Television personality Julissa Bermudez has come roaring to the defense of her best friend Adrienne Bailon after the “The Real” host and actress was blasted on Twitter for comments about her ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian.
Rob's sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter on Tuesday to call out Bailon for statements she made about him and the Kardashian family in the September 2014 issue of Latina magazine. In the magazine, which features her as its cover girl, Bailon talks about her experiences shooting “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and her annoyance with people asking her why she broke up with Rob after he cheated on her.
Following the release of the interview snippets, Kim Kardashian posted a series of tweets directed at Bailon, encouraging her to stop mentioning her family in interviews and to quit rehashing her relationship with Rob. Khloe echoed these feelings in the messages she posted, warning Bailon not to “kick my brother when he’s down.” Though it seemed Bailon had been backed into a lonely corner, her friend and former “Empire Girls” castmate Julissa Bermudez took to her Twitter account on Wednesday to speak out in her support.
In a message to Bailon, Bermudez praised her friend for her years of hard work while also appearing to knock Kim's unconventional rise to fame.

By mentioning Bailon “not laying” on her back “for the world to see,” Bermudez seemed to be clearly alluding to Kim's infamous sex tape with singer Ray J, which has been credited for establishing the reality star’s celebrity when it was leaked in 2003.
Rob and Adrienne broke up in 2009, but she has continually talked about the relationship since their split. This has led many to feel she may be using her ex’s name for publicity.
Also to be noted, as his sisters and ex’s friend go back and forth about their feelings regarding the interview, Rob has yet to comment on the situation. This may have something to do with the fact that he reportedly isn't communicating with either Kim or Khloe at the moment.
