Keeping It “Real”


Now, ladies, is the time for us to keep it real. If you  love to talk about new trends, the latest drama on our favorite reality show, and our current existent (or in some cases, nonexistent) relationships, you should check out  Fox’s new show “The Real.”

The new talk show features a round table of some Hollywood favorites, R&B and reality star Tamar Braxton, actress Tamera Mowery-Housley, former Cheetah Girl and actress Adrienne Bailon, comedian Loni Love and the Style Network’s host Jeannie Mae.  Although they come from different walks of life, these ladies share one thing in common: they all know how to keep it real.

These five fabulous women create an amazing dynamic for the show, discussing topics revolving around beauty, fashion, relationships and giveaways for their live audience members, who they interact with regularly, making them feel as much a part of the conversation as possible.  As a viewer, the show is  fun to watch because they are honestly saying everything you are thinking.  They do not hesitate to state their opinions to one another or to step on anyone’s toes, which creates great conversation amongst their round table.

All of the women have contrasting experiences within their personal lives, from new babies, to new marriages, relationships and transitions.  Some of these life experiences cause bumps in the road, while others  allow for smooth sailing.  The ladies’ chemistry is undeniable, transcending the screen and making viewers feel as though they are chatting it up with their girlfriends.

Various celebrity guests such as Ray J, Laurence Fishburn, Ross Mathews and Lauren and Nick Carter have been on the show.  The ladies of “The Real” are constantly engaging with their special guests, creating stimulating conversations that will leave you oohing, ahhing and laughing on your couch.

Quite frankly, my favorite episode of “The Real” was when the ladies had the pleasure of having Ray J on the show.  From previously watching “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” on VH1, I had many questions for Ray J on  why he put himself in such tumultuous situations and yet seemed so nonchalant about it.  The ladies of “The Real” asked all of my burning questions and surprisingly got some answers from  Ray J.

“The Real” is definitely a great addition to the lineup of morning talk shows.  It is refreshing to see a collection of strong, successful and opinionated women that honestly love what they are doing and are actually keeping it real.  If you are not able to catch “The Real” in the mornings you may go on the web at, and check up on episodes of the show.
