*Thursday, September 22, on “The Real,” “Survivor’s Remorse” star Erica Ash shares details about her star-studded birthday celebration with comedian JB Smoove and actor Pooch Hall, which also included an impromptu serenade from R&B singer Joe.
Plus, co-host Adrienne Bailon admits she was once embarrassed when she couldn’t afford a hot lunch at school, and she compares the current school lunch program to a caste system!
Erica Ash’s Star-Studded Birthday Bash!
Erica Ash: It was like me and Joe and J. B. Smoove and Pooch Hall. And it was like a bunch of us just hanging out, everyone who had presented. And then I looked at my watch, I was like “Oh, my birthday’s in ten minutes.” And J. B. Smoove heard it and that was like it. He’s like, [imitates J. B. Smoove] “It’s your birthday! It’s your birthday! Oh my God. You got to get a cake. Somebody give me a cupcake. We got to get a candle.” So it’s like, it turned into this impromptu birthday and then Joe sang “Happy Birthday” to me.
[The Real audience claps.]
Erica: I know, right.
Adrienne Bailon: It doesn’t get any better than that.
Tamera Mowry-Housley: We actually have a clip of that. We have the tape.

About The Real
THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® nominated talk show on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network BET. Led by bold, diverse and outspoken hosts – Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley — these women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships. Emmy® nominated for Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment in its second season, THE REAL is unlike other talk shows, since each of the hosts are admittedly a “work in progress,” and fearlessly invites the viewers into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have turned the traditional talk show on its head. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, The Real originates from Los Angeles. Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) is Executive Producer.
