As we informed you yesterday, Tamar Braxton and the ladies of The Real found themselves at odds on Wednesday. During Tamar’s visit to The Wendy Williams Show, she was asked if she would ever return to her former talk show three years after being fired. While attempting to point out the positives that came with losing her co-hosting post, Tamar also threw some shade at the cattiness she claimed was going on behind her back during her time on The Real:

“Here’s the thing. I don’t want to be anybody’s marketing tool this season. No shade, but I just wish everybody well,” she said. “I just feel like sometimes God has to move you out of situations before you become more toxic to yourself. What if I was in a situation where I was doing the Braxtons and it’s very stressful 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 why I got to go, I got to be on the up and up and up.”

The women caught wind of Tamar’s comments, and Loni led The Real hosts in setting some things straight during their “Girl Chat” segment. Loni maintained that she invited Tamar on the show for genuine reasons and had nothing to do with why she was fired.

“The show has reached out to her. Tamar, nobody’s trying to use you as a marketing tool, sweetie,” she said.

“We as Black women have to stick together,” she added. “We as women have to stick together. Okay? It’s no cattiness, it’s just we need to have you come here so we can close the circle. You apologized, we opened it up to you, and it’s still there and it will always be there.”

Tamar didn’t appreciate being the topic of conversation on her former show, so she hit back at the women on Instagram, specifically at Loni. She shared some text messages she received from someone claiming that Loni wrote letters to the network to get Tamar kicked off of the show with the caption, “When the guilt settles….Lonnie cut the BS!!!”

Loni responded to her message by, again, inviting her to come on The Real to hash things out.

“Who writes letters? Who sent this? … let’s talk it out,” she wrote. “Stop going on every other show. You know you want to ..and bring ya man.”

Tamar took things a step further though after the fact, sharing an old video from the original The Queen’s Court with TS Madison and rapper Khia. In the clip, the women talk about Loni’s weight, her not being real, and call her out her name while defending Tamar from what they deemed to be petty behavior on her part. Despite their differences, posting the clip to her page, with the caption, “sorry I only go on shows with ratings, plus you do enough talking about me,” was pretty low:

Loni didn’t take the video to heart though.

“I know you are scared Tamar…but if you are going to accuse me of something do it to my face…but you can’t handle the truth,” she wrote as a comment on the clip. “I thought your apology was sincere…that was why I wanted you to come on the show.. I can’t wait for your next funny meme.. let’s go Sis!!!”

Tamar would later go on to delete the video and her original post with the text messages about Loni from her page. As of today, she’s back to talking about doing a positive transformation, and wishing big sis Towanda a happy birthday.

For the record, as for this apology that Tamar gave that Loni keeps bringing up, it occurred in June on Instagram when she claimed she was turning over a new forgiving leaf with the help of her boyfriend.

“When all u know and felt is hurt. You hurt,” she wrote. “Self inflicted and to others are included. From my sisters, the ladies of the real, Iyanla, old and new Friends and whomever else I’ve EVER hurt, from being hurt. Please forgive me.”
