With Kobe Bryant‘s historic 20-year NBA career coming to a close this evening in Los Angeles, everyone with any connection to the man whatsoever is sharing their stories about the Black Mamba. This includes the ladies of The Real, which, in case you’ve never seen it, is basically The View only younger, hipper, and with all black hosts.

But that story paled in comparison to that of former R&B singer Tamar Braxton (i.e. Toni Braxton‘s sister), who says she went on a date with Kobe back in the day. A date to TGI Fridays.
