Comedian and actress Thea Vidale, of the sitcom Thea, let the world know prior to the highly anticipated VERZUZ battle between Brandy and Monica that she was rooting for Monica because she felt disrespected by Brandy and her mother, Sonja Norwood.
“I’m tired of people coming at me sideways about Brandy,” Vidale wrote. “I never said she wasn’t talented. I do and will always fundamentally disagree with her and her mama’s disrespect while we worked together on my sitcom. And I stand by that s**t!!”
Brandy addressed the comment recently on “The Morning Hustle,” and when she was asked if there had been an altercation between them she had the following to say: “She didn’t have an altercation. I would just have to say that Thea didn’t really treat me the way I deserved to be treated. I was a child. I respected her, and I loved being on her show. I felt like that was the stepping stone to get to my music career. And I felt maybe, you know, she’s just a little bit bitter because I haven’t seen her do a lot since then. So maybe it was a way to get attention. And I just honestly believe that. She needs a little love right now.”
