Loni Love wants y’all to know that she was not involved in getting Tamar Braxton fired from “The Real.”

Celebrity news site exclusively broke the news that Braxton was given the boot from the Emmy-award winning daytime talker. But soon after the news began to circulate, Love was hit with a wave of criticism as many accused her of being the reason Tamar was kicked to the curb.

During a chat with “The Breakfast Club” Loni and “The Real” hosts explained what really went down between them and their former co-host.

“We call her, she’s not picking up the phone. She stopped communicating with us and she put out an Instagram [post] saying she was backstabbed,” Love explained.

She went on to say that Tamar gave the impression that Loni was responsible for her firing.

“The first person she unfollowed was me,” she continued. “People assumed that I was the one. I know Tamar — she’s a good person. She probably saw all the heat I was getting, then she unfollowed Jeannie [Mai]. Then after a couple of days, she unfollowed these two [Tamera Mowry-Housley and Adrienne Houghton.”

Love added that the singer’s sister, Towanda Braxton, with good intentions, issued her a warning that took her by surprise.

‘I get on a plane to go to Atlanta [and] guess who’s in front of me, in first class: Towanda,” she said. “She told me they did an emergency episode of Braxton Family Values, and, ‘You need to see the episode.’ I had a person that worked at WEtv. The person that worked at WEtv contacted me [and said], ‘You are being named, the girls are being named,’ and I called my attorney and I said, ‘You gotta call WEtv and let them know if they’re naming us, we’re gonna have to have legal action. That’s defamation of character.”

After then mentioning that the network ended up doing an extra cut, she claimed a blogger who saw a rough cut claimed Herbert believed the ladies were jealous of his then-wife and ex-client.

“Vince said we were jealous, and the he names me specifically, and you know why I say he does that? Because I gave her the number of Rushion McDonald [Steve Harvey’s former manager],” she said.

Later,“ she addressed Braxton’s claims that she should have shared in the cast’s Emmy Awards win, despite her no longer being a part of the show.

“If you didn’t like us, if you thought we had you fired, why would you want to sit with us when we all got nominated for an Emmy?” Love asked.
