One of daytime’s greatest gambles has confirmed they’re right here to say. The Real celebrated its 1,000th present, an vital milestone for any daytime program.
On Monday (Feb. 17), Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and latest co-host Amanda Seales, celebrated The Real‘s 1,000th present with champagne, confetti, and retrospective packages.
“We really are the show that people doubted for a really long time,” Bailon stated.
“They never thought that a show like ours that represents women of color and women in general, that a show like ours would make it to the thousandth episode.”
Mai tearfully added that their vulnerability is what has resonated with their viewers earlier than Love interjected to offer a particular shout out.
“We also want to say something. I want to say Tamar Braxton, you are still our sister. This is your 1,000th episode too.”
Braxton was an unique co-host when the present premiered in 2013. She was then abruptly and controversially fired in 2016, which result in a public fallout between her and her former co-hosts.
Love has persistently been probably the most outspoken of Braxton’s firing and has tried to make peace with Braxton.
She even invited Braxton again on the present as a visitor final 12 months, which led to a different public spat between the 2 as a result of the singer felt she was getting used as a “marketing tool” and declined the invite.
So given Love and Braxton’s sordid historical past, was the host’s shout-out a real acknowledgment of Braxton’s contributions to The Real or a thinly veiled shady remark for the host that’s not on the desk?
