Tamar Braxton went on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ and spoke about the possibility of her returning to ‘The Real.’
If you recall, lovebscott.com exclusively broke the news that Tamar had been unceremoniously fired from the show.
Not only did we tell you that she was fired, but sources also confirmed all the reasons WHY she was fired.
Anyway, Tamar was on ‘Wendy’ today and said that she wouldn’t want to return to be used as a ‘marketing tool.’
“Would you ever go back to The Real?” Wendy asked Tamar. “Cute show, but they need you. You are done dirty.”
“Here’s the thing. I don’t want to be anybody’s marketing tool this season, no shade,” Tamar said. “I just wish everybody well and I feel like sometimes God has to move you out of situations before you become more toxic to yourself.”
She added, “What if I was in a situation where I’m doing [Braxton Family Values] and very stressed and then I’m doing this other show where people are being catty behind my back. What kind of person would I be right now sitting on this couch? I wouldn’t be focused, I wouldn’t be ready for my transformation, I wouldn’t be ready for my elevation and that’s where I’ve gotta go. I’ve got to go up and up and up.”
Now that the ladies of ‘The Real’ are live, they took today’s show to clap back at Tamar’s comments.
Loni kicked things off:
“First of all, thank you for calling us a ‘cute’ show. We are also an Emmy-winning show. Don’t forget that.”
Loni continued, “You are still welcome right here too and every time. It is not a big deal. Seriously, we as black women have to stick together. We as women have to stick together. It’s no pettiness. We need to have you come here so we can close the circle.” She added, “We love you, Tamar. You are a powerhouse. We know you. You know us. That’s all.”
Tamera Mowry followed up:
“I can speak for all of us here, and especially for myself. I have been in the business for over 20 years. And my reputation is not one of cattiness. And I agree with you, Loni, it’s time. It’s time for me to say this. It’s time for women of color to stop putting each other down. We already have other people doing that. More importantly, it, start uplifting each other. Loving each other.”
“I’m tired of it. I’m tired of it. It’s unfair. It’s unfair. I worked hard on my character each and every freaking day. And everybody who was close to me knows that truth. What I don’t like is that out there. The falseness.”
Loni then jumped back in:
“What people don’t realize is that when we first started doing The Real all of us had separate careers. I’ve been trying to do comedy for 15 years. Can you imagine? 15 years. I finally get a show. Then I was ostracized as a bully, the person who got another sister fired. Can you imagine the hurt, after 15 years? Why would I do that?”
And there’s a lot more! Get into the ladies’ full reaction to Tamar & Wendy below.
