The ladies of The Real recently appeared on the The Breakfast Club to give us the “real real” on everything from the gritty details of Jeannie Mai’s divorce to what type of porn Adrienne indulges in with her god-fearing husband. After we got a yet another speech from Tamera Mowry denying her husband, former Fox News correspondent Adam Housely, was racist for the nine millionth time, comedian Loni Love got down to the host we really wanted to know about, even though she’s been gone from the show for some time.
Loni Love used the opportunity to share her experience with discovering Tamar Braxton had been fired from the show in 2016, as well as some insight on the huge part her estranged husband, Vincent Herbert played in the dramatic ordeal. Loni Love attempted to defend she and her co-hosts’ character saying they were always supportive of Tamar even at times when her sisters were nowhere to be found. While dropping the details, Love even included a story about bumping into Tamar’s sister Towanda Braxton shortly after the incident:
“I get on a plane to go to Atlanta [and] guess who’s in front of me, in first class: Towanda. She told me they did an emergency episode of Braxton Family Values, and, ‘You need to see the episode.'”
“I had a person that worked at WEtv. The person that worked at WEtv contacted me [and said], ‘You are being named, the girls are being named,’ and I called my attorney and I said, ‘You gotta call WEtv and let them know if they’re naming us, we’re gonna have to have legal action. That’s defamation of character.”
Towanda, however, recently took to social media after watching the interview to tell Loni Love to “keep it REAL” and get the story straight if she’s going to tell it:
Towanda also questioned with all the current events occurring in the world as well as some of the issues in their own life which all of the hosts were happy to address during the interview, why are they still choosing to focus on Tamar? Loni hasn’t responded to the clapback and Tamar seems to be continuing to play no part as she enjoys cuffing season with her new Nigerian bae. Admittedly, The Real lost something for me after Braxton’s departure and if I heard Tamera Mowry remind us that her husband is the second coming of Christ one more time I was going to throw my TV out of the window. Still, the show and its hosts remain unbothered by any of the drama. The show won a daytime Emmy this past spring and has been renewed throughout 2020. Despite how Towanda or Tamar may be feeling, it is clearly their time.
