So you might think a show featuring a group of women sitting around a table discussing hot topics is nothing new (ie The View and The Talk), but when The Real premieres today you’ll quickly realize you’ve never seen a female-driven talk show quite like this before.
Co-hosts Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeannie Mai, Tamar Braxton and Adrienne Bailon break down girl talk like no one else, exploring everything from interracial couples to cheating to the hottest shoes of summer. Oh, and the premiere episode airing today involves a twerking segment, which in and of itself is worth a tune-in!
I was invited to the premiere taping and couldn’t wait to see what the camaraderie would be like between these five very different women. After hearing about the arguments and feuds between co-hosts on those other talk shows, I wondered if I was going to find myself in the middle of diva antics and awkward drama.
While Loni, Tamera, Tamar, Adrienne and Jeannie haven’t been working together that long just yet, so far there is nothing but love on The Real set.
Filming on the Warner Bros. lot on Ellen’s stage while that show is on hiatus, The Real is pure fun. They talk, they laugh, they act a little crazy and they give away amazing bags, ladies. On the first ep one lucky audience member scored a gorgeous Louis Vuitton that had the rest of us sitting around her green with envy. Not in the LA area? One lucky at-home viewer can win the same bag right here.
Currently The Real is only airing in select markets on FOX, so check your local listings to find out if and when you can find it on a TV near you!
