Issa Warning: Here's Why Iyanla Vanzant Says Tamar Braxton Should Not Be On Reality TV Anymore — Video

Will it ever end?

Tamar Braxton and Iyanla Vanzant do not seem to be on the same page. Not even going to get into the lawsuit component right now

“You really don’t quit with this name-calling,” Tamar snapped at Iyanla on-air, during a sit-down between her family and the life coach. “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?”

“I do, I do,” Iyanla responded, as Tamar talked over her. “Because I love you. I love you. I love you.”

“I ain’t talking to you like that,” Tamar said. “You want to be seen and now you’re being abusive ’cause you’re cutting me off. Now your attitude is abusive. You’re abusive, sis.”

Iyanla then pointed out that Tamar had been interrupting others “all day.” 

“How you gon’ tell me how to act if you’re acting the exact same way?” Tamar demanded. “You’re being abusive, you’re cutting me off.”

“Wait a minute!” mom Evelyn Braxton then interjected. “Calm down... We will respect her!"”

It didn't stop there as Miss Evelyn got her all the way together as Tamar tried to get bratty with her.

Well, about a week after the explosive finale of Braxton Family Values aired on WE tv, a report has emerged that claims Iyanla doesn’t feel Tamar is suited for reality television.


“Iyanla feels like Tamar craves attention and she’ll eventually destroy her own life and continue to damage her family’s relationships with one another,” a source told theJasmineBRAND. “She doesn’t think that reality TV is a good place for her.”

Beyond that, she thinks “might not be well” and “wants Tamar to get some help.”

Among the issues Tamar tried to sort through with her family, with Iyanla’s help, revolve around the reality show group trying to forgive Traci for continuing to shoot BFV while the rest of the family went on strike this summer.

“Forgive me for not showing you compassion and sympathy when you really needed it,” Tamar tearfully told to Traci. “And for real being the shoulder you needed to cry on, a person for you to lean on — not half ass but wholeheartedly. I’m so sorry because I know that you needed that.”

And in a portion that was evidently left on the cutting room floor, Tamar’s childhood admission of being “touched” by various family family members that cropped up in discussions. 

“A lot of things happened in my childhood that I was too afraid to talk about," Tamar noted. "The truth of the matter is I have been [touched] 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”.

Iyanla is also supposedly threatening to sue Tamar for bashing her online, so that’s not helping matters, it seems?

The whole situation is unfortunate. What do you think?
