THEY ARE TRYING TO BREAK YOU BABY‼️ BUT YOU WILL PREVAIL ‼️‼️‼️‼️🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾.”
“Don’t even give them the time of day in any response, let your future do the talking Tamar…your fans got you no matter what! Xoxo.”
“I just saw that promo this morning also. I would think it would be triggering for you. Praying you’re doing better now.”
“When you’re in the spotlight…you have to take the Good with the Bad, hun. God got you…this too shall pass!!!”
The teaser started off with Toni Braxton in a confessional saying that 2020 “has been a year like never before” for her and her family. It was revealed that the 53-year-old received the news while she was in the studio. The “BFV” matriarch Evelyn Braxton as well as her daughters Towanda Braxton and Trina Braxton also appeared and shared their thoughts about the ordeal. Towanda said she “was stunned and really numb” upon hearing about what happened to Tamar, while Trina expressed there “was no way to prepare for this.”
As the Braxtons are gearing up for the seventh season of their reality show to hit the air, the family will be opening up about the “Crazy Kind Of Love” singer’s struggles during the summer. According to TMZ, Tamar was found unresponsive in a Los Angeles hotel in July by her now-ex David Adefeso, who called 911 and suggested she’d overdosed on some combination of pills and alcohol. On the 911 recording Adefeso implied that Tamar tried to harm herself because of problems she was having with “the network.” Tamar and We TV have since parted ways.
This isn’t the first time the family addressed Tamar’s hospitalization. In an interview with the “Ricky Smiley Morning Show” back in August, Toni touched on how everyone was holding up.
“My sister Tamar had a little situation, but it’s not my business to tell her business. But I can say that our family is doing so much better, we’re in a healthier place. And, I have to tell people that mental illness is not a joke.”
This season will also show Traci Braxton trying to reconcile with her family, and Toni canceling her tour because of the global pandemic. “BFV” is set to air on Nov. 5.
