Tamar Braxton once referred to Wendy Williams as “My girl” when Williams visited her in the studio a couple of years ago.
Plus, Braxton has been on “The Wendy Williams Show” more than once, where she’s revealed personal details about her life. The talk show host has reportedly hung out with Braxton on a personal level too.
So some were probably surprised the “Love & War” singer hasn’t reached out to Williams while she’s been living in a sober house and dealing with rumors that her husband Kevin Hunter is having an affair. It’s also been said that his alleged mistress Sharina Hudson recently had his baby.
Last month Williams shocked many when she admitted to living in a sober house for addiction. This was after she left her show for three months.
On Sunday’s episode of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” one of the callers asked Braxton if she contacted Williams since the sober facility and cheating rumors.
“I haven’t. And let me just tell you why, and I thought about it,” she said. “I haven’t reached out to her because sometimes people need their space when they’re really, really going through things.”
“Her whole life is in the public eye, and you don’t know what’s really the truth, and what’s not the truth, and so you just kind of wait and let people come to you,” added Braxton. “You might send a message like, ‘I’m here for you,’ but sometimes you don’t even want to hear that. You just kind of got to go through it and then reach out to people.”
But some didn’t buy Braxton’s reason about wanting to give Williams space, and they called her a fake friend.
“Tamar isn’t real friends with Wendy,” one person wrote on YouTube. “A real friend shows up. I don’t think Wendy has any close solid girlfriends.”
“Nope – you’ve got to reach out and let someone suffering know that you’re thinking of them and ready to support them,” someone else wrote.
