Amanda Seales Leaves “The Real”: I Can’t Speak To My People The Way They Need To Be Spoken To
Amanda Seales is not returning to The Real. The talk show host, actress and comedian shared the news on social media noting that she opted not to renew her contract, after being on the show for six months. She states,
Well you know what happened to me today – I have arrived because my contract is up at The Real and I didn’t renew it, because it doesn’t feel good to my soul to be at a place where I can not, speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to. And where the people that are speaking to me in despairing ways are not being handled.
I’m not at a space where as a full black woman I can have my voice and my co-workers also have their voices and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for black voices to be at the top too.
