Even though the intense intervention between spiritual healer Iyanla Vanzant and the Braxton family was reality TV gold, the fact of the matter is, real lives and real connections are at risk beneath all the drama of entertainment.
Tamar, who actually walked out of the heated session, spoke to Bravo’s Andy Cohen about why she made the decision to exist the scene.
“I had to, it was a lot of things that came out that wasn’t really supposed to, or that I didn’t know that anyone had had conversations about,” the mom of one revealed.
“I was, you know, devastated,” she continued.
“The whole point of the matter is sometimes you have to leave a situation and go gather yourself to come back you know what I mean? Who wants to sit there and watch their family fight all day long, I know I can’t. I’m tired as hell, and it’s tiring to watch.”
Cohen then went on to ask Tay Tay if she was in touch with any of her family members. It looks like she still has good rapport with two of her sisters, and her mom.
“I talked to my mom last night. I talked to Towanda last night. I talked to Toni last night. She has lupus, but she’s in the hospital and so I make sure she’s ok, so I’m going to go to Atlanta and check on her and so she’s okay.”

While she was on the couch, Cohen pried Tamar on if she would ever return to “The Real,” after the former co-host’s recent appearance on The Breakfast Club.
“The last time I spoked to them was at the Emmys,” Tamar said. “Would I return to do what?”
“To be on the show, sweetie,” Andy Cohen continued.
“I don’t know — Andy, you’re the best!” Tamar responded, gently brushing against the shade of it all.
“I have a feeling the answer is no!” Andy said.
