Yesterday we told you that Tamar Braxton made it very clear that she’s not really interested in making amends with R&B rival K.Michelle, despite the fact that K extended an olive branch last week when she informed fans that she would be purchasing Tamar’s album.
“I don’t know who that is. I didn’t see that.I don’t know. I don’t follow anyone on Twitter and then the person has been blocked from my Twitter for two years so I don’t know how they figured I keep talking about them – I don’t want to talk about this,” Tamar said when asked about K’s peace offering.
While out promoting her new album Love & War and Season 2 of Tamar and Vince, the “Hot Sugar” singer was asked about her feud with K.Michelle again. She continued to shut down K’s efforts to make amends, but offered a bit more insight as to why she’s not interested in making nice with the outspoken Love & Hip Hop star.
“I really don’t talk about the people who bully me and stuff. If you do one good gesture that doesn’t make up for you calling me a muppet. It doesn’t make up for you telling everybody that a lip sync,” Tamar said during an interview with the Breakfast Club.
The new mom went on to say that due to the success of her new album, she and K are no longer on the same level.
“But I don’t even want to talk about her because on my third day, I sold over one-hundred thousand copies so we’re not even in the same conversations in life so why are we doing this?”
When asked if she returned the gesture and purchased K’s album, she humorously responded:
“Well you know, God is good. I bought mine.”
Tamar’s hubby Vince also confidently boasted that The Real will be returning for a second season.
“‘The Real’ is definitely coming back. That’s official. The ratings were so incredible and the girls had such great chemistry. It was something that we needed. It’s just good people on the show. It’s just fun.”
As for chatter that she’s become a bigger star than her Grammy Award-winning sister Toni, Tamar says this simply isn’t true.
“She’s super fine. I think it’s different. For her generation, she still is Toni Braxton. It’s just like a new generation. I’m not even on her level to even be speaking about that. She’s an icon. I have one record. Toni has catalogs, I have songs,” Tamar said.

While you were minding your business, getting ready to step out for the weekend, David Otunga (known as “Punk” to those who used to watch I Love New York) and rapper Wale were having something of a beef on Twitter. Random already right? Those are two names you probably wouldn’t think to put in the same sentence: Wale and David Otunga. Anwyho, it all started when Otunga, who must have just found out about the “Bad” remix featuring Rihanna a tad bit late, took to Twitter to say that homegirl overshadowed Mr. Folarin on his own song.
As you can see, Otunga included the rapper’s Twitter handle so that he would see the comment. Of course, Wale, who has never been one to mince words, was ready to respond to the out-0f-the-blue diss with some observations of his own about Otunga’s own career and how it compares to his fiancée’s, Jennifer Hudson. Excuse the incessant use of the N-word in the process:
From there Wale was basically done with Otunga, but the wrestler continued to talk to his own followers about the rapper, eventually bragging about his Harvard Law degree and Wale’s lack thereof.
Not really sure why Otunga decided to up and throw shade at Wale. Possibly because he knew that he could get a reaction out of the fiery little guy. And if we’ve learned anything from Raz-B, the thirst for publicity is real. But still, he’s got his own stuff to be worried about rather than trying to alert people that he thinks they’ve been overshadowed on their own tracks. When are you getting married to our Jennifer, sir!? Let’s worry about that first and foremost…
Celebrities love to throw shade on Twitter, but nothing is more entertaining than when another celeb throws it right back at them. Check out the best celebrity Twitter beefs of 2012.
Chrissy Teigen v. Team Breezy
Team Breezy is agro. All Chrissy said during the Billboard Music Awards this year was that Chris Brown’s performance wasn’t great. Is that really enough reason to threaten to kill a chick? They got so out of line that Breezy had to come in and calm things down. Some people are too crazy to handle 140 characters.
We all know that social networking can cause plenty of heated arguments. From disses to rumors and everything in between, it’s not uncommon for someone, even a celebrity, to quit a social networking site, such as Twitter when things get a little too heated — or they forget 18.75 million people are watching their every tweet. Here are 15 celebrities who temporarily or permanently quit Twitter.
After getting into a heated match with Jenny Johnson about Rihanna a couple of weeks ago, Chris Brown temporarily deleted his Twitter account. Unsurprisingly, he was reactivated and reusing his account the very next day. This isn’t the first or the last time Chris will quit Twitter.
Gone are the days when celebrity managers and publicists tweeted on behalf of their clients. Now, many celebrities have taken control of their Twitter accounts and pure drama has ensued. Some stars have been successful in keeping their Twitter beef to a minimum, while others seem to be way too sensitive to do the same. These fifteen celebrities are the type to interpret an innocent tweet as insulting; transfer their real-life drama to Twitter or from Twitter; and take tweet-beef way, way too seriously.
