Toya Wright Says Tamar Braxton Was Never My Friend
While promoting her new book “In My Own Words…My Real Reality”, Toya Wright clarifies the fallout that she had with Tamar Braxton. When asked if she feels like she was blocked from appearing on ‘The Real, when Tamar was still on the show she says,
I mean, I will say this – I was out promoting [My Super Sweet 16] and somebody reached out about me going on a show and her response was they weren’t allowing any reality stars on the show — [that] was what I was told. So, I’m like ‘okay’. I turn next week Tiny and Shekinah is on there. So I’m like ‘Okay, cool. It’s whatever. I’m not tripping off that’. I did Wendy Williams.
So after that, my publicist reached out this time to get on the show and they said they never heard about me coming on the show. So it was like a first time thing or whatever and I did the show not to throw shade, not to be disloyal to promote my project. I don’t have a platform. Any time I’m able to promote of course I’m going to take that and if you’re my friend you’re gonna be supportive of that.
Toya says that she found out that Tamar had unfollowed her on social media, the day after appearing on ‘The Real’.
Because of this situation, Toya says she feels like the two weren’t really friends.
When I leave the next day, it’s like all this stuff in the media….I’m like ‘Is this real?’ I wasn’t going on the show to take her job. One thing about me, my loyalty has never been questioned … I don’t compete with my friends. I don’t hate on my friends. I want all my friends to win. Anything you’re doing I’m going to support.
I have nothing against Tamar. In that situation it shows me you were never my friend. First of all, I hadn’t spoken to Tamar, it was like 8 or 9 months. We have a mutual friend which is Tiny and Tamar and I became friends because of Tiny. I still considered her to be a cool girl. She’s a friend of mine. That was a little petty with me.
She explains that she had no issue when Tamar performed with K.Michelle, whom she feuded with for years publicly.
When I had the situation with K.Michelle, I wasn’t mad that you performed with her. That was your job. I’m not that type of girl. I don’t expect you not to grace the stage with her. I don’t come in between your coins. It is what it is, I wish her the best. I was never trying to be shady. If you work at Saks and I get fired from Saks, I can’t go to Saks no more. Sh*t, I love Saks.
Toya also reveals that she took issue that Tamar was the only one of her friends that didn’t post her book on social media.
All my friends posted my book, but her. I hit her like ‘Can you post my book for me?’ and she was like ‘I can’t post the book’ because her team or whatever [said] it’s called How To Lose A Husband. And I’m like, first of all, it’s not about how to lose a husband. And if my team tell me I can’t promote my friend, that’s like shady. That’s just how she get down and I just don’t — when people show you who you are, believe them.
