  1. It’s wonderful when you’re able to recognize when you have to grow and are untimely responsible for each moment you are in.

  2. Good! Some people have really bad attitude and need to know what’s what. I don’t feel sorry for her cause I’ve been on the receiving end of people with bad attitudes and think they are better than others. But it’s good that she can learn from it and gain some humility.

  3. She was unconscious and Vulgar ! A poor example to our young ladies coming up ……….k

  4. I never like to hear of people losing their jobs; I always thought Tamar was abrasive, even on their family’s Braxton Family Values Reality show. She seemed to be spoiled & had to have things her way or else. On the Real, she seemed too ghetto for this old lady…74&1/2. I would mute her sometimes, b/c she was too loud for my ears. She has had so much going- on, as far as jobs, I’m sure she’ll be fine. She still has her singing career & a son & husband to keep busy with. Some entertainers over do. Give other people a chance to work.

    I relate to this story more than I’d like to admit. I’ve been fired (a few times) but each of my experiences have taught me more about my inner strength and the ability to bounce back.
    The perception of attitude/strong personality is a tricky thing when it comes to being a Black woman, but I’ve learned to recognize my insecurities and take accountability for my behavior.

    It’s dope that you had the courage to do some soul searching and make some adjustments. One of the hardest things to do is confront yourself and see who you really are without bias. I see a lot of myself in this article and have also made some changes. But those changes came without me even realizing it when I removed the negative people in my life and made room for the positive. It’s a slow, burning process but it’s so worth it in the end.

    What do you do after you’ve been fired? Do you mention it in interviews? If so, how? Do you put the job in your resume, if it’s less than six months? I hated my last job, and I am glad that I am not there as it affected my health, but I don’t know what to do now?

      In upcoming positions I have never mentioned anything negative into perspective while trying to get a job. Use that negativity as a push to NOT do what you have previously done. I would not mention it because people have a way of perceiving things and you wouldn’t want a judgment on something that you have learned, grew and moved forward from.

    I am very happy that Tamar has come to this realization and said it out loud and for the people that still down her and hate on her boo to you because at least she has the courage to admit what she knows and found out about herself that played a major part in her being released from her job hip hip hooray Tamar good luck in all you do I know you’ll do well pardon the lack of punctuation figure it out.👏😉👍👊

    When I was on my job and thought that I was doing everything right but I was never getting any overtime never any Saturdays and I just couldn’t figure it out I know I have a bad attitude trying to curb that but I didn’t know that it came off like that working really really hard on that I’ve seen some improvement in myself because everybody used to be a b**** when it was really me😟 mostly because of the way Tamar said she used to be shy and quiet I used to be shy and quiet and everybody pushed my buttons and I got that really hard exterior and the so what attitude or the IDGAF attitude what do you do?😒 try harder😉😳

    Great article. I can relate to this same ordeal. Although I was not fired due to my attitude, once I began working in a new area I have a co-worker who’s attitude is TERRIBLE!!! She has an issue with any and everything from a smell to noise to even her work and that made me look at myself because I know how I perceived her…it made me reevaluate my attitude and tone with others and wondered if they see me like I see her. And in all honesty that was neither classy nor cute so I decided to reevaluate. I am not going to lie as if sometimes it does not come out every once in a while. But at 22, I am grateful that I have acknowledged the issue and reevaluated myself before it becomes too late.
