Toya Wright took the high road when asked about her very public beef with Tamar Braxton, wishing the singer well wishes and calling on Black women in the industry to be better role models.
“I would like to say that I wish Tamar Braxton the best. I have nothing negative to say about her. I think she’s an amazing singer — very talented. I wish her much success,” Wright said during a taping of the morning talk show “Sister Circle LIVE.”
The reality star also had a message for African-American women in the entertainment business who take to the Internet to air out their dirty laundry.
“And as far as Black women in the entertainment industry who have those conflicts, I just feel like they we use social media platforms to kind of air out a lot of cattiness and pettiness. And I myself…I’m a victim of it as well. But we have to do better,” she added. “We have to start setting more positive examples for our youth who follow us and look up to us, because the girl fights, the Twitter beefs and Instagram shade throwing—it just needs to stop.”
Wright’s comments come after months of friction with Braxton, who she got into a heated argument with on Instagram over the fall out of their friendship. After Braxton made up with mutual friend Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and subsequently called out Wright for publishing a book airing out their dirty laundry.
At the time of the public fight, Wright called Braxton “the fakest bitch I know.”
