The comedian has gone a step further than her previous Instagram post supporting Tamar Braxton in her firing from “The Real,” and has filmed a video for YouTube to set the record straight — a move she says was prompted after watching Wendy Williams express her belief this week that Love knew about Tamar’s firing when Love appeared on her show the previous Friday.
Loni revealed that she actually taped Friday’s “Wendy” on Thursday and didn’t find out about Tamar’s firing until Saturday.
“I love you Wendy, but I have to say I didn’t know,” Loni says in the video.
According to Loni, none of the co-hosts were aware that Tamar was leaving until she texted them Saturday in their group chat, saying “I heard I’m being fired.” Loni said the first person to respond was Tamera. Loni responded after waking up from a two-hour nap and immediately called Tamar, but did not get a response.
Loni said the network officially informed her Saturday night about Tamar’s firing. When she asked for the reason, Loni said producers would not say.
