Tamar Braxton sat down with Wendy Williams to talk about her divorce, new boo, and of course the drama with her sisters. Well, they started talking about why Tamar stormed out of the group session with Iyanla on Fix My Life. (Side bar: I need Wendy to stop saying EYE-yanla, but ok.) Tamar revealed that she was molested by members of both sides of her family. The news must’ve really shocked Wendy because she kept it right on moving. I think it was edited.

However, in an IG post, Tamar explained her decision to reveal the news. She says she’s been abused multiple times by multiple family members and there were only two people that knew her secret. One of them being the man that she’s with now who she says doesn’t make her feel ashamed. She says that she wants to create a safe space to allow ppl to share their stories as well.

Today Wendy asked me what happened at my sisters meeting and why did I walk out. Since someone there decided that they would ask me about something so private, so embarrassing, so secretive in front of EVERYONE that was there, I felt like my life was flashing before my eyes and IMMEDIATELY started to cry. Not because someone decided to allow someone else to tell MY SECRET, not because I was asked if it were True in front of a hundred strangers, but because once again my right to choose was taken from me all over again. I decided to Tell Wendy and the world MY secret, MYSELF that I have been a victim of abuse not once, twice, ten, but multiple times by multiple “family members” I’ve never told ANYONE other than Two people in my life and they both have held this close to them. One Being the man that I am with now and EVERY, SINGLE DAY he says I’m so beautiful and my scars makes me even more attractive. I felt that because this has happened to me recently, that something HAD to be done about people who DID know and tried to make People embarrassed and ashamed about something that has happened to them!!! I never EVER again want anyone to feel so little and so small or even ashamed about something they had no control over. I wanted to create a space where you can tell your OWN story with out anyone commenting or making you feel ashamed EVER again!! Go to and tell your story and empower yourself starting today! I wanted you to know that no matter how many scars you have… you are the PRETTIEST 💕 I love you all so much noneedTBshame.com
