Tamar Braxton doesn’t have time for “Real Housewives'” antics.

The singer, 47, said she turned down an opportunity to join “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” because there’s “just no way I’m going to sit and get a wig put on and get my face beat to argue with a bunch of bitches about nothing.”

“I can’t do it. What does that do for me in my life? What’s the argument?” she said during a live recording of Carlos King’s “Reality with the King” podcast. The episode was later added to his YouTube page on Friday.

“Let me tell you something, all money ain’t good money. It’s just not,” she continued.

The “Braxton Family Values” star added, “What’s for me won’t miss me. It’s not worth my mental to sit up here and get into an argument with another Black beautiful women about nothing so ‘other people’ can think this is what we’re about. At some point you have to have responsibility in what you put on the TV screen.”

Instead, she’s more focused on making “feel good, funny, relatable, epic” television.

Despite her unwillingness to join the series, Braxton said she’s still a fan of the series.

The Bravo franchise underwent some changes recently resulting in the addition of several new cast members.

In February, Bravo announced Porsha Williams would be returning to the show for Season 16. The network also revealed Brittany Eady, Kelli Ferrell, Angela Oakley, and longtime friend of the housewives, Shamea Morton Mwangi, will also become full time housewives this season.

Cynthia Bailey will also appear as a friend of the housewives this season.

The show recently said goodbye to OG housewives Kandi Burruss, Sheree Whitfield, who returned to the show for Season 15, as well as Sanya Richards Ross and Marlo Hampton following the Season 15 reunion.

According to the podcast host and Braxton, the answer to saving “RHOA” doesn’t lie in adding fresh faces.

King claimed the show needs to focus on bringing back more OG Housewives like Nene Leakes, who exited the show in September 2020.

King also speculated on the reason why Zolciak hasn’t returned to the show as a full-time housewife, saying she “has no connection with the girls like she used to.”

“We all know the best season of Atlanta ‘Housewives’ is Season 6 and Season 9,” he told the room.
