Things are getting petty!


Tamar Braxton visited The Wendy Williams Show (September 18) and had some words for her old gig- The Real.


As we know, Tamar is a former host of The Real and was let go back in 2016. During her visit to Wendy Williams’ talk show, the powerhouse singer did mention she is not interested in returning back to the show as a “marketing tool” but she did wish the host well. 


Wendy asked Tamar, “Would you ever go back to The Real?” She continued, “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.” 


Tamar also spoke on the state of her life, “What if I was in a situation where I’m doing [Braxton Family Values&#93 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 got a go. I’ve got to go up and up and up.”


Word must’ve quickly gotten back to the ladies of The Real and Loni Love took the opportunity to address Tamar and Ms. Wendy Williams. She clapped back by saying, “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 added, “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.”


It looks like its best if this is all left in the past.
