Loni Love wants to bring Tamar Braxton back to ‘The Real’ … sort of

To show that there are no hard feelings after the explosive ouster of Tamar Braxton from “The Real,” one of its co-hosts wants to bring the singer back on — as a guest.

As “The Real” prepares for the airing of the sixth season of its popular show, Loni Love, 48, said she wanted to have the singer on as a guest. Remember, accusations of betrayal and back-stabbing began flying around the set when Braxton, 42, was unceremoniously ousted from the show in 2016.

When she was fired, Braxton accused her co-workers of setting her up. Most of Braxton’s ire was aimed at Love. But the other co-hosts — Adrienne Bailon, Tamera Mowry-Housley, and Jeannie Mai — said they were shocked that Braxton was not returning.

Later on, in 2016, Love told “The Breakfast Club” morning radio show that Braxton’s ex-husband and manager Vincent Herbert had something to do with Braxton’s termination.

“Something happened and he knows what happened. He’s trying to save face, I believe, because he knows something had happened, either some deal that messed up, I don’t know,” said Loni. “It wasn’t like they had a meeting, we tiptoed to the office, we don’t have that type of power. We got no power.”

How Herbert specifically impacted Braxton’s employment on “The Real” has never been revealed.

Nonetheless, Braxton has since apologized to her former colleagues over the controversy of her removal, setting the stage for her possible return and reconciliation.
