R&B singer Tamar Braxton has announced the launch of her upcoming podcast, Under Construction, less than a fortnight of the season finale of her reality television show, Get Ya Life.
“‘Under Construction is about us all,” said Braxton in a clip shared to her social media. “It’s not about where we’ve been but it’s about where we’re going — Building together.”
In the podcast description, Braxton will give listeners “a glimpse into her life, by sharing her experiences as she navigates relationships, motherhood and her career.”
Braxton, who also stars on the WeTV series “Braxton Family Values,” spoke about the pressure of being on TV and the ways it has affected her relationships with family members.
“It was about feeling like I could never be myself and being misunderstood and having the stigma of the angry Black woman all the time. And that’s not who I am. That’s not what I wanted to portray. … It wasn’t just about being an angry Black woman, it was about real issues coming up on the show,” she told daytime talk show host, Tamron Hall.
She says she created the show “to be an example of the Black community with five Black amazing sisters, with all different walks of life, who can inspire and help.”
Ultimately, the show has led to conflict between family members, with sister Traci Braxton refusing to speak to her.
“I love my family. And I don’t want to fight with my family. And I want to be an example of a family who fights and argues and always have turmoil,” she said. “We wasn’t teaching anything but being devilish and I didn’t want to do that.”
