It was a moment for fans to see the pain of Tamar Braxton when she appeared on Taraji P. Henson’s podcast. Taraji P. Henson’s Peace of Mind Facebook Watch series saw Braxton reveal that she attempted to take her life because she thought her son would be better without her.

“Logan was the reason why I made that decision. I just felt like he deserved better. I felt like I was embarrassing him, being a fool on TV,” Tamar said emotionally. She went on to add, referencing her status as a television personality, “I thought in that moment…because I knew that’s not what my whole life really was. That’s not who I was. I didn’t want him to be embarrassed in front of his friends. Here is this loudmouth ghetto mama.”

Tamar Braxton gave an open letter to the host of Peace of Mind.

“Dear Taraji, Thank you. Thank you for not only having me on your show but creating a safe place to tell parts of my story so others can see the signs that I didn’t see,” she began. “I was so jacked up back then, that I had no idea that It was ok to feel. You have to feel So you can heal. Many may see this interview and think “ here comes Tamar again.” But, that’s not what you saw. You said “I can’t wait to see her so I can hug her.”
