What do you get when you pair Tamar Braxton up with actress Tamera Mowry-Housley, TV personality Adrienne Bailon, comedian Loni Love and fashion expert Jeannie Mai? You get a more diverse, hip and younger version of The View. Hello!
On July 15, a new roundtable style show titled The Real will make it’s debut on Fox affiliate stations and it will feature the five busy career ladies dishing on everything from the latest celeb gossip to their views on love, sex and relationships. Basically the girls will be chatting about all the things we love to talk about during after work happy hours and visits to the salon.
A teaser of the new show has hit the net, and it shows the girls sharing fun tidbits, such as Tamera’s revelation that she dated actor Seth MacFarlane for a day:
I dated Seth MacFarlane for a day. He loves black girls and I’m the reason why! Once you go black you never go back!
There are other relatable topics that are covered, such as Jeannie Mai having to schedule time to have sex with her hubby because of her busy career, and of course, with such a diverse cast, the topic will venture into race. At one point in the panel, Jeannie asks Tamar why she would be mad at a black man for dating outside of his race and Tamar’s response was:
“Because I was bitter as hell! When you are in that space, especially when you like a guy, and he got a little interracial relationship going on, you start feeling a certain type of way towards those women. Maybe my self esteem wasn’t where it was supposed to be.”
Overall, the cast is very diverse and seems to have great chemistry. Three of the girls are married and two are single. Tamera’s selling point of the show was:
The greatest thing about America is it’s diversity. This show reflects that diversity. No matter who you are, there is someone at this table that will be speaking for you.
