“The Real” is a new one-hour, daily talk show hosted by the dynamic team of Tamar Braxton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon, that debuted Monday, September 15, 2014, on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast in primetime on cable network bet. Led by five bold, diverse and outspoken hosts, these women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. 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. Braxton, Mowry-Housley, Love, Mai and Bailon are all going through varied life experiences, including new motherhood, new marriages, dating or singledom, that relate to every woman’s own trials and tribulations. Unlike other talk shows, each of the five hosts is admittedly a “work in progress,” and fearlessly invites the home audience into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion will turn the traditional talk show on its head.
In its premiere week, “The Real’s” guests included rapper The Game, Jennie Garth (HGTV’S “The Jennie Garth Project”), Ray J (Singer and star of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood”), Laurence Fishburne (ABC’s “Black-ish”) and more.
