If you were able to catch the special Valentine’s Day episode of VH1′s “Tiny Tonight”, you probably noticed the undeniable tension between co-hosts Tamar Braxton and Claudia Jordan, especially when the ladies began to discuss dating with standards and considering a man’s financial situation. Claudia expressed that the extravagance of a first date isn’t indicative of the success of a relationship.
“I had a very amazing date with someone at a very low-end restaurant, who was on the Forbes List and it ended up being a really nice relationship,” said Claudia.
“But he ain’t put a ring on it!” Tamar obnoxiously interjected.
As you can probably guess, this is where things got ugly. The ladies proceeded to go back and forth with Tamar taunting Claudia for not having a ring yet and Claudia expressing that love isn’t all about money, which is where Tamar quickly got defensive and began stating that she isn’t a gold digger. Tiny quickly diffused the situation, but of course, it didn’t end there.
Although previously taped, it seems that the episode airing last night stirred up some old feelings in the two co-hosts because they almost immediately began going at it via their Twitter pages the moment the episode aired.
Claudia does have a point. Tamar could’ve handled the disagreement a bit more professionally and didn’t have to personally attack her co-star for having different views.
Check out the video clip of the conversation that initiated the tension between Tamar and Claudia on the next page. What do you make of all of this? Is this a ploy to boost ratings?
