Last week, we confirmed the news about a new talk show, called ‘The Real’, was set to hit TV and now we have even more details. ”The Real” is led by five bold, diverse and outspoken hosts — Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley.
We’ve checked out the promo for the show and hands down, their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships.
Check out bios of the cast:
As a founding member of the R&B group The Braxtons, Tamar Braxton is a rising musical superstar, currently starring on WE’s reality TV program “Tamar & Vince,” a spinoff of WE’s successful series “Braxton Family Values.” Married five years to music executive Vince Herbert, the couple has welcomed their first child, a baby boy, this June. Tamar says:
A lot of people think, because they see me on ‘Braxton Family Values’ as the youngest of five sisters, that I’m this brat and I’m just spoiled, but on this show I get to be a woman. I get to give you my real opinion about life, about pop culture, and finally be identified as just a regular lady.
The five of us, we are still trying to figure out our lives…What people are going to find out about me from this show is that I used to be an engineer, I was raised in the Brewster projects, I became an entertainer, and I am still discovering myself.
We are Latino Americans, we are mainstream, we speak English, and we want to be able to watch English language television that still represents us.
You know what really bothers me, the fact that there are so many Asian stereotypes that nobody has stepped forward to break…I have an amazing driving record, I haven’t had a ticket in the last five years, I can’t play the violin to save my life nor the keyboard, I suck at math and I’m proud…So how do you like them wontons?
I love to be traditional and just because you are conservative or a traditional person doesn’t mean you have to be boring! …The greatest thing about America is its diversity and this show reflects that diversity. No matter who you are, there is someone at this table that will be speaking for you.
And for what we’ve all been waiting for…the teaser!
