Brandy has responded to Thea Vidale’s claims that she was disrespectful to the comedian when they worked together back in the day.
We previously reported… it all started when Thea took to social media recently to note her support for Monica ahead of the virtual Verzuz between the two singers.
“Let’s go—I’m rooting for Monica !” Vidale wrote on Twitter.
As reported by MadameNoire, when folks slammed her remarks, the comedian fired back by setting a few things straight.
“I’m tired of people coming at me sideways about Brandy,” she 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 sh-t !!”

But what do yall think of this? #brandynorwood #rayj #neversaynever #almostdoesntcount #haveyouever #theboyismine #monicadenise
“Your favorites can be wrong sometimes,” she wrote. “Stop being selective about that, just because you like a celebrities [sic[ work ! ! We are all humans who do sh-t that we need to be checked for, sometime !!!!,” she added.
She went on to name other female celebrities who claimed to have an issue with Brandy including Sheryl Lee Ralph, Adina Howard and Countess Vaughn.
Weeks later, while speaking to the cast of “The Morning Hustle,” Brandy denied that there had been an altercation with Thea, herself and her mother when she starred on the 90’s sitcom “Thea.”
“Thea didn’t really treat me the way that 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,” Brandy explained.
“I think that maybe she’s just a little bit bitter, because I haven’t seen her do a lot since then. So I think it was just a way to get attention. I honestly believe that. She needs a little love right now.”
“Thea” ran for one season from 1993 to 1994. Brandy went on to star in the hit sitcom “Moesha” for six seasons, which is currently streaming on Netflix. While speaking to The Morning Hustle, she also responded to criticism from fans that her onscreen father Frank Mitchell is toxic.
“You know what, I haven’t even paying attention. I’ve just been so thankful that it’s on such a platform like Netflix and it’s been trending forever. I’m focusing on the possibility of us doing a reboot. ‘My dad’ can make up for all of that in the reboot.”
