The Real


I must say, I am impressed with the diversity of the ladies selected for what I call a daily dose of “girl talk,” on the latest talk show called, “The Real.”

Tamar Braxton-Herbert, known as Tamar Braxton of the former R&B group, “The Braxtons,” has recently found success as a solo artist with her latest album, “Love and War.” She is also known for her popular phrases like “,” and “You tried it,” branding her TV personality on WE’s TV the “Braxton Family Values,” about the Braxton sisters. Soon she landed a spinoff, called “Tamar & Vince;” the reality series that follows her life as the wife of music executive Vince Herbert, and the changes that come with motherhood. Yesterday, she started “The Real” with a topic about the changes motherhood can take one’s relationship through; “and, I mean who ever said a kid is going to bring your marriage to a new level, clearly has never had a baby before,” she said.

Tamera Mowry-Housley agreed with Tamar, that children will test your marriage. “So, you have to make sure that you have a strong foundation before you have a baby,” she said. While I listened to the all grown up Tamera discuss life as wife and mother, I could not help but reminisce about her beginnings as a child star in a hit comedy “Sister, Sister.” Now she’s paired up with her sister once again in a reality series, “Tia & Tamera,” on the Style Network which follows her life with her sister as they try to balance it all, career and family.

The two mothers dominated the conversation, then Tamar ended with advice to all women, “…I just have to tell all the ladies, who are thinking about having a baby to save their relationship, (a Tamar smack lips, roll eyes moment) DO NOT DO THAT,” she said.

An applause followed her advice, that gave the very animated Adrienne Bailon a moment to chimed in. People feel that having a baby is the strongest bond that one can have with someone and “sadly,” get themselves caught up in the “oops, I am pregnant, will you marry me, sought of situation,” she said. The New Yorker, was the founding member of a girl group, “3LW,” and later became a star of Disney’s “The Cheetah Girls.”

Jeannie Mai represented women unsure if they wanted children. ”I feel like I am really struggling whether or not , I really want to have kids,” she said. Jeannie admits that it is hard to find time for her husband, ”The Hollywood Hunter” Freddy Harteis, due to the constant work and she does not know how a child can fit in the picture. Jeannie volunteers with organizations such as NightLight international. However, she is best known for hosting Style Network’s “How Do I Look?” and currently is the digital correspondent for NBC’s “Fashion Star.” She has a new weekly talk show, on Style Network called “Style Pop.”

Quiet through it all was comedian Loni Love, who only said a few words on the topic, “I don’t want no baby, or no husband!” Then she smoothly transitioned the conversation about having children to women who have them and want to bring them to every function, including girls night out. Loni, raised in the projects of Detroit, built a career and brand as a comedian and actress. Known for stand-up and a recurring role on “Chelsea Lately” and “The Smoking Gun Presents: The World’s Dumbest,” and is also the author of “Love Him or Leave Him,” a comical relationship book. Loni, had me in stitches as she gave her motherly, and sometimes big sister advice. She does not hold back as she says what others may be thinking.

Needless to say, I enjoyed the five women keeping it real with topics about, children, marriage, taking on the husband’s last name or not, and of course the beauty segment with a twist. What is girl talk without beauty talk?

“The Real” gets 5 stars for its unique young women with topics that women in their 20’s to 30’s can relate to. “The View,” does not have anything on the women who dare to take on challenges from their twitter fans and have candid conversations about their personal lives, making these celebrity women seem real and down to earth. Saying what’s on their minds through unedited comments and facial expressions that even had the “boyfriend” talking, made it worth breaking my no TV during the day rule. I am back to not watching TV during the day, but “The Real,” is a DVR must!
