It’s been two years since Tamar Braxton was let go from daytime talk show “The Real.” Although the dust should have settled by now, the co-hosts of the series appeared on “The Breakfast Club” where Loni Love explained their side of the story.
The comedian starts by saying that none of them knew about the layoff until they got a call from production who didn’t give a specific reason why. They went on to say that each one of them tried to contact Tamar individually with no luck.
Loni then confirmed a rumor that has been floating around the internet since the shocking decision was made. Love explained that she was on a flight from Atlanta when she ran into Tamar’s sister, Towanda Braxton.
Love then revealed that Towanda gave her a heads up that they were shooting an emergency episode of “Braxton Family Values” where Vincent Herbert named all of the hosts as culprits on why the “Bluebirds of Happiness” singer was let go. She also said that Vince specifically singled out her as being ‘jealous.’
That’s when Loni got on the phone with her attorneys and Warner Brothers sent WE TV a warning that if they were going to violate the non-disclosure agreement — they would be sued.
Daily Mail was one of the firsts to reveal the behind-the-scenes drama in a report that read, in part: “They reenacted the day that Tamar found out she was fired and staged an entire scene where Tamar is laying in bed crying and declaring that she doesn’t know why she was fired, while her sisters attempt to console her. Vince declares that the co-hosts were always jealous of Tamar’s success and that Loni in particular always had it out for Tamar. Vince helps pass the buck in the episode and fuels the conspiracy theory that the co-hosts aided in her ouster.”
The episode ultimately ended up being edited to avoid the lawsuit, but Tamar carried on with the shade to her ex co-workers via social media. You can watch the full video of “The Real” hosts’ side of the story above.
