Tamar Braxton has been the talk of the town this week, but unfortunately it’s for all the wrong reasons because the multitalented celebrity recently lost her title as daytime talk show host when it was revealed in the most unceremonious manner that she had  been fired from “The Real.” Not surprisingly, controversy erupted as producers scrambled to cover up the scandal and some of Braxton’s co-hosts revealed the messiness of her firing. But while fans and non-fans alike talk about Braxton’s exit, new rumors are claiming that producers may already have a replacement for Braxton in mind.

As previously reported, Braxton was fired from the show this past weekend and it’s alleged that she may have found out not much sooner than the rest of us when rumors initially began spreading that producers were going to drop her. Unfortunately, the rumors were quickly confirmed and Braxton made a cryptic Instagram post claiming that she had been betrayed by someone close to her.

Since then, the show and its co-hosts have been swamped with drama as fans have been questioning why Braxton was fired and if any of her cast mates were the ones to betray her. Meanwhile, cast mates such as Loni Love have been denying the accusations and claiming that the entire cast was unaware until the last minute that producers planned to fire Braxton or that any of them would want her gone.

Well, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that things behind the scenes at “The Real” are an unstable mess, but according to media reports, sources claim to know who Braxton is talking about when she claimed someone betrayed her.

“Rachel Miskowiec, she is the executive producer of ‘The Real’ and she is the person who is behind Tamar getting fired. She is who Tamar was talking about,” the sources allege, adding that many people on staff at “The Real” feel like they could be fired at any time.

Sources also say that Miskowiec already has plans to replace Braxton and the woman she’s allegedly eyeing to fill her shoes is up-and-coming actress Keke Palmer. Sources say that Miskowiec has a good relationship with Palmer and is considering bringing her onboard to take over for Braxton next season.

“The person who’s going to replace Tamar is KeKe Palmer,” the source said. “Rachel produced the pilot for Telepictures with KeKe Palmer last summer. She likes KeKe and KeKe of course wants to do another talk show. She’s on the fast track to being in that role.”

For now, the remaining co-hosts are all set to come back for season 3 of the show, but with so much up in the air, we’ll wait to see who is actually sitting in the hosts’ chairs come next TV season.

Meanwhile, Braxton is supposed to address her firing in an upcoming episode of “Braxton Family Values.”

So what do you think of Braxton’s firing? Do you think Palmer would be a good replacement for Braxton? Let us know in the comments.

    Tamar you know your attitude is a bit over the top. I stop watching BFV bkuz I couldn’t stand watching you being privileged rude and down right nasty. The same traits that if I’m hearing correctly you carried to ‘the real’. Real talk I stopped watching BFV bkuz I just don’t like Tamar.

    Tamar was one of the only reasons I watched The Real. She is over the top and didn’t care what people thought and that is why she is so endearing. She is one of the few people in Hollywood who tells it like it is. All this garbage about her being Ghetto is just stupid and people are jealous of her success. When my husband and I were looking at practices for him after his residency and there was nothing in Chicago, we picked Florida because we knew my parents were planning to retire here.I am a youngest daughter too, my mother and father moved from Chicago to Florida. They got to see their grandchildren every day for years, my dad worked for my husband for years and years, my mom helped with my kids when I was sick. There is something about youngest daughters and their parents. They are the baby and I have no problem saying that even though I have been happily married for 31 years, have three gorgeous successful daughters, I am still their baby. My Mom died a few years ago and it is awful. So Glad my Dad is still here. I totally get Tamar and I am a lot older than her 56 two weeks ago. Tamar is fine to her sisters. I always felt here sisters judged her way to harshly. Tamar helped make the Real the show it is. And they are going to have a lot of people who stop watching the show. If all the Real co-hosts really protested her firing, they would have made their feelings known to management. If they all banded together and said we won’t go on without Tamar, Tamar would have been immediately rehired her. Just like all the Friends stars negotiated their contract as one. They all got paid the exact same thing. There is power in Hollywood if you all stick together, which Tamar’s co-stars clearly did not. But Tamar is on to bigger and better things.

      I really did not give a shit about Tamar she is over the top and that why I don’t watch the real or the Braxton’s because she think she made Toni Braxton when in fact it the other way around it would not be no Braxton’s if it was not for Mrs toni

    Keke palmer, I think is a bit too young to fit amongst the cast of the show
