Jeannie Mai gives an update on her surgery
November 3rd, 2020 under The Real. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday, Jeannie Mai announced that she was forced to drop out of Dancing with the Stars because of a medical emergency. The Real host found out that she was suffering from epiglottitis, and she needed surgery to correct the condition that could have potentially killed her.

“I would never imagine ever having to write this, but I made it safely out of my emergency surgery. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Nasseri who identified my potentially life-threatening condition. What simply started as a sore throat had unbeknownst to me become a dangerous infection that already closed at least 60% of my airway and resulted in a throat abscess that spread in a matter of 3 days,” Mai said. “Although I am grateful to be recovering safely, I can’t lie… I am devastated by the fact that my journey with #DWTS will end this way 🥺😞 Dancing on this show has been the most exhilarating adventure. I’ve gained both beautiful friendships and loving supporters.”

While she won’t be able to compete on Dancing anymore, hopefully, they can find something else for her to do when she is better. Maybe she can replace Tyra Banks, who shed crocodile tears for Mai on the ABC competition show last night.


Jeannie Mai is forced to drop out of Dancing with the Stars

Jeannie Mai is in the hospital for surgery this morning, and she is forced to drop out of Dancing with the Stars. The Real host is suffering from epiglottitis, a potentially life threatening inflammatory condition. According to the Mayo Clinic, the condition occurs when “the epiglottis — a small cartilage \”lid\” that covers your windpipe — swells, blocking the flow of air into your lungs.”

“My doctors discovered a health concern with my throat which requires immediate attention and surgery,” she told Good Morning America in an exclusive statement. “I am heartbroken that my DWTS journey has to end here.”

“I have pushed myself to new limits physically and mentally, and I am so proud of how far we’ve come,” she added.

Her partner, Brandon Armstrong, told GMA he is heartbroken, but he is praying she has a speedy recovery.

Due to her leaving the show unexpectedly, tonight’s double elimination will only be a single one.

Get well soon. I am sure Mama Mai will have tons of soup waiting for you.


Who is the lone holdout on a Living Single revival?
October 22nd, 2020 under Queen Latifah, The Real. [ Comments: none ]

Kim Coles was on The Real today, and the hosts asked her to get real about the prospect of will there ever being a Living Single revival?

Coles told them there is a lot of talk about it. However, there is one thing that is stopping them from moving forward. She said that the producer/creator, Yvette Lee Bowser, feels that “it is all or nothing.” That means, according to Coles, “unless everyone says yes, it won’t happen.”

Loni Love was paying attention to the actress’ words and wanted to know who was the person who is saying no. Coles wouldn’t say who or what sex they are, which means we have to guess who it is?

Is it Queen Latifah, Erika Alexander, T.C. Carson, John Henton, Kim Fields, and Mel Jackson? We know it is not Coles, so my money is on Queen Latifah. Then again, it could be Carson, who had issues with the writers, and that caused him to be fired from the sitcom. Who do you think it is?


Garcelle Beauvais goes from Real Housewives to The Real
August 25th, 2020 under The Real. [ Comments: none ]

Last month, Tamera Mowry announced she was leaving The Real to spend some real quality time with her family. Today, the talk show revealed who will be replacing her. Starting in on September 21st, Garcelle Beauvais will be sitting next to Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Adrienne Houghton.

“I am thrilled to be joining the dynamic, bold and diverse women on the award-winning talk show The Real,” Garcelle said. “My love for pop culture and news blended with my natural gift of gab, has always made me gravitate towards a talk show environment. It’s also exciting that it’s happening right after my amazing time joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

Beauvais has always been vocal about her life and other things, so I think she will be a great addition to the table. Although, she will not be sitting next to her co-hosts when the season starts. That is because they will be virtually hosting for the time being.


Tamera Mowry is no longer Real
July 14th, 2020 under The Mowry Siblings, The Real. [ Comments: 2 ]

Seven years ago, Tamera Mowry went from actress to one of the co-hosts of The Real. Now, she feels it is time to move on from the daytime talk show and try something new. She broke the news yesterday on her social media because she someone else was planning on breaking it.

For seven years, my home and heart has been at The Real. The friendships that I’ve made there will last a lifetime, and the people that I’ve had the blessing to interview have changed my life for the better. I’m so proud of what all the ladies and I have accomplished there, including two well-deserved NAACP Image Awards and a Daytime Emmy. However, all good things must come to an end, and it’s with a bittersweet smile that I announce that I am moving on from The Real. To my fellow hosts, I love you, I will miss you, and I will always be there for you. Thank you for teaching me, supporting me, and loving all of me. Sisters forever. I’ll be rooting for you, as I look forward to spending more time with my family, pursuing amazing new opportunities, and embarking on the next chapter of my life.

She did not say what her next job will be, but there were rumors that she and her twin, Tia, were trying to revive Sister, Sister. I would be up for that.

Mowry is the second person to leave the show this season. Amanda Seales announced she would not be returning for her second season last month. No word who will be joining Jeannie Mae, Adrienne Bailon, and Loni Love. I hope they consider Tisha Campbell to fill one of the two slots. She meshes really well with them. Maybe the fifth person could be a man like Finesse Mitchell. Campbell and Mitchell played spouses on the now cancelled Outmatched, so they already have chemistry together.

Who do you want to see join The Real?
