The Real is taking daytime talk to a whole different level. The Root sat down with two of the hosts.
Last Monday a new talk show debuted on Fox, and it’s aiming to change the face of daytime television. Unlike other shows that are hosted by multiple women, The Real stars five women in various stages of their lives and is full of diversity.
Hosted by Tamar Braxton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon, The Real “reflects the home audience and unapologetically says what women are actually thinking,” according to production company Telepictures. “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.”
The Real is a much-needed break from the seriousness of daytime talk shows, and according to Braxton, everyone’s personality plays a huge role in the daily subject matter.
Braxton and Bailon stopped by The Root’s office on Monday to discuss their talk show.
The Root: So, what separates The Real from all the other group-hosted talk shows?
Adrienne Bailon: I would say the five of us girls. I think the chemistry that we have. You know, we’re obviously a bit younger … and, I think that, you know, the show in itself is very different. We, you know, are trying to gear more towards the educated. It’s a fun show. It’s a funny show. We have game show segments that we do—“Fake It or Take It” … you know, these really, really fun things, games that we’re actually playing with our audience, where they can actually get Jimmy Choos. They get involved in the show … it’s a fun show! Feel-good TV.
