Tamar Braxton Gets New Talk Show Deal From Steve Harvey and Opens Up About Exit From ‘The Real'

Harvey announced Thursday he signed a deal to produce a TV talk show for Braxton

Tamar Braxton has a deal for a new talk show just days after exiting as a co-host of "The Real."

Comedian and talk show host Steve Harvey announced during an interview with Braxton on his radio show Thursday that he has signed a deal to produce a new TV talk show for Braxton.

The 39-year-old younger sister of Grammy-award winning singer Toni Braxton calls it an "AMAZING opportunity" in an Instagram post, but offered no other details on the program.

Braxton tells Harvey that her firing from "The Real" came "out of the blue" and no one has told her why she was let go following the show's second season.

Braxton was part of a five-person group on "The Real," including Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley.

The singer's reality show "Braxton Family Values," captured footage of Braxton soon after learning about the news of her "The Real" exit. A clip for Thursday's episode was posted online this week, showing her crying while being consoled by sister Toni.

"At the end of the day, I'm just like everybody else, when you hear something that's devastating and something that's very close to you," Braxton told Harvey. "I'm a regular person, a regular woman and I have feelings and at the end of the day, I got my heart broken. It just wasn't by a man."
