“I don’t know what I’d ever do without you
From the beginnin’ ’til the end
You’ve always been here right beside me
So I call you my best friend!”
Sing Brandy Norwood! That’s probably what’s on Tamar’s playlist this afternoon after her friend gathered ‘The Real’ producers and staff last night. Now that it’s been confirmed that Tamar was fired things have taken off and some are not feeling it. Mr. L Davis came to his friend’s defense about all the things that have taken place in the last 48 hours.
Monday morning ‘The Real’ aired an episode that showed Tamar looking upset and not feeling it while walking to the stage with her now former co-hosts. Davis claims that episode wasn’t supposed to be aired till later this summer. And that they dropped the episode to support the narrative of why she was probably let go.
Somebody get Olivia Pope on the scene! That’s if she can help considering ‘Scandal’ won’t be on for some time. Bloop. This whole situation is getting out of hand. We still are unsure on why Tamar was let go.
Of course, she was good for the show as far as entertainment but why would producers risk losing ratings by letting her go. There has to be more to this story. Davis’s story makes some sense. He went on twitter rant spilling all the details.
Take a look at the tweets below.
I hope he isn’t under contract! The episode that they aired Monday did show an upset Tamar and it has made its rounds across social media. Helping the narrative that she is difficult to work with. They know what they’re doing over there. When it rains it pours.
They dragged poor Loni Love so bad she locked up her Instagram. Some assumed that some of the co-hosts spoke with producers to get rid of her. Hmm, that would explain the backstabbing comment Tamar made.
Loni’s Instagram is unlocked now but it just goes to show you had upset people are and pointing fingers without knowing the full tea.
Here’s my opinion.
I honestly think Tamar was let go for several reasons. Being difficult to work with. I can see it. Some of you can too. Look how many former assistants have come out to say they weren’t treated right or paid. “The show won’t be the same without her.” Correct. That’s why they let her go. They want the show to change obviously which is why they gave her the boot. The Real might want to go in a different direction. Tamar’s personality is too strong for a cast of other women. It’s like others can’t speak without being overtalked. ‘The Real’ was the Tamar’s show with friends. That’s probably why they let her go.
Producers don’t care about petty things until it affects their coins. Tamar has been stretched too far. It’s no one’s fault but Tamar’s that’s why her last album sells were abysmal. Her attitude and personality made it where she had to sell in the 100k and up or else. She didn’t. Although she did well on Dancing With the Stars she didn’t finish. She will not be homeless she has a husband that will make sure her needs are satisfied. She will bounce back. Trust me.
Why do you think Tamar was let go? And do you believe Mr. Davis tweets? Or is he trying to make sure he continues to get a check?
Uncle Snoop Get Your Apology to Ari Lennox Ready
Apparently, everyone’s favorite uncle likes apologizing. Fresh off of his apology tour for his controversial comments towards broadcast journalists Gayle King, Snoop Dogg decided to comment on Ari Lennox’s Instagram live to instruct her to “grow your own hair.”
Yesterday, the Dreamville songbird took to Instagram Live in true Ari fashion to document her trying on a new lace front wig. Not known for wearing wigs, she struggled with figuring out how much lace to cut and securing the hair as she entertained her followers with hilarious gestures and commentary.
Eventually, a snippet of the video ended up on The Shade Room for everyone’s viewing pleasure.
Moments later, Snoop was unnecessarily commenting under the video.
In no time, women were coming to Ari’s defense, reminding the legendary rapper that his wife and daughter are no strangers to wigs.
You’d think men would know to leave their opinions to themselves when it comes to women’s hair, especially black women, but clearly, Uncle Snoop forgot to read that particular memo.
Once Ari caught wind of Snoop’s comments, she delivered a lovely little shade tree, posting a photo of Snoop wearing a blonde wig with the caption, “Uncle I just…I just thought we had an understanding….”
Following the backlash that he’s currently receiving, I can already envision the apology that’s sure to follow. Perhaps someone should remind Uncle Snoop that the best apology is changed behavior…
DJ D-Nice Has Spun His Way Into the Living Rooms of Thousands
Every day, legendary DJ D-Nice (a.k.a. Derrick Jones) spends countless hours helping thousands of global citizens forget about the coronavirus pandemic and financial woes with his “Homeschool” parties.
Initially jumping on Instagram Live to cure his boredom while “self-isolating,” D-Nice had an audience of a few hundred, mostly friends. As word began to spread, it grew to a few thousand. By Sunday, over 160,000 people joined his live for a virtual party that included the heavyweights such as Michelle Obama, Jennifer Lopez, Jada Pinkett-Smith, 9th Wonder, Jimmy Fallon, and Vice President Joe Biden.
During a CBS This Morning interview, D-Nice shared, “I literally just played what feels good. I wanted people to feel good. I wanted their experience to be lifted through music, just one song at a time.” And he’s done just that. While on live, his comment section is a constant stream of cheers, shout outs, and music-lovers asking, “Where the drinks at?” It feels like the best VIP section you’ll ever experience but from your living room.
“No matter what your problems are, you can put on a good tune and it just takes you away and I was trying to do that,” he explained. “It wasn’t just the music, it was the whole experience and everyone escaping what’s going on today just for a few hours.”
While some of his neighbors have complained about the noise, D-Nice is committed to keeping the party going as the universal language of music is playing a vital role in keeping us all connected.
We have DJ D-Nice to thank for that!
Jay Electronica & Joe Budden Used Their Twitter Fingers to Exchange Insults
It took 10 years for Jay Electronica to release his highly-anticipated album, A Written Testimony. While some are singing his praises, others are incredibly disappointed. One such person is former rapper turned media personality, Joe Budden.
Budden used his platform, The Joe Budden Podcast episode Dry Snitching to express his disappointment. Budden proclaimed, “You’ve been missing for ten years- which is cool, ’cause you’ve been living life. But that confidence that I thought you might’ve been living life with is suppressed…that lens that I’m looking through paints the story of a different MC. And that MC is one that would get smacked around by Hov on every song.”
In response, Electronica took to Twitter and posted a video clip of DaBaby saying “fuck it,” directing the tweet at Rory, one of the co-hosts on Budden’s podcast.
Shortly after, Budden responded referring to Jay-Z’s performance on A Written Testimony, where he appears on eight of ten tracks. “I never got absolutely mopped around on my own project either… @ me, not Rory.”
Here’s how the rest of that conversation went:
The tirade ended with Electronica demanding credit for “lighting up” the podcast episode.
Electronica released A Written Testimony on Friday, March 13th. It’s his first solo album after more than ten years of delays with features by Jay-Z, The-Dream and Travis Scott, with additional production by The Alchemist, No ID, Swizz Beatz and Hit-Boy.
