The Real's Tamar Braxton on The View: "Like Listening to Your Great Aunt or Great Grandmother"




Let the shade begin! Tamar Braxton recently spoke with Coco Fab TV at the BET Awards and dished her upcoming talk show, The Real, premiering July 15 in select markets. Here's an excerpt of the reality starlet and R&B singer comparing and contrasting her new syndicated show to ABC daytime's gabfest, The View:

I get to be a real grown up [laughs]. The Real is like The View but its from a younger perspective and opinions that we care about. You know what I mean? It’s so great and it’s so positive. We just started shooting it last week and it’s the most amazing experience I’ve ever been a part of. [The View] is almost like listening to your great aunt or great grandmother, without being disrespectful, but The Real is like your girlfriends, your sister, your cousin. Somebody’s opinion that you respect, but you can agree to disagree. Like Tamera and I have totally different opinions, but we real cool [laughs]. It’s like come check in with your girlfriends on The Real.

Great grandmother and great aunt? Dang Tamar, The View crew ain't that old! Watch the entire interview after the jump! READ MORE
