AceShowbiz - Loni Love has defended herself for dating a white man. "The Real" co-host recently took to her Twitter account to slam those who have been questioning her decision to date her boyfriend James Welsh.
"Amazed at times at the folks concerned that I am dating a White male...," the comedian said on Friday, August 23. She went on noting, "For years Black males have dated White and 'E xotic' women and no one questions it," before adding the hashtag of #lovewhileyoucan at the end of her post.
Fans agreed with her as one of them replied, "Exactly!! I am invisible until I am on the arm of a white man...then Black men have a problem with it, but prefer to date other races." Another one urged her to ignore the haters and just live the way she wants. "People have an issue because they don't have anyone and you do. You and James are cute. As long as you're happy."
"Don't pay those people any mind; they are probably just unhappy in their own lives. Love who you love & who loves you in return!" added one other. Another comment, meanwhile, read, "You do you. People are gonna hate. If he is making you happy and fulfilling your dreams in a mate, go and be happy."
That aside, Loni said that she was cutting all alcohol in preparation for season 6 of "The Real". "Cutting all alcohol, adult beverages, Jesus Juice until the pemire of season 6 of @TheRealDaytime," she wrote on Monday, August 19. "Pray for me...."
It arrived after the TV star made a major push to look out for her health by being an ambassador for Weight Watchers in the spring. One of the things she loved about the personalized plans put together for her through WW was that she wouldn't have to go without some of her favorite things, including pasta and a good drink.
"I love pasta [laughs]. I love me some pasta, girl. My plan with my numbers, if I do it right, I can have me some pasta, have me a little glass of wine and I'm still on track. I'm like, wow, it's so refreshing," she said back in May. "Plus, once I was announced as ambassador, Oprah Winfrey posted it on her IG. She basically said, save up your points for some tequila shots. I'm like, yes! I can still have my shots? I'm like, 'OK. Alright. I'm sold.' "
