Iyanla Vanzant Reportedly Fires Back At Tamar Braxton Trashing Her On TV & On Social Media — Video

Tamar Braxton better put her legal team on speed dial.

As we told you recently, the Braxton Sisters not named Traci have ended their walk-out for season 6 to tape the season finale with Iyanla Vanzant.

The Inspirational speaker & TV personality is known for her intriguing methods on making people confront how their past affects their present — and everything in between.

The Fix My Life host was brought in to help repair the severed relationships of Traci, Trina, Toni, Towanda, Tamar and their parents, Evelyn and Michael. 

Entertainment Tonight shared photos from the set with the family in a half circle as they opened up about issues.

The OWN TV star's involvement was reportedly introduced by Traci Braxton, who wanted the life coach to facilitate in having her sisters support her career more.

As previously reported, WE tv and the Production team of the show were left scrambling after all of Tamar, Toni, Tawanda, Trina and Mama Evelyn walked off the set until their contracts were re-negotiated at the end of June.  Apparently, their wardrobe and travel funds are incredibly low and their pay needs to be raised to an "acceptable" level.

Traci opted to stick around for the check as she continued to film amid the family walk out.  To keep the cameras rolling, Traci and BFV producers approached former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks to co-star as Kim Whitley, Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard and Flava Flav filmed guest appearances as well.

Reportedly, the siblings decision to  do group therapy with Iyanla did more harm than help.

After Tamar walked out in the middle of the therapy session, Tamar, with help of her friend, called her out on social media as they referred to Iyanla as “the Devil” and by her government name Rhonda.


During Tamar’s appearance on The Wendy Williams Show the other day, Tamar addressed rumors that she had stormed away from a session with her family and with celebrity therapist Iyanla Vanzant.

“A lot of things happened in my childhood that I was too afraid to talk about," Tamar explained.

"The truth of the matter is I have been molested by both sides of my family and it’s nothing I ever talked about and nothing I ever thought that I would sit around the table with Iyanla who’s here to talk about me and my sisters and their problems and to bring that up and shamed me basically in front of everybody. So, that’s why I got up and walked out,” Tamar noted.


Well, it seems as though Iyanla is threatening to sue? is now insisting that Iyanla may be preparing to take legal action for defamation against the network and the production company.

First for Tamar’s claims that the family appeared on her series “Iyanla Fix My Life” when, in actuality, Iyanla was appearing on “Braxton Family Values” and second for Tamar insulting Iyanla on social media.

“Referring to Iyanla as a ‘fake’ and a ‘fraud’ could have serious implications on the casting process for Iyanla Fix My Life and her reputation in general. it’s her duty to protect her reputation, brand and OWN’s brand. At this point, this is defamation and there should be consequences.”

The OWN network made it clear that they have no involvement in the dispute; Iyanla would ideally settle this out of court. What do you think Iyanla should do?

The two-part season finale of Braxton Family Values with Iyanla Vanzant will air on Thursday, Sept, 27 and Thursday, Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. on WE tv.
