Tamar Braxton and her former friend and colleague, Loni Love, have been going back and forth for several years now about the very public firing from The Real.
The singer and reality star quickly blamed Loni for her brutal exit from the talk show, but Loni had denied the claims and blamed Tamar’s ex-husband, Vincent Herbert, for the exit.
Most recently, Loni’s former friend and writer — Cookie Hull — said she played a part in the firing.
Talking to Madame Noire, Loni was asked by the reporter: “I don’t know if you want to talk about this or not—but Cookie Hull recently did an interview with Comedy Hype and she made some claims that it was you who wrote an e-mail to get Tamar fired and you wanted to be the only ‘ghetto’ Black girl on the show. You addressed it a little bit on The Real but didn’t say her name. So I wanted to know what you thought about that.”
Loni responded by: “I do have thoughts about that that I addressed in my book. But I will say this, anybody that knows me, knows that I will not describe myself as a ghetto girl. I wouldn’t describe Tamar Braxton as a ghetto girl. I might say that we believe in the power of being ourselves. But ghetto girl?! I would never do that. And also, there’s a lesson in this. When you try to help people, you have to watch who you help. I’ve never been against any Black woman. My fans know that. That’s the reason why I wrote this book. When you read the book, you will see. I’ve been trying to get the truth out for years. But here, we deal with this reality show type [mentality]. I do address that in my book.”
In the following tweet, Tamar responded by throwing shades:
One person had the following to say: “Really, though, why does Loni keep calling Tamar’s name? She knows Tamar is not feeling her, and it’s a little unnecessary IMO.”
Another commenter claimed: “It’s not subliminal if you know who shes talking about. It’s obvious who’s on who y’all payroll, though.”
This backer wrote: “I can’t believe that in 2020 this is still a topic of discussion. I wish they would just move on from this.”
This “feud” might go on for a while.
