Tamar Braxton and her former co-hosts of The Real are still feuding, three years after Braxton made her departure from the show.

Braxton appeared on The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday and the “Love and War” singer’s departure from the show was brought up.

“Would you ever go back to The Real?” Wendy Williams asked Braxton. “I always ask you this. Cute show, but they need you. You were done dirty.”

“I do not want to be anybody’s marketing tool this season, no shade. I just wish everybody well and I just feel like sometimes God has to move you out of situations before you become more toxic to yourself,” Braxton replied.

“What if I was in a situation where I’m doing the Braxton’s and its 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 where I’ve got to go. I’ve got to go up and up and up,” Braxton continued.

The cast members of The Real apparently, watched the show and responded on their own show.

“We were just watching Wendy live. First of all, thank you for calling us a cute show. We are also an Emmy-winning show, don’t forget that. Tamar Braxton was your guest. We appreciate the fact that you brought us up. Full disclosure, it’s been three years. I don’t know why you guys keep talking about this whole situation,” Loni Love shared. “[I] invited her to come on the show for season six. It was a simple, public ask. I did try to call her privately. I’ve been texting her. I get no response. So I just put it out there. The show has reached out to her. Tamar, nobody is trying to use you as a marketing tool, sweetie.”

Love said that since Braxton apologized publicly they should perhaps “close this loop” permanently.

“You are still welcome right here too at any time. It is not a big deal. Seriously, we as black women have to stick together. We as women have to stick together. It’s no pettiness. We need to have you come here so we can close the circle,” Loni explained.

“You apologize, we opened it up to you and it is still there and it will always be there. We love you, Tamar. You are a powerhouse. You know us so that’s it.”

Other co-hosts of the popular show chimed in the situation as well.

“When you apologized, obviously I didn’t know that it was taken down, we were like man, that’s all I ever wanted was an apology,” Adrienne Bailon shared. “That made us think you extended an olive branch.”
Tamera Mowry-Housley also added her two cents and said that Braxton wasn’t pushed out of the show due to her other former co-hosts.

“The fact is we had no idea. There was no ill intention. There was no meeting. There was none of that. And I can say that to that one up there,” she shared while pointing up to the sky. “So if anybody else believes anything else, that’s on you. And I’m sorry, you know.”

Braxton apparently, caught wind of their response because she then took to Instagram to share a now-deleted post that revealed that Love wrote letters to get her off of The Real.

“When the guilt settles…. Lonnie cut the BS!!! Thanks @Wendy my sister, for having me!!!” she wrote on social media. “U may not have an Emmy YET, but the girls are SURELY watching… anyway, back to my transformation!!” Safe to say this story is to be continued.
