New Talk Show Called "The Real" is Debuting, Just Guess Whose Hosting...

The Real Talk Show
There is a new talk show coming to airwaves on July 15th. It is called The Real Talk Show. It will have a similar format to the View and The Talk. Several woman around a table discussing topics that are relative in the media and amongst women, with the occasional guest. The hosts will consist of Adrienne Bailon, Tamar Braxton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeanie Mai, & Loni Love. Each of these women are of different ages, in different stages of life and have their own career (well at least 4 of them do in my eyes). Let's get know them, shall we? LOL

Tamar Braxton


For those of you who have lived under a rock for the last 3 years then you would need a crash course in this hosts reality TV takeover. Her name is Mrs. Tamar Braxton-Herbert but most of her Tamartians (nickname she gave her fans) know her as Tamar Braxton the loud mouth of the Braxton sisters. She is probably one of the most controversial and most beloved reality stars in reality TV history. She is one of 5 Braxton sister (they also have a brother Michael but he's not involved in the show) on the hit reality TV show the Braxton Family Values and Tamar & Vince on WEtv. Originally Tamar had a small career in R&B as a solo artist and in a group with her sisters called the Braxtons. But after that fizzled she began singing background for her older sister Toni Braxton for quite some time. She got married to her music mogul husband Vincent Herbert in 2008. Just a few days ago it was announced that Tamar gave birth to beautiful healthy baby boy. She also topped the charts with her singles Love and War and The One. Both singles have been number 1 on iTunes since their release. Tamar is just taking over!




Adrienne Bailon


Adrienne Bailon came onto the scene by way of a Pop group named 3LW. She was the lead singer and they had a few hits until they fizzled out. Hits like No More (Baby I'm a Do Right), Playas Gon Play, and I Do (Wanna Get Close to You). The group eventually disbanded and each girl went their separate ways. Adrienne became a celebrity correspondent on many red carpets for BET, MTV, Vh1 and more. She also did correspondent work for the Maury show, E!, and Access Hollywood. Currently she has a recurring reality TV show with her best friend Julissa on Style Network called Empire Girls: Julissa and Adrienne and a straight to DVD movie called All You've Got with Ciara (Pretty good movie if ask me). She has been romantically linked to many people (Fabolous, Ne-Yo, Bow Wow etc) but it is unclear if the rumors are true. For certain it has been confirmed that she had a long relationship with model and reality TV star Rob Kardashian. Rob cheated on Bailon which caused the breakup. Currently she is being linked to an A&R exec and manager (to rapper Fabolous) Lenny Santiage b.k.a. Lenny S. 
Loni Love


Loni Love is a comedian by trade. She has been named by both Variety and Comedy Central as one of the Top Ten Comedians to Watch. She has had much success in stand-up being given spots on Comedy Central, ComicView, Comics Unleashed, The Jay Leno Show, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, The Best Damn Sports Show Period, etc. She was given 1 hour Comedy Central stand up in 2010 called America’s Sister.

Tamera Mowry-Housley


Tamera Mowry has been famous since her teenage years. She was one half of the hit UPN/CW sitcom Sister Sister, where two twins find out about the other as teens and live in a mixed family home. After the show was cancelled Tamera and her sister continued acting in teen movies and Disney films such as Twitches 1 and 2, Seventeen Again and more. Although Tia received a acting gig on the CW/BET hit The Game (originally it was a role meant for Tamera), Tamera wasn't seen much. She also had a recurring role as Dr. Kayla Thornton on the medical drama Strong Medicine. They both landed a reality TV show on the Style Network in 2011 called Tia and Tamera after their 1 hour special Tia and Tamera was such a big success. Tamera was her sassy self and viewers loved her vibrant bubbly personality. Soon after Tamera married her long time boyfriend Fox News Correspondent Adam Housley, got pregnant, and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Aden.

Her entire career she dedicated her work to making women feel beautiful besides just looking beautiful. 
*Side Note - She is also a happily married woman!

Her mantra: Let's Wear Heels as High as Our Hopes!




What do I Think? Well...


It seems like Fox is trying to compete with The View and The Talk. They are doing a different level though which I like. All the women on this panel are some where around my age. They are no older than 40 but no younger 23. Which gives Fox an entire demographic that neither CBS nor ABC have tapped in. What appeals to young teens and women? Fashion, Celebrity Drama, Beauty, and Hair. And of course your occasional guy candy and "girl talk" like getting pregnant, dating, or being a newlywed. With this panel I believe Fox can't loose. They have women who have different career backgrounds, different family lives, different ethnicity's all rolled up into one show which is really cool. Each lady has something different to offer the panel and I especially excited about Jeannie Mai. I love her! Her style sense is mad cool plus her attitude is so chill. I would love to meet her in person if I could! Of course I'm glad that Tamar can add talk show host to her roster of becoming a superstar, I love Loni Love and I'm REALLY happy that she is getting a push. I've been waiting on Tamera Mowry-Housley to be able to do her own thing for a long time and I'm glad she was able to get this. She's funny, smart, and has a lot of sass that would bring some serious color to the color. As far as Adrienne Bailon I can do without but that doesn't mean I'm not happy for her being able to land the hosting gig.


The show is set to premiere on July 15th in major areas: New York; Los Angeles; Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Houston; and Tampa. It has a 4 episode Test Run, if all goes well it will go national. Take a Look for Yourself and Tell Me What You Think!



Congrats to all the ladies I'm happy for them!
