‘Is That Toilet Paper I See’: Loni Love’s Virtual Birthday Party Lightens Up When Fans Get Distracted by the Items In the Background

Loni Love celebrated her 49th birthday on Tuesday, July 14, and marked the occasion with a virtual birthday party. True to the form, the comedian turned up with a bottle of Hennessy and enjoyed a dinner night with family and friends.

Loni posted a video on Instagram that showed her chatting with a few of her friends, including comedian Guy Torry, Kym Whitley, and Sherri Shepherd, while enjoying her cognac. The co-host of “The Real” came camera-ready, sporting a colorful curling ribbon on her head that she described as her “birthday hat” and a patterned long-sleeved shirt. During the conversations, viewers got a peek at what appeared to be her living room. In the background, fans could see her birthday balloons, a bouquet of roses, a billboard of her memoir “I Tried to Change So You Don’t Have To: True Life Lessons,” and several stacks of toilet paper.

The Detroit native has been spending her shelter-in-place days learning how to create TikTok videos in addition to stocking up on toilet paper. In June, Loni shared a video on Instagram that showed her imitating a man asking for assistance with using the social media platform. Some people teased the former engineer about her age, insinuating that she was too old to be creating content on the video-sharing service.
