After watching the new Braxton Family Values season 7 trailer, Tamar Braxton had a bone to pick with WE tv.

In the teaser clip, Braxton's hospitalization in July is addressed, as her mother Evelyn, tells the cameras, "Toni called, she told me that Tamar was rushed to the hospital because she tried to commit suicide."

"After waking up to that disgusting trailer...FUCK @wetv and whomever else participating for using my pain for their pleasure and ratings," Tamar wrote on Instagram on Wednesday (Oct. 21). "don’t miss my exclusive TELL ALL on my girl @tamronhallshow next week [fire emoji]..at some point this abuse HAS to STOP and P.s. IM NOT FILMING FOR THIS SEASON! THEY ARE DOING THIS WHILE IM NOT ON THE SHOW#SCUMBAGSHIT."

The star previously posted an emotional note on July 30 confirming her suicide attempt and opening up about the toxic culture of the reality TV business after she reportedly attempted to take her life on July 16. "Mental illness is real. We have to normalize acknowledging it and stop associating it with shame and humiliation. The pain that I have experienced over the past 11 years has slowly ate away at my spirit and my mental."

"I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid," she added, noting that she sent a letter more than two months ago asking to be let out of what she characterized as an "excessive and unfair" situation, without detailing the specifics.
