The ladies of The Real TV show often made headlines for their engaging conversations, informative panels, and girl-talk sessions that felt like a group of besties gabbing at a slumber party.
But that changed when it was revealed Tamar Braxton would not be returning to the show. The remaining co-hosts, Adrienne Bailon, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, and Jeannie Mai, found themselves the subjects of negative press, which dominated headlines for weeks.
However, with season three approaching, Adrienne, Tamera, Loni, and Jeannie are optimistic. The ladies hosted their first live show at Essence Fest in New Orleans this weekend, where we caught up with the foursome.
Adrienne, Tamera, Loni, and Jeanie discussed how they deal with all the unfavorable press, what they have planned for forthcoming episodes, and how much they value their loyal fans.
“I think knowing the truth is what actually gives me peace at night,” 32-year-old Adrienne explained. “When people make up lies and stories you almost laugh at it. You’re like, this is so ridiculous, this is so stupid, and you go to sleep with peace.”
Fashion expert Jeanni brought it back to the fans and thanked them for being so devoted. “We love you guys, we see you,” the 37-year-old said.
As for what’s coming, Soul Plane actress Loni put it in the universe that Idris Elba, Drake, and Jennifer Lopez will be among the celebrities swinging by the set.
We’ll just have to stay tuned for season three of The Real on FOX.
