Toya Wright Addresses Her Fallout with Tamar Braxton After ‘The Real’ Appearance

Tamar Braxton wasn’t happy her friends Toya Wright and Monica appeared on “The Real” since her firing, so she unfollowed them on Instagram.

But if you ask Toya, the whole situation was weird especially since she could never get on the show while Tamar was there.

Toya gives her two cents on the situation in her new book, “In My Own Words…My Real Reality.”

Baller Alert writes:

In the book, Toya says that she never really asked Tamar why she exited the show. In fact, while Tamar was on the show, Toya says she was never able to come on as a guest.

“My friend was on the talk show for what I believe was two seasons and I was never able to go on there. After my friend was fired, my publicist was able to get me on the show, which I found to be stranger. I never had a convo with my homegirl about what happened to her and how she ended up leaving the talk show. All I knew is that she no longer worked there. ”

Toya says that she felt great about getting to be on the show and discuss her new book. However, little did she know that drama was to follow.

“I was able to release the cover art of my new book on the show. I was super excited! Little did I know, when I was done with the show I was gonna lose a friend and get unfollowed. It was news to my ears as I logged on to my social media accounts to see that I was tagged in all kinds of posts saying that myself and another friend were unfollowed for going on the show.”

Toya doesn’t name the friend, but many believe that it could have been Monica, who appeared on The Real just a few days before Toya did.

Toya says she was not only shocked, but hurt that Tamar wouldn’t call her personally to discuss her feelings. She also wanted the opportunity to explain that appearing on the show was a business move and not to be taken personal. Toya says she wasn’t trying to take her job, she was just promoting her book, and didn’t understand why Tamar would feel so slighted that she wouldn’t reach out. “I guess I lost a friend, or maybe she was an associate,” Toya writes. “Either way another lesson learned. When people show you who they are, believe them.”

  1. I think both of them are wrong. Tamar shouldn’t have unfollowed them like she did but if you’re my close friend, I’m not going to go on a show that wrongly terminated you. Where’s the loyalty?

  2. I wouldn’t have gone on the show if I were Toya… but that’s just the type of friend I am. Plus if Toya had nothing to promote (other than her failing relationship that she was using for reality TV checks) then was she trying to get on The Real before. Let’s not forget Tamar had Toya’s back when it came to the whole Memphitz K.Michelle situation. And Tamar has her own show coming out. I can see how she would feel betrayed.

  3. I am Team Tamar on this one. If you’re supposed to be my friend and you know how dirty those producers did me, why the hell would you go on that show?! Tamar was a real friend to Toya and even showed support when her brothers were murdered. I know Tamar does the most all the damn time but I feel her on this one. Friends should have a code and Toya was just looking out for self. There are other shows she could have promoted on. Hell the ratings are flopping anyway.

  4. Meh, I think Tamar was petty to unfollow but I can understand why she felt some type of way. In her mind she was fired in a despicable way, and her own friends didn’t seem to care enough to find other platforms for promotion. That was selfish on their parts. If I’m chilling with you on a regular basis and going to funerals of your family members, the least you can do is not go on a show that plotted to kick me out.

  5. When did a social media follow become so important? So people dont make calls or texts or sit downs to air their feelings anymore? If a follow or unfollow affects her mood she really needs to reexamine her life

  6. My petty side agrees with Tamar for the fact of her being “wrongly fired” then her friends decide to go on the show to boost rates basically. But my reality side is asking why weren’t “her friends” invited to the show before she was fired.. Tamar seems to show a lot of jealously traits. If you know your friend ain’t no big star/celebrity and that’s they way (promoting) making ends meet then swallow your pride for your friend and tell that btch to go get them coins!

  7. Tamar is right though! Friends don’t go on shows that dogged out their friends! Toya knows she could have promoted her book in so many other places like she has in the past. And like someone already said, ratings aren’t even that good so why was she so pressed to get on there anyway? Seems shady to me.

  8. Naw Toya is wrong. When your friend gets fired, you gotta ride with em. And Tamar has her own show now, so it’s not like she wouldn’t have had a hookup on there.
