BOSSIP’s source also responded to rumors that the real reason Tamar was let go was because she “wasn’t testing well with focus groups.” According to our source while that’s partially true, it’s ultimately a cop-out.
“There is truth to that but it doesn’t tell the whole story,” a source tells BOSSIP. “That’s the excuse basically that was used. Based on the research she’s not testing well with the demographic that they’re trying to go for.”
The source also added that despite the testing, Tamar is the star of the show on set.
“Tamar has the most reliable fan base,” adds the source. “When you come to a taping of “The Real” the whole audience goes crazy, they don’t give a s** about the other people. She’s the one who inspires the passion in the audience, and I think that was a real threat for the executive producer.”
Behind the scenes Tamar is said to be in good company. “1/3 of the staff” has allegedly been let go due to Rachel “feeling threatened by them” or because they’ve “gotten too close” to the hosts.” On set, the axe gets cut nearly every Friday and there’s tension as staffers wait to see if they’re next on the chopping block.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” adds the source. “The entire staff at “The Real” is very much on edge. Any Friday you can be called in and let-go with really no knowledge of why. That’s basically what happened to Tamar.”
Poor Tamar, what do YOU think about her feeling betrayed by her EP???
