The star made her debut on the morning programme alongside fellow celebrities Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Bailon, comedienne Loni Love, and TV personality Jeannie Mai when the show premiered in 2013, but in late May (16), bosses announced Tamar would not be returning after two seasons.

However, the younger sister of Toni Braxton will not be away from the small screen for long after inking a deal for a new project with Steve.

The pair shared the news during an interview on Steve's radio show on Thursday (02Jun16), and hours later, Tamar took to Instagram.com to write, "thanks so much to my dear friend @iamsteveharveytv... my baby Vince (husband and manager) for such an AMAZING opportunity. I love u (sic) guys and can't WAIT for what is to come".

She added, "seriously.. When one door closes another one opens".

No further details about the new series have been released, but during her chat with Steve, who fronts his own talk show on America's NBC network, Tamar admitted her firing from The Real came "out of the blue".

She also alleges she has yet to be given a real reason for her departure, despite producers previously issuing a joint statement suggesting Tamar wanted to focus on her music career.

The press release, issued to E! News on 22 May (16), read: "The Real and Tamar Braxton have mutually decided that Tamar will not be continuing with the show for its upcoming third season.

"She will be leaving in order to concentrate on her solo career. Everyone associated with The Real appreciates Tamar's efforts and the contributions she has made to the show's success, and we wish her all the best for the future."

The Real executives have yet to respond to Tamar's claims.
