Tamar Braxton discussed her current relationship status with her former “The Real” co-hosts during a recent interview with the “State of Black Music” podcast.
“The Real,” which ran from 2013 to 2022, was a daytime television show which at one point featured Braxton, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, and Jeanie Mai. Braxton would ultimately leave the series in 2016 after she was let go. Immediately following Braxton’s exit, the singer would blame all four women for getting her fired, which they all denied. Since then Braxton has reconciled with Bailon and Mowry.
In the June 17 interview, Braxton expressed that despite hashing out the public feud, she’s only been able to connect with Bailon and Mowry. Braxton claimed that she and Mai didn’t have any beef. In fact, Braxton insisted that the “Hello Hunnay with Jeannie Mai” star vouched for her when she was fired.
She said, “Well, I’ve only connected with Adrienne and Tamera. I mean a lot of people think me and Jeannie had beef, but we didn’t. When everything happened, she was the most vocal out of everyone behind the scenes, and that’s not something that people know. I never said anything because I didn’t know if that’s something she was comfortable with. … I appreciate her for that, because she didn’t have to.”
While switching the subject, Braxton mentioned how much she loved Bailon and the lessons she learned from their friendship.
Vraxton said, “I think Adrienne is an amazing human being, and I’ve learned a lot from her with her relationships with females. She’s taught me how to truly let things go and not have beef but not have any affiliation. But I love her. We don’t have beef and we do have affiliation. I’m not talking about her. She taught me that and that was big in my life.”
When asked if she and Love have reconciled, Braxton replied, “I haven’t seen Loni.” As one of the podcast’s co-hosts pleaded with Braxton to go see Love, she responded, “I don’t feel that’s a conversation that needs to be pushed. I feel like God hasn’t allowed us to come face to face or come into that situation because it’s not time.”
Braxton added, “You know what I mean, whether it’s for me or for her, I don’t necessarily need to have a conversation with her to forgive her, because I already have. I don’t need to have a conversation for the public. … I feel like everything is in God’s divine timing and order, and when that comes time, it will happen. I welcome it. That’s where I am with it.”
Toward the end of the conversation Braxton described Mowry as a “phenomenal human being” and shared that the actress even contacted her after Traci Braxton’s passing from esophageal cancer in March. Braxton wrapped up by saying she was grateful for the friendships she got to experience on the show and all the memories she and the ladies shared.
She stated, “I just really appreciate those relationships that’s come out of a show. … I’m grateful for the memories and all the success from it.”
