Three years after being fired from The Real, Tamar Braxton is talking about the show again.
It all happened during an appearance on the Wendy Williams Show when Wendy asked her if she’d ever go back to the show.
“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.”
Loni Love responded to Braxton’s comments on The Real.
“The show has reached out to her. Tamar, nobody’s trying to use you as a marketing tool, sweetie,” she continued. “You apologized to us over the summer and we just thought, to close the circle, like what Wendy did yesterday with NeNe, to mend fences, that was the intention. That is it. You are still welcome, my dear. 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.”
