    This interview is honestly amazing , my cousin unfortunately took his own life a few years back and no one saw it coming (our family will honestly never heal from this) but I really feel like Tamar is so strong and incredible for speaking out about this and hopefully can inspire other people to seek support. I really hope Tamar is doing ok (as best as she can be 💗) and that she knows there are people out there supporting her as well as her family and friends xx Tamar you’re a beautiful strong woman and I wish you nothing but the best ❤️❤️

It’s all about her happiness 1st and then she can be able to display that love. She is broken. I pray that she heals and knows she is ENOUGH, every woman needs to know that💯 Be strong Tamar, Gods got you!!!!

No offense to Tamar but I want her to stop playing victim and really allow herself to HEAL!!! You not mad that ppl know u was mol***ed. U mad because someone mol***ed you sis! You hurt because you weren’t protected. Get off the air and go away from the cameras and interviews and heal!!!! We shouldn’t be seeing your face until more time has passed and you’ve fully processed your trauma. Trust me Tamar ain’t right just yet.

    Yikes, this reminds me that when you get around someone who is giving you negativity or presenting toxic energy, you have to realize that they are truly truly damaged and unhealthy mentally. It helps me to know that I do not need to engage, feel anger, or entangle myself with these people - even people in my family. Need to keep up my own strength during difficult times and not hold negativity in my own heart so that I can maintain my own healthy mental state. When she said she had not been happy for years, I sympathized and I empathized - which I had never been able to before for her as I found her personality off-putting and negative. Good interview - we do not own celebrities lives so when they decide to share it with us, we should be considerate in certain spaces - like this one. Also, its strange that I don't feel the need to judge her - when in the past I have definitely judged her harshly. But in this space, it seems clear to me that anyone who lives this type of chaotic, unbalanced life - is truly in need of good mental health adjustment - so does it matter if she is "acting", "if she is putting on a show" - not really because whatever she is doing - it is clear to me that she is not in a. healthy place and had not been for a good long time since she has been in the public eye.

    Mental illness is a very serious issue and it should be taken extremely serious however she still acting. She talks about not wanting to be portrayed a certain way, well then stop acting the way that you don't want to be portrayed. I pray for her and I hope she gets better, no one deserves to suffer. However, I've never been a follower, I've never been a fan, and I've never been impressed with her. She's always been a selfish, self-centered, childish, narcissistic etc, etc, etc individual. There were more times than not when she would appear on a segment of Braxton Family Values where I would fast forward thru her segment or just walk out of the room all together until she was done and it wouldn't move to something/someone else. Like I said I hope she gets better but I don't like her as a person and apparently neither does she.... 🤷🏼‍♂️

    Speak Tamar..It's not an allegation... It's a fact. I understand the legalities the host has to follow, that being said, her use of; "That's a big allegation;" was used in a tone that an abuse survivor, in this case, Tamar, could feel discredits and invalidates a life changing experience

    This interview was not wise. Tamar is in denial. She is unable to take control of her life until she is well enough to be honest and process that childhood trauma. Next, she must own the consequences of her adult choices. It will take time and truth. That entire family was unclear and unready for the healing process that Iyanla offered them. I wish her health and peace.

    WE TV has always been toxic, look what happen to Mary Mary, Marriage Boot Camp, Growing up Hip Hop, Kendra on Top all these people signed a contract and WE exploited them for $$. Guess what they can’t do nothing about it because they signed a contract. Especially when shit goes high and right. She telling the world she didn’t want to do the show no more because they (family & producers) were acting devilish. You have to portray someone else on these shows. Why? Because being you won’t get high ratings. The world feeds off of drama, pain, misery, violence, lies, sex, scandals. All this for the price of fame! She signed up with the others but not to extend it has gone. She now has a shitty rep! The ABW...the most disrespectful word in the plant. Tamar was the loudest, most interesting next to Toni. If you notice Toni was not letting them get that close to her with the exception of the Birdman fiasco and that turned on its head too. She made WE money and now they want to sue because she can no longer deliver. Forget mental health?! Make sure money. But think about this...,someone in her family, people whom she trusted. One of them betrayed her for $$ to put something so horrible out there for the world to see and hear. The million dollar question is why?? Heck, TD Jakes couldn’t do nothing with them because they were all too far gone! Fame does this to everyone....when will people learn. You don’t have to believe me, Google all the stars that have died due to suicide, unsolved murder, murder for hire...the list goes on. But as always people will write this comment off🥱 because no one like to hear the truth.

    Tamar is not being accountable for her actions against her family , you have to be completely honest with what you said , did and how the camera portrayed it in a negative setting but the camera don't add the energy viewed by us! She is so talented but she needs a therapy and a spiritual retreat to heal first then do your yourself a favor by learning how to heal, let go and forgive yourself too ! It wasn't your fault what happen to you as a child stemming to a teenager , predators offend pick victims base on the hunt of their own sexual deviants ! You've carried their secrets too long , you will suffer in pain , misery as they're humiliation , mauled the child inside and murdered basic emotions of a child now a woman who's falling apart yet still pretending !!!!

    I “understand“ that as a host you “have” to say “allegedly” but in this case of this beautiful woman giving you and everyone else the privilege to be invited into and try to understand her pain it seems so disingenuous. I love Tamar sooo much! My fellow God devoted and loving Pisces Queen! You are not alone and not everyone deserves the privilege of your authentic vulnerability. You can help in so many other ways. Most shows just want to be the one to have the “fresh story with the celebrity.” Yet not actually seek to humble themselves to get to the level they need to compassionately with the other person. I’m not feeling this hosts’ energy... at all. Like not even a mustard seed.
