People Thought Lolo Jones Got Kicked Off “Celebrity Big Brother” For Fighting With Tamar Braxton, But She Wasn’t
UsWeekly is reporting that Celebrity Big Brother has had its first real drama emerge from the boiling mass of washed-up has-beens and never-wases who are all stewing in a house together. Toni Braxton’s sister Tamar Braxton and Olympic hurdler/the virgin who can’t stop talking about being a virgin Lolo Jones got into it big time and things got physical, almost. And fans thought that Lolo followed The Mooch out of the door early for slapping Tamar, but that didn’t happen.
While watching the live-feed of the CBB house on Saturday, viewers were probably hoping to catch a glimpse of some of the contestants banging (I mean why else would you need a live-feed?!). What they really saw was 36-year-old Lolo and 41-year-old Tamar getting into a screaming match with each other. Why? Something about someone in the house lying or being a liar? Unclear, but we’re here for the drama, not the sense. Here’s a loose transcript of the televised fight:
Tamar: “Y’all are real funny.”
Lolo: “I’m not funny… Here’s the problem today, you want me to tell you what happened and then you snap off on me.”
Tamar: “Don’t start.”
Lolo: “No, I’m gonna fucking start because you asked me what the fuck and then you pop off… So why the fuck would I not get mad? …You do this every motherfucking day. Like don’t fucking start with me.”
Tamar: “Girl if you don’t grow up. Girl you can throw whatever you want–I am from Baltimore, you don’t want that problem.”
Eventually Lolo called Tamar a “bitch” and she takes it well (opposite) and is escorted out of the room by housemate Kandi Burruss. Then, on the live-feed, we see Tamar speaking with Kandi as Lolo walks by and things begin anew:
Tamar: “Next time somebody call me a bitch I’m just gonna start yanking.”
Lolo: “Then do it.”
Tamar: “Then say it.”
Tamar must’ve been anticipating getting a smack down by a bitch, which is why she wore that Tron face visor thing:
As Lolo walks past Tamar on her way to the DR, Tamar says to Kandi "The next time somebody calls me a b!tch, I'm just gonna' start yankin'.
Lolo says "then do it"
Tamar says "then say it"
Etc. etc. until we get another "BRB"

At that point, the live feed cut out and people were left to speculate if Tamar did in fact “start yanking.” Which we can all assume she did not since when the live feed came back both Tamar and Lolo were still in the house.
Lolo, it’s a long game and you just started: you don’t want Tamar coming after you for calling her a bitch again, she will get yanking mad. But if you wanna try another approach, call her a muppet and see if that defuses things.
