Fans of the daytime talk show were shocked late last month when show reps and the 39-year-old herself announced she would exit to concentrate on her solo singing career, before the start of the third season after serving as one of its five original co-hosts since the series' debut in 2013. Tamar is the first The Real cast member to leave the series.
In what marked her first on-air comments since the news broke, Tamar talked about her shocking exit on Steve Harvey's radio show The Steve Harvey Morning Show Thursday, confirming what many thought—that it was not her decision.
"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," she said. "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."
