Welp it was bound to happen the ole difficult and angry is lame. ..So here is my statement. “It’s ironic that a few days after I said on my show that I’ve seen ‘men storm out of rooms, puffing and huffing, and no one says anything’ while ‘women [who] speak up [are viewed] as difficult’ that someone would leak a false story about me being difficult. As I said live on my show while defending Gabrielle Union, women are perceived as ‘difficult’ when they speak up. I have never once complained about Kelly’s renewal - I am so happy for my fellow Texan. I’m excited about my show and I can’t wait for season 2!!”
As expected, fans took to the comment section to show their support for the 49-year-old TV personality as they stated that they "knew the deal." Other followers advised that Tamron not "sweat it" while someone asked the co-host of "Today's Take" to remain "amazing."Meanwhile, Essence recalled that The "Tamron Hall Show" host came to Gabrielle Union's defense after she was allegedly fired from "America's Got Talent "after her first and only season.
According to the unnamed source, Tamron allegedly shouted that the team would have gotten an early renewal if her staff "were all doing a better job."
The source added that:
"She's been on edge since the show launched, but each week she's become more and more difficult to work with."
Daily Mail pointed out that Tamron premiered "The Tamron Hall Show" back in September, on the same day as Clarkson's show with a solid 1.4 rating. However, Tamron's score dropped to 1.0 and maintained that pace for the past eight weeks.
Meanwhile, Kelly's NBC show landed at a 1.5 rating average, which led the network to announce its renewal of the "American Idol" winner's show for a second season.
Daily Mail's article also mentioned that in spite of Tamron's anger, her show has been doing considerably well.
According to the site, "The Tamron Hall Show" is the highest debut of any other talk show, other than Kelly's, in the past five years.
