And the Emmy Award for best entertainment talk hosts goes to … Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley—co-hosts of daytime talker, “The Real.”
While the ecstatic (and stunned!) ladies all thanked their fans, Mowry-Housley was sure to send praises up to God for the milestone achievement that she says left her “seriously in awe.”
“God you are amazing!” wrote the outspoken Christian media personality on Instagram after the surreal big moment at the 45th annual ceremony, adding, “You never cease to amaze!”
“The Real,” which first debuted in 2013 to appeal to a younger generation, was a radical idea, in that, it featured only minority hosts that were either black, Asian or Latino. No one knew whether or not it would work, but this latest achievement has left no doubt: “The Real” has caught on in a major way.
“To be a cast of diverse women, this means so much to us,” said Mowry-Housley whose new interior design special, “The Housleys,” aired Tuesday, May 8th at 11pm EST on HGTV. Her husband Adam Housley and the couple’s two kids, Aden, 5, and Ariah, 2, were also featured.
“We literally got off the stage, turned the corner and huddled in a prayer and we were just like, ‘Thank You, God,’” said Bailon in a post-show interview with Entertainment Tonight. “We are so grateful and we will never, ever forget this moment, and the way we feel.”
