*As we get closer to the launch of season 3 on “The Real,” one of the show’s co-hosts, Lonnie Love, is on the promotional trail apparently. Earlier this week, she stopped by the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” to let fans in on what they could be seeing in the wake of Tamar Braxton being booted from the talker

“Let me say this about season three of ‘The Real’… we wanna thank the fans for supporting us. Season three is going to be phenomenal. I know there are a lot of changes that are happening. Warner Brothers is making the decision of what they want to do as far as a co-host. I think it’ll be guest co-hosts,” said Loni.

She’s asking fans to “send love” to Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Tamera Mowry-Housley and to stop the backlash because they had no idea what was happening.

“It’s been a hard summer on them.Send some love because it’s been hard. It’s totally different for all of us because we were such a good unit. Nobody knew about [Tamar getting fired]. It was nobody’s fault. I want the fans to understand that. I think a lot of people are confused about what happened. I wanna make that known — we need to stop. Stop calling me names on the Internet… Since my ex-boyfriend I’ve never been called that many.. . I didn’t have anything to do with this… They’re calling me all kinds of names.”

But, apparently Ms. Braxton heard about Loni’s comments and wasn’t pleased. She headed straight to Twitter and got off a few shots. See below.
