The last time we spoke of Toya Wright and Tamar Braxton, it was after Braxton’s interview on The Breakfast Club. During the sit down, she explained to the crew that she was particularly offended by Toya Wright’s comments because she believed Wright was her friend.

On this very show, I was watching like everybody else and I was devastated. I had no idea that that wasn’t my friend. I had no idea of the things that were coming out of her mouth, that she really felt that way. On top of everything that was really negative, that happened last year–I’m not gon’ cry– I think that was one of the things that hurt me the most. Because when her brothers died, it really affected me. Tiny and I were together and we both called her. And I just found it really hard to hear her say ‘That was a nice gesture.’ It’s really important, for me, for all of my friends to be successful. You can be offended if you want to but it’s still my feelings. Unfollowing somebody should not define your relationship. It’s not about reconciling. I feel like there’s another conversation that needs to be had. She put me in a book and publicized it. It kind of makes things final. I’m trying to figure out how fake I am. How can you put on a persona for so long? I am the same person every time someone meets me.”

Well, now that Tamar’s let her feelings be known, people wanted to know Toya’s thoughts on their falling out.

“I would like to say that I wish Tamar Braxton the best. I have nothing negative to say about her. I think she’s an amazing singer, very talented. I wish her much success. And as far as Black women in the entertainment industry handling conflict I just feel like we use social media platforms to kind of air out a lot of cattiness and pettiness. And I, myself—I’m not saying that it’s other people because I’m a victim of it as well. We have to do better. We have to start setting more positive examples for the youth who follow us and look up to us. Because the girl fights and the Twitter beefs and the Instagram shade throwing It just needs to stop.”
