Tamar Braxton was rushed to the emergency room late last night after being found "unresponsive" in her hotel room.

In medical terminology, the word "unresponsive" usually means the person is not breathing.

But no sooner did the news break last night, than industry insiders and fans began speculating whether her suicide attempt was a "publicity stunt" to promote her new show.

The reality star was hospitalized after allegedly swallowing a handful of pills at the Ritz Carlton Residences in Los Angeles.

The 43-year-old singer was staying with boyfriend David Adefeso at the Ritz when the incident occurred.

He called 911, claiming Tamar had been drinking and had taken an unknown amount of prescription pills.

The suicide attempt comes the same day a publicist sent emails to the blogs promoting her new reality show "Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!".

Tamar has been dragged in the past for publicity stunts to promote her reality shows.

A spokesperson for the Braxton Family Values star also told The Blast: "Tamar has had a very tough and emotional day - more information will be coming in the next few days. Please pray for her."
