WEtv to honor Tamar Braxton's request to end future work
LOS ANGELES – WEtv will honor Tamar Braxton’s request to end future work together, but the network expects to premiere the singer’s reality show next month. Her reality series called “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!” was expected to premiere last week, but the show has been postponed to Sept. 10. “Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade,” the statement said. She wrote about her career demands on the reality series being “excessive and unfair” in a recent social media post. Braxton made a splash in pop culture when she and her sisters, including Grammy-winning singer Toni Braxton, launched their reality series “Braxton Family Values” on Wetv in 2011.
