Tamar Braxton Considers Leaving Show Due to Strain on Relationship With Sisters

The singer feels the hard work she's put into her career is being dismissed.

Could this be the end of Tamar Braxton's appearing on Braxton Family Values? During a recent interview with Renada Romain of Ear Candy Mornings, the singer said she's considering bowing out of her family's reality TV show because of the strain it's causing on her relationship with her sisters.

"I feel like I really work hard for everything I have. Nothing has been handed to me, no matter if people want to contribute that to Toni's success or Vincent's success. At the end of the day, I have to get up early every day and bust my behind just like everybody else," Braxton said. "So for me, I don't want to be depicted as a person that I'm completely not. If I signed up for a reality show that's one thing. But if I signed up for a scripted show, that's another thing. I'm not into that."

Braxton had been receiving criticism because some believe she's not as grateful to sister Toni Braxton for helping her get to where she is today. While she does admire her sis ("I look up to her!" she said), she does want people to know that she's being depicted a certain way on television and that she also deserves some of the credit for her success.

"For a while…I think that now, the one that has been created is the saying that I have a big head and that I think I'm the diva. Or I think that I don't owe anything to my sister, Toni Braxton. At the end of the day, yeah, she made the Braxton name very famous because she worked her behind off. I can't take that away from her. But then again, you can't take away from me the fact that, at the end of the day, I made a name for my own self too, and that's okay."
