Vincent ‘The” Herbert pulled the idea of a talk show out his hat and it is surely at hit. The talk show ‘The Real’ consists of comedienne Loni Love, actress Tamera Mowry-Housley, singer/actress Adrienne Bailon, and celebrity make-up artist turned Style Network host Jeannie Mai giving their opinions on the latest topics, trends news and entertainment. It is a younger version of ‘The View’ with cuter outfits lol.
The show did a trial run last season on a few networks to see if ratings would pick up. It did not air in my city so I had to catch it on YouTube and I was pleasantly surprised. At first glance you would assume that it would be a daytime talk show knock off, but the ladies actually bring their A game. They are open, honest and entertaining which is ideal for ratings. I am glad they did not choose “the norm” when it came to choosing the panel, so that the younger audience can relate more. In one episode they gave the woman with the worst purse (worn or torn) a brand new Louis Vuitton as a give away. I wished I was in the audience that day, what woman doesn’t love a new purse right?! The show is going to air on local stations and rebroadcast on BET. Check your local listings for times. I will be watching. The promo for the show is below.
