Tamar Braxton is one of the reigning queens of reality television. Ever since she burst onto the scene with her fiery personality on Braxton Family Values, fans can’t stop watching her.

But as her new beauty series is set to hit the airwaves, her second WeTV spinoff has stalled.
Tamar Braxton announces new VH1 show
Braxton announced her new show and spoke exclusively to The Jasmine Brand during the early stages of development. She told the outlet at the time:
I have a VH1 show coming up that got picked up for 20 episodes. I’m really excited about it. It’s kinda like a musical sort of. But it’s really, really good and entertaining. I’ve always been into acting. I started off with Tyler Perry, a lot of people don’t know that. I did Madea Goes to Jail. We had a great time. Ever since then I’ve had the acting bug. Then the reality show came and the music bug definitely never goes away.The Jasmine Brand
Turns out, the premise of the show went in a different direction from music and they landed on a reality beauty series. The show was greenlit and moved to production in Jan. 2020.
Details about Tamar Braxton’s VH1 show ‘To Catch A Beautician’ premiere date and description released
To Catch A Beautician will be co-hosted by celebrity stylist, Johnny Wright. Wright’s clients include Former First Lady Michelle Obama and Queen Latifah. He’s given hair care tips on The Tamron Hall Show and MSNBC.
According to Bossip, the series will run in the #1 non-sports Monday night line-up on VH1 following T.I.’s popular reality series. Braxton previously appeared on a late-night talk show on the network alongside her BFF Tiny Harris.
The series will follow Braxton and Wright as they rescue clients with botched hair from their beauticians. The clients will confront the stylists with the help of Braxton and Wright. With Wright’s direction, the stylists will undergo a hair bootcamp and have the chance to redeem themselves by re-doing their client’s hair.
Tamar Braxton’s WeTV spinoff ‘Get Ya Life’ to debut but premiere stalls
Braxton announced her second WeTV spinoff last year. An Instagram fan page dedicated to the singer and reality star posted several videos and images of her filming the spinoff, including a trip to Nigeria to meet her boyfriend’s family and her recording what appeared to be music videos.
Her first Braxton Family Values spinoff, Tamar & Vince, chronicled her life with her then-husband Vincent Herbert and captured her recording three albums, touring, filming The Real, the birth of her son and the eventual demise of their relationship.
In an Instagram live video, she gave a brief synopsis of what the new show would document.
So, it’s a show that originally was supposed to be about my life and me putting together a possible record. And how my life is now without Vince in the picture, me dating David, me being a single mom and also running my businesses all myself, without an agent, without a manager but also elevating. And that’s the reason I don’t have an agent or a manager because sometimes you outgrow situations. Sometimes the people around you keep you stifled and down. So, this show is about me breaking out and being everything that I am.
Teasers for the series were released and given a premiere date for April that came and went. It’s unclear if the coronavirus shutdown has contributed to the delay.
Braxton has been open about her disappointment with WeTV production and admitted she was nervous about the outcome of the series due to what she considered negative diting in the past. Get Ya Life has also been removed from WeTV’s show page, leaving fans wondering if it’s still a go.
To Catch A Beautician will air on VH1 on Monday, May 25 at 9 PM EST.
