NE-YO On His Acting Aspirations

Adrienne, “Beauty is Not Just on the Outside!”

NE-YO On His Acting Aspirations

NE-YO: You know what, I told, I told my agent, I don’t want… I don’t want them to give me any roles just because I’m NE-YO. I actually want to audition for it. If I suck, don’t give it to me. Like, I want to work for it.

Tamera Mowry-Housley: I heard that.

NE-YO: So I probably shouldn’t have said that ‘cause uh…

[The Real hosts laugh.]

NE-YO: I’ve been going on these auditions and I ain’t got nothing so…

[The Real hosts laugh.]

NE-YO: It’s a little humbling, a little bit, but I’m waiting on the right role to roll around for me. I just ain’t come across the right one yet.

[The Real audience applauds.

About The Real

THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® and NAACP Image Award 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 Emmy® nominated hosts – Adrienne Houghton, 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. 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.
