Tamar Braxton’s former The Real co-host Loni Love is accusing her fans of bullying her and her co-stars in the wake of Tamar’s surprise firing from the daytime talk show earlier this year.
Love recently spoke out about Braxton’s departure and her fans’ reactions during an appearance on The Tom Joyner Morning Show where she implied that Braxton’s dedicated followers have been bullying her and her co-stars ever since it was announced that Tamar would not be returning for Season 3 back in May.
“It’s been a hard summer on them. Send some love because it’s been hard,” Love said of her fellow The Real co-hosts, Adrienne Bailon, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Jeannie Mai on the radio show, continuing to deny feud rumors and dispelling the report that the ladies were aware that Tamar would not be asked back for a third season.
“It’s totally different for all of us because we were such a good unit. Nobody knew. It was nobody’s fault. I want the fans to understand that,” Love said.
According to Gossip On This, she continued by urging Braxton’s fans to stop bullying her and The Real co-hosts through negative and hurtful messages amid the feud rumors.
“I think a lot of people are confused about what happened [with Braxton]. I want to make that known — we need to stop,” said Love, referring to Tamar’s fans angry about her termination.
“Stop calling me names on the internet… Since my ex-boyfriend I’ve never been called that many [names],” Loni continued of the bullying she receives. “I didn’t have anything to do with this. They’re calling me all kinds of names.”
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Tamar and The Real’s fans were quick to point the finger at Love after it was announced that Braxton had been fired from the show and accused the two of being locked in a nasty feud, though Loni has vehemently denied her involvement in Braxton’s firing.
Loni then went on to reveal exactly what will be happening with Braxton’s vacated The Real seat, admitting that her position will more than likely be taken over by a slew of guest co-hosts rather than hiring a permanent replacement.
“Season 3 is going to be phenomenal. I know there are a lot of changes that are happening,” Love confirmed of the upcoming season, which will be the first in the show’s history not to feature Tamar on the hosting panel. “Warner Brothers is making the decision of what they want to do as far as a co-host. I think it’ll be guest co-hosts.”
Tamar Braxton is yet to respond to Loni Love’s suggestion that her followers have been bullying her and her co-stars through social media, though Braxton made it clear that she didn’t exactly enjoy Loni bringing up her name during her most recent radio interview.
According to BET, Braxton took to social media to make her feelings known when it comes to her former The Real co-stars, slamming Loni, Adrienne, Tamera and Jeannie and accusing them of using her name for press and publicity for the show.
“I wish that I would stop being brought up since I was so BAD,” Tamar tweeted and deleted on August 5, according to a screen shot captured by The Shade Room amid the bullying accusations. “I’ve never said anything bad nor will I.”
“No shade… but don’t believe the hype!” Tamar continued after Loni accused her followers of cyberbullying her former co-stars. “I haven’t spoken to [anyone]… real friends don’t need press,” Braxton added, suggesting that there could be some truth to the feud reports.
Tamar then went on to take pretty serious aim at both Tamera and Adrienne in the string of now deleted tweets, accusing them both of only attending her son’s third birthday party in June to “save their a***s.”
Loni’s Braxton bullying accusation comes just weeks after she told Page Six that a number of The Real ladies have tried to reach out to Tamar, but have gotten no response.
“None of the girls have spoken to [Tamar] recently,” confirmed Love. “We’ve reached out, but we haven’t heard from her. People just want time. You can’t badger them or make them talk. It’s understandable.”
