Tamar Braxton and WE tv have officially severed ties, following Braxton's emotional open letter about the "toxic" reality TV environment.

In a new statement from WE tv, obtained exclusively by Variety, the network said, "Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade. As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing but the best,” reads the WE tv statement.

The decision comes just one day after Braxton said the network "betrayed, overworked, and underpaid" her.

Until now, Braxton was the second highest paid star on the network, behind only her sister, Toni Braxton.

On Thursday, July 30, the 43-year-old R&B singer broke her silence about WE tv's betrayal that drove her to attempt suicide.

"First and foremost, Thank you," she wrote. "Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support."

Braxton said producers betrayed her deep dark secret that she was repeatedly raped from age 6 to 16.

"Over the past 11 years, there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave," the singer said. "I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid."

Braxton eventually appealed to network officials at WeTV two months ago to release her from her "excessive and unfair" contract, but stated, "My cry for help went totally ignored."

"Who I was, begun [sic] to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter," she continued. "It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight. I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me."

She went on to insist, "Mental illness is real," and credited "God's grace and His mercy" with saving her life, as she vowed to use her voice going forward to ensure no other reality stars face the kind of exploitation she insists she was subjected to for over a decade.

Braxton's new reality TV series "Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life" will premiere on WE tv on Sept. 10.

Singer Tamar Braxton broke her silence about the "toxic" reality TV environment that drove her to attempt suicide.

The 43-year-old R&B star was hospitalized in Los Angeles on July 16 after her boyfriend, David Adefeso, found her disoriented and lethargic in her hotel suite after she apparently swallowed a handful of prescription pills.

She spent several days in a coma but has since regained consciousness and is currently being treated for mental health issues.

On Thursday, July 30, Braxton opened up about her suicide attempt in a candid post on Instagram.

Alongside a photo of herself and her seven-year-old son, Logan Herbert, Braxton began by thanking fans for their well wishes.

"First and foremost, Thank you," she wrote. "Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support."

"In this present moment, it is my only responsibility to be real with myself and to be real with the ones who truly love me and care for my healing," she continued.

"I have without fail, shared with you my brightest days, and I know that sharing with you what has been my darkest will be the light for any man or woman who is feeling the same defeat I felt just only a week ago."

Braxton explained life under the reality TV spotlight has slowly eaten away at her spirit, and blamed producers behind her family series Braxton Family Values of doing little to help with her mental health struggles, particularly over the last five years, during which she split from her now ex-husband and manager Vincent Herbert.

She claimed to have been betrayed by show producers, who "filmed the damage made, for monetary gain".

"Over the past 11 years, there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave," the singer added. "I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid."

"I will make it my mission to establish the initiative that fights for ethical business practices in reality TV, fights the ownership of our businesses, promotes growth and evolution of our stories, and gives us 100 per cent equity in our freedom," she added.

The star's candid statement comes days after WeTV bosses chose to postpone the premiere of her new reality series, Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life, which had been due to launch on Thursday, July 30.

The series will premiere on Sept. 10.

First and foremost, Thank you. Thank you to each and every individual who has prayed for me, thought of me, sent me their love and has showered me with their support. In this present moment, it is my only responsibility to be real with myself and to be real with the ones who truly love me and care for my healing. I have without fail, shared with you my brightest days, and I know that sharing with you what has been my darkest will be the light for any man or woman who is feeling the same defeat I felt just only a week ago. Every one of us has a desire, whether small or big, to make it out of where we come from to an ideal future place that includes, freedom to be who we choose, security for our children and families, and fortune to share with the ones we love. We believe these things can co-exist with just being happy. I believed that, that as a black woman, as an artist, an influence, a personality I could shape my world, and with whom I believed to be my partners, they could help me share my world. Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most. There are a few things I count on most to be, a good mother, a good daughter, a good partner, a good sister, and a good person. Who I was, begun to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter. It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight. I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me. Mental illness is real. We have to normalize acknowledging it and stop associating it with shame and humiliation. The pain that I have experienced over the past 11 years has slowly ate away at my spirit and my mental.

NeNe Leakes called out a former co-worker for selfishly using her for their personal gain. The mom-of-two made the comment on Twitter.com on Friday.

"Have you ever worked with a sociopath who used you for their personal gain to achieve what they want for themselves."

She followed up with, "You see there's something wrong, You know something is wrong but you do nothing to stop it. Why? Do you lack empathy?"

Some of NeNe's followers guessed she was calling out Andy Cohen, who previously worked as a producer for Bravo before stepping down.

As you know, a sociopath is a mentally and emotionally unstable person who suffers from antisocial personality disorder or narcissism.

Many sociopaths are socially likable people who tend to be charming, handsome and regarded highly by their peers.

But they lack empathy for others, and they can be manipulative and deceitful. A sociopath is a backstabber who smiles in your face while twisting the knife.

The entertainment industry is full of sociopaths and narcissists. Some would say NeNe herself is a narcissist who uses others for her own selfish needs.

Question: Who do you think NeNe is referring to?

Former Bad Girls Club star Demitra "Mimi" Roche passed away on Wednesday at age 34. Her death was announced by her former colleague and record producer Vince Valholla, founder of Valholla Entertainment.

Roche worked at Valholla Entertainment as vice president of A&R at the independent record label.

"I'm at a loss for words. Don't know what to say," Valholla wrote on Twitter. "Mimi was kind to everyone she came across. She was big dreamer & was part of our Valholla family. I'm heartbroken by the news of her passing. I'm thankful I got to know & work w/her."

Roche, who recently celebrated her 34th birthday, starred in Bad Girls Club season 8, which aired on Oxygen Network in 2012. Roche was known as "Miami Maverick" on the show.

The series centered around a group of women who lived in a mansion for three months.

Roche's death comes nearly 2 weeks after the unexpected death of YouTube star Nicole Thea, 24, who died of a massive heart attack while 8 months pregnant. Her unborn son, named Reign, did not survive.

Tamar Braxton's family is wondering why her boyfriend' brought up her beef with WeTV during his 911 call to report her apparent suicide attempt.

The family is alarmed by his negative influence over Tamar's emotions.

Sources connected to the Braxton family tell TMZ, Tamar's boyfriend, David Adefeso, was upset about WeTV's pilot episode and promo trailer that was sent to the blogs late last week for her new reality show, "Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!"

TMZ claims David got angry about the show's content, and how he was portrayed in it -- and his reaction, in turn, made Tamar upset enough to try and take her own life.

FayesVision/WENN.com

TMZ broke the story: when David called 911, he took time to explain Tamar had issues with WeTV that came to a head in the hours leading up to him finding her overdosed on prescription pills in their Ritz Carlton Residences apartment.

FayesVision/WENN.com

TMZ's sources say Tamar's relatives, including her mom, Evelyn (pictured right), find it strange David discussed details of her alleged network beef while she was desperately in need of medical attention. The family believes it is further proof David was the one who really had issues with the show's editorial choices.

Tamar's family noticed a change in her mentally since she started seeing David, according to TMZ's sources, who say Tamar's mood swings tend to align with how David's feeling. They also say he's "very involved" in her business decisions.

As for David's portrayal in the pilot, someone who's seen the episode says David comes off as demanding and controlling.

In the episode, Tamar decides to go on a spiritual healing journey, which includes no sex for 45 days, something that really upsets David.

During one scene, Tamar and David are arguing behind a locked door and Tamar yells, "David, stop!" before producers barge into the room.

"Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!" premieres Thursday, July 30 at 10pm only on WE tv.

Phaedra Parks says business is booming during the coronavirus pandemic. Parks, who is currently on "Marriage Bootcamp", is a licensed funeral director and mortician.

She told Page Six that business is "booming" due to the loss of lives caused by the pandemic.

"Oh my gosh, it's going great," she gushed during a Page Six podcast on Wednesday. "Didn't you hear about that pandemic, girl? We are booming. Unfortunately. We have been jam-packed since the pandemic started."

Patricia Schlein/WENN.com

Parks said she's seen the devastation caused by the infectious disease.

"I'm not a physician, however, I do have a mortuary and I'll tell you this: Normally in the summer months, we're waiting for a boating accident or a motorcycle crash, because otherwise, we're pretty empty," she said.

"We are jam-packed. We are working like it's our heaviest season, so… I tell people when they say, 'It's a joke, it's not that big of a deal,' well, let me put it to you in real terms, I'm getting 17 calls a day for [corpse] pickups and that's at one location. Last week, all of the people were under 59."

Derrick Salters/WENN.com

She said seeing so many victims in their 20s "makes it extremely frightening… I've seen several mothers come in burying their children... the pandemic really wreaks havoc on families, so we've buried three or four people in one immediate family. It's really sad. It definitely takes a toll on you emotionally seeing a mother, a father, a son, an aunt… this pandemic is really serious and people should realize that, because it's not a joke."

Parks, who is currently in a long distance relationship with L.A.-based boyfriend Medina Islam, said the heavy workload gives her little time to cultivate her love life.

"I've got several jobs. But when it comes to relationships, I haven't always been so successful with it," Parks said of her decision to go on Marriage Bootcamp. "I wanted to make sure that the passion didn't cloud my judgment, because… when you're entangled, sometimes the entangling can be so good you can't really [think] outside the entanglement."

NeNe Leake's reign over Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members has come to an end.

According to earlier reports, NeNe was canned by Bravo execs after years of intolerable behavior and insubordination on the set.

NeNe is reportedly preparing a racial discrimination lawsuit against Bravo, even as she is busy filming her new reality show over at E! TV.

The 52-year-old former stripper landed a new show on the E! Television network titled Glamsquad Showdown.

According to gossip blogger B. Scott, NeNe will soon go public with allegations of racial discrimination against True Entertainment and Bravo.

B. Scott also reports that NeNe was pushed out the door in favor of younger and fresher talent. NeNe was reportedly replaced by actress Drew Sidora, 35, and mom blogger and YouTube star LaToya Forever, 33.

Over the past few months there have been reports that NeNe wasn't offered a contract extension for the next season of RHOA.

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo Network and her manager broke down after the mom-of-two demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise which she turned down.

Prince Williams/ATLpics.net

NeNe was reportedly "hurt and depressed" over losing her six figure per episode salary on RHOA.

A source says the New York native was worried because she's responsible for three households, including her $2.1 million, six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath mansion in Duluth, her eldest son's home, and a rental property on the West Coast.

NeNe is the sole supporter for her unemployed husband, Gregg Leakes, a colon cancer survivor. Her manager vehemently denied the reports that she was fired from the show.

NeNe Leakes is all smiles after it was confirmed she's landed her own reality TV series after losing her peach on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The 52-year-old reality TV star was unceremoniously fired for insubordination and just a general bad attitude on the set of RHOA.

But the sassy former stripper landed a new show on the E! Television network title Glamsquad Showdown.

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo Network and her manager broke down after the mom-of-two demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise but she turned it down.

NeNe is the sole supporter for her unemployed husband, Gregg Leakes, a colon cancer survivor, whom she reportedly cheated on with a younger man.

The source says NeNe's finances have been impacted by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

With little money coming in from her clothing boutiques, NeNe reportedly took out loans to keep her finances afloat.

Her first round of applications for a federal grant and a PPP loan in March were rejected according to another source.

NeNe Leakes responded to allegations that she was let go from Real Housewives of Atlanta for insubordination and being a b*tch to her castmates.

"I promise I'll be the first to tell you myself! Thanks you for the love," she tweeted on Thursday, after blogger B. Scott reported she was fired from the reality TV series on his blog, lovebscott.com.

NeNe's manager also shut down rumors that she was dismissed from the cast after repeated acts of insubordination on and off the set.

"It is absolutely not true that Nene has been fired from RHOA," Leakes' manager, Steven Grossman tells PEOPLE. "Furthermore, it was made abundantly clear prior that she will always be welcome on the series as long as she wants to be."

But B. Scott stands by his sources, and refused to retract his article.

A confidential source told Sandrarose.com that NeNe was "hurt and depressed" after being dismissed from Bravo's longest-running 'Real Housewives' franchise.

"She thinks her friends have abandoned her and she can't trust anyone."

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo and her manager reportedly broke down after NeNe demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise in her letter.

It isn't clear why NeNe turned down the raise - or if she thought the 5% was beneath her.

A spokesperson for Bravo denied the reports that Leakes was not ousted from the series.

"There is no truth to this story- NeNe was not fired and conversations for the next season are still ongoing," the spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

Remember, celebrity managers are paid to shield their clients from the truth.

NeNe Leakes reacted to reports that she was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta by posting an Internet meme that shows her laughing out loud (see below).

She captioned the image: "I can't chileeeeeeee."

But behind closed doors, friends say NeNe is "hurt and depressed" after being dismissed from Bravo's longest-running 'Real Housewives' franchise.

"She's hurt and depressed," an insider whispered to Sandrarose.com late Wednesday night. "She thinks her friends have abandoned her and she can't trust anyone."

The source said NeNe was "shocked" by her sudden termination, which was first reported by blogger B. Scott on Wednesday.

Bravo Network overnighted pickup letters via FedEx and emailed to the cast and their attorney of record, according to TamaraTattles.com.

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo and her rep broke down after NeNe demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise in her letter.

It isn't clear why NeNe turned down the raise - or if she thought the 5% was beneath her.

Cast member Eva Marcille quit before she was fired. She reportedly earned a meager $7,500 per episode last season.

NeNe Leakes has been fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta, blogger B. Scott reports exclusively.

Sources tell lovebscott.com that NeNe has not been offered a contract to return to season 13 of the longest running Real Housewives franchise that she co-created.

B. Scott said it's not surprising that she's been let go. NeNe's insubordination on and off the set and ongoing friction between her and other RHOA cast members led directly to her termination.

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic

Another cast member, Eva Marcille, announced her resignation from the show rather than face the humiliation of being fired.

NeNe's list of violations include:

1. Starting off season 12 suspended following her physical altercation with one of the cameramen in season 11.

2. Popping off on a producer and walking off set while filming in Greece — in addition to not appearing in other episodes.

3. Walked off set multiple times during the season 12 virtual reunion.

4. Demanded the termination of former Executive Producer Andy Cohen.

5. Made not-so-subtle threats to sue the network.

Social media reacted to NeNe's termination:
