Tabitha Brown or ‘Auntie Tab’ posted a video message on her social media announcing that her new show “ItsCompliplated” set to premiere on the Food Network primetime has been moved from its original slot.
The show moved from Thursdays at 9 p.m. to Tuesdays at 1 p.m.
Tabitha Brown is vegan, an author, a fashion designer, a mom and wife, and 100% herself!
However, it seems that there are people who want her to bend or change in order to work with them.
According to The Daily News Tab said “I know I’ve said this so many times before but for whatever reason, people just don’t seem to believe me, okay?” she started off her video message. “There is not a company, there is not a network, there is not a person, place or thing that is going to change who I am.”
Without naming names, Brown lambasted those who may have been critical of the genteel personality, Southern comfort sophistication, and Afrocentric fashion sensibility that many fans love her for.
“If you don’t like my personality, if you don’t like everything that makes Tab Tab, don’t work with me,” she said. “Because I’m not going to change. I’m not going to shift a little bit for your audience. I’m not going to talk a little bit different for your comfort.”
The 43-year-old, married mother of two continued: “This is the person I am. This is who God created me to be and if it ain’t enough for you, then you’re not for me and if I bring it to your attention that, ’Wait, I don’t like how this feels, I feel like you’re trying to change me or erase my personality or my culture’ and you get upset by that instead of hearing me from my heart, I also don’t want to be in business with you.
“Does that makes sense? It ain’t personal for you but it’s personal for me and it’s business. Okay?”
Brown closed out her video with the surprising news that “It’s CompliPlated” has been moved from Thursdays at 9 p.m. to Tuesdays at 1 p.m. on the Food Network, and encouraged fans to stream it on Discovery Plus.
“I’m still not going to change and I’m gonna always speak my mind and my truth,” she said.
When the series was announced on June 29, Food Network chief Jane Latman championed the Eden, N.C., native as the “perfect host” because of her “energy, sense of humor and real-life journey to becoming vegan.”

One more time for the people in the back❤️
I’ve had to break down a lot of walls and barriers to get to my freedom! To walk proudly and confident in my truth is still an everyday pursuit!! I’m not going to change!! I’m also not going to be quiet about when things feel wrong!
I always come from my heart and I’m very direct and honest. In the entertainment world I know that’s frowned upon especially coming from a woman. Sometimes my niceness makes people think that I’m weak, but I’m not! I will keep speaking up for myself !
God is my network and he said I’ve been created for such a time as this and I’ve said yes to the assignment! OOHHH GOD I THANK YOU ” for trusting me with this journey! Family thank y’all for loving me and supporting me just for being me!! I love y’all! ❤️
Thank you to all the partners that i work with that truly see me for me, I appreciate you! To those that don’t see me for me but see me only for their benefit, I SEE YOU!
Tabitha Brown has a restaurant, a clothing line with Target, a home decor line with Target, food seasoning, a haircare product, a YouTube channel for kids, on a tv show, a cookbook. Damn auntie Tab! All from being her authentic self.

Honey please don’t confuse freedom with arrogance. I use to be a code switcher and it did nothing for anyone. We should be accepted in any room because we are enough! I will never pave a road for others that requires them to give up their freedom! No ma’am❤️.
