WEtv Releases Tamar Braxton From Contract For ALL Future Projects, But Will Still Air ‘Get Ya Life’ As Planned [Details]

Posted July 31, 2020

Following her lengthy statement where she broke her silence on her recent suicide attempt, and issues with WEtv, the network has announced that they are officially letting Tamar Braxton out of her contract with the network.

The network released an official statement on Friday revealing that she will no longer be contractually obligated to any of the shows she has on the network including ‘Braxton Family Values‘ or her solo series ‘Get Ya Life’ which is set to air in September–but the show WILL still air.

via TMZ:

Tamar Braxton’s upcoming reality show will still be released, but the network says it’s honoring her request and severing ties with her going forward … following her recent suicide attempt.

WE tv says … “Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade. As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network.”

The network adds that it wishes her nothing but the best, and confirms with TMZ that Tamar’s new series, ‘Get Ya Life!,’ will premiere Sept. 10.

Remember, the show was supposed to debut July 30, but got postponed after Tamar’s apparent suicide attempt on July 16 at an L.A. hotel. Tamar called it “my attempt to end my pain and my life.”

Tamar opened up about the incident, claiming years of mistreatment in reality TV pushed her to the brink. She claims over 2 months ago, she wrote a letter to WE tv asking to be freed from her contract because of the “demise” she was experiencing … but says her cry for help was ignored.

Sources close to Tamar told us she was upset over her portrayal on the first episode of “Get Ya Life!” and felt she was lied to by producers.

In case you missed Tamar’s open letter from yesterday, get into it below.

First and foremost, Thank you. Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support. In this present moment, it is my only responsibility to be real with myself and to be real with the ones who truly love me and care for my healing. I have without fail, shared with you my brightest days, and I know that sharing with you what has been my darkest will be the light for any man or woman who is feeling the same defeat I felt just only a week ago. Every one of us has a desire, whether small or big, to make it out of where we come from to an ideal future place that includes, freedom to be who we choose, security for our children and families, and fortune to share with the ones we love. We believe these things can co-exist with just being happy. I believed that, that as a black woman, as an artist, an influence, a personality I could shape my world, and with whom I believed to be my partners, they could help me share my world. Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most. There are a few things I count on most to be, a good mother, a good daughter, a good partner, a good sister, and a good person. Who I was, begun to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter. It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight. I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me. Mental illness is real. We have to normalize acknowledging it and stop associating it with shame and humiliation. The pain that I have experienced over the past 11 years has slowly ate away at my spirit and my mental.
