Loni Love is denying the claims of a former friend and colleague who claimed that she witnessed the daytime talk host send emails that lead to Tamar Braxton’s demise from “The Real”. Cookie Hull, a comedian, and writer who says she worked closely with Loni for years said in an interview that Loni was plotting to have Tamar Braxton fried from “The Real” because she wanted to be the only “ghetto” one.
In a recent interview with Madame Noire, Love says she doesn’t even speak like that.
“I don’t know if you want to talk about this or not—but Cookie Hull recently did an interview with Comedy Hype and she made some claims that it was you who wrote an e-mail to get Tamar fired and you wanted to be the only ‘ghetto’ Black girl on the show. You addressed it a little bit on “The Real” but didn’t say her name. So I wanted to know what you thought about that.
I do have thoughts about that that I addressed in my book. But I will say this, anybody that knows me, knows that I will not describe myself as a ghetto girl. I wouldn’t describe Tamar Braxton as a ghetto girl. I might say that we believe in the power of being ourselves. But ghetto girl?! I would never do that. And also, there’s a lesson in this. When you try to help people, you have to watch who you help. I’ve never been against any Black woman. My fans know that. That’s the reason why I wrote this book. When you read the book, you will see. I’ve been trying to get the truth out for years. But here, we dealing with this reality show type [mentality]. I do address that in my book.”
In related news, Tamar seems peeved that people are talking about her in the news again. Hit the flip to see what she said.
Clearly perturbed, Tamar took to Twitter to say this:
Whew..I’m so over that Chile with my name in her mouth AGAIN *cues choir..* picks up microphone sings iiiiiiiii know I’ve been changed. join me tomorrow on Instagram LIVE at 9pm est! Can’t wait to answer all and I mean ALL of your questions on #asktayanything
Welp, there’s that. Loni’s memoir “I Tried To Change So YOu Don’t Have To” goes on sale in May 2020. You can get more information here. Will you be reading Loni’s book to figure out the whole truth here?
